Re: 2013 Winter European Indoors, Allez!

Rotterdam Draw:

Roger Federer [1] - Grega Zemlja
Mikhail Youzhny - Thiemo De Bakker [WC]
Julien Benneteau - Michael Llodra
Jerzy Janowicz [7] - Victor Hanescu

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga [3] - Igor Sijsling [WC]
Martin Klizan - Paul-Henri Mathieu
Marcel Granollers - Qualifier
Gilles Simon [5] - Qualifier

Florian Mayer [8] - Nikolay Davydenko
Grigor Dimitrov - Bernard Tomic
Marcos Baghdatis - Benoit Paire
Richard Gasquet [4] - Victor Troicki

Andreas Seppi [6] - Qualifier
David Goffin - Jarkko Nieminen
Robin Haase - Qualifier
Juan Martin Del Potro [2] - Gael Monfils [WC]

Not happy to see Granollers in 2nd round, then again, I should see it as an opportunity for Gilles to even out the HtoH a bit against him. I can understand other match up issue Gilles has against a lot of players, I don't understand the Granollers one, no disrespect to Marcel but I watched Gilles lost to him so many times and I still think Gilles has no reason to have any trouble with him. But anyway, we'll see. This is the 4th tournament of the season, he needs to show some vital sign to give us some hope.

Moving on to the Double Draw:

Granollers & Lopez [ESP, 1] vs. Bopanna & Ram [IND/USA]
Knowle & Polasek [AUT/SVK] vs. Baghdatis & Dimitrov [CYP/BUL]
Lindstedt & Zimonjic [SWE/SRB, 3] vs. Butorac & Hanley [USA/AUS]
Nestor & Youzhny [CAN/RUS] vs. Fleming & Marray [GBR]

Huey & Inglot [PHI/GBR] vs. Del Potro & Llodra [ARG/FRA]
Paire & Simon [FRA] vs. Fyrstenberg & Matkowski [POL, 4]
De Bakker & Huta Galung [NED, WC] vs. Haase & Sijsling [NED, WC]
Benneteau & Gasquet [FRA] vs. Qureshi & Rojer [PAK/NED, 2]

If Paire is really a double specialist , maybe they will win a match, or 2....
