Agassi striking the ball and serving like a God today. If only he had the movement, he could still compete on the tour.

Meanwhile, Sampras was a sad shadow of his former self. :(

He really should go back to using his ProStaff 85. :)

Just got back Sampras was rubbish. Apart from his serve. Must have had 12 aces. 5 on second serves. His backhand and volleying were very poor forehand was mixed. Agassi played really well. Great ball striking. Lendl was poor too. Abit ****ed at Pete not giving a ****.

Pete said that he really doesn't play tennis anymore. and it is almost impossible to come out and time the ball like he used to and have the feel on the volley like he used to without much practice at all.

Pete looked more like a weekend worrier, and timing was really off. and Agassi hitting 90 mph groundies like he was doing made things even more difficult

Have you seen Sampras play in other exos? He's been incredible in the past. And the time I see him in London he sucks. Gutted lol look I still love the man. Asked him for a photo with me and my sister and he just struggled his shoulders and walked off. Poor.

if you didn't know, Pete has a bad shoulder injury and he could not serve or play like he can today.

And how about the double faults? Especially the one on match point?

WOW, Bryans really kicked butt of Mcenroes. Bryans must been really ticked off at JP McEnroe. John said Bryans are not the best of all time and doubles will disappear from the pro tour

Is Murray and Novak gonna play full 3 sets or are they going to just play Super tiebreaker if it goes 3 sets ?

Don't think it will go 3 sets. Murray seems to be winning the battle to surrender breaks of serve so Djoko should see it out in 2 easy straights! Thought Andy might have tried to make a show of things in the interests of entertaining the crowd! :evil:

Holy cow it looks like Bartoli has gained 50 pounds. She looks like she has eaten a thousand french pastries in the last 8 months.

Djokovic hit the biggest backhand return I have ever seen on match point. He just sent a 118 mph serve back faster than it came for a winner.

Absolutely awful,awful serving from Murray. I know it's an only an exho but this sort of form does not bode well going into the N American hardcourt season, especially with Miami to defend!

On a lighter note, Murray shows his shyness and awkwardness with the fun bits. He could have let Bartoli and that kid they brought out win a point against him. The kid in particular would have been made up that he won a point against Murray! Missed a trick there, Andy.

Andy hit some 50 mph 1st serves tonight. So yeah, horrendous serving. :shock:

But, I thought that was hilarious that Andy smashed down an ace as soon as bartoli showed up. :lol:

I don't know about you, but that was really entertaining. Lots of running and good shot making for an Exo. Hopefully Djokovic will bring his A game to Indian Wells.

did Pat Cash prove today that you can Still Serve and volley on both 1st and 2nd serves even with these powerful rackets on the baseliners ?

Yeh he did but Pete didn't. Pete looked not bothered all night which is bad. The tickets cost £80 each. Wish I didn't bother going.

What about when Bartoli took the court. Murray pushed the ball back to her and when she got it back over the net the crowed oohed and aahed like she was a club player randomly plucked from the crowd.

How many people at The Garden not connected with the event knew she was the reigning W champ. Three ?

Exactly!

The PA announcer should have said something to the effect of the rarity of seeing two reigning Wimbledon champions playing against each other. :)

I'm guessing it was meant to be a surprise, and the audience was supposed to work it out and go "wow", it's Marion. It turns out that they know as much about women's tennis as Dan Evans.:shock:
