    I dont trust him, i think he is fine he always seems "injured" when he is losing to someone he should probably beat.

    No cameras on Margaret Court for Delpo-Becker? Terrible.

    He split sets man no need to fake a injury, plus he looses to players he should beat all the time.

    For example: Ferrer,Lopez,nadal,Murray,ferraro,brdych, stepanick, young, the list goes on.

    His coaches say he exaggerates his injures or maybe he was just tired because of lack of fitness.

    I remember when I plaed competitively I would feel pain off and on randomly, you never know

    To bad I can't watch the freakin match, hopefully some uploads it on youtube

    He's devastating. Becker is playing well, but Delpo is still dominating.

    A pretty tough ask right now.Unless his draw opens up he pretty much has to beat Murray,Federer and Djokovic.I don`t see that happening,at least not in this tournament.

    The way he tanked that 3rd set was not cool imo. People paid to watch that match.

    That's his strategy, he's going to ice his opponent regardless of the outcome.

    Last time I saw so many double faults on match point was when Goran was serving for the Wimbledon title.

    On the men's tour anyway.

    Doesn't look like Lu really wants to fight for it anymore, the match is up for grabs. Monfils just has to put in a serve

    and it's over

    Right - but he's returning back to his best. Could have a run at one of them this year I think.
