It has been confirmed that Del Potro is out as well. And reports say that Wawrinka is still suffering from a thigh strain and is not 100% sure he will play.
Tennis players are dropping like flies.
That means no Tipsy in 4th round for Richie. I was secretly hoping that he will end up in Richards part of the draw.
Who do you think will be the toughest opponent: Wawrinka, Cilic, Almagro or Haas ? I can't tell between Almagro and Wawrinka.
Anyway even though Richie has this 4th round streak going on, the loses versus DGT, JJ and Fognini force us to be cautious. There's numbers of players that could upset him in the first rounds.
In a way I hope that the small amount of matches played on clay this season will ultimately be a good thing in regard of the fatigue factor.
