[20] FERRERO, Juan Carlos ESP


[21] GONZALEZ, Fernando CHI
[6] DAVYDENKO, Nikolay RUS

[3] HEWITT, Lleyton AUS
(W) PHILIPPOUSSIS, Mark AUS


MATHIEU, Paul-Henri FRA
[5] SAFIN, Marat RUS

SPADEA, Vincent USA
[23] NOVAK, Jiri CZE


[13] GASQUET, Richard FRA
[4] RODDICK, Andy USA

[7] AGASSI, Andre USA
MALISSE, Xavier BEL


[14] JOHANSSON, Thomas SWE
(W) BLAKE, James USA

----------------
[1] FEDERER, Roger SUI
[6] DAVYDENKO, Nikolay RUS

[3] HEWITT, Lleyton AUS
[5] SAFIN, Marat RUS

SPADEA, Vincent USA
[4] RODDICK, Andy USA

[7] AGASSI, Andre USA
(W) BLAKE, James USA

SEMIFINALS
----------------

[1] FEDERER, Roger SUI
[3] HEWITT, Lleyton AUS


[4] RODDICK, Andy USA
[7] AGASSI, Andre USA

FINALS
-------

FEDERER def. AGASSI



I think if Spadea defeats Coria, he has a decent shot at the quarters.
I also think that James Blake has the potential to defeat Nadal.


Interesting first round matchups:

Djokovic vs. Monfils
Verdasco vs. Henman
Fish vs. Karlovic
Rusedski vs. Blake
Coria vs. Mantilla
El Aynaoui vs. Srichaphan
Lapentti vs. Stepanek

Someone's trying to send the British players a message, aren't they? Drawn in the first round against two of the biggest forehands on tour. And may I say, poor old Bobby Reynolds - that AO beatdown is about to be visited upon him once again.

NOOOOO:banghead: poor JUAN CARLOS :sad:
That is EXACTLY what I was afraid of. The earliest possible time JC could have played Federer was the 4th round and - guess what - 4th round IT IS:banghead:
JC really needed a good draw this time - I want a re-draw.

Nice to see Marat get a good draw though. As long as he can keep his sanity, he should be able to make it to the quarters.
Andy has a potential banana-skin in the 2nd round. Only a month ago, he lost to Ginepri in Indy and Robby has been playing well ever since.

That's what the Brits get for bitching about Scut getting a WC, not Murray.

Marat, in top half, still long way to go. just hope he makes week 2

Hewitt in same half as Roger, that was kinda inevitable :eek:

safin has a draw filled with those players that seem to beat him even though he should wipe them off the court. eg, Beck Ancic Hrbaty, Dent arggh!! Easy draw for anyone except the OAf. But if he makes it to the QF i'm so seeing a SF with Fed!! :bounce: Hewitt who? :shrug: :lol:

I will be very happy if James makes it to the 3rd round over Rusedski/Adreev. If he does, i think Rafa is a very bad matchup for him, because he has not a good enough serve to prevent Rafa from finding his rhythm, while his shot selection/strategy is James' weakest point, imo.

Nadal has an easy draw....Fed always seem to have Santoro on his side of the draw...Safin and Hewitt may meet up...Safin can take him out. Gasquet, hopefully he can make it to the quarters to make it more interesting...we'll see how that goes.

I don't know dude, James has really beefed up his serve and consistency. He's been hitting 135+ on his first serves and serving an average of 120.

Oh Great...................AGAIN, Nadal has the easy quarter of the draw. How does he get so lucky each time? There is absolutely no one that can make trouble for Nadal before the Semifinals..........and that's assuming Andy decides to play that night.
