ATP Week Now: Monte Carlo

Posted by gauloises1 on April 13, 2010

Draw here.

Top seeds: Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Marin Cilic, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Fernando Verdasco, Mikhail Youzhny, Ivan Ljubicic

The tournament’s already well underway (sorry), with a full day’s play producing no real upsets but a few heart/loinwarming results, notably courtesy of Nalby, Pico and Boss who all notched up straight sets wins:

Boss! What happened to your awesome conquistador beard?!

Tomas Berdych overcame the windy conditions for a good win against Feliciano Lopez, Gasquet battled to a three-set victory over Dolgopolov Jr. (or O-Dog, as I understand he’s known), and Thomaz Bellucci sadly fell to Philipp Kohlschreiber.

See you in Barcelona, Nose Job.

    I was enjoying the Man of La Mancha, too: http://www.flickr.com/photos/36932082@N06/4480007834/

    Also, I have no idea what to think about Andy Murray these days, and that photo is not helping.
