11-05-2003, 08:17 PM
Thanks for the info Bunk......well, of course, my own "dream" final would be Coria/Nalbandian but I realise this is unlikely to happen :) I can still dream though can't I?

11-05-2003, 08:18 PM
of course you can dream! :)

11-05-2003, 08:20 PM

What's the word on Nalbandian... he playing or not? Or is he waiting till the day of to decide?

11-05-2003, 08:25 PM
I have to admit, if this draw isn't rigged, then Roddick is one hell of a lucky man. The other 3 GS champions in one group, for heaven's sake? Aaarrghh, and Nalbandian is there too! Do you know, I seriously reckon Federer could end up with the wooden spoon there.

Meanwhile, other group: will be interesting to see Coria play Roddick on hard for the first time, and Schuettler should still cause him a few problems, but otherwise it's an absolute breeze.

He's still in Barcelonan getting treament on the wrist, - he's trying really hard to be in Houston and practising every day but the recovery is quite slow so all I can do is keep my fingers crossed for him :) Guess he'll leave it til the very last minute to decide!

I have to admit, if this draw isn't rigged, then Roddick is one hell of a lucky man.

there was a 1 in 8 chance of any particular combination happening. Those are pretty good odds, especially considering it was deemed that at least two of not three of the options would be to Andy's favor, that means that there was .25-.375 that this would happen. With those stats, it's a little difficult to cry foul

as for David..... hopefully he can play!!

11-05-2003, 08:40 PM
Ridiculous... hard to think there was no cheating... very bad... or Roddick is the God of Luck, or something is wrong here...

11-05-2003, 09:47 PM
I'm Andy fan, but his draw looks rediciosly easy!! He's lucky!!

The Blue group is just :eek:

Poor Roger!! Well you'll have another chance to try to beat David!!

11-05-2003, 10:20 PM
How luck is Roddick? That group is so easy!
A hell group for everyone involved in group B

It will be VERY hard for Ferrero to overtake Roddick now

11-05-2003, 11:49 PM
omg andy has really a easy group! :eek: :mad:
vamos Juanqui,beat anyone and prove them u r the real n.1! :devil: :kiss:

Darn it. David is in Roger's group. Hopefully Roger will finally get that first win over David. :rolleyes:

11-06-2003, 12:55 AM
I am praying for that too. A win over his nemesis will surely boost his confidence.

Federer has the worst draw of all.

does anyone else think that if federer wins, HE deserves to be #1-- that draw!!! yikes. if andy or juan carlos win-- they're #1... jcf will have earen a new fan if he gets through this... his draw if crazy (same draw as federer--lol).

11-06-2003, 05:50 AM
Moya is certainly in the group with the most difficult players; The three other players are in top condition. He has no luck with his draw
Ferrero , as always, has more luck. Agassi, Nadbandlian haven't played since a while, so... no big danger. Federer is the only one who can be a threat for him.

11-06-2003, 05:56 AM
It's extremely difficult enough for Roger to claim that year end world number one without this :eek: :eek: :eek: draw. As if his chance is not slim enough. :sad:

Well all the more good luck wishes to Roger then!!

(and to 3 other guys too ;) )

allleezzz Roger!!

It is more of a nightmare draw for Federer then Ferrero, Federer has a losing record against all 3 players. He has not won a match against 2 of them.
His overall record against his group is 1-10.

If he wins it, it will take an amazing effort

Well isn't it funny that the Nr. 3 seed is the underdog in his group?? Well maybe that's his chance as really nobody is expecting anything from him now (at least I don't). And his chances for the top spot are almost inexistent as well. So maybe he finally will be able to play his tennis and find that on switch and clear his head out. Don't we all (well most) agree that he has the game to beat everybody - when he's on nobody has a chance against him. So will see in 10 days who has the last laugh....

Quite a good draw for rainer, i think.

Just wanted to give this a little bump before TMC is forgotten. Doris, you were right on the money there! :-)
