So, in this opener, how many games will Andy drop? Should be a comfortable victory, but how many games will Eric snatch?

I say around 7 or 8.

Who? :eek: I'm serious, I have never heard this name. But Murray plays well on clay in this year, he loses about 6 games here.

Never seen Prodon play. Murray doesn't need this type of match for a first round:mad:

A lot of games. Not an easy match by any means for Murray. Especially since he hurt himself, is he back practicing?

Prodon is 29, ranked 118, French, clay-court specialist. Good in all departments (decent serve, good forehand, one handed backhand, slice, dropshot, adequate movement) but not great at anything. Primarily an offensive player.

8 games were won by Prodon, just as I expected.
