Re: The Gasket Blowers Chat Thread: Two steps forward, three steps back

Just telling it as it is.

Seriously I feel he is too complacent with his results. He practically said it was okay to do badly in other tournaments because he did well at Wimbledon. Also there have been articles that said his dad doesn't really push him and let him move at his own pace. His father instilled in him that winning is secondary to beautiful tennis. His coach doesn't look like he push Richard either. I'm worried this complacent/laid back attitude will hurt him. (It has already I think) He's already 21. If he keeps accepting mediocrity he won't acheive anything imo.

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

Re: The Gasket Blowers Chat Thread: Two steps forward, three steps back

Yeah I know.
Looks like his dad spolies him in another way Djoko's dad does.
I think he doesn't have an ardor with winning every match. Certainly he wants to be top 10 or something, but seems he doesn't believe in himself that he's capable of being NO.1 in the world even though he's been told he has enormous talent. On the other hand, with limited talent, Djoko always believes himself he can do that, which is really good for him and made him be where he is now. And the better Djoko has results, the more ambitious he will. I hope Richard has the attitude Djoko has.

I know. Richard has so much talent but his attitude leaves much to be desired. If only he can match his fighting spirit with his tennis he can be #2 for sure.

Re: The Gasket Blowers Chat Thread: Two steps forward, three steps back

I betted on Robredo match.

My friend's sort of bf is leaving for Oregon on Monday and she's sad about it. I bought her a card and some candy/gum to cheer her up. I don't what else to do. But I think she can find better though. She always think that she has to settle for less because no classy guys will like her.

Your friend needs to be confident like Richard should.

Yeah. And he's an illegal immigrant with no job and doesn't speak English. He's not even that cute. I don't know what she sees in him. I'm kinda happy that he's leaving though because when she's dating him, she spend less time with me.

How even did they meet with each other? Was there a spark between them?
