Tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday all 32 seeded players will play unseeded players, n Wonder how many seeded players will survive and go through to Round 3?
So far today there would be 14 match es in the bottom half of the draw played today. Sinner and Medvedev will only play tomorrow
I was right in mentioning the survival the seeds survviing to go through to Round 3. After 14 of the 16 Bottom Half of the matches were played -
* 7 seeded players; and
* 7 unseeded players
won their matches.
Amongst the 7 match complted were the two outstanding matches from the Bottom of the Draw, Both were won by seeded players so the count for the that part of the draw were completed and won by seeded players so as to the Btttom Half the Draw was as follows:-
Won by seeded players - 9 matches
Won by unseeded players - 7 matches
A s to the top Half of the Draw only 6 matches has been completed and 5 of those were won by seeded players. Rain played havoc with the rest of the matches and only the covered roof courts could be played.
With 1 seed still to play there are the following situation:-
Won by seeded players - 19
Won by unseeded players - 13
Big upset - Medevedev lost agaiinst Korda.- not suprised hough Medvedev was very iffy in his Round 2 match. Tsitsipas also a gon er in Round 3,
On completion of Round 3 of the seeded layers the following numbers are left:-
Seeded 1 to 10 4 Players
Seeded 11 to 20 5 Players
Seeded 21 to 32 3 Players
Not very good of the Top 10 seeded players
The 4 Bottom Half of the Draw Round 4 matches has been layed and both Sinner and Ruud have both been eliminated.
So going into the Quarterfinals:\the situation is as follows with 1 Borrom Half of the draw match and al anbd all :=
Seeded 1 to 10 1 Players
Seeded 11 to 20 1 Players
Not what one expect from an A PT 1000 Masters tournament. Rublev is the last and only top ten player going into the quarterfinals where he is meting Humbert - who beat him in the last match they met. , .
