Default ~*~*~*~ Australian Open 2015 Thread - Italian Job #2 vs Seppi 3R ~*~*~*~

The draw has just been announced so I thought it it's time to start the thread, plus it all kicks off in only a few days

Roger has quiet a tough draw, with most notable Murray in his quarter and Nadal in his halt (although I'm not sure I expect Nadal to make the semis)

Below is the draw



What do you guys think?

All I knows is this is the place to support Roger for the next two weeks, so who is ready for some crazy, sizzling and awesome tennis down under?!

Let's go Roger!

Eh, Nishi on the same half as Djokoker and Wawa with Raonic. I'll take it. Draw is not that bad. Nadal has Rosol who's already beat him last year. If Nadal falls through and Murray is out of form, Fed has a really decent draw. And I really don't want a piece of Milos or Kai.

Interesting draw. Lu is not an easy R1 but should be manageable. Fed could be dreamcrusher for some youngsters, possible Kyrgios and Coric meetings, although it could easily be Chardy and Karlovic/Robredo instead.

Go Roger

I think Fed can reach the semis let's say battle hardened. After that I'll pray that he performs a miracle in the SF and goes on to win AO.

Yeah, thats the Spirit


I dont wanna talk about the draw. I mean if you want to win a Slam, you have to play every Round and beat the Opponent of the other Side of the Net. Did somebody here read the GM Thread about the Draw? Monfed and co are so... and they calling themselves (here: Variable for their favourite Player) Fans.

I think Roger has a good Chance to make the Semifinal again, for how many Years in the Row now, 12 is it?

Actually I'd like another Encounter with Rafa there. Why on Earth do I want that? Because I really think Rogers new Gamestyle has clicked completely. The Automatism is there. His Backhand is very consistent. Service is great. His Movement to the Net and his overall Net Game is more solid than to beginn last Year. Because he forced himself to go more often to the Net, he's on these Situations confident and he knows exactly what to do, just because he rushed to the Net more frequently in the last ca. 100 Matches. Of course he will be passed on some Ocassions, but that is calculated.
But overall, one of the Keys to win against Rafa is his Return. I noticed, that (what also was discussed here and on GM I guess) his Return in Brisbane were often Flat on the Backhand Side, he used his Backhand Slice/block/chip (don't know how it's called) not so much. Last Year he had his 1st Breakpoint vs. Rafa in the last Set I think. I hope he's doing these kind of Returns more now on Hardcourt. The Slice Backhand Return/block/chip can be used on Grass and for Variety on Hardcourts and Clay.

So IF they meet in the Semis here (and Roger did not have an USO like Monfils Match) he has a Chance, but I have to admit I don't see Rafa in the Semi.

Can't wait for the HAPPY Slam

Roger has quite some tricky opponents in his early rounds section with Istomin, Chardy and Karlovic.

Best of 5 should be an advantage for Roger but the danger is that he can lose a lot of energy already for the later stage of the tournament.

But in Roger we trust - and take round by round as usual

The problem with a tough draw is that it saps the energy. So if the draw plays out the way it looks on paper, at the moment, chances are alright for a semi, but very slim for a win. Murray, Nadal, Djokovic back to back is just incredibly tough physically.

I don't expect Djokovic will be in Final. Wawrinka will beat him like last year....And Berdych can beat nadal in quarter final....
