Let's hope that Djokovic makes the finals of Medibank so that he overtakes Federer as no.2. Then Fed will potentially have a nice easy time squashing Nadal if he somehow flukes his way to the semifinals again with his piss easy draws.

The number three seed will never meet the number four seed until a final provided that they both make it to the final.

well he can only meet murray at the semis, and if he doesn't win the semis it means he wasn't the best player in the tournament, just like last years AO.

Nadal's draw will be the easiest when all his potential seeded opponents get themselves miraculously eliminated.

Poor Safin has to meet up with Roger so early. I'm pulling for a RF/AM final. Not a bad draw for Roger, no Nalbandian or a dangerous floater.

Good draw for Roger. I'm glad and hope that he meets Murray in the final again.

Actually, I think Rafa's draw seems theoretically difficult but I don't know how it will actually pan out. I'd like to see how Djoko's been playing recently - he seems to have settled in Auckland, but then those are lower opponents.

:wavey: Hi guys! Ive been lurking around this thread for a while now so this is my first post here. Just wanted to say Good Luck to Roger for the final of Kooyong tomorrow (not that he really needs it:worship:). Theres been alot of talk about Roger being past his golden days on Aus tv, but i dont for 1 minute believe it! Anyone who wins a grand slam and reaches the finals in 2 others is nowhere near the twilight of their career.
Glad that Rog still has the no2 ranking:lol: Dont know what id do if Djoko overtakes him

Thought lurkers like me should show up for the slams to give Roger some extra support. :wavey:

I wouldn't have cared if Federer lost his No 2 spot. Djokovic had a chance to really earn the No 2 ranking last week, but he lost the first match of the year and had to ask to play an extra tournament in Sydney. Well, if you got your ranking up by playing an extra tournament, so be it. It won't last anyway. In any case, he lost somewhat bizarrely. But Roger must not be lulled into a sense of false security. He must fight his way through the draw no matter how easy or hard it is. At the end of the day, there is no such thing as a cakewalk.

And dunno why there are so many people writing Roger off already, he's performed the best so far out of the top 3. The only person who's had a better start to their year than Rog is Murray, and ah - we'll deal with him another day. :devil:

And how happy am I to see an all-swiss final at Kooyong :worship: Stan played great this week! But Roger, don't be too nice to your friend. :devil:

draw's OK, not that easy and not ridiculously tough but the fact is, for Rogi to win his 4th A0 and his 14th slam, w all the pressure as per usual by the media, he simply has to beat everyone in his path!

Muzza has the easy-peasy w no pts to defend and no pressure unless he puts it upon himself, as he thinks he's better than everyone; TFA, whatever; NTG, who cares -- I seriously doubt he will defend his title (he hasn't defended a single title in his career, so why s he start now? :lol:)

Go, ROGI!!!!!!!!!!!! (and take the pressure off -- who cares if you're not the top seed and fave -- the pressure s really be on the No 1 guy, the defending champ and on the fave -- and none of them is you!)

There is no such thing as an easy draw any more, so I'm just hoping that he plays his best.

When you mess up your shot at becoming no. 2 three times in a row it makes it seem like you really don't want to be number two. Perhaps he is afraid of Murray

It's not bad but I personally find his draw to be the worst of the top four.

anon57
01-16-2009, 07:28 PM

Yep, Djokovic was only a win away from #2, although it wouldn't have made a difference for AO seeding and with all the points Djokovic is defending at the AO, it could have been for only 2 weeks.

When you mess up your shot at becoming no. 2 three times in a row it makes it seem like you really don't want to be number two. Perhaps he is afraid of Murray

It's not bad but I personally find his draw to be the worst of the top four.

:shrug:The first two times Djokovic was playing Nadal on clay so it's not suprising at all that he didn't win those matches. As for the semi against Nieminen, I wouldn't read too much into it yet, it could be that Djokovic is not in great form but it could also be that he just wanted to get over the Melbourne to start preparing for the defence of his AO title.

I don't think Roger's draw at the AO is much worse compared to the other top four. If Roger's playing well, he should be ok until the semi and if he's not playing well, the draw will not really matter as Roger showed last year that he quite capable of losing to the most unlikely players:o

I have only been watching tennis recently. The three attempts I'm thinking of are his tanking against Tsonga at TMC, his first round loss at Brisbane, and his defeat to Nieminen.

I didn't really count the defeat against Tsonga at TMC as at the time he wasn't assured the #2 spot if he won that match same with his first round match in Brisbane, with both of those he would have been dependant on Roger's result as well.

I was actually thinking of the two semis he played against Nadal last year in Hamburg and RG as those like the semi in Sydney would have given him the #2 spot regardless of any other results. But I'll stop spamming Roger's AO cheering thread with off-topic discussions now:p

Don't take posts on GM seriously. It's nothing new that people over there get over the top sometimes when their favourite player is in excellent form ;) We had the Nalbandian hype, Djokovic hype, Nadal hype and now it's Murray's time and it doesn't really help that the British media is pushing him so much.

What's wrong when Nadal fans keep believing their favourite player can win a hard court slam? He's been in the SF of the AO and USO last year and won the Olympics on a quick surface.

You can't generalize the fangroups. Unfortunately there are also Federer fans posting on GM who give us a bad name with the things they write.

Exactly.

Unfortunately the players field in Kooyong wasn't as strong as in the last years this time, but Roger was able to get a good week of practice there.
I haven't been able to follow any of his matches, but it sounds as he played a convincing final against Stan. Let's hope he can carry his good spirit of the week over to the AO :)

We should take match round by round, just as Roger does. The best of 5 rhythm should suit his game.

Good luck for the tournament :)

They changed the Rod Laver court entirely before 2008 Aussie Open. I am not so sure about other courts.

As long as Fed is on our mind, that is good enough. :)
