Koubs! This means that yet another Grand Slam encounter with Ferrero is on the cards, could be a treat if it matches the two epics that they split at Wimbledon and the US Open back in 2004.

7 months can't go quick enough so we won't have to see Ram in grand slam main draws anymore.

I remember the match at Wimbledon, Koubek was up either 4-2 or 5-3 in all 5 sets and lost 2-3.

He has 107 points to defend, and I doubt he will defend even a quarter of that. Losing most/all of those points puts him in the 100-110 range at least.

Good and expected win for Stefan. He has a major opportunity to go further with Dodig up next for him. A 3rd round would be a very nice result for Stefan.

Yeah, great draw for Stefan. Getting 5 wins at a Slam aged 33 would be very cool!
Don't forget he also passed through qualies beating such guys like De Heart, Im and Sweeting! :worship:
