Sorry Crys, I posted the draw in the exhibitions thread before I saw this new thread. We'll use this thread from now on if you want.

I noticed you already posted it Gooner but I guess it'll be handy to have it here also.

The schedule has come out for tomorrow:

Wednesday 11 Jan 2006 (Starting at 11am. Gates Open 9am)
Roger Federer vs Tommy Haas
Andy Roddick vs Gael Monfils
Ivan Ljubicic vs Guillermo Coria
David Nalbandian vs Nicolas Kiefer

They put the schedule up but not the draw. I wonder if David's on Federer or Roddick's section.

I don't really know what to expect against Kiefer, but hope David plays well. It won't be televised though so I won't be able to comment on the match.

Nice one krystel.
It will be a good test for him. Kiefer was playing well in the Hop Cup last week before he got an injury. The most important thing is for Nalbo to find some form.
The website is poor and hardly updated, with no draw posted aswell.

awh sorry...i didn't check the exhibitions thread.....too busy lately and can't check every thread

Thanks gooner anyway i just think Kooyong is the exhibition warming for AO, so it's pretty different from the other exhibitions he played at the end of last year. That's why i open the Kooyong thread.

Some quotes from Nalbo at the Press Conference today.


Q: We wish you all the best. It was a difficult question to translate, by the way. David Nalbandian is joining us again and, David, it's always good to see you down here in Australia. I was reading recently about the way that you like play your tennis and the tactics that you like to employ. Do you enjoy the fact that players find it difficult to play against you?

DAVID NALBANDIAN:
A: I always find difficult playing against them. I really enjoy playing tennis and move the opponents in the front of the net always is fun but I always try to do my best, I really enjoy my tactics.

Q: David, has your Masters Cup win in Shanghai given you more confidence that you can win a major now, is that a big step for you to take?

DAVID NALBANDIAN:
A: Of course it was a big step but, like Roger says, there's a lot of good players in here playing the Grand Slam and everybody wants to win it so it's going to be tough but of course the Shanghai gave me more confidence so I will try to take the first one.

Q: David, we talk about momentum in sport. How important is it to start the season well in tennis?

DAVID NALBANDIAN:
A: It is very important. More important is when you feel healthy and that's more important than your game and maybe during the year you can start winning matches and feel more confidence but if you don't feel healthy that's tough. Of course when you start very good the season it's very good for the rest of the year so everyone is going to do the best that they can from here.

The commentators mentioned the draw, so it seems to be like this:
Roger Federer vs Tommy Haas
Ivan Ljubicic vs Guillermo Coria
David Nalbandian vs Nicolas Kiefer
Andy Roddick vs Gael Monfils

Roddick has won his match 6-2 6-2, while Federer lost his match.

Kiefer won 6-3 3-2 ret.
I hope there's nothing seriously wrong with Nalbo.
If he recovers he'll play Monfils tomorrow I think according to the draw krystel posted.
