    what did he do? did he look hurt at the davis cup matches? or maybe just saving himself for the bigger tournaments.

    Apparently, he has an injury in his abs...

    I have a feeling Coria would trade his abs for Nalbandian's serve LOL (now I'm being cruel :))

    Anyway, it seems to be a great tourney...I really can't predict who'll take it...that's what I like about claycourt tourneys, or about any tourney without Fed :)

    No Nalbandian, no Ferrer..guess I'm rooting for Coria :)

    I'm pulling for Moya, Ferrero, Guga, Acassuso.
    The problem is all first 3 are placed in the same half.

    Anyway, Ferrero moved on to the next round after 3 set match against a wc player Del Potro. Not a good sign.
    Does anyone know how Del Potro plays?

    It doesn't mean anything- Coria played a 3-setter against a qualifier in the 1st round of Umag and won it in the end.

    Is Nalbandian's ab injury the same one he sustained during the Australian Open?

    A 17 years old, 6'5'', great groundstrokes and movility. Good touch. Got a lot to improve (specially on his serve), but he has the talent. He's #150 now. hopefully, he'll break the Top80 this year :D

    Thanks for the info, Gonzalocatalino & Andres. I'll keep a eye on him. I guess how far he goes may depend on the improvement on serve.

    From one injury to another, Guga's body is falling apart...so sad.

    Acasusso defeats Montañes: 6/1 6/3.
    I hope "Chucho" win this tournament, he is playing great, is his best career moment...

    I like his big but smooth game. If it's the case that he's on fire, he would cruise to the final. I don't see any serious threat. Maybe Calleri?

    Moya made through the second round in three sets. Any win is a good win for Moya these days. I hope he has one good last hoorah before he retires. Next up Massu....it could be a tough one.

    Moya won against Massu, 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(4)! :D
    Since Coria's lost, it seems he can make semi...Hoping for Moya vs. Ferrero semi final. That will be good.

    Is this Moya's best result so far this year? :) I hope he continues to do well; the injuries are really out to get him!

    I guess he did well in chennai. Yeah, I hope just/at least (maybe too greedy?) one more good year for him to retire gracefully.

    Watch for Calleri. When he's conected it's very difficult to beat him.

    So, Calleri fulfilled the role of the only dangerous obstacle to the final for Acassuso. :( I shouldn't have said "maybe Calleri".. Can anyone that had a chance to watch the match tell us about it?
    At least, the other half of the draw worked out just fine. I'm pulling for Moya but hope it will be a good match.

    Just saw thew las 2 games. Calleri looked more consistent and Acasuso more tired.

    Pretty tight match, they were both blasting from both sides.
    The only difference was the last break of serve in the 3rd set.

    Great match, though :)

    (6)F Volandri (ITA) d. A Calleri (ARG) 6-3 6-4
    (5)C Moya (ESP) d. (3)JC Ferrero (ESP) 3-6 7-6 6-4

    moya ferrero match was intense! i think ferrero was unlucky though...i was routing for ferrero but oh well....but now i hope moya will beat volandri tommorow.

    Great win for Moya! I didn't think he'd pull it out, Ferrero generally gets the better of him... nice show though, quality win. The final is his for the taking, if he is up for it.

    Great job, Moya!
    I guess the final will also be a three setter, considering Moya's tendency?
