Do you thin they even have to wait until the game is over? Cheating and gamesmanship pisses me off, but nothing pisses me off more than the double standards for the top guys and the rest, especially because Duckworth and Kavcic fought harder and needed this win far more than the pampered, rich top players
This isn't exactly double standards. Duckworth called for a trainer because of cramps. MTOs are not allowed for cramps. The trainer was only on court for the amount of time that they sit during changeover, not more.

The players that as you claim fake injuries, actually "fake" injuries not cramps. For an injury, the trainer can come on even in the middle of a game.

at least best GS result ever for Blaž, better to leave 3rd round match and get well

Re: AO R2: Kavcic def. Duckworth 3-6 6-3 6-4 6-7(3) 10-8

A win of his life...with a toll unfortunately.



From his facebook: VAMOOO!!! win after 5 hours on 40 degrees.. collapse afterwards, but morphine works well, i feel happy )

Simply unhuman to let these guys play 5 hours on 40°c. That's more 50°c on sun.
I played a lot when the temperature was 27-30°c, well sometimes I still do. After one hour I'm dead. It's easier on clay because HC can really accumulate a lot of heat, but the points are longer on clay.
After 15 shots of a rally I just hit a dropshot or go for a crazy winner to end the point quickly and get some air again This tactics has worked sometimes.

Tsonga next! Or is it?

This is truly inhuman, even in football where there is more money players are protected against this kind of temperatures and play is suspended.

to both players. This was really insane. I'm happy Blaž won at the end but (if he will play) against Tsonga he won't have much energy left.

Blaž Kavčič - Grega Žemlja - Aljaž Bedene - Luka Gregorc - Janez Semrajc - Andraž Bedene


Nieminen - Verdasco - Blake - Nadal - The Bryans

Well next opponent is Tsonga so that's probably on a bigger court regardless of who his opponent was gonna be.

All matches will be on televised courts now though, they have 7 of them so they can fit all singles match on TV courts, so he would be stealing a TV court spot from no one

The irony of this is that both players are light skinned so this was especially dangerous.

Amazing . I'm really impressed with this pic. Really wondering if that would be a good idea for Kavcic to play his 3rd round match if he is not 100% recovered.
