Re: Matches that could go either way

I can't agree with Roddick - Mahut and RRH - Milos. Both the french and the canadian are very big favourites.

I would add to the list Anderson - Machado, since the south american is not good on clay, and it's Machado best surface...

Rui really needs that one to get an Olympic spot. If he loses, he will be dependent on many things to be in London, I think.

He better show up tomorrow, it's a very winnable match.

Re: Matches that could go either way

Giraldo vs Falla is probably the biggest one. Countrymen, good friends, Falla has a lot on the line, Giraldo has a bad GS record but is in good form. Both are flashy, inconsistent players. I expect that match to be nervy and poor quality, but very tight, definitely five sets.

Re: Matches that could go either way

Leo is going to swat Oli off the court and that match isn't going to be too overly tight. Oli does not have the weapons on this surface to beat Leo Mayer.

I think Roddick-Mahut will not be tight scoreline wise. It will be straight sets, but the winner is questionable.

Andujar-Hanescu, given their H2H history, should be tight, Seppi-Davydenko almost definitely will be a tight match, Bellucci-Troicki has drama written all over it, Llodra-GGL I expect to go five, and I think Stepanek-Goffin will be tight.

Don't be surprised to see Querrey give trouble to Tipsarevic as well. Rosol-Berlocq is another one with tight-score potential.

Re: Matches that could go either way

Ruben is definitely going to beat Raonic, and straight sets wouldn't surprise me one bit. I would be surprised if Milos wins. Ruben is too crafty and too dogged for someone like Raonic to handle.

Not matter what you say, it will be a big surprise for any tennis knower, if RRH manage to get the win, let alone winning in str8's...

We all know that it's impossible for you to use logic in a match that involves a player you like
