Re: The Australian Open thread, Allez RF!

Early day for me on Sunday.

AO R1 - Roger vs Melzer

I didn't see a thread for the 1st match, so I thought I should start one. At least this how we did at rf.com. I understood that we will comment the match here, not on the general section.

Re: AO R1 - Roger vs Melzer

Although Melzer is a qualifier, this is the first real test for Roger. Grand Slam, best of 5 and lots of points to defend. He should take this in 3.

Re: AO R1 - Roger vs Melzer

^^ Melzer is not just a qualifier, he's experienced, lefty, and I remember he beat Roger some yrs ago. I'm saying it's not a walk in a park. All the best for Roger !

It could be, when Melzer is off, he's way off.

We usually don't make a new thread for each match, just do all our commenting in the tournament thread (the one swissmaestro92 made):
The Australian Open thread, Allez RF!

But I'm not the boss of this place or anything Maybe @Litotes has an opinion?

I'm not the boss of this place either. I'd like to have one thread for the tournament since that's what we've done so far, but that's just one personal opinion. I can merge if people agree.

Re: AO R1 - Roger vs Melzer

I'm d'accord with Litotes. One Thread for the Tournament is better.
