Oh as a result, Isner is the 33rd seed and faces Seppi in the first round instead.

Is this the same problem that plagued him last year? Tendinitis isn't it?

Simon wasn't a top player in 2009 anyway, complete non-factor :D

And yet his draw will still somehow be 2-3x harder than Nadal's. Just wait for that cotton candy draw to open up.

Simon is a crushing loss... probably won't watch AO now.

Good to see, he's been dragging himself tournaments for months now. Get proper recovery, then come back

Yes, tough indeed that he gets a tricky draw after all these years and records.

Good to see you have the right attitude about Simon.

That's great news. He wasn't fit to play anyway, glad he finally saw sense. Hope he can get some rest and let the knee heal properly before coming back.

The Bulge Thread will be the poorer for his absence :devil: He always seems to really enjoy playing in Oz ;)

As the OOP had not been released the following has happened

A Top 16 seed (Simon) has pulled out

Number 17 seed gets bumped up to be a Top 16 (Ferrer) and replaces Simon in the draw

The next highest unseeded player (Isner) gets a Number 33 slot and goes into Ferrer's place

LL (Ilhan) gets placed with the Qualifiers and is drawn at random into the 17 slots

Thanks for this, withdrawals always get me confused.

I didn't see it coming. Great that he withdrew. Come back in full health and spank some a**es.

Not hoping for anyone's withdraw, but do you guys know until when can someone leave the tournment and a LL enters? And if is seeded, the whole process of changing the seeds still be able to happen?? Is there someone still with doubts?

MsTree

I think until the OOP comes out but I'm not sure.

scoobs

Now the OOP is out the seedings can't be adjusted so if another seed pulls out they get replaced by a LL in the seeded position. LLs can be placed for any outstanding match that has yet to be started in R1 up until match time, I believe.
