So, who wins this? Interesting match, as any player could win. I hoenstly don't think it'll be as easy for Malisse as it looks (Montanes isn't exactly a hardcourt God) and he could lose if Albert is in good form.

I think Albert will win this in 5.

I think Montanes will face Simon next.

Montañes in 5 sets.

Malisse fairly easily IMO.

Malisse has set the encounter with roger as his goal, I hope he will make it. He seems to be in a very good form, X in four.

Justice will prevail and xavier will win.

Malisse in 5

Justice will prevail and xavier will win.
How will justice prevail if Malisse wins :scratch:

Better hardcourter winning is justice.

Fair enough.

I want a Malisse/Federer match, Montanes will just get wacked by Federer, he's had his chance in the past.

I'm going with Might Malisse in 4 close sets, just to see him lose to Federer in 4 :)

Montanes in 5? I really don't know. It can go either way.

I don't know if a 5 set match against Brown is encouraging, but Malisse should be a step up. I think Malisse in 4, but I could also see him blowing a 2 set lead with Montanes winning in 5

This has 5 sets written all over it. Leaning towards Xavier.
