Re: 2012 December showdown and WC playoff.

This is my call for the WC

Mitchell, Saville, JP Smith, Duckworth and Kyrgios.

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".

Re: 2012 December showdown and WC playoff.

I'd wait to see what everyone does in week one of the tour, and go solely off those efforts for the remaining WCs.

I'd put the next best ranked Aussie, after Ebden, into the mix - Millman.

So Mitchell (won the WC), Millman, Duckworth, Saville and Smith.
Kyrgios in the Qualies.

Smith or Saville may get bumped if someone, like Gooch, Groth, Ball, Jones has an amazing run in Brisbane.

That's my pick.

It's politics they will be very unlikely to give Millman one though he deserves it. That was the reason I said those names not because that's who I think should get one.

If I had my way Millman and Reid would, but I don't.

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".

Re: 2012 December showdown and WC playoff.

If Kyrgois gets one then what was the point of having them play 5 sets at the WC playoff. Clearly, he isn't quite able to play 5 sets at the moment. No doubt he is looking like a bright prospect but WC, no. I would replace him with Millman out of AJ's selections and if those 4 got selected, I would be happy.

Smith - Had a solid year on the challenger tour
Millman - also, has slugged it out on the challenger tour and ha simproved hsi ranking into the top 200
Duckworth - Battled injuries but was the star of the last summer and all things cosnidered he had an alright season after that. I think there is no question he'll get one.
Saville - Time to give him a go in the seniors.

I've got an inkling about him as well but didn't want to say it first given I'm driving his bandwagon.

To aussie fan, Kyrgios lost his 11th match in 9 days in a 5th set after beating the number one seed in round one. Given how much he played I think he deserves an exemption from such fitness statements.
