Ferrero has very little chance of getting a seed now at 34. Well, at least he tried. And losing his position to Gasquet, who was even lower in ranking than him at the beginning of the clay season, what can you say.
I feel that it's so helpless to hope that someone in the seeds will withdraw to leave room for JC. Then again, it's as helpless to hope that he will get a wonderful draw with all those contenders out of his way. But all I can do now is to wish him best of luck and that his confident is good enough to carry him thru a few rounds. Having said that, I can't help but wonder what's wrong with Taylor Dent, is he going to withdraw? Dent hasn't play the entire clay season and he last withdraw from Hamburg because of ankle injury. Anyone knows? He is the last chance JC has for a seed.
