Just thought that there probably hasn't be as great a lineup of Friday (Thursday night for us in the U.S.) singles matches so early on in the A.O. in recent memory. Wozniacki v. Cibulkova Henin v. Kuznetsova Malisse v. Federer Wawrinka v. Monfils Williams v. Petkovic Troicki v. Djokovic Nishikori v. Verdasco Berdych v. Gasquet Federer didn't look sharp against Simon so I'm giving Malisse a set in that encounter. Troicki?? It might be his time to step out of Novak's shadow. Cibulkova could be a giant-killer. I think this is Williams's last round in Australia. Wawrinka/Monfils is a toss-up. Nishikori will frustrate Verdasco and take it in four. Gasquet plays some inspired ball (for a change) and wins in four. Kuznetsova lays the law down on Justine in straights.
