Yes, according to the tournament's website: Men's Player Field | Citi Open

Wow, this is a very strong field for a 500. No top 5 players, but the four guys in the top 10 and five more guys in the top 20. Whoever scoops up Hamburg this week got a helluva windfall in terms of cash and points. Whoever wins DC will have earned his money & points the hard way.

Vasek got a bit down on himself during the match for a few misses, but really there was nothing he could do against Isner yesterday. Isner simply didn't put a foot wrong the entire match. First & foremost, he served great, and that alone makes it very tough for any opponent. Plus he returned well, hit both forehand and backhand strongly, and even served & volleyed a few times. Even if Vasek had played a perfect match, the best he could have done would have been to get to a tiebreak in each set, and winning a tiebreak against an "on" servebot is a crapshoot at best.

No way Vasek was beating Isner in "god's country"

Vasek has a really good draw, and should he get past Thiem he'll have a good chance to reach at least R16.

Well, if Vasek had to draw a top 8 seed in 1R, I'd rather it be Thiem than anyone else. If Vasek gets past Thiem, his section of the draw (players #97-112) isn't particularly tough. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Brad1973 Pretty good numbers from Vasek against Djokovic. One ace per game, only two lost service games in the match and he won a third of return of serve points.

Re: Vasek Pospisil

I only caught the second set, but I thought Vasek actually held his ground pretty well in the back court rallies. He got into trouble when he approached on balls that weren't quite short or weak enough to come in behind. Despite all of Novak's woes over the last 12 months, he still has a helluva passing shot. It's nice to see that Vasek hung on 'til the very end. He hit a couple of great forehands in the last game, one a brilliant pass at full stretch. Oh well, beating even a struggling Novak was going to be tough. On to Wimbledon! May the Gods of the Kind Draw smile on Vasek this Friday.

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Vasek lost in straight sets and didn't really trouble Nole too much.

Onto Wimbledon. Hopefully he gets a friendly draw!
