I return to a 9-5 gig tomorrow and am left to enjoy the Monte Carlo masters on the telly. While nothing beats being outside in the sun and watching tennis, I am not too bitter as Fed, Delpo, Monfils, and Soderling did not make the tourney either 🙂
I did partake in the ATP Draw Challenge and made some crazy bids for the tourney. Craziest of all, I called JCF to win instead of Nadal! Figure I’d take some risks on my draw since I’m feeling risk averse with work.
Here is how I called it:
- Round of 16: Djoko vs Stan; Robredo vs Nalby; Cilic vs Baghdatis; Berdych vs Verdasco; Lubby vs Ferrer; Garcia-Lopez vs Belluci; Tsonga vs Ferrero; Monaco vs Nadal.
- Quarters: Djoko vs Nalby; Cilic vs Verdasco; Garcia-Lopez vs Ferrer; Nadal vs Ferrero
- Semis: Djoko vs Cilic; Ferrer vs Ferrero
- Final: Djoko vs Ferrero
- Winner: Ferrero! Yup, I’m on crack but I feel like Juan Carlos is going to win one masters tourney this clay court season and it might as well be this one before Nadal gets his legs under him.
