    It looks really slow and very ruff. Tailor made for nadal.

    The plexicusion always seems rough and abrasive to the ball. It certainly seems to be quite different from the smoother plexipave type court.

    C'mon Sammy boy! Get back into it... Jonesy is moving better and better, both those guys are funny especially when they play dubs together. Both can be hot heads too, Sam especially.

    Jones had no chance, he has no heart. I look at him an think manufactured robot. Such boring player, watched him since 1st playoffs and imho he hasn't improved.

    He is kinda like a robot but he trains hard. I saw him this and last summer and he is moving better from that highlight vid (not saying much, it's just highlights). I dunno what your talking about "boring", his arguments with himself and berating of himself is hilarious! Sam and Greg were hella funny in dubs, I remember Sam backing up for a putaway and just stopping while yelling "GET IT JONESY!" lol. I liked watching both of them!

    Don't rate the bloke.

    Check his record, he's floating wood. Struggling to push past challengers and GS, ATP qualifiers. Has many bad losses and couple of decent wins.

    I'm sorry, no more TA support should head towards greg. He's had his chances.

    I totally agree with that, he has been given lots of help cause of his talent but hasnt done nearly enough. Does not change that he is fun to watch though and that he is a good player. His head busts him down which is why I think he cant hold his highs very long, he has as much game as a guy like Vasek but cant catch the high gears enough when it counts.

    Greg Jones's too white bread?

    Was being seeded wrong?

    C'mon he has huge serve.

    Sure it'd be great if he had some rebel blood, channel a bit of Mel Gibson... or even not , just be up-tight perfectionist (they do pretty well in this sport too), but yeah - something that sets him apart. I don't see a fierce streak and without it I'd have to agree he might not collect many scalps. Need be hungry..

    Isn't he on the cusp of better things, for support to be withdrawn surely he'd be on the way down - are you making that call?

    Speaking of going down Guccione got toppled and I don't know if y'v seen this but this loss is brutal to US college player Johnson

    As hopeless as gooch is, i'm willing cut him some slack, he's improved and matured himself as a person off the courts, married + got his license. Would've been easy to pack it in, rank 256. Imho he's earned a wc with dc double performance.
