Re: Australian Open 2015 discussion thread

Great draw for Lleyton (you'd almost think it was rigged for his last run!).

Tough ones for Kokk and Millman.

Looking very winnable for everyone else?

All up a pretty good draw...

This is funny because these draws are almost too good to be true. Even the 2nd round draws are good except for Saville and Matosevic (who both have qualifiers first round).

I've literally never seen draws so good for the Australians.

Re: Australian Open 2015 discussion thread

These are some ridiculously good draws. Clay courters, players out of form, players who just aren't good... They couldn't have asked for much better. It could be a good tournament for the country if these guys take their chances (as well as the females, who also have great draws).

We could have an all-Australian third round match in the 16th with Tomic, Groth and Kokkinakis. I'd pick Tomic to come through that section and maybe even go further. But of course we should focus on the first round matches and try not to look ahead

Re: Australian Open 2015 discussion thread

You're right getting him four times at slams is ridiculous odds. But Duckworth beat him at RG Q2 in 14...

Re: Australian Open 2015 discussion thread

DAY 1:

All but Hewitt play on Day 1. Kyrgios on MCA, Tomic and Groth on Hisense, Matosevic and Kokkinakis on SC3, Duckworth on Court 6, Millman Court 8, Thompson Court 13, Savile Court 20.

MCA must be the #2 court now after RLA? It's listed like that on the schedule. I know it's capacity went from 5000 to 7500, but I thought Hisense held more than that, or no?

Yes, but Hisense is ground pass now and MCA is reserved seat.

All depends on you is scheduled to play, me thinks.

Great draws - just hope our guys can deliver, it will be a great spectatcle if they can, to watch more Aussies in the second and third rounds - awesome, I hope.

Duckworth v Kavcic - Lol

Tomic, Matosevic, Groth, Jones, JP Smith, Matty Reid, Barton, Duckworth, Whittington, Kubler, Kyrgios, Bolt, Kokkinakis, Polansky and James Ward

Re: Australian Open 2015 discussion thread

Tomic, Groth, Matosevic, Duckworth, Kokkinakis and Kyrgios through to second round. Impressive !!! and Hewitt still to come - hopefully can watch 7 (yes seven) Aussie men in the second round + 2 of our women (so far).
