Draw looks pretty good to me. The third quarter seems loaded, though it kind of looks the same as Rome with Robredo, Davydenko, Hewitt, Murray and Canas. Except now it has Chela, Almagro and Calleri in it too. Far too hard to predict who will come out of there.

I hope we get to see Djokovic-Youzhny and Gonzalez-Gasquet.

possible safin vs federer...sounds like a nightmare for safin.
Canas vs Chela should be tight.

verkerk vs almagro, martin will probably lose again :(

Federer v Ferrero or Safin, in the last 16. Djokovic has a very good chance of making the SF.

As for the other half, lot will depend on whether Nadal chooses to play. Canas could replace him as the 17th seed.

Would that mean canas goes to Nadal's spot in the draw

if nadal pulls out wont a lucky loser come in as the second seed?

I think it depends on when he withdraws. If first round matches have already been played then a LL will come in instead.

A LL will get his spot if he withdraws anytime after the qualifying has started. The only time a 17th seeds will be made is if he withdraws before qualifying.

I don't think so. The draw wasn't even released until after qualifying started.

Despite Federers none-too-impressive form of late - this definitely looks like a Federer - Nadal final. Nadal is obviously a shoe-in and Federer ought to get there with solid play.

Verkerk is unfortunately toast again, Almagro will crush him...

But Canas-Chela is just horrible and not fair to meet in 1st round :mad: :mad: :mad: :confused:

Djokovic has chance for another SF (with Fed I hope), Youzhny and :retard:-Berdych on the way shouldnt be a problem.

Regarding the LL talk: I think the cutoff is---when the OOP is published for the first day of main draw play. Basically, the night before the main draw play starts.

Soderling and Ginepri, this is the battle of the grand chess masters that will make Karpov and Kasparov look like under 5s level. These two are the epitome of claycourt tennis acumen and the Germans won’t have seen such skill on a grand level.

Too bad about the Ferrerro-Federer match up. But Ferr-erro against THIS Fed-error has a good chance.

As far as the draw is concerned, I am thrilled to see the possibilities of another Davydenko, slow barbeque by Rafa. Russian chicken are cold and show resistence to the fleecing and grilling process. I hope this time it will be somewhat easier, Rafzilla very very hungry after conquering Rome, no?

looks like nadal could meet gonzol in quarters
federer has relativel managable draw to the quarters, safin woudnt survive to face him, JCF nor Ferrer can trouble him much for an etire match
Murray not a genuine title challenger on clay, davydenko should play robredo in quarters
Djokovic has both of youzhny & berdych to gwt past to reach quarters
