Re: Novak in DUBAI Thread (Round 1 vs. Vliegen)!

Hopefully the second round qualifier is not Viktor (should Viktor qualify and win a round)

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

I hope he plays even as I dislike Dubai with respect to their discriminatory ban of Israeli players . I think he wants to take on Federer

I hope Viktor qualifies first and maybe plays Nole . I wouldnt mind either of them playing Federer then. Remember Viktor had a much closer match against Federer in Tokyo with 2 tie breaks than Nole had so far

I guess, since IW seeds won't start til Friday or Saturday, it's okay to play this week.

It's a good week to beat Roger.

I don't want him to play Nole! I would be so torn

But yeah, Viktor has won more games against Federer in his match than Nole has in any one match against Federer. If Viktor had just won those two tiebreaks... *sigh*

The real reason I'm afraid of Viktor playing Nole is that Viktor might actually win

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka

IW and Miami take up entire schedule for march and there are plenty days of rest so it's not bad

Nole is one of the few players who is not afraid of that thinking and Dubai may well be a place for it

The way I see is that it would be a good thing for Viktor to win if ever since we know what Nole can do and have a picture of what he will achieve . But Nole can be ruthless sometimes so you never know

EDIT: Viktor lost a qualie so no dillema anymore

Serbia played against Belgium two years ago in Belgrade and Janko won against both Rochus, at 1st day Nole had 2:1 against Olie, but he lost and 5th match was against Vliegen and Belgian overplayed him. After that Nole won every DC match (except Federer).

Time for revenge.
