    Has anyone seen the Miami draw yet? It's supposed to be posted today, but I can't find it yet. Andre will win Miami for the FOURTH year in a row. Anyone who thinks Andre and Roger aren't the two top favorites, you're crazy. Hopefully this time, The A-Train and Roger will meet in the finals like in '02. Maria will win the women's.

    PS Why is Wayne in the qualifying?

    In front of my computer, obviously
    The draw won't be out until sometime after 3 pm EST. And Wayne is in qualifying because his position in the entry system rankings 42 days ago was not good enough to get him direct entry into Miami.

    Sorry, I meant why isn't Wayne Arthurs in the qualifying? Is he at a Challenger?

    Do you think Nadal will get past winner of Ivanisovic or Escude to get to Roger? I don't.

    I also think he'll have trouble getting past Escude or Goran. But, we'll see. Whoever gets through is going to have major trouble with Roger. :lol:

    Wow that part of the top half with Coria and Grosjean is pretty much wide open...

    BTW, for those of you who haven't seen Rafael play, someone just posted this clip on our Board. It's from a while back, but it shows his court coverage, and his intensity:

    Sorry, if this is too much Rafael stuff for you all to take, but I thought some of you may enjoy watching his shots and stuff.

    Susan, I think everyone here would rather have you post Nadal stuff than Roddy stuff. Keep it coming...

    Totally :lol:, Alan.

    But I know you haven't had a shortage of Roddy coverage, but that's true with Rafael coverage.

    The video above was from Rafa was 16. I just got this one from age 13. May be interested in watching his shots; they obviously progressed to where he is today -- seeded at Miami at age 17:

    I'm expecting to get some more clips of stuff from IW, etc., and I can post notices as we get them. Or I can just Alan know.

    Someone said a while ago that he plays each point as though his life depends upon it, and it does seem that way. And you can tell there is no place he'd rather be than out there on court. It's very refreshing; he's still in the phase where it's not a business, it's a game.

    I would have absolutely no problem if Agassi wins Miami. :)

    Miami has the best surface for Andre along with Rebound Ace of AO.

    If Safin loses to Blake, would it be a pattern? ;-) or he has to lose to Agassi in the 3rd round.? ;-)
