Monte-Carlo Predictions

With Gasquet out, is there any chance that the final will be anything other than Federer v Nadal?

Off course, there are the usual dark horses:
Nalbandian, Davydenko, Coria, Gaudio, Ferrer, Ferrero and Safin. Maybe even Ljubicic and Berdych could also be considered outsiders. Or maybe Ivo Karlovic could come storming through the field. But what do we really expect?

Predictions please!

Re: Monte-Carlo Predictions

Karlovic

I think Nadal vs Federer is going to be this year's final.

There an only be One Nadal

No way. A Masters Series event has never been that predictable, especially on clay. I'll be very surprised if Nalbandian makes it to the semis. He didn't win any matches at MC, Rome or Hamburg last year. Davydenko is playing his first clay tournament of the year. I would rate his chances of reaching the semis at about 50-50.

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.

It would appear from that post that you are the one acting under the influence of certain illegal substances.

Re: Monte-Carlo Predictions

So many things can happen...........I doubt Nalbandian will make it to the SF, but it would be nice to see him play Nadal. Coria and Safin can tire each other out making the winner's next opponent have an easy match.......... Ferrer can play a fantastic match and take out Roger......... Safin took out Gaudio in straight sets in Valencia........that may be some indication of Gaudio's play this season. The only certainty is that we'll be seeing Nadal at the finals.

Re: Monte-Carlo Predictions

I will make a bold guess at who will be in the quarter finals and what will happen from then onwards.
Quarter Finals

(1) FEDERER, Roger SUI v CHELA, Juan Ignacio ARG - 6-2 7-5

SANTORO, Fabrice FRA v (5) DAVYDENKO, Nikolay RUS - 7-5 3-6 4-6

ACASUSO, Jose ARG v MONFILS, Gael FRA - 1-6 6-4 6-2

(6) CORIA, Guillermo ARG v (2) NADAL, Rafael ESP - 4-6 3-6

Semi Finals

(1) FEDERER, Roger SUI v (5) DAVYDENKO, Nikolay RUS - 6-4 7-6

ACASUSO, Jose ARG v (2) NADAL, Rafael ESP - 7-6 3-6 2-6

Final

(1) FEDERER, Roger SUI v (2) NADAL, Rafael ESP - Who knows?


Of course, the chances of me getting any of this correct are tantamount to the chances of Murray defeating Nadal on clay with a double bagel and I realise this.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game
