Re: 2012 Schedule Next Up : Marseilles Feb 20-26

At least he has some time to relax.

Re: 2012 Schedule Next Up : Marseilles Feb 20-26

I just want him to play well. If he has his forehand, he can beat anyone but against Fed he didn't have his forehand. I don't know, I'm thinking if he has a tough first match, it will give him confidence to power through. Idk, let's hope! I might be on at the same time to post during the match.

True, but I think winning this tournament with the way Denko and Tsonga are playing is a big ask right now, regardless of how much rest he gets. Then again, I never root against my boy, so we'll see what he looks like tomorrow I guess! Hoping for a good stream here in the U.S. at least....

Theresa, I think his serve let him down more than his forehand on Sunday. He was clearly very nervous, and usually the first thing to go when you're nervous is your first serve.

That's also true, sweetie. I find his nerves are the worst against Roger. Against Rafa and Nole, he usually keeps his cool, poor thing.

Re: 2012 Schedule Next Up : Marseilles Feb 20-26

That's why I say that he needs to cut out the buddy-buddy, practicing with Roger, showing deference to him b/c he's the GOAT, nonsense. Like what Lendl did with Murray this year, stopping the "futbol" matches with Nole during the AO fortnight...Davin's gotta come up with some mental defenses like that for our boy, or the H2H will only explode further in The Arrogant One's favor.

Lost 1-6 4-6. Better play in the second but just could not convert on Bp's. As I said prior- the Gods were not with him today.

Oh and btw- he has made it to last 8 or better every tournament this year to date.
Unfortunately the match thread is closed on GM so that's why I comment on the match in here:

Who knows what would have happened if JM would have broken already in the 1st game? But Roger was really excellent in the first set whilst JM was able to raise his level during the match. I was always afraid he would break Roger in the 2nd set and we would get an open match then

It was a great week for JM and the crowd really loved him. It was the first time I got to see him play live and I hope to be able to see him again one day

There's a lot of respect between Roger and JM.

Good luck to your man for this season

Carlita, it was so nice to see you again Hope you enjoyed the final despite the outcome

All I have to say is just this: +1

It was fantastic to witness how much loved Juan Martin was in Rotterdam, and how much he appreciated the crowd's appreciation for him.
Hope he'll come back next year.

Good to know. I have my *supposedly* last training session tomorrow morning, so I hope I am DONE by the time his match starts. Since I am doing these by myself, we'll see how long it takes me, I'm hoping an hour per patient and there are 4 patients scheduled, IF they show up on time. I want this training to be OVER! I want my life back!

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.
