    The anobolic skeliton Djoke, look, he's great, I just can;t stand the dude as much as his "Image Consultants" talk to him, he loses a point he freaks out like "this should never happen to me", and when, well.......

    He's just an a...s, has no heart, only talent and probably, well I won't say but use your imagination, I will not say like he did "I never thought I could beat the big boys", but, well IN MY MIND steoids, he is classical, ask him 10 years from now, JUMP DOWN HIM like they do in the US sadly and he'll say "Yea, I won all of those from roids"

    Djokeer is a joke, a heartless robot, I was never so heartbroken when he got in the last shot, he didn't win, Wawa got more games, but Djoke got it in.

    There isn't a reason.

    This match will be just as boring as the other matches they had before.

    Lol. I was thinking the same thing before I left work (only outlet to watch any matches since my computer broke). So I left knowing that I will stay for Murray vs federer and that will be a real match even though I will get 5 hrs of sleep. I can make up for it by not watching this waste of a semi final slot. Wish it was tsonga vs djok. Ferrer is a real waste unless he's matched up against Murray.

    i thought Ferrer was finished when he lost the 1st 2 sets to Almagro. But I think Ferrer is finished tonight even before the match begins :)

    Because they're both world class athletes who are more interesting to watch than Federer.

    No good reason to stay up especially because they'll probably still be playing when you wake up. You know how they do. They love to grind it out.

    Ferrer will be more relaxed since he has nothing to lose. I'm calling it: Ferrer in 5.

    I believe that Ferrer is going to make Djoko earn it. Should be a decent battle.

    You belong to a rather small/elite club on this. Many more of us think that they are all interesting to watch. The Federer-Tsonga match, while not Roger's best effort, was still entertaining with a fair amount of drama. Roger has provided us with plenty of entertainment and inspiration in numerous matches.

    Seems that the late rounds, particularly the men's matches, have been upgraded (relative to other sports).

    It would be more interesting watching Federer sleeping than watching Ferrer and Djokovic play tennis.

    Reason #1 - the match itself will put you into a nice deep sleep.

    Even an Almagro-Djokovic match would have been much more interesting to watch. Too Bad Almagro choked away all his chances and gifted Ferrer a berth in the semis. :(

    Yeah most of those guys out outside the top 5 don't know what mental strength is. Almagro choked, just like berdych choked against roger at Aussie open a few years earlier and just like how tsonga choked against nadal last time they played and tsonga had a moment to level the match in sets but chose to throw in drop shots because he doesn't believe in himself (unlike fed or Murray who are actually good at drop shots, he's not known for them). If any of those guys could summon the courage to do what djok did to nadal last year at Aussie open, being physically exhausted and hitting with courage breakpoint down, then they will join that group on top, unfortunately with all the talent that is the one separating divide. They don't even believe in themselves that they can beat someone better than them in those circumstances. Ferrer has mental strength, but not the talent or skills.

    Acco to my commentators, Magro injured or pulled his adductor or hamstring. (I woke up in the 3rd set, so don't know firsthand what happened).


    To the OP, is this tennis or just two automatons hitting the ball back and forth :D ???

    That's great, wake up and tell me the score the next morning. Then wake up and inject some realism before posting.

    Nah...Almagro had already served for the match 3 times before that and choked it away each time. Maybe he forgot to get Ferrer something for Christmas and decided to give him a belated Christmas gift? :shock:

    No one is denying his cramp or injury, but people are noting that before this ever happened almagro had a chance to close it out, served for the match and had multiple set points. And blew it.

    I just think that people need to stop idolizing Fed and Nadal as if they're demi gods.

    Your man-crush on federer is a bit unhealthy. Have you ever thought about seekin psychiatric help?

    Why would I? It's normal. All normal people would rather watch Federer sleeping than watch Ferrer and Djokovic play each other. Only abnormal people think otherwise so those are the people that need psychiatric help.

    I'm guessing it's a figure of speech.
    You must be delighted with Djokovic's form Zag?
    Djokovic looking pretty unbeatable to be honest.

    Crawl into you Federer onesie, slind into your federer sheets in your race car bed, and go to sleep for a long, long time please. You contribute nothing useful to these forums.

    I'm glad to hear you thoroughly enjoyed that one-sided beatdown last night.

    How many best of 5 set matches are completed in just over an hour? Especially when it was between two baseline grinders and neither player hit tons of aces nor served and volleyed.

    Just look at the stats, man. That's what they are for. Besides, neither Ferrer nor Djokovic have ever served and volleyed in their entire careers, so I don't expect them to all of a sudden turn into Stefan Edberg in the semis of a Slam.

    I'm a string tester, and while I may not be on the level of PV Audio or Mikeler, I make my contributions where I can. All you do is post lol-worthy posts about how tennis was better when Dinosaurs roamed the earth.
