    in this tournament i give Tommy Haas NO CHANCE of winning at all, in fact even though hes seeded he will probably go out first round...
    Is this some sort of reverse psychology Simon. You've always said that Tommy will win every tournament that he plays, yet he does ****.

    This new strategy certainly makes sense.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    no because previously believed he could win any tournament he entered, im no longer of that opinion, hes let me and his fans down this year, if he has another dud year in 2006 hes wasted his career cause he will be 28 then and he really hould have had 2 or 3 majors in the bag by now...

    the draw is out and well what can u say, i was right in saying Haas would get a qualifier then a top seed in the 3rd round, hes been drawn to meet Roddick. Id be surprised if he gets that far anyway..
    as usual its time for my usual semi final predictions...

    Roger Federer vs Lleyton Hewitt
    Tommy Haas/Andy Roddick vs Igor Andreev/Sebastien Grosjean

    Late 20s is usually the prime of any tennis player. Unless you're some kind of gifted tennis god. *cough* Bjon Borg *cough* Roger Federer.

    Obviously Federer will go in strong favourite, but I'll also be hoping that Safin could win a second major, and will also back Nalbandian to hopefully go far in the tourny.

    no one except Federer, Nadal and Roddick has won anything of note for a while now, they are easily the form three players...

    Let me guess........Hewitt, Federer, Roddick and Safin to make the semis, and Federer to blast whoever off the court in the final. We need Sampras back to take on Federer.

    More generally, I just can't get into tennis anymore. There's no connection between the players and the fans anymore. The players are so aloof. I just can't get into it like I could when there were players like Edberg, McEnroe, Llendl, Rafter, Sampras etc. They're all so uninteresting nowadays - I don't think the players respect the fans or the game like they used to. I just don't feel anything for the players anymore.

    Roddick gone, losing in three tie breakers to Giles Muller, Safin pulled out too, which means that partof the draw is opening up, more importantly its tommy haas' section of the draw! he must be some sort of a chance at making the semis...

    Roddick's early demise is disappointing. Thought his best chance of knocking off Federer would have been here, the patriotism of his home crowd getting him over the line.

    I was saying it was his best chance of knocking off Federer though.
