Re: WTF Groups

Wrote this elsewhere but thought i'd share it:

Here's my commentary of the draw:

12:30 - Thought i'd post on here as i'm listening to it live on the radio. It's being aired in the middle of a newsy discussion type show, been listening for 10 minutes and they've not even mentioned it yet.

12:32 - Still waiting, they're talking about midwives!

12:34 - They've just crossed over to UK parliament to hear someone answering some parliamentary question or something. Normally i'm into politics, but now i'm just getting annoyed because I want tennis.

12:35 - Presenter now explaining the implications of the answer to said question.

12:36 - Now they're back to parliament.

12:37 - So I checked twitter:

12:39 - Still no sign of the draw. Things hotting up in parliament though. Now going to the news, still no mention of the draw.

12:42 - Sports man says the draw is imminent

12:43 - Shelagh Fogarty, presenting the radio show, takes the opportunity to read out some more texts and tweets about midwives before going over to what she refers to as "that tennis draw".

12:44 - Finally over to Jonathan Overend, the excellent BBC Tennis correspondent. He speaks with such passion, only thirty seconds in and you can sense his excitement about the upcoming tournament.

12:45 - All players apparently fit and raring to go. Djokovic apparently already in London. Now playing a clip from Federer, who says everybody can beat everybody. He points to the del Potro vs Davydenko final to justify his claim.

12:51 - Apparently there's to be over 250,000 spectators at this event!

(the draw happened too quickly for me to be able to write about it as it happened)

Re: WTF Groups

I doubt Fish will turn up. If he does he will be the weeping boy for sure. If he is not 100% he might as well not turn up.

Re: WTF Groups

Cakewalk groups for both Fed and Mugray...Faker will probably retire the moment he gets his ass kicked by a first opponent

The only way he can get something out of this WTF is hoping to catch a rusty Nadal in the first match otherwise i don`t see him winning any match,maybe a set vs Tsonga

Re: WTF Groups

Any idea when the match schedule is released?

I was deliberating on whether to go on Tuesday or Wednesday evening, and chose Wednesday. No doubt Tuesday will be Djoko v Murray whilst I get a Nadal v Fish blowout.

Re: WTF Groups

Works for me, hope Fish can play. Having Tipsarevic here would be.

BTW: Federer Nadull, and Djokovic - Murray are going to be the last matches to be played, right?

Roger Federer | Benoît Paire| Stanislas Wawrinka | Nick Kyrgios

Nope.Nadal will start with Fish and Federer with Tsonga.The winners and losers of the first matches will play second.So only way for Federer and Nadal to play last is if one of them wins and the other loses the first match
