I agree, but it also means one of them will walk away with an R1 loss. It's disappointing, but the draw is definitely available for the winner to make a nice run.

I want Simone to win that match. I hope Simon makes the finals from the top half, but he probably wont. I think Salamanca will beat Stakhovsky.

Probably Bachinger, maybe Golubev, will make the finals from the top half I assume. Hopefully it isn't Crapinger, though.

Good match from Struff but i was not impressed by Kavcic when you compare him to Roland Garros against Hewitt and Djokovic.
He was very weak on his serve and made few errors which would be dangerous to make against a better opponent. Will be a tough matchup against Frenchman De Veigy.
