Should be a good match. :)

I want it to be Rochus, but probably will be Martin.

Martin isn't playing sooo well (ok he won against roddick), that's why Olli will win. He's playing extremely well, probably his best tennis ever. And that's quite remarkable, I already said that several times in his career.

Haven't seen Martin play but Ollie was on fire in both of his matches, hope he can keep it up and beat Martin. This could be an excellent occasion for him to go deep this year.

A small man will win then. :)

Martin has the record but Rochus has the better form. But Rochus has never really impressed in the slams, either and he has a great chance for a R16 or even QF if he does well, and he probably knows it.

I find it tough to call though I think Rochus should come through.

Interesting match.

Both guys are roadrunners with one-handers. Both have also had some very quick matches. The previous matches have all gone to Beto, so Oli would be due. Plus, compared to when they played before, Oli is playing some of the best tennis of his life in the last year or so.

it will be a though match, but I think Olivier is a better tennis player :)

Having seen Ollie play against Faurel and Vanek there can be no doubt about it: Olivier will win !!! :D I have to agree; these opponents weren't the world's greatest players. So Martin defeated Roddick; but you have to admit that A-Rod was injured and doesn't like clay. And Kindlmann: who is that guy ? :) So I'm guessing: Ollie in 4 sets.

COME ON BELGIANS !!! :worship:

I strongly believe Rochus will win in 4.

i want Ollie to win!
met both of them last year and they were very nice
but i just adore Ollie so i hope he wins :)

I want Ollie to win this homuncular (by modern day ATP tour standards) affair.

06-02-2006, 12:38 AM
I want Ollie to win ... But maybe Beto will win

Olly Rochus is due for a Grand Slam breakthrough, proving that he's more than just an interesting ATP novelty but a world class player in his own right.

Rochus in three :cool:

it will be a though match, but I think Olivier is a better tennis player :)it will be a though match, but I think Beto is a better clay tennis player :p
Beto in 4

06-03-2006, 12:40 PM
Vamos Beto. He takes first set 7-5

As I predicted.
