Oh my, I think I dreamt that Marat would face Nieminen in the first round last night
Crappy draw, but we'll hope for the best..!
Did you, by any chance, dream that he'll win it all?
Why is everyone in panic? He DID play "great" in DC.
I'm not going to complain about the draw. If he's 'back' he'll play well and progress anyway. And if some Rafa stops him in 3 sets, then he'll play well in his next tourney...
If he plays shitty, he'll screw up even the easiest draw.
I don't panic
Jarkko is an easy one I think. Paulo... hmm tougher but it's Paulo. Professional choker. And facing a Russian. Anything possible
... then Rafa ofc it won't be easy but it should be interesting.
It's up to you mawatik
