Federer and Nalbandian asked for playing on tuesday, and usually all is made for Hewitt to play on first saturday so Richard should play on monday.

I would not mind Hewitt/Safin on Saturday and confirmation for renaud's considerations:

Re: §_§_§_The Season 2008 Down Under_§_§_§

Am I correct in assuming that because Richard is seeded 8th, he should be playing either Centre Court (Rod Laver Arena) or Vodafone Arena, and not on one of the show courts, which means that his matches should be televised live? Can anyone advise?

As he plays against a young Australian his first match will surely be broadcast.
I think there are at least 6 courts with cameras, so if you suscribe to a multiplex streaming you won't miss anything.

Many thanks Renaud. I thought this may be the case. We should be guaranteed televised viewing without subscribing to multiplex streaming.

Sydney:
No comment regarding the singles tournament. Great that he got some matchplay in doubles.

AO:
Not a bad draw, TBH. Just hope he doesn't screw it up.

Missed ya SW!

Good luck Richie and Jo in the final. Hope all the practice he got palying aggressively in doubles will spill over to his singles.

About AO draw - I stopped trying to figure out if it's a good draw or a bad draw because with Richie the best draw can turn out to be a nightmare and a bad draw can end up a dream. Do hope he can have ANOTHER successful showdown with Murray (unless Tsonga takes out Murray which I doubt will happen), but that is way too far ahead, one step at a time...

Me too!! But as I am American and hoping for a France/USA quarterfinal, I'll be hopelessly split as I'd already have to pull for Andy and James over Richard.

Andy and James already won the Cup once. So you have to root for Richie, no?

Call me a traitor but for me it would be Richie, all the way. As you say James and Andy already won it - only fair Hard to separate the country from the player.

I was at two matches of Nick Lindahl last year. This guy is really good when he's in the zone. Playing the first match might be tricky so good luck, Richard

Technically, that make sense. I have a lot of favorites and I always have to compromise when they play each other. Like, when Nalby played Safin at the USO in 0, I pulled for Safin because he was lower ranked. Bu the next time they played, I pulled for David because he lost the last time.

With James and Richard, I think I pull for James simply because he has never beaten Richie. Regarding Andy: he's my number one favorite by a long shot, not just one of my favorites. I have never pulled against him, and I don't plan on ever doing it.
