Sebastien would say that he's disappointed at having to play the qualies as well, but he burst into tears and ran away instead.

Mens Look Forward : Internazionali Lombardia

Say goodbye to Australia. And now the players will fly to Italy to continue their quest to fight to be the best in the tour. This week is another International Series. Interestingly, you might be thinking some unknown players would be playing here, but not in FATP case. FATP only consists of 20 players as of 1st February 2005. Meaning it is only enough to hold one tournament per week.

So we have our top 4 players playing in the fast indoor carpet in Milan, one of the most high fashioned country in the world. Of course we can't forget the Australian Open Champion, Joachim Johansson, who as of last week ranking is not even in top 15, which means he had to start from qualifying field. Interesting.

The #1 seed here is the American Mardy Fish, the whiniest player in the tour and rumoured is not well liked in locker room. His draw has its own interesting point. He opens against the upcoming new player, Feliciano Lopez from Spain. And Lopez looked fairly good at the start of the year, and this faster court will probably suit him better. If he manages to survive this round, he's supposed to meet either of the qualifiers. Potentially his opponent is Fernando Gonzales, who also had amazing run last week in Australian Open, however, he also might face his boyfriend, Andy the Duck, a rematch of Sydney's first round. Who knows Fish would be busying drooling over the Duck and thus, losingthe match. Then again, Roddick only knows how to win ONE MATCH.

The #2, Gustavo Kuerten is in fairly great quarter of the draw. He'll open against Sebastian Grosjean who is slumping and Carlos Moya who has not won a match yet. Next, he will face either Tommy Haas who is also slumping or Rainer Schuttler who is one tournament wonder [reaching final of auckland]. Kuerten's chance to reach semifinal is WIDE OPEN. His only opponent that will most likely give him a run for his money is Tommy Haas, that if he's more commited to the tour 100% rather flirting with Pornikova and Dookic.

The slumping #3, Guillermo Coria, the winner of the first FATP tournament. Coria had not won a match since his win in Qatar. His first round opponent is Rafael Nadal, who is not bad. Nadal had improved his overall result since Sydney. He has been winning MATCHES while Coria has not. Big trouble there. The winner will face the young French player, Richard Gasquet or last week's finalist, Marc Kimmich who barely make it to the top 4. However, this is not Australia. Moreover, Kimmich is one of the most incosistent player. Anyone can make it to the semifinal in this quarter.

#4 Roger Federer has the most daunting draw EVER. He will open with a qualifier. Most likely is the Australian Open Champion, Joachim Johansson, a nobody who is now somebody. Last week, Federer crumbled to the Pimp in straight sets. No one wants to play with a Grand Slam Champion in the first round. The winner of this match will be facing either Marat Safin, who is another play that is having a BIG slump, or Gaston Gaudio, the uncosisntent.

The Rankings

Our current numero uno, Joachim Johansson. He will most likely retain his #1 title if he's able to win a match. His safe point is obviously to at least reach quarterfinal. #2 is wide open between Kimmich and Fish. Whoever wins more matches than the other will likely to be crowned #2. However, other than that, both are likely safe to be in top 3 as #3 and #4 is 300 points different.

#4 is a battle of threesome, Kuerten, Gonzales and Federer. And again, unless there is a major upset, the three of them are safe to be the top 6. #7 and #8 is TOO WIDE OPEN. Hard to predict, however Schuttler has a big chance overlapping Coria. Below from #8 is anyone's place.
