TOP 4 seeds go into the SF of RG? or who cannot make it?

federer shouldnt have a problem to go into the SF
so does nadal and nalbandian, i hope...

now it seems to be depending on ljubicic, who actually has a relatively easy road to SF compare to nalbandian and nadal, imo...
no?

someone tell me please when was the last time the top 4 seeds into SF in RG???
(i think it must be quite a while....)

is it going to happen this year?

discuss

Federer and Nadal will be there without a doubt. Nalbandian will have a very tough match against Davydenko. This can be the upset. Not too sure about Ljubicic, since I didn't see him play since the beginning of the tournament.

The best news is that for once we won't have a fluke finalist in the final of Roland Garros. Not that anyone who makes the final of a grand slam is a fluke, but it'll be nice if we get a finalist who doesn't get pounded by a far superior player.

agree


so lets hope all four of them can make their ways into the SF....


(though i think some fedtards will sincerely pray and hope rafa/nalby can stop before that....)

Ljubicic is 65% lock for SF, tomorrow can be tricky, but everytime i have the same feeling, he comes out and smokes the opponent so im thinking tomorrow he will win 6-3 6-4 6-2 or lose 4-6 7-5 5-7 4-6

you guys underestimate ramirez-hidalgo. watch out, ivan is no clay specialist and has failed to show up at grand slams. he also is very tired.

I think DavyD will pull of the Nalby upset, he has been very impressive. Possibly the most impressive seed in the tournie so far

My great tennis loves-Roger Federer, Paul Henry Mathieu and Marat Safin

Grigor Dimitrov & David Goffin - The future of tennis

Allez - Jerzy Janowicz, Jose Acasuso , Lleyton, Djokovic, Nalbandian, Clement, Nicolas Almagro, Stanislas Wawrinka

Ai Se Eu Te Pego - Michel Telo

I think Ivan will not make it, Nalbandian is a 50% chance. Roger and Rafa will make it.

A roger rafa final is a dead lock...rafa will be well rested after his one day break and will thrash hewitt in 3

I somehow don't see Ljubicic beating Ramirez-Hidalgo...of the four, he is the biggest question mark purely on his lack of clay court results at this level and facing a tough clay court opponent.

first- Ivan is not tired we all should know this by now, from last year
and 2nd Hidalgo does have 3 good wins this year, but 2 are vs Coria, and we all should know that coria SUCKS this years he gives up 4 games via Double fault per match.

Are you crazy?

I can easily see Benneteau in the final

NALBANDIAN / SAFIN / FERRERO / MOYA / LUCZAK / DEL POTRO




Berdych - Andreev - Acasuso - Mathieu - Tursunov - Gaudio - Simon



Vliegen * Malisse * Chela * Zabaleta * Gasquet * Calleri * Djokovic * Starace


Retired and not so active players¬

SJENG SCHALKEN [] PAT RAFTER [] THOMAS MUSTER [] GUGA KUERTEN

You were wrong, Ivan is far better player on clay than you give him credit to be! And he can loose to Benneteau only because of the pressure and not 'cause he sucks on clay!
