Re: §_§_§_The Season 2008 Down Under_§_§_§

I don't believe Gasquet/Tsonga defeated the Bryans.
Time for Richie to defeat the best in singles is approaching.


Good luck Richie against Lindahl.



Not a bad draw for him at AO. Hope he takes full advantage of it.

Re: §_§_§_The Season 2008 Down Under_§_§_§

WOW ! Impressive win guys !

I think Jo Wif won a point for Davis Cup. Considering Clement current from i would not be surprised if Forget select this team : Gasquet/Tsonga/LLodra, Australian Open chosing one of Grosjean and PHM.

___________________________________________

To come back to Australian Open, i found few informations about Lindahl.

he is 19 and was finalist there in junior in 2006 (lost to Sidorenko)
He won 2 futures (in Australia and Indonesia ) and reached 3 finals in 2007, and had a pretty decent end of year with two 1/4 final in challenger. But his highlights are a victory against Young in Yuba city (CHAL) and Querrey in Bangkok (ATP).
Let's be frank, nothing impressive and the one who is worried must have spent his New Year 2000 in a bunker.

Concerning his game, I don't know much, only what i found in his dedicated thread.

He didn't volley much on the grass either. He does have top 100 potential though, if he works hard and develops some weapons.

Good luck to him at the AO, but I fear Gasquet will crush him

"Plays single-handedly off both wings"? He's hitting a double-handed BH in the picture.

Allez Richard and Jo!!


What a great result in doubles, beating best team in the world by coming back from 6-9 down in Super Tiebreak!


I hope they will play more in the future together.

Does anyone have a video of this match?

Thanks for the OOP
Hope Richie and Jo didn't party too much after their victory - just a day to recover.

Not that I can see it - that will start for me about 1 am, if I'm figuring out the time difference correctly. But doesn't really matter if I wanted to stay awake and watch it I couldn't cuz the only coverage I will be able to get in US is ESPN2 and I'm SURE that Richie's match will not be shown - maybe if he made it to the semis, ESPN2 would show it. Probably not then either, they would likely show an "enlightening" interview with Maria Sharpovia's dress designer or something equally as interesting

Does anyone knows a live stream available in the US (and not ESPN 306 which my internet provider doesn't have)?

ESPN2 will probably not show Richie's first match so I think I will buy a daily pass on the AO site. I think they will show his matches from 4R forward though.

Wimbledon Upsets:
Safin def. Djokovic 6-4, 7-6, 6-2
Schuettler def. Blake 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4
Kudryavtseva def. Sharapova 6-2, 6-4
Tipsarevic def. Roddick 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6
Dancevic def. Nalbandian 6-4, 6-2, 6-4
Zheng def. Ivanovic 6-1, 6-4
Tanasugarn def. Jankovic 6-3, 6-2
Radwanska def. Kuznetsova 6-4, 1-6, 7-5
