Can Olivier Rochus reach the semis?

Look at his draw. Now he has Alberto Martin. Despite a 0-4 record, I think that Olli can win this one, after thrashing Vanek 6-2 6-0 6-2.
Then could come Stepanek. He's shown good clay performances but he is not the best. I can see Olli winning that one. Then could come Ferrer or Ljubicic. Clay isn't Ljubo's fave surface, and Ferrer is beatable despite a good record on clay.
Then his run could end against Nadal...In the semis.

If it helps you root for your country, go for it. Although, I think you'll have better chances in womens (as will the USA...as much as I'd rather have blake do well than Venus).

Ferrer is gone :devil:

Oli really does have a chance.

I think Ollie is great but clearly he's not the best performer in the slams over 5 set matches.

I didn't pick him for my fantasy team because his record has not been impressive in the slams and I was glad I didn't.

Then again, I picked Stepanek and look how that ended. What a dumb section of the draw that's turned out like.
