Re: Becker hits 4 DF in a row!

I've done 5 in a row from 40/00 up before...it is doable

But pretty shocking for a world class player I've read that the conditions are pretty horrible though.

Coria. More than once I'll bet, although at least once as I saw it happen against Kiefer in Monte Carlo, when he served for the first set.

I see it's 5-5 now at livescore, so it didn't hurt him that much in the end.

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.

Kim Clijsters at RG against Maleeva (think it was 03). She went on to get bagelled in the first set before winning in 3.

Hilarious match, that. How Coria ever won it I'll never know.

He ended up losing 3:6 5:7.

Agassi is in Las Vegas. Maybe he is thinking about coming out of retirement after watching this...

Re: Becker hits 4 DF in a row!

Okay, I didn't see Becker's DF's, but I'm assuming he hit his 2nd serves with a similar speed to his 1st? With Coria, the sad thing is that they were all slow as hell, but he still couldn't get them in.

Forget Karlovic vs Querrey...Becker vs Coria would be a match to behold

Re: Becker hits 4 DF in a row!

Coria was still dominating the rallies once the ball was in, Kiefer just sucks that much on clay.
