Very nice list. Almost everybody signed up here. We don't see this very often at Slam qualies.

Only 5 players skipped this qualifying: Dancevic (117), Ram (124), Sweeting (131), Schuettler (169) and Hewitt (176), although it was the expected choice in Rainer's (is he retired already?) and Lleyton's case.

Rainer didn't play since AO and should announced his retirement soon, Dancevic and Hewitt are injured so only Ram and Sweeting skip the event :eek: That's why RG qualies are the toughest ones

As long as Jan H. qualifies, I don't care about anyone else. I will be heartbroken if Jan fails to qualify. But, obviously, I also want DelBo, Gil and Gicquel to qualify as well. And hopefully Serra gets a WC, and Berrer and Russell make the MD direct. Kavcic, DGT and Bolelli are already effectively in the MD since Ljubicic, Soderling and Riba are out.

I already have a hunch on a few guys I expect to qualify. The list is decent but a lot of these guys are questionable clay court players. Guys like Jouan, Velotti in the alternates I can see qualifying.

It's quite unlikely. RG has way fewer withdrawals than the qualifying event of other Grand Slams. Perhaps there will be more this year, because fewer players seem to have skipped it, and these may still change their mind. But 15+ withdrawals (or WC allocations) is a tall order.

Looking at the draw, I would be shocked if Jan fails to qualify. There aren't many guys on the list that he should lose to here. These courts suit his game, if he can avoid a Frenchman or a floater like Schwank or Kuznetsov, I 100% expect qualification.

Also, I think DelBo has a great shot at qualifying and I can see him really breaking out this event. I think he has the maturity now to fully reach the potential he has.

Filo V.
05-18-2012, 12:47 AM
Schoorel has to be the biggest floater. His game is in shambles, but his talent level surpasses all but a couple guys in the entire EL. If he turns it on, he should qualify. But you never know with him.

Also, Haas, for obvious reasons, is a huge question mark. Will he even participate here is a question. If he does, will he be fit enough to win three matches in a row? Or even one match? Still, no-one in the draw wants to be paired with Haas.

Well, Hajek has never before managed to come through RG qualies. He has had one good run at the French, but generally he is able to step it up at Challengers yet falls short at grander venues. It is very well possible that he will encounter better or more in-form players in the QD than he has lost to recently.

It is very well possible that he will encounter better or more in-form players in the QD than he has lost to recently.This may be true but the courts play differently now than they did when Jan had to qualify for the French pre-2010. Courts play faster and Jan likes fast clay. I also know he has a good in challengers/bad in ATP routine but the guys he'll be facing in the QD are guys he beats in challengers, for the most part. He's also only been losing to good players/high form players. Dimitrov, Sousa, Machado, Dasnieres. Most of these guys in the QD aren't in the same form and few are as good as Dimitrov and Machado in general.

I know this explanation is long and I agree I'm probably overly hopeful but I love his chances :lol:

I think the seeding is based on the rankings as of May 21st, so if someone else pulls out from the main draw, Zopp should be the number 1 seed I would think. If not, number 2 seed unless Bautista wins Bordeaux.

For some reason, I think its based on the rankings as of May 21st which means Matosevic is the number 1 seed, Bachinger #2 seed and Zopp #3 seed (if Bautista doesnt win Bordeaux)...I thought I read somewhere that the ponts gained in the two weeks leading up to the qualifying draw count toward RG seeding...which makes sense because the players in Madrid and Rome were fighting hard to win in order to secure certain seedings, etc.
