I think it will only be Coria.

Gaudio's game against Andreev will be tricky

And I feel Henman is having a purple patch and may beat Chela

I think 2 or 3
Juan Ignacio & Gaston will probably win their matches, but I'm not sure about Guillermo, i actually hope Carlos will beat him
but we'll see:)

and what about David Nalbandian??
he seems to have a good shape, so he can beat Kuerten for sure

Hopefully none! :) Certainly don't want Chela or Coria there. I'd prefer Gaudio to get through over Hewitt but who would want Nalbandian to triumph over Kuerten?!!

What makes you so sure that Chela will DEFINETLY beat Henman? The court favours Henman more, the crowd are going to be more on Henman's side and if Henman is sufficiently rested then he has the game to break Chela into little pieces. After all he has won their most recent encounter on clay and improved a lot since then and he bitch-slapped him earlier in the year too.

Well Gaudio'll probably beat Lleyton... he beated him two weeks ago on clay and right now Gaudio's playing an amazing tennis, just having a bit of trouble winning the crusial points but still, pretty good tennis should be enough to beat Lleyton on clay. Still, Potato boy's a fighter so he might win a set or maybe 2, who knows. But i say Gaudio in 4 or 5.

Then Nalbandian against Guga... well that's gonna be a tough match, for sure. But you know, even tho Guga's playing amazingly well Nalbandian has more chances if he's 100% (which, of course, federer wasn't when he was beated by guga). Guga's a great player and he feels very comfortable in RG. The crowd will probably be supporting him so David'll also have to deal with that. I can't predict who wins here... it's a 50% 50% situation.

Then Chela... well Henman shouldn't be a problem for him. He's not a claycourt speciallist when Chela is. I say Chela in 3.

And THE match: Coria vs Moya. Coria will win. He wont give Moya so many oportunities as Tommy did (in the tiebreak for example, or the 3rd set). Besides, Coria won their last 3 matches on clay in straight sets (or very easily at least). Guille's with a better mentally and physically probably.. although this last factor wont be an issue in the match, they're both in a very good shape now. Umm there's not much to say.. i simply have a feeling :) Coria in 3.


So to answer your question... at least, 3.

I wouldn't be saying it if i didn't mean it! :) Just face it Carito, you're afraid that Henman is going to spoil the day! I'll be laughing if he does! :haha:

Hey, I don't like Chela AT ALL :lol: but i don't like the farmer either so I just go to my countryman :P

But umm... everyone knows Chela's best surface's clay and Henman's not that good on it... although he's been doing a good job these last days. No one really thought he was gettin that far :rolleyes:

Coria beats Moya
Hewitt beats Gaudio
Chela beats Henman
Kuerten beats Nalbandian

So, 2.

i do jez, i like guga but i dont find his game as enjoyable as davids! i hope david will win! actually i hope 3 argentines get through, im starting to want tim henman to get through to the semis, would be nice to see some variety get through

I think Chela will definitely win, Nalbandian has a good chance but I dont think he'll win, Gaudio will win if he doesnt choke, and i am hoping he has learnt from his last two meetings with Hewitt. And Coria is favourite against Moya.
So I think 3 will be there.

I choose 2.
Coria is already there :worship:
Nalbandian vs Guga........ I really like Guga :worship: .... and I also like Nalbandian...., because I like what the argentinians are doing with tennis rigth now....and i dont know who would win... I would be happy for either of them
Gaudio vs Hewitt...im doubting on it...I really hope Gaudio make it, if he is with a good mind at that moment (you never know with gaudio :scratch: ) he can beat leyton, but if he is not.... i dont know...
So i tihnk one of the argentines probably wins... i dont know who.. :confused:
