    I can't wait.

    I don't want to pick my favorite and jinx him, though.

    Hurry up, Falla/Malisse! You've already dished up some carbs - now finish them! :twisted:

    yeah ... get off the court and let the real men play! ;)

    J/K

    Lacko's been streaky last year, but he did look good during his last match. Hope he gives our man a good workout ... after today, he'll have a good chance against Lleyton (get some of his own back on the HC after wimby 2009)

    You could barely see the ball. Really good to see him playing close to his best level again.

    DelPo's BH is not bad at all. Not really a weakness.

    He always seems to start very strong. It seems to be a question of being able to keep it up without pain.

    Good end to the game, considering he'd not hit a serve for 15 minutes!

    LOL. Boy's so hardcore, his serve broke the net. :)

    Kind of scary if you think about it. :shock:

    Looks like it might be. Depends on how long it takes them to fix the thing ...

    Both awesome and :shock: to actually see the mojo returning.

    Still can't quite get over the fact he broke the net with the serve. This does not happen a lot.

    Del Potro's volleys have really improved. Perhaps its something he worked on, during the injury layoff.

    I know, right? As recently as his last match.

    Some players just make it hard to play your game. I mean, Stan is pretty good. In their AO match, Roger made him look clumsy.

    LG has some shots upthread. I'm sure there will be YouTubes after the match.
