Dubai Draw

Murray-Djoko in same half. Djoko-Stebe first round. Murray plays qualifier. Fed plays Llodra.

Marko Djokovic in the draw & plays a qualifier - guess Nole got more than just an appearance fee...

Re: Dubai Draw

Ridiculous to give Marko Djokovic a WC

Del Potro-Dolgopolov, Youzhny-Gasquet and maybe Tsonga-Baghdatis should be good 1st round matches

Re: Dubai Draw

How can Dubai justify the Marko wildcard?! He's world no. 867 & has won one match at challenger level. It's disrespectful to other players on tour. It's one thing when national federations give WC to promising players in their own tournaments but to basically oblige the top player's request and take away the opportunity for someone more deserving to get a slot in an ATP 500 (not even a minor tournament!) is ridiculous....

Re: Dubai Draw

Having a brother who's world #1 and has appearance demand clout clearly has its compensations.

Look forward to seeing the full draw.

Re: Dubai Draw

Shame that Marko didn't draw Fed in the first round. Would have served the Djokovic family right to have Fed take apart junior Djokovic for trying to take shortcuts like this.

The WC does him no favours when his level is clearly so below 500 level.

Lucky Fed to avoid Murray again. Will be ever get a Fed-Murray match again?!! Will have to hope for a final here....

Re: Dubai Draw

Murray's draw is pretty hard after R1. Davydenko and then Berdych just to make the semi's.

The rematch of Tsonga vs Del Potro is sure to happen, no way should either lose to Dolgo or Baghdatis.

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

Re: Dubai Draw

Novak will get to the semi no-problem - then we can see what Murray can do. Murray may have trouble with Berdych though. Really hope we get to see Djokovic/Murray.

Fed will get to the QF easily - then it's up to Del Po or Tsonga to take advantage of it being an outdoor HC - Del Po at least should have a way better shot here than at Rotterdam.

Why they always put a Serb in Nole's quarter? Fkn rigged.
