CH Bordeaux R2: Matosevic def. Serra 6-0 6-1

Damn.

Florent got destroyed at home by this mediocre hardcourter. Very sad result. He didn't even play terribly badly in the second set, he was in several games, however, Matosevic was completely all over him in rallies and Florent made so many errors. Just very sad result overall. Now, Florent will have to hope for an RG WC, but it may not come for him.

Bordeaux CH R2 : Matosevic def. Serra 6-0 6-1

Bad one Marinko letting Serra win a game.

Dedicated to flyboy this win.

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".

Couldn't have been more wrong

Abysmal showing from Serra. Definitely should not be in the running for a RG WC with that performance.

Re: Bordeaux CH R2 : Matosevic def. Serra 6-0 6-1

what was the best ranking that a player had when a Grand Slam tournament started which he was not qualified for?
Matosevic is ranked around #87 now, will climb up to around #66 if he wins the Bordeaux title

Re: Bordeaux CH R2 : Matosevic def. Serra 6-0 6-1

Matosevic is a complete douchebag with awful on-court antics and an obnoxious grunt and so many here likes him

The hypocrisy is hilarious. The result is obviously a horrible one for the game, but the hypocrisy from posters on this forum actually makes me laugh and sort of takes the pain away from this result.

Only a clown of the highest order gets bageled by a journeyman like Mugtosevic. Not surprisingly Serra fits exactly into that category.

your simpaticos Clement and Serra for instance are not douche-bags? Marinko maybe cocky sometimes, but he is up.front with it and does not hide from anyone, everything he achieved he did it by himself; you got to appreciate him for the work ethics, attitude and how much he achieved;

It seems another Dodig like career coming up thanks to flyboys jinxing and constant bashing, got to love it....

Instead you should tell us more about the potential of these two players and how you see it unfolding in the future. Would love to hear your expertise on this.

Re: Bordeaux CH R2 : Matosevic def. Serra 6-0 6-1

Marinko served awesome today, played probably one of his best matches ever, Serra on the other hand was utter crap, going 0/15 on 2nd serve PTS, 55% 1st serve PTS won, 0/5 on BP's saved.

No your hypocrisy is hilarious and you don't need me to highlight the 100 examples of it that's right.

Matosevic doesn't pretend to be a nice guy, but honesty is only ok when it's someone you like. Clement picks on ballkids, Serra got into arguments with spectators after the match and Volandri has been involved in some questionable activities.

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 was right about Dodig. I never trashed him, I've always liked Dodig. He has good character, unlike Matosevic. He just lacks talent. And as we have seen the past 12 months, he's done essentially nothing after beating Rafa in Montreal.

I digress, the whole "he's upfront about it" bullshit is just that, people on this forum RAIL against other players for doing the SAME shit Matosevic does constantly. The rail against players for being ballbashers, when Matosevic plays virtually the same exact game as these same players.

I know about his life story but he's a douchebag. Most guys on tour have had to work to get where they are. That doesn't make someone a good person nor a good player.

First of all, basically every trashing you can give one of my favorites, Matosevic has already done. Secondly, if you dislike these players for their antics and don't dislike Matosevic for the same antics, you're a hypocrite. That's all it comes down to, so just stop trying to justify it. And don't say I'm whining, either, because I literally have a smile on my face. Blatant hypocrisy is always a joy to watch. You are a hypocrite, and you support players who do negative shit while railing on the same negative shit from other players.
