I want it to be Rochus, but probably will be Martin.

Re: Alberto Martin vs. Olivier Rochus - who will win?

Martin isn't playing sooo well (ok he won against roddick), that's why Olli will win. He's playing extremely well, probably his best tennis ever. And that's quite remarkable, I already said that several times in his career.

Haven't seen Martin play but Ollie was on fire in both of his matches, hope he can keep it up and beat Martin. This could be an excellent occasion for him to go deep this year.

They are both about the same height.

Rochus to win.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Re: Alberto Martin vs. Olivier Rochus - who will win?

Martin has the record but Rochus has the better form. But Rochus has never really impressed in the slams, either and he has a great chance for a R16 or even QF if he does well, and he probably knows it.

I find it tough to call though I think Rochus should come through.

Re: Alberto Martin vs. Olivier Rochus - who will win?

Interesting match.

Both guys are roadrunners with one-handers. Both have also had some very quick matches. The previous matches have all gone to Beto, so Oli would be due. Plus, compared to when they played before, Oli is playing some of the best tennis of his life in the last year or so.

Re: Alberto Martin vs. Olivier Rochus - who will win?

Having seen Ollie play against Faurel and Vanek there can be no doubt about it: Olivier will win !!! I have to agree; these opponents weren't the world's greatest players. So Martin defeated Roddick; but you have to admit that A-Rod was injured and doesn't like clay. And Kindlmann: who is that guy ? So I'm guessing: Ollie in 4 sets.

COME ON BELGIANS !!!
