So it's over then? Thanks! Draw ceremonies are something The Tennis Channel could cover since it can't obtain rights to many actual tournaments.

poor leyton
He never did trust his "home" organizers, last year blaming them for not consulting with homegrown players about surface speed, and now he will surely believe there is a conspiracy against him! Just like Ms. Dokic.
Maybe leyton will go get Belgian citizenship after all

Gotta be some good news in that he didn't draw Federer, Hewitt, Roddick, Bandy, Davydenko, Karlovic, Chela, Ljubicic in R1. Shall I keep the list going? :p

Not nice R1 for Tim, otherwise if he plays well then he could have a good showing...no one in his little section can blow him away with a serve (apart from Tursunov).

Gasquet vs Haas is just sad and frustrating 1st round match for Gasquet concerning both forms at the moment. I hope he can pull it off, if it's just slump game/mental wise, perhaps he can do it. Or is there something serious about his recent losses (like injuries, whatever)?

At first I thought Federer's quarter was quite easy, but it's not. All my favorites in TOP half, good luck Fed, Coria and Gasquet! :p

Once again...Gasquet has a horrible draw after having difficult draws in Doha and Sydney. :sad: I hope he'll be able to pull it off this time... At least Santoro is on the opposite draw of Federer. ;)

Richard is in such terrible form that his trainer told a French newspaper that they had thought about skipping AO if he was not finding his tennis quickly enough. It was just after his defeat against Andreev. There was probably some bluff behind it (probably to give a shot in the arm of Richie).

Anyway, if by miracle he can get past the red hot Haas, there is Novak waiting for him in the 2nd round. :banghead:
And Roger looming in 4th round :banghead:

Puschkin
01-13-2006, 08:19 AM
In theory the most interesting first round match. Those great BHs from both. I just hope that Richard can get out of his recent troubles and will present himself better than recently. If that happens, this will be a delight.

Yes and at least Kiefer is not in Rogi's quarter for a change. :lol:

An interesting draw I must say. Haas has been on fire and Richard's form has left something to be desired but hey you never know- stranger things have happened and Gasquet is a very dangerous player.

I am looking forward to some very good tennis :bounce: :yeah:

I am hoping for a Gasquet victory but I am expecting Haas in 4. He is in tremendous form. In Doha he played brilliantly against Federer. He was beaten comfortably but he still played well and then he beet fed at Kooyong. Gasquet looked brilliant at times against Henman but was too inconsistent.

Allez Gasquet

i want match between hewitt and murray in the 3rd round
and i want murray to beat him in front of his crowd
let´s say 5 setter, 8-6 for murray in 5th
but straight set win would be fine also :p

but on the positive side he isnt defending any points what-so-ever
i really wish hass was on the 4th half instead of that 1

anyways ALLEZ RICHARD!!!

Latest news from his coach : Richie seems to get back in form just in time. He moves better, and starts punishing his training partners again, something he was not doing since he came back from his injury. For the first time, Deblicker (richie's coach) is optimistic about richie's hopes.

If it's not some sort of bluff, it means that it's gonna be a real match. Good. :)

Yeah, I think it should be going to four sets at least, but I'm not so sure about Richard's chances. Though if he's practicing better, that's good - I hope he can apply that to this match.
