It's a lock and forget team really. You start with a team and have them for the entire tournament :).

Team has gone unique, especially for Women's :-*.

Title: Re: Aus Open dt
Post by: Alex7089 on January 12, 2011, 07:28:59 PM
I went with Wozniacki, Stosur and Clijsters for my women. Wozniacki I have followed since my sister and I saw an interview she did a couple of years ago, she was an up and comer then, trying to break into the top 10, now she is world number 1 :O
Title: Re: Aus Open dt
Post by: CrowsFan on January 12, 2011, 07:37:58 PM
Well here is my team. Just went for players I know and also like :)

Mens:
Nadal (hate him but he is too good), Djokovic, Tsonga (one of my favourite players)
Nalbandian, Del Potro, Nieminen, Bellucci, Gasquet
Womens:
Wozniacki, Stosur, Henin
Kuznetsova, Petkovic, Kerber, Hantuchova, Dulko
Title: Re: Aus Open dt
Post by: j959 on January 17, 2011, 10:33:51 AM
yeah, similar to CF - a couple were hard like Soderling, he's been in good form of late but went with tired and proven mainly.

Mens:
Federer, Nadal, Djokovic.
Troicki, Gasquet, Simon, Chela, Karlovic (big serve but might be inj).

Womens:
Stosur (for the homegrown), Clijsters, Henin.
Hantuchova (:-*), A. Bondarenko (:-*), Groth, L Safarova, Kuznetsova.

*Nb: wish some special HP criteria picks.   ;)

I almost went Leyton but Nalbandian first up is a tough ask - if he gets thru he'll be a chance for the quarters.

Indeed. If she doesn't play though :-*.

Title: Re: Aus Open dt
Post by: Justin Bieber on January 17, 2011, 02:29:20 PM
Kuznetsova and Hantuchova I noticed is a common theme in most of our teams :P.

Monfies is having a close call. Went 2 sets down before levelling 2-2 and should take the fifth.
Title: Re: Aus Open dt
Post by: CrowsFan on January 17, 2011, 02:32:25 PM
