He's got Andreev, Tursunov, Verdasco, Blake, and probably Hewitt or Berdych in the final.

Exactly, he's no.8 currently, and we saw in his interview that his aim for this year is getting into the top 5. So he should deal with all the tough opponents. If he can, he definitely will achieve his goal, even the better.

Tough opening match.

Good luck, Richie.

Mia, Richie most probably plays Stan in the second round.

Wawrinka has to play a final today and travel to Australia thereafter, it won't be easy for him eihter. And as had been pointed out by others: Richard is nr 8 in the world now: He is a bad draw for his opponents, not the other way round.

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

Puschkin or the voice of Wisdom

exactly,now he is n°8 in the world,he got a new statut he has to make the others respect him.
That was great to qualify for the TMC in shangai but it was a step to another level.The tough things begins NOW.
All these good opponents will see him differently I think.It will be tough cause he is the one to beat but richard will have to show he's not afraid of them and that he will do his job.Win matches.go!

GASQUET

Tsonga - Simon - Monfils - Mathieu - Chardy - Baghdatis
Mannarino - Safin - Santoro - Gulbis- Nishikori

Unfortunately, I am not sure he realizes it. (I tend to forget it too )

It's not an easy draw but at least, it will be a good preparation for the AO.
Allez Richard! Get some confidence.

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

Allez Richard!

Remember who's supposed to be the player to beat...

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
Allez Gasquet~Mathieu~Wawrinka~Mannarino~+++

So true. I was reacting like a fan of the "old Richie" but now he is in the TOP 10, has overcome a pressure filled match in front of his home crowd, given Nadal a tough match and beaten Djoke in Shanghai, he SHOULD be able to deal with anyone in this draw. We'll know in a few days if the old or the "new Richie" has come to Australia.

Allez Richie - just believe in yourself and stay fired up!

Anyone know of any live stream links for Sydney? I've been itching to see Richard live in action.

Or use myp2p.eu, go to 'live sports' and click on tennis. It should have a few streams for different tournies.

Sorry that Stan lost to Murray.

But please let Richie do it to Stan as well if he faces.
