Re: 2012 Hamburg

With Almagro not 100% healthy i would say Cilic is biggest favorit, Simon howewer can be tough to beat on clay with his retrieving-pushing skills, but can´t see him defend his title

Re: 2012 Hamburg

If Almagro is fit he can win a title again. Hope he is.

Re: 2012 Hamburg

Ferrer should have played this one instead of Bastad.

More points to win, more money to win.

I actually think Bernard Tomic will easily win career-year mixed doubles slam in 2020.

Jealous? Yeah, you are, you dirty hater.

I also thought the same, he would be heavy favorit here and most likely got 500 points, but he played Acapulco, Barcelona - W+F and also Rotterdam and will play Beijing and probably indoor Valencia - that´s a lot of 500s, don´t need to play Hamburg, but agree this would be probably 500 points for him.

It's all about appearance fees though.

Reckon Flo Mayer has some good chances here to win.

Re: 2012 Hamburg

Why is Nadal not in the draw? He can win only on clay these days. Shouldn't have missed this chance to win a title

Re: 2012 Hamburg

Almagro has to withdraw, no point in keep on playing with all the pain plus the struggle it gives on every match, regardless if he can still get a few wins. That would help Fabio too

Watch the Warlocq get the upset against Gilles on 1R, making it 3-0 in the year against him!
