The percentage was low, but the speed was not so bad today, I glanced like 196k/mh more than once...

And that when his serve was off, everything went wrong for him and that his opponents knew it or something like that... But that when he serves well, then he manages to be far more agressive... I agreed with that too. When his serve is off everything seems to go downright from there for him and when it's on, his game tends to be more offensive...

I explain very badly but i hope you'll get my point too...

His average first serve speed used to be more than 200 km/h, I think. Stupid elbow.

Yup, it's that guy.

However, he also said that Richard returns serve pretty well.

It used to be true. Hopefully it will be the case on clay...

BTW, I'm pretty certain he'll pull out of Estoril, considering how he has little injuries here and there.

oh yes, that is easy to understand, it even works for a humble tennis idiot like me.

Ljubicic tomorrow...I think it's about time he claimed another top 10 scalp

Re: O_o_O_o_O Claycourt Season O_o_O_o_O

I have a good feeling against Ljubicic since it's on clay and not indoor hardcourt.

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: O_o_O_o_O Claycourt Season O_o_O_o_O

Well, two wins already gets him some points, I think, but it'd be nice if he could beat a top 10 player here. It'll be tough, though, the shoulder/serve is a critical factor.



I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.

It's nice to see him winning in straight sets and relatively quickly for a change! Hopefully he can do some damage against Ljubicic tomorrow!

I would LOVE to see him beat Ljubicic - this is his chance, on the clay. But somehow all my favorites are having a tough time this year, maybe I should stop cheering for him.
