I appreciate everybody thinking Schalken will reach the 4th round, but I have some bad news for you. Sjeng is currently suffering a lot from a tenditis injury which hasn't really recovered yet. The only reason he's playing this week is because it is his home tournament and he is an ambassador for the Rosmalen event.
Schalken is more than likely to pull out of Wimbledon this year. :sad:

Johansson vs. Davydenko (That's if Pim Pim can find his game by then)
Hewitt vs. Dent
Ancic vs. Safin
Cañas vs. T Johansson

Henman vs. Grosjean
Ljubicic vs. Roddick

I am surprised that at least two people have Ljubicic reaching the last 16 at Wimbledon. Ivan has never made it past the 3rd round at any Grand Slam. :eek:

He seems to specialize in losing in finals to Fed and mowing down the US in Davis Cup. :rolleyes:

In anticipation of a few upsets, we might see these matches in the 4th round!

Roger Federer - Juan Carlos Ferrero
Greg Rusedski - Nikolay Davydenko
Lleyton Hewitt - Lars Burgsmüller
Mario Ancic - Marat Safin

Max Mirnyi - Tomas Johansson
Radek Stepanek - Philipp Kohlschreiber
Wayne Arthurs - Sebastian Grosjean
Xavier Malisse - Ivo Karlovic

Why do people think Davydenko will make it to the 4th round? The man has never won a match on grass!

heres what I'm guessing we'll see in R4

Quarter 1

R Federer v JC Ferrero

Ferrero to make a surprise appearance after getting past Mayer in 4 and then Robredo in 5. Roger comfy over PHM and then Minar, maybe with a little fight like the last match they had, but thats only if Roger is well off early in the tourn, then taking out Kiefer, but not after losing a set)

J Johansson v N Davydenko

Johansson to find his way early on at Wimby, winning a tough 4 setter against Rusedski and then another difficult 4 setter against Gonzalez. Davydenko to make a surprise appearance, riding his recent form wave to overcome Bjorkman and Youzhny, having a tough time against Jonas. Look out for Scotty Draper to take him to 5 sets in R1!

Quarter 2

L Hewitt v T Dent

Lleyton to survive yet another spirited match from Blake in 4, still a little rusty, but will be good enough to overcome Massu in straight sets. Dent to have surprisingly comfy wins despite his current lack of matchfitness, overcoming Berdych in R3.

M Ancic v M Safin

Ancic through without too much trouble, taken to 4 by the Dominator. Marat will take on that newfound grass confidence to see him through to R4, taking out Srichaphan in straights, and winning in a 5 set thriller to a galant Flip. A problem free R3 against Phau will see him into R4.

Quarter 3

M Mirnyi v T Haas

Mirnyi to come through in 4 sets against both Schuettler and Canas, then in an easy straight sets crushing of Novak. Meanwhile, Haas will have an easy first 2 rounds before he is tested ever so slightly against Tojo, but winning in 4.

R Stepanek v R Gasquet

Stepanek to come out blazing with straight set wins against Ginepri and Murray, and having little trouble against Nalbandian, winning through in 4. Gasquet to have an extremely tough time getting into the 4th round, taking out Kohlschreiber in 4, Schalken in 4, and then overcoming a partying exhausted Rafa in 5 sets. I hope not though :)

Quarter 4

T Henman v S Grosjean

Tim to defeat Nieminen in 4, won't look all too impressive, but will lift for an easy win over Almagro. Look for Wayne to keep him on court a while in R3, but Tim should outlast in 4. Seb will be in great shape with easy wins over Llodra and Carlsen. He'll have a tougher time of it against Ferrer, but will still get through in straights.

X Malisse v A Roddick

Xavier to have a tough time getting here, but will overcome Coria in 4, before taking out Ljubicic in 5. Roddick with an easy first round win, then after taking the first 2 sets in tb's, will cruise through the third to record a straight sets victory over Ivo. Soderling may surprise after giving Roger a shake, but Roddick should still get through unscathed.

Thomas Johansson had to retire from his match today, so that could diminish his chances of reaching the 4th round if he's injured.

No Schalken this year at Wimbly. He withdrew today because if his injury.

Weird one, but not so difficult imo:

Federer-Verdasco
Rusedski-Youzhny
Hewitt-Dent
Ancic-LaLo :o

Cañas-Haas
Nalbandian-Nadal
Henman-Grosjean
Soderling-Malisse


BTW I´ll probably edit if Djokovic gets a spot in main draw and rivals are not too tough :)

Why do people think Davydenko will make it to the 4th round? The man has never won a match on grass!

There are a lot of things that he's done in 2005 that he hasn't done before.

My prediction for the last 16 on this year's Wimby...

R.Federer (1) vs. F.Mayer
J.Johansson (11) vs. J.Bjorkman

J.Hernych (yeah, he'll beat Hewitt ;)) vs. T.Dent (24)
M.Ancic (10) vs P.Srichaphan (he'll be having his revival at Wimby!)

