Just can't understand why people keep on thinking Arazi vs Guga is an interesting match.
Even in his best form (TMS-Monte-Carlo 2001), Arazi loss to Guga in straight 3 sets. Guga is definitely in a much better form than Arazi now and I really don't see Arazi has much of a chance. I won't say Guga will definitely win, but........
I wouldnt be surprised if Gasquet won. Youzhny hasnt done much since his DC win, and Richard is in great form this week, taking out El Aynauoi and Mark, and taking a set off an in form Agassi. I dont think Mikhails done well before on this surface either.
In seeing recent matches (i.e. last few years), there is nothing too flashy about his play (it can get boring and "ugly," really) and there is nothing flashy about his on-court personality either. So why is he so popular? Are people living in memories of long hair and neon clothing??
