2013 Halle ATP 250 (June 10-16)
« on: June 08, 2013, 10:17:05 AM »


Wikipedia article with the draw.

Tough top half. Federer-Janowicz in potential QF. Then in the next section Haas will play on R16 against Gulbis or good grasscourter Baghdatis. And there's Raonic or Brands (or Monf or qualifier) waiting in the QF.

Bottom half looks much easier. Kohli is a good grasscourter and beat Nishikori and Gasquet to make the final.

My pick for the title is Haas, he's been playing well this year. Federer seems a bit inconsistent and maybe not so hungry for a Halle title, remember last year when he lost to Haas and won at Wimbledon three weeks later. Haas definitely wants to win in Germany.

And thanks to masterclass for posting this at the Castle.

Rafa will skip Halle. So seems that we'll have to wait until Wimby to see his grass form.

that is actually good news in other ways too:
 
that means that roger`s back issues may be over.
 
 
he will be back at wimby in full force.

With Fed in bad form, everyone has a chance here. Gasquet, Kohli, Youzhny, Raonic, Gulbis, and Haas could all win the title.

Really interesting that Fed-Haas are playing doubles  :) I don't remember the last time he played doubles besides in Davis Cup.

He played with Wawrinka in the Olympics. But they didn't play any warmups together. Last regular tournament ahead of that was Indian Wells 2011, also with Wawrinka.

Last time he played with someone besides Wawrinka (DC included) was Halle 2010, with Yves Allegro. Last time he played with someone not from Switzerland was in Rome 2003 (!) with Paradorn Srichaphan.

Tough draw for Tommy to defend his title.

Fed-Haas doubles  :gleam:

Also Nadal pulled out...

either tommy or roger should be able to snatch the title in halle.
 
 
 
last year tommy came in here at #87.
 
 
now he comes in at #11. he is also playing reasonably well at the moment. so his actual/current form is good from what I can see.

I believe Haas/Federer just lost in 1R. My feed crashed at 7-6, 5-3 0-30. Anyone catch the end?

Some nice points in doubles. Good to see Fed/Haas playing together, they had great time on the court.

They started great taking an early break but more experienced Melzer/Petzch prevailed.

Thanks for the schedule, Swish.  There are some good matches today, and I can actually watch some too! Hurrah!

My ones to watch are Raonic/Monfils, Petzchner/Janowicz  &  Gulbis/Baghdatis. 

EDIT:  I couldn't watch the first match, but note it was a straight sets win by Monfils.
Petzcher not playing - someone called Basic instead, and MB took the first set tie break. Good play by him.  Now broken though, and Janowicz serving 3-1 up.   It's quite strange - the court is already partly in shade.   JJ looks more in control here, serving well. Up 4-1.

I didn't know this man Basic at all, Williamchung7, but he played a good match. Sorry your man wasn't able to clinch it in the tie break. But he was up a break earlier in the set & should have won the 3rd set.

I'm watching Gulbis / Baghdatis now. I really like EG's game. Nice to see sunshine there. They've got rain at Queens.
