Tsonga.. out, Djokovic…out, Gasquet…out


First of all, if I were French, I would give it my absolute best to win A home tournament. Now it is true that France has plenty of them, ONE GS, ONE Master’s, a few smaller ones; so you probably don’t have the ambition of winning them all. But if your name is Tsonga or Gasquet, you probably should try even harder. Ancic took care of Tsonga in 2 sets, which should not be possible for a player who hasn’t had any real run of victories this past year. Gasquet went down against Soderling, who took down Nieminen. I’m not convinced that Gasquet belongs in the top 10. Soderling, at this point in time should be a win for Richy.

Novak Djokovic is another sad story. This guy needs to figure out his fitness and breathing issues. Is it a genetic problem? Or is it something with his individual fitness? Or was this just a completely no-prob illness which contributed to a stop in the momentum. But if you struggle physically after the Davis Cup, WHY would you go and play in France? Think, and rest that talent!

I think we’ll see a Murray-Youzhny final were the outcome is hard to tell.

I Brasil, Moya and Almagro (1st and 2nd seeds) are heading for a final clash, but Volandri who just beat Coria 6-1, 6-2, could join in on the fun. Or ruin it for Almagro.

In Delray Beach it’s pretty much USA all the way. Blake, Ginepri, Fish, Spadea, Querrey, Reynolds (who?) are still in. So it’s a good deal for the Americans, at least 2 players in the semis but with a potential of four. In fact, I believe that’s possible.

This Reynolds guy has beaten Malisse, Hartfield could clearly take out Nishikori?? from Japan.

At this point though, it looks like a Blake-Querrey final.
