My Queens (Stella Artois) qualies + quarter final pictures.....

All the pics are here ---> http://picasaweb.google.co.uk/adeegee2k/QueensPhotos

Firstly, you have to read my brief, uninteresting observations from today :angel: :cool:

- Hugely disappointing qualifying matches. I don't think any one player stood out. Simon Stadler looked great in his first match at points, but too inconsistent and I see he lost his 2nd round match.

- Biggest disappointment of the day was Mirnyi. A truly horrible performance against Udomchoke. I know his groundstrokes have never been brilliant, but today he looked worse than players I see at my club. Some 2nd serve returns were hitting the back fence. I like Max, but it's getting silly now, I wouldn't be surprised if this is his last year as a singles player :sad:

- Adam Feeney had a couple of good wins today, it's the first time I've seen him but he looked good and seemed very comfortable at the net.

- Gilles Muller is an arsehole. Questioning almost every line call and asking the umpire for confirmation his shots were out even when you could see it a mile away. Also trying to sway line judges with shakes of the head, points etc. Glad he lost :retard:

- Frustrating loss for Jamie Muzza against Kubot. Poor tactics, his serve is a decent weapon on grass but he doesn't get into the net as often as he should. He's not great from the baseline, if I was him I'd play like Jonny Marray used to and just get to the net as soon as you can in every point. Mind you, he held his own until he played a horrific game at 5-6, double faulting twice in a row to blow the set.

- Enough of qualies....Bolelli was hitting with Kunitsyn and joking about Euro 2008. I'm slowly changing my mind about Bolelli, I said a while back I didn't think he'd ever be top 20, but he's got some talent.

- Verdasco and Lopez drew a big female crowd. Verdasco's injury still kind of puzzles me, he looked fine though. I must also commend him, surely one of the nicest guys on tour. Every time I see him with fans he always seems genuinely happy to take pictures/sign autographs, most other players do it but only because they feel they have to, you get the impression that he actually likes it.

- Hewitt/Bjorkman was a bit of a snorefest to be honest, as was Seppi with Vliegen, not the most thrilling sessions I've ever watched. Gonzo was with Lapentti on the next court, this was hardcore stuff :lol: both were pretty much playing it like a proper match.

- Bobby GOAT was in fine form, dismantling Karlovic on the practice courts and then returning later to hand out a lesson to Muzza. On the subject of Muzza, he seemed to be serve-volleying 90% of the time which was interesting, I hope he'll bring it to matches. Also, I know I'm not neutral but a big :yeah: to him, spent a lot of time chatting, signing and taking pictures with fans.

- Not sure how Roddick's shoulder was, I don't think he was going 100% on his serves but he still looked ok, he was playing with Querrey. He was distinctly unimpressed by his young British fanboys who requested his hat, racquets, towel..... :o

- A big :worship: to Andre Sa, without doubt the most entertaining guy on the practice courts. He was hilarious, he started commentating on Ginepri, describing his backhand slice as "Sampras like" and generally taking the piss.

- PHM is a pretty good footballer :hatoff: (video coming). He was hitting with Grosjean. Seb doesn't really have it in him anymore, he's such a good guy though and he looks like he's having fun every time he's playing. Still has touches of class as well. Top guy.

- Safin and Ancic was fun, Marat was being a showman and playing up to the crowd as always. Ancic really needs to sort out this heavy breathing before and after he hits a shot, it's a lot more annoying than grunting. Troicki and Tipsy were also pretty entertaining, Janko was a lot more cheerful than I've seen him in the past and kept making fun of Troicki :lol:

- Gasquet seemed a bit happier than recent weeks, he was hitting with Mahut (who has better groundstrokes than I realised).

Nothing much else, I'll add a few pictures now.....

Yep I saw a bit of him, I never realised he was so small :p

I saw the end of his match against Sweeting, he was very solid. Didn't expect him to beat Qureshi though.

Cool thread Adam. :yeah:

I guess I agree with your observations, at least the ones that I witnessed. Didn't notice any problems for Roddick but I didn't watch him for very long and I didn't see him serve.

I'll post my videos in here as soon as my camera has finished recharging.

Thanks for the report and pics, Adam! :hug:

I still can't believe I missed Marat/Mario/Janko and Viktor all on one court! I don't think I'll get over that for a while.

Agree about Sa, he was great fun.

and yes, all the qualie matches that I witnessed were pretty poor. Qureshi had a good 1st rnd win but then lost in a 3rd set tiebreak in the next round. He was not a happy bunny afterwards. :lol: This must have been when you were watching that practise I missed *curses* because it was one of the last things I watched (bar Verdasco/Lopez practise two).

I saw the end of his match with Quresh, but sorry I didn't take any pics.

He made a couple very good, and important, passing shots in the final set TB and that was that. He also took a nasty tumble just before the TB (serving at 4-5 I think) but seemed to recover.

