Sun, Surf and Bikinis - AO 2009

Well the draw is out for the first GS of the year, Willy is in Rafa's half. Willy's 1st rd opponent is Keifer, hopefully Keifer still hasn't recovered from his ankle injury he sustained in the HC. If Willy gets through that he will play the winner of Hewitt vs Gonzo in the 2nd rd.

I just want him to win his 1st rd match at this stage.

Same here, nothing against Keifer, but he sure can be tough if he wanted to. so good luck to Willy, as you said a first round win is what we're hoping for (at least for now )

Any way here's his quarter:
[1] Nadal vs C Rochus
Serra vs Karanusic
Schwank vs Haas
Q vs [29] Tursunov
[24] Gasquet vs Junqueira
Spadea vs Istomin
Canas vs Kiefer
Hewitt vs [13] Gonzalez

[12] Monfils vs Vassallo Arguello
Youzhny vs Koubek
Golubev vs Fognini
Massu vs [17] Almagro
[25] Karlovic vs Gimeno-Traver
Volandri vs Ancic
Guccione vs Devilder
Andujar vs [6] Simon

Re: Sun, Surf and Bikinis - AO 2009

Yes, it could be tough one as Kiefer plays well at the Aussie Open, but he can definitely be beaten, especially if Canas is in good form. I would love to see him win this first round match, I think it would be huge for his confidence for the year.

Re: Sun, Surf and Bikinis - AO 2009

i can't believe he's getting a crappy draw again. He's not starting off the year with any favors.
I hope he's in excellent form, performing well and with his heart and soul into it!!

Re: Sun, Surf and Bikinis - AO 2009

Von, well at least it is not Gonzo he has to play 1st rd. This will be a repeat of his Wimbledon 1st rd match, where he was leading Keifer but he injured his ankle and subsequently lost in 4 sets.

I'm sure he will play with his heart and soul.

Re: Sun, Surf and Bikinis - AO 2009

Kiefer is out and has been replaced by the qualifier Kindlmann. I'm not surprised since last time I saw Kiwi he was being taken off the court at Hopman Cup in a wheelchair.

Snoo I was just coming to report the same thing, let us hope it is a 1st rd win for the Willstar.

BTW which country does your flag represent - sorry for being ignorant.

Re: Sun, Surf and Bikinis - AO 2009

Interesting about the Doubles. Canas won a doubles at a challenger at the end of 2008 with another Russian, Tursonov. I think they will be a great doubles team. Good Luck Willy!!

Re: Sun, Surf and Bikinis - AO 2009

Well he was certainly moving quite well in practice but it is 1 set all and Kindlemann is about to serve for the 3rd set. Unfortunately no livestream etc.
Hoping he comes through however how long it takes, and if he wins he will take on Gonzo.

Re: Sun, Surf and Bikinis - AO 2009

Yesssssss he's through finally. Seriously, he’s got to stop getting broken while serving for the match, but a win is a win, I really missed grand slam wins .
