    I'd have to go with Nalbandian if they do meet. Gasquet has been playing pretty medicore so far this year while Nalbandian has a clay title under his belt and is playing alright

    A clay title, plus a MS SF, where he lost to Federer in a 3rd set TB by two points ;)

    Tough draw for Nalby but I am sure he will make it.
    Gasquet is just not playing well enough in these days.

    What the heck is wrong with Gasquet? The way he has been playing lately, I don't think he will win his first match to even get to Nalbandian. It doesn't even matter who he is playing.

    I would love to see Gasquet take him, but with the elbow problems and from what I've noticed, he is having a bit of a problem controlling his anger on court it's gonna be tough. But I still back him, regardless of being in a slump.

    Unfortunately, Richard reaching second round is far from a done deal. I know that it may sound stupid, but I truly believe that Head Instinct he is playing with is killing his arm. He needs to switch to something more arm-friendly, like Prestige. Guga did exceptionally well with prestige, they both have exquisite 1hbh.

    Roddick would take him down, even with a bum foot and shoddy shoulder.

    I agree. Or he could switch to the flexpoint version of the Instinct ;)

    It looks like his elbow problems have really brought his game back to earth. I remember himn taking out Federer in the Monte Carlo semis last year. Having experienced tennis elbow, it is most difficult to play with the pain.
