San Jose Main Draw


(1)RODDICK, Andy USA v GARCIA-LOPEZ, Guillermo ESP
DLOUHY, Lukas CZE v CARLSEN, Kenneth DEN
SAULNIER, Cyril FRA v PHAU, Bjorn GER
(Q) v (8) KARLOVIC, Ivo CRO

(4)ROBREDO, Tommy ESP v (WC) PHILIPPOUSSIS, Mark AUS
PAVEL, Andrei ROM v SODERLING, Robin SWE
MURRAY, Andy GBR v (WC)FISH, Mardy USA
WANG, Yeu-Tzuoo TPE v (5) BLAKE, James USA

(7) TURSUNOV, Dmitry RUS v BJORKMAN, Jonas SWE
ARTHURS, Wayne AUS v REYNOLDS, Bobby USA
JOHANSSON, Joachim SWE v (Q)
GOLDSTEIN, Paul USA v (3)HEWITT, Lleyton AUS

(6)HANESCU, Victor ROM v (Q)
SCHUETTLER, Rainer GER v VLIEGEN, Kristof BEL
(Q) v SPADEA, Vincent USA
(WC)JENKINS, Scoville USA v (2)AGASSI, Andre USA


Basically Andy should make the second round but if he does he has a very low chance of making it any further as he is likely to play James Blake who in my view should be top 10. Atleast that will be 15/20 ranking points which will push him in the right direction. Don't go losing to Mardy nnow Andy like in Indianapolis.

I think M.Fish can pose no thread to Andy as he has already been out of competition for a couple of months whereas Andy has got himself more acquainted with the surface

Andy's is the second match, following Agassi.  Start time is 7pm Monday local time, which is 3am Tuesday here, so Andy should be on about 5am or so, do you think?

Agassi and Hanescu have both withdrawn from the main draw. As Andy has moved back up to 60 in this weeks rankings, it makes him the 6th best ranked player in the tournament. If only they'd withdrawn earlier then he would have been seeded!

Whenever I look ahead, Andy loses, but with Robredo out - this could be a nice oppotunity.

It's definately a great opportunity to make the semis now. I can't see anyone in that quarter who Andy can't beat. He could face Phillipoussis in the quarters but unless Mark has an amazing serving day, I'd think Andy would be favourite to win - he's more consistent from the baseline and has more in his repertoire and his great returning game and passing shots could really hurt Mark - Andy's game always matches up well against Taylor Dent and it would be the same v Phillipoussis. A match v Roddick - wouldn't that be fantastic. I reckon Andy would have a great chance aswell.

Apart from the draw in Zagreb, Andy can't really complain too much about his draws in ATP events. In Adelaide and Auckland he was given quite easy opening matches and after that Berdych and Ancic were definately beatable opponents, Andy wasn't able to take his chances.

Karlovic lost in 2 tiebreaks to American qualifier Brian Wilson - a typical Karlovic loss. That guy must have by far the worst baseline game in the top 100 maybe top 200. If he worked on it a bit more, he might become a grand slam contender as his serve is virtually unbreakable at times.

That guy must play 3 times as many tie breaks as anyone else on the tour - nearly unbreakable serve, and weak from the baseline so I suppose it's inevitable really

It's a great time to play Roddick, he seems to be a bit lacking in confidence, and the Davis Cup may have it's effect on him later in the tourney (especially the 5 setter against pavel). I think Murray would have a chance if he served well, like against Ljbucic (sp?) in the first set (he then went downhill sadly). 75% of first serves in against Fish is a good sign, as I think Roddick would pounce on Murrays second serve. Murray seems to be okay at handling big servers, so if he just attacks Roddicks backhand (worst in top 30!) he may pull it off

Forget working on his baseline game, if he didnt have his serve he wouldnt be in the top 500.


He's a piano shifter who is very lucky to have a career in the game, although he is all by all accounts a very nice man, he is so ordinary, serve apart, as to be untrue.
