There was a livestream for it last year and it was really fun to watch. Hopefully this year, they'll stream it too.

Has Smith already played. I am currently watching Groth beat Peers. Groth not looking too good though.

^ JP has played but I'm not sure of the result just yet. He was up a break in the 1st set but then I had to leave and missed the match. Judging by how far along the Groth/Peers match is though, I'd say JP managed to pull through in straight sets. They are usually very good at updating the results on their twitter page but they haven't done so as yet...

My vote of confidence goes to an old mate, Matty Barton.

Duckworth should find this a handy experience. Surprised he's been playing so many clay futures this year..

Hewitt =Legend
12-06-2011, 03:48 AM
It would be great if Barton and Ducky could square off in the QF. They are very good mates and grew up playing each other.

Matty is currently 5-2 up against Moore.

Matosevic (2) def Duckworth 6-4 6-1 6-2,
Duckworth had injury time out at 5-4, I hope he gets a wildcard he played well. I enjoyed watching the matches this week and I like the way Jones plays as well.
