Re: 2012 Schedule and Cheering Thread: AO Check First Post Please

so there's no need to come and say something at the moment

i'll wait till Juan Martin starts losing to jump-start a conversation that goes nowhere in a matter of minutes

OOOPs sorry I didn't know this Forum didn't like that Some Forums do while others don't so I will remember that this one doesn't like it and not do it here anymore. I'll just say Juan is playing well in his current Match.

I guess it is alright to say GSM Juan over Kohlschreiber 6-4, 6-2, and 6-1

Good win. I saw only the last 25 minutes but he looked good. I think he has no chance against Federer, but at least he is in good form again.

There are no rules Mae- some like it some don't so I was asking for opinions on the matter so we can come up with a solution that might work for everyone.

I saw the whole thing and he played very well, but Kohli just made too many errors. We'll see how he does against Fed. I'm just glad he didn't spend too much time out in the heat for this match. Hmmm, wonder if Fed will be a night match?

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

Don't see him winning this match ( since it will be a slow day time court) but I sure hope he gives the Fed a run for his money. Please.

At the rate the girls are going, this might be an evening match! Dang, I knew I should've just taken a nap when I got home from work.

Juan is done. His groundstrokes are horrible.

Delpo will need a 2009 form to beat Fed but it looks like Fed will take him in straight unfortunately

That's O.K. Dr. Sue. I just didn't know it wasn't liked here. I always do what the people in the Forum like done just as soon as I know what they like.

Re: 2012 Schedule and Cheering Thread: AO Check First Post Please

Those fans who believe he will ever reach another slam final are living in a pink dream world. Juan's movement is out of the top 30 to say the least, his forehand sucks big time. Terrible mental strength at service games.....he is much worse than I expected him to be in this year. We can say he will be lucky with a win here and there. Even a 40 year old Federer would beat him. Oh well, tennis sucks, always the same 3 guys.

Re: 2012 Schedule and Cheering Thread: AO Check First Post Please

Well, for me Delpo didn't suck on this tournament, I mean this surface is never his best. He needs it to be slower or faster, not this. And I think since his comeback last year, Franco may have advised him to stay back before he gets his big ground strokes back and that's how he played most of the matches, in a defensive style. I saw 4 matches of him in this Open and I think his ground strokes are coming back, he's been more aggressive than last year and fear less to take advantage of short balls. And this match against Federer is the most aggressive match I've seen since his comeback last year. So he's regaining his shots, but mentally he's still not there, that's why he can't take chances of the break points and serve a df on set point.

But to me this is all becuz he hasn't played too many big matches last year, the 4 grand slams he played, he didn't play it that well, no big scenario. And this is his first QF in a Grand Slam since his comeback, this is huge, and he's nervous. But he is regaining his form, remember the 2009 QF? The same guy across the net, and he was in great form in 2009, and he only took 3 games outta Federer. This year, he's not in the same form (well Federer isn't neither), and he took 9 (well...), this says he is coming back step after step. So I'm looking forward to the rest of his years, after his ranking's rise, he shouldn't face some big players in the 1st few rounds so this gives him a chance to play himself deep into every single tournament.

Well but no matter what happened we still love him, that's the most important part.

Juan Martin del Potro, James Blake, David Nalbandian, Stanislas Wawrinka, Andy Roddick, Grigor Dimitrov, Mardy Fish
