One correction in the draw -

(4)Massimo Dell'Acqua (SUI) vs Rohan Bopanna (IND)

That should be
(4) George Bastl (SUI) vs Rohan Bopanna (IND)

I think Steve G made a typing error there..

(2)Nicolas Mahut (FRA) d. (6)Joseph Sirianni (AUS) 6-4 7-5

Andrew's run ends. Impressive work by the 16 yr old. The interesting thing is that most of his big junior results have all been on clay (which itself is rather unusual for a British kid, I suppose). This kid is the real thing and with that kind of all court skills, he is goibg to go places!
