What are you talking about. When your father is in the hospital you still have to go to work. I don't know what is the dad's situation, but if he is the hospital undergoing work up or treatment what can Nole do there? He might as well do his best in London, even if he is not 100% focused and then go back home.

He did say at Bercy that Rasheed is a long term appointment. I think the aim in mind should be to peak for Wimbledon, which is something he could win with his best tennis over 2 weeks, perhaps the only Slam he could win at the moment.
Yup, Rasheed has a lot of work to do. Jo hasn't played a single great match since his QF with Nole in Paris. If not for an injured and non-moving JMDP in Rome, he'd have 0 top 10 wins this year.

Lots of work to do if Jo is to become a threat again: BH and ROS need to improve big time, confidence needs to be higher and shot selection/tactics desperately need to improve. I hope to see some improvements by the time AO rolls around.

he's not talking about it, but the newspapers said a week or so ago that his dad was admitted to hospital. Nothing else said since then.

It hasn't happened for the last 4-5 years so it won't suddenly happen now that he is almost 28.....

Don't even bother.

He's just looking for the crease. He wants to stick the needle in to see where he can get the most reaction.

Nadal isn't playing so he's bored. Poor thing.

Although to be fair he was a bit unlucky in the first set, especially in the first break point where Nole was saved by a netcord. Think he'll go 0-3 here though, sadly.

As for Nole, he played within himself and won as expected, he will most definitely be in the semis and competing for his second WTF title.
Guess you missed the 2nd set where he won just 2 points on Nole's serve, if that's not blown off, I don't know what is. Give it a rest Lenders, Tsonga ain't never going to be as good as Nole.

I think this is true.

Unfortunately, Tsonga had his early playing years marred by lots of injuries (and at the very beginning he was overweight). That hurt his development years, imo. I think a young player undergoing serious injuries often plays a role in their development.

No shit And here I was thinking Tsonga was going to take over the #1 ranking from Nole in the coming months

Yep, nole is some non stop broke guy which will get fired if his boss doesn't see him behind the working desk

my only point was that people overreacting. if srdjan is really so bad, nole wouldn't play tennis at the moment, at least i wouldn't

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

He's planning for an extremely expensive nose operation. Every penny is welcome.

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!
