Ehh... seems that raining, have to watch WTA... and even then Eurosport is showing the wrong match of the 2 :lol:

Kuznetsova is playing so crap, Radwanska as well. But the funny moment was when Kuznetsova missed a smash 1m from the net! And she didn't even hit in in the net, but on the ground in front of her :spit:

Such a poor match... hope this crap ends asap, and Blake - Grosjean starts.

Kuznetsova is out, finally that awful match finished :lol: Eurosport International will switch to Kirilenko - Chakvetadze now. I actually think they will stick with that match, despite Blake - Grosjean will start soon on Vodafone.

Nobody's watching Blake - Seb, or what? So quiet out there this night... :confused:

4:4 in 1st set at the moment.

Grosjean has already won more games that I thought he will win in whole match :eek:
set for him? unbelievable

ASP0315
01-19-2008, 02:40 AM
blake is pathetic. he is standing way forward and returning.

seljanin
01-19-2008, 02:41 AM
Seb's won 1st set 6:4.

Damn, I don't know whom to cheer in this match, these are 2 of my very fav players. I think I will cheer for a 5-setter and big inside-out FHs :)

2moretogo
01-19-2008, 02:42 AM

Blake has never beaten Seb, but they haven't played on a hardcourt. So this isn't surprising.

I like both too... but right now James looks so tight.

but Seb is sooo poor nowadays

seljanin
01-19-2008, 02:48 AM
but Seb is sooo poor nowadays

Well, it's true. But today he is playing like that guy, who I saw for the 1st time some 6 years ago and thought to myself - wow, this guy can certainly move his feet and hit a massive inside-out FH :yeah:

2moretogo
01-19-2008, 02:48 AM
Yeah, but Seb still can change the direction of the ball well and he takes it early. Plus, it is always hard to get your first win on someone you've played but never beaten.

hallso
01-19-2008, 02:48 AM
everything in this match depends on Blake, he decides who wins

ASP0315

01-19-2008, 03:02 AM
If he not come back right here, Match is over

jcempire
01-19-2008, 03:03 AM
James got to have a break at least in 2nd set, that bring his confident back

tennisgal_001
01-19-2008, 03:03 AM
And he holds, so maybe not a bagel

jcempire
01-19-2008, 03:04 AM
The big point is the positive energy, He got get this thing back, other wise game is over

Let's go james

martinatreue
01-19-2008, 03:04 AM
loved that inside out sliced and flicked backhand passing shot winner that Grosjean hit while retreating from the net. And that was done from a man who normally hits 2-handed. Wow. Hope Grosjean wins.

Why is tennis on both TTC and ESPN2? And why are they just talking on ESPN2 and not showing Gonzo's match? Surreal, I feel so sorry for those who don't have TTC, where they actually show live tennis.

I get that, but they were saying that James was happy the roof was closed and Seb had said that he didn't know the Austrailan Open was played indoors. (I think at the beginning of the match the rain had stopped for a bit).

Gonzo received a warning for racket abuse, where's A-Rod and Emmanuel Joseph on this one?

Some stats, Cilic - Gonzo

1st serve: 55% - 64%
Aces: 4 - 0
DF: 1 - 5
Winners: 19 - 6
UFEs: 9 - 12

5-0* Blake, things are looking better for him now.

Cilic is completely crushing Gonzo's second serve, he's won 17% of second serve points.

That wouldn't be such a bad thing. Seriously though, Pascal seems like a more imposing figure, less intimidated by the player's ranking/stardom, etc... I don't think he would've fined him, I actually doubt umpires are encouraged to fine players who sell tickets, but he probably would've shushed Roddick one way or another and told him to stuff it!
