Draw Me a Muzzard

Posted by gauloises1 on November 19, 2009

As you’ve probably heard, the draw for the World Tour Finals took place on the London Eye today.

Group A
Roger Federer
Andy Murray
Juan Martin del Potro
Fernando Verdasco

Group B
Rafael Nadal
Novak Djokovic
Nikolay Davydenko
Robin Soderling

A lot of people seem to think that Group A is the group of death, but I’m not convinced. I think the eventual winner will come from Group B. Just a thought.

Oh and the doubles draw:

Group A
Nestor/Zimonjic
Bhupathi/Knowles
Cermak/Mertinak
Fyrstenberg/Matkowski

Group B
Bryan/Bryan
Dlouhy/Paes
Kubot/Marach
Mirnyi/Ram

Apparently the doubles is also going to be streamed/televised, too. Good times.

    lol – you think the winner will come from b because in a you have..

    a. feddy. uhm – not exactly in tippity toppity fiting form. seriously, julien? (though go julien!)

    b. elf. elfie will never win again. dreads you. and actually, he’s had ishiness – so while he will do serious damage, this could be tough week for him. or he’ll win the lot.

    c. murray. hard to tell how the boyo is doing. plus he’s a tim. ’nuff said.

    d. hott sauce. marscapone cheese between the ears, and still with the issues with his knees ? feet? poor mario.

    good lord – you’re right – it could be a nole / kolya final again. (sod may be too nervous…) rafa i think isn’t firing on all cylinders yet. though i never count out that boyo. 🙂

      I’m not sure whether I’m disgusted by your Verdasco-marscapone connection or intrigued (as in want to eat marscapone.)

      Hmm.

    I’m there on Sunday, but for the life of me can’t figure out whether I get to see two matches from one group, or a match from each. Let’s just say that if I have the trek up to Londinium, hotel, tickets, dog minding etc all for the sake of watching Rog v Verdasco then Kolya v Sod, I’ll want a refund. Much as I love Kolya. Hell, even Fed will be ok. Just not Verdasco, all right? Pah.

      You’ll get Murray/Delpo & Rog/Verdasco …. sorry!

        The battle of the teeth followed by the battle of the cheesy dressers.
        Seriously, though, I’m getting pretty excited. I have a feeling the atmosphere is going to be amazing in there.

          You’ll have to let me know how it is – I’m going Thursday night.

          I am laughing my ass off at this. (Which is better than unadulterated envy, and I do hope you have a fantastic time!)

            Fed and Verdasco are at different ends of the cheese spectrum but they both secretly wish it was the 70’s. Fed would join Abba for jackets with epaulettes and Verdasco would free his inner Tom Selleck and get that medallion.

            I’ll shut up now. 😉

    Why is one Bryan dressed up to go to a Christmas fesitval and the other Bryan dressed to go buy some beer at a liquor store?

    And I’m not just even going to TRY guessing who’s going to win this thing; I honestly don’t know. Nole’s obviously been on fiya lately, but if Roger has found his mojo …
    GARRRRRR here I go again.
