Re: Worst first round match?

Sorry for seeming clueless but I looked at the first round matches listed up in the tournament section of this forum but I can't see anywhere where the players ate listed into quarters or who's exactly in which half of the draw etc etc.

Where can I get a link to this?


Thanks

Re: Worst first round match?

Devvarman-Nieminen doesn't look good indeed,

but Lacko vs a doubles player (Cabal ?) will probably look worse, as Karlovic is out and will be replaced by a doubles player.

Re: Worst first round match?

Why is Lu-Jaziri bad match?
Lu is decent grass court player and he sometimes plays against higher rank opponents.
