Re: Richard In The Australian Summer 2012- Sydney

I'll stay up for slam matches or even masters but I'm not bothered enough about 250s to stay up. I'm very glad for tennis when I have stupid insomnia though.

Last night was the first night in the last fortnight when Ive slept more than 4 hours a night. Richie's backhand is very handy then.

Why are you laughing? I'm serious

Think about it:

Scenario 1: Gasquet vs Istomin at 3 am => not worth staying up

Scenario 2: Gasquet vs Istomin at 3 am, Li vs Kvitova at 4.30 am => might as well stay up and watch both

Terrible draw all the way, and if he gets through by some miracle, his reward is Djokovic. Draw fom hell.

If he can lose to Istomin, he certainly can lose to Seppi

And even if he's in good form and somehow beats Seppi + Youzhny + Tipsarevic, Ferrer is a terrible match-up for him

Re: Richard In The Australian Summer 2012- Sydney

It's not a draw from hell. Average draw for a 17-24 seed.
