I'm about a Nole-Roddick QF...

Otherwise it's a decent draw.

Should it come to that, I have a feeling Novak will do just fine.
I expect a few shaky matches at first, but he should be and good to go by the time he gets to QF.
Just hope he's fit and healthy, that's my main concern.

for some reason i am strangely optimistic about this tournament. I mean, I dont expect him to win it but I think he should get to at least the SF. I feel like something shifted in my perception of him as he was playing Rafa in DC. For some reason I got a wave of positivity and I hope this means things are finally turning for the better! I really hope so. I hope my optimism is rewarded

I certainly hope so. And I think he'll do a lot better when he's back on HC as opposed to how he played in DC on clay without any match practice.
Adje Nole.

You are describing what I am exactly feeling. During the Dubai tournament I can already feel a little that his dark clouds are leaving him. And although he is dreadful in DC, his frustrations are not as much as before. Hopefully the sunny Djokovic finally re-emerges. And I hope Nole and the other Serbs will encourage each other more. I mean, the trio of Nole, Ana and Jelena should do that after the three are being criticized by the media together.

For prudence, I won't invest too much of my emotions into Nole defending the title. You know, Nole is like some risky shares of stock which can ride up high and then drop down low which drive investors mad (but create excitement too). But all the same, AJDE NOLE!

Believe in yourself, Novak.

Yeah I wonder why. I was amazed when I look into the doubles draw.
Is it because there's a lot of money to earn in the doubles?

No I dont think that would be the reason cos isnt there usually peanuts for doubles players? Though I'd still happily take their pay over mine Maybe it's cos IW is more spread out and hence playing doubles is okay as there is more time to recover for their singles matches? only my speculation

Interestingly though, Roger and Rafa can meet in the 2R if they both win their 1R doubles. Hard task for Roger though..he's playing the Bryan bros first up!!

IMO, a lot of top players didn't play that much lately due to illness, injuries etc., especially in outdoor conditions. So they want to adjust their games for singles, not for doubles itself. When changing conditions drastically or after taking a long-term break, singles players tend to play doubles more than usually they do.

Anyway I always think Nole needs to play some more doubles and take it a little bit more seriously for improving his net game.

Agree...playing doubles can help Nole at the net
