    Well, it surely looks like no one can really challenge Federer-Nadal
    finals but who could be the dangerous floaters this FO ?
    I mean some guys who can spoil this whole rivarly things ?

    Let's see the Nadal's half
    There's Ivo Kalovic if he reaches R-16 and serves out of his
    mind..

    Of course, there's Almagro and Blake. Hrbaty is always dangerous.
    Also Stepanek because of S&V style

    How about Federer's half.
    I don't see any one in his quarter maybe except Ancic?
    Gasquet is very dangerous of course if he advances further to meet Federer.
    Moya is after all FO champion.

    I somehow think Gaudio can be dangerous but he has to reach semi-final to meet #1 seed.

    Blake has been Nadal's nemesis. Nadal didn't play his best tennis today, so anything is possible....His performance against Soderling, despite the wind, may put some wind in the sails of his upcoming potential opponents. :)

    I could definately see Robredo putting a crimp in a top seed's day. I'm not sure where he sits in terms of the draw. Federer's half or Nadal's half?

    Yeah, Nadal didn't play and win convincingly earlier today. Federer also had a sketchy start. Let's see if their momentum rolls on in the next round. Rightnow, it's anyone's game. I woundn't be surprised if Nadal gets ousted before the semi's...

    Definitely Almagro. He is the definition of a dangerous floater, especially on clay. Acasuso is a threat as well, but he'll be tired after that marathon against Santoro. I just don't seem Blake getting very far in this tournament, especially when his next round opponent is Nicolas Almagro.

    Man, you just went out on a serious limb there.
    Drinks on us if you're right.

    BTW, I think it's funny that a guy called babolatfan uses a tournagripped Dunlop strung with luxilon. Maybe it's just your shoes.
