Petzschner won his 4th doubles title this year and improved to a career highest rank 148 in doubles.
Waske, Schuettler (and Popp?) have Wildcards for Halle. Maybe Schuettler can give his back, but I don't think they would give the WC to Petzschner.
Grass court tennis starts on Saturday, I hope he will participate.
The most difficult match for him should be Elseneer, a total grasscourt specialist like he's written in the books. Not sure if he is going to make it through...

Maybe they gave Ferrero a WC this time because the tournament was afraid of getting another telling off of the Ferrero fans here in the forums as they complained because all WCs went to German non-hopers instead of giving one to Ferrero in Hamburg
