Verkerk not hitting as many aces as he did against Paschinski, but still I think his serve should be just too good for Kratochvil

but lets see what happens in this 2nd set

Verkerk outfucks Kratochvil bigtime in this tiebreak
he hit two aces, inside out forehand followed by a backhand longline winner... great play by Verkerk, he really looks to have fun out there and he looks pumped up and shows his fist after good points

Aleksa's Laydee

well done martin 6-3 7-6 :D:D

Mardyfishfan, can you watch it on TV also? I think you can receive that TV station in England as well via Astra satellite

Neely

Schüttler gets ripped so far... I know Davydenko is capable of playing good tennis on clay and he's continuing there where he ended yesterday against Hanescu

Neely, are you watching this match? Can you let me know how it's going, I only have access to the internet ticker.
Thanks

Rainer Schuettler - Nikolay Davydenko :1 - 4

Neely
04-30-2004, 12:21 PM
yes, I'm watching on TV
Davydenko is playing really good, sending Rainer from left to right (some good dropshots also even Rainer couldn't get)
Rainer didn't find his game yet, makes also lots of errors himself
1st set is gone 5-1

I hope Rainer is improving in the 2nd set

Space Cowgirl
04-30-2004, 12:22 PM
Sounds like he is being destroyed out there :sad:

Neely
04-30-2004, 12:24 PM
looks bad if Davydenko keeps on playing like that :banghead:

C'mon Rainer, get your act together NOW!!

Neely
04-30-2004, 12:32 PM
Schüttler is under pressure the whole time
two winner by Davydenko, one mishit and one unforced error in this game
he doesn't move really well, his legs must feel heavy somehow

Space Cowgirl
04-30-2004, 12:32 PM
aw this is shit, broken already in second set. WTF is up with his serve??

sam
04-30-2004, 12:36 PM
Rainer :eek: Wake up!

Space Cowgirl
04-30-2004, 12:38 PM
bad bad bad. 3 breakpoints on Davydenko's serve and he can't convert

Neely
04-30-2004, 12:39 PM
aw this is shit, broken already in second set. WTF is up with his serve??
yes, he could hit a few more 1st serves, but I don't think his serve is the real problem
it's Davydenko himself

Rainer was close to get a first success with three break points but Davydenko saved (or Schüttler made errors) all of them and makes the game :banghead:
that hurts :sad:

Neely
04-30-2004, 12:48 PM
Rainer had two easy return errors in the net on two 2nd serves of Davydenko
you can't break if you're not even able to get 2nd serves in

Any doubles matches today?

Neely
04-30-2004, 01:01 PM
whenever Schüttler looks to Dirk he is shaking his head in disbelief because he sees Davydenko's brother sitting right behind him
lol, what a joke indeed

Neely
04-30-2004, 01:05 PM
Davydenko double faulted twice and Schüttler gets a break

eek. Come on Rainer!!

Neely
04-30-2004, 01:31 PM
Davydenko looks more and more tired
Schüttler used the whole width of the court to send Davydenko around
it's good, if Rainer wins the tiebreak he could have the edge now in the 3rd set

Neely
04-30-2004, 01:32 PM
great point by Rainer at the net
buzt still *5-4 Davydenko

Neely
04-30-2004, 01:35 PM
Rainer lost :sad:
Davydenko hit a good 1st serve exactly on the line that made it 6-4
on the next point Rainer hit a return into the net 7-4 Davydenko

:banghead:

damn it, if Rainer could get his game working earlier he could have turned this match around because Davydenko didn't look good anymore towards the end of this match

Space Cowgirl
04-30-2004, 01:37 PM
Dammit, I'm sure it would have been a good result if it had gone to 3 sets. :mad: Shitshitshit, I was sooo hoping to be able to see Rainer again tomorrow :sad:

Neely
04-30-2004, 01:44 PM
lol, maybe you can watch Waske tomorrow ;) :lol:

:sad: Rainer.

But, now he will have some time to rest a little bit before the big tournaments coming up.

I will do that, Neely, he's a fighter too!

Fight Ollie!

Waske better win in 2 because he's tired.

come on, Waske!

Irgendwie hatte ich im Gefühl, dass Waske nach Satz1 noch verlieren würde.

4-3 with break to Rochus in third set. Fight Alexander!

Neely

ist schon taff für Waske
naja, ich mein jetzt hat er letzte Woche 3 Challenger Matches gespielt, dann Ende letzter Woche nach München. 3 mal Quali, dann heute das dritte Match im Hauptfeld
Die Belastung ist sicherlich hoch, aber vielleicht packt ers nochmal (im Moment Einstand bei Rochus Aufschlag)

Bilbo
04-30-2004, 03:40 PM
Das Break im 2.Satz war der Genickschuss, weil sein Tank ohnehin schon leer war.

Neely
04-30-2004, 03:44 PM
allerletzte Chance jetzt für Waske um Rochus doch noch zu breaken
*5-4 Rochus

I watched Nikolay play Carlos last week at Monte Carlos on tv, in fact, on clay Nikolay plays a similar game as Moya, likes to run around and hit his big forehand and has a steady backhand too and he is quick....

yes that's right, Davydenko played well. But I think Davydenko was close to collapse because he was in danger running out of gas if his match went to a third set
