lol at all the americans players playing here, good chance for a good claycourter coming from qualy to win some matches or players like cuevas to win some points...

Think if the entry lists stays as it is, Monaco should win this one, but entry list bound to change if players want more practice before Roland Garros.

dutch newspaper claims a wildcard to verkerk, but then he won't be able to compete in the RG qualies

El Ayianoui coming here and not Casablanca?

what's the matter?

This week he is playing a challenger in Bordeaux instead of Marrakech. Maybe he has some argument with some maroccan officials :shrug:

Truc

2nd WC goes to Eitzinger.
Ferrero (who was the favourite for the WC) is injured, so the last WC should go to either Simon, El Aynaoui or Verkerk. Decision on Friday.

05-16-2008, 09:17 PM
Ljubo and Mario as seeded players have to get to at least the quarterfinal, only a few nonseeded players could trouble them, and from the seeded players only Davydenko, Monaco and Seppi are dangerous
Good luck :yeah:

05-16-2008, 09:31 PM
dutch newspaper claims a wildcard to verkerk, but then he won't be able to compete in the RG qualies

But if he wins in Pörstschach... And, do you think he would come to the quarters? I don't think so.
I hope there will be a Verkerk - Haase match!

scarecrows
05-16-2008, 09:57 PM
I'd think Seppi will pull out of this

Yves.
05-16-2008, 10:07 PM
His form in Hamburg is outstanding, so it's definitely possible.
