Who will win the RR group of death in Buenos Aires?

The winner of the elimination match G.Cañas-J.P.Guzmán will be in the RR group with Lucho Horna and Nalbandián. So in the very likely case that Willy defeats Guzmán, three of the main contenders to the title will be in the same group. In fact, we're talking about the nr 1 seed and the two title winners so far in the south american claycourt swing.

Who will emerge to the QFs?

I say Willy. This man is on a mission. Nalbo is on a slump and has never cared for MM tournies nor done especially well in Buenos Aires. You can't completely discount Lucho, but I don't see him defeating both Nalbo and Willy.

Re: Who will win the RR group of death in Buenos Aires?

I would say Cañas because of the surface but he'll be very tired after winning Costa du Sauipe and playing the qualy against I don't remember who. I vote for David

Just to be different Horna.

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".

Re: Who will win the RR group of death in Buenos Aires?

I think the real question is how much or what it is they Tourney people had to do to get Nalbandian to play here

You can see this group having a 1 a piece split, I'll go with El Rey, as I hope he wins the title to get his season on the move.

The same reason why Federer plays Basel.

Re: Who will win the RR group of death in Buenos Aires?

I really have missed something when I see four players in a group now!

did not know

I hope Nalbandian winning it!

Albert Costa forever +++ Tommy Haas +++ Ivo Karlovic +++ Peter Luczak


RAFA owns Fedclown ~~~ H2H record 23-14 -- ~~~

Byebye Fedjerk, your dominance period is over! Nadal will win like 10 more Slams!

[Original signature for 10 years, only the h2h record updated ]

Zero tolerance against dopers!

No, it's winner of Cañas and Guzman that is in the group.

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".

Nalbandian.

Canas will have to play on Tuesday already. He'll beat Guzman but be too tired for the RR matches. 6 matches in 6 days.

Re: Who will win the RR group of death in Buenos Aires?

Even if Willy is playing great, and we know Horna, Nalbo is superior when he's playing like he can. He wants to play this tournament so he's going to be "inspired" (not like at the indoor season the last year that he was there for the MC when he was still sick and the last thing he wanted was to play) But the problem is his knee. (he got injured in October last year)Seems that he's not okay yet, according to his kinesiology.
In Nalby's normal condition and with him wanting to win, I'd say Nalbandian without any doubts. But I'm not sure he's 100% to play yet.
