I don't understand why they have byes. You have a whole group of players slogging away week on week to get into these tournaments and then players get a bye. Why not increase the draw rather than make a mockery of a leading tournament?

The ATP wants to kill doubles. They don't want to encourage others to become doubles specialists, it's as simple as that.

Tough match for Divij but Aisam/JJ Rojer aren't regular partners and perhaps could be beatable. :goodluck:
