I'm not sure either, but more so because he's quite erratic and I have no idea what expect from match to match than because Boredo will outplay him from the baseline. Can always mix it up after all.

I'd probably give Robredo a very slight edge in this one, alhough he has struggled with this type of match-up many times before and his form is far from convincing.

The major advantage for him, though, is that if he can be competitive from the outset he could win by physical means. Stakhovsky's fitness is often questionable, and if the forecast remains decent then he probably won't enjoy the prospect of playing maybe 4-5 sets out there. It also helps that the courts aren't the fastest.

Yee, agree. However, this time Stakho devoted all last December to fitness (two weeks in the mountains and two weeks in Thailand, last case is together with Youzhny) and now looks more fresh and energetic than usually. So, we will see

clearly the big match of 3rd round, all eyes are turned on this. The winner has made a huge step toward the title.

^LOL - the only all unseeded clash in the third round. Stakhovsky the slight favourite in this match according to bookies.
