Breaker

Legend
Moya! He may have let everyone down last tournament but he can pull through here, Moya over Volandri in the final.

Davydenko is in a weak quarter. He should come through to the semis easily.

The 2nd quarter is more interesting. A Moya-Vliegen 2nd round match would be an intersting matchup, as would the winner taking on Almagro. Tough section but I think Moya gets out.

Andreev vs Tipsarevic is perhaps the best first round mathcup of the tournament. Tipsarevic has been able to knock off high ranked opponents early in events of late. Andreev better be on his toes for that one. The winner could play Volandri, a good clay courter who beat Federer on clay this year. I think Andreev gets through that quarter still though.

Youzhny should get a good test from Montanes in the 2nd round. Then another test from Hrbaty in the quarters. Should come through that quarter though.

I see Davydenko vs Moya in one semi. I think Davydenko is too strong there. Youzhny vs Andreev would be an interesting semi, and all Russian affair. On clay I pick Andreev slightly, but that is a tough call. Probably an all Russian final too. I see Davydenko coming up on top, but Andreev or Youzhny wouldnt surprise me either. I fully expect a Russian trio at the end, battling for the title.

Some early surprises in this event. #8 seed Agustin Calleri, the guy who was seeded to meet Davydenko in the quarters was ousted easily by Nicolas Devilder of France 6-3, 6-1. Mariano Zabaleta took out Kristof Vliegen in the first round, which a definite surprise to me as well. Evgeny Korolev took out the #6 seed Dominik Hrbaty 6-3, 6-7(3), 6-3. Another result that surprised me was Victor Hanescu over Albert Montanes 7-6(3), 4-6, 7-6(4).

Another 1st round loss for Davydenko on clay. Serra beat him 46 61 61.
Both Davydenko and Robredo have lost in the 1st round of a clay tournament for the 2nd consecutive week.
 
Another week, another defeat.

Davydenko is starting to remind me of Kafelnikov, who would play every week, with almost nothing to show for it but 1st round defeats. I am not taking anything away from either player, but just want to say it.

Davydenko needs to take his behind and come to the US for the hardcourt season.

In addition to Davydenko's shock defeat, #8 seed Marc Gicquel was upset by qualifer Steve Darcis in the first round 6-3, 6-4.

I'm predicting a Moya/Volandri final, but watch out for the young Dutchman Thiemo De Bakker, he was the number 1 junior in the world, and a real talent...this might be his breakout tournament.

The upsets go on in the QF:

Eschauer d. Moya 67 64 64
Darcis d. Andreev 63 64

I am surprised with these two: Eschauer beat Almagro and Moya this week. Darcis (no. 297) beat Gicquel,Simon and Andreev in straights.

Youzhny and Darcis are playing now. Youzhny is serving to try and get into a final set tiebreaker. Youzhny had 40-15 but lost 2 points to go back to deuce.
