que pasa general MC.
who are you picking in rotterdam and in brazil general?
i have roger and almgaro.
and i have nadal going out in the quarters there or sooner in singles. he is in no shape to play. it is pitiful what he has become.
Rotterdam - I picked Federer to defend his title. I can't see him losing prior to the final. If Del Potro makes it to the final, we might get a good one.
Brazil - I boldly picked Zeballos, because he is the hottest clay court player on the planet now. But he could also be easily bounced against someone like Almagro given that his class is not that high. But if Zeballos gets by Almagro, I think he will make it the rest of the way to the final. If Bellucci gets hot, he might make it to the semifinal vs. Nadal. That would be an interesting match. But I think Nadal will make it to the final again. Can't say if he'll win it though, his return right now is awful.
IF Nadal continues returning serve from downtown Sao Paulo, instead of a meter or two from behind the baseline, it sends the server a message, no? Hey Mr. Server, I'm afraid of your serve, I need to be back as far as I can to make sure it doesn't go by me.
He needs to get up there somewhere nearer the line and challenge these guys. He'll get the ball back deeper and quicker, instead of floating shots to the service line for easy put-aways.
I'm still not happy with Clay Warrior.
He needs to hire a new coach with some of the millions he is getting for these Golden Swing tournaments.
