    I don't know why but many S&V ( which are automatically real players) or real tennis players happened in the same quarter of the draw. It is not good at all, it means we'll miss all of them except Fed soon. Just look:

    Santoro - genius tennis player
    Federer - genius tennis player
    Gasquet - real tennis player
    Henman - S&V
    Haas - real tennis player
    Berdych - not a bad real tennis player
    Ancic - S&V
    Robredo - real tennis player
    Almagro - hitter
    Monfils - hitter
    Srichaphan - hitter
    Youzhny - hitter
    Djokovic - no opinion.

    And all of them in the same quarter, among 32 ? What do organizers do? Soon W will be over before the final.

    If you judge only by the final result then Wimby is already over!;)

    Though I agree that the draw is terrible.

    Yep, shame Ancic is in the same quarter as fed, would have liked that to be the final

    Wouldnt call Henman a serve & volleyer any more though! He said you cant win playing it any more and barely approached the net against soderling today

    What the hell is a real tennis player, and what does hitter mean? I've never heard these terms before.

    good question...looking at the players and their game my guess is:

    "real tennis player" = all around (all-court) player - though Robredo doesn't fit in ....

    "hitter" = mainly baseliner with powerful groundstrokes (e.g. Gonzales)

    but I might be wrong, you never know what Aykhan thinks ;)

    Fans get great early round matches and espn still gets their token american matches. By the time the qf rolls around they should have a full house. Us real tennis fans can see high quality early round matches, groupies will get to see roddick and agassi. Works on both sides, it isnt really fair, but its professional sports.
