Rainer has a tough R1 in Brugues-Davi. He could lose that if he's not on his game. Hopefully he will be, and he takes it. If he wins that, he really should make at least an SF here.

Karol has an extremely great draw and should make the SF easily. Grigelis could cause trouble but Karol has the type of game that should beat him.

Igor has a good draw too but I can see Evans beating him, also Lammer in the QF.

but it was Tennis Ireland, the governing body of Irish tennis, that announced the retirement and there are quotes from Davis Cup captain Garry Cahill about it so I think it's pretty certain

Funny how João Sousa starts to justify the WC he received in Estoril only after he's receiving, cause before he had did nothing to deserve it. But anyway, I'm happy for him. nice win again. 11th straight match without even losing a set! I don't know if there is any player on professional tour, in the same situation. Of course I can't compare the level of the opponents, but still, very good for him. Next week, a new carrer high for him.

Sousa has a lot of talent. And he has a game that can translate to all surfaces. Hopefully this is the beginning of big things for him.

He has talent, I agree, and actually his got a unique quality in portuguese players. The serve. It's crazy, but there is actually one portuguese player who's main strenght is the service! But his got to improve on other things, like he's BH! I don't know who's training him, but he lives in spain few years ago, (probably some spanish coach) so I hope they are taking good care of his game.

And for a tennis player, these days, he's still young: 21. If he wins another match, top 200 for him. I think there is not more than 10/12 players with 21 or less in top 200.
