Baggy~Daveed... we're gonna be here for a while...

 

Too bad about Venus' slow start, having only just started to pick it up towards the end of the match.

Maria looked too sharp.

Just gotta be impressed with Kimiko's dedication.  I can still remember watching her Wimbledon semi vs. Steffi in '96!

And just one of the wacky moments during the match.

Man...That Venus/Maria match was tough to watch. Only thing to be encouraged about his how Venus finised the match. I'm disappointed though.

Missle Milos vs Kohly tonight should be fantastic. I expect big things from Milos this year so I'm verrry excited for this match

Never knew NT hated Serena so much laugh.gif

Should probably stay away from this thread.
post #72 of 8514

I was ever a Serena fan, but that's nothing new. 

 

Quell ~ Yes... expecting a break-out year for Milos... with Tomic as well (though I still don't like the guy).  

 

Interestingly, New Balance has made a big move into tennis by signing Milos.  Not bad IMO.

huh? I love Serena. That's been my favorite female tennis player for years now.
post #74 of 8514
Why do they always play "Shine bright like a diamond" whenever Serena comes out? Is that her theme music or something? Since when was tennis like WWF laugh.gif

Federer beginning to pick up the pace...

It's incredible how wide his shot selection is. Allows him to conserve his energy while getting the winner...
post #78 of 8514
Well well well...Tomic not going down without a fight....Love Game. for 4-3 in the first set.
post #79 of 8514

That's one of the benefits of having a 1-handed backhand when he's pulled wide.  But at the same time, run into guys that can attack his backhand side (like what Rafa's been doing for years), he'll only be able to counter those high-balls with a defensive slice. Pros and cons.

If they both advance tonight, Raonic vs Federer is going to be a hell of a match Sunday

Del Po losing was SHOCKING. Seppi vs Chardy to go to the Final 8. Crazy. Chardy finally turn the corner? I was working so couldn't watch. Shocked he won that 5th set though...really shocked

Btw. Murray can sleepwalk into the Semi's laugh.gif ...unless...unlesssss Monfils can somehow win tonight

Which speaking of Monfils. God bless any of you that try watching that Simon/Monfils match. Two French pansies duking it out laugh.gif ...hope Gael wins, theres nobody I dislike more on tour than Gilles

Wow Raonic just broke Kohly again. He made straight minced meat out of Kohly!

That'd be pretty dangerous for him.  He looked very shaky... too many uncharacteristic errors and lost his concentration at times. It'd be better for him if he got a tough match to keep him on his toes.

Murray can go home before the championship even starts in my opinion lol
I can't stand that arrogant dude.
post #86 of 8514

LOL, Murray never came off as arrogant to me... 

 

I quite like how his game's improved over the years. He can still be a bit more aggressive, but he's much better than the "pusher" we've seen in the past.  Lendl's done a lot better with his mental-game too.  Still... lots of room for improvement cuz he'll still have a tendency to implode when he gets down.

This kid Tomic (20 years old) has really impressed me today. He's holding his own against Fed....

That last game was great play by him.
post #88 of 8514
Cmon Tomic. Hold this.
post #89 of 8514
Where does people in here rank Fed among indv. sport athletes in history?

I was thinking early its arguable he has been the most dominate player ever.

I'm a Rafa fan so i aint even being biased haha
