Re: Alexander Popp ........

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->

Re: Alexander Popp ........

I've seen him choke really badly at other tournaments... I don't know what the deal is with him and Wimbledon. He's won challengers before, but in his career he's had mononucleosis, a wrist injury which kept him out of the game for 4 or 5 months. He's doing very nicely so far

yes, the most recent example is as he was up *5-1 to Clément in Halle and lost the set 5-7.

I'll sign that... well, Roddick needed two tiebreaks today against Dent what shows that he couldn't break his opponent's serve good enough. There's not that much difference between Dent's game on grass and Popp's. So Roddick should better watch out, I think this could be a great match, and a tight one, too.

Dent went into net like 90 times today and Popp has been in 9 times in two and a half sets.

sure, in regards to net attacks they are of course not the same player... ah damn, well, forget about that part of post #6 then.
I meant both are able to serve well. Popp's serve speed-wise not the biggest, but some great angles.

Re: Alexander Popp ........

LOL Neely! So they both have good serves, but it doesn't look like they play the same style at all really. Well anyway, like I said that's what Andy pays Brad for, to do the research

Anyway, it's nice for Popp to do well at Wimby but it's too bad he doesn't get any results anywhere else!

Re: Alexander Popp ........

Popp doesn't seem to hit so many aces, but he has a fabulous winning percentage on his first serve. Plus he isn't missing many first serves.
