worst GS Friday in the past 20 years?

Surely this must be the worst Friday ever spare for complete washouts.

RL:

Stosur 64 61
Fed 3-0
Venus 2-0
Hewitt 2-0 ret.

HiS:

Azarenka 62 60
Serena 60 63
Nole 61 61 62

MCA:

Zvonareva 61 75
Davydenko 60 63 64
Verdasco 61 ret.

C3:

Schiavone 62 62
Almugro 3-0

The only somewhat interesting match today was Hantuchova - Li. If Li winning 6-2 in the 3rd against Hantuchova is the highlight of the day at a Grand Slam 3rd round day, you know something is very very wrong. Poor spectators is all I can say.

I am not sure a 4 hr moonball fest would make things better. Haas winning 12-10 in the 5th would.

Nice nickname, suits this thread very well!

Re: worst GS Friday in the past 20 years?

Yea on paper I can't remember when I was this excited about a third-round day. Youzhny-Kubot was likely going to be the last great sleeper match of the tournament, and I was absolutely PRIMED to watch it. Davydenko-Monaco had potential as Pico seemed to be getting better as his last match went on, Verdasco-Koubek was interesting, and the day was supposed to be ended with a quality Hewitt-Baghdatis scrapfest in Laver and an early-round classic Haas-Tsonga in Hisense.

So one walkover, two early retirements and one straight-set scrubbing. Maybe Haas will take the last one into 5 sets. Or retire, he's already had a back massage.

Best of luck for:
| Fat Dave |
| Santoro |
| Jarkko Eminem |

Re: worst GS Friday in the past 20 years?

Not a good day for mens tennis.

Koubek was in bad shape and no way could compete, and Falla / Monaco gave it what they had so I dont blame them.

Isotoner gave the worst performance I have ever seen in a third round. I would not be surprised if he was paid to take a dive. It was that bad.

Baggytits is a puss. Sorry, you dont default in a major unless you are dying.

Haaselhoff tried but he decided to be a dumbass when he served for the fourth set.

I cannot stop laughing at those with tickets for the RL night session. Hewitt for 1 and a half sets and then Wozniacki inevitably beating a nobody in an hour.

Re: worst GS Friday in the past 20 years?

It should definitely pick up in the second week. The QF here have more promise than I can remember for a while. And some will always say that the current slam is the worst of the last 20 years.

Re: worst GS Friday in the past 20 years?

I knew it was going to be boring judging by OOP, this top half is nowhere near as exciting as bottom half. Fed and Novak's draws have been so easy zzzzzz.

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013

Re: worst GS Friday in the past 20 years?

The bottom half has been much better, at least yesterday was very interesting compared to today.

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Yes. First, because Murray and Nadal are in the bottom. Change your shorts. Second, because Murray has played Anderson, Gicquel, and Serra.

I at least found Federer's roars of frustration slightly amusing.
