    I think Murray could win it, but his draw does seem tough. He actually played his best ever clay court tennis at Monte Carlo about 3 years ago (but still lost to Nadal).

    Gulbis? Are we talking about winning the tournament or spending the most money at Monte Carlo clubs?

    Isn't that the one where he took a set off Nadal despite being injured ? I think he played the match on pain-killers and the effect wore off by the third set. It is just unfortunate that Murray has had some physical issue or the other during the past two clay seasons. Fingers crossed that he will be physically fit this time.

    Yes I think it is, is was an absolutely brilliant match to watch, I was in a pub in London, and couldn't believe how well Murray was playing in that match!

    I can't believe at times that this question is even being asked. There is no event that Nadal dominates more than MC. I am still expecting 10 in a row, it just seems like his destiny.

    I know - the hope in me says that maybe, somehow, someone can take Rafa out but then a little Spanish voice whispers 'lo sciento, no es posible'.

    He's just too good.

    It makes me laugh a little that people are making a case for Murray beating Nadal on clay at Monte Carlo. He is miles off. One match ever he has won a set off Nadal on clay I think? Even the law of averages suggests he should be doing better than that. If anyone beats Nadal it will either be early or it will be Djokovic. No one else.

    Who is this guy Early? He got game?

    Only 3 guys in the MC field have taken a set off Nadal. Murray is one of them. If you think that equates to having no chance then that's fine. You should back heavily against him - the odds will be ***** but if you lump on bigstyle, you'll make a good few bob. You can post your betting slip on here.

    Over to you O Soothsayer - do your mouth and your money ever occupy the same spot or are you just another guy who thinks he knows the score but just ends up looking silly?

    Am looking forward to a potential Nadal Vs. Murray match, but Andy has a tough route to get to Nadal.

    if he gets to Rafa that mean he'll be playing some pretty solid tennis, even by his high standards.

    Good morning all, What matches have we got to start us off today then? Hmm Tsonga vs Melzer and Berdych vs Fognini... Tough choice. Berdy it is.

    My top pick for a suprise result today - Cilic to beat Gasquet.

    Cvac is her kid brother whom she keeps insisting will win everything, sweep the clay season, mow the grass season, and even school Rafa on clay in the process (*shudder*).

    As far as the second question, I dare not wager a guess. :D
