DC of Upsets so far . . .

I just thought I should note that almost all of the top seeds, apart from the only consistent ones, Nadal, and Federer, have lost!

Roddick, Blake, Robredo, Haas . . .

Czech Republic is doing very well though, of course! Too bad Stepanek isn't healed yet

Re: DC of Upsets so far . . .

Haas was the only upset on that list, it's not like Volandri is a claycourt clown and I'd take his backhand over Robredo's 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.

Okay fine, Roddick and Blake are both shit players who can't win on any surface outside of US hardcourt.

Roddick? Blake?



Just because they are ranked higher doesn't mean it's an upset, especially considering most people were expecting them

Berdych - Andreev - Acasuso - Mathieu - Tursunov - Gaudio - Simon



Vliegen * Malisse * Chela * Zabaleta * Gasquet * Calleri * Djokovic * Starace

Re: DC of Upsets so far . . .

Fine, this is news to me.

I guess this proves that Nadal and Federer are the only good players in the top 10. They can win on any surface, Roddick is just shit I guess.

Nobody said that, don't know why you mention it :retard: :retard:.

Safin and Youzhny are better claycourters than Roddick and Blake, what does Nadal and Federer have to do with anything?

You should still be in the arseclown contest for what i'm reading

Re: DC of Upsets so far . . .

IT'S TRUE THOUGH! Nadal and Federer can beat anyone on any surface, on most days, whereas every other top 10 player, just sucks. ESPECIALLY Roddick. I would expect better from a top 10 player.

They must be sorry that they have disappointed you then. Given the players respective results on surfaces ,I would not say that any of the results were upsets as such... you could scrap the as such part actually.
