Re: Sunday OP

I think Calleri is the closest to a big server we ever had in Argentina.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Re: Re: Sunday OP

I knew he could serve quite big, but not that big. Hopp Federer, 1/1 on breakpoints and he leads 3-1! It could just as easily be 3-1 Pavel by now...

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.

Nope, Sky Sports here in the UK - it's very good coverage, six hours of live interactive day matches (choice of two or three courts), then highlights of the night session the following afternoon. Some of the commentators involved could be better, but I'm not going to bite the hand that feeds me.

WOW you're lucky!!! Here, TSN and RDS take their coverage from ESPN, and they show just one or 2 matches per day, so we don't have a lot of coverage in one year... only the TMS and the GS!

Re: Sunday OP

I must say, a nice turnaround after being down a few break points, in his 2nd service game!
6-1 Federer!!

Re: Sunday OP

Wow, that was quick - Pavel had those three chances at 1-1, and since then hasn't won another game, it can't be coincidence.

You're right Billabong, it's probably the best tennis coverage in the world, which is why I get irritated when some people (not naming names here, naturally) start whining about the excessive coverage of Henman's matches. At least on Sky you have another option, sometimes two!
