The umpire is an idiot! :mad:

He robbed Willy a clearly wide ball, on his own line, and on top of that, after he was cocky about it with Willy, claming he should have stopped the point which was impossible since Cañas was running from side to side.

That point costed Cañas the break and the set.

A totally unprofessional guy.

and once more Davydenko is tired as hell and called the trainer

same shit like in Munich this year... after a good run and after just a few three set matches, Davydenko totally runs out of gas

I mean, Davydenko just played one round the week before in Sweden... normally he shouldn't have problems and should be still fit

Neely
07-17-2004, 12:41 PM
Davydenko is for me certainly not one of the players with the physical shape/endurance... somebody like Schüttler would never have problems after just a few matches this week and playing just one round the week before

double break for Cañas, no chance left
Davydenko is toast, he really played well and had some good strokes, lots of winner, but Cañas got very much back and has by far more gas left in his tank

This is the powerhouse Cañas I remember.... My goodness, I don't remember having stood up to cheer so many times during a match in a long time....

Yu see him play once and you will always pull for him...

Neely
07-17-2004, 01:04 PM
concerning physical level and fitness we see two different players on the court today
and it's not like that that Cañas has played no matches this week, he had one more match than Davydenko who had a bye in the 1st round and he also had a long and tough match against Mayer

Neely
07-17-2004, 01:06 PM
one break back for Davydenko
Cañas still leading by one

I'm curious whether Davydenko is able to hold serve now

fco253
07-17-2004, 01:07 PM
Davydenko, four winners and a break, his ball runs a lot kudos to him also...

Neely
07-17-2004, 01:08 PM
and Davydenko falls back again 0-40 on own serve OMG :lol:

Neely
07-17-2004, 01:11 PM
if you followed the beginning of the match you saw that Davydenko still could go more long rallies... but not now anymore, that's why Davydenko changed his game and tries to hit winners almost as soon as possible to shorten the exchanges because he is very exhausted... and his risk is resulting in many errors

Neely
07-17-2004, 01:13 PM
Cañas outguns Davydenko 3-6 6-1 6-2

Stuttgart is a good place for Cañas, his third final there

GOOD WILLY!!!!!!!!!!!

Neely

52 unforced errors of Davydenko to just 19 winners

did you see the scene as Davydenko went to the bench and sat down after a long rally in the middle of the game? you don't have to commentate this anymore

fco253
07-17-2004, 01:20 PM
The local transmission journalist (a well known guy) have just told a story:

He interviewed Moya last year and asked him Which was his best match ever, and Carlos answered:
"You won't believe me, but my best match ever, I lost it...It was my five set loss against Cañas in RG 2002, that day you felt there was no way you could win him one single point and I managed to take two sets out of him"

Surely an exaggeration but nice anyway...

:yeah: he did that 6-3 :D

Neely
07-17-2004, 02:35 PM
the match is getting better now... I hope that Ferrer will be able to pull this set out
he was down an early break, but broke back

3-2* Gaudio

Neely

Gaudio blows
in the 2nd set he was leading 5-2* *0-30 and Ferrer won his service game
then Gaudio blew two match points at *5-3 40-15 on own serve (one double fault) and Ferrer broke back

5-4* Gaudio

will Ferrer still stand a chance in this match or does Gaudio break for the match now?

ytben
07-17-2004, 02:59 PM
Uh oh, will the choking disase come back to bit its favourite victim? C'mon Gaston!

Neely
07-17-2004, 02:59 PM
match point #3 and #4 saved by Ferrer with brave play

Neely
07-17-2004, 03:02 PM
and Ferrer makes it 5-5

Dirk
07-17-2004, 03:03 PM
Come on Gaudio. I think Canas might blow both these guys away. Canas never chokes. He fights to the death.

TheBoiledEgg
07-17-2004, 03:04 PM
Gaston :mad:
come on :fiery:

Neely
07-17-2004, 03:06 PM
and Ferrer breaks again!
OMG :eek:

great play by Ferrer now, what a fighter he is! He also did it against Nadal and had great comebacks!

*6-5 Ferrer now (from 5-2*)
serving for the set!

he scored 5 games in a row now and saved 4 match points

2nd set 7-5 Ferrer

fco253
07-17-2004, 03:09 PM
And here we go again...

