TMC Houston draw is OUT!

I GOT THE DRAW!! I GOT THE DRAW!!!!!



RED GROUP
Federer
Hewitt
Moya
Gaudio

BLUE GROUP
Roddick
Safin
Coria
Henman

=====

I got sick of waiting for news on the web so I called them and they gave me the list.

Sorry, I didn't get the doubles draw.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: TMC Houston draw is OUT!

hmmm interesting draw indeed! Henman can certainly wualify from that! Hes avoided Hewitt which is important and I feel he can beat both Coria and Federer!

Poor Coria.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: TMC Houston draw is OUT!

wondering who Coria plays 1st ???
thats a big, big plus.
Coria might/probably retires and an alternate comes in.

Carlos at least do some peeling for once

Marat just qualify no time for oafing about.

Re: TMC Houston draw is OUT!

Re: TMC Houston draw is OUT!

The ATP has just now confirmed it.

You're welcome everyone.

Houston Draw Set

Defending champion Roger Federer will likely be happy with his round-robin group made today at Tennis Masters Cup Houston. Federer, who is on an 18-match winning streak against Top 10 players, has avoided Tim Henman, the only player against whom he has a troubling head-to-head record (3-6). Federer has been grouped with Carlos Moya (4-0), Gaston Gaudio (3-0) and Lleyton Hewitt (6-7). Despite trailing the Aussie in career meetings, Federer has won their four meetings this year.

Red Group: (1)Roger Federer, (3)Lleyton Hewitt, (5)Carlos Moya, (8)Gaston Gaudio.

Blue Group: (2)Andy Roddick, (4)Marat Safin, (6)Guillermo Coria, (7) Tim Henman.

Re: TMC Houston draw is OUT!

Thanks for that, not to bad draw for gaston actually!
He can trouble federer, and has done so before. I feel he can actually attack the federer backhand, one of the reasons he troubles federer. to be fair, federers backhand isnt as good as someone like gaudio.
Gaudio also has a winning record against hewitt, but all his wins have come on clay. so i feel gaston has a chance to beat hewitt.
Not to sure how he will match up against moya, but its a better matchup than if he was playing henman or roddick

there is no such thing as Tag tennis

or else just let Roddick serve and let him move away, bring on a better player on the ground.

Re: TMC Houston draw is OUT!

Awesome

If Coria withdraws, then the bottom half could become really tough (with Agassi replacing). Federer has it made in the top half --not that hewitt is a pushover, but Federer has had his number all year

I seriously think Gaudio has major chances of qualifying! If Federer and Moya arent 100% then the Argentine can take advantage...

Re: TMC Houston draw is OUT!

Agassi will only play 2 matches, and even if he goes 2-0
and the others in gp are both 2-1, Agassi will go out.
