Albert Costa(what a draw )
Juan Carlos Ferrero(against Thomas E :fiery: )
Oh Gosh! Everyone is talking about Gugas possible second round clash with Safin, forgeting his first round draw is also "great" I mean, Andrei Pavel is tough. And he is still the defending champion of this thing, geesh! :fiery:
Talk about Stupid draw...
Sorry, but I need this : DDDDDAAAAAAAMMMMMMMNNNNNN!!!!
:fiery: :fiery: :mad
Yeah, I dont blame anyone for forgetting that.... Its odd.
Anyway, Pavel is a good player. Now that I did vent enough o) I can say it objectively: its a better draw for Guga than someone like Rusedski. Its well known Guga has problems with net players. And Kuerten leads the head-to-head 6-0, and although 5 of these wins were on clay, it says something.
It should be an interesting match. Very dangerous, though.
yeah,despite Pavel is defending champion,I think Guga can win this one even it's hard court.
But Pavel is defending champion,so maybe he knows how to play well here,so I think it's still a tough match for Guga.
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO
Juan Ignacio Chela
I was mainly looking for my two favorite up-and-comers, and it's 1 and 1 for them. Jarkko Nieminen drew Richard Kraijeck (yeek!), but Michel Kratochvil drew a qualifier.
But it looks like a lot of people got bad draws. James Blake will most likely face Tim Henman in the second round Michel will probably see Roger Federer in round two But, if Juan Carlos can get through his first round, he should have a relatively easy time until the quarters or so.
All in all, it's going to be a very interesting tournament!
