Can some1 tell me why Canas and Schuettler pulled out? What happened to them? I know Canas has some kind of injury...what about Schuettler?

02-16-2003, 11:32 AM
If those two entered as well...the draw would have been friggin' tough...even tougher

Bloody Hell!!! What a damn crap draw!! :fiery:

Zhenya & Marat both have tough openers.... and if they pull out with the wins.... they'll have to face each other in the 2nd round.... #!$#@%&^@$# :fiery: :mad:

Juanqui's draw is ok, but not easy... a possible 2nd round matchup with the on-fire Jonas!! :o

02-16-2003, 03:20 PM
mario got the easiest of the four opponents cause mirnyi is out of form, he could play ivan in round 2 tho

02-16-2003, 03:28 PM

Well to say the least, that is a remarkable draw... Verkerk v Sluiter will no doubt be a big featured match considering that it's an all-Dutch affair.

Federer coming off a win has got a very bad draw in the form of Enqvist; he may still be hampered by injuries, but he's got a very good unbeaten record against Roger.

And Tim - Ljubicic in the first round! Well, he beat him last year in the semis in straight sets without having to play a tiebreak, so more of the same please!

02-16-2003, 06:50 PM
wow, what a draw indeed!

i feel like saying good luck to everyone....

Good luck to everyone :D

Bad draw for Xavier! (he always seems to have bad draws :( And why do the Belgians always have to play Marat?!!! )

Good luck Christophe, Olivier and Xavier in singles :D :bounce: :D
And Tom/Xavier in doubles! :)

I'm in the minority here, but it's nice to see Tim is getting back into the swing of things. Hopefully he can pick up a win or two, but the draw certaintly did him no favours.

I'm not sure how fond I am of Ferrero potentially playing Jonas in round 2. Somebody must have tipped Jonas off that his ranking was going into the shitter because he's been playing like Superman lately.

Kafelnikov-Safin in round two is still somewhat interesting, though not as much as it used to be.

Just about everybody that I like wound up in the top half. Charming!

02-17-2003, 03:39 AM
This draw sucks :mad: :(

Go Marat! :D :)

02-17-2003, 06:56 AM
The draw is pretty interesting...not that I love it!:fiery:
But anyway, Goodluck MARAT!

02-17-2003, 07:30 AM
LOL @ ferrerobredo!!! good luck to SEB, Ferrero and Escude

Roger Federer

02-17-2003, 10:42 AM
Good luck to Federer....he needs it more than any1...considering that Enquist beat him the last 3 times they met.. (I think)...
C'mon Federer!!!!! Just becos u won in Marseille u can't be complacent...u have to pick up ur ranking points if u want to be #1
