Monf serving for the match....silly Dolgo...trying to engage in rallies with Monfils, really makes you wonder about his IQ sometimes, like he plays with a death wish most of the time.

..and Dolgo self-destructs with another netted forehand Australian Open 2013: Matches of the day : Day 2 15-Jan-2013 - Page 2 1198964535 shame I really wanted to see the 5th set!

And what about the tragedy of draws:Palla vs Weintraub
or Duckworth vs Mitchell or Sousa vs Patrick-Smith...

AO organisers really ruin the draw and scheduling every year spreading all their wild-cards and giving them prime slots on show courts.
Is anyone watching Gaidisova Wickimayer now?

Well thats how it works. Good for these players tough for some other. Some time back I noticed a player who was almost always drawing a top-4 in R1 in slams. I forgot who he was.

Gasquet was bloody unlucky for long. Federer has had teh worst draws over the years but he managed to make them look easy.

I agree with NITB about teh AO scheduling. Particularly this PCness to always put the ladies on prime time, on best courts when frankly most fans want to watch the mens.

Rotla: -10
Tenez: 10
nitb: -10
SB: -10 ( Missed )
Luvspots: 10
LK:

-------------

Points as on 16-Jan-2013

Rotla: 4 - 105 = -101 ( I might as well have missed the prediction and still wouldn't have done too much worse )
Tenez: 90 + 39 = 129
nitb: -58 + 27 = -31
SB: -58 - 119 = -177
Luvspots: 68 - 13 = 55
LK: 0 - 13 = -13

---------------

No of correct Predictions:

Rotla: 3/6 + 1/6 = 4/12
Tenez: 4/6 + 4/6 = 8/12
nitb: 2/6 + 3/6 = 5/12
SB: 2/6 + 0/0 = 2/6
Luvspots: 4/6 + 4/6 = 8/12
LK: 0/0 + 4/6 = 4/6

--------------

It might look harsh to put -ves for someone missing a prediction day, but its only fair. Its very likely that some one who made predictions actually ended up losing points ( as we see today ).
