Winner goes through to face Nadal, probably.

So, who wins?
Hard one to predict....
I think Albert will win in 3, he's a much better player and is more steady and has the mental strength edge. Not to mention he is better off the ground than Ivo.
Ivo will be hard to break though.

Discuss...

Ivo in 2, he's been unreal off the ground so far.

Hoping Montanes can take a set though.

If Ivo repeats his level of play of yesterday it will be Ivo's in straights.

Oh McCabby.

Montanes is one of the worst players to have ever appeared on tour. :lol: Karlovic is Edberg compared to fat Albert.

:spit:
How can you even say that? :lol:
Montanes is a great, mentally tough, consistent player. He's a nice guy too, nothing bad about him and he's a good professional player.
Not Albert's fault he doesn't have a massive serve to help him through every match he plays. He has to work extremely hard to win matches, and he does...

Montanes >>>>>>> Karlovic.

Doctor's really lucky with the draw here, 3 defensive players in a row, should march on

Montanes is one of the worst returner on tour, Canas returns serves better with one of his syringe.

i guess it will be up to rafa again to save tennis from another serve-bot.

It'll be more interesting for Rafa to play against Albert, so Montanes in 3.

Rafa will beat any of them, anyway

at least he would be training more aspects of his game, against karlovic he would only be training his return.

His return which isn't very good...

Yes, because serve and volleys are not aspects of the game. In fact, the latter is the part so many players today excel at, everyone's bored of it and are dying to see some boring baseline grinding. Did I mention what a humongous clown you are?

Hard to predict, yeah. I just hope that Montanes will win, but if Ivo will serve so well as his last two match, Karlo will win.

Match will be a mugathon. An all serve elderly clown vs clay courter on HC. Result doesn't really matter, none of those 2 journeymen are getting past Nadal.
