Beck was really a relatively easy opponent on paper (there were many more difficult opponents in the draw), the problem is that in Rotterdam, he could run into somebody much better now, e.g. Federer.
I have the feeling that it will be very hard for him to get some wins in Rotterdam.
His schedule looks pretty busy from here on out for a number of weeks, so hopefully he'll pick up his game... and stop losing in the first round
Let's hope he gets a good draw in Rotterdam........
