Awesome comeback James! Becker saved 15-40 to go up 3-1 and I thought that was the end it for James. I took a shower and came back to see James up 2-0 in the third. Great win James! The final is in your hands now. Just watch out for the Toad.

He will struggle to get to the final, and even then he is not beating Fed. :p One can dream though!! :angel:

Yeah, beating Fed in the final is like mission impossible but I hope that tired and crestfallen Fed won't reach final this time ;) :angel:

he won't get past soderling and i think james shouldn't be in a final of any grass tournament

he has a good game for grass, likes to finish points quickly, good serve, great return and decent volley

I think he struggles with the low and sometimes uneven bouncing balls. Otherwise he has underachieved on grass as like you said he has the game to do well.

That, plus his movement on grass is suspect at best.

Lucky James but a good start to the grass season anyway. :yeah: A win's a win. I almost hope James loses before Roger gets to him though, because I fear an angry Swiss Mister will take all this past months' frustration out on James and beat him senseless. :scared:

As if James isn't known for his own mental flakiness.
