So did ESPN actually show doubles? Or did they show a repeat of some other singles match?

It seems as though they did b/c Pam just referred to it in the ladies match. Also they said they'll be showing the semi tomorrow too. So yay! Come on Twins, Nestor/Zimonjic got upset today so they have a real shot at this.

Re: The "Here's to a Healthy 2009" Cheering Thread!

What a pathetic start to the TB, and then after such a comeback to 6 all they were so shaky in the last 2 points, how the hell did they not win that lost point? they could have finished it in at least 3 occasions!
Yay for wasting 6 break points in the 3rd set, including 4 in one game.

Stupid USTA, should have put this match in the night session, maybe that way the twins would have actually got more support than Paes got.

If the twins have any intention of winning more slams they'll have to do something.

Amazing Paes is one of my least favorite players, including both singles and doubles, he's so obnoxious and hard to like. Ridicuous. And another bad, poor loss for the twins where they had tons of opportunities and didn't take them. Then they keep saying they feel like they're playing their best tennis right now, I don't get it.

I actually think they are playing some decent tennis at times, but they have too many ups and downs and they play poorly on most of the break points and waste too many opportunities

Yeah, well that means they're not playing their very best tennis then

Absolutely, it's ridiculous from them to say it and it's also disappointing because it might mean that they don't know they have to work on their game.

I hope they'll be able to bounce back like they did in Australia, it's a big test for their characters and for their desire for tennis.
Frankly, they could retire tomorrow and nobody would have any complaints about their career but I'd be disappointed if they settled for that.
I mean, surely they must have got that 11-12 Slams goal in their minds! It's very much achievable but they'll have to really work hard.

Re: The "Here's to a Healthy 2009" Cheering Thread!

I was so disappointed with that match (much like most of their year though, so many wasted final wins and chances) to waste all those various BPs, then comeback in the TB and still lose, ugh.

...Fool me three times, either I'm kind of stupid or you're really good at this.

Do you think they actually believe they are playing their best tennis or is it just something they are saying because they don't want to admit they aren't.

Re: The "Here's to a Healthy 2009" Cheering Thread!

I always think -- in general when a player says something like that, yet their play doesn't exactly show it -- that they're just saying it to kind of like keep themselves afloat mentally. I mean, it's not like their results have been completely terrible this year, but to say they're playing their best yet they're not actually winning anything [big] for it, it just doesn't really do much for me in terms of having those words reinforced/believing it.
