This looks like a lot of fun

The top half is loaded :eek:

Very good draw for Paes/Steps. Assuming Steps has no trouble with his injury, I don't see any team troubling them before the semis.

After already going 0-2 this season, Lindstedt/Zimonjic face Llodra/Mahut in R1 and Benny/ERV in R2. No way they are reaching R3.

Cipo could actually win a match. Not that he will, but it's not too unfortunate.

How come Nielsen/Marray split? :shrug:

Mahqz 01-13-2013 10:34 PM

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw
 
Marray wants to play only doubles with regular partner. Nielsen still wants to play singles and for this he'll have to play challengers and futures. So he'll have different partners in the Main Tour tournaments.

Nielsen is really delusional. I understand he wants to try and rise in singles, but it won't happen. He's Top 100 in doubles, but nowhere near that in singles.

Tough draw for Mirnyi/Tecau :(

bad draw for Peers/Smith :(

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw
 
I understand not having first round doubles matches on televised courts. But, it's completely ridiculous to put the Australian WC-fest Duckworth/Guccione vs Groth/Reid on a televised court and not Lindstedt/Zimonjic vs Llodra/Mahut :facepalm:

Can somebody remind me of the grand slam doubles rules? No deciding points at deuce right? Best of 5?

Proper scoring system, best of 3 (only Wimbledon retains best of 5)

Nielsen just went out unceremoniously, 3-6 3-6 to a weak team. :help:

Re: Australian Open Doubles Draw
 
Lindstedt/Zimonjic get lucky. Any news on why Llodra/Mahut retired?
