Re: Main Draw (singles)

Wildcards can be seeded if they are ranked high enough. In a 32 player draw there are 8 seeds. Marat wasn't ranked high enough to be one of them apparently. The eight seeds are placed in the draw and then everyone else is drawn and placed from the top down.

I don't understand your question. Even the #1 player in the world can get a wildcard if he enters the draw late yet is placed in the draw as the #1 seed.
Safin is ranked in the 30s, everything was fair.

Re: Main Draw (singles)

I am not too disappointed about Federer vs Safin in the 1st round. Yes, I like them both and hopefully it will be a good match.

Safin's ranking wasn't high enough to get a seeding, so of course this could happen.

At least it's not like the last US election where it was rigged and no this draw wasn't fixed.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Main Draw (singles)

I notice that Rogi has been in the toughest draw out of every last 3 tournament he's played -- so this is just another one to keep the trend alive!

Gooooooooooo Rogi for your second title of the season!!!!

Maybe Sampras took over from me and now Federer will take over from Sampras - Edberg

ROGI BOLEH!!!!!!!!!
