Re: Terrible matches today

they put their countrymans biggest courts, even the journeymens so you cant expect to see good match in television, but if you can see all the courts live its good for you.

Re: Terrible matches today

It's not like every single day at any particular major is filled with amazing matches.

Re: Terrible matches today

Yes, it is a garbage day match wise.

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".

Re: Terrible matches today

Tipsarevic-Lopez is a good one from what I've seen on Eurosport, and Starace-Murray was fine in that the points were quite short. Didn't see Almagro-Gulbis, but it can't have been all that bad.

Re: Terrible matches today

Agree, very bad day, a lot of mugs match but what would we expect when 32 players are seeeded? With 16 seeded players before 2001, there were more interesting matches in the 1st and 2nd round.

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