Flashback: Wimbledon 2002 what a tournament

Wimbledon 2002 was a very funny tournament and the strange results were everywhere and the fact that Hewitt won it, took nothing away from this.

The 3rd round

Hewitt (1) vs Knowle
Youzhny vs Escude (16)
Morrison (LL) vs Schalken (18)
Voinea vs Jan Vacek

Henman (4) vs Ferreira
Stepanek (q) vs Kratochvil
F.Lopez vs Schuettler (17)
Sa vs Saretta ( match of the top half)

Kafelnikov (5) vs Malisse (27)
Rusedski (23) vs Roddick (11)
The Poo (WC) vs Kiefer
Krajicek vs Srichaphan

Bastl (LL) vs Nalbandian (28)
Dent vs Arthurs
Pavel (15) vs N.Lapentti (22)
Clement vs O.Rochus

4th Round

Hewitt def Youzhny
Schalken def Vacek
Henman def Kratochvil
Sa def LaLo Lopez

Malisse def Rusedski
Krajicek def The Poo
Nalbandian def Arthurs
Lapentti def Clement


QF

Hewitt def Schalken
Henman def Sa
Malisse def Krajicek
Nalbandian def Lapentti

SF

Hewitt def Henman
Nalbandian def Malisse

F

Hewitt def Nalbandian

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".

This was one of the oddest draws in the history of the game.

All the more humorous for it.

Re: Flashback: Wimbledon 2002 what a tournament

Great memories!
When I discovered and became a Nalbo fan.
His fight and passion won me over, especially during the Lapentti and Malisse matches.

Re: Flashback: Wimbledon 2002 what a tournament

Black Wednesday (I think it was Wednesday?) was a great day to watch everything happen.

Olly Rochus played so well in that match against Marat. He has great hands.

Henman v Ferreira was another dramatic match with Ferreira getting a terrible call in a tiebreak if I remember right and it swung that set.

Hewitt v Schalken was one of the best matches when Lleyton went 2-0 up in sets and then Sjeng won the next two and they had a really good battle in the 5th.

Nalbandian v Malisse was really exciting and Lleyton winning the whole thing was amazing. I hope Wimbledon 2005 has as many great matches.

No Rogiman it was THE worst Wimbledon ever. Shouldn't even be debatable.

Re: Flashback: Wimbledon 2002 what a tournament

i find that i almost completely forget about a tournament once it is over. i'm weird that way but my tennis memory sucks. ask me what happened in Hamburg this year and i can only tell you that Roger won. i can't even remember whom he played in the finals. no kidding. i just cannot retain this type of information for any sport, not just tennis. so i am seriously impressed that you guys can remember back to Wimby 2002.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)
