I hope Seppi vs. Federer will be interesting

Re: AO: Best R1 matches?

Garcia-Lopez vs Calleri should be an epic battle with some chokes and comebacks

Re: AO: Best R1 matches?

In the first round I'd like to see these matches:

Murray - Pavel - always nice to see Pavel's backhand, I'm curious his disposition, especially that he hasn't played a match for a long time

Canas - Kiefer - two veterans, Canas' first match of the season, Kiefer's first as well in ATP; interesting section of the draw because the winner of this match plays with the winner of Hewitt-Gonzalez match, another worth to watch

Querrey - Kohlschreiber

Ferrero - Santoro

Tsonga - Monaco - ambitious Monaco would be a tricky 1st round opponent for Tsonga if the Frenchman is affected by an injury

Nadal's first two round are pathetic, Rochus and Serra will have problem to win 4 games in a set, Europort certainly shows both matches, completely waste of time

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Re: AO: Best R1 matches?

Rochus and Serra can decide to play against Nadal at the same time and they would still lose.

Lol, this draw kinda sucks. The WTA 1rs are better for the first time ever.

Re: AO: Best R1 matches?

I am already getting nervous and feeling my heart beating really fast about the Hewitt Gonzo match. I bet that will be a one intense 5 set thriller, provided they're both at their best. Lleyton will be inspired, and Gonzo would want to get the results that seem to have gone missing recently.

"If only I had an enemy bigger than my apathy, I could have won."

Hewitt - Gonzo.

Has night match epic written all over it.

After all this hype, Hewitt will probably win 6-2 6-4 6-2 or something like that!

yes... i agree... one of the bigger opening rounds in the AO recently...

Montanes vs Gulbis will probably be the ladies match just beforehand...

Re: AO: Best R1 matches?

Soderling-Kendrick - both bad guys with an aggresive game.

Also Stepanek-Lapentti (would like to see this one go the distance), Golubev-Fognini (battle of the renegated 1987s), Schwank-Haas...
