Federer v Djokovic
Volandri v Verdasco
Berdych v qualifier
Nalbandian v Nadal
The 2nd quarter is the hardest to predict with so many volatile players like Gonzalez, Acasuso, Volandri, Verdasco and Ferrero (who may or may not be sick). I reckon we'll be seeing two unexpected QF appearances from this section.
In the 3rd quarter, I can see Berdych knocking out Almagro for some reason. I also think Davydenko, even though he has an easy draw, will make his usual early exit from this event and allow someone random to advance.
I reckon Nalbandian will come alive for this tourny and take advantage of his section. I don't see anyone upsetting Fed, Rafa or Nole.
The second quarter is a good chance for a player to pick up some SF points because clearly there is no big favourite. Gonzalez actually does have a chance to defend his SF points if he plays a great tournament. If Gasquet does have a good tournament, he has shown he is capable of doing so in MC, then he will get a good points boost. In fact, he has 45 points to defend in all 3 clay AMS events + RG. Even an average performance such as a QF, two third rounds and a fourth round would probably see him jump into a position vying for top 10.
