Epic rigged draw lol
Maybe TTW could come w suggestions for Wimbledon matches we want to see. Matchups they havent thought of, we could give them some inspiration :p
Great idea. I think we are doing that already in fact: earlier today, someone in the tournament thread were begging for precisely this match-up, and wouldn't you know it, some hours later they actually draw it:eek:

Will have to bump my Young St. Nick thread from his "innocent" days. Except Bernie not such an Aussie Tomic Ache lately.
 
Legendary matchup. Battle for the real Australian No.1

If Kyrgios is fit and wants to win he most likely will. Anything less and it becomes a toss up.
Tomic fairs poorly against servebots, but this is one of those matches he won't tank.
His game is capable of frustrating Nick who will get impatient on clay and that should give him the edge.

Tomic is much better on defence, with a frequently used but decent slice.
With his change of pace shots he can play like a bargain bin version of Murray.
A matchup Kyrgios hates.

Prediction: Motivated Tomic in 4.:cool:

Like to see an inspired match from these two. It's the most important match of Bernie's career imo. Some may think that an exaggeration, but I believe it is after all that's happened.

Nick better watch out cause Tomic seem to have found his timing again. Tomic's balls are coming off his racket like lightening bolt. I haven't seen this in years

Isner vs Karlovic
Muller vs Raonic
Fognini vs Gulbis
Gulbis vs Tomic
Monfils vs Paire
Monfils vs Kyrgios
PCB vs RBA

These guys are box office :cool:

We had Zverev vs Raonic last year. I wonder who tennis warehouse was supporting that day.

I don’t speak for all of TTW but I was yelling “COME ON MILOS!” and when he won the match I yelled “YES MILOS! HAHAHA UP YOURS YOU FAKE GERMAN PRIMADONNA”

Zverev should have won that one :mad:

I've noticed the majority of TW hate the Zedbot but are totally indifferent to prince Servebot.

Is hatred better than indifference?
“Controversy creates cash”

Maybe it is, Zverev is the perfect heel I’ll give him that. :D

Dan Evans (WC) v Nick Kyrgios for Wimbledon. Hoping Dan’s language is as fruity as it was at Loughborough this week.

Who woulda thunk it. Looks like we won't get the match of the tournament and year after all.

The potential of actually losing to Tomic was too much for Nick to bear.
