Unless you are meaning the referee, both players are American.

Re: Australian Open 1st Round Discussion (Men/Women)

my bookie still doest have under/over bets or HC.....just straight win or 3:0/not 3:0

Dancevic malted yesterday but 1.70(you colud get more laying 3:0 Blake on betfair) for him to win a set against Blake looks good
Hrbaty 1.70 is a fighter and need to respect his current form..just beated some mugs....1.70 in my eyes he is a solid fav against Isner

Re: Australian Open 1st Round Discussion (Men/Women)

Maybe he needed a rest.

Tommy @1,83 is one hell of a value bet in my opinion...
Well, it was an exhibition.
Do you know if some videos are available about this match ?

Re: Australian Open 1st Round Discussion (Men/Women)

Haas might start to shorten dramatically...

I really dont rate amer delic, getting double bageled by the mighty mayer is a good sign of his current state.

Re: Australian Open 1st Round Discussion (Men/Women)

Im starting to like the look of korolev, moya looked very average in melbourne

Benny has a good record against baggy

Clement likes it in australia...

rainer looks like a nice match up for sela

Koubek could be worth a go considering mishas performance vs hanescu two weeks ago.

Re: Australian Open 1st Round Discussion (Men/Women)

The AO is unique in that the weather plays such a huge role in the outcome of the matches, many of these players are simply not used to the extreme heat.

Just keep that in mind
