Re: It's nice to have you Carsten.
Great win for Carsten. He should beat Ward in the final as well which would be great. Unfortunately it is on green clay and not the red clay although they are still similar. In this form he has a great chance to do well next week based on the entry list. Of those above him on the entry list,
Kim - in FO maindraw so I don't know if he will all that keen to go deep in an American challenger which would only give him a few days at most to prepare for the FO
Spadea and Soeda - In mug form
Udomchoke - Currently playing on Korean Hardcourts
Bogomolov and Warburg - Returning after a long break
And as for the guys below him I don't think many would pose a major threat with the exception of Russell.
Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)
