Re: Australian Open series 2009

Ooooh a feast of new threads!!!
Why don't we keep both, use Nat's for Sydney and Yavor's for the Aussie Open?

Tursinov v Gasquet looks like it might be the tie of the first round, lets hope they're last up and go for a long three setter

Re: Australian open 2009

I'm going to put some hard earned cash on Andy Murray winning the AO so I hope he's not in Gillou's part of the draw! If Gillou's on his game everyone else is beatable imo. Can't wait!

well I watch him/Muzza/ against Fed last night and he was impressive................... no doubt that he's one of my favorites if not the main one but he have some problems with his back It's iteresting for me to see what he should do against Rod imo.

can't wait too................... Gillou should crash them all!!!

Re: Australian open 2009

I'm trying not to think about his back. He might not play the final today because of it

Re: Australian Open series 2009

Or use one thread for comments and the other for flooding and uncalled-for quotes?

haha yes! *fingers crossed* Which one would you prefer against Gilles in the 2nd R ?

Come to think of it, we'll have Dima "Ted's avi" vs Richie "Lauren's sig"! Whoever wins, we are bound to have one forum member upset after the first round. (and hopefully both after the second round! )


Le Poussin! Faithfully ignoring the haters since 1995.

Ted's avi versus my sig?

1st round versus Dima
gahhhh, 2nd round is too early for a potential Richie vs. Gillou

Gilles' h2h is better against Dmitry (1-0) than Richard (0-3). And Richard is 5-0 (I think) in his last 5 meetings with fellow countrymen. So I would guess Gilles would rather take on Dima than Richard, but it's a whole new year, and Gilles seems to have changed a lot since Wimbledon, so who knows

GASQUET
SIMON|ANCIC
BERDYCH|KOHLSCHREIBER|SODERLING

Gillous is 0-5 against Richie ??! from memory, I can only think of USO and Wimbledon, which is already bad enough!

I'll be flooding graphics! You'll be welcomed if you're ready to flood like mad (but with style). ^_^

No, you're right...it's not 5. I just can't read 3-0 (Wimbly, US Open, Nottingham)
