Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.25

Yes just came back from there, I do indeed have strep throat. Have to take lots of meds now and I will probably raise a fever later on today so am trying to get all my work done now, not going well.

Yup much better to have it when you're a teen but I've already had it then too. Thanks though.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.25

Does anyone know if Tsonga was injured as he claims not to have been although his performance was very weak:

Q. Were you fully fit tonight? You grabbed at your stomach a couple of times. Did your stomach give you problems?

JO‑WILFRIED TSONGA: No, no. I was just a bit more tired after the first set. And, yeah, it was tough to play against him today. He was really good, and that's it.

Q. Were you tired because of the previous two five‑setters you've had?

JO‑WILFRIED TSONGA: Yeah, of course. Yeah, because of my tournament, that's it.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.25

No idea Dr Jules, though his post match interview was quite funny at times

Quote:
“Yeah, I learned maybe I have to play better. That's it.”
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga reveals what he’ll take home from his loss to Roger Federer in the Australian Open 2010 semi-finals.
Quote:
After going down to the Swiss maestro 6-2 6-3 6-2 at Rod Laver Arena, Tsonga said he was surprised by how well Federer played - and that if he plays like that on Sunday, nobody can beat him.
Quote:
“I don’t know. I don’t know,” was all Tsonga could offer. When asked if he had any advice for Murray, Tsonga had some simple words of wisdom: “Be ready to run”.
and Roger's...

Quote:

For Murray though, the pressure will be building. At every Grand Slam, Great Britain’s championship drought is dredged up and bandied about by players and media alike. And many are looking to Murray to end this barren run, something that Federer believes could be sitting heavily on the 22-year-old’s shoulders.

“That's the question he probably gets asked quite a bit. [I] wouldn't be surprised if he's a bit fed up by it. I think he's done really well, you know, handling the pressure and considering, you know, sort of the media in England is very strong. So I think he's done great, you know, under the pressure,” said Federer.

“I don't feel like the pressure's really on me having to do it again, because I did it before. I think he really needs it more than I do, you know. So I think the pressure's big on him.

“But we'll see how he's gonna handle it. It's not going to be easy for him, that's for sure.”
Quote:
And Federer knows that he will need to be at his best against an opponent who has beaten him more often than not – a rarity.

“He's consistent,” he says of Murray. “He's one of the best return players we have in the game. He's been able to improve many things in his game that make it harder today to beat him.

See these are the kind of quotes that make me dislike Roger. He just comes across so arrogantly!

Possibly and then it passes to Federer before he plays Murray.Actually that would ruin what should be a great final.

In reality it is probably physical and mental exhaustion as he had never played 5 sets before this week and then played 2 in a row. Today he looked like the walking dead.
