this draw wasn't to bad was it? he was playing an unseeded player who he has beaten two times before. Offcouse thiemo has improved a lot since then
Compared to who he could have played, it is a bad draw, especially since Thiemo now is a different player than when Marc played him in the past. Thiemo is better than Marc now, unfortunately. Thiemo, Nalbandian, Soderling, Ferrero and Ljubicic, those players are the ones the qualifiers wanted to avoid, where other places in the draw are much more open. It's just unfortunate luck for Marc.
