Tomic also lost to Hanescu today by retirement.
Yes, we know that!
Why isn't Murray participating? Lunatic!
can't believe i missed Llodra Vs. Tsonga... watching the replay now...
I was looking forward to a potential Tsonga Vs. Berdych rematch after Marseille, but Llodra Vs. Berdych should be fun too... Almost 90s style match-up: S&V vs. flat hitting baseliner!
Brands SP against Youzhny. Would be a great win here for him, he's never got past R16 in any ATP 500 (or higher) event.
Although don't listen to me, I never get anything right.
Brands takes it in 2. Really good result for him - likely to be del Potro next, who he pushed hard in Wien last year; was the best I've ever seen him play.
Has a chance of a SF place I think.
I sense Federer falling to Berdych.
I think Llodra will take Berdych out... it will be a 90s style match. fast courts, big hitting, volleys vs baseline bashing... bring your pop-corn!
Djokovic has to be favourite. Federer hasnt been playing that well by his standards and unless he raises his game cant see him winning the title.
Depo just took the first set against Devvarman 6-4...
Why doesn't Devvarman try to grind him out from the baseline for a few points? Extend rallies.
GSM Seppi 6-4 7-6
That's not his style at all though, is it?
I think Tursanov might beat Llodra...:shock:
maradona on court now with delpo... he's tiny compared to juan-martin... moonballing pretty well though. haha!
Are you sure?
seems like Tursanov won the first set tie break... i hope mika can pull through.
shame i can't see this match at the moment. have missed all of llodra's matches this tournament.
somdev loses to delpotro
Anyone knows something about this Batistuta guy?
I think he played one final this year.
Djokovic needs to be careful....
Batistuta was a football great. Djokovic is playing Bautista Agut. http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tennis/Players/Ba/R/Roberto-Bautista-Agut.aspx
Batistuta was a former argentinian striker, nick-named "Batigol". He has reconverted in a successful tennis player since retiring form football.
I know man, do you see that smile in my post?
Again, I know that!
Football is my favorite sport, tennis is second
did you catch maradona in dubai? he walked on to the court and congratulated delpo after his win... also played a couple of points...
publicity stunt for the tournament, but still fun.
Llodra double faults to give Tursunov the break at 3-5 in the second... Please break back mika!
No, I watched only first set. I think he works as a coach in Dubai
Zlatan must be one of your favorite.
Llodra loses the match... 6-7, 3-6 against Tursunov. What a shame.
Federer on court now against miscellaneous player...
Clearly those pointing Batistuta out to you couldn't recognise El Shaarawy.
Berdych will destroy him.
Be careful, Granollers can be very dangerous
Well yeah, that goal against England was amazing :shock:
but I rarely watch French league
On the contrary. People who root for young sportsmen are likely to be young themselves and might not know former players.
This goal from Zlatan was better http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgqsaDnsEq8.
Bautista Agut won't win today, but he'll be dangerous all year like Janowicz.
He and Jerzy made the biggest leaps. Jerzy made like a 140-150 rank leap, and Bautista Agut made a 100 ranking leap. Both can make bigger leaps this year because neither have points to make up till really late in the year(although JJ's can come crashing down if he goes out early in Paris)
I didn't opened the link, but it is probably a goal from 2004 when he played for Ajax
Screech is dangerous in doubles...that's it.
How do you want your whiskey good sir?
Federer just won the first set against Granollers faster (26 min) than the first two games between Davydenko and Tipsy yesterday (29 min).
At work, so no YouTube for me either. But are we talking beating a whole team, faking the keeper then slotting home with his left? Love the Zlat.
lol @ prediction ,berdbich defeating Roger? not a chance...the mug will lose for sure.
Yes, that goal was amazing
yes, he never defeated Federer before :-?
That shot from Granollers was out. Would've given Federer the break earlier, but he got it anyway.
Easy victory for Federer, next match against his nemesis Davydenko
The potential matches look like a lot of fun!
Brands vs. Delpo
Davydenko vs. Federer*
Seppi vs. Djokovic*
Brands has a fun game and is a big server. Nikolay and Roger's matches are always fun to watch.
* Pending expected wins in their current matches.
idk how these guys dkoker n rafa has such ****ty serves compared to fed and still manage to rack so many slams o_o
Love these courts, but Fed's game is not getting prettier.
Brands' game is wide open for a shellacking if Fed's on his game. Big serve, hits everything like he's slaying dragons, and gets cracked by anyone with patience.
Rock solid, extremely strong physically plus courts that play like mud.
Federer's serve is pretty amazing.
Rafa has a more conservative serve, he plays high % with lots of spin and rarely faults. Also, is a lefty so it it trickier even thought it isn't as fast as some other big servers.
Often you'll see Rafa serve 75-80% to his opponents backhand on both sides of the court, then when he serves to the forehand it is a surprise and he gets free points. Clever. He uses what he has.
