If Roger was in, he would have a tough draw in the early rounds :eek:

Geez no ROGI :sad: I hope Gasquet can qualify so i can support him instead, alezz RICHIE :)
Ya, you remind me of sb I will surely enjoy without Roger :wavey:

Gasquet is a bit struggling at the moment against Sanchez but he won the first set 7-5

Champion number 1

All the Italians got big draws. Seppi v Johansson, Starace v Moya, Di Mauro v Agassi and Volandri v El Aynaoui should all be on the main court.

I don't consider Volandri v El Aynaoui a tough draw for the Italian. Younes is in poor shape and has lost all of his matches since his comeback. He is better of playing in challenger tournaments to get his confidence back. Besides he using up pretty fast his protected ranking.

There is no need to play beyond this match: RODDICK, Andy USA (1) v RUSEDSKI, Greg GBR

The winner of this match is clearly going to win the tournament. It's the defacto final.

Volandri just lost to El Aarej of Morocco 6-3 1-6 6-1 although Italy already won this tie in the davis cup so maybe he played crap on purpose.

Anyway Volandri easily beat El Aynaoui on thursday so I hope for him to do so again.

Volandri defeated El Aynaoui 3 days ago in a davis cup match: he won 6-2 6-4 6-1 , it will be really hard for Younes :(

Ever have a moment where you enter a thread for Rome, then forget "Rome is in Italy" and you wonder why the feck anyone would give Sanguinetti a WC. I just did.

Not a lot to like about this Draw but the worst:

Kiwi vs. Tommy :banghead: :banghead:
Guille vs. Gonzo :banghead:

Horatio Caine
04-30-2005, 11:51 PM
he got all the fluky draws he could on clay last yr
saying that Guga is no where near match right :sad:

You call his Monte Carlo run last year a fluke? Massu, Sanchez and Spadea...all quite capable on the dirt, especially Massu. How about the wins over Mayer and the RG QF win over Chela? Admittedly most of those players are having a bad season this year but they were tough opposition last year. :rolleyes:

This draw is a monster for Tim. :help: I think he stands more of a chance against Guga now at any rate. However, Tim only ever beats him on a fast court...could be a very interesting match. I'd have Tim 40% chance to win, as opposed to 20% against the same man in May 2004.

Greg - :help: :help: :mad: Poor guy - he has had no luck this year at all. Roger R1 in Monte C, Roger R2 in Dubai, Joachim R1 in Sydney, Roddick R2 in Aus and now Roddick R1 in Rome, injury in Marseille scuppering a chance for the SF...poor old Greg is continuing to slide. All he needs is a little good luck... :sobbing: :sobbing: There is no way he will win. If Roddick crushed him in Aus, he will give him a bigger hiding on clay. The only good thing is that the surface is faster in Rome so that will favour Greg...and Andy...and Andy is "in-form" on the clay...if you can call a Houston title good enough at any rate. It certainly will be good enough for Greg though.

I'd laugh my arse off if Greg disposed of a 6-time clay court title winner( :haha: ) who is #1 seed for the first time in a mandatory clay event... :tape:

Nadal gets the worst possible draws. Youzhny is a very tough match... and Canas... Safin... blah!

Rightfully so because its two of the best clay courters of our generation battling it out. They should just forget the rest of the players and make this the final.

Is Rome the fastest or slowest of the 3 Masters Cup Series on Clay. Could someone rank them in their speed.

Hamburg is the slowest...MC is RG...and center court in Rome is fast depending on the athmosphere otherwise slow hehe..
