Thomas actually has a pretty decent chance, if he's in shape, to win at least his R1 match over Niland. Maybe even his R2 v. Zemlja/Bohli, who are not clay court players.

Oscar should win at least a match but in the condition he is in, any win is a good one at this point.

Pablo v. Gaston is TOUGH for a R1 match. Winner should have a decent change to go deep in the tournament.

I like Marcos' draw as well, I think he'll make the SF.

Good luck to all my favorites!

No, not really, but if he was ever going to do something on this comeback, which I don't expect quite honestly, the draw he has is about as good as it will get for him. Niland on clay is like a dream match.

Fede solid :yeah:

Filo V.
07-02-2010, 05:20 PM
Patience v. Daniel, Kukushkin v. Bohli are the two SF matches.

I really love Marcos but I'm disappointed Fede couldn't pull out the victory there. I'm really surprised Kuku beat Darcis. A tournament win would have done wonders for Fede, I'm a little sad about that. Hopefully the winner of Oli and Marcos wins the title.

spanish_army
07-02-2010, 06:37 PM
Kukushkin being focused is really dangerous. He had already won to Darcis in March... that match was much more tough than today one. Tomorrow he should beat Bohli, a non clay-courter. For me is the candidate to take the title in Brawnscheig, a tournament offering a good prize.

Filo V.
07-02-2010, 06:42 PM
If Kuku wins this event, he'll be in the top 100 for the first time in his career.

It's pretty simple with him, when he puts the ball in the court, he's very dangerous. He can smother you with his attacking shots. Clay gives him time to set up and smack the ball. He definitely should beat Bohli, but I think both Olivier and Marcos would beat him if they played.

Yes, I'm not absoutely sure but I think he trained on clay in Spain same as Safin did a lot of years ago.

About the final, against Marcos would be difficult.But if plays against Patience, Kukushkin is favourite. The french has decreased his level much last two seasons, I'm surprised he's reached semifinals.

Filo V.
07-03-2010, 02:24 PM
I don't get Marcos, though. He does so well in challengers, but he just can't put it together in ATP events.

fran70
07-03-2010, 04:27 PM
Strange way things went forward here. I expected other players to do it better like Zverev, Andreas Beck, Zemlja, Darcis, Delbo, Kunitsyn or Beto Martin. Just a shame that Delbo couldn`t get advantage of an accesible 1/4 match. He needs to spend some more time in this challenger level to expect something else of him.

Just a shame the way that Thomas was passed away by Niland. :sad:
I hope that Marcos Daniel can win the title tomorrow :yeah:

Very important victory for Kuku . He obtained some good victories like the ones over Trujillo Soler, Darcis and Daniel. Inspite of the fact there were better players to win here he took advantage of earlier defeats that turn things easier for him. Well done:yeah:
