View Full Version : Tennis in the Ten. Let's all get our sticks back out.
:rofl: RG radio broadcasts were focusing on who to friend and de-friend on Facebook for about five minutes during this rather tense Murray-Gasquet match.

Murray simply raised his level and decided to take the match away. 32 winners in the last 2 sets alone from Murray.

Gasquet gave up after the 3rd set. Its easy to hit winners all over the place when your opponent isn't even trying.
I give up rooting for Gasquet. The guy is such a wimp!! :wall:

^Yup, sorry but Gasquet is pathetic. Same old with him and there's always an excuse. Second time he's lost to Murray in a slam having lead two set to love, AND he's blown a sets lead in four of his last six GS losses. :rofl: Good God.

When Gasquet started losing steam in the 3rd set, I knew he's a goner. :o I watched his match against Verdasco in Nice final on Tennis Channel and he had the trainer out in 3rd set to massage his thigh. When his request for Tuesday start was turned down, his only chance was to win in 3 quick sets.
The good thing is that he's playing the best tennis in a loooooong while. The bad thing is his conditioning still needs work, as always. That's not even counting the part of being a headcase. :P
“But I would not trade my title in Nice against a first-round win here,” Gasquet said. “And after this match, I know that I can play at my best level again. I’m playing well again.”
His ranking is now enough to gain direct entry to Masters, so maybe next time he wouldn't feel the need to schedule two weeks in a row before a GS.

Hey, just noticed that Bethanie Mattek got a lucky loser into the main draw!! :)
Looks like Shuang Peng withdrew for some reason.
Mattek's draw now couldn't be any better. She gets to play a fellow American player who isn't named Williams. ;) She's playing Vania King. Should be an interesting match.

What is Venus Williams wearing??! :eek:
It looks like she has no panties/shorts under that (dubious taste) dress.
I actually kinda liked the dress, but, yeah, the skin-colored shorts were distracting.

Oh pickles, Andrew, its far too early in the morning for these shenanigans!
Pull yourself together!

Oy, Sammy Q has inherited Roddick's Roland Garrositis! Just wrapped up a R1 loss to that clay court maestro FurBeast Ginepri. Le sigh.
Andy's stats are absolutely awesome. All of 'em except for the serve percentage ... and sets won of course (losing 1-2 (sets) at the moment). Actually, the match "reads" like an excellent quality affair.

Nieminen is certainly entertaining, he makes AndyRoo seem almost stoic.
05-25-2010, 04:24 PM
Well Roddick finally prevails 6-3 in the 5th. For a while there I was thinking why did Roddick even bother to play the French with no clay court matches under his belt yet this year! :eek:
More good news....39 year old Kimiko Date beat the lumbering ox known as Dinara Safina 3-6, 6-4, 7-5. Date is the 2nd oldest woman to win a grand slam match behind Virginia Wade at 85 Wimbledon.
Bethanie Mattek ripped Vania King 2&2 so she's into the 2nd rd as a lucky loser.
05-25-2010, 04:32 PM
Safina :( I'm sad for her.

Kimiko Date is AMAZING! 39yo on one leg beats last years finalist. :bowdown:
