I agree with your post Yoel (but I have to wonder about Bracciali) and was very impressed to see Seppi come back from 2 sets down. I hope that Goldstein is able to come out firing tomorrow and win his match so that JMG will get the second LL spot (somebody is bound to pull out by Sunday). I'm glad that Okun got in, because I kind of like him, but I really hope that JMG can get better and play next week if he gets in too.

Well, looks can be deceiving. Gimelstob had already been treated for back spasms during a previous match this week, and since he was one of the first players on court, he had no way of knowing if that spot could be his. If the LL spots are based on Monday's rankings and not Sunday's (as some have stated elsewhere), then Justin knew he had fallen below JMG in the order because he lost 23 places this week. That's a roll of the dice that I don't think Justin would take (and he's been fighting this back injury for a few weeks now).
