Paris Results & OOPs

Posted by gauloises1 on November 13, 2009

I hope you admired my concision in the previous post. What I was trying to say is that the quarterfinals lineup is now set, with the inclusion of the two results I didn’t mention: Gael Monfils beat Julien Benneteau 64 63, and Novak Djokovic rolled over Arnaud Clement 62 62.

So it’ll be Monfils-Cilic, Stepanek-Del Potro (he will lose, and lose badly, I’m telling you right now), Djokovic-Soderling, and Tsonga-Nadal, with Soderling and Tsonga needing to win merely to remain in contention for the WTFs.

    I think tomorrow could potentially be very upset-filled. I like Steps over Delpo, who didn’t look very healthy today and shouldn’t have survived (sorry). I also think Tsonga is in much better form than Nadal right now, but he better finish up Nadal quickly, because Rafa’s here to fight this week. I would love to see Sod beat Djoko for the first time- I can see that being a really fun match if both guys come out in form. And I have NO CLUE who will win the Bambi/Gumbi matchup- I see that it’s the first time they’ve played- but my money would be on Gael feeding off of the crowd and getting the win.

    Anyways, should be a fun day. Paris is crazy, but surprisingly enjoyable…..

    You seriously have amazing powers of foreseeability, Gaul. I really didn’t think JMDP would retire (although I haven’t seen him play the last few days, except for the last couple of games in the Marat match) so I don’t have the best judgment. Many *hugs* to you.
