DelPo v Rochus stopped for bad light, DelPo threw his shoes into the crowd! Rochus won the 1st set

Erm... I don't think it was done in anger, he wanted to stop and Rochus wanted to carry on but I'm fairly sure the umpire had suspended play just before he chucked his shoes away One of them cleared the stand, hope it didn't hit an unsuspecting passerby! Close match, Rochus might even win!

I'm liking his chances against DelPo more than Rochus tbh!

Re: The Grass is Always Greener on Gilou's Court - 2011

I honestly have no idea if he's really playing that badly, since we don't get to see the match. Sure, the stat didn't look good, it could be the stat person having a bad day and marking everything as UEs . I mean, didn't we heard he didn't play well in the first match, yet the stat sheet completely lighted up with 49 winners and 24 UEs, who knows what stuff that stat person was on that day . So I don't want to make a judgement by looking at the stat sheet. Unless Gilles himself said he played like crap, otherwise, I'm gonna give him a benefit of a doubt, afterall, he played better than the person across the net .

That's all that matters. You don't get extra money or points for playing better.

You only have to win the last point.

I hope they weren't ones he had been wearing. When players throw their sweaty clothes into the crowd it's pretty gross... sweaty shoes would be crossing a decency line.

The way DelPo is playing right now, he won't be tired at all tomorrow, it's easier than a practice session. , must be the new shoes .

Oh it was the pair he'd been wearing, he had to walk from the court in his socks
Not a souvenir I'd be happy to take home but I'm sure there are plenty of foot fetishists who love that sort of thing!

Glad it's DelPo. Wish the OOP would hurry up! If he's not on a TV court I'm going to explode!
