Nole Gets It All Wrong In Kooyong

Posted by gauloises1 on January 14, 2010

Definitely the biggest news out of the AAMI Classic was Fernando Verdasco’s 61 62 victory over Novak Djokovic.

Wearing this outfit, too.

I didn’t see the match, but I hear Verdasco played really well and – exhibition or not – this is a warning sign to the rest of the field ahead of the Open. Nobody’s going to want him in their quarter when the draw comes out (which is in about 90 minutes, by the way). Due to del Potro’s withdrawal, Verdasco will play Tsonga in the final tonight.

Playing off for third will be Gonzo – who got himself together enough to beat Tommy Haas – and Ivan Ljubicic, who benefited from Soderling’s retirement.

And in other news, Andy Murray beat Sam Querrey 64 61 in the meta-exhibition.

So there’s that.

Tonight’s matches:

Fernando Gonzalez v Ivan Ljubicic
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga v Fernando Verdasco
“Crowd Bonus”: Sergiy Stakhovsky v Sam Querrey

    Verdasco played perfectly! he won the first set in a little more then 15 minutes! i was quite impressed everything he did worked for him. Also the fact that Nole couldnt hit a first serve to save his own life kind of really help matters lol, he was playing like he’d just got out of bed and was slightly confused as to what to actually do with this racquet thing he had in his had. i was excpecting a semi-good match i barely even had time to finish my lunch before the game was over!

    as for the murray v. querrey match….i’ve never fallen asleep watching a mens tennis match before…but i swear if it wasnt for my extremly painful heat radiating sunburn i’d developed by this time in the day keeping me awake i might have just nodded off, it was boring beyond anything and really i only stayed becuase my train home was delayed. i think thats the reason most people stayed actually because we all wanted that damn train!
