Well, after Coria and Moyá, who are definetly te two biggest contenders for the title right now, the other contendres are Costa, Kuerten and Safin, who theorically have more chances than Lleyton (or Martin Verkerk, why not).

Costa will lose soon, Gustav was lucky and Safin will burnout. They won reach the last 8:)
Other than Lleyton, David is the next one I think has the chance to go far.

Moya should be pleased, he was getting ready to pack his bags and leave with the other players once it was decided that only Coria & Federer have a chance but now he has been allowed to stay, all the others have to be out of Paris by Sunday though.

So is there any final combination that does not involve Coria? I'm not sure that he would like the idea of having things just handed to him.

Will Costa lose like he did last year, and Safin burnout like he did in Australia? Because clearly that would make either one of them totally irrelevant to the tournament.

not yet. He is the main favourite... but is still in R16, so wait... many things can happen... even Coria losing vs Escudé or Costa winning his 2nd RG! Who knows, nothing is written.

this is off topic yahirobai, but when Spain beats the US in the davis cup final this year, where will the tie be held? My guess is that they bring in some clay and play it at the same place where the TMS madrid is held

Are y'all saying Robredo is not a legit contender?

Robredo will lose to Moya. The winners of 3 of the last 4 Roland Garros titles aren't legit contenders, though ;)

Ok Rebecca, you have given me comfort. And I'm not being sarcastic.

Why not Nalbandian as a favorite? The guy's like a wall and has been playing some good tennis in the Grand Slams lately, for the most part.
