ok let's talk about this draw..Paulo got a horrible first round,Dent is dangerous on this surface..i dont see our boy winning this match,sorry. :(
Arnaud plays Davydenko,a top 30 but arnaud can do it.i'm confident.he can pass 2 rounds and then play Carlos Moya (or James Blake..what a first round! :eek: )
Seb plays Youznhy who always brings bad memories..but seb is way stronger and will beat the russian guy...even tho it wont be a walk in a park.imo seb has a great chance to reach the quarters vs agassi.let's hope!
Richie: he can beat the qualifier but then he has to play Nalbandian :mad: so i dont see any chance for him..unless nalbandian is injured (as it seems to be) and withdraws..we'll see.
escude has also a good draw,he might play schuettler in second round but rainer lost twice in first round this year,he isnt the same player of last year,i guess..so nico can do it and maybe meet seb in 4th round!


post ur predictions and comments plz!

Yeuch. None of them have an easy draw, but the top half looks tougher to me than the bottom.

Good luck, guys....

you're going to need it! :)
