Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Didn't see any of their matches, but this is pretty much amazing! Forget about singles, start playing doubles full time already!

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Haase and Sijsling, congratulations!

To me, this is almost like Cuevas & Horna or Cabal & Schwank (both RG). Completely unexpected but immensely pleasurable. Hopefully they do what the former pair did and take home the title.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Matthew Ebdens(with Gajdosova) dream run continues. Into the (mixed doubles) final now. They beat three good teams to reach the SF(Lisicki/Nielsen, Vesnina/Paes, Petrova/Bhupathi) and (relatively) easier opponent in Shvedova/Istomin in the SF.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

There's no way Shvedova/Istomin are an easier team than Lisicki/Nielsen. Yari is a much more accomplished doubles player than Lisicki, and in the mixed it is often the female player who makes the difference.

Agreed, and it's not like Nielsen is all of a sudden a brutal force in doubles. Yes, he had a a fairy tale with Marray, but I still consider him as a singles player, and matched up with Istomin, I think there's not much between them on the doubles court. Shvedova's record in doubles speaks for itself, and Lisicki doesn't really have the greatest skill set for doubles matchplay, but the serve is obviously key. When the woman can hold, it goes a long way to deciding sets in mixed doubles.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Granollers has equaled his career best ranking of 5(which he reached for one week in 2010).

Lopez has reached a career best of 3 (previous best was 6).

Sijsling jumped 275 spots to 52 and Haase jumped 109 spots to 43.
