Stakhovsky - WC
Ljubicic - Cipolla
Kunitsyn - Tipsarevic (7)

Davydenko - Q
Q - Bubka
B. Becker - Berdych (5)

Del Potro - Dolgopolov
Q - M.Djokovic
Mannarino - Rosol

Things to look forward to:

Past results:
2011 - lost in final to Djokovic. Beat Devvarrman, Granollers, Stakhovsky, and Gasquet en route.
2010 - withdrew due to lung infection
2009 - did not play
2008 - lost in R1 to Murray
2007 - beat Youzhny in the final. Beat Pless, Bracciali, Djokovic, Haas en route.
2006 - lost in final to Rafa. Beat Wawrinka, Ghareeb, Vik, Youzhny en route.
2005 - beat Ljubicic in the final. Beat Minar, Ferrero, Youzhny, Agassi en route.
2004 - beat Feli in the final. Beat Safin, Robredo, Pavel, Nieminen en route.
2003 - beat Jiri Novak in the final. Beat Labadze, Abel, Arazi, Ljubicic en route.

Re: ~ The Dubai 2012 Cheering Thread ~ Allez Roger!

Possibly the most amazing get I ever saw. I have lost count of the number of times I have watched this clip, but I still dont get how he managed to make that no-look lob. Only Roger :inlove:

Hoping for more of that the coming week, ALLEZ ROGER, Lets make it another Fiver :rocker2:

:yeah: Best of luck Roger!
Strong field here, him reaching the semis or even the QF would already be a decent result imho - especially after he's already managed to rack up plenty of points in Rotterdam.
But of course... the more the better! :D :cheerleader:

A title here would be pretty cool, Dubai has a masters' draw.
And it's a really important 500 tournament.
Go Rog!

Thanks for the pics Fed_Ds! I love that 'there is no finish line' t-shirt he's wearing :D

Nole and Murray in the top half, Fed and Delpo bottom apparently.

The full draw:

Djokovic, N (1) - Stebe
Stakhovsky - WC
Ljubicic - Cipolla
Kunitsyn - Tipsarevic (7)

Murray (3) - Q
Davydenko - Q
Q - Bubka
B. Becker - Berdych (5)

Del Potro - Dolgopolov
Q - M.Djokovic
Mannarino - Rosol
Baghdatis - Tsonga (4)

Fish (6) - A.Beck
Youzhny - Gasquet
Mahut - Lopez
Llodra - Federer (2)

Good draw for Fed. Not very easy on what from Murray's quotes seems a fast court, given Fed has a bunch of attacking players in his Qtr starting right from Llodra, but nonetheless none of them should be able to actually beat him. Tsonga/Delpo in the semis will be tough, but I will take those two over Berdych/Murray anyday.

Hope he makes a good run and wins the title, he has a good chance, so :rocker: Roger!

Fed - Llodra
Fed - Mahut
Fed - Gasquet?

This is like a dream draw.

Lots of good matches! :D

Could see Fed - Del Po as the Semis here.

Murray/Djokovic/Berdych all on the other side of the draw. Hope he wins this.

Llodra plays the final in Marseille tomorrow, no? Should be too much for him to adapt to Dubai that quickly... good draw for Fed I'd say.

Thanks for starting the thread Emma :)

Yes, Llodra plays against Del Potro in the final of Marseille. They played the 1st round in Rotterdam where JM won in 3 sets.

It's strange that Roger and Mika only met once on the tour in all the years. I think we all still remember their match in Toronton in 2010 - Llodra with an underarm service in the 2nd set and the T-shirt exchange after the match :lol:

I thought it was cooler last time, this time it seemed more corporate with those interviews in a little ring... still a fun event though!
