Ferrero 12th time in his career won match after saving MP. This is one of the best record from active players...

Now this is a better thread title!!!

What a fight! Hopefully, TTC will show a delay of the match after the Rafa v. Verdasco! Especially the second set TB!

I know I would hate it if somebody jinxed one of my favourite players.
Sorry to all Acasuso fans.
I'm an idiot.

Thank-you mods for deleting that thread so quickly.

Re: Ferrero def. Acasuso 4-6, 7-6(8), 6-4

i think i read a thread a few minutes before that Ferrerro lost

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Chucho What a choke. He saved four set points in the second set and had 5:2, 6:4 & 8:7 in the tie-break

I was sure he would lose in the tiebreak, but he fought well. Potential match with Nadal now.

Chucho I followed until the 2nd set tiebreak, it seemed he would win that match but he couldn't convert on his matchpoints in the 3rd set.

Chucho should have taken this match.

Good to see Ferrero playing well.

This is a VERY positive victory for JC, recently he had been losing all these tight matches, and finally he wins one saving mps!!! His confidence will get higher and higher, hopefully he can do another Nadal scalp in the next round GO JC!!!

Re: Ferrero def. Acasuso 4-6, 7-6(8), 6-4

Blew 3 mps and one on serve that was an Acasuchoke.

Thanks for the jinx Jiminik, you should wait until the match is over before making threads.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
