Re: WWW Auckland R2: Montanes vs. Giraldo?

Who knows with Giraldo. Obviously he's the flashier of the two and the better shotmaker but Monty will give him nothing and will be solid throughout. I'll say Giraldo will get hot for one set but Monty will be too strong in the end.

Montanes in 3.

Re: WWW Auckland R2: Montanes vs. Giraldo?

Who knows, giraldo obviously the better player when on and he has been in recent matches so i'll go with santiago.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

I wasted a couple hours of my life watching Giraldo - DGT yesterday, and he was definately not on. At least from when I started watching at 41. Giraldo pushed throughout, and was pretty lucky getting the victory so easy. It didn't look like any of the players were acclimated to hard courts, and the reason he won was simply that Gimeno mistimed more shots than Giraldo. Of course saving 5/5 and taking 3/3 was very strong, but most of the points were horrible misses from Gimeno.

If Montanes played like he did at the end of the last season, I expect a routine victory. Of course Giraldo may again find his punishing strokes...

Monti in 3 - too quick and too strong.

Auckland really needs to be a clay court event given most of the players playing it

Giraldo is really good player, but weak mentally. Montanes will win.
