    '20 AO Day 2 OoP & Discussion

    I'm not here to post the entire OOP, but rather say that Martinez Vilella is playing today. I expect... no, no, no... I demand that as the winner of the 2019 Racquet Smashing contest he be scheduled on Center Court. The world awaits his next masterpiece and it should be televised to global audiences.
    Meet again we do, old foe...

    How can he ever top that one? That was Usain Bolt's 9.58, Flo Jo's 10.49, Mozart's Requiem, Fitzgerald's Gatsby. Yes, I would watch that man again even if he is just using his racket to dust an old rug, but we must temper expectations. Anything short of actually breaking THE COURT will forever pale in comparison.

    Yikes on Frances first round draw. Does anyone know what his ranking will be after he loses in the first round with the QF points coming off?

    This is the site I look at: https://live-tennis.eu/en/atp-live-ranking

    It's usually remarkably accurate.

    If he loses in the first round, he'll drop from 50th to 76th. (His career high is 29th.)

    Paire looks disinterested in the match so far... And what is he wearing? That collar on his shirt looks awkward and probably feels uncomfortable

    I think they said 70-something in the pre-show.

    Thanks Charlie. This is the site I've used, but was confused when I checked. It could be that I just haven't looked at the site in months.

    Have they always removed the points for the previous tournament once the new one begins? I thought they calculated once a result was in at this year's tournament. Essentially, I thought Frances might really already be at 76 and the AO points coming off would drop him below 100. Regardless, he's going to have to really hustle in next few months to rebound and get in better qualifying position for the Masters tournaments.

    Was there a walkover or something on the women's side today? I'm thoroughly confused at Polona Hercog vs. Rebecca Peterson getting put on Melbourne Arena. Please do share with the class if you know why they'd get such a good assignment.

    No walkover. Most of the attracted matchups or media star power is in the top half.

    I mean, that's fine about the other side of the draw. But I can spot at a glance at least 8 better matchups with players that casual tennis fans have heard of today. If I look closely, I have no doubt I could find more. This doesn't make a lot of sense.

    Saw that one coming at least. Ons has been playing much better lately. And Johanna losing at the previous tournament was interesting so didn't expect much here. Not sure if she should still be rehabbing that injury or what, but Ons was completely outplaying her.

    He does that to almost every collar he wears. It's his thing.

    Paire is really pissing me off right now.....since he was my Day One pick, and now it's going 5 sets, I really should have known better. We shall see what happens, but not feeling too confident at the moment.
