First Round Match, I can't wait for this one. Scoville just won a challenger and Andre is a legend, but he's coming off an injury. There could be an upset here.

Cool. Do you know if any top teams are entered? It would be a shame if Mac draws them early...

Jenkins will likely get beat. He has a pretty big serve, but that is about all I have seen out of him.

Nobody's really 'entered' yet, it depends on who signs in on Saturday. The following teams will probably show up:

Aspelin/Perry, Goldstein/Thomas, Kerr/Parrott, Levinsky/ Lindstedt

He has a big serve, very good new kick second that he developed, and a huge forehand. He had so many winners off that forehand against Nadal at the Open.

Wow. I hope I get to see this match. I was at the US Open last year for Scoville's first round match. I stayed around for almost 3 hours, but I left I think in the fifth set when he was down. The crowd was going bananas, every Black person on the grounds was in those stands. We were screaming "Let's Go Sco!"

I was too emotionally drained and had to go home when it looked like he might lose. Low and behold, I get home and get online and I see that he won. I was too angry with myself for not sticking it out. Some support figure I am. I get too involved in these matches.

They've already scheduled the match on the tournament website. It will be the featured night match on Monday. :)

God I can't believe I'm going against Andre, but I want Scoville to win. He's 19, and this could put him in a better place if he wins.

I like Agassi taking Jenkins to school, a little tennis 101!

Bones08
02-10-2006, 05:03 PM
I don't think he'll be taking him to school. It depednds on which one of them both show up. If Andre loses, I wonder what his mind will tell him. It's interesting to know how the man thinks about things now.

Anyone can beat anyone on any given day on the men's tour these days. With that common knowledge in mind, I wouldn't even consider it an upset if Scoville wins.

Well, Agassi better whomp that *** because I've got tickets for the semis and finals, and Agassi seems to have an easy road to meet perhaps Hewitt in the semis. It all depends on how these guys are feeling right now...Agassi didn't look good in Delray Beach, Hewitt looked terrible in the Aussie Open, so I hope they've pulled it together. I'm sure Andre has.

Bones08

Hewitt might play Joachim, and if Joachim is playing well then he should win that match.

Hewitt might play Joachim, and if Joachim is playing well then he should win that match.

Joachim is just coming back from a long injury break.

Not only that, but it's was a shoulder injury, so it's going to most affect his best weapon - his serve.

There is NO way in heck that, in his first tournament back, that he's going to be playing "well". Maybe well enough to win a match or two, but I will be VERY surprised if he can beat Hewitt in the later rounds.

02-11-2006, 01:04 AM
Even if Hewitt isn't playing his best, I see him getting to the semis with Agassi. I see Roddick and Blake on the other end, or Roddick and Robredo. Assuming Roddick is healthy. Damn!

Anyone can beat anyone on any given day on the men's tour these days. With that common knowledge in mind...."Common knowledge???"

I think you could say this for the top 150. But when someone ranked #400 beats a top 50 player ... it's a fluke (or a sign the guy at 300 is about to become significant).

Doubt it, there usually aren't cameras in San Jose until Thursday at the earliest. By the way, Joachim has been in San Jose for a few days already, practicing and such. Don't be surprised if he does play well (very well) in his first tournament back.

I don't know much about these doubles teams, but McEnroe's doubles partner is the best out of that group, and McEnroe himself is one of the best doubles players of all time, so let's go Mac!

I'll be at the Agassi/Jenkins match tonight as well. Pretty close up too :)

Does anyone know if they allow cameras in? Is it something where u just can take pics w/ the flash on or not during play? I can't find their camera policy.

Agassi pulled out, unfortunately. Scoville will play a lucky loser.

Scoville... is that a name?

Yes.
It is the name given to the units measuring the "hotness" / pungency of chili peppers.
A jalepeno pepper might have a couple thousand Scoville units...and Thai chili might have over 100,000 Scoville units. A habanero even more. {WARNING: I do not know what I'm talking about...I actually pulled those numbers directly from my butt.}

Yer right, Scoville sounds less like the name of a person than a town....like Greenville, Bienville, Hicksville, etc.

But in these parts, Scoville Jenkins has a pretty cool ring to it. Strong to quite strong Q rating, especially with that hair.

Is it just an anglophone thing to sometimes use a family surname as a child's first name? More common since the seventies. Lots of younger people with two last names nowadays.
i.e. Lleyton Hewitt? Taylor Dent? Hamilton Jordan? Graydon Oliver?

Yeah, and I've never seen him play in person... :(

Oh well...tonight I'll be seeing these 2 matches:

Joachim Johansson (SWE) vs (Q) Sam Warburg (USA)

followed by

Andy Murray (GBR) vs (WC) Mardy Fish (USA)

Funny thing is, I remember when Sam Warburg was a top junior here in NorCal tennis. Saw him play when he was in high school. I saw a couple of his matches during some WTT events and he seems decent. Good to see him qualify for an ATP tournament. I get the feeling Johansson is going to own him, though. :-\

Scoville on Andre:

I was preparing for how big Agassi hits the ball and his fast pace," Jenkins said. "(Rettenmaier) is a totally opposite player, coming to the net more. He played extremely well and volleyed great. I credit him; he made a lot of tough shots.

"Agassi is one of the greatest, and I grew up watching him. I always wanted to play him as a kid. Hopefully, I'll get another shot."
