Re: 2012 Schedule Next Up : Marseilles WINNER-next up Dubai

And we have a winner Ladies and Gentlemen! 6-4 6-4 over Mika Llodra in the Marseille final. Next up Dubai where he is seeded 8th and plays the Dog in the first round.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

Re: 2012 Schedule : Marseilles WINNER-next up Dubai

I doubt he will skip dubai. Has a okay draw until facing Tsonga and fed. If he does play, I expect a fairly good run but won't be too upset since I know he's worked hard these last two weeks.

Re: 2012 Schedule : Marseilles WINNER-next up Dubai

Quite pleased with this week. Not only did he have to play well, he also had to deal with playing French players in front of a French crowd. Not an easy task.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.

Re: 2012 Schedule : Marseilles WINNER-next up Dubai

Im just happy that at least he won a title this year. I am so worried about the defending points for IW and Estoril

Re: 2012 Schedule : Marseilles WINNER-next up Dubai

To be honest Dee, he can tank early in IW (3rd/4rd) if he wants to/still feels tired (I don't care since I'm not going this year ) but then he should be able to gain those points back in Miami if he has a favorable draw. He has some points to work with in Miami since he's only defending a 4th round there and I think a few of the top players will be tired if they go far in IW, so it all depends on the relative difficulty of the draws in IW/Miami as to where he can do the best IMO.

Re: 2012 Schedule : Marseilles WINNER-next up Dubai

Well, he can also tank after a couple rounds of Dubai, get some nice money and some points, and go to IW early to prepare.

Re: 2012 Schedule : Marseilles WINNER-next up Dubai

I hate that he's in Fed's side of the draw. We'll just have to see how he does. I'm interested to see how he fares against Tsonga in their rematch. I too would rather he go out early in dubai, and then prepare for IW/Miami which could also be tough.

Re: 2012 Schedule : Marseilles WINNER-next up Dubai

Guys, I just read on HinchadaDelpo that he couldn't find a flight to Dubai until Tuesday, the same day that he's supposed to play Dolgopolov:

Nos informan que vía Radio La Red, Delpo dijo que a Dubai llega el mismo martes para jugar, pues hoy no hay vuelo y viaja recién mañana!
Pobre!
______________________

Delpo will arrive to Dubai on Tuesday, the same day the he 'would' play, because today there are no flights!

Really hope he pulls out now, it's just getting crazy! Taking a long flight on the same day as he has to play the #14 ranked player in the world, after 9 matches in the past two weeks!! Delpo use your brains dammit!

Hopefully this means he is not going to play Dubai. He really should relax a bit.

Re: 2012 Schedule : Marseilles WINNER-next up Dubai

My Little Pony is scheduled to play tomorrow night after Roger Federer's night match, so I think that's around 9PM Dubai time. This would roughly translate to 9AM West Coast time, 12PM East Coast time, 5PM Theresa's time, and 6PM Lori's time
