Pretty bad list this. Low cut-off and no top 10 player. I thought Tsonga was like the anchorman for this tourney...

Predictable WCs.

Cut-off down to #138 already and likely to get much lower.

Chardy won't play according to the RMC website (right wrist).

:sad:

Such a weak tournament...

Is Newport usually around that or worse at the cut off?

At least this has top 20 players. I think Mardy Fish was around #40 and a 1 seeed in 2007 or 8

Is Monfils really going to play here? I wouldn't be surprised if he is a late withdrawal. Or if he tanks. And then Ferrer has been in bad form, Lopez is inconsistent and may not be motivated, and Jarkko is coming back from injuries. All the rest of the players are really beatable. I wouldn't be surprised to see a huge surprise winner.

Seeded players will be ranked outside the top 100. That is pretty brutal.

Newport generally has a worse top of the draw that what is here, but the depth is usually slightly better than this.

More or less a glorified challenger at this point... even Kevin Anderson isn't playing his home tournament.

Ram will lose in the first round anyway.

False

Filo V.

False

False maybe if he draws a player like Levy or Recouderc, or a qualifier (outside of ERV). Outside of that, yeah, he will lose first round. He simply isn't that good.
