You can't rig certain players on to a certain side of the draw, there would be mass uproar. In the scheme of things the French Open don't care about about any of the players in Brussels, it's not like any of them are a great draw in Paris. They didn't help Gasquet a couple of years ago when he won Nice and then drew Murray in R1 to play on Monday, there is no chance they help anyone in Brussels.
