Queens 2010 Draw out

Although there is still one match still to play at roland garos, the attention slightly turns as the grass court season begins in a couple of days. The draw for queens has been released today with a few familiar and a few new names.

Starting at the top, 2008 champion Rafael Nadal begins his campaign against either Brazilian Marcos Daniel (H2H 1-0) or Slovenian Blaz Kavcic. Nadals next opponent could be Wild card Jamie baker who faces Dennis istomin in the first round. Nadal`s other possible third round opponent is either Jamaican Dustin brown or a qualifier. In the quarter finals he could come up against tricky opponents such as feliciano lopez, Julien Benneateau or Arnaud clement.

In the second quarter of the draw, defending champion Andy Murray has a fairly straight forward draw. He begins against either Crazy Dani koeller or veteran Spaniard Ivan Navarro. His third round opponent is most likely Mardy fish though he beat Fish at the same stage last year. Murray is seeded to face Marin Cilic in the quarter finals who also has a straight forward draw.

In the second half of the draw, 2nd seed and 2008 finalist Novak Djokovic begins against either lowly ranked paolo lorenzi or pere riba. Potential third round opponents are Bernard tomic, Seppi or 2002 Wimbledon semi finalist Xavier malisse. Quarter final opponents for nole include Querrey, ginepri or tipsarevic.

4 time champ And roddick starts against ilya marchenko or igor kunitsyn. Afterwards he could come up against gilles muller or dudi sela with potential quarter finalist being monfils and Gasquet.
