I think a brazilian will win this one. Feijăo or Mello are 2 bif favourites. Amongst the foreigners, RRH and Joăo Sousa have a chance too. Pedro Sousa can cause the 1st round upset. Gil as 8th seed will lose for sure, but that's not an upset this days...

Maybe i'll eat my words but I think Pella has a pretty good shot at the title. P. Sousa getting the win in their 1R match isn't out of question but don't see it happening to be honest. Cabal is a dangerous potential qualifier if he gets in and may do some damage here.
I think Ungur's draw up until the semis is pretty light. Semi-finals could be complicated, but you'd imagine he could conserve more energy up until that point than Feijăo. The Brazilian's in top form, though so that could be a key equaliser.

I think Ungur could lose in the QF to Elias. I see him beating the other potential opponents but Elias when on is tough. Ungur should make the finals for sure but he's unreliable. If he plays a Brazilian in the final, I expect him to choke.
