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

Roger will play on tuesday as the top-half starts on monday.

Note : according to the weather forecast, tuesday and thursday are supposed to be much hotter than previous day, I think it's quite good for Roger as Paire and Davydenko are not very fit imo and also the ball is harder to control in hot weather, which might be a problem for Paire especially.

Can't wait for the AO to start. Am really in suspense as to what level Roger will display not having played warm-up tourneys.

Wasn't it 2007 where RF did not play a warm-up and ended up becoming the first player for 25 years to win a slam without the loss of a set ?

I remember he played kooyang and lost to Roddick in the final I cant forget it becuase I was worried ROddick might take a set in the semis

Oh the 2007 form! Ah nostalgia!

It was 2008 in which he didn't play any prep tournies, due to 'cold' which as we know was actually mono.

So RF plays 3rd in the day session. At least the awful pink kit will be delayed for one more day. Of course, I'm assuming he wins .
