that's good to know Mackem. The way Ferrer has been playing I don't see him doing that well and certainly don't see him winning Paris again. Not sure about DP though. One point made on Sky was that the smug one might really try to win Paris and could have an easier path as the top players who have qualified for 02 may not even turn up, or if they do, not in any serious sense (like last year).
I saw the end of Ferrer's match today and thought he looked poor by his standards. I can't see him winning Paris again. As I've already said, I would just question Delpo's consistency. He seems good one week, but can be poor/average the next, so I don't see him overtaking Andy.
It's funny, the pundits on Sky said more or less what I did about Federer. I reckon he will really go for Paris, especially if he needs it to ensure he gets in to the WTF.
Watching Monfils beat Federer was brilliant today. Monfils played well, but Federer was really up and down. I was highly amused by the pundits falling over themselves in their attempts not to criticise him.
