Here an article in French : http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/Actuali...a-tuile/342755

Short traduction :

"Since one week, Nicolas Mahut felt better, his knee evolved good. He was even thinking that he could've play in single. This wenesday, it's again the tile. Whereas he was playing the double with Llodra against Zimonjic/Lindstet, the Angevin had to retire at 3-6, 7-5. After one set, the knee's pains were back and the dark thoughts has followed : "Yet, I have dark thoughts and I could fall in the pessimism" said Nicolas Mahut who was trying to go back as soon as possible in France to spend exams. The Frenchman couldn't hide that he bore very bad to suffer the same treatment as the end of last year : "I'm not sure to have the courage for it".

My bet would also be on Mirnyi/Tecau since their opponents lack finesse and net skills. I would say Baghdatis/Dimitrov is still a better team than Bellucci/Paire, but I don't rate Peya/Soares as anything more than a decent team (pace Björki) whereas Mirnyi and Tecau are stellar players.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

I hope you didn't bet on Peya/Soares as they were just bumped by Bellucci/Paire

Baghdatis/Grisha up a break against Mirnyi/Tecau in the third set.
Benny/ERV-Linds/Nenad also in 3rd set

Edit: Mirnyi/Tecau also lose.
Lindstedt/Zimonjic squander a couple of BPs

Thanks for your concern, initially I liked both of the doubles experts to win but then I started thinking more how dangerous good singles players can be in doubles and didnt bet. Feels good to see both got upset, they were heavy 1.36 favourites.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

I hope Marrero/Verdasco will be upset. IMO Benneteau and Doud could reach the semis here.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Bryans win a tough 2.5 hour match 6-7(4) 6-4 6-3

Bryans had a set point in the first set. In the TB, Chardy doublefaulted twice, but C/K were the much better team and they managed to win it easily.

Chardy played really well towards the end of the first set and he continually out-volleyed the Bryans. But this didn't last long. He was the weak link for most of the remaining match and Bryans closed it out easily.

There was a 42 stroke rally when Bryans were serving for the second set which C/K won.


Easy win for Granny/Lopez.
