Re: Week 40: Palermo (Entry List)

Navarro will play 15K Future next week, no idea about Olaso (maybe WC in the same spanish future, since he's not on the entry list)

Re: Week 40: Palermo (Entry List)

Riba v Gil R1 is an ATP quality match in a challenger first round. But Fred has allowed his ranking slip to the point he has to play players like this early. He needs the win more, I hope he wins.

Junqueira v Carreno again in R1. Can't see a different result than Carreno winning again.

Kavcic v Vagnozzi R1 should be a cool match to watch. Two lightweights going at it. I like Benoit's chances to take either out in the second round.

Muster should have chances to beat Di Mauro if fit.

Very evenly matched draw, GL to my faves.

Nice draw for T. Muster. Di Mauro is by far one of the easier oppenents. At 5 p.m. tehre should be some spectators. In my opnion it is very important for Thomas as he pushes himself up to his best level with the help of the crowd. If he is able to get on fire there is a slight chance to win 1st round. GL

Marti beat Pashanski in nearly three hours to qualify here. I only saw like the last few minutes but the scoreboard suggests it was a pretty crazy, up-and-down match. Did Boris have match-points or a lead in the second set?

Both Riba and Gil are known as grinders but Pere actually has pop on his serve and forehand, which makes the big difference between these two in terms of quality.
