3rd round: G. Gaudio v F. Mantilla. What kind of court assignment will these two get?

It should be a great match-up of claycourt stylists that could turn into a long encounter if Mantilla fights as hard as he did today. Gaudio won the last one in Barcelona quite comfortably, though. Will this one be placed on Chatrier for the French crowd to admire?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Far from it, actually - it'll be hard for him to root for either man, I think.

My guess is Lenglen. Gaudio was scheduled on Court 2 today with Nadal and Federer taking over Chatrier and Lenglen. ESPN will be screaming murder if Nadal and Federer are placed on different courts and play at the same time again. So, my guess is Nadal and Federer will be on Chatrier with Gaudio on Lenglen.

If Gaudio was 5th seed but not defending champion they would put this on Court 2 or something but as he is defending champion it will be on the bullring at least.

I agree.
But then again he was scheduled for Court 2 for Round 2, so who knows?
It wouldn't totally surprise me if he gets Court 2 again.

FEDERER 17 & Counting (fingers crossed)

It's ok because Gaudio will beat Nadal on Chariter. As long as he plays and wins his big matches on the main court then it's ok. I don't think they would be sticking Nadal out of court 2 for any of his matches if he was the defending champ.

very proud of felix! he will pull the upset!!

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??
