Australian Open

Pretty decent draw. Seppi first round should be winnable and after that Lu/quali. Monfils in his part, who isn't fully fit. I expect a third round here.


Andy Murray GBR (5) Qualifier
Marc Gicquel FRA Simone Bolelli ITA
Jarkko Nieminen FIN Nick Lindahl AUS
Florent Serra FRA Jurgen Melzer AUT (28)

David Ferrer ESP (17) Andreas Seppi ITA
Qualifier Yen-Hsun Lu TPE
Daniel Koellerer AUT Qualifier
Qualifier Gael Monfils FRA (12)

Re: Australian Open

Wow, wtf was that?! Probably not a very good test, but no waste of energy either. Next up Baghdatis, very tough.

you and me both

I knew there was a reason I hated Eurosport, they took Delpo's match off just as he served for the match

David plays Baghdatis first on Hisense & in theory it should be on TV

Re: Australian Open

Hello

I'm here! I've been trying to watch the AO but am starting to get a little ticked off with ESPN. I can't seem to stay up later than 8.30 and all I get to see before that are women's matches. And when I get up early in the morning they show me a repeat of a women's match or like this morning Roddick! Bwaaahaaa.

Hope to get to see David's match tonight. But not to confident I will.

Re: Australian Open

I watched the whole match & I can safely say until 4*-2 in the 3rd he wasn't so much coasting but he was in control & then one bad service game & it was game over By the end of the 3rd set he looked exhausted But once he got broke at the beginning of the 4th it was obvious Baggy was going to win

And he was playing so well up until then.
