With more practice on clay, I'm sure he'll fare much better. Ajde Nole!

Scotso

I hope so. I hope the poor play this week was just a lack of clay court matches.

Good luck in Estoril, Nole :D

Don't worry, Novak told me before Monte Carlo he was very tired!

He will be 100% ready for the title in Estoril, you'll see!

Entry list hasn't been updated, but here is the original one:

Entry deadline: March 19, 2007
Seeding: April 23, 2007

1 Davydenko, Nikolay RUS 4
2 Gonzalez, Fernando CHI 5
3 Djokovic, Novak SRB 10
4 Murray, Andy GBR 12
5 Gasquet, Richard FRA 16
6 Tursunov, Dmitry RUS 22
7 Andreev, Igor RUS @27
8 Calleri, Agustin ARG 30
9 Monfils, Gael FRA 46
10 Mirnyi, Max BLR 53
11 Monaco, Juan ARG 54
12 Ramirez Hidalgo, Ruben ESP 58
13 Mathieu, Paul-Henri FRA 61
14 Del Potro, Juan Martin ARG 63
15 Serra, Florent FRA 64
16 Garcia-Lopez, Guillermo ESP 66
17 Russell, Michael USA 67
18 Korolev, Evgeny RUS 68
19 Querrey, Sam USA 69
20 Horna, Luis PER 70
21 Gabashvili, Teimuraz RUS 71
22 Hernych, Jan CZE 72
23 Roitman, Sergio ARG 73

How many guys could even give Novak a hard time on clay. I count only 3: Davydenko, Gonzalez, and Mathieu. Maybe Calleri or Andreev???

Go for the title, Novak!

Scotso
04-25-2007, 08:34 PM
Gasquet if he hits a hot streak (which is unlikely)

Murray is decent on clay but I don't think the result would be any different than on hardcourt.

Monaco, Del Potro, and Garcia-Lopez are great claycourters, but I don't think they have the power to deal with Nole.

Robredo Joins Stellar Field
ATP World No. 5 Tommy Robredo (pictured) has replaced Scotland’s Andy Murray, who withdrew with a back injury, in the field for the Estoril Open.

Spaniard Robredo was beaten in the 2005 final by Gaston Gaudio and also reached the 2003 semifinals, losing to Agustin Calleri.

Former champion and last year's beaten finalist Nikolay Davydenko, Fernando Gonzalez and Novak Djokovic also compete.

------
so,nole will be No.3 seed:o

Scotso
04-27-2007, 05:49 PM
#2 or #3 doesn't really matter. Neither Tommy nor Nikolay are that intimidating.

uglyamerican
04-28-2007, 12:26 PM
Andreev in 1st round.

Novak is in Robredo's half. Most of the other good clay-courters are not in Novak's half.

Robredo may have to play Calleri again in the QF.

According to the picture on the official site it seems the draw has been made by Kirilenko. She didn't pick the best guy for her boyfriend. :tape:
It's a pity they've to meet in 1st round, I like them both. :awww: Igor is a dangerous player on clay. :unsure:

Scotso

Kirilenko and Andreev are dating? :o hot couple :drool:

Yes, Andreev is a very tough first round, but the rest of his draw is pretty sweet... so hopefully he can fight past the first round and then go deep.

Andreev is probably the most dangerous player in the draw :p

That was a LONG time ago. Both Nadal and Andreev are different players now (Andreev worse, Nadal much better).

It's just been crazy. They have me working some days until midnight, and then coming in the next morning at 7am. With an hour to and from work, that means I have from 1am-6am to sleep and shower, eat, etc. It's not enough.

I am moving to the shelving shifts, too, but I noticed that on the week of May 6th they have me down for 5 days that week, and only three are shelving shifts (when I wanted a maximum of 4 days a week and mostly shelving shifts). It just seems they aren't really thinking about my requests or needs when making the schedules lately, and I need to speak up about it.

I started watching since 4-3 Andreev in the second set, and personally I think Andreev is better at the moment.

It's 3-3 third set Djokovic is serving now. I think that Novak can still win, but his game isn't shinning that's for sure!

It kind of windy too, which suits Andreev big forehand game.

Andreev is playing risky and his forehand is working well, while Novak is playing too defensively in my opinion. Novak's forehands are too short and his not "stretching" Andreev enough.

Andreev is playing risky and his forehand is working well, while Novak is playing too defensively in my opinion. Novak's forehands are too short and his not "stretching" Andreev enough.

Thanks for the news.

Nole is definitely at his best when he's being aggressive. That was his problem against Ferrer. He's just not going for it. He needs to go back to that. :mad:
