Re: Moya.vs.Schalken scores

I've to stop now. Live broadcast was interrupted as I said. Moya looks more comfortable than Schalken in this match i think.

Schalken has some big weapons. I love his backhand. He is against Moya and Moya is just well an artist out there. Shittypan is dead for sure tomorrow.

Re: Moya.vs.Schalken scores

I guess if you want to see someone who sticks to a constant routine than Schalken is a great exponent of that, he has the ability of griding a player down and that I do respect about his game but from a spectators perspective it is not the most interesting tennis to watch.

Re: Moya.vs.Schalken scores

Schalken is not boring to watch at all, but I preffer Mantilla because he fights harder every single point, he is, as he said last year in Rome, the "Gladiator". He gives always 100%. And I don't think Schalken does it as much as Mantilla. Apart from that, he is ESP like me...

In any case, go Móyá!!!!!

Re: Re: Moya.vs.Schalken scores

Fair enough, fair enough... anyhow, I live in hope that Schalken can pull the next two sets out, although he's never been a great comeback player from what I recall. Does everyone think a Moya-Srichaphan final would be just as easy for Moya as their Miami match last year?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Moya.vs.Schalken scores

Both players were in pretty good form last year having won tournaments earlier in the season, these are different courts though, I have heard that they are a little slow, if that is the case then I would favour Moya, I think Paradorn may have well played his final against Robredo, that would have taken a fair bit out of him.

Oh god yes. Shittypan is just a meathead. He will never be able to hang with artist Moya.

Re: Moya.vs.Schalken scores

Although that said Dirk, Moya's artistry doesn't seem at all apparent to me at times, especially on that backhand wing... Srichaphan could definitely teach him a thing or two about hitting a decent, consistent topspin backhand. But he doesn't like playing the big servers, and Moya had some amazing service stats in his quarterfinal yesterday.

Moya is more consistent and has more variety on his backhand than shittypan. Shittypan doesn't know how to use his talent. He is a dead man tomorrow. Score?

Re: Re: Moya.vs.Schalken scores

Ho-hum. Mind you, at least it wasn't a demolition or anything. Can't both players lose tomorrow?
