Looking ahead to tomorrow's action in Monte Carlo shows some intriguing matchups on the horizon. I know that there's been a lot of talk about Monte Carlo going down in quality over the past few years as far as player participation goes, but I think this is a great field with great players left--and possibly great matches ahead.
With all those "greats" in the last sentence, the tournament has to be good, right?
Look at what's coming up:
Andy Murray vs. Julien Benneteau, Fernando Verdasco against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Novak Djokovic facing off with Alexandr Dolgopolov, and Kei Nishikori taking on Tomas Berdych. And that's just a little bit of the Round of 16.
Premier matchups all around, worthy of a Masters Series 1000 event.
An old friend of mine and I used to talk tennis for hours, whether it was our own games or what was happening in the pros. I've started Tennis Talk, Anyone? to, well, talk tennis with an even broader crowd! My name is Van Sias and I've been playing for 20 years now, and not only am I player, I'm a huge fan of the game as well: pro, amateur, you name it. I'll post links to news items related to the sport, and offer my own personal opinion, predictions and hopefully get some of yours as well.
