Nightmare Matches

An idea developed from another thread....What would be your nightmare match to watch?

Early contenders :-

Massu v Chela on a slow clay court
Karlovic v Arthurs on grass
Srichaphan v Fish on clay
Gaudio v Volandri on grass

Re: Nightmare Matches

I wouldn't mind watching the last two of those four you mention, incongruity over uniformity any day.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Nightmare Matches

Well what's funny about the last two is that there would have to be a winner of each match meaning either Fish or Srichaphan won a match on clay and Gaudio or Volandri won a match on grass.. so at least it'd be amusing!

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

What?!? Roddick-Agassi in a semi-final or final in Australian Open, US Open or Tennis Masters Cup isn't a great game? I say this tournaments because Eurosport transmit them.

When was the last time Greg Took Andy to a TB
Arthur's-Karlovic scoreline would be something like this : 7-6 6-7 6-7 7-6 22-20 after 4 hrs of play

There an only be One Nadal

Think it would have been Wimbledon 2003 when Greg had his famous "outburst" when someone called out from the crowd. I'm not a fan of either - so maybe someone who is can put me right on that if I've got the date wrong.

What's funny is in the 6 matches they've played (2 on grass, mind you), 18 sets, only 3 have gone to TB ... and they actually played 3 times on grass

that's true, I forgot that one would have to break the other. But can you imagine a match on grass between them that was three tiebreak sets? it'd be 7-6 6-7 7-6 in like an hour

Two non-native English speaking players on hardcourt, live on ESPN. It's their nightmare, not mine.

My nightmare: any WTA match.

(sorry for the ladies reference here on MTF but I'd watch a mens match, any mens match over a 'top' womens one any day, any time, from anywhere. Our local HS's boys team is pretty good ).

I love my girls.

To the bigoted anti-Americans, no.

"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."
