Judging by the way he won it last year, I don't think he needs any luck - he seems fated to win no matter who he plays.

He beat Robredo 1 and 2, but check out these scores from his other matches and see the similarity:

d. Ferrero 5/7 6/1 6/0
d. Federer 3/6 7/6 7/5
d. Grosjean 4/6 7/6 7/5 (was down 4/5 0-40 in the last set and saved three consecutive match points)
d. Henman (grrr) 3/6 7/6 6/4

I'm telling you, he is destined to keep up his winning streak there; and if he plays Federer and Henman again, both of whom he's beaten in the last two years there, I should say he's a surefire bet.

I'm a bit worried about Nico's thigh injury in Marseille. Hopeefully he'll do well there despite it and then has a superb week in Rotterdam! :bounce:

hmm...tantalising... I didn't know Escude won Rotterdam the previous 2 yrs.... well....it all depends on the draw.... who knows he might end up meeting some1 like Hrbaty or Ljubicic in the first round and get knocked out......who won't be seated I dun think...

poor Nico.... he had to retire again against Seb... :( he would have no doubt won this tourney if he had been 100% (he said that he had played 50-60% this week) :( :( :(

becos tennis is not just about hitting the ball...it's having the confidence to hit it well... as i have re-iterated so often... professional tennis is 20% physical 80% mental...
