Mathieu " I must not go two sets up in a 5 set match" :help:

oh dear again

Sargis strikes

the Eurosport commentators kept mentioning his famous chokes
and they said he wont do it again cos he's not playing as well as he did against Agassi and Youzhny.

Mathieu was too really. He played tough.

This match was so competitive! They both had some awesome shots. My eyes got watery twice today - once for Mary's joy at winning and just now for Sargis. What a great sport!

It's becoming clear to me that PHM is just trying to show us who the REAL French choke artist is. Move over Grosjean

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Mathieu " I must not go two sets up in a 5 set match" :help:

please give Mathieu a break... yeah, he lost another match after leading 2-0 sets (I guess his third one today) and it's a bad way to lose a match, but keep in mind other players don't even get that far and Mathieu should be satisfied with his achievements in this US Open after he was out almost the whole year and couldn't win shit. Also Sargsian did a whole lot of his part to make Mathieu lose this match and it's not a typical choke in form of a total collapse.

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

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

I'd rather discuss French choke artists, if you don't mind

I lack direction.

Re: Mathieu " I must not go two sets up in a 5 set match" :help:

you have right Neely when you saying this was not been a "typcial choke". I agree. I think a much more heavy choke was Gaudio/Hewitt in Monte Carlo or your favourite guy Kiefer aganst Johansson in Wimbledon tournament.

unfortunately.... I have to admit... you're right, that was a brutal choke
I was very disappointed about that, but I somehow I was used to that following Kiefer over so many years

(but good thing that Kiwi today revenged his loss in a VERY convincing way against ToJo, he even gave back the bagel to him and crushed him in three straight sets hehe, not this time, ToJo harhar )

Argh! I was really hoping they would replay this match sometime today but I don't think they will *grumble* Even though Paulo lost...I am nothing but pleased...I never expected him to get past Sluiter...I need to have more faith I know...but after 7 month of injury I wasn't expecting much and to get to the 3rd round is a great effort!


GOOD LUCK

Fernando Verdasco | Paul-Henri Mathieu | Richard Gasquet

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga | Marat Safin | Juan Carlos Ferrero | Carlos Moya | David Nalbandian | Mathieu Montcourt | Nicolas Mahut

Re: Mathieu " I must not go two sets up in a 5 set match" :help:

tnx, lizabeth... exactly my thought about this match and the situation

some people are acting as if Paulo was losing 6-0 6-2 6-0 in the last three sets

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

Pualo won a great match against taylor dent, winning 2 tie breaks so...

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
