Re: Attention Seekers Vol. 2012 - ( Y )

I have a feeling that Rosol would have been closer to the top 70 if he'd never been involved in that Wimbledon match. I don't think it's had a positive impact in him at all.

Which is your team in the Liga Adelante?

I agree that they're both incompetent. The ATP would be exposed to everyone if they didn't have these four cash cow big names to hide behind as evidence if their 'success'.

Jovial hangover blues.

I'm remarkably uninterested in the ongoing semi. With luck I may care to watch Fed - Murray later on, but Djoko vs Delpo on this kind of surface = snooze fest.

I'm not watching the semi. I'm watching the Derby della Capitale instead.

Good shit. Shame there doesn't seem to be any take on the current election. Yet.

Sporting Gijón.

Watching Rosol and Phau is more enjoyable, actually tennis played on a semi fast surface. Big Rosol he always questions everything.

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".

Re: Attention Seekers Vol. 2012 - ( Y )

I came about like the grinch to tune into the WTF semi. The surface getting slicker has actually added to making it more watchable. Not impressed by Djoko so far, though it would be fun to see Fed set the record straight against Delpo in the final by employing some basic tactics and playing to his strengths in the matchup. Especially on a surface like this.

Muzz may well have something to say about that, however.

Re: Attention Seekers Vol. 2012 - ( Y )

The surface is slow and Rosol is a hilarious 0/14 break points.

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".

Phau and Rosol is a nice contrast in styles on a reasonably swift surface. I'm not watching, though.

Re: Attention Seekers Vol. 2012 - ( Y )

No need to be sorry when they weren't good enough to stay up. Finally got a good manager in and so far 2 wins, 1 draw and a loss so it's positive. The squad is shit, but has to make do with the crap he has.

It's good that things are coming together. Best of luck.

Re: Attention Seekers Vol. 2012 - ( Y )

Rosol won 12 more points than Phau, which is quite a lot, considering it was a three tie-break match. So I have no idea how he can claim Phau deserved it.

Is this the final move?
