Re: Novakaroo hops over to Melbourne (the AO thread)

Alright ladies and menfolk...
It's time for my Grand Slam fantasy draw (Australia version)

This draw is entirely possible given my understanding of the seeding/placement process.

This is the draw I want to see...

P.S. this file is just a tiny text file. Open it without fear.

Oh...this is where the seeds would be scheduled to meet in the third round.

Considering from what I heard on BBC world news this morning, Rafa is out. Has that been announced on MTF yet? Anyhoo, how would no Rafa affect things? The seeds would reshuffle then, yes? *edit* Okay the lady on the radio misspoke. She was talking about the Australian Open and must have confused that with Sydney.

But humour me and tell me what happens anyway?

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Novakaroo hops over to Melbourne (the AO thread)

Weeelll. As a 13-16 seed you would match up with any 1-4 seed in the 4th round. That's the problem Berdych kept having last year. He played Federer in the 4th round @ both RG and Wimby. Sooo....if Nadal went out, Blake would be the 4th seed. Not that much better than an injured Rafa.

This is all predicated on me understanding how the draw works...which I'm not totally confident about.

Re: Novakaroo hops over to Melbourne (the AO thread)

Is it true that he's in Kooyong as an alternate?

Kooyong is in Melbourne. It's where the Aussie Open used to be played I think.

the girl has to find another t-shirt

Re: Novakaroo hops over to Melbourne (the AO thread)

NO. He drew into the Roger quarter.

Getting that far (4th round) would be nice.

Murray's draw is worse.
