Schedule is out for day 3.

1. Samantha Stosur (AUS) [17]
vs.
Tsvetana Pironkova (BUL) [33]

Trust me, this is going to be interesting.

Matthew Ebden (AUS) [33]
vs.
Vasek Pospisil (CAN) [28]


3. Sam Querrey (USA) [33]
vs.
Ernests Gulbis (LAT) [23]

Anyone still for Ernie?

vs.
Richard Gasquet (FRA) [9]


5.
Jeremy Chardy (FRA) [29]
vs.
Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR) [33]


6. Mikhail Youzhny (RUS) [14]
vs.
Florian Mayer (GER) [33]

7. Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI) [8]

1. Prinkova
2. Pospisil
3. Gulbis
4. Gasquet
5. Chardy
6. Mayer
7. Stan wawrinka

Though I actually fancy Falla for an upset. Stan has pressure defending points here.

Stosur (I know Stosur traditionally chokes big time in front of home crowd, and that Pironkova won Sydney last week and owns Venus in Wimbledon, but Melbourne courts are slow and high bouncing)
Pospisil
Gasquet
Gulbis
Youzhny
Chardy
Stan

lol Tenez smiley

Jinxing of course makes absolutely no difference, I sometimes make light hearted 'jinxy' posts showing my support for Rafa; and sometimes I am worried for a match and naturally pessimistic which comes across as jinxy.

Meet Nadal's other half in snooker.  Difference is, this ref stopped him.

I just remembered I had not posted my predictions yet. I know nothing of the scores so far nor do I know the order of play. Can you please recognize those where matches have not yet started? Thx.

Stosur, Pospisil, Gulbis, Gasquet, Chardy, Mayer, Wawrinka.

Just checked the scores. Gasquet and Mayer are playing already. How about this: you recognize my Gasquet pick (he is a break down in the first set, so reasonable to assume I am not cheating) and ignore my Mayer pick (he took the first set, so it would not be fair to use that pick).

Thanks guys, appreciate it.  I am just hoping that Youzhny wins, that way I just get zero points regardless, and that will be the end of the summerblues-the-cheat controversy.

Stepped away for a bit, and by the time I got back I see Nole bageled Mayer.  This will be a quick day at the office I think.  Good for you nitb too, you will not have to be up for too long.

Jinx failure alert!
Gulbis out in 3 sets.

Laver in the evening absolutely as slow, if not slower than before.
It says a lot when Stan can run a drop shot down from being behind the baseline on the diagonal opposite side...

Pospisil is such a great competitor, really good attitude. Levels the match to 1:1 in the TB.

Pospisil looks cooked and/or in some kind of physical trouble.
Hang in Vasek!
