Don't cry for me Argentina

In recent years it's always been a safe bet to assume that at least one Argentinian player would make to the second week of the French.

But after shock defeats for Canas (1st round) and Nalbandian (2nd round), plus defeats for Chela, Junqueira, Decoud, Del Potro, Gonzalez, and Vassalo Arguello (all 2nd round), and Berlocq and Roitman (both 1st round), along with Murray's fine victory against Acasuso, a lot is resting on Eduardo Schwank, the only Argentine left in the draw.

And he has a tough match in the third round against Paul-Henri Mathieu, who is on fire at the moment.

Still every cloud... The good news for Murray is that if (and given his inconsistency this year it remains a big if) he gets past Almagro rather than face Nalbandian in the 4th he'll either play Chardy or Tursunov. Which gives him a decent chance of a quarter final spot against Rafa...

Its tough these days for anybody...with Federer & Nadal around...not only Argentinians...but Nalbandian has beaten them both...so he definitely knows the recipe to beat them...too bad he couldnt reach them first....
