~ The Dubai 2012 Cheering Thread ~ wins 7-5 6-4 vs Murray for his 72nd title! YESSS



I thought I would start the thread Hope that's ok!
Quote:
Djokovic, N (1) - Stebe
Stakhovsky - WC
Ljubicic - Cipolla
Kunitsyn - Tipsarevic (7)

Murray (3) - Q
Davydenko - Q
Q - Bubka
B. Becker - Berdych (5)

Del Potro - Dolgopolov
Q - M.Djokovic
Mannarino - Rosol
Baghdatis - Tsonga (4)

Fish (6) - A.Beck
Youzhny - Gasquet
Mahut - Lopez
Llodra - Federer (2)
Things to look forward to:
- Dubai players' party, he usually puts in an appearance
- Fed and Nole played on top of the Burj al Arab this morning, photos are embargoed until Monday

Past results:
2011 - lost in final to Djokovic. Beat Devvarrman, Granollers, Stakhovsky, and Gasquet en route.
2010 - withdrew due to lung infection
2009 - did not play
2008 - lost in R1 to Murray
2007 - beat Youzhny in the final. Beat Pless, Bracciali, Djokovic, Haas en route.
2006 - lost in final to Rafa. Beat Wawrinka, Ghareeb, Vik, Youzhny en route.
2005 - beat Ljubicic in the final. Beat Minar, Ferrero, Youzhny, Agassi en route.
2004 - beat Feli in the final. Beat Safin, Robredo, Pavel, Nieminen en route.
2003 - beat Jiri Novak in the final. Beat Labadze, Abel, Arazi, Ljubicic en route.
2002 - lost in R16 to Schuettler. Beat Voinea en route.

So all of that combines to a 29-4 win-loss record, 4 titles from 6 finals!

Re: ~ The Dubai 2012 Cheering Thread ~ Allez Roger!

Best of luck Roger!
Strong field here, him reaching the semis or even the QF would already be a decent result imho - especially after he's already managed to rack up plenty of points in Rotterdam.
But of course... the more the better!

Re: ~ The Dubai 2012 Cheering Thread ~ Allez Roger!

A title here would be pretty cool, Dubai has a masters' draw.
And it's a really important 500 tournament.
Go Rog!

Re: ~ The Dubai 2012 Cheering Thread ~ Allez Roger!

Thanks for the pics Fed_Ds! I love that 'there is no finish line' t-shirt he's wearing

Nole and Murray in the top half, Fed and Delpo bottom apparently.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Re: ~ The Dubai 2012 Cheering Thread ~ Allez Roger!

The full draw:

Djokovic, N (1) - Stebe
Stakhovsky - WC
Ljubicic - Cipolla
Kunitsyn - Tipsarevic (7)

Murray (3) - Q
Davydenko - Q
Q - Bubka
B. Becker - Berdych (5)

Del Potro - Dolgopolov
Q - M.Djokovic
Mannarino - Rosol
Baghdatis - Tsonga (4)

Fish (6) - A.Beck
Youzhny - Gasquet
Mahut - Lopez
Llodra - Federer (2)

Good draw for Fed. Not very easy on what from Murray's quotes seems a fast court, given Fed has a bunch of attacking players in his Qtr starting right from Llodra, but nonetheless none of them should be able to actually beat him. Tsonga/Delpo in the semis will be tough, but I will take those two over Berdych/Murray anyday.

Hope he makes a good run and wins the title, he has a good chance, so Roger!

Re: ~ The Dubai 2012 Cheering Thread ~ Allez Roger!

Fed - Llodra
Fed - Mahut
Fed - Gasquet?

This is like a dream draw.

Lots of good matches!

Could see Fed - Del Po as the Semis here.

Murray/Djokovic/Berdych all on the other side of the draw. Hope he wins this.

Re: ~ The Dubai 2012 Cheering Thread ~ Allez Roger!

Llodra plays the final in Marseille tomorrow, no? Should be too much for him to adapt to Dubai that quickly... good draw for Fed I'd say.

Release the Stanimal!!
