This bjorkman is dangerous. Could be a dangerous foe for Berdych with all his experience.

Players who make me...
:Federer - Davydenko - FitDave - Cilic
:Safin - Monfils - Non-Slam Federer.
:Nadal - Roddick - Murray

Tomas will have to be at his best against Jonas because Jonas hits very flat (and this troubles Tomas) and can mix up things very well to wreak havoc on a rhythm player like Tomas.

Retiring with a third round at a Slam, not bad for Arthurs. This should put him aside Agassi and Ivanisevic in the books.

It better not go to a 5th set for Berdych.

Re: Jonas Björkman sends Wayne Arthurs into retirement 6-2, 6-1, 6-4

well not a surprise, Wayne Arthurs was not 100%

it's from his last interview, I was interested by Wayne Arthurs comments because a possible 4th round with Tomas
Q. How is your body holding up?

WAYNE ARTHURS: Pretty well, actually. I was pretty stiff yesterday. I got a lot of work on my body yesterday afternoon, a little pill called Voltarin helps pretty well when you're over 35.

Q. What's that do?

WAYNE ARTHURS: It's an anti inflammatory. It dulls the pain a little bit.

Bjorkman was always a very hard opponent for Arthurs due to great return. After all the scoreline is surprising for me. I expected only one break (or no breaks) in each set.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks

Perfect match-up for Bjorkman. Congrats man, you rule.

Wayno, you're a legend and we'll always thank you for sending Boredo out of Wimbledon.

Congrats to Jonas for yet another great Wimbly run!

Wayne... excellent performance at his retirement. I am in awe.
