ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament - Rotterdam, Netherlands - February 19-25. Prediction?
Question:[Seeded Number] Player Name (World Rankings)
 Nikolay Davydenko (3)
 Tommy Robredo (7)
 Ivan Ljubicic (8)
 Tomas Berdych (12)
 Novak Djokovic (14)
 David Ferrer (15)
 Lleyton Hewitt (18)
 Radek Stepanek (19)
Rotterdam has attracted the better players this week and they have the best draw. Stepanek is the defending champion but his recent form is hard to judge; he played three qualifying matches to enter Marseille and then retired in the first round.
Davydenko is hard to read as well, he struggles one week then claims a title the next. Robredo had a very good summer in Australia and this is his first tournament since, I think he will do very well. Ljubicic is in terrible form, he was able to make the final at Zagreb a fortnight ago playing terrible tennis. Hewitt looking for form, retired at Marseille last week but looked okay form-wise. Berdych and Djokovic are very dangerous young players.
My tip is Robredo, his had impressive results lately.
F Prediction: Ljubicic def. Ferrer
Ljubicic and Davydenko have both been in poor form in the past week, but sometimes I think it takes an early exit to snap players back into shape. I predict strong form as they take advantage of a weaker draw.
Ferrer (big win at Heineken) and Djokovic have both had incredible starts to the 2007 season, and I predict them both to live up to their seeding this tournament.
