Michael Russell [USA, 6] vs. Lars Burgsmüller [GER]
Harel Levy [ISR] vs. Leonardo Mayer [ARG]
Rogerio Dutra Silva [BRA] vs. Paul Baccanello [AUS]
Stéphane Bohli [SUI] vs. Jean-Christophe Faurel [FRA, 31]
I hope and think he should get through the first 2 rounds but the last one probably against russell (keeping in mind his last run to the challenger title in noumea) makes me think I won't get to watch steph on tv next week!
since the australian open, steph had lost ervery singles match he played, in durban, davis cup (2 matchs), besançon and cherbourg qualies and dropped to ATP 284. But he has just reached the semis of the kyoto challenger (25'000 DS) and lost only 7-6(5) in the 3 rd set against suzuki. Apparently, steph is again on the right track.
Next week he'll play the ho chi minh city challenger (50'000 DS) in vietnam. I hope he'll do well again there!
