Re: WWW: French Open 1st round: Giraldo vs Nishikori

I really, really want Kei to win this, partially because I like him, and partially because, even though I like Santi, the bandwagoning on him is ridiculous.

The match is so unpredictable, I think Santi will win it solely on the fact I think Kei will have his serve destroyed throughout the match. However, it isn't a good match-up for Santi, and Kei can expose Santi's lack of movement and lack of consistency.

I'll say Giraldo in 4 or 5 sets.

The winner likely gets Djokovic on a tv court!

Re: WWW: French Open 1st round: Giraldo vs Nishikori

A shame that these 2 have to meet in the first round.

I guess I have a slight preference for Nishi but anyone will do, really.

Intriguing?

Nishikori will be lucky if he manages to get more than 5 games from the future RG champion

Re: WWW: French Open 1st round: Giraldo vs Nishikori

Giraldo wins this in four, with the fourth set being anywhere from 6-0 to 6-2. You've got a guy in Giraldo with awesome clay form playing a player that hasn't played on European clay all year (Kei's two challenger wins were in the States on rubico) and is just returning to the main tour with a protected ranking. I like Kei and was really impressed by his last two weeks in the challengers, but this is a really tough ask of him.

Re: WWW: French Open 1st round: Giraldo vs Nishikori

Kei will give all his heart but his time will come at Wimbledon, hopefully with a better draw. I also think Santiago in 4.

Re: WWW: French Open 1st round: Giraldo vs Nishikori

giraldo will win something like 6-2, 6-3, 6-2

he might even bagel kei once. This guy has taken down kohlschreiber and ferrero and made it look easy
