ATP Marseille, Buenos Aires and Memphis

This week looks like it will be HOT! We'll see a welcomed return by Novak Djokovic who will contest in Marseille. He will face Jeremy Chardy in the first round which should be a good first match. Marat Safin will also be on his section of the draw. Tsonga will possibly dominate his side of the draw unless Turusnov has a word in that as I don't see Feliciano Lopez making an impact. Berdych Vs. Youhzny in the first round! but anyway that seems interesting. Gael Monfils is in that section whilst Richard Gasquet is a seed again! lol. oh and let's not forget Gilles Simon - how many French are there! Actually to be precise there are 11 French players in the draw excluding any possible French Qualifiers!
In Buenos Aires we yet again have a South American/Spanish contingent dominating the field. In fact only 3 players (excluding qualifiers) are not of either background. Not really sure who will be the eventual winner.
Whilst the American's are in full force at Memphis. The players are basically the same as San Jose but the draw is different. Roddick, Nishikori, Ginepri and Haas are all bunched into the same section. Then we have Blake Vs. Hewitt in the first round - bye bye Hewitt. Mardy Fish this weeks San Jose finalist will be in the draw. Stepanek is also lurking beneath with Del Potro on his side.
