Exclamation Shocking: Scud ousted

OK, having just watched the second and third set of the Arazi - Philippoussis match, I was left completely in shock. I was shocked, not only because of the 6-2 6-2 6-4 scoreline, but also becaues of Mark's horrible play. What is up with him?

Congratulations to Hicham, for playing a very solid, and at times very good match (like that passing shot in the last game; superb!). I really had expected Mark to win this match without a problem, so I am very much surprised!

What happened, Mark was looking so good. I haven't seen the match but his serve must have not been working well. Mark lives and dies by his serve...

DARN! I was hoping for *really* competitive, all-star Quarters. Oh well, Hicham could still deliver against Ferrero. Good job Hicham. I'm sure all of Morocco is very happy for you. And congrats for matching what Younes did last year, which is getting to the Quarters.

Mars does this all the time. After seeing him play against Johansson it was obvious he could not keep that level of play up and was going to get carved up when he played someone talented. I was predting Santoro would do what Arazi did today. Well it eventually happened just 2 rounds later

I didn't get to see the match but the result does surprise me.

Mark's serve was fine. But his groundstrokes were horrible. Too many unforced errors. Hicham had only 9 unforced errors in 2 sets, and coupled with some absolutely rediculous shots he was pulling out his rear end, Mark got thumped.

Re: Shocking: Scud ousted

The serve wasn't too good either, but the unforced errors... way too many! This level was too low; basically anyone in the men's draw would've beaten Philippoussis who plays like this.

Re: Shocking: Scud ousted

If Ferrero beats Hicham, he'll have gotten to the semis with only one top 50 win....

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

the only reason Pavel isnt top 50 though is because he was injured, hes normally a top 30 player

Re: Shocking: Scud ousted

Arazi!!!!

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)
