really difficult match to predict, IMO! Both played very well in their last matches.

It's a thoguh call, but I'd give Bhupathi/Knowle the edge.
Of course, I hope I'm wrong

If Bhupati and Knowles lose to those mugs, they should pretty much call it a career.

Re: TMC Gold Group: Bhupati/Knowles vs Cuevas/Horna - WWW?

the thing with cuevas and horna is that they hit so hard from the ground and almost never come to net. I think sometimes these doubles specialist teams have trouble with guys who play like this always from the baseline and so hard. It clearly affected coetzee/moodie the other night, they just didn't know what hit them.

It's much easier to play against people like that. Just hit a drop volley...

Obviously Bhupati/Knowles should win but there's so much randomness in doubles these days. With champions TBs and sudden death at deuce, it comes down to which pair is mentally stonger. There's hardly any comfort zone anymore, almost every point is a potential key match-turner.

As long as Horna/Cuevas feel no pressure as underdogs, they have a big advantage.

What happens if Cuevas/Horna win in 3 sets? Then Bhupati/Knowles have 4-4 in sets, and Cuevas/Horna too! Then H2H, but they didn't play each other. So, what happens then?

Cuevas and Horna to win in 3, they will have to have played Bhupathi/Knowles, no? So they will have a h2h, yes? and Cuevas/Horna will lead the h2h. N'est-ce pas?
