The great Aussy Open for the Serbs continues.

Fat Dave is looking a bit low on energy today, like he didn't eat his McDonalds breakfast.

Re: Nalbo bites the big one against Tipsarevic.

whoops, Tipsy blew three match points while serving for the match at 5-4, then blew a 40-0 lead on Nalbo's serve in the next game. He may be a fatty but he's always a tough one to close out...

Nalbandian def Tipsarevic 6-7,4-6,7-6, 6-0, 3-1 (ret)

Nalbandian is obviously injured and IMO without prospect of getting better soon (since Chennai he has this tendonitis),
He asked trainer twice and he literally couldn't move (except some critical points where you could see how much it cost him). Seems he suffered cramps on his leg due to the effort
There were several balls that ended inches to him and he didn't even try to reach it. Seems that his tendonitis is really serious
I think another player wouldn't have ended the match. On a possitive side... the guy has talent, the things he did walking some of them were incredible. Pity he couldn't do more.

Now with all this Tipsarevic got a heat stroke or something when he was 5-6 in the third and the doctor gave him a pill.

This match was like ER or a similar medical show... one of them couldn't move because he was injured and the other one that was like zombie for moments.. If the ball didn't end on the their feets neither of them could do anything to reach it at the final.



And to Nalbo's detractors...... he showed a lot of gutts: he was 2-5 in the third and saved two matches points, broke Tipsarevic's serve, saved three break points to put him 6-5..... all this when he was just walking because he couldn't run. And the 2-5 to end 7-6 was not due to Tipsarevic's problems, because he was fresh and Nalbo in his worst moment physically speaking.

About Nalbandian's fitness... he's injured, under that heat and he was really fresh while the other player was with nauseas in the tie-break? And he's not the most thinner player of the circuit... He's a nutty case

Tipsarevic... He did what he have to no more but no less, wasn't spectacular or anything. It wasn't a great merit of him but Nalbandian's injury. Still good attitude. And tried to fight.

And get well soon David!

Poor Janko, it was painful to watch, standing too much close to stay in the second round, and then falling to the heat. A great to him. He was the better player the first three sets and deserved to win here, but well, things happen for something.

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:

Props to Nalbandian to stay in the match and get well soon Tipsarevic.

Just shows that rule needs to be changed. Stop play for all ongoing matches if the heat is too much.
This "you have to end the match (and we won't even stop for 15 mins to close the roofs ) even if the heat is unbearable" - rule is a joke and hurting the players, imho!!

"This is not about class, colour or races,
let’s get around and see different places,
put a smile on those distant faces,
wipe away your sorrow with no traces."


All the best to the members of the FedererExpress
