Delighted about Dimitrov advancing - him vs Flash could be an excellent game, might have to find a stream for that one.
If you can find a dutch proxy, go to nos.nl --> sport --> live and then it's on the right. Excellent quality, but only available for dutch IP.
Coverage of this event has now begun on Sky Sports in the UK (in case anyone doesn't know). I'll have to wait till after work to catch it, but looking forward watching Federer tonight.
Thanks. It looks like Sky Sports might be showing the later stages of this one, so might be able to catch it on the tellybox.
gasquet looking nonchalant to start the bagdhatis match.
Looks like we have a Baghdatis-Dimitrov rematch! Should be a good one.
I wanted Flash
Looks like Delpo's going to have a breeze to the finals.
What, because Gasquet would have offered any sort of challenge?
Unless Gasquet is playing Murray, he WILL lose to anyone ranked above him. It's like clockwork.
Gulbis could beat him
How is Gulbis playing so far?
Gulbis is crushing the ball left and right. Some scary hitting is going on out there.. impressive stuff.
Delpo serving at 5-6 1st set.
Lol at the gulbisFH
6 minibreaks in TB so far, set point JMdP
Takes it - 7 minibreaks in total. 6 of them in the first 7 points...
No, he would've breezed through anyway. Gasquet's got a nice weapon, but he has to have everything working for him to beat anyone consistently in the top 20. He melts down on mistakes.
And I'm waiting for the eventual Ernie getting broken so he can go party early.
It's not a joint WTA/ATP tourn so he has nothing to knock off early for...
It's Rotterdam, so he doesn't have to wait for Cibulkova. There's still the red light district.
And just like clockwork, there's the break.
i'm sure he has better options than wta ladies...
GOOOOOOOOO delpooooooo :twisted:
You forgot about Vika <3
And yes, go Delps. Hoping for a SF of him vs Baby Fed
Vika's has a cute ass, but he gets better than her on a Tuesday night.
It's Thursday though, so I guess all bets are off.
Hell, Vika is probably a 7 or 8 that he gives to a sex starved buddy while he takes the dimes.
baghdatis d gasquet 6-4, 6-4
baghy can play awesome. I remember how he beat federer at indian wells
back in 2010. that was sensational tennis.
by the way, baghy was trained in france when he was junior. so he probably
knows gasquet's game very well. head to head is 3-0 now.
two of my favorite ball strikers.
Anybody got a good stream for Fed's match? Mine's freezing up a lot.
i tried a few, all got this annoying strucks , try this
whoa what a backhand beauty top class rogi
not sure it's going to be worth watching this much longer... it's first class pwnage from pwnerer
Is it just me or does Federer's serve motion look totally different?
If I had the software or the time, I'd be really curious to see a video comparison over the years of Federer's serve motion.
Get one point from the deuce court from every Australian Open, Indian wells...whatever...from the past 6-7 years and see how his motion has changed.
It has changed over the years I think. It's been pretty much the same the last few years, but if you compare his serve from say 2004 to now, it is different. I'm not sure it's "totally different, but it is different. I think he had a higher toss in say 2004. He delayed it more. Almost like Baghdatis's motion, but without the pump before the serve IMO.
In Fed's early years, there was less swing of the body, i.e. he does lean back as much as he does now. And lately I feel like that his service posture before he throws the ball is a bit different. The back doesn't bend down as much and he doesn't stoop so low.
whom the dutch crowd is supporting lol
So far the GOAT took an average of 1 hour to win each of his first two matches. Very nice.
Beautiful tennis, Rogi!
pretty boring match, The Bakker had a solid junior career, but now he looks like another average player
... of mine too.
i wish i saw the match...
anyway, a top 10 victory for marcos is great (especially as gasquet was 15-1 coming into this match). now i hope he takes his revenge on dimitrov in the QF... pame !
guilbis really screwed up his forehand
Lining up as another RF versus JMDP final just like last year, but with a more competitive Del Potter.
Rog hitting some beauties last night; hope Baby Rog has been taking notes.
gulbis should have won that one...
It looks to me like Marcos has lost at least 15-20 lbs.
He looks so much fitter than last year.
I guess marriage and impending fatherhood made him get it together
Baby Fed got the break in the 2nd, looking to take it to 3 sets. Anyone watching this?
break broken, on serve now.
