No Marc, that wasn't supposed to happen :sad:

Too bad he didn't get one of the better draws in qualifying, he could have made a run here. Good luck to him in St. Remy next week.

this draw wasn't to bad was it? he was playing an unseeded player who he has beaten two times before. Offcouse thiemo has improved a lot since then

Compared to who he could have played, it is a bad draw, especially since Thiemo now is a different player than when Marc played him in the past. Thiemo is better than Marc now, unfortunately. Thiemo, Nalbandian, Soderling, Ferrero and Ljubicic, those players are the ones the qualifiers wanted to avoid, where other places in the draw are much more open. It's just unfortunate luck for Marc.

Facing De Bakker's serve on these courts is never going to be fun.

Seriously, de Bakker is developing into a bit of a gun, like his junior days. He'll be seeded at next years US Open.
