First set 7/6(4) to Bhupathi/Knowles in first set, so everything is still open in the 3 remaining 3 QF. Time for me to go to sleep. TT Comments will be tomorrow morning.

Re: Doubles Tennis Tipping (DTT) Week 8: Rome - Send your picks for Thursday !!!

DTT Daily Comments:

Thursday 11:00 CET:

Hello, this is live comment from Foro Italico. Find hereunder a small recap of day 3 of this fourth DTT Masters Series and a preview of day 4:

Singles DTT:

Due to w.o. of Acasuso/Gonzalez team, only 2 matches were counted for the QF day of DTT Singles and ... only 3 quarterfinals were played since Gigi, number 1 DTT Singles, had to walkover. The cause of the injury is mysterious but, maybe, Gigi wanted to re-join his Doubles DTT partner, tennis2006 in order to train for the French Open GrandSlam. Or is it because I suggested that MuriloBrasil would be my favourite for this match ? However, this is a nice present for MuriloBrasil (DTT Singles 11) who is very lucky this week. He has a bye to enter DTT Doubles SF and needed only 1 match to enter Singles SF. MuriloBrasil, winner in Valence, reaches his first SF in Masters Series and it is very likely that Gigi will lose his number 1 rank in DTT Singles after this tournament.

diego36arg (DTT Singles 3) confirmed his very good shape with a good win over Robin Hood (DTT Singles 7) and continues his winning streak after SF in Monte-Carlo and win in Barcelona. Picking the Lopez/Verdasco team was a little bit risky but was finally a good choice. On his side, Robin Hood can now focus on Doubles DTT with MuriloBrasil and maybe he could give some hint to his partner, MuriloBrasil about diego36arg for the upcoming Singles DTT SF.

Match of the day was undoubtedly the Drikke (DTT Singles 6) vs. Boarder35m (DTT Singles 8) match. After Bhupathi/Knowles first set win, Boarder35m was the clear favourite but the Spanish pair reacted during this very late night session and Drikke won by PTS in a very tight match. Boarder35m indeed really confirmed his win in Monte-Carlo but Drikke will be the one in SF. Third SF in Masters Series + 1 final in Valence: he is a very regular player but needs now to win a tournament. Maybe, this one is the good one !

Georg (DTT Singles 9) could not do anything against Jeronimo (DTT Singles 19), the attraction of the tournament. The Venezuelian showed great shots and really confirms he is the outsider of the tournament.

So, today is Semi-Final day with the following matches:

- MuriloBrasil (DTT Singles 11) vs. diego36arg (DTT Singles 3): I will put one piece on diego36arg since MuriloBrasil is still competing in Doubles DTT and gives maybe more importance to Doubles than Singles. But, also because diego36arg has a 6-match winning streak. But this new Brasil/Argentina clash may be very interesting to follow. Head 2 Head is 0-0 (first time they meet).

- Drikke (DTT Singles 6) vs. Jeronimo (DTT Singles 19): will Drikke win his first SF in Masters Series after 2 losses against the unexperienced Jeronimo ? He will be my clear favourite but Jeronimo's excentricity and spectacular game may lead him to a surprising final.

Head 2 Head: Drikke vs. Jeronimo 1-0 (Miami 2R: Drikke def. Jeronimo 7-3)


Doubles DTT:

- Robin Hood/MuriloBrasil (DTT Team 2) vs. Drikke/vamos israel (NR): After day 1 of Doubles DTT, the favourites lead by 2-0 but there are still 6 matches remaining to be picked, so nothing is decided yet but there should not be any big surprise for them to reach their 3rd final in Masters Series.

- Jeronimo/lucho_coria (DTT Team 6) vs. marr/MZverev-Fan (NR): Slight advantage for marr/MZverev-Fan after day 1 (3-3 and least 3 SRs to 2) but I have the feeling that this match may be decided very late tonight. I still pick the marr/MZverev-Fan team as my favourite, especially because Jeronimo will have to play a tough match also Singles DTT.
