Don't despair. I think it looks pretty good for him until QF. Maybe Mardy Fish in 4th Round. Better than getting Almagro/Verdasco/Gasquet or something.
In QF his other options were: Federer (Robin hates to play Federer...very bad matchup), Djokovic (Even worse than Nadal in current form) Murray (maybe best option. I'd say Robin has a edge over him on clay but Murray has the edge on hardcourt)
If Robin want good draws he need to get nr4 seed back. Too bad Murray got the best draw ever. He could increase the lead so I'm going to root for Murray's opponents
