I'm quite looking forward to the Portugal Open (provided I can find a live stream) where Ferrer is seeded No.1 and Wawrinka No.2, based on rankings as of 18 March, although it's a shame Delpo has had to withdraw due to a virus.
I'm pleased that Ferrer's accepted the wildcard - playing some more matches on the clay is probably a good idea ahead of the Masters and RG, where he's got big points to defend. Hope he and Stan reach the final - I enjoyed their Buenos Aires final earlier this year.
It might end up working in Delpo's favour not playing this week. He doesn't seem to be the type of player who fares well playing consecutive weeks. Resting this week may mean he's in better shape for the two Masters. It is a shame for him that he's had to miss out though.
yeah feel relay sorry for him

Rumors are, unfortunately, proved to be correct. Famous tennis player Ivo Karlovic (34) ended up in a hospital in Miami, the city where he and his wife and Alsion jednoipolgodišnjom daughter Jada Valentin and lives. Doctors are not the correct diagnosis, initially suspected to mild stroke, but it's more likely that an infection of the brain. To which, perhaps, there and bite of an insect.
- It is true, Ivo was in the hospital - confirmed by a visibly upset Ivin father Vlado, who himself lives in limbo because they do not know what it exactly is. He says:
Hopefully, it will send the giant, who was recently piled pehovi (injuries and unfortunate defeats), as soon recover. Will they be able to return and tennis, far too early to say. And it is at this point in the background, health is the most important. Otherwise, the last appearance Charles had last week at the challenger in nearby Sarasota (on the ground), where in the first round in three sets lost to Ukraine's Denis Molčanova.
Fans from all over the world through social networks leave messages of regret as "Giant from Salata" this happened and express his support.

Thanks for the further info on Ivo Karlovic, CoolDude. I never knew that insect bites could be so serious, that's scary. Hope he makes a speedy recovery and is able to play again.
That's a really interesting site bbh, thanks. So many different stats to look at. And I like the h2h tables - much easier to use than the ATP H2Hs which take ages to load!
