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.

Nadal will win MC in his sleep. He doesn't even need to hit his forehand to win this.

Re: Monte Carlo contenders thread

Nadal will prove too good for the rest once again and I'd say MC is where he is LEAST likely to lose in the run up to RG.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Monte Carlo contenders thread

If Nadal does not win Montecarlo people will say he is finished. If he cannot win titles on clay people will say he is over the hill.
