Re: Miami 2009

I think this is a pretty good draw. It looks likely that a rematch against Troicki will be on the cards. I hope there isn't any kind of mental hangover from Indian Wells, and that he lives up to his seeding (not necessarily two connected thoughts).

Re: Miami 2009

Really easy indeed...David leads 7/0 vs Gasquet and 2/0 vs Murray...so I guess he can make it...but one never knows with Nalby..

Re: Miami 2009

Yeah, it is a nice draw on paper, but when it comes to David it is not like any draw has any significant meaning.

Re: Miami 2009

I'm not surprised. If he could pull off Madrid 2007, he can potentially win Miami even with this draw.

Re: Miami 2009

I don't think he choked. A little bit of bad luck and some smart serving from Nadal kept the match alive long enough for David to run out of gas.
I hope he's fit for 3 setters this week.

Re: Miami 2009

David's second round match against Troicki is scheduled up first on Grandstand, a guaranteed televised court which is a pleasant surprise. They only have two televised courts in Miami (as opposed to three in Indian Wells) and they put Fish and Querrey on Court 1.

Re: Miami 2009

Yep. Both on Channelsurfing and atdhe.net. And the betting sites (Bet365, Betfair) and tennis.tv.
All because David is playing on Grandstand. A pleasant surprise, indeed.

Re: Miami 2009

Hi all,
Every TV is showing Verdasco-Becker except for Serbian national television. At least I am going to watch it on TV, despite that sometimes their commentators can be quite biased.
