bjorkman in 4 - though I could be wrong

I know little about the players or their prefered surface. However I did vote for bjorkman in 4 (not realising moya had won at RG). He impressed me at wimbledon and if he can play on clay as he does on grass moya's in for a stern test.
 
Nothing to loose...

They both have nothing to loose and the oldest 4th round match in the tournament. With that being said I have no idea, but will go out on a limb and pick Bjorkman in 5 :-o

Björkman is a lousy clay player and doesn't really like the surface at all. He does have _one_ thing going for him - he doesn't get tired easily and can play _loooong_ matches without dropping off in level. He's a good returner and plays Serve&Volley.

I think it'll come down to weather Moya can blitz-win Björkman in three sets or not, and how good Moyas conditioning is if it goes to 4 or 5 sets.... Björkman basically outlasts his opponents on this surface :)

Jonas is really one of my favorite players. I look at his backhand as a model for my own; his ability to hit on the rise on that side is exceptional. He takes the ball so early and comes forward so much that it can really take a lot of clay courters out of their rhythm and comfort zone.

Moya has always been a beast on clay, and is playing well lately, so he'd have to be seen as the favorite. But he doesn't move with the same speed that he used to, so it could be interesting.

G.O.A.T.
Moya is the better claycourter and I could see him winning in 3.

But, Bjorkman knows how to bother people with his game. Clay courters aren't used to people attacking all the time and can get thrown off.

So, if Jonas can get his teeth into the match early, it may be a good one.

Love Jonas and the fact he's made the 4th Rnd this late in his career.

...in a Tier III I'd say Moya 3-0 any day, but in a Grand Slam my heart claim that it'll be Björkman (3-2)! :)

Bjorkie is a real grinder...a work horse...he will be tricky..
Usually Moya takes a siesta at some point in all of his matches...
he's been lucky til now...it would be far far better for him to come out on fire and do it in straight sets but I don't see it happening. I still think Carlos will prevail in 5 long hard fought sets...but we all know I'm usually wrong;)
Vamos Carlos!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Moya should win this without much trouble. This is the end of the path for jonas.
IF the swede wins, i´ll be happy for him, but im rooting for the great spaniard.
