Davydenko vs Moya
H2H is 4-1 in Moya's favoure. On paper it looks good for Moya - 2 easy wins against Marin and Youzhny, both in straight sets, but the reality is different. Moya plays bad, in last match against Youzhny he was playing very bad, but it was Youzhny who looked even worser, the only component which is good in Moya's game is his serve and nothing else. While Davydenko is showing great tennis, he has won 7 straight matches, his in perfect condicion, I don't see any problems for Davydenko to win this one, the maximum Moya can do here is to win a set, I will not touch the handicap, as Davydenko isn't the one who always wins big.Also Davydenko beated Moya just 1 month ago in Estoril, when he wasn't in his best condition, now he's in his best.
Robredo vs Dlouhy
I really don't know what happened with Acasuso in last match, but I know that something was wrong there, as Dlouhy won in 4 sets, till the middle of 2nd set Acasuso was dominating.Robredo should win this one in straight sets, despite that he struggled a little bit against unknowed Bozaljic, mostly it was because Bozaljic 1st serve was quite fast(about 215km/h). Dlouhy don't have that kind of weapon, and in rally's I don't see any chance for him to beat Robredo, who's in my opinion is in his best form ever.
Pick:Robredo to win 3-0
Bookmaker:Bet at home
M. V. Arguello vs R. Sluiter
I feel like I have missed something here, as Arguello is setted as favourite against Sluiter. The thirst thing here is that what I saw from Arguello today wasn't something huge, he was running like mad and as Grosjean is far from his optimal form, he won a lot of points from that Grosjean was forced to make that one extra shot, and he wasn't ready for that. Second thing is that I doubt that this guy has ever played 5 setter, well today he did, and I think that after such long match he is excausted, as he's only challanger player, and here I see big advantage for Sluiter as he had 2 very easy first round maches, he has wasted minimum energy and he rested today. 3 thing is that Sluiter has played in many grand slams, while for Arguello this is the first time his in main draw, so the experience is in Sluiter side. And the last thing is that Sluiter isn't that bad at all, even if Nieminen wasn't 100% healthy he knowed that, but still played, also in 2nd round he beated easily Lapentti, maybe Lapentti wasn't in good form, but still an easy win, if he wouldn't be in good form I'm sure that it would be much harder match for him, so 2.40 on Sluiter is value+ good bet in my opinion.
Schiavone vs Pennetta
H2H is 2-0 in Schiavone's favoure. Actually not so many arguments about this one. Schiavone on clay in my opinion is better player,Penneta is good opponent for her as Penneta isn't player who plays a lot of winners, it's the same as Schiavone plays, and in this kind of match I see Schiavone as a winner, H2H only prooves my thougts, despite that both matches were played on hard, on clay it should be the same. Simply Schiavone's class is higher than Pennetta's.
