Main Draw

Seems they don't have the full draw out as of yet.

Singles Preview: Ferrer, Ferrero Set First Round Tests

Top-seeded Spaniard David Ferrer will begin his European clay-court campaign with a first round clash against Daniele Bracciali of Italy at the V Open de Tenis Comunidad Valenciana.

Ferrer, who is currently No. 16 in the ATP Rankings, has a 2-0-career record against Bracciali – including one meeting en route to the Auckland title in January.

The 25-year-old Ferrer is appearing at his hometown event for fifth consecutive year. His best result came in 2005 when he finished runner-up to Russian Igor Andreev in the final.

Ferrer's second-seeded compatriot Juan Carlos Ferrero (pictured), who clinched the 2003 title (d. C. Rochus), challenges 18-year-old Latvian Ernests Gulbis.

Ferrero has reached the Costa do Sauipe final (l. to Canas) and was beaten Acapulco semifinals so far this year. He has an 11-7 match record.

Gulbis, currently No. 87 in the ATP Rankings, has won two titles on the ATP Challenger Circuit at Besancon and Sarajevo this season.

Defending champion Nicolas Almagro returns to the scene of his maiden ATP title last year (d. Simon) at No. 31 in the ATP Rankings.

Having battled through the qualifying competition to the title in 2006, the 21-year-old is the third seed this time around.

Almagro will play Jan Hajek of the Czech Republic in the first round.

Fourth-seeded Fernando Verdasco will look to repeat his 2006 triumph against Italian Potito Starace first up. Verdasco beat the Italian 6-3, 7-6(4) in the second round last year.

Verdasco is currently 6-9 for the season, but always performs well in Valencia. The 23-year-old captured his only ATP title at the event in 2004 (d. Montanes) and has since lost in the 2005 quarterfinals and 2006 semifinals.

Last year’s beaten finalist Gilles Simon, the No. 5 seed from France, will look to make it two wins out of two against Russian Teimuraz Gabashvili in the first round.

Simon clinched his first career ATP title in Marseille (d. Baghdatis) two months ago and is currently No. 39 in the ATP Rankings.

Sixth-seeded German Florian Mayer has been drawn against Spanish wild card Santiago Ventura. Mayer won their only previous meeting in the 2005 Wimbledon first round.

Italian Filippo Volandri, the No. 7 seed, will look to record only his second ATP-level win of the season against 2005 champion Igor Andreev, a wild card entrant.

Andreev beat Volandri 0-6, 6-1, 6-3 in the 2005 Palermo final. The Russian, who reached a career-high No. 24 in the ATP Rankings (April 3, 2006), is now placed No. 235 after undergoing left knee surgery last year.

Meanwhile, eighth-seeded Spaniard Guillermo Garcia-Lopez challenges fast-rising Evgeny Korolev of Russia in the first round. Two places separate the pair in the ATP Rankings – Garcia-Lopez is No. 64, while 18-year-old Korolev is No. 66.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Main Draw

James Ward is a student at Equelite. Guess that's why he got a wildcard.

Re: Main Draw

Damn, I was hoping Bracciali would not meet Ferrer or Ferrero in a first round since I like them all...well, good luck to both of them. May the best man win!

Vamos David and Juan Carlos
