WWW: AO R1 Schüttler vs Verdasco

Interesting 1st round match I think. Verdasco is in a slump and Schüttler is always dangerous at the AO (beat Querrey in R1 last year), maybe he has it in him for another good tournament in his probably last season. Going for the upset, Rainer in 5.

19.

Verdasco will probably scrape through this match in 4.

Re: WWW: AO R1 Schüttler vs Verdasco

Schuettler has a good chance here, considering how crap Verdasco is playing. Schuettler in 4, if he plays well and Verdasco continues his crap form.

Re: WWW: AO R1 Schüttler vs Verdasco

Either Schuettler will make it a close 4 or 5 setter but lose, or Verdasco will blow Schuettler out.

Verdasco in 3, even he can't cock this up. Although he has surprised me before.

Re: WWW: AO R1 Schüttler vs Verdasco

Verdasco is much younger and wants his deep runs to make his AO income.

I can't see him losing to an old buzzard.

Verdasco in 4 close sets.

Re: WWW: AO R1 Schüttler vs Verdasco

I would not be surprised one bit if Verdasco finds a way to screw this up. The open rounds of any tournament are not a GIVEN for him, especially at a slam.

There are times, rare moments, when the greatest of champions fall. Maybe because of a bad day or maybe there's pain within. One thing you can be sure of, is that all the great champions will bounce back again. It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. But one day, they'll be back again. And they'll be better than ever. Why??? Because that's what great champions do. They survive.

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

Re: WWW: AO R1 Schüttler vs Verdasco

Fernando played like shit leading up to the USO but really upped his game there, I expect more of the same here really.

Verdasco in 4.
