Who do you think is the favourite in this tourney as the season starts? I missed some interesting teams in the poll, but what can you do? :shrug:

It's always hard to get a feel for new teams at the start of the season, especially at a totally new event. I guess I'd pick out Ram and Mirnyi, but I'm not really sure. :unsure:

Maybe we can get some talk going in this forum, it's been pretty quiet :)

Champions at old Adelaide event:
2008 Martin Garcia /Marcelo Melo
2007 Wesley Moodie /Todd Perry
2006 Jonathan Erlich /Andy Ram

Two unseeded teams meet in the Brisbane final.

Verdasco's form is very strong, he's here with Zverev, having beaten Damm/Linstedt and a couple of Australian teams, including Ball/Guccione.

Gicquel and Tsonga beat Ancic/Mathieu, Aspelin/Vizner and Parrott/Polasek, surviving match tiebreaks in two of these matches.

Verdasco won't have a ton of turn-around time, but has been playing very well. I think he can pull off the big double, the question is how hard he'll be willing to work for it in his second match of the day :confused:

Congrats to rgty who picked Gicquel/Tsonga. :worship:

I knew a french team would win but I failed to pick the right one. :sad:
