Red Group
Bryan/Bryan
Bhupathi/Knowles
Coetzee/Moodie
Cuevas/Horna

Gold Group
Nestor/Zimonjic
Bjorkman/Ullyett
Dlouhy/Paes
Fyrstenberg/Matkowski



I reckon the gold group to be much tougher than red one :shrug:

I dont see Cuevas going far sadly, I hope Im wrong though.

Bryans have actually lost to every pair in their group this year, although overall h2h is positive. Their form is pretty dodgy too, only one win since the USO.

As with every doubles event this year it's totally wide open.

Is there any reason for Dlouhy/Paes' shocking defeats lately?

As with every doubles event this year it's totally wide open.Well they've only played two tournaments since the USO but yeah, not good results. Bob's injury was pretty serious, I don't think he practiced at all for like a month. Not surprising he would be rusty coming back :shrug: I still think they'd prefer the group they got to what they could've gotten.

Gold Group is definitely tougher on paper, but I think the better tennis might come from the Red Group.

Shit group for M/F.

Dlouhy has had health problems I've heard (frequent colds, flus he couldn't heal etc.)

I guess you missed the Davis Cup SF.

I think one Bryan said in a press conference at the USO, that if his brother was forced to retire, he would retire too. :silly: It seems they would never team up with someone else on the tour.

I guess you missed the Davis Cup SF.That, and they don't usually play much before Madrid anyway. maybe one optional but who cares about that.

Bjorkman is :worship:

The 36-year-old Bjorkman will contest his final ATP tournament at Tennis Masters Cup Shanghai before retiring. The popular Swede has a 708-304 lifetime doubles record and is appearing at the prestigious circuit finale for the eighth time with his fifth different partner. He won the 1994 title with compatriot Jan Apell (d. Woodbridge-Woodforde) and in 2006 with Max Mirnyi (d. Knowles-Nestor).

:worship: :worship:
