Looks good, I can definitely see Brands defeating Harrison. I'll be pulling for Kudla big time.

Saville
Duckworth

Kravchuck (maybe. didn't expect either here tbh)
Jaziri
Sugita
Kudla
Dancevic
Herbert
Fucsovics
Groth
Berankis
Ram
Harrison (it's 3/5. Think Brands wins in 3 or not at all with his current fitness. Still very unsure here)

I would like to see Bedene, Herbert, Fucsovics, Bolelli, Pavic, Brands and Duckworth qualify. I'm not fussed about the others. Brands v Harrison could be the closest match of the day.

Hope Groth makes it to MD, could be interresting if he gets someone unseeded to finally do something like round or two, but Bolleli is just to consistent player - from baseline, so he need to serve really great and win this in tie-breaks. Another guys i hope wins are Muller and Ram, Duckworth was great vs Berdych so i guess he will win too. Also hoping for Pavic, Herbert and DAncevic to be in MD

How healthy is Brands at the moment? I'm thinking Harrison takes that to be honest. Groth vs Bolelli could be interesting.
Agree with Groth-Bolelli, He stopped him in RG qualification also last round if i remember pretty easily, of course on grass it should be much closer, but the difference is while Bolelli might be favorit in this match he won ´t do much in MD, while Groth with good draw can make something, maybe even upset someone from top 50

Ilhan beat Olivetti (highest unseeded player) and Androic without dropping a set. Jaziri lost sets to both Sorensen and Millot.

Based on their current forms, Jaziri beating Ilhan would be super schocking, at least for me. And hopefully not.

Didn't really look at this info. Still, I could see Jaziri taking a set.

nothing would shock me with marsel anymore. true that he seems to be in great form right now but he's had trouble finishing qualifying campaigns off before. i just hope its not another trademark ilhan loss.

Yeah, but you had Olivetti :p As huge as that guy's serve is, it's basically a guy who replaced his arms with cannons playing. Great serve, absolutely nothing backing it.
Gicquel was a great call though. Didn't think he'd even win a round with the year he's had. And fuckin' Dustov. Of course, I bet on Dustov and Bachinger both today :help:

I feel like the Kravchuk-Bolt section should just be thrown out. Who the hell predicted that? Though, oddly enough, I dreamed about watching Kravchuk qualify the night they started. This is despite never once having seen him play. In my dream he looked like Istomin with black hair, which was slightly off.

Agreed, it was an odd pick. I thought that qualy players wouldn't be able to handle his serve on grass + I had thought he qualified for Halle (turns out he was an LL), but yeah, bad pick.

To be fair, Gicquel had a very kind draw. Doubt he wins tomorrow, though.

That's quite the odd dream :lol: If we're going to throw out that section, we might as well do the same for the first one. :p
