yeah,poor Richard. if thats true, it'd be his 3rd consecutive 1st R loss.
David Ferrer's also not looking good...
and Nikolay Davydenko, can he survive under Karlovic's power?
Coria Carla'll help him

Based on Serra's recent form, Ferrer is going home early.

Also backing Melzer to beat Ginepri.

Ljubicic will probably lose to Gucione who can be pretty tricky.

There an only be One Nadal

Ferrer and Gasquet are in trouble.
