Quite an amazing draw for Sousa here until QFs.

Chance for a Sela - Jaziri encounter in the second. I wonder if this time the Tunisian authorities would allow Jaziri to play against an Israeli.

Why am I not surprised? I wonder what excuse he will come up with this time...

And let me make it clear, I can't blame him personally. He is, as the Americans say, between a rock and a hard place. But his association must be sanctioned. Unfortunately, the ATP has no authority over national associations.
When Jaziri refused to play against Weintraub in Tashkent, the ATP cleared him of any wrongdoing, but passed the information to the ITF to take action against the Tunisian Tennis Association. They did nothing, to the best of my knowledge. Hard to believe this time will be any different.

Anyway, maybe Jaziri should borrow Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi's balls.

Ain't karma a bitch? Look what happened in the doubles.
Jonathan Erlich and Frantisek Cermak won their first round game, and were set to play the second round against Marc Lopez and... guess who?
of course, Jaziri suddenly developed an "elbow injury" and walked out. I wonder what Marc Lopez has to say about that.

They banned Tunisia from DC this year, so they didn't "do nothing"... And if you're not trying to blame Jaziri individually, then stop wording everything to make it seem like he's the criminal.

I was not aware of their being banned from DC. So I take that back, good job by the ITF. I hope they would do it again this time.
And actually I clearly said that I can't blame him of being personally political on this, but I think he's a coward. Like I said, he should borrow some balls from Qureshi.

8 minutes, 14 points and a quick game...

By the way, Jaziri is feeling better as he is going to play in Memphis
