    Draw up. (Women) Federer gets to play Karlović in round three, but a walkover in the quarters.

    Intriguing games:

    Round one
    Simon vs Söderling
    Guccione vs Blake
    Davydenko vs Gulbis
    Tipsarević vs Ferrer
    Querrey vs Andreev

    We were talking about a prediction comp, I think I could run it as games end around 5 here which is perfect time to post the matches.
    Messi scores on the rebound.

    I think Gulbis vs Davydenko is another good first round match.

    Wish there were no seedings tbh.

    EDIT: Just looked at the women's draw my tip is Jelena Jankovic.

    Hewitt drawing Rafa in the second round is hugely disapointing.

    Karlović is out now. Makes things easier for Feds, I suppose (though Robredo or Berdych in round three might be hard enough)

    Cant see Berdych repeating his heroics of Athens and beating Feds.

    Feds won reasonably easily - some shaky bits but Tursunov failed to take his chances - Nadal lost a set to Starace but eventually got home.

    Murray in a spot of bother here. Really getting a battle from Lu.

    Agreed, so glad he is nowhere near a medal.

    Hewitt has never lost to Nadal on hardcourt. Fingers crossed.

    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 *********!
