I heard from others that he was so furious in the match that kicked the bulletin board and even the water barrel.
Yeah, he kicked the board, but he did not the "Evian" watter barrel. He ran into it and knocked it after Lu played a short half volley at net.

wow, he is really irritable in these two rounds. I thought with the Sydney title, he should play with confidence and in better mood , even i understand it's quite normal for him sometimes burst into temper in the match.

Re: Australian Open 2009

Awful service game and he is a break down. Again he is having too many DFs.

Relived? So far he is lucky he is set up and will be lucky if he wins this at all. This is his worse display since USO.

He played against Lu once in Beijing before, and that was a very tight match that he also had a lot of problems but finally got through. I heard Lu played very well today and even once got the SP on 2nd set. It's just a pity that David lifted him up to the level in Sydney last week, but totally hampered in Melbourne at all.

He did not have SPs, he had 2 BPs at 5-5.
