Hoping he'll do well here, but I'm a bit concerned about the idea of not having any warm-up tournaments.
Grey was the main colour of my school uniform ... have disliked the colour ever since!

I was a bit surprised that Roger wasn't playing anywhere before the AO - but I believe he knows his body + mind best so refused to be concerned about it.

Belated Roger-Happy New Year to one and all here. I'm keeping everything x'd the year will get even happier on Sunday, January 27.

Re: ♕ 2013 Australian Open ♕ - Waiting for the main draw.

Guys. I'm worried. After that leg stretch with the pink t-shirt we didn't see more pictures of Roger practicing.
I mean yesterday and today. Nowin Melbourne is 6.25pm so the day there has finished.

I hope there is a good reason we didn't see such a pictures.

Roger in some interview told hr would like to take rest 2 or 3 days befor his 1st match.
So it means Friday Saturday and Sunday if he plays on Monday and I'm afr as id he's playing on tuesday so one more day.

As I said a lot of times: "If we can't believe in Roger, we can't believe in nobody".

It's going to be fine Remember no abstentations, WOs given or retirements in slams ever.

Not sure if it has been posted in this thread but here's the link for the livestream for the draw. It's in 6 hours although I expect to know the actual draw in about 7.

tough draw, mainly because davydenko in 2cnd and murray in semi.

Anyway, good opponents give opportunity to good tennis matches. Hope Federer can play his best!

Yes hopefully challenges along the way will lead to him growing stronger and play the best tennis he can as each match goes by.

Re: ♕ 2013 Australian Open ♕ - Waiting for the main draw.

There's no other choice but to be incredibly fit and great from the start in his first tournament of the year at 30 years old.

All of his first three rounds' opponents can be very very dangerous : Paire, Davydenko, Tomic or Klizan.

Next rounds are better and then there's Murray but I can't look that far, as these first rounds are the worst he's had in years, and precisely the year when he hasn't had warm-up tournaments !

Either he's in one of his best slam forms of recent years or it can be finished early.
