I wonder if Stan is going to take a WC into this event again this year.

I really hope he doesn't, so a guy who actually needs the points can win the event.

It's not confirmed by him yet, but he was offered a WC and might play again/defend his title in Lugano.

I expect a Martin/Alves and Stan/Gaba SF lineup. I don't want Stan winning this event, he doesn't need it, but he probably will. I hope Chris makes the SF vs. Stan or maybe Pippo can pull off the upset.

Good luck to my favorites!

Maybe because he will play in front of home crowd.

Anyway he is the BIG favorite. The highest ranked player after Wawrinka is Starace (#60)...

Rui and Fred have fallen completely off since Estoril. Rui can barely win a match at all, and Fred can't gain consistency. I think both are emotionally and physically tired from that event and have not recovered.

Good job by Gaba to back up his RG run.

I cannot stand Andujar so much. If Pippo can't win this match, I don't know what I'll do. The player I love vs. the player I dislike the most.

06-08-2010, 02:54 PM
I do have to give him credit though, Pablo has actually shown a decent level of tennis of late. And he's playing pretty good now. Maybe he's not as much of a huge joke as I thought.

Potato played great. Played some very good dropshots and he is so quick he gets all Haase's dropshots as well, even shots who look impossible to get. Deserved win.

06-08-2010, 07:25 PM
Stan won 6-1 6-2. Played pretty much like an intense practice session. Very comfortable win for Wawa.

Judging from what I have seen the past 2 days and the overall level of the players, you have to think a battle between #1 and #2 seeds Stan and Potito is going to happen.

Millot vs. Starace

Filo V.
06-11-2010, 03:11 AM
Stan is playing this event because he's a clay guy, it's in his home country, he probably is getting a large appearance fee, and it's easy points and more or less an intense practice session vs. most of the players in the draw. Clay guys avoid grass, that's just what they do, and Stan has more reason to do in this case than simply not liking grass.

Tournament has gone exactly as expected in terms of the SF matchups. I hope for a Gaba v. Martin final, but I think Poto will beat Beto. Stan hasn't played too great this week so I can potentially see an upset there.

At least there should be two great clay court matches to watch between four really good players!

Expected, but boring final. I can see either of Poto or Stan at Umag or whatever random clay ATP 250. I didn't want either to win this event, it's not fair to Beto or Gaba who are actually playing for their rankings and careers.

Completely agree, it's not fair to those players who really need the event. Stan doesn't need this, but the event maybe needs him.
