The One To Watch Thread

This is probably a stupid thread, but I thought we needed a thread dedicated to the dreaded www.atptennis.com "One to Watch" curse. I thought monitoring the progress of these players could be interesting and we can see if there is truth to the curse.

Re: The One To Watch Thread

For a moment, I thought someone was ripping me off

Good thread though.

Good thread in GM after a long long time!

Re: The One To Watch Thread

At least they didn't call Nikolay "in-form." They use that word to describe every player out there.

Re: The One To Watch Thread

And this had to be the one week where the curse didn't work.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Agreed.

Side note - They've changed the Head 2 Head pic again. Different one for Nadal.

Re: The One To Watch Thread

I've got no problems keeping this thread up to date, i'll keep updating my first post with the one to watch current scores for that week. It could give us some interesting statistics.

Re: The One To Watch Thread

Good idea for a thread, Juanqui Lover

"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: The One To Watch Thread

I'm glad you all like the idea. Davydenko just wiped away Mantilla in straight sets, 6-3 7-5. He will now play Acasuso in the Semi Finals. Trust the curse not to work the week we make the thread. Plenty more chances for it to work though. I really pity next week's one to watch, because who wants to lose early at RG.
