Smile Vince beat Rainer??



i'm on a small Caribbean island with no Wimbledon coverage apparently there is some fee you have to pay ESPN or whoever and they didn't pay it so Wimbledon is being blocked out. unbelievable

anyway i'd appreciate comments from anyone who actually saw this match. how good is Vince playing? what did he do that was effective against Rainer? how much further do you think he'll go?

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Vince beat Rainer??

Excellent win for Vince Spadea! Hes having a storming Wimbledon so far! He won in straight sets as well against Schuettler. Next up he faces Sjeng Schalken so he needs to be at his best to reach the Q-F Id say.

Re: Vince beat Rainer??

I didnt see this match, so I guess I shouldnt be responding. But if it makes you feel any better, ESPN hasnt been showing Vince's matches. He's been in the studio, that's about it. I dont think he was expected to do this well. Right now they are showing Arazi - Henman. And Vince is not supposed to be on the line-up today anyway. So I guess you will have to stick with match statistics or something. Whatever Vince is doing right, I dont think the people who aren't actually at Wimbledon will ever know

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: Vince beat Rainer??

against Rusedski and Soderling, Rainer could react and rely on the fact that he is the better basesliner and a good return player

against Spadea, Rainer had to act on his own because Spadea plays a completely different game, mostly very solid and crafty from the baseline, also a I'm always saying that Spadea is a tough fighter.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Spadea is tough. He can be very determined.

But I have to think too that Rainer had some draining matches that took something out of his legs.

Re: Vince beat Rainer??

That was one of the open matches for anyone to win. Grinder vs. Grinder. But I think that Vince is looking better right now and is getting better with age. He's very confident after winning his title this year and he's sneaking in the top group now!
