Very good that they put him again on a show court, even he is playing no really big name this time. Maybe the schedule makers like him somehow. At least this court 3 now has not anymore that bad memory of losing to Rochus last year. He should see it more positive now after winning against Paradorn
I noticed there have been some people in the crowd that supported him with chants. First I thought they were some Germans, but the most chants have been in English. I also heard a few occassional ones in German that shouted "Jetzt gehts los, jetzt gehts los!"
I hope his ankle is well and that he gets quickly through this match not wasting more time than needed.
He plays after two women's matches, estimated time around 4:30 or 5am CET, I would guess.
