The Road to Roland Garros Thread

Clay season has started, let's hope Misha will do well!

We start from Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters

Misha's half of the draw:

[1] Novak Djokovic (SRB) bye
Florent Serra (FRA) - Stephane Robert (FRA)
Ernests Gulbis (LAT) - Marco Chiudinelli (SUI)
Victor Hanescu (ROU) - [13] Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI)

[12] Tommy Robredo (ESP) - Horacio Zeballos (ARG)
Viktor Troicki (SRB) - Lukasz Kubot (POL)
David Nalbandian (ARG) - Andreas Beck (GER)
[7] Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) bye

[4] Marin Cilic (CRO) bye
Igor Andreev (RUS) - [WC] Simone Bolelli (ITA)
Olivier Rochus (BEL) - Andreas Seppi (ITA)
Albert Montanes (ESP) - [16] Marcos Baghdatis (CYP)

[10] Tomas Berdych (CZE) - Feliciano Lopez (ESP)
Qualifier - [WC] Richard Gasquet (FRA)
Julien Benneteau (FRA) - Qualifier
[6] Fernando Verdasco (ESP) bye

Misha plays 2nd round vs Nalbandian who beat A.Beck 6-3, 6-1.

My brother is heading to MC tomorrow with his wife and friends, they have tickets for QF and SF, he also hopes Misha will reach that stage

Not an easy draw but let's hope for the best!

Davai Misha!

Good luck!

Re: The Road to Roland Garros Thread

Wow, Jelena, you remembered what we had decided about the threads !!! wow that's cool !! Thanks for opening it by the way.

First match against Nalbandian... I'm so sad they play so early.. but I'm confident the winner can reach the semis because unfortunately Novak is not in his best form.

Re: The Road to Roland Garros Thread

Yes, Misha's fighting spirit vanquished Davis at the end of the first set.. now the second's a totally different story...

This is going to turn out into a three set classic. I love the points. So tactical, such nice games to watch...

Re: The Road to Roland Garros Thread

I won't comment on this, I'm too pissed off I'm just frustrated at Misha's bad luck in draws... Nalbandian in MC and Hewitt in Rome, while other seeds play some obscure unknown players for their first match... so unfair

Bad luck Youzhny, but keep trying and just focus on Paris and getting some wins on clay in the next few weeks!
