He's definitely the favourite, nothing has changed in that regard :shrug:

I hope he doesn't. But he is n° 1 candidate

05-20-2005, 07:12 PM
I think he won't win! But I hope he can't win the next year! :yeah: Anyway if he will win... FANTASTIC! :p

05-20-2005, 07:17 PM

if he has healed up he has a chance, he's rested now so it gives him hope. but im still not sure on how he would go with all those best of 5 set matches, it's one thing to reach a final of a TMS playing best of 3 then in the final winning a best of 5 match, its another to turn up to a slam and play 7 best of 5 matches. he was winning a lot of his matches with very comfortable 2 set wins ie 6-1 6-1 or a similar score, add another set to that at least, and add a few more games, can he sustain his level of play and fitness for 7 of those matches? and adding the factor he may not have fully recovered from the cut and blister on his playing hand.

roger is in great form, if he plays like he did in hamburg he would be my pick to win. imo its between federer, nadal and coria.

roger has a tough draw though
rd1 soderling
rd2 almagro
rd3 gonzalez
rd4 moya
qf nalbandian
sf nadal or gaudio possibly gasquet...
f probably coria

that could be a tough draw to get through, upsets do occur though so the draw could open up a bit moya has martin first round could be an upset there. he is still my pick though.

I think he can, and I hope he can coz I put $100 vcash on him when he was 16/1!

i really hope so...but only time will tell

I voted "No" and picked Federer. I'd say Nadal has a chance though, depend how the early rounds go. I, too, wonder about his ability to play 3 outta 5 over the loooooong haul. But as someone already said, "We'll wait and see..." Can't wait, want to see it ALL!!!!!

Yes, he will win it, with the form he has shown on clay,it's his for the taking. If he beats Fed in SF, then he will crush his opponent in the final, he will be so confident.

But I hope the winner is a surprise :) They are always the most exciting.

It's all I had at the time. I'm not a slight better.

05-21-2005, 06:55 PM
hope not!!! :tape:

i wish coria would... :crazy:

Coria will want revenge for the straight set beating from Federer @ Hamburg.
