Hope Saki wins. I have no hopes for RamK. All the best to both of them.

Not grass. It has been raining all week in Nottingham and is going to be until the end of the tournament. The matches are played indoors (hard court).

Yes, looks like that way. RamK's second round match later today. Saketh's R2 match seems to have been postponed to tomorrow.
