At this stage we still don't know if David will be fit to play, but we all hope he will. Seeing as the draw is taking place and he's currently still in the tourney, I think a new thread is in order.

Federer v Berdych
Blake v Gonzalez
Djokovic v Baghdatis
Nalbandian v Ferrer
Gasquet v Murray
Youzhny v Davydenko
Roddick v Robredo
Moya v Nadal

These are the projected last 16 matches if the draw goes to plan.
He's in the same quarter as Djokovic and is seeded to meet Ferrer in R4. Tough but you would expect that in a slam.

David's two opening matches do not look worrying.

He will face possible difficulties, taken into account that he is not fully fit, in the third round where he will most probably play either Nicolas Kiefer or Juan Carlos Ferrero.

Good luck, David. :bounce:

He has a decent draw, his first two rounds are not worrying and his third round is not that bad either. I don't think either Kiefer or JC have the weapons to hurt a fit Dave...fit being the keyword here. But a Nalby/Ferrero match in the third round sucks for me personally. :( I don't want either of them to leave the tourney at that early stage.
In the end, I just hope he will play. He could still withdraw.

not a bad draw compared to many other players...hopefully as you say he'll get some match practice in the first 2 "easy" matches and get fitter before he meets someone like ferrero or ferrer :scared:
that of course if he played!!
Vamos David

just looked in to David's section (Nr 2 of draw)

i find it most difficult: lot of strong guys ...
for example:

Novak Djokovic
Lleyton Hewitt
Marat Safin
Marcos Baghdatis
David Nalbandian ;)
Nicolas Kiefer/Juan Carlos Ferrero
David Ferrer
winner of this section will be most "trained" for next round

wish it would be Dave :)
