not good for Kiwi of course he immediately gets Henman again, won't help him knowing he got injured playing against him in his current situation, I guess... but anyway, the whole tournament is very strong!
at least no Federer in the 1st round
Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan
Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Tim hasn't got a bad draw but Kiefer round 1 is tough. He should hopefully get through to the QF and play Feli Lopez - that will be interesting. Tim v Roger semi would be nice Roger getting there is a given i think.
Joachim in the bottom half - the 15 other players are welcome to him
can ferrero notch up a win this week? he made the finals last year , losing close match with hewitt.
we will see...
Probably not but he has the chance to reach the QF and he may get the better of a knackered Johansson by then...but you have to question his ability. If Johansson goes, he could get to the final and have damage limitation to his ranking.
The winner of the top half will take the title unless Joachim is around on Sunday - if he is, it will be very interesting.
