The singles and doubles draws are out for Stuttgart. Rafa will be playing in both events.
In singles, Rafa’s first match will be against the winner of one between Rosol and Baghdatis. Seeds in his half are Tomic, Monfils and Kohlschreiber. Also in his half is wildcard recipient Tommy Haas – who’s trying to make a comeback after a long time out with injury. Seeds in the other half are Troicki, F. Lopez, Theim and Cilic. (Personally, I’m happy to see those big servers in the other half.)
Rafa’s teaming up with Feliciano Lopez for doubles. Their first match will be against Haas and Stepanek. If they make it through that, they could possibly face the Bryan brothers in round two.
