US Open Draw!!

26 Aug

Ok so the draw is out and what a surprise my four Spaniards are in the same half of the draw, the same quarter actually. Typical! So the first round oppenents looks like this, Rafa has drawn Russian, Teymuraz Gabashvili. Fernando Verdasco has drawn Itallian, Fabio Fognini. David Ferrer has drawn Ukranian, Alexandr Dolgopolov and Feliciano Lopez has drawn Columbian, Santiago Giraldo. The other Spaniards in this half of the draw are Pere Riba, Marcel Granollers, Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, Nico Almagro and Tommy Robredo. Other players to look out for are Andy Murray, David Nalbandian and Ernest Gulbis.

In the other half Juan Carlos Ferrero has drawn a qualifier and Albert Montanes has drawn Michal Przysiezny (i won’t be attempting to pronounce that after a few glasses of wine). Others to look out for in this half include Roger Federer, Robin Soderling, Nikolay Davydenko and home favourite Andy Roddick.

Now all that’s left to say is good luck boys! I’m off to make sure my spectators first aid kit* is ready for Monday.

*kit includes, glass of white/red, crisps/ice cream, a fan, stress ball/pen to tap and most importantly lucky t-shirt/flag/pants etc.
