2012 Clay and Grass Seasons

Despite the loss to Mayer, Ryan didn't play too bad (seemed a lot more comfortable than the last couple of weeks). He had his chances early in the third set, but his serve failed him at the end. When Mayer was returning serve way behind the baseline during the third set, Ryan should have serve and volley (he had successes in the 2nd set, but seemed to have gotten away from it towards the end of the match).

Re: Prepping for Roland Garros continues in Dusseldorf

It seems that he always has a bad first-set.......sigh
I almost thought he had a great chance to win at the first few games of the third set, until that love game ...

Re: Prepping for Roland Garros continues in Dusseldorf

Yeah, he is known to be a slow starter. It is trending to where his opponents are now electing to receive against him . Don't think it will change any time soon .

Re: Prepping for Roland Garros continues in Dusseldorf

Flight continues. Doubles: Blake/Harrison vs. Berlocq/Chela

After more-than-two-hour single and a doubles, I think at least he will sleep well tonight. :P

Re: Prepping for Roland Garros continues in Dusseldorf

Such a pouring rain in Dusseldorf. I think they might not be able to play today. At least I cannot wait for it anymore. It's almost 3 a.m. and tomorrow (actually today) is Monday...

Ito surprisingly defeated Stepanek. I hope Ryan can at least defeat one Japanese player (it seems easier than to defeat one of these two Czechs), so that he can earn 35 (or 25) points....

Re: Prepping for Roland Garros continues in Dusseldorf

He might not play all singles matches. At some point, I expect Blake to jump in the singles (probably wants to play a match before RG).

Re: Prepping for Roland Garros continues in Dusseldorf

hope I'm not the only one who watched this delayed death rubber doubles, instead of another Djorker/Nadel final

(but it seems so...)

Re: Prepping for Roland Garros continues in Dusseldorf

tomorrow USA vs. CZE. Ryan got one day break (Roddick vs. Berdych, Blake vs. Stepanek). Yay, they heard me and might put Ryan against Japan~! (but both Ito and Soeda played really well in these two days...)

It was not just rain, it was hail. And LOADS of it I was there and have never seen something like that before. It got dark and then the umpire announced that play was suspended due to lightning. And then they announced for the crowd to immediately leave the court. Just like two minutes later the rain and hail came, scary.

Re: Prepping for Roland Garros continues in Dusseldorf

Feel a little disappointed when hearing the news that he faces Simon 1st round
But still have a firm belief that he will surprise us!
Lets wait
