1R: Chris Guccione AUS (whoever that might be)
2R: Lukas Dlouhy CZE or Philipp Kohlschreiber GER (whoever they might be)
3R: Feliciano Lopez ESP (31) (probably)

I don't want to look further but duck in QF looks nice :)

Yeah, looks like we'll have to see what kind of a day will it be for Ivan, cause he wasn't at his best today, at least at first two sets, and yes, Lopez was really good till then.

I believe in Ivan, and I hope so too for a meeting with Roddick, I hope he'll kick his ass, that guy annoys me like hell :rolleyes:

Aww but Ivan is NOT ordinary looking :eek: I think he is one of the most handsome, attractive men on the tour (and I get bagged for saying it continuously :p). Of course, that is not my main reason for liking him, but it sure helps!! :hearts:

The other day I was watching him practice and one of the heavy tournament umbrellas came down on a lady's head. Ivan stopped practice to see if she was ok and got her one of his towels and his water bottle. It was just so lovely.

Also later I was standing trying to get a photo with him and my friend couldn't get my camera to work so I told Ivan not to worry. So he went and signed some more autographs... then before leaving he turned back to see if we were ready for the photo. My friend managed to take one with his camera so I got it :) I so expected him to walk off and was so pleased that he turned back to me :yeah:
