Washington Draw :mad: his quarter :mad:

(5) SODERLING, Robin SWE/BYE
YOUZHNY, Mikhail RUS v KENDRICK, Robert USA
(WC) JANOWICZ, Jerzy POL v GICQUEL, Marc FRA
BYE/(12) TROICKI, Viktor SRB
(15) SELA, Dudi ISR/BYE
HEWITT, Lleyton AUS v (WC) YOUNG, Donald USA
LU, Yen-Hsun TPE v (WC) RUSSELL, Michael USA
BYE/(2) DEL POTRO, Juan Martin ARG

So he and Del Potro, both of last year's finalists are in the same quarter :mad: but more importantly... Soderling... :bigcry:

I am not too fond of having Viktor to play Gicquel (the likely winner in R1) in his first match.

Viktor retired at 0-3 :sad:

I followed the LS and I sensed something was very wrong in his one and only service game. :sad:

I just got home. I was there for all 3 games. Very short, not very sweet. He just asked for the trainer, took of a shoe, then that was it. He's so nice, I feel bad for him going out like that.

Again the foot injury, damn! Anyone knows more about it? Started in Hamburg, then he played out the match in Umag (but lost) and now it came up again in Washington. Hope it's just precaution and he's not in danger for the TMSs...

Lee

Even his foot is OK, the draw in Montreal sucks

R1 vs Ferrer

R2 vs Nadal

and I don't plan to look further.

Ugh. That is. :tape:

What do draw gods have against our boy? :sad:

Ad Wim
08-08-2009, 11:56 AM
Don't think it is that bad a draw for a non-seed. Ferrer is winnable, he only had one good run in Hamburg, before and after he was shit.
And I'd rather draw Nadal then any other of the top 8 (except Tsonga) at the moment...

I'm back from Legg Mason. I only saw Viktor once and he was practicing. Well, barely practicing. :lol: He was jogging about 0.2mph around a court and then stretched and then watched others practice. :haha: We left before he actually started hitting... assuming he did. ;)

We were gonna go to his match but he ended up retiring as we were leaving Andy's match and heading over. :sad: No pictures to share. :sad: Sorry Jess.

Petar
08-10-2009, 07:36 AM
Omg what a tough draw in Montreal just when his ranking was on the up too, but on the bright side Ferrer isn't at his best on the hard courts and Rafa has been out for a while so maybe he can pull off a couple upsets... that is if he has recovered from his injury from last week. But I'm gonna keep faith and if he can make a good run here he should break into the top 16 and get seeded for these masters series! :D

Very pissed Viktor in the end with a bagel. *sigh*

Not much to cheer. I was actually encouraged that it got to a TB, but the TB was not close and then after some treatment in between sets and a game he retired, again :sad:

I want him to rest, and selfishly I also want him to play the USO still :sad:

Lee
08-19-2009, 09:10 PM
Disappointed that he has to retire again. Rest up Viktor! :awww:

But feel free to give him a hug for me too ;)

Viktor didn't have breakfast before he went on court today and ate 2 breadsticks and a bagel. At least he finished his match and even managed to win a set. :tape:

Wtf is wrong with him?

His foot is still not right :sad: The off season can't come soon enough I don't think. He needs a prolonged period of rest.

Ad Wim
09-14-2009, 11:40 PM
But why doesn't he take some weeks off then? It could also be a lack of form, because he does finish his matches.
Maybe he is fully fit but still a bit scared too go flat out.
Thought his win against Luczak was nice, but losing quite big to Benneteau is pretty bad.

He does play Davis Cup next week, hope the 2,5 weeks off did him well.

savesthedizzle
09-17-2009, 01:40 PM
Bah we need a new thread for indoors :p

But Viktor is playing Davis Cup as the star. If he loses any matches to Uzbekistan, then :armed: :armed: :rolls:

Lee
09-17-2009, 04:32 PM
Istomin will be the tough one as he went deeper in USO this year than both Viktor and Janko. But Viktor, as #1 from Serbia :D, will play him after doubles so hopefully, no pressure. :p As long as he wins the opening rubber :tape:

If he wins the opener and the doubles, then hopefully Ilija will play Istomin :angel: :lol:

This is sad if we are worrying about ISTOMIN :mad:

I hope this 2 weeks or so of rest have helped the foot, the back, and whatever else is wrong with this boy. :awww:

OK, Istomin had a lucky draw and that's why he's into the 3rd round in USO. No big deal defeating a nobody Evans and totally exhausted Nico! :lol:

Janko and Viktor should have absolutely no problem vs him. :p

Yes Lee, that is definitely it :)

Won the first set 6-4 :D

Viktor is remembering why he is in the top 30 (I hope).

savesthedizzle
09-18-2009, 04:25 PM
And he is again nervous in the beginning of the second set? With the weight of a nation on his shoulders... yes?

15-40 :tape: and I have to go to work :sad:

09-18-2009, 04:51 PM

The match is going to the distance. :rolleyes:

FIVE SETS?

:tape: viktor babe.. I don't know why you play when you are not at 100% like this.. I don't remember you having a ton of points to defend or anything... after DC please please take a break and get healthy!

Ad Wim
09-22-2009, 10:55 AM
Maybe he is 100% and just in terrible form. I guess he won't be that stupid to play 5 sets when he is not fit...

But can someone please change the topic name. And tell those stupid chatters in the other threads to follow Troicki!

I saw him at the USO, and he's not 100% there so :shrug: Maybe a combination of both.

This has never been a serious forum where we dissect tennis all the time, so I don't really expect that to change, nor would I want it to. There is some history behind some of these "stupid chatters" and our stupid chat threads in here. Considering that Viktor does not do very much lately, I don't think it's awful that people have fun and use this forum for other things. I mean when he retires and/or loses in the first round every week that does leave us 6 days to wonder if he will retire or lose in the first round the next week.

08-11-2010, 10:21 PM
in typical fashion he finds it hard to win 2 matches in a row:o

and it was a very good match, very even and then in the third set it went from 30-0 to 30-40 and adv. viktor on kohlschreiber's opening service but kohli held serve and from there on viktor just broke down in emarassing fashion

final score: 4-6, 6-3, 0-6

This draw makes me so angry :( I've watched Viktor at the USO for the past 4 years :( This year I am not going til Wednesday.

I was there last year when he played Luczak first round.

I was there the year before when he played Ball.

And the two years before that when he lost in quallies.

And now the streak is broken :(

jeremda01
08-27-2010, 06:19 AM
i think that Victor will try his hardest for the rest of the New Haven tournament so that he can compensate for the us open (probable) first round lost. (this is probably stupid reasoning by me :P)

i hope i see him play in the Australian Open next year, i saw him this year :)

This guy is a perpetual loser, I can't see him going much further in his career if he can't hold his nerve against a underperforming top player. Seriously 2-1 sets up and 2 chances to go a double break but nets two simple returns, can't hold serve to reach a tiebreak and even throws away another gifted break game in the 3rd set by throwing in double faults on game points, he can have all the talent in the world and he still wont beat any of the top players as he'll never have the heart or nerve to complete a big upset...no matter how far ahead he is in the match

savesthedizzle
09-02-2010, 11:52 AM
The doubles with Berrer was horrible. :rolls: Viktor was furious with the line calls, they put up a decent fight, but Ventura at the net was just too good.
