His quarter:

(8) Andy Roddick (USA) vs Fabrice Santoro (FRA)
Ernests Gulbis (LAT) vs Thomas Johansson (SWE)
Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ESP) vs Dominik Hrbaty (SVK)
Hyung-Taik Lee (KOR) vs (31) Andreas Seppi (ITA)

(20) Nicolas Kiefer (GER) vs Ivo Minar (CZE)
(WC) Scoville Jenkins (USA) vs Jarkko Nieminen (FIN)
Bobby Reynolds (USA) vs QUALIFIER
Ivan Navarro (ESP) vs (11) Fernando Gonzalez (CHI)

(15) Tommy Robredo (ESP) vs Mischa Zverev (GER)
Vincent Spadea (USA) vs Marat Safin (RUS)
QUALIFIER vs Carlos Moya (ESP)
Santiago Ventura (ESP) vs (19) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA)

(30) Marin Cilic (CRO) vs Julien Benneteau (FRA)
Robby Ginepri (USA) vs (WC) Amer Delic (USA)
QUALIFIER vs Nicolas Mahut (FRA)
Arnaud Clement vs (3) Novak Djokovic (SRB)

The first match is a no brainer. I just hope that it won't take longer than necessary.
As for Nieminen, I can easily see a tough 4 or 5 setter. Normally, he should defeat him, though.

Gonzalez is possible, too. As usual, we'll have to hope for a bad Gonzo forehand day.
