Re: Tennis Tipping #34a - Manerbio - open for commitments =)

Monday's "Match of the Day"

Gavnich77 (AUT) v. SeagullUK (GBR)

The veteran has been on a mini-slump as of late, sliding out of the top 100, while his opponent, the number 2 seed, has been on the up and up breaking into the top 100 and claiming two doubles titles in Newport and Indy. However, the former-Brit-turned-Austrian, who switched allegiances at the end of last year in an attempt to go for DC glory with tiptopdaisy, has plenty of experience on the main tour- so not counting him out just yet. With the growing exodus of British TT players to far-flung places starting to mirror the diaspora of Chinese professional table-tennis players, it will be interesting to see how those who left home to escape the system will match up to those who stayed behind.

Prediction: So close, but a tight victory for the newcomer. +1 differential.
