Have they lost the drawsheet, you reckon? How flipping long does it take to get the wretched thing up? (as the actress said to the bishop)

Ferrero hasn't withdrawn?

Not sure I'd expect him to beat Malisse just now even if he hasn't.

I don't like it...


Granollers - Brands in R1: It's okay, but Melzer in R2. :sad:
Nadal - Isn't too bad.
Almagro - In R3 against Dolgopolov :scared: But he have to make QF for top 10.
Berdych - Soderling :scared: :haha: :sad:
Dimitrov - Monaco: :mad:

And I miss Robredo. Bad injury. :sad:

Pico is in the worst form of his life, great chance for Grisha here.

Great Draw for Robin except for Rafa in Semis but what the hell i think he would have a better chance then in a final.. Robins form is still in doubt though to even reach SEMI!!

Prepares himself to give Raonic a lesson of Real tennis in Madrid :sport:

:haha:

Do you know when Nadal plays his first match? and Murray?

on Tuesday or Wednesday. They should play R3 match on Thursday.

Starace - Gimeno Traver :cool:
If Potito wins, which is very likely, he plays NADAL next round! :spit: :haha: :crazy: :help: :hug:

Kavčič - Kamke (a winnable match, imo)
Chela - Gasquet (should be a cracking match)

If they win, we'll have a Chela-Kavčič 2nd round. :)

All my favs are in the Rafzilla top quarter, my goodness.

First round games to watch.....

Ferrero/Malisse
Davy/Dog
Gasquet/Chela
Monaco/Dimitrov (probably over-rating Grigor's chances though)

Good draw for Murray. Almagro in the quarter-final will be tough, and then Ferrer, but he'll do well here. Montanes too, I think he can beat Melzer.

okay for Ritchie: Nadal, Ferrer and Soda are unplayable. The only "good" draw would have been Murray but it doesn't make a huge difference, 90 pts is not that much. He can make QF easily, he is playing far better than Monfils, who stands no chance to win 6 games against Nadal.

I couldn't care less about any of the top players here. What's really the focus are the non-elites.

The qualifiers have good draws across the board, only Fognini and Haase I would consider a rougher draw. Great opportunities for some of my favorites if they qualify.

Davydenko v Dolgo is a very interesting R1 match.

I hope Ruben beats Ramos, but it's too bad they have to play each other R1. Then I hope Ruben beats Bellucci/Giraldo but he probably wont.

Blaz should beat Kamke, hopefully he gives a good account of himself in the R2 match.

Hope Gaba beats Montanes in R1 but he won't.

Also GL to JCF if he does play here in his comeback event.

Yeah, the Spanish Channel "Teledeporte" will start his coverage on Monday (and therefore streams the whole week).

World Feed starts on Thursday.

Decent draw for Gasquet: Monfils is an accessible third round. If Nadal withdraw, it's a jackpot draw.

Potentially some awesome quarter finals.

Nadal vs Monfils
Soderling vs Berdych

Murray vs Almagro

I think Gasquet has more of a chance to reach QF against Nadal then Monfils whos in a bad form..

Dolgopolov vs Davydenko looks interesting for a R1 match. I want Davydenko to break out of his funk and finally get some wins, but not really at the expense of Dolgo.
