Murray vs Nalbandian should be a good match. Too bad it's an R2 match.

Murray vs Nalbandian should be a good match. Too bad it's an R2 match.

A blow out will be a good match? Because all I can see is Nalbandian getting destroyed judging by what I've seen from both players lately.

I disagree, Querrey in R2 could be hard and if he's tired after winning Basel who knows what could happen, Querrey looked quite good and Roddick this week as well.

Mahut got Richie and Roger. Too damn bad, so unlucky with draws. Hope he pulls off upsets.

Ferrer has a good draw to do well here.

A-Rod and Nole have tricky draws.

Murray-Nalbandian R2 could be a great one.

Soderling should have a good chance to go deep here if he plays well.

Hopefully Marco qualifies and gets Stepanek, De Bakker or Stakhovsky.

Yeah, Arno has a good shot to do well here. He destroyed Lopez last year in this same event. I know you don't like him but he's defending tons of points so a good run here is needed.

Fed will either pull out or tank 1st or 2nd match (or just be tired) , you can be 100% sure of this

its easy title for Nole or Muzza

Freaking Serra and Clement got WC? :spit:
PHM would do more damage than weak indoor player like Serra for sure.

Gulbis - Chela (Ernie should clinch it, hope he doesn't)

Llodra - Starace (I'm afrid Potito has no chance here)

Where is Andreas? :confused: Seppi

Draw hasn't been kind to Mahut. Though to be honest I think there is a fair chance the top 4 seeds will make it to the semis.

Should be a good one. Draw looks good for everyone. However, I do have to partly agree that going by the seedings that the top 4 players drew in their quarters, Djokovic got the seemingly easiest draw. I mean he drew the lowest seeded player Isner and drew BOTH Davydenko/Berdych who are clearly in terrible form right now. However, Querrey/Isner/Kohlschreiber are all unpredictable and could pose to be a problem.

I hope there will be a great champion at Paris like in 2009. Roddick could go in semis, Federer in semis too but I don't think he will care to play Murray before WTF so he will probably tank before. I will go with Murray, beats the clown in quarters, then Ferrer and Soderling in final.

PHM would do more damage than weak indoor player like Serra for sure.

PHM initially got a WC, but has since pulled out due to injury. His WC went to Mahut.

And according to this post (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=10491082&postcount=30), it sounds like they just got the Top 3 French players w/o DE.

Djokovic half of the draw is truly a joke. Berdych and Soderling will probably choke before either one can even come close to reaching him. Isner sucks, Davydenko will probably retire. Roddick can make things interesting, but he lacks consistency, so I think he'll either lose to Tipsarevic or some afterward. With that said, Djokovic should reach the final.

On Federer's half, some powerful opponents. Gasquet looks to be tricky, he has potential to upset Federer, but I think Federer will defeat him, even if Gasquet got the annoying French crowd behind him. Murray will destroy Nalbandian if they happen to face each other. Monfils will come across Federer, and Federer will defeat him in 3.

Final: Federer vs Djokovic. Federer in 3 sets to end this year with at least a 2nd masters after blowing up the last one.

Federer will be too tired for that to happen, he never arrives to Paris fresh due to making at least a final in Basel.

I think it will be a Murray vs. Djokovic final

Roger has atough draw. Gasquet 1st round should be entertaining, great tennis. Inform Ferrer grinding like a bitch,Almagro and then ofcourse Murray. Fuck Novaks draw is piss easy,all the serbs always get easy draws. Novak prob wont take advantage of it though as he would be smarting from the defeat Rog hands out to him in the Basel Final.

Nalby vs Murray should be a cracker cant ait for that one.

Im thinking Fed will take his Paris masters title :D

Whoa whoa whoa, lemme get this straight: Gasquet and Monfils are tougher potential opponents than Soderling, Roddick, Isner, etc.? :haha: :lol:

Did you see what Soderling did to Monfils yesterday? Or what Troicki did to Gasquet? This is almost as clownish as saying that Seppi is a tough match for Federer. This wouldn't happen to be a Fed's Mate double account, would it? :wavey:

Even if it isn't a double account, Federer's Maid said pretty much the same thing just above. You know how it works by now; the other guy always has an easy draw and their hero is always heroic even against mid-level players :)

You are so true, Djokovic has clearly the easiest draw and he could very well defend his title. The most important thing to think about is what the top 4 really want from Paris.
Nadal retired for strange "medical reasons", he doesn't care about MS Paris (very understandable to me) and he wants to win his first WTF. Djokovic can not return to n°2, even if he wins the title, so his motivation is purely grinding and getting closer to Roger. If he can always win easy until the final, he may be the favorite. Murray tanked in Valencia; he could take n°3 spot, but he would have to take out Federer in semis and hope that Djoko tanks before. very unlikely. Federer does not like Paris, tanked or retired at last 3 events, and i suspect he will try to make a big hit in London instead, much more points for him to gain. But, with Nadal's forfeit, he can not retire as well. So he will have to play, a bit.

But i don't see him losing against Ritchie, and sorry to contradict you on that point, but Gasquet will not get the french crowd with him. French fans only care about Tsonga, the National Hero, and Simon/Monfils to a minor extent. French fans and french sport medias hate Gasquet with a passion and almost never support him. He is probably the most hated tennisman in France and you will see it if he plays against Federer. Federer will not tank against a player in such a bad form, he would have to play the worst match of his season; he will probably wait a round later, vs Stepanek.
