Re: *Olympic Games*

No no, it was raining, it's written on the FFT website. And at 1 o'clock it was decided to suspend the match for today.

So Eurosport is not complete that was strange ! So good night to the players lol

Both team held their serve until 4-4 and they broke just before the rain. If i make no mistake it's Micka on serve. But Ram-Erlich can always win.

Re: *Olympic Games*

Thanks to everyone for the details!
Was there actually a live stream? I've heard there are cameras only on courts 1-3
So the match was suspended due to rain? Would be pretty stupid to stop it because of late hour as it started too late anyway.

Now no choking, please

Yes they stopped because of the rain and didn't restart because of the time.

The match seems to be rescheduled as the last match of the evening session on court 7. http://results.beijing2008.cn/WRM/EN...08-08-12.shtml It will finish late again tomorrow especially if they're choke

Micka seems also to play in the evening session (2nd match)

Re: *Olympic Games*

thanks for all the reports. it seems so hard to find out what's going on, although you'd think that for an olympics event, there should be tons of websites around the world reporting scores and news.

last night i went to the official website result page, guess what i got! please come back another time because we're updating the page... something like that (in 3 languages)

well the frenchies are doing a lot better than i expected! lol just hope that micka won't be too tired after tackling andreev, because erlich/ram can still make a comeback.

You're not superticious lol Micka plays again a three sets match. He will be tired tonight and Erlich and Ram have always their chance in this match. If there is a third set they can win for sure !

Unbelievable

Micka worries me a bit... "I was up to play for 5-10 minutes at the most, my shoulder was tired, I've lost quite a bit of energy in the last 24 h" - and tomorrow it will be his 5th match in 3 days Ok, at least it's not the Bryans but the "Murray's family".
