Let’s see if Novak can trouble hurkacz. A third round match vs. Federer would be a career highlight, tough but not impossible

Gulbis gets FAA, while Gunneswaran enters as a Lucky Loser and draws Ito. That's disgusting, feel so bad for the Lord.
on his day ernie is more than capable of beating felix. crappy draw compared to Gunneswaran for sure but not impossible. keep in mind the courts at the australian open will be similar to what they had at the ATP cup and we saw how well felix did on them

Feels like that happens pretty much every tournament. Sure feels a bit unfair but not sure what would be the solution.

Safwat has been playing really well since last summer excluding a few tournaments. Second GS appearance for him - got into FO as a lucky loser in 2018.

Safwat surprised me by taking out Donskoy and then was really competitive against Barrere as well. Maybe he has made some progress :eek:

He sure has. Got many good wins on all kind of surfaces last year. Too bad he couldnt win his first challenger title - led the final against Trungelliti by a set and break. Had a poor one in Bratislava only to reach final in Helsinki the next week (both indoor hard).

Didnt see his match against Barrere but looks like he let it go. Led 2nd set 4-0 and had every chance to take the 4th. Too bad.
