It might be a bit early to start this thread but i just can't wait for the european claycourt season! By Dark Horse i don't mean people like Davydenko, Nalbandian, or even Federer because regardless of their recent form (or lack of) they have to be considered serious contenders. It'd be nice if we could keep this one going along all the way through to the French Open, see how the claycourt season develops and takes shape and hopefully we'll get a '97 Guga, Verkerk, Gaudio or Puerta this year! Given what i've seen in the last couple of seasons and especially earlier this year during the South American claycourt swing, i have to say that Nicolas Almagro has to be one of the main threats to the big guys, with a favourable draw he could go deep into the second week, and dare I say it, maybe even lift the title! Your thoughts and opinions please... let the dirtballing begin!!!!
