Re: Time for a fresh start! The Aussie 2009 tournaments thread

Paulo and Mario playing doubles together is possibly too hot an idea for me to contemplate (the Marat/Paulo was enough).

As for the singles, it always makes me slightly nervous when a first match of the season is against a Qualie since they've already had matches..and then potentially Djoko... but 2009 is a fresh start so Vamos Paulo. May 2009 be the best year for Paulo fans (and the man himself) so far.

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?

That's a tough draw! Not knowing the opponent is a bit annoying. I'm glad it's not going to be Guccione or Isner though. VAMOS!!!

Doubles with Mario... WOW! Ah, no chance of seeing the match today

Btw, Paulo will play Zagreb, Rotterdam and (most likely) Marseille.

Federer
Dimitrov | Ancic | Baghdatis | Eysseric | Herbert

What a pity I hope they will play doubles together again some day.

Paulo's first round opponent is Gabashvili, he'll play tomorrow at 2 PM local time on Court 2.

Oh well... it's not a beauty contest

Gabashvili can be tricky, if he decides to bring his head to the court.
Vamos Paulo!

Gulbis is next right??
GULBIS Can't believe Djoko lost honestly
it'll be the best start for my faves if Mario can win also

Re: Time for a fresh start! The Aussie 2009 tournaments thread

Hmmmmmm
I'm not exactly enjoying the hype over Gulbis Honestly, I'd have preferred to see Djokovic through

Seems like a VERY close match for Mario!

Re: Time for a fresh start! The Aussie 2009 tournaments thread

Yay, first victory of the year!
I was a bit worried about this match and hoped, that the doubles match gave Paulo enough practise. So Gulbis is next? Vamos Paulo!

Re: Time for a fresh start! The Aussie 2009 tournaments thread

Thanks for the stats, Olga! (I can't open ATP SB at home )

2nd serve points won were pretty low there His first serve was so effective!!

Re: Time for a fresh start! The Aussie 2009 tournaments thread

You're welcome, Jai

It was great to see some aces when he was having troubles on his serve
I was a bit scared, when Paulo went down 15-40 in the first game though
