Top players down and out

We haven’t even gotten to the night matches and almost all seeds are out. David Ferrer lost 2-6, 5-7 against qualifier Zverev. Llodra took care of Davydenko in 2 as well, and same old by Karlovic over Berdych. Biggest upset was certainly Seppi’s suprise win over Nadal 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. What is this telling you? I thought Federer and Djokovic should have played this week so that they are ready for Dubai. If Nadal and the other guys play this poorly in Dubai (those who actually will play there), will most likely have a difficult time in March and the two master’s.

In Buenos Aires the story is opposite. All seeds are winning, including Nalbandian, Chela, Almagro, and Starace. The other half of R16 will be played today.

San Jose is still a in R16 and the two highlights are Haas-Isner and Roddick-Nishikori. Interesting to see what Isner can do at home, if he can still play like he did in August-September and if Roddick has the power to take out the Japanese Nishikori, who showed his good pal Blake a thing or two about tennis on Sunday.
