Dubai-ye Dubai-ya Take the heat DEAR! Congratulation! Nole's first title in 2009

Quote:
[1] Novak Djokovic (SRB) - Flavio Cipolla (ITA)
Jan Hernych (CZE) - Mikhail Youzhny (RUS)
Jurgen Melzer (AUT) - Julien Benneteau (FRA)
Janko Tipsarevic (SRB) - [5] Marin Cilic (CRO)

[3] Gilles Simon (FRA) - [WC] Mohammad Ghareeb (KUW)
Teimuraz Gabashvili (RUS) - Laurent Recouderc (FRA)
Victor Hanescu (ROU) - Fabrice Santoro (FRA)
Marco Chiudinelli (SUI) - [7] Ivo Karlovic (CRO)

[6] Igor Andreev (RUS) - Feliciano Lopez (ESP)
Dmitry Tursunov (RUS) - [WC] Andreas Seppi (ITA)
Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER) - Michael Lammer (SUI)
Ivan Ljubicic (CRO) - [4] David Ferrer (ESP)

[8WC] Marat Safin (RUS) - Richard Gasquet (FRA)
Viktor Troicki (SRB) - Simone Bolelli (ITA)
Rainer Schuettler (GER) - Arnaud Clement (FRA)
Sergiy Stakhovsky (UKR) - [2] Andy Murray (GBR)
The most dangerous oppoent in his half is Cilic in QF. If he pass Cilic, he will very likely play vs Simon whom he should not have any problem.

Hope he can defend his SF points here.

Idemo Nole!

Ajde Nole!

Agree that Cilic is biggest threat in his half. Should defend his SF points.

Come on Nole! Take the title!

Djokovic and Murray top seeds

Dubai: With some of the top players missing the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships either due to injuries or otherwise, the favourites' tag now falls on Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.

Murray is just back from winning his second title of the season in Rotterdam, while Djokovic was up against Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the semifinal of the Marseille Open last night.

And both Djokovic and Murray seem to have got easy matches in the first two rounds with the top-seeded Serbian taking on one of the four qualifiers, while the Scot drawing Ukrainian Sergiy Stakhovsky.

Gilles Simon of France, another semifinalist against countryman Michael Llodra in Marseille last night, and David Ferrer of Spain are the number three and four seeds this week.

Some of the top players such as Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Andy Roddick, Nicolai Davydenko and Fernando Verdasco have pulled out, mostly due to injuries.

And if all goes as per form, the second seeded Murray may end up playing former world number one and wild card Marat Safin in the quarterfinals, while Djokovic may run into fifth seed Marin Cilic at the same stage.

This is Cilic's second year in Dubai - his first visit last year was cut short by Djokovic in the very first round. Since then, the lanky Croat has progressed well after starting this season with two titles on the Tour - Chennai and Zagreb.

"Last year I didn't stick around, but now I am not too scared either of Murray or Djokovic as I have been playing some solid tennis of late," Cilic said.

Re: Dubai-ye Dubai-ya Take the heat DEAR! Cheering Thread

Oh....a series of heart attacks coming then...
This Cilic took away a lot of Nole's energy in USO last year
Hopefully Nole can be through......
If it's Nole VS Murray in the final, I'm gonna go crazy....

AJDE NOLE!!!!!!!

"If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same"

Believe in yourself, Novak.
That's all I ask of you.

Re: Dubai-ye Dubai-ya Take the heat DEAR! Cheering Thread

I want a Marat-Nole final so badly. I want Marat to have a good final year and I want Murray gone in the first round so he can distance himself from Nole (points wise)

I like Andy, I really do, but Marat has been a long-time fave of mine and Nole needs this title to get some confidence back.

Cipolla Know nothing about him - so I guess it could be worse. If he's an Italian, probably not one of the dreaded big servers I hate so much

Re: Dubai-ye Dubai-ya Take the heat DEAR! Cheering Thread

I don't know about his game but as fa as I know he isn't a big server.
Heard one of his weapons is slice backhand that doesn't allow opponent to hit hard.
