Last week Dustin Brown fell in the Johannesburg semifinal to eventual winner Izak van der Merwe. Too bad he couldn't defend his title and dropped out of the top 100.
This week the curse hits again: Napoli top seed Jeremy Chardy (ATP#53) loses in the first round against on-fire Rome winner Thomas Schoorel.
This week no need for the curse. Chardy is a disgrace on his own!
