    my pick is Monfils. Then Monfils will have to play Davydenko in the fourth round. I wanna see more of Monfils. I think he will make a dent here at the open.

    Monfils will get smoked if he plays like he did in his last match.He maded alot of UEs.Nalbandian will pick him apart.

    Looking forward to this match

    Nalbandian : For my money a genuine threat to Federer if he is uninjured wanna see what form he is in.

    Monfils : has been known to immaturely prolong points and do things on court for the entertainment of the crowd.

    Nalbandian will probably move Monfils around like a yo-yo and Monfils will probably be quick enough to scramble to most of the balls and hit some flashy shots like he usually does.

    I agree. Monfils's tendency to showboat is going to hurt him here. As long as Nalby is healthy and focused, he should prevail here. He seems to do well against the flashy French shotmakers. [4-0 vs. Gasquet; 3-0 vs. Mathieu; 2-0 vs. Benneteau]

    Terrible things must be happening to Nalbo if he cant win this one. He should be winning easily.

    I don't know who will win, but I bet it will be a 5 setter. These two make their livings in marathons. Could be a great one. I pick David, 10-8 in the 5th.

    God, what's he been doing for the last month and a half? I can't remember the last tourney he played. That being said, would you really be suprised to see him in the semis?:)

    Monfils gets tired very easily. I saw that in the 4th set his match against Chela, was breathing hard after points. Gonna learn how to shorten those points.

    yeah,but it usually takes him at least one set to wake up from his post-luch lethargic sleep in slams.

    The commentator is talking about Nalbandian's form this year and mentioned how he isn't playing with the same high percentages of point won, etc as this time last year.
