Nadal is a bad match up for Monaco (of course, just about everyone is a bad match-up to Nadal on clay).  But I saw the last few results from Monaco vs Nadal on clay and he has been clobbered all times.  I think the score will be something like:  6-3 6-2 6-1 to Nadal.

The Gasquet/Murray match (if we can see it from TV) will be interesting.  IF Gasquet can continue his good play - he has a shot against Murray (whereas Monaco has NO shot whatsoever against Nadal).  But which match are they showing? ..-)

MARK my words: Monaco will take at least a set off of Nadal.

I think Murray is in big trouble today.  Should be a good match...

Great matches to come next round!  Upsets very possible!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Murray doesn't look good at all. I'm just wondering if his back is OK. Murray seems to be moving OK tho. Richie is playing very well. It's too early. we'll see
