Re: Upset-apalooza?

It's interesting that so many seeds would go crashing out right after Federer's loss. You'd think they would have been thrilled at this chance to win a Masters shield, but it's almost like everybody got *too* excited and ended up choking. Very strange. Here's Benneteau's take on it:

UNFAMILIAR FEELING: Julien Benneteau, who pulled off an upset of No. 6 James Blake, had a unique reason so many of the top seeds in the Pacific Lie Open have lost so far. It's Roger Federer's fault. "I think in men's tennis, everybody, almost everybody, can beat everybody. So we were used to seeing Roger win everything," Benneteau said. "For the first time maybe since a long, long time ago, he lost (in) the first round. So it's maybe a little bit weird for the people and then for us (the players)."

I mentioned it somewhere else, but I think that thread died: there are only really upsets in Rafa and Fed's quarters. Davydenko and Roddick's quarters haven't been nearly as surprising.

It means that Disney is off crying or trying to make last minuet pleas that they would all still be in under the RR system.

Blake? Bookies are becoming MILLIONAIRES.

I'm willing to bet that Ferrero will beat Nadal tomorrow, and Gasquet will beat Roddick.

Probably PRO Mr Disney, his RR argument with allowing the favs to lose one match and still stay is as valid as it can be (that is, still BS IMO)

It was a great day as long as your guy didn't lose.

I sorta hope there's a bit of a return to normality today. Yesterday was kr-a-a-zy.

It means that there is depth in men's tennis, some are playing badly, some just don't care. And also, some are already tired in March from travelling (Qatar, Australia, Europe, Dubai, United States...)
