    Anyone else watching? Anyone else as excited as me to see our boy Delpo back and (hopefully) kicking @$$???

    P.S. Unless my eyes are lying to me Juan Martin is playing with his "K factor" still...

    Finally he's back hope he pulls a 2004 Safin here.

    Just showing good form is good too, tough opener for his first slam match in a year.

    Looks like Delpo went back to the K Factor. I like his shirt. That's a nice color.

    Haha, yeah, that's what I meant:

    . what you catch butterflies with

    OR

    . what you don't want to hit the ball into






    Alright, stick a fork in me.

    Ball close on baseline not called out. Sela loses point and angry. Throws racquet and argues a tad bit.

    I don't think that dropshot was deliberate, but sela will take it!

    Didn't think so either, but it certainly did the trick.

    Does Sela have any connection w/ Philipp Kohlschreiber? Both are SHBH and have very similar serving form and motion.

    banging drums is a bit unecessary after every freakin' point. We are not in the jungle..

    Yeah, at 4-1 it looked like Delpo was gonna crush him, but Sela has really fought his way back into it...
