Re: Qualifying Draw

Simone has a nice draw for two rounds. He just beat Vagnozzi. Donskoy v Alves is very winnable. Zeballos potentially in the final round is also winnable, as Zeba isn't a good returner, but that will be a tough match, and one Simone will have to play well to get through. However, my two upset picks, Bagnis and Vagnozzi are in that section, so I hope that prediction doesn't come true!

Bjorn actually has a good draw to qualify. But I expect him to lose to Reynolds. If he makes it to QR3 then maybe he'll have a shot, but I expect Minar or Bobby to win that section.

Harrison has a very winnable section. Pospisil has been poor, as has Ward and Munoz De La Nava, and Ignatik isn't a clay courter. Marti could qualify from that section I think, the two youngsters have great chances.

Chucho will have a good shot at qualifying but I actually think Junqueira will beat him. We'll see if I'm right.

Marc is in a hard section. Zemlja, then Ungur v Cipolla, then Rosol again or Copil potentially. He'll need to really be on his game and execute. I'm not sure if he's gonna make it.

Edu has a perfect draw full of hard court players. I fully expect him to qualify.

Schoorel has a nice draw, but his R3 opponent can be tricky. I can see Balazs and Souza giving him trouble. If he's on his game, he should qualify.

Simon has a good R1 draw, but he's going to struggle to beat either Stebe or Delic in R2. He's gotta be on his game, but he's got a passable draw and a decent shot at qualifying.

I think the Frenchman Herbert could qualify out of his section. Robert has a good draw but Stadler is dangerous. Andrey Kuznetsov should have a good shot at winning that section also.

Steve also, has to qualify. Dutra is pretty tough potential R2, but that's a very good match-up for Steve. Anything outside of qualifying will be failure in my eyes. Lisnard is half retired but still dangerous to this day, but I can't see why he won't qualify.

Re: Qualifying Draw

Andrej Martin is clearly better player, than Marti. It should be good tournament for Andrej. It is time to show his quality...

Re: Qualifying Draw

I could definitely see a scenario where only 4-5 seeds end up qualifying. I dont think more than half of them will even make it past day one. Lots of weaknesses in the top guys

Re: Qualifying Draw

Martin isn't better than Marti. Especially since this is clay. Marti got one of the best draws possible. Will he take advantage? We'll see.

Re: Qualifying Draw

ofcourse we could be wrong

last year the clay courters really struggled in qualifying and alot went down early, hard courters suprised alot of us.

if the courts are acting the same way this year and then perhaps we could be wrong and the seeds will fare better then expected

Re: Qualifying Draw

Marsel has an easy draw, but he's not in good form. With that said, I think he's going to qualify. The only guy I can see stopping him is Genesse, but I don't think he will.

Gilles isn't a clay courter at all, his R1 is pretty good v Witten, his R2 isn't horrible but Kudryavstev or Crivoi could definitely beat him, and I definitely do not expect him to beat Schwank, who should make the final round of qualifying in that section. I don't see it happening for him, but winning two matches and getting LL chances would be nice.

Re: Qualifying Draw

Stebe vs Delic should be a classic!

Re: Qualifying Draw

A lot of the seeds are in horrible form, though. Or are coming off injury. I expect Hocevar to beat Bogo, I think Fischer is losing to Mayer, Korolev should beat Marchenko, I think Janowicz will beat Gremelmayr, I think Frank is a slight favorite over Lacko, Van Der Merwe could easily lose to Zopp, and I definitely think Devilder is beating Beck. That's just a few. I can see half of the seeds losing.

Re: Qualifying Draw

I think Simone could lose to Vagnozzi but I would probably cry if that happened, so thinking happy thoughts

Yes, we will see... My explanation... Eufory from the fact, that Marti is talented and he is only 18 is not enough for this match. Andrej Martin has better play, he could play variable, he has more experiences. Marti didn´t beat any player from top 200. Of course, everything is possible... but I hope, Andrej will have no bad day and no complications in the 1. round...
