Re: The Artois Championships 2008

Great clutch play to get to 6:1 in TB and then 3 missed match points (1 was unreal drop shot from Troicki). Good win.

Re: The Artois Championships 2008

good 2 sets win!
I won't get any coverage until the QF so I hope he wins one more match unfortunately the live streaming is impossible for me because my internet speed these days is terrible

Re: The Artois Championships 2008

I guess that is Yonex Wimbledon outfit for Dave. Not bad.

Re: The Artois Championships 2008

Here are the Yonex outfits for this year....not many choices for him. As Hewitt takes the blue ones, there are only yellow ones for him except grass season...

Re: The Artois Championships 2008

I saw the match point! actually, i got to see it from when he had three match points - that's more accurate.
so, basically i only had time to see his outfit & that he had his hair cut a bit AND that he won, of course - so it's all good.

mahut, heh? Good luck, dave.

Re: The Artois Championships 2008

I saw the match until 6-5 in the 2nd set and then stupid eurosport decided to stop broadcasting. Really, who does that?

This match didn't impress me that much, but I have to admit he played better than I expected. Some drama (as always) to close the 1st set (he wasted 6 sp) and again when he was 15-40 while serving for 5 all.

Tomorrow he will need to play really well, Mahut is great on grass and is defending a lot of points. So, good luck David!

Re: The Artois Championships 2008

A win in 2 - Good Job!

Mahut will be tough but if his injuries stay under control and he is motivated he can take anyone. Guess we just wait and see. VAMOS David!

Re: The Artois Championships 2008

Thanks for the photos, Novanora. I like his new haircut.

Good luck against Mahut, David.

Vamos!
