Looking at the schedule, nothing is really jumping out at me as the match to watch...Maybe delpo-hewitt, for sentimental reasons...

Hewitt/Delpo could be good. Both will come in after very tough matches so it might not be as predictable as you think.

I doubt Hewitt can hang for 5 sets with Delpo, but if he troubles him, after the GGLopez match, we might start to wonder about the state of the big Argentine for the long haul.

I do think Wawrinka/Karlovic could offer surprises, and what about the battle of the Frenchmen: Bennateau v. Chardy?

Youzhy v. Dologopolov?

Baghdatis - Anderson could be good. I'd watch it if I could, but it's in the middle of the night for me.

DP/Hewitt match could be good. They actually played at Queens and I think DP lost in 3. While I expect DP to win, you know Lleyton will not lay down.

This will be a great gauge for DelPo. He looked lethargic and sleepy against Garcia Lopez. You can't get away with that with the Wharf Rat.

quite entertaining match, crowd is packed... they always like Tommy here, don't they? Smile

They pack it in for Haas because he is supremely talented and a real professional. He is better technically at 35 then at 25.

I know his assistant coach..he is a local guy.
he is indeed. gotta love the guy and his game. unfortunately, the struggle continues. he held in that looong game, then managed to break Lu, but got broken right back, courtesy of yet another df.

also, how fast is Lu? quite some wheels on that guy.

and NOW, Lu got broken again, and Haas will serve to go up 2-0.

And so he does, 2 sets up. Looks like he will be paying a visit to the Doctor. Interesting section there btw, with Del Potro in it too.

Novak is the odds on favorite to win this thing? He looked like a zombie at the beginning of the match.

I saw none of that match...but I thought Nadal was slightly favored? Or at least, co-favorite.

He just played 1 poor service game. It was sloppy but he got it done in 4.

He is definitely allowed a bad service game, a little loss of concentration.Wink

Absolutely. Another Mayer in the 3rd round.

Baghdatis is kicking some serious butt...unless Anderson is struggling with something...
