yeah what he said.
This draw is good i think, not insanely hard but no stroll, but what AMS draw is right? Karlovic, i agree, on clay should be no problem to a player of JC's claycourt ability. Novak is dangerous and really unpredictable, who knows what this will throw up? And losing to Dent here last year is a testament to that.
But its good overall, i like the look of it
