wouldn't a Hewitt vs. Ferrero final be wonderful...with Juanqui winning of course!

Juanqui has an interesting draw. George Bastl, Pete's conqueror at Wimbledon, awaits in the 2nd round. Taylor Dent in the 16's, Lapentti in the quarters, and maybe even his compatriot Alex Corretja in the Semis! Blake is a bit of a question cuz he just withdrew from Hong Kong with an injury...

I like it too. He can deal with big servers as he's shown time and time again.

VAMOS JUANQUI!!! Asia is your continent.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

A Hewitt Ferrero matchup would be wonderful

But I'll try not to get too far ahead of myself

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Me too. An encore of a spanish final will be much better. But having said that, watching JC beating Hewitt will be such a pleasure.

i'm glad that he has a 1st round bye, so if he's tired out from this long week in HK, he at least has an extra day or two to rest.

the identity of Juanqui's 2nd round opponent is now known. he'll face Magnus Norman, a former French Open Finalist, who took out Bastl 6-3, 6-0 in his 1st round. Norman could be a tricky opponent, but he has been struggling in his comeback from injury and Ferrero should take him out in straights...if it ever stops raining in Tokyo!

Maybe the rain is a good sign. I mean, it rained last week and Juan Carlos ended up dropping only one set Perhaps the gods are looking favorably on him

Has James Blake's opponent won through yet?

no, the Verkerk/Vacek match hasn't been played yet.

yes, the rain is a good sign. Juanqui must win Tokyo now!

Perhaps the Gods feel sorry for letting that Costa guy win you-know-what over you-know-who.

Vamos Juan Carlos!
