Re: Jiri Novak defeats Andy Murray 6-3 7-6 (1)
I think seeded players often do not benefit from the Bye into the second round.
The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):
Federer 19 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 26 Master Series.
Nadal 15 GS, 30 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 12 GS, 5 Year End Masters, 30 Master Series.
