My humble opinion about each section:

Moodie section: #1 is in pretty good shape, especially considering Wimby. I don't think he will face serious opposition in qualifying.
Qualifyer: Wesley Moodie.


Soderling section: There are some names that could make life difficult for Robin, like Brzezicki (runner-up in a challenger a few weeks ago), Galvani and young Lapentti. I go with -
Qualifyer: Giovanni Lapentti.

Browne section: Don't know much about #3, but I have a feeling the qualifyer will come from the Roitman vs. Larkham match (two of my favs :( ).
Qualifyer: Todd Larkham.

Thomann section: Nico is in good shape. I think opposition will come from Benneteau and Pescosolido.
Qialfyer: Nicholas Thomann.

Karlovic section: As the potato and all Croations on borad can testify, Ivo is in great shape. I think Bachelot can give him a hard time and hope very much for Dudi Sela too...
Qualifyer: Ivo Karlovic.

Norman section: Haven't seen much of Norman since Wimby and his great run in Queens. Interesting match there between Baghdatis and Tipsarevic.
Qualifyer: Hmmmm, Tipsarevic.

Mahut section: Mahut should be able to qualify from here. Kunitsyn is in a slump, so is Hadad and Italians have been waiting for Starace to breakthough for quite some time.
Qualifyer: Nicolas Mahut

Ascione section (Lots of French seeded in qualifyers): I actually would be surpised to see #8 win in the first round. Dancevic can be quite dangerous. Same goes with Rajeev Ram and Vacek.
Qualifyer: Rajeev Ram (wild wild bet).

Berdych section: Interesting match for him in 1st round, altough he's in great shape (won challenger or was a runner-up last week). Kwon can be good but will probably be too excited. I actually think the qualifyer will be the experienced
Qualifyer: Tomas Zib

Verdasco section: Well, Verdasco is in really good shape, after winning nice matches in Long Island and other places. All other possible candidates in his section (Sa, Bastl and Jeff) are in some slump. This is quite a obvious one, then.
Qualifyer: Fernando Verdasco.

Waske section: Andrew Ilie trys anothe comeback, Noam Okun is in good shape but the not-so-obvious choice goes to
Qualifyer: Thomas Enqvist. (Enqvist #26 in qualifying :( )

Van Scheppingen section: I actually think Gilles Muller will finally make some noise here. Look out for Iwabuchi too. Still the Dutchman should prevail.
Qualifyer: Dennis van Scheppingen

Galimberti section: IMO winner of the match between him and Andy Ram will go all the way.
Qualifyer: Andy Ram :)

Rosset section: Veteran Marc shouldn't have a problem vs. Kim. Gamonal or Levy could prove more difficult.
Qualifyer: Hmmm, Levy? :angel:

Mamiit section: Tough section to predict there. Mamiit is doing not bad lately but so is Joachim. I think Elseneer will still be the last one standing.
Qualifyer: Gilles Elseneer

Heuberger section: The last section is of high quality. Ivo did well in Wimby and so did Suzuki. Delgado has been very quiet.
Qualifyer: Ivo Heuberger.

Time to see where was I right and where not at all :p :

Moodie section: Got that one right, Moodie qualifyed. Wasn't a wild guess there. :)

Soderling section: Kudos to Robin for qualifying. Didn't think he'll make it. :(

Browne section: Ouch - who would have thought Abel could pull through such a performance? :(

Thomann section: I said Thomann, but also said Benneteau will be dangerous. Benneteau prevailed. :(

Karlovic section: Ivo (and me) got that one big time. Nice run for Dudi Sela, though. :)

Norman section: Woohooo, I said Tipsarevic and we got Tipsarevic, even if had to work hard vs. Baghaditis. :)

Mahut section: Mahut got that one and so did I. :)

Ascione section: I though in a wild guess - Rajeev Ram but Vacek was the chosen one. :(

Berdych section: Pleasant disappointment here from Roko Karanusic. Bad miss by me :( . Berdych got a LL.

Verdasco section: Verdasco blew that one away (but got a LL). Didn't think Salzenstein in a good shape :(

Waske section: Of course, Enquist won that one and even got a good draw in MD. :)

Van Scheppingen section: pffff, bad bad miss. Tursanov caught me by surprise (I thought Muller). :(

Galimberti section: I said the winner of his match vs. Andy Ram will qualify and was right. Andy almost won but Galimberti came through. :(

Rosset section: Kohlschreiber ? Who is Kohlschreiber ?. I said Levy - bitter disappointment. :(

Mamiit section: I said it will be tough and thought Elseneer will get it, but Joachim showed good signs and won 3 tough matches. Happy for him, unhappy for me. :(

Heuberger section: Blew that one too. Delgado's experience paid off at the end (I said Ivo). :(

-------------------------
The bottom line - 11 misses, 5 hits and 1 miss that got a LL.

....
-------------------------
The bottom line - 11 misses, 5 hits and 1 miss that got a LL.

Not a bad job at all...men's tennis is difficult to predict in most cases, and this qualifying draw was almost impossible to prognosticate.:)

I'm glad to see Verdasco get a ll, but I was shocked by how easily he apparently lost the match against Salzenstein. I hope it was just a bad day or whatever...

Vacek *sighs* That could have been you Frank Dancevic...:( Up a break twice in that second set...
