Well Joe is into the semi finals after beating Mathieu 1-6 6-1 7-6(6). He got special exempt to play Sydney main draw directly...along with Hewitt, Luczak, Guccione and Greg Jones. He has already been given an AO Wildcard

It's really all working out for Joe, I've been making estimations of where his ranking will go to after this week and if he wins Adelaide 111, Runner up 132, Semifinalist 148.

I hope him well in Sydney and the Australian Open, at this rate he may even get direct entry into Indian Wells and Miami. Who knows he might even get chosen for Davis Cup.

This is the only place I could find to post Joe results, Joe's gone through qualifying in Dubai and has already gained 10 points this week which is great for his confidence seeing as he'll being playing Indian Wells qualies next week.

a first rd match up with Mathieu. Tough player, but can be quite inconsistent. Sirianni beat him in Adelaide, but I fear he'll be too good here.

His match record on grass is not bad at all, which he proved today by winning two good matches in Queens qualifying, and I would make him favourite to win the final qualifying round. He beat Qureshi who is very dangerous on grass and focuses his whole season on it, good win.

I hope he does qualify, hes worked so hard for this season and sort of reaping the rewards, but I do feel for the guy. If he does qualify he'll either play Gonzalez, Safin, Karlovic or Grosjean not exactly the easiest first round opponents. Cant see him beating any of them actually...

He qualified by beating Kubot 7-6(6) in the third set. I think Gonzalez, Safin, Karlovic or Grosjean are not the worst opponents, they have weaknesses which Sirianni may be able to exploit, although he will be the underdog.

Good he qualified, opponent he probably most wants would probably be grosjean but it's going to be tough either one he gets.

Sorry I made a mistake he will not draw Karlovic first round he could draw Bogdanovic (a British wildcard) then he'll play Karlovic if he gets through. I hope he gets drawn against Bogdanovic. But considering his luck he wont.

By the way Christopherhello do you reckon you could change the name of this thread to something like Aussie Joe cheering thread or something because Adelaide is well and truly over, Adelaide is not coming back.

06-08-2008, 01:24 PM

i would say probably not considering he's got to play wimby qualies, and if he qualifies he won't be able to play so there would be no point

Nice draw for sirianni, hope he can take that win.

Anyone know what his schedule looks like leading up to the US Open?

Yes Joe will travel back to Europe and play in a clay court San Marino challenger thats worth 85K, and then I believe a week off and then to Spain to play a 90K challenger. So big chances to earn lots of points in Europe coming up. He would have to go to the US not long after the Spain challenger because the US qualifying starts not long after.

What is up with Sirianni, if he had of played Ouanna in any other country a future tournamnet or challenger he would have lost but when he plays in Australia he gets good results, i hope he can make the main draw he plays Jan Minar next tough but definitly win able if he plays well.

It would be good to see a repeat of the 2008 AUS OPEN when he had that thriller match against Janko Tipsarevic in the first round, but instead of losing maybe a win would be good, i thought TA made a mistake choosing him over Smeets but maybe they made a good decision we will see tomorrow good luck hope he wins easily.

In a very nice section as well. I'm trying to ignore the possibility of him qualifying but it's hard not to when you see his next opponent is Jan Minar and then the winner there plays the winner of Dodig vs Arnaboldi.

Phew! Nice one Sirianni.

From other thread:

I love seeing Sirianni win matches. The guy is incredible, reaching his career high at 33 years old and being in the top 600 or so since 1997.

Joe got through the first round of the Manta challenger against Ecuadorian wildcard Diego Acosta. No surprises there. Plays Greg in the second round. Would be nice to see him go on a bit of a run here and try and get near the mark for Wimbledon Qualies. Last year the cutoff was 276. Joe at the moment is 325 and 37 points off that and only has two weeks to do it. Might seem unlikely (needs to reach the final or make the semis here and back it up next week) but how many times has he been written off before only to surprise and the draw on his half is quite weak.

jmf07
05-09-2010, 12:25 AM
Great week for him. Given the points on offer he should be able to play Wimbledon Qualies now which is an outstanding effort considering his position two weeks ago. Not the best way to end the week but Nishikori is a super talented player and hopefully his body can stay together and he won't be playing challengers for much longer as it would be a shame to see such a talented Japanese tennis player go to waste.

Good effort Joe. Encouraging signs ahead of the grasscourt season. He is on the alt list for all 4 tournaments next week so it will be interesting to see where he goes. Halle qualies would probably be the best option for him.

Hewitt2010

jmf07
06-02-2010, 04:17 AM
Yeah I like most sports but tennis, cycling, motor sport (Formula 1 and IRL)and football (soccer - socceroos and Middlesbrough) would be my favourites. Unfortunately I don't have Foxtel anymore and had to watch the live commentary/scoring instead and couldn't get a stream to work. Good that they won but hard to get a read off it being a friendly. Even harder when you hear conflicting reports like Australia played well/shit or Wilkshire was brilliant/normal or Holman was good/bad. Did you watch it?

Hewitt2010
06-02-2010, 05:02 AM
Nah i dont have foxtel either, its crap but the world cup will be telecast on SBS like Germany wont it? I think we will atleast make the knock out stage good luck boys, also sorry about talking about this in Joe's thread. What state in AUS you from im from SA. The best state.

Yeah the World Cup is on the anti-siphoning list so it has to be on Free to Air TV so it will be on SBS.

I live in probably Australia's most overrated place the Gold Coast. The only things we have are good beaches, a trainline to Brisbane and hot women although unfortunately a fair few of them of them seem to love visiting the plastic surgeon and getting their annual dose of silicon.

I'm not sure if he plans to go around again for another year and obviously TA didn't put him in the wildcard playoff and I don't reckon they'll give him a qualies wildcard either. Depends if he's up for another year grinding it out on the tour - if the passion is still there he'll go for it.
