I didn't know Lu was that high ranked! I thought he was in the 70's-80's!

Have a good time, Oracle86!    If you have time, I'd enjoy reading your comments on the matches you see.   :)

I've no particular favourite but I'd like to see Cilic do well here.

Pity the Berdych-Devvarman match fizzled out. Expected Somdev to fight harder.  :(

Sorry you didn't get to see a better contest. Hope you're enjoying the tournament.

I note Cilic is still there. Good!  :)  And he'll play Babblelot's one to watch, Paire tomorrow. Should be a good match. 

Here's the schedule:

OK, Paire, don't make me look like a chump. I do a good job of that myself.

I'm watching the 3rd set of the Cilic / Paire match, and enjoying it. They both have nice games &  Babblelot - Paire is very easy on the eye. He played a couple of stinging returns on Cilic's serve just now & held his own serve after being down a break point.

It's going with serve at 3-2 to Paire.  BP won the first set 6-4, MC won the second 6-1. 

Oracle 86 - are you watching it? 

EDIT  : 
Well what I saw of this match was certainly worth the time.  Superb all court tennis by both men. Iíve always enjoyed Cilicís attacking game & his inside out forehand is a thing of beauty. Superb serving too.  But Babbleot Ė what a revelation it was to see Paire play again. Hs confidence seems to dip at times, but he goes for his shots, moves in to challenge from the net & isnít afraid of painting the lines.  And an excellent result for him to get through 7-5 in the 3rd set!

As for other things,  Wawrinka is down a set 6-2.

Yea!  :thumbs-up:

I know what you mean by Paire's dips in his game. I saw him at the USO and he got really pissy -- throwing his towel and water bottle in the first set -- before dismissing Dimitrov.

Yeah, the Cilic-Paire match was great. Hoped Stan could win his match, but it was not to be - his opponent Bedene seems like an up-and-comer. And Berdych's match was a thriller too!

You saw some wonderful tennis, Oracle86.   :)   I hope the semi's & the final will be good too.

What an interesting event this has turned out to be!  Other than Tipsarevic, none of the other three were my predicted semi-finalists!   
Wawrinka out to Bedene, Cilic out to Paire &  Berdych out to  Bautista Agut!!
It will be a Tipsarevic / Bedene,  Paire / Bautista Agut  semfinals.    A Tipsarevic / Paire final seems likely.

The doubles semi-finals are between   Begemann/Emmrich Ėvs-Ratiwatana/Ratiwatana
&  Klaasen/Monroe Ėvs- Paire/Wawrinka.

Was there anything off in particular? If not, Tomas should be fine for Melbourne.. I expect him to reach the QFs..  :whistle:
