Granollers/López won 62 36 76(7) after saving mp at *5-6 in the tiebreak. Before the tb, Brown/Kas had saved 4 mp (they faced 15-40 serving at both 4-5 and 5-6 in the 3rd)

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

So many weird results, I mean Starace/Lorenzi won the first set 7-6(0) from Becker/Moser.

Just counted that in 10/17 matches the underdogs won
Biggest surprise wins for bolt/jones, starace/lorenzi, lu/soeda

Starace/Lorenzi's win is definitely a surprise, but Becker/Moser aren't a strong team to be honest.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Ebden/Harrison are you for real? They lead first set *6-5 and fail to serve it out after I saw it being 30-30 and 40-40, ok then tiebreak they lead *6-4 and I was like oh thank god they didnt lose the momentum. They lose TB from 6-4 to 6-8

Smith's doubles record in college tennis is equaled only by Rick Leach. The guy has one heck of a future on the doubles tour, so in that respect the win isn't surprising.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Damn. Doubles weird as usual. Paes/Stepanek already out?


Think most seeds will survive R2. I could see Bolelli/Fognini taking out Bopanna/Ram. With Marray you never know. Marray/Sa vs the dutch team feels like a toss-up too

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

I wonder how far Peya/Soares will go. SF or F is possible. Great team imho.

I am glad Paes/Stepanek are out

EISERN UNION

Bryans || Djokovic || Paire || Rojer || Tecau || Pospisil || Chiudinelli || Verdasco || Simon || Seppi || Leo Mayer

Björkman || Arthurs || Edberg || Nalbandian || Hanley || Rafter
T.Johansson || M.Norman || Aspelin || O. Rochus || Söderling

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Butorac/Hanley beat Nieminen/Kohlmann 6-1 6-4, comfortable win although B/H was 15-40 down when they were serving for the match I heard. I wonder how Fleming/Murray lost so easy to N/K, maybe Jamie Murray was the weak link.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Two interesting matches for me tomorrow:
Bellucci T./Paire B. - Peya A./Soares B.
Mirnyi M./Tecau H. - Baghdatis M./Dimitrov G.

Question for doubles experts, who do you think is more likely to win Peya/Soares or Mirnyi/Tecau?

IMO, Lindstedt/Zimonjic vs. Benny/ERV should be the most interesting match tomorrow. But it is on Court 13. No stream Both the matches you mentioned also will not be streamed(both on Court 7) Only 3 of the 8 matches tomorrow will be streamed(on Court 6).

Court 8 has only juniors matches!!

To answer your question, my bet would be Minrnyi/Tecau.
