Maybe because the tennis channel feed goes out all around the world? The world would rather watch Pony and Clijsters.

Re: IW R2: Harrison def. GGL 6-3 7-6(4)

Harrison played with guts with capital G. He took his chances and came to the net, many ended in failure ;D
His defensive was good, he chased after every ball.
Give him 2 years experience on the tour and he will be a solid top 20. His future looks bright.
But how can a guy like GGL be #25 in the world?
endless points from clay courts?

Ryan Harrison might provide our first threat at Roland Garros since Agassi. I haven't seen him play on clay, but it seems like it would be impressive. He hit harder at this match than what I recall from his USO run. Quite a prospect this kid.

If I lose the first set, the match will be complicate, no?


My favorite Federer and Nadal quotes following their 2008 Wimbledon final:

“But right now, it’s not much of a how do you say? a feel-good thing.”
-Roger Federer
"In the last game, I didn't see nothing. The true, I wasn't see nothing, no?"
-Rafael Nadal

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

came out swinging, true enough... barely saw the slice backhand i enjoyed watching in uso'10... positively thrashed it today... a fish or raonic test might be a little too meaty for him yet tho...

Re: IW R2: Harrison def. GGL 6-3 7-6(4)

The match was pretty scratchy throughout but Ryan played a good tiebreak and competed well, most importantly he got aggressive when it mattered most and showed the mentality of a winner, which is what separates these new youngsters coming up from a lot of these veterans you would think be better at this, they have the hearts and minds of winners and compete to the fullest. GGL competed well too but simply didn't play well enough consistently.

Congrats Ryan, major opportunity now to play Roger.

GGL satisfied with beating Nadull, he'll probably never win anything important ever again Good win from Harrison anyway, straight set wins over seeded players in MS is about the best sign I can think of for future success even if those players are clowns.

Good stuff. It is a wonderful feeling to be able to watch an American player and root for him without any sense of shame or self-loathing.
If you feel self loathing because of something a tennis player does, you should be ashamed.

Wow, defeating GGL.. not bad. I actually think he has a decent shot against Raonic too, considering Milos is sick/injured.
