" As I walk along the Bois Boulonge, with an independent air,
You can hear the girls declare,
'He must be a millionaire!'
You can hear them sigh and wish to die,
You can see them wink the other eye,
At the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo."

Two-time defending champion Rafael Nadal was shown no favor at Saturday’s main draw ceremony at the Masters Series Monte-Carlo presented by Rolex. The World No. 2 Spaniard could play his first match against in-form Argentine Juan Ignacio Chela (who is off to a flying 20-6 start on the year.

Beyond that, in the third round Nadal could face one of a quartet of threats – former World No. 1 Marat Safin, No. 16 seed Jarkko Nieminen, French wild card Paul-Henri Mathieu and Belgian Kristof Vliegen.

Nadal begins his quest for a third consecutive Monte-Carlo title riding a 62-match win streak on clay. This is his first clay-court event of the year. So far in 2007 he has played exclusively on hard court, building a solid 17-5 record, which includes his seventh ATP Masters Series title at the Pacific Life Open in Indian Wells.

Top seed Roger Federer, who lost to Nadal in four sets in last year’s final, will play his first match against a qualifier. He would expect to face either former Roland Garros champion Carlos Moya or 13th seed Mikhail Youzhny in the third round, with a possible fourth-round showdown with newly-crowned Sony Ericsson Open champion Novak Djokovic.

No. 3 Nikolay Davydenko is seeded to meet No. 14 Marcos Baghdatis in the third round. No. 4 and Australian Open finalist Fernando Gonzalez is seeded to play former Roland Garros champion and two-time Monte-Carlo champion Juan Carlos Ferrero.

Seventh seed and Monte Carlo resident Ivan Ljubicic faces a challenging opening match against the winner of Gael Monfils and Radek Stepanek, and could meet 11th seeded Frenchman Richard Gasquet in the third round.

Those present at Saturday’s main draw ceremony in the VIP Village included players Marcos Baghdatis, Paul-Henri Mathieu and Novak Djokovic and Argentine legend and two-time Monte-Carlo champion Guillermo Vilas.

Is that what all the people who lose to Ferrero get to say still too? And people who lose to Thomas Johansson?

Gaudio is not that great anymore and Novak, if he wants people to respect his spot in the top 10 should not lose to people like this.

It's not Novak losing that makes me ill, it's the way he's losing, playing craptastic tennis.

He will just get broken back here.

I just can't remember the last time Novak's brain took a vacation like that. If you had been watching Joe, it was just just really really poor. He went absolutely stupid. Usually Novak is one to stay focused, he's usually commended for his ability to do so. It's just very out of character, whether he is a teenager or not is irrelevant. I can't recall him doing that. :shrug:

I'm glad I'm not watching, then. His mental strength is one of my favorite things about him. 2006 TB master and all.

I couldn`t watch the match today because i was at school but i must say that you are expecting to much from Nole-this was his first serious match on clay for the season and he played agains Gaston Gaudio-an ex-RG champion,who dispite not being in best shape is one of the clay court specialists so a 3-sets win is a wonderful start for Nole because it will help him to get used to the clay and the conditions as a whole!with every match he`ll improve and he`ll be playing better and better which means that at the 1/4 finals he`ll blow past Rogelio like a hurricane!Ajde Nole-best luck and thousand kisses for tomorrow! :banana: :yeah: :bigclap: :bounce: :worship: :kiss: :kiss: :kiss:
