AWESOME, YAY!!!

Very good match, some 40 winners - 15 errors.

I'm so proud of him !
Last july he was beyond the 200th place in the ranking. And now he is a solid top 50 player. Great improvement, especially on clay !

Actually I think he has even a good shot against Tsonga considering how Jo uses to struggle against big servers.

I know a tennis 'commentator' who will lose his job over this. Predicted that GGL would take the 2nd quarter to face Fed in the semis.

Good tournament for de Bakker he still has a lot of work to do, but making solid progress.

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".

I like Tsonga but I think the baker is going to be making some bagels and breadsticks for him next round

Maybe it will be De Bakker's bakery. He's done it before, and nomen est omen.
(I'm kidding of course. )

I'll see if I can dig up the article. You think you have bad commentators? Canada has some terrible ones.
