    yeah johnson has ran out of energy, but this was a really good tourney qualified and took the number 10 seed to 5 sets which is extremely good for his 150 ranking i expect to see more of johnson and make a push for the top 100 this year.

    Do you have access to the Eurosport player app in Sweden? It's paid, but very cheap and you get all the courts that have cameras.

    Johnson is fresh out of college, and even though he was the #1 american college player things like 5 set matches at slams are a new kind of pressure

    We do, but reviews imply that the Android app is horrendous.

    Why act like he isn't playing a streaky player who does this to lower ranked players all the time? If he went 5 against a non streaky top 30 player I would give him credit.


    Have no problem admitting I'm biased though.

    Goffin is holding on. Verdasco's is throwing numerous huge forehands at him but goffin is getting them back, if he keeps this up then he'll get inside his head and maybe can sneak a break.

    Goffin looks like a young Leo DiCaprio ready to unleash the sexyness all over the ATP tour.

    Damn, might be my new favorite.

    Johnson did well. Proved he was mentally strong which counts for a lot; he's a fighter!

    He just needs a bit more fitness to go the distance and to learn how to hit a pro-level backhand.

    Now, back to Goffin V Verdasco...

    Great effort from Goffin so far. Schedule of play is up for tomorrow as well guys. Lisicki vs Wozi is first on Hisense, Tsonga vs Llodra 3rd. Dolgo vs Monfils is nighttime on Margaret Court or Hisense.

    I always like mathieu.

    In his prime he was taking out players left and right and a beast grinder.

    They better show the mother trucking monfils match on Espn

    Is it just me or is Goffin hiding in the shade at the back of the court between points?

    Is he using the new Blade?

    What is wrong with Verdasco ? down 2 set to 1 to Goffin. hasn't Verdasco been pumping iron with Gil Reyes ?

    Harrison making a comeback, could he win Aussie open 2013 ?

    He went off to compose himself, Goffin is playing well now and verdasco's focus is starting to drop. He just needs to get those forehands going again, goffin cant keep returning them forever.

    Altho as i type this, goffin breaks 1-0

    I'd imagine Dimitrov is extremely weak from all the bedroom activity. Women weaken legs!

    Endorsing or actually using? Looks like he's playing with a the new blade paintjob, but I have no clue what he's actually using.

    Verdasco breaks back with that big forehand once again, thats what he needs to do, i dont see goffin winning this in 5, he needs to break him again right now to really get inside his head and win this in 4.
