Simone got probably the best draw he could hope for. Now it's time for him to take advantage. Kukushkin has had physical issues and not a good season, Millot isn't a clay courter, Zverev isn't a clay courter and is struggling. I expect a qualification.

Pippo got a very good draw as well. He should qualify.

RRH got a decent R1 in ERV, but his R2 match will be more difficult.

Michi had R3 points to defend but I expect Machi to take him out in R2.

Riba got a very good draw, if he's fit I expect him to qualify. I also expect Balleret to at the very least threaten Kamke, if not beat him.

Tomic will have a very hard time beating Machado in R1. It would be a great win for him.

The toughest section is the second one. I can definitely see any of the four qualifying.

Good luck Kubot! :D I think he has chance but he have to play really very well...

A heavy loss for RRH, really unexplainable and unacceptable to someone who isn't a clay court player and has had a mediocre season. The home crowd factor alone isn't enough to make this loss OK. Now he'll be touch and go for the French.

Mischa is really struggling, retiring with injury here sucks. He just needs to be healthy for the grass season and try to pick up some wins.

Really good win for Albert, but I wanted Michi to take that, I'm happy anyway. Machi I think will take that one, though.

Simone should really beat Millot. He needs to take full advantage of the draw he got.

Also I believe Benneteau, Kamke, Rochus, Pippo, and Cipolla will qualify.

That's a NASTY result, Simone. You are fucking sick.
