Re: Who will win the 2006 Australian Open

Roger will win the Australian Open, I don't see anyone capable of defeating him.

Let's see, he has a clear path (#1 seed) to the SF.

Who is going to beat Roger ? Now that I actually think about it, very unlikely that Safin will be ready in time to contend against the Hewitt's, Agassi's, Roddick's or even Nadal's of the world, let alone Roger.

There will probably be a lot of early round upsets, it'd be easy for one to argue David Nalbandian could give Roger trouble, but he'd have to do a million things to even meet up with him.

Problem is, meeting Roger at the right time and place or advancing far enough to play him if you're a top player.

Hewitt runs into Roger at all the wrong times, the last few tournaments (aside from Australia) he's been placed on Roger's side of the draw.

Fedex is most vulnerable during the earlier rounds of a tournament, if the Berdych's or Gasquet's of the world played him in a QF, it'd be a possibility ... even then ... I wouldn't bet money against Roger.

If he shows up to the tournament with a healthy and confident mindset, completely forgets what a nightmare losing to Nalbandian was ... break out the champagne and mark another Slam down in the book ...

One Small Step for Roger ... closer to Pete.

Re: Who will win the 2006 Australian Open

I'm going to say Roger. I think the lack of play will affect Marat in the beginning of 2006.

Nadal will have to get by Hewitt.

Nadal #2 seed
Federer #1 seed

Since I don't buy into the whole theory of "random seeding", based on this ideology Lleyton would end up on Nadal's side of the draw.

I don't think that Rafael can beat Lleyton's game, Lleyton's thousands of fans supporting him and the speed of the court, which will probably be faster this year after a bit of complaining from other Australian players that it was a tad too slow. That match will be a Davis Cup atmosphere.

If someone defeats Roger before facing Hewitt , Lleyton could win Aus open perfectly . But if Lleyton has to face Federer, his chances are poor because of the aussie's playstyle is hardly harmful to Roger on hard courts since Lleyton isn't a player who cleans lines but plays deep shots without risking too much , so as one of the best Federer's skills is his footwork/mobility on the court , Roger is able to take the point initiative away from Lleyton without a lot of problems and to begin to dictate the point with his groundstrokes .

Although Lleyton is a hell of a player , unluckily for him , his playstyle suits Roger perfectly and in my opinon a hard-hitting player have more chances to beat Roger on hard although surely that hard-hitting is a worse player and less solid than Hewitt .

Re: Who will win the 2006 Australian Open

OK - I will stick my neck out here and say I think Hewitt will win the AO in 2006. I am not a fan of his, - but he is a fighter, he wll be well-rested and he will have the crowd behind him. Just my opinion anyway.

Re: Who will win the 2006 Australian Open

Federer is the obvious choice, but I think Nadal could be a threat. Hewitt has a great chance on home soil after coming so close last year. Inspite of what some people are saying, I can't see Safin defending his crown.
