Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread
John lost a tough one to Tomic 7-6 (6) in the 3rd. It was a funny match, the first set Tomic didn't have a clue what was going on and looked flat, then called the trainer halfway through the 1st set.
He started well, then the 2nd set he couldn't find a first serve at all and Tomic woke up a bit and made him pay badly.
Went down an early break in the 3rd, but played a great game to get it back on serve. The last was high quality tennis, long drawn out rallies, hitting good depth.
The 8th game at 30 all Johnny went for a backhand down the line, just hit the top of the tape and didn't bounce over, though he got a few lucky letcords as well. He saved 2 match points in the process, but Tomic took the 3rd one.
There were some absolute goose calls from the officials, one serve was so far in that Tomic gave it, another one a slow lob was out by at least 4 balls length and wasn't overruled.
Bascially 2 sets of crap and a high quality last set.
John has pulled out of the first Moroccan challenger.
“ 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".
Machado wins 6-2 6-1
I definitely would have preferred Gaba winning as he needs the points much more, but Jan would have beaten him anyway. I expect Hajek to destroy Machado, like 6-1 6-2.
