Fererro, Almagro, Nadal. With the serve in his current state prepare for an exit as early as possible.

Well Fererro won a tourney but the field was weak and he is very much beatable. Almagro in full force on clay is a bad match up for David, but lately having problems with injuries and he is in a bad form. Nadal - I am not even going there, David might get humiliated this time unless he is wasted from his schedule.

Ferrero played good tennis at times in Casablanca, aggressive with his groundstrokes though a bit patchy at times.

Poor Nalby...even if he reaches quarter, I'm afraid Nadal will beat him ....If Murray and Djok could not beat Nadal in MC, it's not David who wil do it, especially with a bad serve...We must be reallistic

Well, it is Kunitsyn instead of JCF. I'll just quote what I wrote in GM.

He went ahead 3-0 in the second set with himself hitting some hard and heavy FHs, but Kunitsyn kept swinging with his racket and got the next 5 games. Of course his hands got wooden when he was serving for the match and he got broken, but he played the TB as he did the rest of the match not giving Ferrero a single chance to do something. If he continues in the same rhythm as today and his aim remains intact he will beat Nalbandian too.

TVE is broadcasting it- more precise LA2 channel. Also Teledeporte for some matches.

I don't have satellite TV... And they don't stream anything, right?
Looks like you'll have to do all the reporting about David's match.

He is scheduled to play on Wednesday and I am sure that there will be some streams till then, but with so many Spaniards playing on same day I doubt he will be on the center court (he would have if it was against JCF thou).

Yeah, Ferrero would've guaranteed David a match on center court...
Looks like we might be in for another round of scoreboard-watching.

I don't know if you know, but streaming of Barcelona starts on Thursday on TennisTV.

Thanks for that report Heretic, and it looks like mostly everyone that watched it on GM agreed with that assessment as well. It's interesting - I don't really think of Kunitsyn as being a big hitter. More of an accurate hitter and he can change directions well also. I would have been curious as to how that performance compared to some of the other matches I've seen him play, for example against Safin in Moscow (where he picked up the title).
