Monte Carlo contenders thread
Looking at the draw, only a few other possibilities other than Nadal. It is Nadal's to lose of course.
Fed whilst in poor form, has been getting the Wins lately more often. But his bad lapses will cost him against higher quality clay opponents. He has to face Simon,Verdasco, Robredo or Nalby, with Djoko or Gasquet waiting in SFs. Then he will likely have to face Nadal in final or Davydenko or Almagro.
The quality of nadal on clay will be evident after about 2 matches on the dirt. Others like Nalby haven't been playing well, he's been playing bad this yr(lots of long drawn out struggles). Gasquet bad. Almagro top form.
Djokovic plays same game on clay as on Hardcourt.
Davydenko may tire. He's a machine right now.
