Not bad draw for Fred! At least in 1st round. 2nd round almost impossible to win, but got nothing to lose...

I was thinking of you when I saw the draw, because I knew you would be happy with it. It is a must win for Fred.

Man, Mahut got the short end of the stick here. Simon R1, Nalbandian likely R2, Tsonga QF, Isner/Monfils SF. Too bad, I was hoping he could do damage here. Maybe he can pull off some upsets.

this tourny will be Gasquet's or it will be completely useless. I Have Spoken.

I'm amused that it's the tournament that's useless (and not Gasquet himself) if he doesn't win. :p

Heh, I was sort of hoping for an Isner-Mahut rematch, but that seems unlikely.

Good draw for Llodra. Hope he.makes the most of it.

Maybe, but now how is Llodra?

Recently his shape was worst, and so health .. now??


THANKS :)

The upper side of the draw is quite open. I think Llodra has good chances to reach SF. Ljubicic, Gasquet and Nieminen have similar chances to be the other semifinalist.

On the bottom half of the draw Monfils has big chances to be the 3rd semifinalist if he can keep the level he has shown the last months. Isner can be a threat to Gael aspirations if he can serve well.
The last quarter of the draw is probably the toughest one with some tight matches like the ones of Nalbandian with Granollers, Simon with Mahut and the winner of those matches with Tsonga.

Nice draw for a 250.

Good luck for David :yeah:

Silver.

:D The french guy is playing at home, but realy Gil couldn't ask for a easier draw in an ATP tournament, so i'm happy, but not going to be easy though. And Gil not a good Hardcourt player, but he need this win badly, because after Montpellier he will play only in Valencia (qualies) till the end of the season. He needs to be in AO MD, IMO.

Man, Mahut got the short end of the stick here. Simon R1, Nalbandian likely R2, Tsonga QF, Isner/Monfils SF. Too bad, I was hoping he could do damage here. Maybe he can pull off some upsets.

I know now it's easy to talk, but now we know that Nico will lose 1st round here. He's too tired from Orleans. Period. Hope i'm wrong, though. I like Nico.

BTW, i have to say. I HATE this 28 draw. Very bad for tennis. I mean, this top players are already to good to be in 250 tournaments, and their job gets even easier now that they don't even have to play 1st round...:sad:

Ivan has some chance to win this tournament again.Probably against Gasquet in QF,if he goes through then may face Llodra.Still remember Ivan was the only one non-French player of all players in QF and won the title last year. :lol::yeah:

Nicolas got the worst draw. :( It's very hard to see Isner-Mahut this time.If he wins 1 or 2 matches here I think he achieves something already. :) BTW he and Arnauld will face Monfils and Ouanna.He was given a WC but guess he really doesn't have any luck here.

I don't think thats its gonna be an easy match for gasquet. with reister you never know...on day bad and the other day defeating guys like feliciona lopez und victor hanescu easily. could be a though match...we will see.

What about Nalbandian?

After Davis Cup he has not played in Asia, it seems that his main target is Paris but might be competitive in Montpellier too ?

what about match Gasquet - Reister? The match should start at 7 pm on center court...maybe some retirement?

Gasquet was not great yesterday. started really low, was very close to an upset, i think he will play better thursday. Tonight, Nalbandian enters the battle, with Llodra and Isner. still lot of frenchmen in Montpellier, I hope it doesn't end like last year :D
