Legg Mason Monday......

BG's botfriend played dirty today...he called for a medical timeout to throw Mahut off the rhythm (He was getting outplayed) and short rain delay fugged up mahut's rhythm as well......anywayz....nice win at the end for Mahut. He played well and well deserved win today.

Your Winner:



My Pic for tomorrow is, This guy Over Donny Young....He looked awesome practicing with 2 other players today and yesterday...young's not consistent enough to keep trading groundies with him.

Re: Legg Mason Monday......

Big Wayno has had major injury problems and has retired 4 times in the last couple of months so it's harsh to accuse him of faking.

Not sure about Horna on a fast surface. He won't mind the match-up though because Don doesn't have the power game that always troubles him. Don as a fave could never be a bad fade atm anyway.

Tempted by Sela as well. Didn't seem to play badly against Delic last week, just didn't take his chances.

Re: Legg Mason Monday......

why is Schwank favourite to beat Grosjean? He surely doesn't have a whole lot of experience on a surface like this though admittedly he seems to have a big game that could adapt to hardcourts.

Re: Legg Mason Monday......

True but he's never played a hardcourt match at full ATP level in his life as far as I can see and Washington will be a tough place to start due to the speed. Plenty of clay courters who look to have big games that should adap to faster surfaces have failed to make the transition. Almagro for one and more recently Bellucci.

I feel his game will go alright on hard,hard to back someone young n with that kind of lack of experience while Seba will use it as much as he could and find out any weaknesses in Eduardo's game atm!Only a matter of time he starts winning on hard for a period of time,but the time may not be right atm!

Re: Legg Mason Monday......

Grosj is def over da hills now....and so out of SHAPE. When I saw him on the practice court hoffing and puffying trying to run after cross court shots....U can tell he's about 2 steps behind. Prime Days are GONE!

U'd be crazy to back Grosj as a fave.

Re: Legg Mason Monday......

Sela 2.15

always rated this player pretty high...likes the surface and imo hell outplay vinnie from the back of the court with some nice groundstrokes mixed with good movement...onehanded backhand is nice... his serve is pretty weak and thats minus for him......better on challengers that on Atp but will enjoy the matchup.....strugguls with big servers and will be agressive on spadea second serve....sholud be close battle imo so taking Dudi here...hes matchfit so sholud be ready to compete

Re: Legg Mason Monday......

Very dangerous this work boredom

Sela over Vinnay

Think V-Man struggles with this match-up these days and Sela seems to be in decent enough form after winning a challenger in Vancouver. He has a big point to prove after being snubbed by the Israeli Olympic federation.

2.25

Horna over Young

Don't really trust Lucho on this surface but feel I have to fade the Don as a favourite. Don has been spraying errors all over the place recently and if Horna is in half decent form he should be too solid.

2.38

Isner x Serra

Johnny Allserve should be tough to beat in fast conditions and Granollers has barely played on US hardcourts in his life. Failed US open qualification attempt was his last effort. This Ignatik lost to some Italian mug ranked 503 in his last match and this is a huge step up for him. Serra beat Verdasco last week so looks in ok form.

1.67

2.5u on each

WTD: 1-1 (+1.85u)

Re: Legg Mason Monday......

Isn't Washington one of the tourneys where players seem to fix matches? I seem to remember a few cases from the last couple of years.

Mirnyi | Maria K. | Ginepri | Kim C. | Verdasco | Elena D. | Dimitrov | Aga R. | Haas | Ana I. | Tsonga | Sabine L. | Del Potro | Julia G.

29 years ago, one young man conquered the world of Formula 1: Ayrton Senna. You´ll never be forgotten!!!

2012: Year of my TT Comeback
Singles – W: Sarasota, Lexington, Rennes, Challenger Tour Finals F: Orleans SF: Indian Harbour QF: Caloundra, Busan, Vancouver, Istanbul, Medellin, Champaign Doubles – W: Meknes (w/gulzhan) F: Burnie (w/Vilnietė), Sarasota (w/Igorche), Busan (w/Cheeky Chick), St. Remy (w/BrazilTBfan) SF: Indian Harbour (w/Broseghini), Istanbul (w/Mahqz) Won "Challenger Player of the Year" Award

Yeah, Klizan vs Econmondis and Whitehouse vs Vanek were both fixed.