G.Canas (7) vs T.Johansson (12)
R.Stepanek (14) vs P.Kohlschreiber

A.Popp vs M. Llodra
I.Ljubicic (20) (for the very first time!) vs. A.Roddick (2)

Yeah, I know; a lot of major upsets... ;)

Just a rundown to see how my predictions went...



heres what I'm guessing we'll see in R4

Quarter 1

R Federer v JC Ferrero

Ferrero to make a surprise appearance after getting past Mayer in 4 and then Robredo in 5. Roger comfy over PHM and then Minar, maybe with a little fight like the last match they had, but thats only if Roger is well off early in the tourn, then taking out Kiefer, but not after losing a set)

So far so good :)
Mayer took Ferrero to 4, and Kiefer did the same to Roger. Both PHM and Minar were comfy, but Minar did at least put up a bit of a fight in the first couple of sets. Robredo went out earlier than I thought though.



J Johansson v N Davydenko

Johansson to find his way early on at Wimby, winning a tough 4 setter against Rusedski and then another difficult 4 setter against Gonzalez. Davydenko to make a surprise appearance, riding his recent form wave to overcome Bjorkman and Youzhny, having a tough time against Jonas. Look out for Scotty Draper to take him to 5 sets in R1!

The Rusdeski match was a tough 4 setter, but didnt think he'd lose to Gonzalez, certainly not as easily as he did.

Davydenko, well, personally I think he would still be here if he hadnt injured himself. I suppose I was being a bit silly about the Draper 5 setter :)



Quarter 2


L Hewitt v T Dent

Lleyton to survive yet another spirited match from Blake in 4, still a little rusty, but will be good enough to overcome Massu in straight sets. Dent to have surprisingly comfy wins despite his current lack of matchfitness, overcoming Berdych in R3.

Lleytons through, but not the way I thought it'd be. He did have a 4 setter 2nd round, but from a spirited Hernych instead of Blake. R1 aside, both Taylors R2 & R3 matches have been fairly comfy.




M Ancic v M Safin

Ancic through without too much trouble, taken to 4 by the Dominator. Marat will take on that newfound grass confidence to see him through to R4, taking out Srichaphan in straights, and winning in a 5 set thriller to a galant Flip. A problem free R3 against Phau will see him into R4.

Didnt expect Hrbaty to go out against Monfils, but Ancic has been taken to 4 so far. Marat did get through Srichaphan in straights, but the Flip one didnt go as planned...still, those first 2 sets were very close, who knows how it couldve gone if Flip won one of them. And Mark was galant in defeat. I thought Phau would be there in R3, and I guess he almost was, taking Lopez to 5 in R1.




Quarter 3

M Mirnyi v T Haas

Mirnyi to come through in 4 sets against both Schuettler and Canas, then in an easy straight sets crushing of Novak. Meanwhile, Haas will have an easy first 2 rounds before he is tested ever so slightly against Tojo, but winning in 4.

Well, same thing as Davydenko, I think Haas would still be here if he wasnt injured. Mirnyi's first 2 rounds were easier than expected, but his clash with Novak was tougher than I thought it would be.




R Stepanek v R Gasquet

Stepanek to come out blazing with straight set wins against Ginepri and Murray, and having little trouble against Nalbandian, winning through in 4. Gasquet to have an extremely tough time getting into the 4th round, taking out Kohlschreiber in 4, Schalken in 4, and then overcoming a partying exhausted Rafa in 5 sets. I hope not though :)

Stepanek didnt really come out blazing at all, I definitely didnt expect him to lose to Murray. Nalbandian has surpassed my expectations.

Richard did have a 4 setter against Kohlschreiber, and although Schalken didnt play, he was still taken to 4 in his R2 match. I definitely thought he'd be playing Rafa in R3 though.




Quarter 4

T Henman v S Grosjean

Tim to defeat Nieminen in 4, won't look all too impressive, but will lift for an easy win over Almagro. Look for Wayne to keep him on court a while in R3, but Tim should outlast in 4. Seb will be in great shape with easy wins over Llodra and Carlsen. He'll have a tougher time of it against Ferrer, but will still get through in straights.

Tim was poo....did win R1, and certainly didnt look all too impressive. Tursunov was a surprise for me. As for Seb, Llodra sure wasnt easy. He didnt come out in great shape, but he's definitely improved. All in all, nothing in this part of the draw, aside from Seb winning, happened as I thought it would.




X Malisse v A Roddick

Xavier to have a tough time getting here, but will overcome Coria in 4, before taking out Ljubicic in 5. Roddick with an easy first round win, then after taking the first 2 sets in tb's, will cruise through the third to record a straight sets victory over Ivo. Soderling may surprise after giving Roger a shake, but Roddick should still get through unscathed.

Xman did have a tough time, so tought in fact that he didnt make it at all. Underestimated the might and fight of Coria, so glad I was wrong about that one. Overall Quarter 4 tripped me up badly...Karlovic didnt make it through, Roddick got taken to 5, I overestimated the capabilities of Ljubicic to make it to R3 of a slam, and thought Soderling would make it past R1.
