It's not too bad for him. Tsonga & Murray both coming back off long injuries, Murray only very recently. It's not as bad as it could be. Could have Stan and then Rafa instead for example.
Poor Laura. If her wrist isn't bad enough, and I wish I could say it was in some way my fault, drawing Flipkens Round One is bad. She can win but this is one event she can get through a few rounds like last year against Kvitova. She needs ranking points to get back in the 32 and to push beyond. She won't do anything on clay and needs a good hard court season to set herself up. The injury and this draw won't help her. If she's good enough though it shouldn't stop her. She just seems too much of a confidence and momentum player.
Hewitt Seppi kooks good for R1 too. Tough match for Hewitt but hope he gets through. Far better having him in form, and especially in Melbourne. Tomic fucked though!
