Re: What just happened in Federer-Kiefer MatcH??

2 ballgirls seemed not being able to decide who should pick up the ball.

I think it was an awful move from the organizers to bring these stupid wannabe ball girls, the amount of mistakes they make is just.. And it was a crucial point of the match, and Fed went 0-30 on Kiefer's serve. I think it's annoying to the players.

Indeed. It IS a stupid move.
At least this incident was pretty funny. Earlier on during the tournament I saw several players being slightly annoyed with those toothpics pronking around - Nadal comes to mind.

Tennis is a SPORT, not a circus or a fashion show. Though I realize that Roger might like that second aspect.

It was funny, but as you've said this is not a circus it's a bloody SF. I hope the organizers learnt their lesson and won't repeat this in the future, really no need for it.

Tiriac is the man to blame for this.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Roger just cracked up, he tried to control himself and then just laughed freely, it was a great moment.

with Tiriac in the business, no chance for your request

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:
