Re: 2012 Australian Open Cheering Thread

Definitely a bad draw. Lets hope he somehow gets to 4th round, to at least defend his points from last year and don't drop in the rankings more.

I dub this year's tournament Andy Pilgrim versus the world.

In related news, I think Andy had his worse Kooyong ever. Maybe he didn't go that hard against Kei? It's just that usually he takes this exhibition very seriously, it would be really said if he played hard and everyone else sort of played half power and still he lost two matches.

Andy-Hewitt Rnd 2.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: AO 2012 - Andy Pilgrim vs the World.

Anyone watching?

I cannot figure out, whether Haase has some kind of injury that bothers him, or Andy has broken his spirit in this match? Either way, Haase has been playing terrible today, missing shots left and right, even missing an easy ball with a racket once

Re: AO 2012 - Andy Pilgrim vs the World.

Well, a win is a win. Haase was really bad, but at least Andy did not have to play for long time. Against Hewitt it will be very difficult.

What is the new sponsor? I saw some golden thing on his sleeve.

Re: AO 2012 - Andy Pilgrim vs the World.

Don't know why people are thinking the Hewitt match will be a tough one...the guy can barely win a match at the GSs now. Hopefully it is tough and Andy has to play a bit more aggressive to win.

Re: AO 2012 - Andy Pilgrim vs the World.

Hewitt is a great player and fighter. He may not be what once was, but so do Andy. Hewitt is one of the toughest guys to play against, especially in Slams. He has always given Andy trouble. The last thing I expect is easy match against Lleyton. With the crowd at his side, he can produce, especially in big matches like the one against Andy.

Re: AO 2012 - Andy Pilgrim vs the World.

yeah, despite hewitt's recent troubles, i wouldn't count him completely out when competing against andy. do i hope it's not too bad for andy and he'd get it done quickly? of course. but i won't be too surprised if hewitt somehow takes it to andy a bit.

and aside from the singles, can't wait for the mixed draw. so even if andy (hopefully!) makes it to the fourth and bombs out, he could potentially still have mixed with serena.

...Fool me three times, either I'm kind of stupid or you're really good at this.

Yes, I love this pair, too. Ever since their 2001 USO QF.
