Do you think Paradorn will defeat Kuerten? I will cheer Paradorn to win and will meet Agassi in Round 4.

Anything can happen there. They're both good. This one's a toss-up for me.

Paradorn vs Kuerten is a dream matchup!!
.....As soon as I saw the Draw I prayed for this 3rd Rd Clash; they are two of my favourites apart from Llegs& Scud.
It's a cliche but seriously there are no losers in this match since both Paradorn & Kuerten have made there best ever showing at AO[3rd a 1st]& whoever wins will out-doo there previous best by another round. Unfortunately the winner of this plays Agassi in RD~4; which you would expect A-Train to run away with considering he hasn't lost in Melbourne since 1999!
For what it's worth I predict Paradorn to win in 5-sets*#* But i hope Guga wins...no no I hope Srichaphan wins... no no I hope one of them can beat Agassi>>> actually I want to see either Ball or Guga in AO Final!

A toss up really but, I give the edge to Paradorn because he's friggin cool, he bows to the cround, man this guy rocks!! Look at his hair it's like brown with red stuff in it. Go Schri...

Actually Schri has a great hard court game. I don't know how great on this softer surface but, it favors Schri. Even though, I think old spider fingers(Guga) is a better player. I just really havn't seen anything from him that makes me thing he can stop Paradorn. Again, it's a toss up...thou

I really hope Guga wins today... Of course he's my favorite player and I always want him to win, but that could be a real breakthrough for him if he wins tonight!! I know Guga can do it, he's confident and he knows he can win...

GOOOO GUGAAA!!! Keep up the great play! GO GUGZ!

Yeah ha.. i couldn't pick a favourite for this match because they're both fantastic blokes but now I'm very happy to see that Thai Ball going win in straight sets (up a break in 3rd set already)...__>>Ofcourse feel a bit sorry for Brazilian Guga but hey he's already got 3~SLAMS so it's time to let the Tom YUM Paradorn get some glory!!
Hope he can become 1st legitimate Asian to win a slam(can't count Chang bc US born)..

Not to take anything away from Paradorn, he's one of my favs, but he had only played a total of 4 easy sets in his first two matches while Guga played 9 fairly grueling ones. Perhaps Paradorn would've still have won the match but I think it would've been much closer had Guga also had an easy first round and a second-round default. Just my opinion!!!

Regardless, best of luck in the fourth to Paradorn!!

Guga's hip injury was the worst thing to happen to the ATP tour. ITs a real shame, still I think Guga will improve his ranking this year. Paradorn surprised me today, but sadly this isn't the same Guga anymore. :sad:
