It's a bit weird that the new season already started, all other players are playing out there, but still I can't see Nole at all, even can't get a pic of him either. So I feel we need something fresh a little earlier.
Here we go! :bounce::bounce:

Since this is almost the only chance for me to be a tourney thread starter, I gladly take it. :p

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/sports/tennis/top-stories/Federer-declines-Kooyong-place/articleshow/5429533.cms

Roger Federer Sunday declined to play the AAMI Classic Australian Open tune-up event, with the late decision opening possible doors for the likes of rivals Andy Murray and Andy Roddick.
....

Federer's management telephoned promoter Colin Stubs Sunday morning with the news that their man will use next week for private practise.

Stubs had been holding a place for Federer in the field, but will likely be spoiled for choice in exactly how to fill it. The choice will be announced Tuesday, one day before the start of the four-day special event.

Four players have already arrived: Novak Djokovic, Robin Soderling, Fernando Gonzalez and Tommy Haas.

2008 Australian Open champion Djokovic and Soderling, the French Open finalist against Federer last June, have both put in heavy practise sessions at Kooyong over the past two days.

On their way to Melbourne are US Open winner Juan Del Potro, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Spain's Fernando Verdasco.

Murray and Roddick have put in quiet bids for spots the field, with Murray considering asking for a practise match only.

Logistics could be complicated as 2008 Open finalist Tsonga battles a wrist injury which has forced him from two events already in the New Year.

So we got the black/blue practice outfit we saw earlier. Doesn't look that bad in total but still that won't be the one for AO :p

He looks like he just got out of bed btw :rolls:

I figured out what made the difference. I didn't like that outfit before in the pictures, and now I do. It's the socks. Now he has whites, then they were black and he looked like a dork somehow.

Finally got to see the match. I'm happy with Nole's level. I love how he's going for his forehand so much more. He looks like a real ballbasher - I like it. :drool: Also, he's moving like an antelope. I struggle to think of a time where he's moved better. :D

Nando seems to have been taking an aggressive yet more patient approach against Gonzo, so it'll be interesting to see if he still does that VS Nole. It should be an interesting match. Since it's only an exo I don't care that they're facing each other, I'm just going to sit back and enjoy that one. :D

You have better heart than me dear :o If it was a Grand Slam, or the quarters or further of a ranking tournament, then I would obviously try to get up............. But I need my sleep too much, plus it's way below freezing and snowing out there, and I have to walk miles to work for a 7.30am start, - I just can't do it and keep my work up to standard, and I don't want to be ill before Rotterdam. So sorry Nole :o I am a bad fan obviously :o And good luck tonight.

Soderling retired hurt with an elbow problem after losing the first set 6-4 against Croatia’s Ivan Ljubicic while organisers confirmed that Del Potro had pulled out of the tournament with an injured wrist, without elaborating on the extent of the damage.-hát ez szép.

“Of course, the result was a surprise. You never go to the court, and even less, with one guy like Novak Djokovic, and you think that you are going to win 6-1 6-2.”-Verdasco

“Today I didn’t feel good on the court since I stepped in,” Djokovic said. “He played well, but I made too many unforced errors and that’s it.”

Right and agree with you. As I said earlier, he lost a set like 6-1 or 6-2 against Nando in their last three meetings and couldn't handle his aggression(serve/forehand) that well without Nando's level dropping.

No the Seeding Numbers are based on the Ranks showed on Page 1

I Grouped them together to show who each player can draw in Melbourne

Round 3
One Player From Seeds 1 to 8 is Drawn Against One Player From Seeds 25 to 32
One Player From Seeds 9 to 16 is Drawn Against One Player From Seeds 17 to 24

Round 4
One Player From Seeds 1 to 4 is Drawn Against One Player From Seeds 13 to 16
One Player From Seeds 5 to 8 is Drawn Against One Player From Seeds 9 to 12

Quarter Finals
One Player From Seeds 1 to 4 is Drawn Against One Player From Seeds 5 to 8

Semi Finals
Federer is Drawn to play either Seed 3 or 4 in the Top Half
Nadal is Drawn to play either Seed 3 or 4 in the Bottom Half

I don't know guys, hope his display in front of Verdasco was just a 'who cares about an exho' kind of match and he was really hangover. But seriously, why celebrate New Year's Eve (specially now) when you have a match ahead, exho or no exho. I hope his physical and mental form picks up during the AO, he has an easy draw and should make the most of it. If he plays like he did at the end of the season this may well be his biggest chance at winning a GS soon.
