Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

Just a little recall to my fellow jojotards : Jo is playing today at 12H30 (france time) against vincigerra in the ARAG world team cup.

Bet365 is streaming this match it seems, but if you have other streams, share with us of course.

He will play at least three matches there before Rg, three matches to find his rythm on clay. Allez Jo !

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

www.tennislive.tv has awesome livestreams, but I'm not sure it will work outside of Germany.
They will probably have the matches on demand, though, they always do.
So far they only have a short video about the "open day event" yesterday, you can spot Jo practicing with Jim, but really just a few seconds:

I took a look at the German media, but nothing interesting so far. Jo said they want to win, which I doubt! The final will be on Sunday, I can't believe they want to be back in Paris on Monday only when Roland-Garros has already started.
It's such an odd event, the last round always is a "qui perd gagne" story because the top players want to go to Paris as soon as possible.

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

Sorry, j'ai tout décalé d'un jour dans mon post! The final is on Saturday, but doesn't RG have a Sunday start again?

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

Rg starts on Sunday but normally a pretty limited order of play

my guess is if france reach the finals here then they play on tuesday (hopefully)

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

Jo is scheduled to play at 14:45 (Dusseldorf time) on bet365.
The match before his, Querrey v Schuettler just finished, so he should be up soon.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga v Andreas Vinciguerra
After Jo, Gilles Simon v Robin Söderling.

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

Bad start : too much UEs. Already one break for Vinciguerra who seems to be a classic claycourter.

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

Jo lost the first set 64. But since the beginning of the second, he seems to play better. He broke once, leading 3-1. AND he also showed a few of his fabulous tricks. plus a serve at 201km/h. Fingers crossed!

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

I'm only watching since 1-1 in the second or something, but Jo is looking pretty good here, sharp and even pretty fast. Did he wake up since the first set or was the swedish guy very good?

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

He was terrible in the first, even if the swedish was playing pretty good (1 UE in the first 5 games !).

Now he is frustrated by his footplay and his unability to close the match once and for all. But I think it's just a matter of time.

The poor wino has the ears in pieces

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

He is playing really good on his service game, but he needs two other matches like this one to catch his rythm for good for RG, I reckon.

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

His return games have been quite poor though for the moment.

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

Jo won: 46 63 64.
I think it took him about 45 minutes to find rhythm and get into winning zone today. I also don't think Vinciguerra was exceptionally good. I think Jo needs more match practice on clay.
I wonder if he'll play doubles? Ok, I'm off to watch Nadal-Federer now.
