:D Yes!!! Gil is already in Melbourne, not needing any withdrawals, thank's to only two PR this year. Uff! Hope he finally wins his first Grand Slam main draw match. He really deserves it.

Fernando Gonzalez won't play, I guess? Are there more already who are surely out?

Filo V.

The entry list is essentially up through Beck, since Gonzalez won't be playing.

Very exciting, entry list out, means the tournament is getting close!

That shouldn't be too hard, I think.

Now, winning a match... that's another matter. ;)

I'm very happy. For the very first time ever, 2 portuguese players in a MD of a GS.

Joćo Sousa also for the first time ever in a QD of a GS. Leonardo Tavares the other portuguese player. Not bad AT ALL! 4 players: 2 in MD + 2 in QD!

VAMOS PORTUGAL!

Now that you talk about it, last year in AO, Gil lost to Pics 6-0;6-0 2-0 Ret. So, you never know...:sad:

It's not the first time. We had Michelle and Gil in the MD of Wimbledon, in 2009. ;)

mcarvalho
12-20-2010, 10:47 PM
It's not the first time. We had Michelle and Gil in the MD of Wimbledon, in 2009. ;)

And we had Joćo Cunha e Silva and Nuno Marques in the 1991 Australian Open. And they played each other in the 1st round.

Olli is taking time off to recover from a torn calf/hamstring injury, and Darcis tore the arch muscle in his right foot. Both are out until around February.

Any new withdrawals. Grigor needs 3 more players to withdraw to make the MD. :)

That means, the new GOAT Brands is in (Gonzo will also withdraw for sure) ;)

Filo V.
12-28-2010, 06:13 PM
Sad, guess that knee hasn't fully healed yet. Hope he's ready for the Golden Swing since he has tons to defend.

Luckily for Simone, though, he only needs three more withdrawals.

Dimitrov will be the 3rd seed in qualies, after Kavcic and Bolelli, though that's almost the same that being the top seed.
