Devvarman's got Niemugnen, who's been shit lately, so he's in for a chance.

Yes, he got an ITF Place is the right term.

Sorry for seeming clueless but I looked at the first round matches listed up in the tournament section of this forum but I can't see anywhere where the players ate listed into quarters or who's exactly in which half of the draw etc etc.

Where can I get a link to this?


Thanks

Devvarman-Nieminen doesn't look good indeed,

but Lacko vs a doubles player (Cabal ?) will probably look worse, as Karlovic is out and will be replaced by a doubles player.

why on earth did they choose him ?

because there are too few Asian players, and India is a huge country with few good sportsmen.

Federer-Falla for sure

Why is Lu-Jaziri bad match?
Lu is decent grass court player and he sometimes plays against higher rank opponents.

the argies got it difficult.
Nalbandian and Tipsa?
Monaco and Goffin?
Del potro and Dodig?
Man I'm not sure, I hope Delpo can handle Dodig on grass. I can't trust Delpo on grass unfortunately

As far as I know, it should be Lacko - Petzschner

Given they're both ITF's Hewitt/Stako doesn't look so good.

Sharkko - DevilMan will be a horror indeed, but Ungur - Muller has to be the runner up in this ranking. Looks like a nightmare as well.

Then -
Stepanek - Davydenko
Seppi - Young
Ito - Raonic
Djokovic - Fognini


...all matches i would zap out to watch top shop instead :confused:

Kavcic - Vardhan after Kohli's withdrawal.. guess Nieminen - Devvarman doesn't look so bad now :)
