Who will win the battle of Independiente and Racing? Sleepy Gaudio or Stoned Chucho
The tournament has had many excellent opening round matches on paper, then there is the Vliegen/Hernych 2nd round classic along with the Kiefer/Llodra match which they will have to turn people away cause of overcrowding.
The other 2nd round match that I know tennis will be the winner is between Acasuso and Gaudio.
I can't whatever result as long as whoever wins makes the quarter finals.
These guys know each other very well and it will be difficult for them, but they have played 7 times and it's 4-2 on clay to Gaston, though I wouldn't be surprised at all if Acasuso wins tomorrow.
Gaudio vs Acasuso
2001 Buenos Aires Clay SF Acasuso 3-6 6-1 6-3

Gaudio leads 4-3
“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
Machado wins 6-2 6-1
I definitely would have preferred Gaba winning as he needs the points much more, but Jan would have beaten him anyway. I expect Hajek to destroy Machado, like 6-1 6-2.