- Verdasco and Lopez drew a big female crowd. Verdasco's injury still kind of puzzles me, he looked fine though. I must also commend him, surely one of the nicest guys on tour. Every time I see him with fans he always seems genuinely happy to take pictures/sign autographs, most other players do it but only because they feel they have to, you get the impression that he actually likes it.

I'm not one to hang around and get autographs and pictures taken with players, but I always hear great things about Verdasco from those that do. He's very nice to the fans. Maybe he just enjoys the adoration, or maybe he just enjoys meeting and talking to people. :)

Gonzo was with Lapentti on the next court, this was hardcore stuff :lol: both were pretty much playing it like a proper match. YUM :drool:


- Not sure how Roddick's shoulder was, I don't think he was going 100% on his serves but he still looked ok, he was playing with Querrey. He was distinctly unimpressed by his young British fanboys who requested his hat, racquets, towel..... :o

Andy's fans are greedy!! ;o ;o ;o


- PHM is a pretty good footballer :hatoff: (video coming). He was hitting with Grosjean. Seb doesn't really have it in him anymore, he's such a good guy though and he looks like he's having fun every time he's playing. Still has touches of class as well. Top guy.

Really there cannot be enough said about what a great guy Grosjean is. He now spends so much time with the younger French players -- encouraging, being kind, and enjoying all of it.

- Safin and Ancic was fun, Marat was being a showman and playing up to the crowd as always. Ancic really needs to sort out this heavy breathing before and after he hits a shot, it's a lot more annoying than grunting.

The two man whores hanging out! :lol: But seriously, except for having sex with 365 women a year, nothing Mario does is annoying. :angel:

Thanks for the report!! :hatoff:

Thanks Adee-Gee for sharing your experience and your pics, very good ones (esp. Gonzo and PHM). About Verdasco, you are absolutely right, he likes signing autographes and taking pictures, it's not because he has to do it. It's appreciated.

Man, could PHM look any less miserable in your picture? :spit: :lol: I made the same allusion to him last year, in Notts...the man just doesn't know how to smile. :help:

Same goes to Lalo. He did a couple of nice on-court interviews in Dubai, so my guess is that he isn't big on fan attention. :shrug:

I didn't see too much of it, but it's pretty clear he's very talented, even in the short time I was watching he hit some great shots. But he's so damn inconsistent, and he beats himself up every time he misses a shot. He was dictating the match against Sirianni, he was just making too many silly errors.

Very nice pictures and comments. I hope you don't mind that I reposted your snaps of Marat and Troicki on another forum - I gave the photographer and MTF credit. I should have asked you in advance. Sorry for this time.

If you object, I will remove them.

Thanks and your commentary is very enjoyable.

Ok I went again today, here's a few little irrelevant details before I post pictures :angel:

- No surprise Murray pulled out. I watched him practice this morning and he was clearly in pain, couldn't hit his shots with any power and was complaining it hurt when he volleyed. Disappointing but I don't think it'll keep him out for long.

- Roddick practicing with his brother was amusing, I've never seen Andy hit so many winners. And when he wanted to practice his returning, John had to stand well inside the baseline when he served to keep it interesting :lol:

- Rafa puzzles me. I mean, I'm sure he and his team know what they're doing, but.....Why spend an hour hitting groundstokes with Roig, when you know you're playing Karlovic. Surely it might be an idea to get the feel of a big server, no? :scratch:

- Andre Sa is still a legend, hilarious stuff again. Fat Dave seems to like him as well.

- Speaking of Fat Dave.....he started hitting much later than anyone else, and he only finished after the 2nd set of Djokovic-Hewitt had begun. He looked a mess as well :o

- Although I'm not a fan of Gasquet, I have to confess he's gone up in my estimation, he's extremely pleasant.

- Tipsarevic laughed at me when I said he was unlucky to lose to Nole :lol:

- As for the matches....holy crap Karlovic was serving well. One of the most outrageous displays of serving I think I've ever seen. I actually thought Rafa's groundstrokes were bordering on perfection in the first set, and he still managed to lose it. Just incredible stuff from Ivo, if his groundstrokes had been just a little better he'd have won the match. Great fight from Rafa though, his forehand is unreal at the moment, in a different league to last year.

- Djokovic vs. Hewitt was very disappointing. When Nole is playing like that, he'll beat Hewitt every time. He's got the slight weight of shot advantage, and he's solid enough to cope with Hewitt getting balls back. A very impressive performance, but the atmosphere can only be compared to that of a funeral. I'm in the minority that like Djokovic, but his tennis doesn't really thrill me (or the Queens crowd it seems), he doesn't really produce many gasps, just polite applause usually.

- Gasquet against Nalbandian was a very good match, some really good stuff from both players. Richie seems to be back in shape now, I don't think his fans should be too worried. He might not repeat his Wimbledon SF but at least he's got his passion back. Still frustrating that he starts a rally on the service line and just drifts further back during the course of it. Match could've gone either way, just a couple of sloppy errors from Gasquet in the tie break cost him.
