Show some love for the Israeli players

Dudi Sela, a young and promising Israeli player lost today to Safin, after being only 2 points away from a win, apparently there was a super light drizzle and Safin asked for a break, after which he came back and won the match

Lets show him and Shahar Peer some love people....

Re: Show some love for the Israeli players

wtf..What's your'e problem? It isn't Safin's fault that Dudi choked

Sela had to win that match and he didn't

Re: Show some love for the Israeli players

Safin admitted in the interview that the rain wasn't that severe, and he said something like 'I'm not an asshole, but I used the opprotunity..."

He knew he had nothing left in the tank in that set, and needed the break.

As he said, he used the chance, I just wish it was on someone else's expense.

What Dudi need, more than that win over Safin - is a good sponser, the poor kid is broke, traveling without a coach, etc. I just hope today's performance managed to impress someone.

Re: Show some love for the Israeli players

SELA is the one to blame for losing that match and the only israeli player who deserves support is peer

Sigh, I won't argue *that*, I felt so sad for him in the post-match interview, I didn't know he struggled so much money wise.

Tennis Federation, whoever, someone needs to help those young athlethes advance.

I was totally annoyed with the loss the entire day, Sharapova had to fry 3 hours in the heat, but a few drops were enough for a break in Dudi's game? No justice.
