Re: Grass Season Thread 2009

Terrible match from Jo.

I must be the only one around here, but I don't expect anything from Jo on grass. Apart from his serve, he's got nothing to use on this shitty grass that can be found everywhere now, and his movement is as terrible as it was on clay. We'll see where it goes, but I am not holding my breath for this tourney.

Re: Grass Season Thread 2009

I'm glad he went through it I'm joining you here, MacArthur, he's much more at ease on hard. He should win against Bolelli, but I don't see him getting past Karlovic. I hope he will, of course, but when I hear Wilander saying that Jo is the only one who is a threat to Federer in this tournament, more than Murray or Djoko...

Re: Grass Season Thread 2009

I am also glad he went through. I only watched the 3rd set, he played well during the tiebreak, as usual. I dosed off right after the set was over because of fatigue The match was over when I woke up
Jo did seem to have trouble getting around the court. Also, Golubev made some shots look so easy! By the way, I don't think Karlovic is a huge threat, I have this impresion of him as the guy who can lose to pretty much anyone. But then again, top 50players ranked outside of top 20 all fall into this category. I hope Jo can beat Bolelli without too much trouble. He needs to improve his returning skills eventually.

Re: Grass Season Thread 2009

By the way, I don't know how I feel about the beard yet. It'll take some getting used to.

I don't like the beard you're manly enough without it Jo, don't worry

I agree, but if he's in a good serve day he's also capable of beating everyone, if the opponent isn't that good of a returner and is having a day off but you're right, focus on Bolelli first. When do you think they'll be playing, wednesday or thursday ?

Jo, please play better next match Although i like that he pulled this one out on 2 TB's I read on GM that he's already won 20 TB's this year. Impressive.

Re: Grass Season Thread 2009

Tetta, for the beard comment,

And my commentators were saying that Golubev won 1 tie break out of 75 in his career But I think either it was a joke or I didn't understand the number hahaha. Otherwise it's veeery embarrassing

Re: Grass Season Thread 2009

Blimey, I gave Jo the kiss of death didn't I? I said he was playing well and then it all went horribly wrong. Mind you I thought Golubev was quite good, he really fought his corner and that forehand was a ripper! He was like a wasp at a barbecue, he just wouldn't go away. And Marion, sorry my love, but I quite like the beard, loving the hair a bit longer too. Sorry Benoit, we're fangirling We'll talk about his tennis next match, just for now we are all about his appearance
