    A Roanic-Delpo final would be very interesting.

    Ah, the indoor season is about to commence. No rain, no sun, no heat, no wind: just pristine tennis. That's how I like it.

    Commentators say that the surface is fast! All I can say is WOO! It was intolerable last year.

    From looking at it, it seems really quick.

    Which means he'll drop another 250 ranking points next week and the gap with Murray will widen.
    Seems he's can't be that bothered about it. It's in his hands.

    The reason Delpo is playing doubles is that he REALLY REALLY wanted to. He even called Jonas Björkman and asked him if he could step in, but then he settled on Baghdatis.

    I'm sure to Roger there is no difference between third and fourth when the only ranking that matters is #1

    Blake up 7-6 4-1. If he wins he'll play JMDP. Looking foward to that one.

    James Blake is through, his match vs Delpo will be extremely interesting.

    25 more minutes till Nalbo.

    It's a rather muggy match, and I've never thought of the restaurant noise! Comparing this to the school I attend it sounds exactly the same. 50 guests making the same noise as thousands of people in a tennis match, that's rather weird.

    LOL,,,and yet he is still leading in the 2nd set....i guess Mallisse isn't as talented as i thought. this Nalby should be blown out and sent home with his $1 million dollar garantee money....:)

    Don't speak too soon, Marius! Malisse just bombed 4 aces in a row. I struggle to imagine Milos doing the same today.

    EIGHTY-TWO PERCENT! That was Raonic's first serve percentage in the 2nd set.

    7-6 6-7 6-4 for Milos. Great match. Too bad for Baghdatis though, he played a good match.

    baggy's playing has been gradually improving, which is nice to see ... and so is raonic's form imroving ... PLUS ... in the wardrobe department I believe this is the first time I've seen anyone wearing an official LaCoste headband

    I like it ... makes him look a bit less boyish
    QUESTION: Should Milos keep wearing the headband? or not? :?:
