Tough draw!

Simon or Serra in the 2nd (poor Frenchies ) and Ancic is in pretty good form (need to avenge Paulo ). I'm not even going to look past Ancic.

Ancic is a tough one, but I have the feeling Richard would get through it if they meet.

I don't like a single part of the draw... (but I'm in a really bad mood today)


ALLEZ RICHARD

ARGENTINA

Actually, I think the draw of Richard is ok. It could have been worse.

Sad he has to face the winner of Serra-Simon in the 2nd round though. As for Ancic he lost to him in Cincy last year but he served only 2nd balls cos he was injured and still it was close. As for Davydenko or Baghdatis in the fourth... at least it's not Federer.
so true, i dont think its that bad if he focuses and actually plays tennis hehe ah well no fed in sight unlike my other one

The draw isn't that easy, but certainly could've been worse. Let's hope Richard plays well and then I can even see him in R16 again, but first things first: BYE. Oh, right... I'd like to see Simon vs Richie. (even though I won't get to see the match)

It's true, if only Richard plays well -- there should be no problem I certainly believe he's going get pass Mario (Logically, Mario & Paulo match last week was pretty close -- since Richard is, I'd say, better than Paulo then I don't see why Richard couldn't beat Mario! )

Allez Richard ---- And Simon vs Richard

I agree its not the best draw for Richi, but it could of been alot worse. He actually fared better than other ppl. Allez Richard, lets take it one match at a time.

Safin


Acasuso ~ Nadal ~ Gasquet ~ Clement ~ Nalbandian ~ Almagro ~Tursunov ~ Gaudio ~ Mathieu ~ Grosjean ~ Roddick

Ljubicic~ Robredo ~ Gonzalez ~ Massu ~ Ancic ~ Ferrer ~ Zabaleta ~ Monaco ~ Del Potro ~ Haas ~ Ferrero ~ Monfils ~ Verdasco ~ Moya ~ Tursunov ~ Chela ~ Serra ~ Lopez ~ Djokovic ~ Tipsarevic ~ Llodra

Richie can beat any of the guys in his quarter. Of course his current form doesn't guarantee that.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

The Miami site map :

bigger map

We can expect TV coverage in Stadium Court and Grandstand of course, and maybe in court 1 & 2 ...?
