This looks like a lot of fun

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

The top half is loaded

Very good draw for Paes/Steps. Assuming Steps has no trouble with his injury, I don't see any team troubling them before the semis.

After already going 0-2 this season, Lindstedt/Zimonjic face Llodra/Mahut in R1 and Benny/ERV in R2. No way they are reaching R3.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Cipo could actually win a match. Not that he will, but it's not too unfortunate.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

How come Nielsen/Marray split?

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Marray wants to play only doubles with regular partner. Nielsen still wants to play singles and for this he'll have to play challengers and futures. So he'll have different partners in the Main Tour tournaments.

TT Singles: W 2014: Heilbronn I; 2013: Marseille, Sarasota; 2012: Blois Fut QF 2012: USOpen

TT Singles ranking: 72 (High: 52)


TT Doubles: W 2016: Madrid; 2015: Wimbledon, Gstaad, Moscow, Sarasota, Fergana; 2013: Winston-Salem, Sarajevo; 2012: Antalya, Tiburon; 2011: Izmir CH (w/ appleGirl); SF 2013, 2012: USOpen (w/ appleGirl);

TT Doubles ranking: 38 (High: 10)

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Nielsen is really delusional. I understand he wants to try and rise in singles, but it won't happen. He's Top 100 in doubles, but nowhere near that in singles.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

I understand not having first round doubles matches on televised courts. But, it's completely ridiculous to put the Australian WC-fest Duckworth/Guccione vs Groth/Reid on a televised court and not Lindstedt/Zimonjic vs Llodra/Mahut

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Can somebody remind me of the grand slam doubles rules? No deciding points at deuce right? Best of 5?

Proper scoring system, best of 3 (only Wimbledon retains best of 5)

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Nielsen just went out unceremoniously, 3-6 3-6 to a weak team.

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

Lindstedt/Zimonjic get lucky. Any news on why Llodra/Mahut retired?

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw

The brits Fleming/J.Murray had 2 sp's at 5-4* 15-40, didnt use them and lost their serve to lose set 5-7.
2nd set the brits lead *2-0 and lose their serve and the set 5-7. Bp's won for brits 1/6...
Kohlmann/Nieminen win 7-5 7-5
