I seriously doubt that nalby vs. seppi will be a greater claycourt match to watch ... but anyways, as long as gaston gets his W everything is all right.
The organizers have given more importance to:
First: French players
Second: Italian players and star players
Third: European players
Last: All the rest.
I suppose it makes sense from the point of view of attracting the public to see the tournament or to watch it televised...
But who cares? If Gastón plays well he´ll have the last laugh!
