    09 - 49


    Head to Head
    Tipsarevic leads 2-1 in matches every time they have met it has been on hard court, 5-2 in sets, 1-0 in best of 5 set matches.

    Verdasco won their last meating in 09 in 2 sets on Hard Court 6-3, 6-3 however this was infront of a Spanish crowd

    Verdasco is a formar semifinalist at the AO however last time the two met at the AO in 2008 Tipsarevic won in straight sets.

    This will be the match I most look forward to from the bottom half second rounds

    Very interesting match as Tipsa leads H2H and already beat him @AO, of course, rooting for him.

    This is going to be an interesting one. I really enjoyed watching Tipsarevic at the US Open. Will Verdasco keep his head together?

    Is there anyone on the tour that Verdasco has a winning record against??

    This really shouldn't be an interesting match. But knowing Verdasco's fragile mental state, it'll probably go down to the wire with Dasco double-faulting the match away.

    What's with all these big name players playing each other so early (like 1st-2nd rounds)? I don't get why they don't spread them around a bit more to make it more exciting (let alone fair for the players).

    I really think so. That and inside his head.

    That said, the Professor shocked me when he upset A-Rod at the USO.

    You upset your fans with that abysmal performance in Nice, Fer - you know, the one that precipitated the recent downhill slide? Please redeem yourself.

    Tipsarevic will win if he keeps this up. Verdasco simply cant match this level of tennis.

    Tipsarevic has such a snappy serve for a small guy.

    At the moment, too many UE from Verdasco. Particularly the fh.

    Nando's 1st serve is good but when he misses it Janko usually takes possession.

    Serve it out x2 now Janko care!

    Verdasco needs to refind the 2009 Aus Open forehand.

    He caught lightning in a bottle that tournament. He will never play at that level again. The amazing thing is even in the tournament of his life he would have lost round of 16 to Murray if he wasnt sick.

    I dont think sickness played a part in Murrays loss. He was just outplayed by Verdasco in the final set. Confidence seems to be his real problem at the moment. Not sure how much the new racket has to do with this.
