Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

to be honest i don't think he has any chance to beat Wawrinka on Sunday if he keeps playing like the 3 rounds before!

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

Let's not forget that both of Wawrinka's victories over Andy came in retirements (2008 Rome & 2009 Shanghai) whereas Andy beat Wawrinka easily in Davis Cup in 2009.

Wawa struggles with big serves, his ROS of the fast ball isn't very good. I think he won't be able to get enough balls back if Andy serves well. I also think Stan isn't a shot maker, he'll try to rally with Andy...so I mean he's going to have alot of looks in every set.

This is all pointless anyways, if he wins he'll get Federer in the qrts. I don't think the surface is fast enough that he'll be able to use his serve to keep Federer at bay. GSM.

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

Is it wrong of me to sorta kinda maybe want Stan to win, just because I don't want to see Andy lose to Fed yet again?

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

Saw the Wawa match and was duly impressed. If Andy plays passive and comes to the net at the wrong time as is his want lately then he will lose. Can a gal hope that his team scouts better?

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

You all are worried about little old "baby-mama leaving" Stan? I think Andy's going to be just fine...4 sets, one tie break. Andy will beat the Swiss Davis Cup team on his way to claiming his first AO title, you heard it here first!










My New Year's resolution was to be more optimistic in general...how am I doing?
