Tommy Robredo ESP (21) v Bobby Reynolds USA
Alberto Martin ESP v Viktor Troicki SRB
Thomaz Bellucci BRA v Yen-Hsun Lu TPE
Marc Gicquel FRA v David Nalbandian ARG (10)
Tommy Robredo, then, is the first seed that David might face, with Andy Roddick and Philipp Kohlschreiber  in the adjoining sector. This appears to be a comfortable draw for David with no unpleasant surprises. And he might need an easy start if he continues to progress in the Sydney tournament, leaving him less time to practice in and acclimatize to Melbourne.
