Are the numbers painful for you or something? Unfortunately many of these matches may not involve a "fave guy", and the information could certainly be appreciated by people on here, so I will if that's all the same to you.

It's early doors in all the men's matches, although Guccione got an immediate break against fellow Aussie wildcard Jones. In fact, the rather more interesting scoreline is on the women's side, where Dementieva has somehow found herself 5-1 down in the first set. But that is a discussion for another board...

I'm about to give up on the IBM scoreboard, it lasts for roughly two clicks before freezing yet again. Screw it, these opening matches aren't the most interesting... Davydenko seems to be wasting breakpoints all over the place against Clement. Chela won the first set, and Special K had an early break against madman Beck but lost it.

Portas and Davydenko with early tiebreak leads - Koubek lost the first set, the idiot! Chela and Andreev are cruising, up a set and a break on their opponents, and so is Guccione, I'd say he's in the second round already.

Sjengster
01-18-2004, 11:03 PM
i love paradorn, that's hardly fair - by that logic you should constantly root against azza's favourite players (ie most Aussies, including Philippoussis, Guccione and Molik - big serving fixation?) because he has a tendency to fill scoring threads with point by point updates. Mind you, in his case I wouldn't mind doing that...

Whats the score in the golmard portas match and who is on serve

Sjengster
01-18-2004, 11:14 PM
Kuerten will be happy at the scoreline now considering that he would have to play the winner in the second round and he lost first round to Tursunov at the Open... but then, Ljubicic being a big server is hardly his idea of fun either, and first he has to get past van Lottum, who I remember was completely thrashing him in the first round of Wimbledon last year when he had to retire in the second set.

He'd still remain no. 6 in the world, but it would be awful if he lost all those points, I was looking forward to a Schuettler-Escude second round.

Thanks bunk, I noticed, he did come back from 2-0 down in sets in the first two rounds when he made the quarters here in 2002 - he was 0-6, 1-6, 15-40 down against Saulnier and somehow won 8-6 in the fifth, and then came back to win in five against Blake the next round. Come on K!

What with Moya's injury and these bizarre Russian collapses, I suppose TBE has at least some consolation that Schuettler's on the way out already... I just wish it was someone whose dislike we both had in common. I'm not naming any names here...

Golmard with a 7-6 (3), 6-4 lead, your bet looks secure. Guccione is also racing away with a 3-0 lead in the third, evidently Jones' second-set fightback was only temporary.
