Re: Post AO Season Thread 2009

Congratulations Jo on winning 4th ATP title! Incredible 19-3 match winning record this year, more than any player so far. Have a good rest this week and all the best of luck for Davis Cup tie - I will definitely be rooting for France this year.

Jo takes the first set again Stepanek 7:5, doubly satisfying

Re: Post AO Season Thread 2009

Jo proved here how a great champion he is.Very solid mentally to save the french team ass after the gilles loss against berdych.
Great game worthy of a top5 player that I think he is right now.

He said that the some in the crowd was cursing at him,that it was not easy but that he needed to get himself angry to produce the best out of him lol

he could also play doubless if forget ask him to do so and even climb in the top of the stadium to win if it is posible

ALLEZ JO!ALLEZ FRANCE!

Bravo Jo!!! That's the kind of uflifting spirit that the team needs! Tough luck for Simon in first rubber, but I think that's down to inexperience - I'm sure he'll redeem himself on Sunday.

Good luck for doubles today!

Re: Post AO Season Thread 2009

Sad result for the French team, especially as Jo would have clinched the tie in a live deciding rubber.

The French Davis Cup was genuinely a "dream team" - it's almost as if they were spoiled for choice, such was the quality of individual players.

I think the doubles rubber was the deciding factor. The Czech team made a very bold decision to front their two singles players, at the risk of tiring them for the Sunday singles matches. But, it paid off because they found themselves 2-1 up and France was on the back foot, fighting for survival on Sunday.

I honestly don't blame Simon, he did what he could, and now he can really understand the impact of Davis Cup matches and the whole atmosphere behind it. Better luck next year.

Re: Post AO Season Thread 2009

I agree Turquoise, Gilles had a real baptism of fire, French number one and most of the DC pressure all in his very first DC. Such a shame for the team but let's hope they come back bigger and stronger next year.
