This is actually a decent draw imo, He's avoided Djokovic and Nadal, which is great. Hopefully he can topple the old man on clay.

well any ride on clay is bumpy for Andy so perhaps as good as we can hope for.  Thanks for posting gangsta.

Great chance for Federer to make the final and recover some good points, unless Haas or Tsonga can stop him. I suppose if Del Potro makes the SFs he'd probably have a good chance.

Nishikori in R3 will be very difficult if the Japanese man is fully fit. That's the only issue though, he often gets little knocks after going deep in a tournament that rule him out of the next.

Actually even that R2 match could be a banana skin. Davydenko started 2013 pretty well, and is a difficult proposition on clay.

Nishikori is not exactly good on clay though, Andy should deal with him, easily.

Also the old man isn't making the final.

Last year was that match where had about ten dozen break points in the first set, couldn't take a single one, eventually won it on a tie-break then really fell apart.

SF (seeds only): R. Federer/T. Haas/R. Gasquet/J. W. Tsonga
Kei in R3 could be hard if he has  no injuries before then

then in QF Del Porto could be hard if he is on form otherwise i dont think he will make the QF

in SF the only person i see him having trouble with is Gasquet

Final will probs be Nadal  which Andy will have big  trouble with

If I remember rightly, Andy was already suffering with his back by that time.  He said yesterday that playing on clay aggravates his back problems not to mention his knee.   No wonder he isn't comfortable on clay.
