I think either CORIA or NADAL will LOSE as they will face each other again in 3rd Round.

They don't wanna face each other again after FINAL.

NADAL may be much more tired.Nadal played even doubles yesterday.

No bet means that you're unsure about the match. I was thinking more about fixed match or something. :p If you were so sure about the beast, then you would have taken him, but you didn't ;)

Mate I am sooooooo tempted but I'm not sure I can trust him. Nico is making a slow comeback but yeah he has lost to some nobodies on countless occasions. His qualifying performance was not anything to write home about either, but you have to be impressed with his dismissal of Zibby longstockings. However, Kim is having his best year on tour and gave Garcia a whipping which is impressive for someone who has played and lost 90% of his 6 clay matches of his life! Kim is dangerous...I'm not sure I'm going to play it, but if i did, i would be on Lapentti. ;)

:) A little off-topic but what do you guys say about betting on the dogs tomorrow and raking it in? :)

Wawrinka def Stepanek
Nadal def Calleri (okay - no dog!)
Mirnyi def Davydenko
Ferrero def Gaudio

Stan could beat a knackered Step. Mirnyi - he has been awesome so far and Kolya is beatable. However, I guess he will fall soon and we will all have backed him! Ferrero is locked 5/5 head to head with El Gato but he won their last meeting at DC in 2003 6/4 6/0 6/0!! :eek: :eek: In fact he has won his last 4 meetings on clay with Gaston and only lost to him once in that time in Cincinnati, and that was a close match. Gaston has only beaten J-C once on clay at ATP level. Okay they have both gone different ways since then but J-C is finding some good form and consistency and Gaudio has done nothing special on clay since his double-title-whammy in February.

Any thoughts?
