While visions of grand slams danced in their heads
Navratilova was quiet, Mcenroe so too,
All were prepared to begin the season anew

When out on the courts, there arose such a clatter,
From a "top" player pushing, his points getting fatter
This high-end vulture exited Doha in a flash
But, alas! He swooped down on Auckland in a dash

This little old pusher, so lively and quick
I knew for a moment, it's that mug named Pics
More rapid than eagles, his vulturing came,
He whistled,and shouted "vamos" after only one game!

Like dry leaves this vulture would fly
If he met any real obstacle, he'd merely mount to the sky
On to the next weak draw, this vulture mug-flew
To find the next prey whom he could push through

Keep up the fight sir David



World #1.
.

Some people mistake the Distant Sun for an eternally raging fireball calling for your demise. Just like aliens from outer space. Aliens from other planets. Aliens in galaxies too far away from your own comprehension. Your demise is ultimately irrelevant and meaningless.

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

Well if he go far in Doha (and he should, at least a final appereance), he better withdraw from Auckland. I personally didnīt expect him to sign in Auckland and it isnīt a sure thing he will play there.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Yeah right

The Vulture is relentless, he will play both tournaments and then some.

what's new is playing Doha, but as I said with Fed and Tsonga not coming and no other top-player available, Doha organizers probably made a big offer to get a top-player.

I don't think fitness is a problem so early in the season after 1 months and a half without tournaments.

But it might be a problem later : might play Davis cup in Canada, then he's entered Buenos-Aires and Acapulco like last year then Indian Wells and Miami and then MonteCarlo-Barcelona-Madrid-Roma ... it might be a problem later than the Australian open, David is not young and he has to take care of injuries as well.

PS : this thread didn't appear on my board at one moment this afternoon, nice to see it's back I'm fed-up with the "X player forum", here I think it's interesting to speak of that packed beginning of the year with a lot of competition to attract top-players.

useless old guy

Definetely not a reasonable thing to do before a two-week Grand Slam. Especially if you're No.5 in the world.

Anyway, we don't call him Vulture for no reason though.
Just from memory:

Djokovic #3, 2009, played Brisbane and Sydney (late wild card for Sydney).
Hewitt, #4 2006, played Adelaide and Sydney.
Moya, #5, 2005, Won Chennai, 1st round loss Sydney (also played both in 2004 when #7).
Hewitt, #3, 2005, played Adelaide and won Sydney (also played both in 2001 when #7).

whereas the swiss keeps pounding tennis all over south america for money (mind i don't say it's a bad thing, djokovic also plays ridiculous exhibitions) - so no wonder they have no energy to play in doha and in auckland

Re: David Ferrer Is Playing In Both Doha & Auckland In 2013

haha you kind of have to love David's worth ethic, the guy is like the energizer bunny, he never stops. can anyone name a match they remember where David Ferrer was noticably tired or slow? don't think 2 pre major tournaments will hurt him at all at AO, he's fresh every day

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Re: David Ferrer Is Playing In Both Doha & Auckland In 2013

Ferrer is one cunning vulture, he knows how to pick his fights.
- "Doha weak draw? Only "coming from injury" Nadal there? I'm on it! Perfect opportunity to destroy Rafa just before I overtake him in the rankings and justify my new highest ranked spanish title."

You think the majority of the other pros don't have a great work ethic?

Did you just suggest that Chennai has a stronger field than Doha?
