Playoffs: Morocco vs Australia

Morocco: Mehdi Ziadi Hicham Arazi Mounir El Aarej Mehdi Tahiri

Australia: Lleyton Hewitt Todd Reid Wayne Arthurs Todd Woodbridge

Surface: Grass (Outdoors)

Played at West Perth Australia


Morocco is really doomed!!! lol. I dont believe they have a chance of winning a match except for maybe Arazi. He is the only decent one on the team on grass.

Fernando Gonzalez Nicolas Massu Gael Monfils Marcos Baghdadis

Re: Playoffs: Morocco vs Australia

I went out to where the tie is being held today (Kings Park)....didnt know where the courts were so I thought id better know before Friday

Practice courts were right out back and Todd Woodbridge and Todd Reid were having a hit....pretty cool because the thought never even crossed my mind that there might be anyone on the courts there....and especially seeing as before today the only pro players id seen were Lleyton and Karol Kucera at this years Hopman Cup. Perfect weather today, so hopefully it'll hold up for the weekend

Had the digital camera there, but didnt want to sit around taking photos so I only took the one photo of Woodbridge

edit: bugger...cant post the image (the files 3 times too big and I dont have a program to resize it)

Re: Playoffs: Morocco vs Australia

fuckin hell...this really sucks now.

Arazi just pulled because of an 'undisclosed injury'....lazy bastard

I was hoping to see at least 2 good matches because of Arazi playing, but seeing as how he most likely wanted more $ to play, the whole things going to be a whitewash

Heres hoping the remaining Moroccans can play out of their skins

Re: Playoffs: Morocco vs Australia

Yeah, the article I just read said that Arazi demanded an amount of money that the Moroccan tennis federation couldn't or wouldn't give him. Damn. Lleyton's about to break Adrian Quist's record and I'd like it to be against a decent player.

Re: Playoffs: Morocco vs Australia

Good luck Australia! I hope they give Reid some court time even if it's a dead rubber. I never write off anyone in Davis Cup but Lleyton and co versus Morocco without either of its stars does seem a little bit uneven. Still, let's hope for some good matches.

Re: Playoffs: Morocco vs Australia

Normally you discuss how many rubbers a country will win, but here it's easier to speculate about how many games the moroccans will win

SINCE THERE'S NO TENNIS ACTION I WENT FOR TONGUE ACTION

Re: Playoffs: Morocco vs Australia

I was just reading on the bocs ticketing site that we're not allowed to take cameras into the venue...wtf?

I've only seen this on the bocs site, so does anyone who's going know that your definitely not allowed cameras?

Just curious as to why theyre ok at the Hopman Cup but not here....

Re: Playoffs: Morocco vs Australia

i've just read it myself too on the site...that has to be the most ridiculous piece of crap I've ever seen. Of all the tennis tournaments I've been to around the world, I've never seen that before. Screw that, I'm taking my camera...it's not like there's a flash or anything involved so there would be no problem for the players

Re: Playoffs: Morocco vs Australia

yeah I know, I read it...the only thing I can think of is, at the Australian Open some cameras are banned because their zoom is too great. Like one of my friends was told by one of the officials that she couldn't use it because the zoom was too great (like, only professional photographers could use zooms like that), so I'm hoping that's all it is...that's all I can think of anyway. If that's the case, a normal digital camera is fine.

Re: Playoffs: Morocco vs Australia

Cool

I'll probably call the place and get a definite on it tomorrow, seeing as I'll getting there by bus and wont have a car to chuck the camera in if they decide to take a stupid stance on them

So the final thing to hope for is clear skies....
