HopCup

Anyone going to watch Taylor at the HopCup? TTC starts it's coverage on Monday and I wan't wait to see Taylor back in action. The sucky thing is they won't be showing U.S. vs Serbia. I'll be cheering Taylor on the whole time and Lisa too of course.

Oh no yet another person that can get The Tennis Channel!
I use DirecTV and they won't carry The Tennis Channel I have phoned them and e-mailed them, but still no Tennis Channel I would love to see Taylor play especially since he was doing some serious training to get in good physical shape for the start of the 2006 season. I guess I will just have to check on the scoring for the Tournament

Re: HopCup

hi OddJob! I get TTC but unfortunately home with the family now and don't get TTC here and I won't be back til the end of the Cup so I dunno if I'll get to see Taylor or not - I hope so! I'm really curious to see this new and improved fitness of his and how his game looks.

I really feel for u Mae! It sucks that DirectTV doesn't carry it.

I can't wait to see how Taylor plays either. A fitter Taylor is a happier Taylor. Haha as you know Debstah TCC wil shows those matches over and over again so I'm sure u'll get to see him in action.


I hope Taylor and Lisa do well against Serbia. I def think they're going to beat them. On the WTF the Serbian team is way tooo over hyped. Most people don't give Taylor a chance vs Novak. Tho i do see Ana beating Lisa but Taylor will come through and they'll win the mixed.

Re: HopCup

Taylor should win that match. I like Djokovic (or what I've seen) but Taylor should do well on the Rebound Ace surface and stuff.

that's true, everything will probably be repeated a lot lol. Except that they're covering several other tourneys so maybe not as much. Oh well, hopefully I get to see one of his matches at some point

Re: HopCup

Taylor def Novak 6-1 6-4! Great way to start '06 for Mr. Dent. Taylor also won the dubs with Lisa 7-6(7-3) 6-2.

Re: HopCup

Good indeed. Except that three people whom I trust who were watching on TV all said he didn't look any fitter. And that is extremely disappointing

That's not good news at all. He plays really well with these few extra pounds imagen how he would play if he was actually fit. I personally like his tummy but that doesn't help Taylor at all. He's more prone to injurey in the current shape he's in. Jen should crack the whip and get him inshape.

Re: HopCup

Well I'm glad he won But I agree if the people that were able to see him are right about him not being in better shape that is extremely disappointing Of course, Taylor is a big built person and I don't know if it's harder for people like that to lose weight or not

Re: HopCup

Yea, it is. You can only do so much with your genes, it's not his fault if that's how he's built. But he can be big-boned and large-built and still get into good shape. It's hard to tell from pictures... his face may look a little thinner. Some people on GM seemed to think he was moving a bit better..... so maybe he is a big fitter, but doesn't sound like it's markedly or noticeably so.

Re: HopCup

And I think the fact that he is big boned and big built hurts him also because it seems like people that are just bigger in size aren't able to handle heat that well So I think everything together just tends to work against Taylor. And I don't know how hard Taylor is working to try to overcome his situation.

Re: HopCup

Taylor played well against Yuri 6-2 6-0. His movement looks like it's improved. He also seems to be a few pounds lighter.

Re: HopCup

He looked pretty fit to me! Still a little big, but that is the way some people are built. Didnt look like fat though. Moved around the court nicely and was playing great

Fact of the day : Nutmeg is extremely poisonous if injected intravenously.
