It'll still be better than playing Davydenko had he won his last round of qualifying
Gonzo might experience a brain cramp or something and drop a set here. Hopefully Marsel can take good things out of this match.
Is Gonzo the highest ranked player he ever played ? I think so.
Yes, I agree he is such a LUCKY Loser to avoid Davydenko, Ilhan would have no chances for R2 had he faced the russian.
Ilhan played Monfils last year, he was also top 15 at the time I think, lost in straights. Good luck to him, I hope he can play to the best of his ability against Gonzalez.
