In a relaxed group interview with the Sky team, King Leonidas said he was working hard and training as if he were an automatic entry. So yeah, he was expecting to play so was doing what he normally does before matches - partying and gettin' high.

berdych doesn't deserve to win a match ever again after his performance v. djokovic

can he only make it if ferru or djoko go 3-0?
Apparently he needs Ferrer to go 3-0, since if Novak goes 3-0 it means he lost to him and that would be pointless.

Scary thought. But all Tipsy needs to worry about are the simple things.. beating Berdych and Djokovic in a row.

That would suck big time, but we all know how it is with BerdBrain... :help:

and Djokovic in a row.
I'd be very, VERY surprised if he even came near to doing so. No chance in hell imho.

he just receives murray's 0-1 record?
No. He's starting at 0-0 like all the others, but only gets to play two matches. He'll end up with 2-0, 1-1, or 0-2. If he wins both matches and Ferrer beats Djokovic and Berdych, he'll go to the semis:

Ferrer: 3-0
Tipsy: 2-0
Djok: 1-2
Berdych: 0-3

If he wins both, but Djokovic beats Ferrer and Ferrer beats Berdych, it will go to a percentage of sets won. He'll still get through because he'll always have a better set percentage than Djokovic. If he wins at least one of them in straights, he'll top the group.

Tipsy: 2-0 set: 4/4, 4/5, or 4/6
Ferrer: 2-1 set: 5/7, 4/6, 5/8, or 4/7
Djokovic: 2-1 set: 5/8, 4/7, 5/9, or 4/8
Berdych: 0-3

All other scenarios in which Tipsy wins both matches have him topping the group.

Wrong, 2-1 > 2-0. Therefore, he can move on if he goes 2-0 and Ferrer 3-0 OR if he goes 2-0 and Ferrer loses to Djokovic and Berdych :)

Tipsy and Berdy played very recently indoors in Paris and Berdman won. But for some reason Tipsy was 4-0 vs him before that so clearly a tricky matchup for the czech.

I think it could be a good match as both got nothing to lose. Both will go for the win big time and go for offensive tennis. That beats Murray or Ferrer-like grindfests every day of the week.

Janko would go through in this case as well:
Tipsarevic d. Berdych
Djokovic d. Ferrer
Tipsarevic d. Djokovic
Berdych d. Ferrer

Djokovic 2-1
Tipsarevic 2-0
Ferrer 1-2
Berdych 1-2.

Just saying, not that he only has one possible scenario...

Basically if Tipsy wins today he has huge chances to go to semis. Nole most likely will win against Ferrer in 2. So they can "fix" their last meeting. Tipsy beats Nole in 3 = Nole 1st place in the group, Janko 4-2(if beats Berdych in 3), Ferrer the same 4-2 (if also beats Berdych in 2, not very likely). Who would proceed when as second place?

If Ferrer beats Berdych, Ferrer moves on.

I prefer Tipsarevic no matter who wins.
