Re: Doubles Tennis Tipping (DTT) Week 8: Rome - Diffs for Saturday available at 16:00

Gasquet/Santoro vs. Nestor/Zimonjic has just started and Bryan/Bryan vs. Bjorkman/Ullyett should also start very soon. I will have a live coverage of these 2 matches and comment the progress of the 2 DTT Finals.

First game on serve for Nestor/Zimonjic. If Nestor/Zimonjic win 2-0, diego36arg will be the winner of DTT Singles Rome Master Series.

It is interesting to notice that Santoro/Zimonjic won this tournament last year. Santoro is now pairing with Gasquet in major tournaments to prepare for Olympic Games where they will try to get a medal for France. Zimonjic is pairing since the beginning of the year with Daniel Nestor. They are currently ranked 7th in ATP Stanford Doubles race.

6-3 first set for Nestor/Zimonjic.

This means that if Nestor/Zimonjic win this second set, diego36arg will be the champion of DTT Singles Rome.

Note that this match, initially scheduled on Court number 1, is played on Centre Court, possibly due to the short duration of Singles Semis (both won by retirement). I assume that Bryans vs. Bjorkman/Ullyett will also be played on Centre Court right after this match.

Once again, Gasquet/Santoro save this break point played at 40-40 with the no-ad rule. They lead now 2-1.
