norman holds to make it 2-1*

could end up with 2 tiebreakers at this rate, but even so i would say the much longer odds on norman are even more generous with the 50/50 nature of a tiebreak.

if he can't win a point on his opponent's 2nd serve he won't win any tiebreak

norman kown as one of the worst return and baseline players on tour. not much of a surprise.

Bilbo
07-14-2007, 06:42 PM
no way norman is going to win. you can see that after 10mins only.

Bilbo
07-14-2007, 06:44 PM
norman is horrible on the baseline rallies. he can barely move at his age.

Norman is worse than I thought. He looks all of his 36 years out there. Maybe 2 tough 3 setters in the last 2 days was too much for his ageing body?

Jaap
07-14-2007, 06:47 PM
Keep them double faults coming, Mahut.

07-14-2007, 06:47 PM
Norman is worse than I thought. He looks all of his 36 years out there. Maybe 2 tough 3 setters in the last 2 days was too much for his ageing body?

he's serve only and has to hope for service winners to win a match

8/9 but it was a DF :lol: Unbelievable statistic!

Bilbo
07-14-2007, 06:52 PM
norman should retire after this match. grass is his only chance to win a match these days. he would be 37 next year.

Albop
07-14-2007, 06:53 PM
norman only won 2 pints with mahut serve

and one was a DF :lol:

Bilbo
07-14-2007, 06:54 PM
mahut 11/12 on 2nd serve

usually mahut has a bad 2nd serve

Jaap
07-14-2007, 06:56 PM
No chance for Norman unless he somehow manages to win in two tie breaks.

danielj
07-14-2007, 06:56 PM
wow without being too unkind to norman he is very bad! doesnt even have average groundstrokes they barely exist to be honest.

Albop

5-4 mahut

Bilbo
07-14-2007, 06:58 PM
wow without being too unkind to norman he is very bad! doesnt even have average groundstrokes they barely exist to be honest.

he can barely move. he is serve only. reminds me of arthurs.

Bilbo
07-14-2007, 07:00 PM
mahut must laugh his ass off to play such a bad player in a semifinal

Jaap
07-14-2007, 07:00 PM
LOL, Mahut 12/13 on 2nd serve and the only point lost was a double fault.

I think that shows the Norman returning ability.

Bilbo
07-14-2007, 07:01 PM
worst returning in history

never seen 12/13 before

danielj
07-14-2007, 07:01 PM
i do find those stats a little strange though considering he was eating up aisams 2nd serve in their match, obviously different class of player but hes been awful so far. Only consolation is that hes serving first again.

Bubbahotep
07-14-2007, 07:02 PM
norman should retire after this match. grass is his only chance to win a match these days. he would be 37 next year.

That's why he won most his matches on clay the past 2 years, stupido:eek:
Boy Berrer must have been really bad to lose against old Dick then:confused:

But yeah, Daniel, Dick is weak on return today:o

Bilbo

Norman's only hope is to get it to a tie break and hope Mahut serves some double faults.

Jaap

Not even a run for my money.

Jaap

C'mon DICK time to wake up

Bilbo
07-14-2007, 07:18 PM
Impossible for Norman to win if he can't get any points on the opponents serve.

i knew it after the 1st service game of mahut that it's a bad sign for norman if he can't win a single 2nd serve point out of 4. usually mahut isn't that good on his 2nd serve against anybody.

Jaap
07-14-2007, 07:21 PM
Yesssssssssssssssssss he won a point on Mahut's serve.

Bilbo
07-14-2007, 07:21 PM

norman is the definition of a serve only player if there ever has been one

Jaap

Norman serving at 80% and Mahut 49% yet Mahut still easily winning.

Bubbahotep
07-14-2007, 08:04 PM
Yes Jaap he returns better and we might have a tight third set with less unforced error from Dick.
He may be a bit stiff on the legs but his all-round play is normally better (fortunately):cool:

Jaap

mahut 11/12 on 2nd serve

usually mahut has a bad 2nd serve


:haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha:

"He is really surprising because of the strength and the precision of his second serve" (Roger FEDERER, Wimbledon 2006)

"He looks like a kamikaze : he serves on second balls exactly as if he serves first balls ! And he is never out ! Really amazing. Is he crazy ?" (Andy RODDICK, Queen's 2007)

"He is unbelievable. His second serve is his best game, without hesitation" (Rafael NADAL, Queen's 2007)

:haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: :haha:

"He is really surprising because of the strength and the precision of his second serve" (Roger FEDERER, Wimbledon 2006)

"He looks like a kamikaze : he serves on second balls exactly as if he serves first balls ! And he is never out ! Really amazing. Is he crazy ?" (Andy RODDICK, Queen's 2007)

"He is unbelievable. His second serve is his best game, without hesitation" (Rafael NADAL, Queen's 2007)



but "usually mahut has a bad second serve" :haha: :haha: :haha:

so why has he usually under 50% 2nd serve pts won?

The point following the serve is not the serve itself ! Everybody charaterized Nico by his second serve, the best in the world for many and many great players ! He is the player who can make ace on second serve so much than on first serve...
But the serve is not the whole point no ? A statistic like that is not credible... Just look at the statistic which will give you the second serve pourcentage, their strength etc...

Vlado Zagreb !
I was watching Frank and Santoro match in New-Port R.I.
Santoro is just Magic. He can do anything from any position.
Grass surface in New-Port is perfect for his style of game so I woldn't be
suprised if he Wins this tournament.

Superb tennis from Santoro. He may have a shitty serve, but the old man can play some tennis. Think he will beat Mahut in the final.

It looks like he has a shitty serve , but it's acurate, placement perfect, different spins all the time, so it's so hard to break or attack for any player.
