Wink Re- My Comments on the France-USA Tie...

About a week or so ago I said something to the effect of "there is no way that France can lose this tie, unless they actually try to lose it "

Well I've thought about that, and analysed a bit more

And I'm not confident with that at all

In fact I think that it might come back to haunt me *deletes posts*

But seriously, I think that this tie has the potential to go down to the wire.

I was wrong to count out the USA team, although I still think that France will win

Either way - may the winner LOSE in the next round

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I dont know. Right now the USA looks like slight faves to me. If it was held on hardcourts in USA than the US would be hugely faves. Even if it was clay in a natural country i would still favorite the Amricans.

Tennis, Ergo Sum.

Clement on clay is more useless than Pete Sampras even though he took Alex to 5 at RG

Well Roddick is leading him 6-4 6-6 at the moment.
Roddick had a 238 KPH serve, i bet its a mistake, but still

For someone who doesn't like clay, Clement played quite well on it today. He was getting to almost every ball.

Clement def. Roddick 46 76 76 61

Go Blake!!!

Arnaud isn't good on clay
but he was playing a overhyped prima donna

any decent player would regard Arnaud as easy pickings on clay

I agree its not his best surface but remember some of his matches in FO vs Agassi and Corretja, he both lost them after he had matchpoints, i think saying he's useless on clay was a bit too much..

Besides he's an amazing DC player..

As for Andy he showed he lacks experience and still has to improve his game. His serve was amazing, 70% of first serves in i think, but it wasnt enough..

It was a good match!

Blah!
