Marat's quarter doesn't look bad at all IF he has the right attitude.

Ivo Karlovic...a big server....7/6 6/7 7/6 6/7 7/6 :scared: :scared:

Marat's quarter is very tough! :ras:

Hewitt's quarter is very interesting... Ferrero/coria/Nalby/Hewitt

Andy's quarter is the easiest one. :o

i think marats quarter is quite ok, although some have an much easier one (Roddick).
Some though players, anyway.

it all relys on Marat's shape. and I am not a optimisit on Marat. I will look forward to his champion and prepare for the worst result at the same time. :)

how is it actually determined where the qualifiers get placed? do they drawn again? probably. I hope he gets Christophe Rochus, that's probably the only way I get to see it. :)

or a German perhaps. Andrea or anyone else, isn't ARD showing it? My tvguide says no, but I goddamn hope they do, 'cause otherwise my coverage is gonna suck big time.

hey lilly, I looked in the programm and unfortunaly ARD/ZDF won`t show it. Strange. :(
The last years they always had coverage.

Hanneke what about Ned2?

nope, Ilhame. last year all they did was a half an hour summary a day. VRT will only show Belgians, the final and perhaps the semis. :sad: Eurosport is available in some regions in Belgium, but not in mine. Oh well, at least I'll have a decent sleep.

So, Marat's playing Novak Djokovic of Serbia on Monday. He's 17, 188 in the rankings, 2-3 in this career wins/losses. Really, really a rookie. Anyone has any clue what this guy's play is like?

someone told me that he has a good clay record, has less UE, and no strong serve. dunno if it could help... :confused:

Thanks, june! :kiss: So, a clay specialist, eh? Not a big server, eh? Well there's really no excuse for not beating up on the poor kid. Then again, there wasn't any excuse for being bagelled by Sanguinetti... uh-oh. *twitch*
