Re: WWW Brisbane International 250

getting a big Raonic vibe. he's one of those players that no matter how the season starts, no matter what form he is in, his serve will be huge. if he and Murray both make it to the final you've got to think Raonic will stand a good chance with Andy with so little match practice! interesting tournament! a lot less NID than Doha will be with Ferrer

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

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

Re: WWW Brisbane International 250

Raonic has a cakewalk of a draw. I wouldn't be surprised if he goes out early. Don't get me wrong, I want Milos to be successful but he seems to have a knack of losing when there is a good opportunity for him.

Roger Federer - Milos Raonic

Djokovic - Nadal - Nishikori - Feli Lopez - Pospisil - Peliwo

Murray to take this event in such a straightforward fashion that Dire straights will look crooked

If Murray wants this he takes this. Raonic is very overrated.

cakewalk of a draw? far from it open your eyes and stop being a blind fan

dimitrov/baker in the second round is not an easy match to start the season with

examine his possible QF opponents:

melzer - beat milos in their previous encounter. Has an under rated return. Definately would be a tough test for milos
goffin- tends to save his best for the bigger events, is something that needs to change. However if he gets there and is playing well it would be interesting
ebden- could be tricky at home

and then mayer and simon are in his section as possibly semi final opponents. Florian defeated milos last year at a time when he was struggling to win matches. If he plays well he is actually the favorite over milos. His funy game really throws players like milos off

and dont count out baghdatis who ALWAYS plays milos tough. yeah milos leads the H2H but really you get the feeling that any matches between the 2 could have gone either way.

so to say milos's draw is a cakewalk is vastly underestimating everyone else. He could very well lose in the second round

having now seen the draw id think andy will win if he cares enough. However there's a couple of players here that could take it too namely baghdatis, simon, raonic and nishikori.

i will say that things worked out really nice for andy since most of the other title contenders are in the other part of the draw

What would you say the odds are of Murray wanting to win this? Just curious. He didn't appear to take every tournament equally seriously last year, do to think that will change now?

Re: WWW Brisbane International 250

Murray only wins the event he takes seriously

Much like Nadal only loses because he is injured

On Murray

What would happen if healthy Nadal and serious Murray played in the same tournament ? The paradox could end life as we know it

Yes, I am perfecly aware of that. But can we say anything about his motivation before the tournament starts? What do you think the odds are he'll take this tournament seriously?

I think he'll certainly want to get a few matches in. Doubt he'll go all out to win though with the AO so close.

nuclear meltdown no doubt. The world would form into a Black hole. Similar to the state which tennis is in whenever Nadal wins a event.

On Murray

I guess he'll win the early matches rather comfortably even if playing at low gear. Then we can see how much he wants this in the later stages. Will be interesting.

Re: WWW Brisbane International 250

Perhaps Murray will go for it considering there's stupid mugs on here saying the Slam is a fluke and he's now choking in every other tournament... easy points defending here for Murray.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.
