Re: Ding Dong! We're Off to Melbourne Park for the 2010 AO! R1 vs. Gimeno Traver!

Yeah, pretty good draw I'd say. Seems like a good road to the QFs then only have one of Tsonga, Haas, Soderling.

Re: Ding Dong! We're Off to Melbourne Park for the 2010 AO! R1 vs. Gimeno Traver!

Not a bad draw at all!!!! At least he managed to escape, Delpo, Nadal, Murray, Roddick!!! But he will have to deal with Sold/Tsonga, Federer,........ He is probaly already analysing his draw with his coaches and figuring out best tactics (at least I hope that is the case). What is up with Vajda? I did not see him in Nole's booth during the match against Verdasco? Does anybody know what is going on???? Is he on vacation? I hope Vajda will be there for the AO? I cannot even imagine Vajda out of the picture he is Nole's 2nd father and part of the family!!!!!!!!!!! That will be devastating for Nole! Maybe Vajda's absence was the reason why Nole was completly out of his groove???? Please let us know if you have any news. Wishing Nole all the best and hopping he will start off the AO firing on all 4 cylinders!!!!

Yeah, it could be worse still there's some dangerous players here and there though.
It seems that every single time, Nole lands in Fed's half in hard court slams.

Yay! Ajde Nole! Beat the heat!!

And thank you kalisita.

Looks good to me. Nadal vs. Kohlschreiber could be fun in the 3rd round.

Happy new year, Nole pervs fans. Good draw for Novak. I don't need to tell you which final I'm jonesing for.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