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:10 PM
what the fuck
scoreboard had ferrer serving at 0-40
now he won the game
did he win 5 straight pts or was the scoreboard wrong?

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:11 PM
retire gaudio.
that way my bet is canceled

Neely
07-17-2004, 03:12 PM
Ferrer gets his shoulder treated now during the break after the 2nd set

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:13 PM
good, i hope he is hurt
lets go gaudio you prick

Neely
07-17-2004, 03:13 PM
did he win 5 straight pts or was the scoreboard wrong?
scoreboard was wrong, look at my posting above... Ferrer held at love

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:14 PM
is ferrer playing great of a sudden or is gaudio just choking?
how do you see the 3rd set going.
can gaston rebound and win it?

fco253
07-17-2004, 03:17 PM
Both.
from 5-2 to 5-4 was gaudio's job.
from that point, Ferrer took great risks and everything went in.

Dirk
07-17-2004, 03:20 PM
Don't wish injury on anyone. I hope one of these two men win the event, although its hard to not like Canas.

07-17-2004, 03:20 PM
ehmmm my mum said ferrer made a ...fart (?) is that true?

Neely
07-17-2004, 03:22 PM
Gaudio breaks
*2-0 Gaudio

but a break didn't mean much in the 2nd set, did it? :rolls:
let's see what happens

Experimentee
07-17-2004, 03:25 PM
Come on Gaston! Dont choke again!

Neely
07-17-2004, 03:26 PM
obviously the 2nd set loss didn't affect Gaudio much...

Neely
07-17-2004, 03:32 PM
Gaudio serving 40-15
and Ferrer got a point penalty because he sweared something in Spanish...

game Gaudio

4-1* Gaudio

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:32 PM
4-1 gaudio.
if he chokes here, i'm going to be SO MAD

Neely
07-17-2004, 03:33 PM
anybody from Spanish speaking countries here who could understand what Ferrer said?
please translate it if you got it! I would be interested in that :angel:

how's gaston look.

what the HECK are you talking about? :banghead:

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:39 PM
is it still 4-1.
scoreboard seems to be frozen?

Neely
07-17-2004, 03:40 PM
and another break for Gaudio, I think that was it! ;)

fco253
07-17-2004, 03:40 PM
Sorry Neely, I didn't pay attention.

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:41 PM
is ferrer's should injured?

Woooooooooo lets go gaston :banana:

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:43 PM
don't tell me gaudio is about to get broken serving for the match
what is it w/ this choking dog

Dirk
07-17-2004, 03:43 PM
I hope Gaudio can wrap this up tomorrow too. He needs another clay title to go along with his RG.

Experimentee
07-17-2004, 03:44 PM
So whats the score now?

fco253
07-17-2004, 03:44 PM
Gaston can won or lose this amtch, but 3 months before he would have lost 6-1 the 3rd set, now he still has lapses and struggles to close, but before he only had one wind, now he can come back after some chokes beacuse he is more able to recover his fighting spirit...

Having said this, he has just lost his fifth match point on three diff games... :)

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:45 PM
MP for gaston.
try not to blow it

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:46 PM
gaudio blows another MP
my god
does he not want to win?

Neely
07-17-2004, 03:46 PM
great exchanges, Gaudio blows match point #5
5-2* Gaudio

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:47 PM
gaudio gets broken
what the fuck is wrong w/ this mental midget

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:47 PM
neely is gaudio choking?
or ferrer playing good on the match pts?

fco253
07-17-2004, 03:49 PM
Hey Dylan, ease with the insults....you are the one sitting in a desk betting on him, not the other way around, so...

Neely
07-17-2004, 03:49 PM
Ferrer at love
all of a sudden he is attacking and hitting everything again

*5-3 Gaudio

dylan24
07-17-2004, 03:50 PM

I was also kidding, Dylan, sort of...:)

there was a time when Gaston tested my nerves, now I simply expect the worse, enjoy the good and its again fun to see him play. Despite his lapses, he really plays a wonderful tennis.

not a convincing match though... he should have won it 1 hour ago :smash:


Congrats to both players, especially to Ferrer who never gave up and fought back :yeah:
