Sampras won Sydney 94 and then won AO too :) So that doesn't mean anything, he will do good on AO if he find his form. And couple good matches in Sydney can only help :)

I agree. In the past many players would not play any tour tournament before the Australian.

Practice can be done on the practice court.

i mean djokovic is robot on the court.djokovic is showman,but he is not irradick on the court, like ivanisevic was.and he is full in tennis, like ivanisevic wasn't.djokovic is irradick out of court like goran.but that is not like "clymbing of Marat" or "rellies-session of Nalbandian".
Djokovic won AO without any preparation last year so it seems that he needs not Sydney.

he needs not sydney,he needs rest for AO.it will be good to take some practice in sydney(1-2 matches) but not to go to the final,because he will be tired for AO.

Oh great. So, he'd get the Satanic Butterfly in the semis there. Welcome to 2009 in Nole-land - the kaleidoscope of unalloyed happiness.

[QUOTE=jitterbug;7967578]Yeah, Tsonga and Simon switched spots this week because Tsonga's Adelaide results from last year were dropped at the beginning of this week so Gilles will be the second seed.

Yeah, Tsonga and Simon switched spots this week because Tsonga's Adelaide results from last year were dropped at the beginning of this week so Gilles will be the second seed.

Janko's only a couple of spots off the main draw so he might make it as an alternate/play qualies. In any case, Dusan Vemic and Mario Ancic will be there, so Nole will have no shortage of players he's good friends with to practice.
