Must be a mistake, one of them has to be Christophe, not Olivier, I guess.

Because Roddick is ranked higher.

I guess it has to be due to the last minute withdrawal of Nadal, and Rochus happens to be in the Next-In list. Someone will replace Rochus in the qualifying draw as an alternate.

Is Roger not playing???

Deboogle!.
04-17-2004, 02:51 PM
no he's not. There's a big thread in General Messages about it. He didn't play last year either. Andy shouldn't be playing either for that matter, but with his draw it won't matter too much:)

:confused:
what do u mean ??

nothing wrong with draw

only 16 seeds
top 2 placed top/bottom
3/4 drawn at random in each half

seeds 5-8 drawn at.... 2 in each half to play seeds 1-4 in QF
seeds 9-12 drawn, to play seeds 5-8 in rd3
seeds 13-16 drawn to play seeds 1-4 in rd3

rest are placed anywhere by luck of draw

But in Aus open,
2 and 3 were in same half
in this draw they're not :confused:

3 and 4 are drawn randomly. The first one drawn gets placed in the top half, and the other in the bottom half. All tournaments do it this way.

You can read the ATP rulebook to know how the seeds are placed, if you're really interested....there are several pages on it :)

Not drawing O. Rochus again............ :mad:
Let's hope Marat will have enough rest after this week and maintain his form to play a good 1st round match.....

Some 1st round seeds upsets I predict:

11Schalken, Sjeng
8Grosjean, Sebastien
15Fish, Mardy
6Henman, Tim
4Schuettler, Rainer
10Srichaphan, Paradorn

Lots of interesting and tough 1st round matches:

Rochus, Olivier vs. Safin, Marat
Clement, Arnaud vs. Grosjean, Sebastien
Costa, Albert vs. Mantilla, Felix
Gaudio, Gaston vs. Volandri, Filippo
Malisse, Xavier vs. Haas, Tommy
Ljubicic, Ivan vs. Robredo, Tommy

Nadal is injured.

Come on Gaston beat Volandri, there is a chance for a good result here.
Costa v Mantilla, hopefully Felix doesn't have any more problems with his achilles.
Corretja, it's going to be hard man especially after JCF got schooled in Valencia. I have a feeling this could get ugly for Alex.
I just hope Nalbandian can complete the match against Hrbaty.

Hi All, does anyone have some info on how Coria is feeling these days? I know he wasnt able to play Davis Cup, and his injury was not healed as of a few weeks ago, but are things better now?

Even though Ferrero beat him in the finals last year, Ferrero I dont believe is the best clay courter in the world right now, a healthy Coria is. Hopefully he is at full health here...as Enqvist hasnt a prayer tommorrow if he is.
