Good to see from the pics that that terrible facial hair from the AO qualies is gone!
Since Sweeting won the 2nd of the final round of qualifying matches, wouldn't he then be in the 2nd qualifier spot against Istomin in the 1st round of the main draw?
Although his record against Verdasco and Istomin is the same, Verdasco might be a tougher opponent for Sweeting. Sure, Verdasco did pretty badly in 2012, but with the righty-lefty matchup and Verdasco's strong forehand...that would be the match I would want to avoid in the first round.
Soon to be a moot point though anyway, I suppose.
