Sydney: 'It is a far, far better thing that he does...'

A surprise entry here but we may hope that it is not a complete waste.

And as our expectations are pretty low, I need feel no responsiblity for the results.

I fear that we all just may have to accept that the results are all on Nole and no one else.

Here's hoping the season restarts itself in Sydney!

We shall airbrush today from the annals and try to keep in mind that history is written by the winners.

Nice to see the big 3 are all doing splendidly in Doha

They'll all do so well, they'll be exhausted by AO And besides - what competition did they have? Montanes and Starace, and a very old Santoro Nole was just unlucky with the draw in Brisbane - these things happen sometimes.

Re: Sydney: 'It is a far, far better thing that he does...'

He didn't look tired in yesterday's match, just rusty and unenthusiastic. If my observations are correct, it seems like he needs match practice more than rest right now... Though he can't have too much of one at the expense of the other, of course

PS - I haven't read around this forum recently, but what's the update on the Nole-Marko situation? I thought they got a wildcard into the doubles?

No offense to Herdwick's thread. Just merge.
