why the **** have they gotten Verkerk vs Roddick on Centrale is beyond me :rolleyes:

i would have staged that on some public park.

Gaston Gaudio vs Agustin Calleri should have been on instead
or Costa vs Clement

Maybe the Italians think Roddick will be an exciting draw for the fans, against another big server. Should be interesting on clay.

I'm torn - if Novak loses tomorrow then the Sjengster is into the Top 10, but if there's one person I'd hate to be knocked out of the Top 10 it's Novak. And besides, the likelihood of him losing to Hrbaty is remote, he always beats him.

LMAO!! I completely agree :devil:

Though I guess its about name recognition. You note David Ferrer has been relegated to a back court now that he's not playing the (now former) world #1. Like it or not, Roddick is a famous name and a high seed.

Go Verkerk :devil:

Their head-to-head is interesting; Novak has won the last 5 of their 8 meetings but only two have been on clay -- and 2 of the 3 matches Hrbaty has taken have been on clay, so technically, they are even (or Hrbaty leads if you don't count Challenger events).

Head-to-head: Jiri Novak vs Dominik Hrbaty

2003 Dubai, Hard, R32 Novak 6-1, 3-6, 6-3
2002 Dubai, Hard, R32 Novak 6-2, 6-1
2002 Australian Open, Hard, R16 Novak 6-4, 6-2, 5-7, 6-2
2001 Moscow, Carpet, QF Hrbaty 5-7, 6-4, 6-3
2001 Prostejov, CH, Clay, SF Novak 6-3, 6-1
2000 Stuttgart Outdoor, Clay, R32 Novak 6-3, 7-5
1998 San Marino, Clay, R16 Hrbaty 7-6, 7-6
1998 Bastad, Clay, Q Hrbaty 3-6, 6-4, 6-4


Novak leads Hrbaty 5-3

Blimey Hackie, you actually did the research on two fairly anonymous players! I suppose I should have done too before casually making a blanket statement that wasn't strictly true. But looking at those Hrbaty wins they were about five years ago, when he was a far better player than he is now - their careers have gone in opposite trajectories recently, with Novak being the surprise Grand Slam semifinalist just as Hrbaty was four years ago at Roland Garros.

Anyhow... if Hrbaty somehow gets into a winning position, I'll hope for him to finish it off just to get Schalken up there. But honestly, I doubt he will.

LOL, its not hard to find head-to-head records ;) Besides, I thought you posed an interesting idea, since Hrbaty is more 'known' for his clay skills than Novak.

I think Dominik can get a win, he's had some good wins on clay this year and Novak appears to be spiralling down from his amazing year last year.

Now THAT is funny!!

But they could put Verkerk on the public part and Pandy some place where we don't have to look at him... :p

LMAO, my thoughts exactly. :rolleyes: And the match will be on DSF. Eugh! Probably the least attractive match I can think of. :p I'd have to be crazy to watch that.
