Starting his match against Seppi now, don't know what to expect. Guess we'll see on the first serve percentage.

Ad Wim

Wins the first set in the TB, nice.

Pretty tough set, Seppi looked better from the SB. But Tipsa got it to the TB and won, very good.
1st serve percentage is 63% with 8 aces, so that's good.

Ad Wim
02-23-2010, 12:16 PM
Got broken at 3-3. He missed a bp, his first, in the game before. His serve percentage is going down this set, only 43%

0-30 on Seppi's serve after that and then not even a bp. This is not going well...

Ad Wim
02-23-2010, 12:26 PM
But he breaks back when Seppi serves for the set!

Ad Wim
02-23-2010, 12:38 PM
He wins! From 3-5 to 7-5 in the 2nd set. Finally a 1st round ATP-win again :woohoo:

I didn;t like he was so confident before, but it was justified. Now against Murray :o

He chokes. 5-3 up, had sp on Murray's serve but then plays a terrible service game. He was playing very well, but totally screwed it up himself, with a missed smash among others. Murray made 3 return points until then...

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 03:08 PM
But he wins the TB 7-3 with some very good points :yeah:

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 03:17 PM
But he gets broken in the first game 2nd set :sad:

*Ljubica*
02-24-2010, 03:43 PM
Having to listen to my British commentators slavering over Murray is making me :mad: Come on Janko - break back here :rocker:

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 03:46 PM
Loses 2nd set, but not over yet I hope.

Commentators are terrible indeed.

*Ljubica*
02-24-2010, 03:49 PM
And now we have to put up with a shot of a shirtless Murray :rolleyes:

Into fangirl mode - why didn't they show Janko instead? :o

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 04:03 PM
Breaks to 2-0, then saves bp and now 3-0 :o

*Ljubica*
02-24-2010, 04:10 PM
Breaks to 2-0, then saves bp and now 3-0 :o

It's way too early to celebrate :unsure: He needed to make it a double break there. You know how tight Janko gets when serving for a set or match? I don't think one break is enough against a dangerous player like Murray :shrug:

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 04:11 PM
He had no chance at that bp, good serve. But it could have been 4-0 yeah. Now he chokes again...

*Ljubica*
02-24-2010, 04:15 PM
Ajde Janko - focus FFS :banghead: Don't let Murray back in :mad:

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 04:21 PM
What a game :eek:

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 04:22 PM
What a huge hold and what a great match!

*Ljubica*
02-24-2010, 04:25 PM
Yes - some tremendous tennis in this final set :worship: I'm sitting here shouting at the TV :o Some absolutely amazing points in the last service game of Janko's.

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 04:26 PM
He looks exhausted though, will be very tough to finish.

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 04:29 PM
Murray is gifting him the game, that's is nice! 5-2, 1 game...

Nah, hold to 15. Easy ;)

Seriously though, this is another (Federer, Haas etc) potentially career defining win, if he can get over the line. Immense performance thus far, if he can make it through, it's huge, and should give him plenty of confidence going into the masters.

Come on JANKO!!!!

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 04:32 PM
Now is the time Janko, 4 points, please!

Tristanslav
02-24-2010, 04:32 PM
Right. Four serves Janko. It's all you need, four good first serves.....

Tristanslav
02-24-2010, 04:33 PM
hmmm....15-15 to start. 3 left.

Please don't f*** it up Janko :unsure: Almost too scared to watch :o

Tristanslav
02-24-2010, 04:35 PM
oh ffs.

Tristanslav
02-24-2010, 04:35 PM
2 more points Janko, PLEEEEASE!!!!

Tristanslav
02-24-2010, 04:36 PM

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 04:36 PM
Noooo, what a chance...

*Ljubica*
02-24-2010, 04:37 PM
Janko :unsure: Do not lose your serve :banghead:

Tristanslav
02-24-2010, 04:37 PM
oh no.....

Tristanslav
02-24-2010, 04:38 PM
that's it. I'm not watching anymore.

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 04:39 PM
At least he went for it. It's just unlucky Murray comes up with the goods.

*Ljubica*
02-24-2010, 04:40 PM
Janko :sad:

Oh FFS - why don't my commentators STFU :fiery:

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 04:40 PM
I guess it's over now...

*Ljubica*
02-24-2010, 04:44 PM
MP Number 2 :unsure:

Ad Wim
02-24-2010, 04:46 PM
Yeeeeeaaaah! Unbelievable!

And he deserves it so much!

ORDER OF PLAY - THURSDAY, 25 FEBRUARY, 2010

CENTRE COURT start 2:00 pm

J Melzer (AUT) vs [6] M Cilic (CRO)

J Tipsarevic (SRB) vs [7] M Youzhny (RUS)

Ad Wim
02-25-2010, 01:04 PM
He lost against Youzhny. You could see he wasn't fully fit and was late with his footwork. I hope he doesn't take too much out this loss, although he looked very frustrated, and take the confidence from the Murray win.

chowdahead25
02-25-2010, 02:08 PM
Footwork made me want to peel my eyes out

*Ljubica*
02-25-2010, 03:04 PM
Couldn't watch because I was at work, but playing in the Day Session after such a long and stressful match in the Evening Session yesterday, was always going to be hard :shrug: I'm just glad Janko did so well yesterday, and can take positive energy from such a big defeat of a player as good as Murray.
