Good luck to Richard! Not the easiest of draws with Stepanek there and Vliegen playing pretty well this year, but nonetheless it's not as horrible as it could be (apart from Federer and Safin being in his section; Federer may pull out and Safin's Safin, so who knows?). Either way, as long as he's fit and uninjured and can last out a couple matches at least, it should be a good sign for the rest of the year.
Edit: Stepanek? Must have gotten Gasquet's draw confused with Baghdatis's. Gasquet possibly has Johansson or Mathieu for a second round. Not too easy either, but I could see harder opposition.
I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.
