The Russians are coming!



Play has already gotten well under way at the French, and while there are a ton of matches on tap with all the stars coming out, this match has match of the day written all over it: Nikolay Davydenko vs. Marat Safin.

Now, I've written before how optimistic I was about a Safin turnaround, and this is his chance to really make a huge statement. I tend to typically underestimate Davydenko, and true to my usual form, I'm doing it here! I picked Safin at the beginning to pull off the upset, and I'm staying with that. Safin in four.

It was extremely a disapointing day for most of our boys.

Good thing is that Eduardo SCHWANK continues to impress everyone. Lets hope he keeps up this good form.

I was sad to see the likes of DEL POTRO, CALLERI & ACASUSO all going out.
