Expected easy win for Dudi. 16 straight wins for the #1 Israeli. Hopefully Fred can start winning again soon. Been a tough stretch for him.

Dudi did very well on return today, and that aspect of his game will give other players fits. It will be interesting to see him v Simon, should they meet.

Gil was up a break in the 1st set, then Dudi realised who he was playing and what surface it was. Keeps the winning streak alive and actually has a pretty kind draw.

Sela does have the current longest winning streak on tour, correct?

This is not a surface for Gil, very expected scoreline, I think Dudi even can progress here further...

Well, I like Fred slightly more than Dudi, but this is grass. And since Dudi is cool, this is a good result. Fred can make up for this loss with a good result next week in Braunschweig.

There have been disgusting results on day 1 but this isn't one of them.

Twinkle Toes Sela giving us a taste of his magical elven grass tennis. Hope he can make a nice little run here.

Expected, this would be the score in favour of Gil, if it was on clay. In grass, no doubt about Sela winning. Gil lost a lot of places this week, because of Milan win last year, but he doesn't got almost zero to defend until the rest of the year, so if he focus on clay challengers and 250 ATP's, he can end up the season in top70 or even in top60.

Dudi kicks ass when he's on form. Really enjoyed him vs Roddick at Queens, and vs Boredo at Wimby.

Sela can reach 4th round here. Simon/ERV and Potro are winnable.
