Re: Thursday OOP + SCORES

Roddick on Verdasco:

"He's nasty. Throwing another Spaniard at me. You know, we had a tough match in Indian Wells, and he was getting the better of me in Miami before I had to stop. So, you know, it's going to be a tough one. I'm going to have to keep my level up. Not really. I mean, I think he's a very, very good young player, you know. The only thing missing is a little bit of consistency with him in his results. You know, but as far as just on paper, you know, forehands and backhands, I mean, he's very, very good."

One performance shouldn't be overrated in the overall context of things, it was a good performance his best ever in Europe on clay, but that was then.

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".

Yeah, you know, I mean, you know, you know what I mean, I guess, you know, what I am trying to say, you know, is that I am scared of him, I mean I'm s***ing my jocks.

Re: Thursday OOP + SCORES

GWH Andre outplayed Richard. Give him credit. Richard doesn't do himself any favors by standing so far back. I knew he would lose base on that fact alone. Only the most experience clay players can do that and survive against Andre. Verdasco will win not because of defense but because he is just offensive on clay too. I say straight set win for him.

Very well put there into everymans language.

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

There is enough collective love of Agassi around the world, to feed the worlds population 15 000x over, it doesn't need me to give him credit. Gasquet was too much in awe to do anything, oh Mr Agassi I can't beat you cause you are my idol.

Re: Thursday OOP + SCORES

Actually Federer is his idol. He stood too far back and put himself on the defense way too much. That shit will only work if you are playing against a clay courter but when playing against someone like Andre who can turn the clay courts into hardcourts on a nice sunny day, that is not a good idea.

I am sure his confidence gave out because of this and then he started to fall in love with Andre. The positioning on the court was the start of that snowball effect.
