Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Week 18: Johannesburg (Entry List)

Terrible field, but it's understandable given the location and the time of the season.

Great chance for Prakash Amritraj here.

Vaughn Hunter 76 00 over Sander Groen
