Interesting match-ups

In India, def.champ Malisse is going against 6th seed Melzer. Malisse is probably a favorite in this one, but in this case ranking is not just a number. Melzer is good enough to get past Malisse.

In Doha, we will get some nice action. Davydenko will have to come up with some solutions against the magician Santoro. Santoro almost always plays close matches and this should be one of those too. If Davydenko gets a fairly high number of unforced Santoro will take it. Regardless of future predictions, it will be a good one.

Remember Tipsarevic? Defeated Gonzo in Wimbledon last summer? He will go against def.champ Ljubicic. I haven’t followed Tipsarevic closely since Wimbledon, but I haven’t seen anything impressive since then. Ljubicic is the favorite in every which way, but Ljubicic is far from where he was one year ago. At #3.

In Adelaide, a little ahead time-wise… players are ready for QFs. The one match I would look at is the newcomer battle of Gulbis-Tsonga. They’re 0-0 h2h and predicting the winner is a perfect gamble. Tsonga is seeded 6th, Gulbis is just short of a seeding. If these kids play their best tennis, it should be the one to watch today.(tomorrow)
