Re: Clay Courts are back! :D

I was sooo mad when Jo failed on serving for match!
Beautiful match though.

Re: Clay Courts are back! :D

Nice match from both guys. Jo was slightly lucky to get the win finally, specially after failing to serve it out. 48% 1st serves. But yay for another clay court win. (What is it, like 5 wins now? )


I need a favour from one of you. Jo's website has been very sloppy in putting up English translations to his interviews. Can someone please translate this bit for me?

Google translator is pretty confusing.

Love it.


Saw the match. So many BPs on Jo's serve! But he pulled through which is what matters in the end.

We need Gaël around here. He'll be our insider to post shirtless Jo pics
Nice win. Keep it on !


About your translation, greenhopper :
"When the subject is clay, hard not to mention Rafael Nadal."
"For me, he's still the absolute master on this surface. He wouldn't be happy if we said otherwise." (meaning saying otherwise wouldn't be the truth)

Thanks, Keijan. I wouldn't get this distinction from an online translator. Thanks much!

Re: Clay Courts are back! :D

The first match against Almagro was a great test for Jo. I'm delighted that despite his initial struggles on serve, he dug in resolutely and ultimately prevailed. I'm also pleased that he learned his lesson about moving on despite feeling aggrieved about that horrendous call (the serve was in and both the umpire and Almagro pointed to the wrong mark).

Good luck against Ferrero, Jo. Tough match, but just believe in your strengths.
