Post Australian Open R2: Albert Montanes (25) vs. Xavier Malisse: WWW?

So, who wins this? Interesting match, as any player could win. I hoenstly don't think it'll be as easy for Malisse as it looks (Montanes isn't exactly a hardcourt God) and he could lose if Albert is in good form.

I think Albert will win this in 5.

Malisse has set the encounter with roger as his goal, I hope he will make it. He seems to be in a very good form, X in four.

'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.

Better hardcourter winning is justice.

I want a Malisse/Federer match, Montanes will just get wacked by Federer, he's had his chance in the past.

I'm going with Might Malisse in 4 close sets, just to see him lose to Federer in 4

Montanes in 5? I really don't know. It can go either way.

I don't know if a 5 set match against Brown is encouraging, but Malisse should be a step up. I think Malisse in 4, but I could also see him blowing a 2 set lead with Montanes winning in 5

This has 5 sets written all over it. Leaning towards Xavier.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
