Like both, but I hope Rios win :D

i think Carlos will win. Rios has been streaky recently, while Carlos has been red-hot! he's won the last 14 of 15 matches! GO Moya!;)

Pity these 2 are meeting in the 2nd round, as Ilike them both enough to want them to go further.
Rios isn't on top form at the moment, Carlos is but culd be tired.

The weather is really hot, and very humid. It can hurt Moya due to the fact that dbc pointed. He played too much these last days. And Rios, well, Rios is Rios. :p
You never know what to expect. ;)

My number one player against one of my favourites, I will hate to see either man go out in the 2nd round.

Could go either way.

its a night match so weather shouldn't be too much of a factor

just go Carlos !!!!!!!!!!!!

It was 29C this night there, TBE.
And Moya was looking tired today. Just watched the match on tape. :sad:
But he is facing Rios, so everything can happen.

GO CARLOS!! :bounce:

Tomorrow will be 30+ AND it will be very humid. It wasn't humid at all today, tomorrow will be gross.

Thursday will be 34 plus humidity.

And people say that Canada is too cold, pffftt.

I will go to this by the way, as opposed to the Sampras match :)

looking forward to your report Becca :)

at night it might be as hot as day (air temp) but without the sun its more bearable.


we had about 30C over the weekend and into yesterday in UK then we got deluged with thunderstorms (80-100mm in 24 hours)
