George, was that against Robredo at RG? I remember that match since it was a rare case of cheering for Lleyton.

Yes, that was against Boredo at RG and it wasn't a bad match either, that was in the year of Costa the warrior with his outstanding defence of his title in 2003, when he played crap but managed to win all those matches before Ferrero took him out.

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".

Re: Best 5 Set Records Active Players Only

Funny that a guy who is meant to be a mental midget like Berdych is 8-0 in 5 setters, then again Safin has a great record in them as well. It seems like it gives them more time for them to have their bad moments.

The one common theme among all of the ones on the list is that they have for the vast majority of time blown a 2 sets to love lead.

I saw Mantilla do it at the AO against Grosjean, the body gave out and Seb played well.

Hrbaty did this year against the PMK at the AO and Safin did at Wimbledon and Nieminen blew one against Henman at Wimbledon as well.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Best 5 Set Records Active Players Only

What about Mark Poo Poo Scud Dud~ he`s supposed to be a mental midget too but his 5-set record is one Federer would envy!

Re: Best 5 Set Records Active Players Only

Federer would be quite happy with a 5 set record like the Poo, however he has won 8 Slams without having to win too many 5 setters and that should say something about him.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Best 5 Set Records Active Players Only

What's Nadal's 5 set record?

This is information I find hard to come by.

He has won 7 in a row since then.

Re: Best 5 Set Records Active Players Only

No surprise that the Safin v Nalbandian and the Berdych and Tursunov matches went the distance and as it stands now.

Safin is 24-10

Nalbandian 12-8

Tursunov is 6-4

Berdych is now 9-0 and one more and he is in the list.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Impressive. Is Gasquet already in the "worst" list?


Roger Federer

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc
.
