Re: R2D2 Shanghaï 2014 - It's a trap !

I don't think I've mentioned what a joy it has been for me to watch Nishikori go 15-1 since the beginning of the US Open.  I will be over the moon if I get to watch him play in the WTF.

That being said, I don't expect to see him go too deep here in Shanghai.

Re: R2D2 Shanghaï 2014 - It's a trap !

I have no doubt Kei will play the WTF. I hope to see Raonic and Dimitrov there as well. I think Ferrer won't get there, and probably neither Berdych and Murray.

Re: R2D2 Shanghaï 2014 - It's a trap !

Kei is playing well this season, Michael Chang has really boosted his self belief I feel.

Amazing....I have two Green Quarter's going in Shanghai, now that I have said that, let's watch them both crash and burn....haha.

Re: R2D2 Shanghaï 2014 - It's a trap !

I watched Gilles Simon play GGL last night, man he is good to watch when he is playing well, Stan might be in for a tough one against the Frenchman I think.

Re: R2D2 Shanghaï 2014 - It's a trap !

Simon only knows how to win when he loses the first set!

Seems like it will be a good masters 1000. Pretty sure all the top players either want to make a statement or to qualify for the WTF. I expect Kei to go doen before the quarters.

Re: R2D2 Shanghaï 2014 - It's a trap !

Crazy day yesterday, 6 out of 10 top ten players out in second round! That must be some kind of record? I guess it increases Murray's chances of qualifying to WTF.

Re: R2D2 Shanghaï 2014 - It's a trap !

And of course I got to eat my words... Dammit Murray!

Re: R2D2 Shanghaï 2014 - It's a trap !

LOL, yep.  Murray losing to Ferrer out of nowhere would normally be surprising, but... NOT HERE!

I'm impressed that Tono managed 20 out of 24 matches correct in first round, what's your secret Tono?

Re: R2D2 Shanghaï 2014 - It's a trap !

Puh, that was one scary first set...

Re: R2D2 Shanghaï 2014 - It's a trap !

Fed wins Shanghai! Another trophy for the GOAT's collection. smile

Re: R2D2 Shanghaï 2014 - It's a trap !

Congrats on winning another R2D2 title and Gem at Shanghai Arnaud!  big_smile 

I went with Rafa to win (may have to rethink his superhuman status) but I did have Fed in the final which kept me near the top. 

The race for King Droid 2014 is down to that last tournament and the top 4 in the standings all have a great shot at taking the Crown from BHP.  But when you do, watch your fingers.  wink
