Moya def Grosjean 5-7 7-5 7-6 (7-4)

I know people get sick of result threads, but this was a truly amazing match, I just had to post about it.

By far the best match at Sydney this week. The standard of tennis was incredible, aside from a couple of Moya double faults, and lasted over 2 and a half hours in the blistering sun. Heck, I struggled sitting in the sun, let alone playing.

I can't remember everything, but anyone who was there, let's discuss it, because it was a remarkable match, the best I've ever seen live.

I mean, I was going for Moya all the way, but in the tiebreak, when everyone was cheering him on, I couldn't help but yell out for Sebastien, just because his play deserved so much more support from the crowd. He did at least get a standing ovation from the crowd as he left the court.

I wouldn't worry too much. If he plays the way he did this afternoon in Melbourne, he'll have some nice results I'm sure. And he seems to have a bigger serve than I remember when I last saw him. He got some up to the 215km area.

The matter is that Grosjean always shows the potential to have nice results.
He is regular at Wimbledon, reaching at least the QFs last three years, but somehow chokes in the other slams, although he's got the abilities to be a regular Quaterfinalist in Slams. I guess he's getting old and his time might be past... But I still have faith.

VAMOS!
I love Grosjean and Moya, so I wouldn't have been too upset either way, but I have to admit that I am excited to see Carlos doing well again.

Seb

Apart from Arnaud and Flo, the Frenchies have not been doing well in Sydney.

Not here...especially when neither of the players involved is one of the top 5/10 guys.

Sounds like it really was an exciting match between two veterans who are both skilled and entertaining. How wonderful for you to be able to have seen it live. I'd love it if both gentlemen had terrific years.

And, psst, welcome to MTF!

I love my girls.
