Battle of the "scum" Part II - very possible this week!

Henman has Chris Rochus R1 and then a potentially tricky R2 vs Calleri / Wawrinka...but really I'd expect him to make the QF. Bandy has, at worst, Lopez to worry about R2.

So...good chance for an immediate rematch between the 2 good friends

Hope Tim kicks his ass.

David sucks now but Tim is no match to win.

You Sun journalist Jez.

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".

Basel is indoor carpet right? I'd guess that gives Tim a little more chance...

Yes, he won't beat Calleri or Wawrinka.

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".

Re: Battle of the "scum" Part II - very possible this week!

Draw is quite good for Tim...assuming he won't be playing in Paris, his best 7th result will be 25pts...

He is provisionally 38th...70pts off a place in the top 32. Therefore, a real push for the SF could just about get him there. A QF defeat should put him in the top 35 which wouldn't be bad...

Kiss my ass

I'd be more worried about Stan...but I still think Tim should win it.

How much does Rupert pay you?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Seeding is not always good Just look at the horror draws by players who are seeded.
