Soderking is on another level to every other player here. He will get his 3rd title of the year here.

Very similar entry list to Rotterdam. Soderking to win here too.

very good entry list for a 250

Marchenko to take it home

(1) Soderling - By far the better player in this field.
Mahut - Amazing player, not good enough though.
Kamke - Okay player, nowhere near good enough.
Benneteau - LOL
(8) Llodra - Entertaining, but has no chance none-the-less.
(4) Melzer - Should be a semi-finalist here, but will not stop SoderGod.
Haase - Lol, no chance.
Seppi - Same as above.
Dimitrov - Probably has the best chance out of all the unseeded players. This future juggernaut will do well here, but won't win.
Tursunov - No way.
Golubev - HAHA
(5) Ljubicic - Doesn't have a chance.
(6) Tsonga - Good chance, but will lose like in Rotterdam
Paire - Future big gun. Won't win here though.
Marchenko & Stakhovsky - Stak has the better chance of the two, but won't get far. Marchenko will lose to Stak.
Davydenko & Simon - Simon wll lose this match. Davydenko will lose to Youzhny.
(3) Youzhny - Semi-finalist.
(7) Gulbis - Considering how bad he is, I wouldn't be surprised if he lost in the 1st round vs. Petzschner, who also doesn't have a chance to win the title.
Cilic & Q - Cilic back where he belongs - unseeded and out of the top 20. Hopefully, he will continue losing.
Clement & Q - No chance.
(2) Berdych - Finalist, but will lose to the far superior Soderking.

This is Soderking's title.

OMG, would be great 2 title in 2 week. :)

02-13-2011, 10:14 PM
If Berdych has recovered I'll say him, have a feeling Soderling will be a little tired.

02-13-2011, 10:22 PM
And taking into account the fact that he won this week he might be tired, especially mentally. And his match vs Llodra will probably cause him to loose, most probably in straight sets considering how much he struggles against him.

02-13-2011, 10:23 PM
Benneteau - LOL


02-13-2011, 10:29 PM
i hope soderling wins, will he get all points from this tournament? i tho fear he will be tired and we all saw in rotterdam final he had a bandage on his knee. i dont expect much tbh but i hope he wins :)

No. His best two 250 tournaments are Brisbane W and Bastad F. If he will win he get 100 points.

About the same line-up that entered Rotterdam past week.

As I don't expect Soderling to take this event all too seriously after winning Rotterdam, I'd like to see Berdych winning this, if he's indeed recovered from that flu he caught in Rotterdam of course.

My best wishes to Youzhny and Llodra, too, for their excellent performances in Rotterdam. If this court plays anywhere near to that one, they might well have a good chance as well.

02-14-2011, 12:28 AM
I'll go with Berdych or Youzhny. :)

was thinking the same

very good entry list for a 250


02-14-2011, 01:51 AM
Grigor for me. I think he will make a BIG impact.

02-14-2011, 06:26 AM
I expect Robin to lose to Llodra in 1/4, no need to waste much energy here. If every other player folds and Robin makes the final OK fine...

I voted for Tsonga, he really found his groove and serve in Rotterdam.

02-14-2011, 07:19 AM
Fingers crossed for misha.

02-14-2011, 11:03 AM
Pretty high quality draw. :) I don't think Soderling will win this. It might even be good for him if he lost early.

I would love for Llodra or Berdych to take it. :tennis:

02-14-2011, 11:11 AM
Berdych, I hope

02-14-2011, 11:31 AM

just kidding :lol: ......Mika or Misha
