Who's top seeds at stuttgart btw?
Yes I agree, it'll take a while to get his head in the game and be training properly and all that... Hopefully Olympic results will be ok though. (still not sure why he's preceding the Olympics that are on grass with two clay tournaments...)

Top seeds at Stuttgart are Tipsarevic and Monaco. 4th seed is Youzhny.

Re: Bernard on the clay 2012

I think the reason why he's got these 2 claycourt tournaments in stead of maybe andover grass an hard court is because I don't think expects too much at the Olympics so he wants to get a couple more matched on clay to prepare for the Davis cup after Olympics which is held on clay. also I believe he wants to show rafter that he is getting his priorities right, by this I mean putting Davis cup practice and preparation before getting potentially a couple more wins at said grass/hard court tournament instead

Bernard Tomic
Grigor Dimitrov
Richard Gasquet
Nick Kyrgios

All right, well that's good in its own way too I guess. Davis Cup is in September right?
But I do hope he takes Olympics seriously too. After all, it is only every four years and I hope he can represent Australia well there as well.

Re: Bernard on the clay 2012

It is hard to be hopeful for anything great after the recent disappointments. The Olympics will be tough because I believe there are only 16 seeds and no byes so he could face one of the top guys in the first round.

The Goffin loss really hurt ranking wise... Looking at the live rank site for the post-Wimbledon rankings, Bernard will be 510 points behind from where he was before at #28.

yeah, the Davis Cup tie will be September 14-16 on clay in Hamburg, Germany.
