i have to admit tommorow abit more tricky

Mannarino vs Koubek
Kunitysin vs dancevic
kavcic vs zopp
Berankis vs Vasseline
Michal vs gremel
klizan vs lucano


not sure about the other 3

Iván
11-23-2010, 06:49 PM
in-form Berankis would destroy Roger IMO, but after such a long break I am still not sure whether Ricardas is up there yet.. Of course I want/expect him to win, but it will not be as easy as some of my fellow countrymen seem to predict :)

i dont like the way he crumbled vs koubek, bad sign maybe for the future.

vasseline has a indoor title and finalist cheque this year, 50-50.

Agree with them 3, wouldnt bet on michal/gremel

ERV is a damn good player indoors, that is a 50-50 match.

Blaz has to beat Zopp, I've seen Zopp play, Blaz should wear him down. Blaz should make the SF here and solidify his AO position.

Look for Gremelmayr to beat Michal P. easily, and I would be absolutely shocked if Mannarino doesn't win tomorrow.

Great matches by both Kontinen's, though Henkka was wasting horrible amount of breakpoints :o, but it's not like Harrison was giving him break easily. As said already really great volley by Henri in first set TB set point, was already sure Harrison won that point but somehow Henri managed to get ball back to Harrison's side :worship:.

I would like to think it's because we've risen to Grand Slam level, but I'm afraid that's not really the case.

I'm so upset Michal P. won today. He jumped ahead of Simone in the rankings, that could end up being important. I don't know why he's even here, he was supposed to be withdrawing. I don't know whether to dislike or like Michal, but I was definitely hoping he would drop far down the rankings and now that won't be happening.

Need a Grigor v Rycka SF, with Rycka winning. On the bottom half of the draw, since Michal P. unfortunately already won two matches, I definitely want to see Kavcic make the SF and solidify his AO position. If he can't manage, then hope for Adrian to make the final. And hopefully Rycka wins the event.

thats the match i've been waiting for too..grigor v.s rycka should be good if they each get there

i also think it would be an interesting match if somehow henri kontinen made it to the final from the bottom half and faced either rycka or grigor in the final

Yup, I would be shocked if Grigor lost if they played. We'll see. Both have put themselves in very good position to make the AO, especially Grigor since his draw is relatively easy for the next two rounds.

i would favor grigor too, however i dont know if i'd be shocked if rycka beat him. Afterall grigor with a semi final would be in the main draw of the australian and rycka is farther down so he knows he has to do a little more to get there...does a semi final get rycka a spot in the main draw?

Berankis was beating Dimitrov in juniors already. I doubt bulgarian's game would trouble him too much, unless he plays like utter shit that is

Armless
11-24-2010, 04:25 PM
yeah, he has beat grigor in orange bowl, but that was a different story. I think it's a 50/50 if they both play what they're capable of.

you cant take juniors into account though, both of their games have evolved so much since then

Filo V.
11-24-2010, 04:28 PM
Rycka needs a F at least to make the AO, misty. Whereas you know Grigor only needs an SF. I agree Rycka obviously has his gameface on this week and is going to be at his best to get into Australia, but I think Grigor is the type when he gets on a roll, he doesn't stop. And I think he's a little better than Rycka is at their best. I know both are definitely focused on the rankings so we'll see, can't make any predictions.

Rycka needs a F at least to make the AO, misty. Whereas you know Grigor only needs an SF. I agree Rycka obviously has his gameface on this week and is going to be at his best to get into Australia, but I think Grigor is the type when he gets on a roll, he doesn't stop. And I think he's a little better than Rycka is at their best. I know both are definitely focused on the rankings so we'll see, can't make any predictions.

do you know why rycka's QF points from last week were never added? was he defending anything?

He was defending Champaign Semifinal

Iván

Exhausted? He has hardly played in the last months. And Kavcic is defo winnable. After that it gets tough.

where kavcic vs zopp result?:confused:

Janowicz has beaten Berankis recently.

Janowicz is a good talent too, but not on the level of Berankis/Dimitrov/Dolgo etc. Also Berankis was just coming back from sickness then.

From Rycka's facebook:

Huge battle today but won 3-6, 7-5, 7-6(2). Had some tough line calls and a lot of overrules from the chair on big points. It was kind of a crazy match.

Interesting stuff..

i think its because all the young exciting players are going through and the favoured stalwarts like michal and dustin

berankis, mannarino,Kontinen and dimitrov the young talent

Przysiezny will have SF for sure- other opponent Brown, but see - it's not fair for Kontinen/Brown and Dimitrov to play 4 days in a row. I'm really scared about Grigor, he must reach SF here. Tomorrow an easy, but not to be underestimated Kravchuk. Possibly Dimitrov won't play at his best. Berankis-Dancevic playing in QF, not to be missed.
