I’m not happy to see an all-German 1st round match – knowing damn well one of my favorites will be eliminated is irritating as hell
Anyway I’m taking a sicky from work to watch the tennis ALL DAY – shush!
if Kiefer can beat Schuettler somehow, he has Gaudio and this time not on a hardcourt. Looks very worse! Rainer beat Gaudio? I say Rainer is better player on claycourt, but Gaudio is very dificult! Very likely that anybody of the two will be elimenated in round #2

I think in best-of-3, Gaudio is beatable for Kiefer.
The first and 2nd set, his 1st serve was under 50 %, if he has about 60 % on Wednesday, he can defeat him!
I wouldn't go that far. He should have beaten Rainer in straights or at least a more competitive 2nd set. But I'm happy for a win. Let's hope Nicolas plays to his abilities and makes a match out of Gaudio. I hope he doesn't go in the match thinking he is going to lose, but going in thinking that he can beat Gaston.
Gaudio up next, he has already two clay titles this year... That's gonna be tough for Kiwi. I think his only chance is hoping that Gaudio has to struggle with his mental problems again But unfortunately that Goucho has become more balanced.
But again, let's hope the best and expect the worst, that mantra worked against Rainer
