In fact, I'll be disappointed if he doesn't make the QF. He's got to take advantage when presented with draws like these at Masters. Best chance he'll ever have of getting close the top 10.
Agreed. It's either Tsonga or De Bakker, not both of them, that JC may have to face. Other than that it's a rather good draw.
Still, even qualifiers shouldn't be underestimated in a Masters event. Some of them are in-form players so could be dangerous.
Those qualified are: Chela, Llodra, Granollers, Leo Mayer, Luczak, Giraldo and Hajek. Don't know who will be slotted in JC's section yet.
Good luck, JC!
