Australian Open draw

16.01.2009 | Tennis

The Australian Open draw was revealed this morning. Roger may face two former top-ranked Grand Slam champions during the first week of the Australian Open as he bids for a record-tying 14th major championship.

 

He will play Andreas Seppi (ITA/ATP 34) in his opening match and is in line to meet 1998 French Open champion Carlos Moya (ESP/ ATP 41) in the second round. Marat Safin (RUS/ATP 27), who beat Roger in the 2005 Melbourne semifinals en route to the title, is a possible third-round opponent.

 

A purely Swiss encounter would be possible in the round of the last 16, as Roger and Stan Wawrinka have landed in the same part of the draw. They will already play each other in the final of the AAMI Classic in Kooyong tomorrow, by the way!

 

In the quarter finals Roger could meet Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG/ATP 9); Novak Djokovic (SRB/ATP 3) and Andy Roddick (USA/ATP 8) are also in that part of the draw.

May the weather stay below 35degrees and the smoke from bushfires stay away! May the tv gods give you some early games so I can get enough sleep for work. The rest you can handle yourself. Nice job at Kooyong, saw you play the way you were 18 months
