One of the most anticipated first round encounters turned out to be a major let-down. Really expected Russell to qualify and maybe win a round or two in the main draw, but my expectations where thwarted by Ventura. Am glad to see the inconsistent Santi through though.

Ventura isn't rubbish when he puts his mind to it. The fact that he hits pretty flat and the love of dropshots if executed properly can keep Russell off balance.

There are some good first round match ups and as usual some crappy ones. Just hope Santi makes it through to the MD.
