ATP TOUR: 3rd January, Brisbane International

Andy Roddick is set to return in Brisbane after a few set backs towards the end of 2009. This is the first time he's played in Brisbane so I don't know what to expect from Roddick as I don't know what type of form he's in. However his draw doesn't look too strenuous. I hope Richard Gasquet does better this year; after a somewhat average year defined bby his drugs ban, sadly. Marcos Baghdatis is in this tournament; I remember reading something about his form improving - but I still don't like him! So hopefully he wouldn't do too much damage. It's weird seeing James Blake unseeded whilst Sam Querrey seeded at 5th. I virtually don't remember what Blake did for the whole of 2009 actually.
Gael Monfils is seeded 3rd, looking possibly to make the Top 10 this year. I've always trusted his ability, hopefully he'll finally deliver and reach the Top 10.
I've found a new liking of Jeremy Chardy who's seeded 7th, he'll be next to Radek Stepanek - last year's champion. I also hope Bernard Tomic does well because I do like him. Scary that he's younger than I am.

This may fall so flat back at my face but I see Gael Monfils doing well here. I bet you he goes and loses in the 1st Round now. I guess Radek Stepanek and Andy Roddick are safer bets to do OK.
