He has a decent draw, his first two rounds are not worrying and his third round is not that bad either. I don't think either Kiefer or JC have the weapons to hurt a fit Dave...fit being the keyword here. But a Nalby/Ferrero match in the third round sucks for me personally. I don't want either of them to leave the tourney at that early stage.
In the end, I just hope he will play. He could still withdraw.
not a bad draw compared to many other players...hopefully as you say he'll get some match practice in the first 2 "easy" matches and get fitter before he meets someone like ferrero or ferrer
that of course if he played!!
