Pretty weak draw.

Oh, well, I guess I won't be going this year unless they announce an exho or something between, say, Sampras and Chang

He should take a picture of it and embrace the moment Also, look at Phau seeded Dream opponent for anyone coming off the qualies.

Hope Leo Mayer has a good tournament here, could've had an easier draw considering the quality of the entire field!

The number one seed is oh so low ranked, but the 8th seed (ranked 79 on drawsheet) and last direct entry (119 on drawsheet) aren't too bad. In 2009, Newport had a 90th ranked 8th seed and a 159 last direct acceptance.

Brian is a seed. EPIC.

Ernie

Seriously, this looks great - as long as Querrey doesn't win, brilliant.

I've seen Challengers with stronger draws

It's starts the week before but Olympics starts at Saturday.

The only thing I can think of is that Gulbis had a chance of making the Olympics if a player withdrew from a weak nation. On the ladies side, Kanepi from otherwise unrepresented Estonia withdrew so the ITF picked Duque-Marino over higher ranked players just because Colombia wasn't represented on the ladies side. Stakhovsky got an ITF pick and he was only two spots ahead of Gulbis at the deadline.

Since the only withdrawals on the men's side came from Spain and France, that possibility never came into play.

You must be right and Ernests was still holding out hope for the Olympics. I remember after he beat Murray in that exho before RG, he told the interviewer he would love to play in London but would need a wildcard. Looks like he was pretty damn close if Stakhovsky was given the spot. Disappointing...

Even without Ernests , this could still potentially be a fun tournament, though. Paire and Baker have a real shot at their first title and it would be a great final if they both make it that far, with Benoit seeking revenge after losing to Brian at Wimbledon.

Re: Farmers Classic, Los Angeles: Paire Seeded #1

Worst line-up I have ever seen for a 250. There have been Challengers with more depth than this tournament. At least 4 year ago you had guys like JMDP (who was on the rise) and Roddick competing at these events.
