Re: US Open Series 2009

Shame he had a brain cramp on the set point, he deserved to take that at least. Man those dropshots were awful. He's fighting really well though.

edit : why is Ferrerro dressed like a ballboy?

Re: US Open Series 2009

His reaction in L'Equipe, he says he's lacking match practice. He's also aware he should attack his BH more.

Re: US Open Series 2009

The journalist tells him he won the most spectacular points of the match, but unfortunately not the last one.
"Who cares about beautiful points? Only the win counts." He's lacking match practice, took a poor start, JCF was very good too. He tried to adjust, but too late. He saw that JCF was missing a lot of volleys yesterday, so he was trying to make him come to the net, but he persisted too much in doing that. And he needs to get his bearings, his movement is too purely "lateral" on his backhand side while he needs to go more into the ball (I don't know how to say all those technical things in English, sorry). He knows that his shots will have more weight if he does so.
It has nothing to do with his movement being hampered by the knee, it's just a mental thing.
He's disappointed by the way he handled the tie-break too, his lack of match practice showed again then.
But he thinks he is in the right frame of mind and is glad to have another chance to do it better nex week already.

Re: US Open Series 2009

2nd match of the day on Center Court, at least it's at a decent time for the Europeans.

4th match between them, Karlovic retired in Sunrise, then Gaël beat him in that Monte-Carlo match where Karlovic didn't hit an ace, but I don't know if Karlovic was completely fit, and he took his revenge in Nottingham but this time Gaël clearly had a problem with his shoulder.

I remember Karlovic made a stupid statement after their last match in Nottingham, poking fun at Gaël for being always injured, so please shut him up, Gaël.
