The draw for AO

Is the draw available for the AO? I want to know where they will place David Nalbandian because I would like for him to be in the bottom half and I would like for Roger Federer to be placed in the top half. I am curious to see a Nalby-Fed AO Final (with Nalby defeating Fed in a close-five setter). If Nalby doesn't make it to the final, then I would like to see a Hewitt-Fed AO Final (with Hewitt defeating Fed) because it has been a long time since Hewitt won a major and he was close to winning his native slam last year. Also, he hasn't played much since the US Open so he should be in top shape and the birth of his daughter will add extra motivation. I have nothing against Rogi Fed, but the day will come that he will lose his first major final and I am curious to find out who will defeat him. No offense to die-hard Fed fans, but I am only being honest.

Re: The draw for AO

Fed will definitely be in the top half. Roddick definitely in the bottom. That's about all we know for sure. lol.

Re: The draw for AO

Which is Thursday evening for the thread starter, here in the US. It will be put in the Aus Open forum (probably by smucav, she does types up excellent draws).

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Really? well at the AO website, if you click at mens draw it says that it will be released at January 15th. Is kinda weird though...

Someone on the tennis warehouse boards thinks Lleyton should be seeded second. Since when does any tournament other than Wimbledon mess with the seedings? The only time I'm aware of it was 1996 US Open.

Re: The draw for AO

The Main Draw will be released on Sunday 15 January and play begins Monday 16 January, 2006. The Australian Open Website will have full draw sheets from the five main draw tournaments, the four junior tournaments and the wheelchair Classic 8s. These pages display completed match scores and the progression of the players in each event (Men's Singles, Women's Singles, etc.) and allow you to view the next and previous round match-ups (where available).

I really am hoping it is a typo, but it would be a reaaaal big one
