hmm..interesting draw indeed. :)

Real tough one for Guga :(, Arazi and Stepanek won't be easy just to get to Lleyton.

Andre's draw is tricky, don't like the fact he has to play Escude in round 3. Roger's draw is a very good one, would be really disappointed if he doesn't make the quarters (fitness permitting)

No doubts about it, the Moya-Srichaphan section of the draw is nasty :eek:

Marat in top half :) good :)
now i hope he's fit enough ........ he could do with those blondes now to massage him *cough* *cough* ;)

Carlos ....... big Dick in 1st then a Fish in rd2
this time Carlos..... focus and don't be Careless pfffffffff :mad:

Guga vs Hicham :mad: :(

Escuse me while I continue to cream myself over the draw as I have been for the past half hour :D

Nacho - a potential Moya Ferrero match is AWESOME! They play the best matches, despite the lopsided head to head.

That said, I dont' think it will surface as I doubt that BOTH will make it there (but I can hope!)

Nacho
01-10-2003, 12:23 AM
lol Becca I know, in fact I wish they really got to face in that QF match... (robredo is in this quarter too, not that I expect him to do anything though...)

Well, GOOD LUCK JUANQUI!!!! KICK SOME ASS AND STORM INTO THE QF!!!

Federer faces Saretta in round one.

Dont underestimate the brazilian. He is talented. :)
And then he has red hot Koubek in his section...

So, its not THAT easy...

I see Guga beat Arazi and get to the 3rd round.. against Hewitt, it would be a great match I think!! Guga can give him a lot of trouble, and we don't know what can happen next.. the world no1 Hewitt upset??? lol we'll see

Alex Vs Feli in the first round :mad: :mad: :mad:

Jorge

the most interesting matches to follow on the first round IMO are:
Guga vs Arazi
Corretja vs Feliciano López
Ferrero vs Squillari

Hicham in a good day can beat anyone, is dangerous.
Feliciano López is a great player and in this surface might be a hard rival for Alex.
Squillari just 2 years ago was number 18 of the world. he has one of the best forehands in the Tour. If he has a good day can be also too dangerous for Ferrero.

There are more interesting matches in the first round, but for me they are the most interesting to see, specially Guga vs Arazi

whew, not that bad a draw for Ferrero. i was kinda scared he would get Gonzo in his Round of 16. i think Misha has a good chance of doing well here too. and hopefully Guga will take out Lleyton in the 3rd round. :bounce:

Misha vs. Max round 2 :fiery: :sad:

Lee

Arazi has been in a slum for a long time, unless a miracle happen, I don't see him as any thread to Guga. I am quite confident that Guga can make the 3rd round and face Hewitt (if he make it to the 3rd round, of course :D). That will probably the best match in 3rd round.

Just wondering if Marat has to pull out, will his slot be replaced by a LL or seed#33?

TheBoiledEgg
01-10-2003, 02:29 AM
depends when he withdraws

last yr Andre withdrew on the Monday so a LL got his spot

Yeah i think the same, Guga must win, but he could have had another rival in the 1st round, one less difficult. As i said "If Arazi has a good day against Guga", then it won't be an easy match.
Anyway, Go Gustavo tenha boa sorte em Melbourne!:bounce:

Paradorn lost easily to JCF yesterday in QF Sydney. Hope he takes some rest for ready for next week AO.

I love to see Paradorn play great tennis to beat Mark in 2nd round. And continue win over Gaston Gaudio ARG (17) in 3rd round. Then Paradorn vs Moya in last 16 is awesome.

C'mon Paradorn. :D :bounce: :D

Misha vs Gasquet :eek:

Guga :angel: good luck against Hewitt, once you get there

Hmmm it really depends in what stage Roger is in. As long he hasn't any pain in his right leg he should be allright. But then I saw that Koubek name in his draw too. Well as I said it all depends how his injury has heald till then.

For the other swiss it doesn't look to bad either well at least for the first round.

Good luck to
Roger, Michel and Marc

Hrbaty has a good draw, apart from the first match. He has a good chance to get to the quarter final.
