Re: The No Expectations US Open Thread

I watched all of Gaston's match. He did really well - I just love his game - he moves so well, and love that bh. And he was pretty calm today.

Got some pictures but haven't downloaded them yet. And I think I got a great video of him at his chair taking down his hair and putting it back up again - very lovely sight.

I'll put up the pictures in the next couple of days if they came out good.

Yes, you are right, he does have to play big Sam.

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".

Congrats!

Any thoughts about big Sam? He may be quite danger with his serve,
but I'm still not sure if he can keep the pressure through the best of 5 match. And again, you never know with Gaston

Re: The No Expectations US Open Thread

Big Sam has a very good future, solid from the baseline and very suited to these conditions more so than Gaston is.

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".

That's right George, but Gatson has much more experience.

Re: The No Expectations US Open Thread

Gaston can lose to anyone, so the experience won't be that much of a factor here. Big Sam has a very good temperament and has everything in his favour and he has been playing and winning matches.

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".
