Re: 2012 December showdown and WC playoff.

The semi-finals are Barton v Mitchell and Smith v Saville or Reid (currently in 1st set tiebreaker).

Reid wins in straights. Hopfully JP takes this out.

Pity JP has to play Reid, just like it was a pity he had to play Jones so early (that shoulda been the final imo).
Barring injury, JP should take this out.
Go the Jipper

Re: 2012 December showdown and WC playoff.

a bit of an upset in the first semi with Reid beating JP in four sets, something like 6-3 6-4 4-6 6-3. and then the massive, five hour five setter with Barton and Mitchell, ending up 6-3 7-6 6-7 3-6 9-7 to Ben. Barton struggled at the end of the second and start of the third with a line call against him on his set point at 6-5, losing the tiebreak and then going down 3-0 in the thrid, so he did well to turn it around from there. and then the big celebration from Mitchell at the end, he was pumped!

i'll be going for Mitchell tomorrow in the final, hopefully he recovers well and is able to back it up tomorrow. anyway a good test of his fitness today at least, he proved he can go all the way into the fifth.

Take it out Benny shame Barton couldn't get the win though. Would have liked to see him win it.

Re: 2012 December showdown and WC playoff.

Reid has to win the playoff, cause they won't give him a WC. Whereas I see Mitchell getting one if he loses.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Congrats to Mitchell well deserved wildcard.

Well played Ben. Well done.
I must say I was hoping Reid would win for the very reason AJ stated above.
I hope Reid does get the final AO WC for his efforts this year and at the play-off.
