Re: Hippo stomps Willy Wonka 6-2 7-6(5) to advance to final!!!

Sorry I gave everyone a heart attack in the other thread

But what drama the tiebreak was!

Marat was up serving 4-3 with the mini-break when he hit a shot Canas thought was out but was called in. Canas had a fit, was screaming at the line judge. And then Marat double faults to make it 5-4 He then proceeded to play a really stupid point and it was 5-5.

Then came an even bigger eruption from Canas- at 5-5, Safin hit a ball that was called long by the linesman but overruled by the umpire Romano Grilloti. Canas was really shitting kittens at that point. They replayed the point, Safin got the mini-break to go up 6-5 and then polished off with a volley winner to take the breaker and the match with it 7-5.

UUUFFFFF!!! I could never be a full-time Marat fan, my nerves just wouldn't be able to take it! I really admire you guys that support Marat through thick and thin.

That was such a stupid rampage from Canas. The ball was clearly in and Canas literally tried to emulate these two mtf smilies: :retard:

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas
