Next week Richard will be in Vienna for the BA-CA Tennis Trophy.
The draw is of a very high standard as the race for the Masters Cup intensifies. Consequently Richard is unseeded.
In the first round he will face a qualifier.
Richard is in the bottom half of the draw, and if he progresses past round one, he will face either Andy Roddick or Jose Acasuso in the second round. Not an easy draw...
Qualifying takes place this weekend...so Richard's first round opponent will be determined Sunday night or Monday morning.
