Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

YAY! Jo's playing aussi open! I didn't get a chance to watch the match but I saw some pictures. I think it's the shorter haircut that makes him look like he gained weight maybe? I hope he'll be in in good form throughout the tourney, fingers crossed.
Good Luck Jo!

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

Jo prevailed 6-7, 7-6, 7-6, 6-2 over Ljubicic.

I'm very concerned though, because he kept grabbing his back, his buttock, upper leg... he must be in a lot of pain, and overnight the stiffness is bound to get worse. I'm praying that he recovers for the third round against Sela.

Jo continues to impress me with his fighting spirit. It was also wonderful to hear and see the support of the crowd - he's really won a lot of hearts.

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

Wonderful win, but I am absolutely exhausted from the tension now.

A little less drama next time, please, Jo.

I think we need to wait for the injury report or for the slam predictions. I must say that Lyubo played unbelievably well most of the match, exactly like he used to when he was number 3 in the world. But Jo was far from perfect in that match. He has room to improve, even if his mental edge is right where it needs to be.

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

match against ljubicic was really entertaining. especially the last set jo was on fire. i hope his back holds up. he seemed considerably less jumpy and i think he's giving less than full force so that his back doesn't act up. still huge forehands, of course.

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

I've managed to watch both of Jo's matches and have been really impressed with him, he plays with such heart. I hope he stays healthy as he seemed to be clutching various body parts as though he was in pain. Best of luck Jo for tomorrow.

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

Great win against Ljubicic, just hope the back isn't giving him too much trouble today. Good luck against Sela Jo.

Re: The Australian Season Thread 2009

Dudi Sela can be an unknown quantity but Jo will prevail I have absolute faith in his confidence,thats what was lacking last year .I hope he reaches the top five this year,he has a chance because he missed Wimbledon and Roland Garros plus Jo s game is best suited for grass.
Good luck Jo!!
