Most qualifiers have tough draws, I think.

Giraldo, Polansky, Montcourt, Lisnard, Machado, Brands, Stakhovsky have a shot at winning though. And obviously one of Crivoi and Greul will go through.

Kubot has a chance as well if Troicki is playing mediocre, but Vanek and Daniel are screwed. Brands and Machado have big chances.

Tough draws for the unlucky qualifiers.

Which Half Plays first ??

Sunday/Monday then Weds

Used to be defending Women first but no logic to the men
I think it's defending men first as well, isn't it? :confused:

Nadal - Daniel... completely useless match, should play it on the 11th court or something like this :zzz: Besides Daniel I can't see good chance only for Mayer and Vanek.

Agreed. They might as well make up a match score like 3-3-1 and send poor Marcos home already :sad:

Kiefer and Lalo lucky with their opponents ...Bozoljac is a big server and Kiwi loves the matchup....while Ferreiro loves to go for it with his shots and his return on the BC. side is very weak...Lalo wolud hate a player which wolud just make him stay at the baseline and keep the ball in play

both lucky with the draw but still it is not clear they will win

Kiefer loves big serves. That would explain how he's one of only two people to bagel Karlovic :lol:
Yes. Both these guys got lucky with their opponents. Lalo has a nasty match in Rnd 2 though with Montanes.

I think it's top half first

Monfils (bottom half) asked for Tuesday start

Of course its useless its only to provide the moonballer with an "opponent" so to speak,its funny how useless & weak players keep finding their way on nadull's half of the draw.:rolleyes:

Giraldo definitely has a great draw. Should be highly favoured to win that match.

I think Kiefer is too experienced and cool to lose to the freak show that Bozoljac can be. I'm hoping Ilija can keep his cool and win it though.
