Rafa gets Kohlschreiber (Rafa leads 7-0)

Rogie gets Davy (Rogie leads 15-2).

3rd straight year Rogie faces off against Davy in Doha and 4th time overall (2005 SF Rogie, 2010 SF Davy, 2011 F Rogie, 2012 1st round ??).

Yes, check Doha tournament forum, they posted the main draw..

SF likely: Rafa vs. Mugfils and Rogie vs. Tsonga.

Kohli's gonna demolish Rafa^^
He's got a chance if he doesn't put himself under too much pressure...

And Federer vs Tsonga again :rolleyes:
I mean, that's one of my favourite match-ups but they get drawn together everytime and if not, then both reach the finals to meet there :o

Yes, it's true, Rogie and Tsonga met 8 times in 2011 alone and I can't remember the last time two guys met 8 times or more in one calendar year.

Fed is going out in first round :spit:

No way, Davy is down to #41, went 25-25 in 2011, and only won Munich (a nothing event, also lost Doha F to Rogie).

it will be an epic if Fed puts 2M of oil dollars in the pocket for 3 defeats in a row . Better than when Sampras took a million for first round defeat in singles and doubles

Denko can play well in Doha

Yes, but I have Rogie winning his matchup vs. Davy in the first round of Doha.

Also, is it possible Rogie meets Tsonga 8 or even more times in 2012, I think it's possible.

Davydenko will save us all.

Shit draw for Davy who is defending finalists points.

Tsonga will win this event defeating both Fed and Nadal.

No way! Rogie to defeat Tsonga in the SF and Rafa in the F.

id love to see kohli and davy score the upsets, it would make the tournament alot more interesting and unpredictable right from the start

Monfils
12-31-2011, 06:58 PM
I expect a lot of semi Monfils-Nadal

Monfils defeated Nadal 64 64 on Doha 2009 playing very agressive so it could be a good match

Ljubicic lost often against GaŽl so i would be you i would have a bit more respect for GaŽl.

and what the fuck I have or this has with ljubicic ? clownfils can use the time machine, transport himself in 70's, beat Borg back to back in RG and Wimby finals and still will be a clown

it would be good if davydenko can find some of his old form back and take out federer.

it would mean so much more to kolya and it could give him a boost for the AO

nevertheless, it's unlikely. kolya hasnt played well in a long time and federer has always been a bad matchup for him

Why are people assuming Federer will win this match hands down, this would be at the expense of Davydenko who is a great player, and a new season means we might yet see some good stuff from him. Federer is certainly playing rather poorly at the moment and this is as good a time as any to play him.

Gael will relive his 2009 thrashing of Rafa and make it to the finals but lose to Federer.

Davy, lol, the guy who's fallen all the way to #41 and went 55-44 with only 2 titles in 2010 and 2011 (2010 Doha and 30-19 record, 2011 Munich and 25-25 record). The guy is basically done. I'd say Rogie wins like 6-4 6-3.

well to be fair that 2010 was looking to be strong until he got injured

The only chance Mugschrieber has against Nadal, is if he tanks half of all his service games.

your talking about someone that has never let rafael beat him in straight sets on a hard surface and who, if he wasnt a head case had chances to beat him in their last encounter

remember how Fed played on 1st round here last year v T.Schoorel, was lucky not to lose 1st set and probably match

theseth1119
01-01-2012, 03:15 AM
I agree there and Davy will be a tougher first round opponent than Schoorel, therefore I expect Rogie to come out firing against Davy from the beginning of the match.

Kohli will crush this Nadal :unsure:

I hope Rafa withdraws and prepares better for the AO.

I don't want to see him lose to freaking Kohlschrieber :hysteric:

maybe it's the denkotard in me talking but that final in doha last season was the best of 3 sets match of the year, imo

Certainly was. Some of Nadal's best ever hard court form, and Davydenko raising his level to match it. Brilliant stuff.
