I have Tipsarevic over Nieminen and Melzer over Robredo in St. Petersburg. Poor Gasquet has to face Safin in his home country in the first round. I have Safin and Grosjean in the Lyon final but Grosjean often disappoints. Basel - what else, Nalbandian and Federer.
What has happened to Tursunov? Too much blogging?
Gaudio is ranked number 2 in Lyon. I think the ATP site should carry surface-adjusted rankings - add up the ATP points for each surface then rank them. If they seeded by these, Gaudio would be much lower.
The draws and my picks are here
