he can atleast make the 3rd round, which is good because he will atleast be able to defend his 3rd round performance from last year

Is court 14 a TV court?

Edit: it seems it is, it's listed on the ESPN homepage.

what do you think of his chances beating roddick? roddick was not that impressive at queens

Truc

I would totally fancy his chances in the 3rd round, but my female intuition is a big failure when it comes to Kohli.

German TV is showing his match live. :eek: :faint:

can't find a feed. :mad:

i say he can beat Roddick if his first serve was that of the 2008 AO match. I remember he served 32 aces in that match. Also, last year, I think Kohli gave Federer a tougher match than Roddick. Federer really had to play some amazing stuff against Kohli to pull that match out.

6-3, 3-6, 6-3 right now over starace

Truc

You don't miss much if you can't find a stream. Thanks God he woke up just in time in the last 2 games of the 3rd set, he had been playing some terrible tennis in sets 2 and 3. UE galore, poor returning, no rhythm on his serve... The last 2 games were really good, though.
Starace is just looking frustrated atm, let's hope Philipp will take advantage of it and take a big lead.

The German commentator said that his coach isn't in Wimbledon, he's there with his condition trainer and his gf only. It's fine if they don't want to travel together all the time, but his coach really should be there during the Slams at least.

how did he play in the first set? and how's he doing now?
Is he actually playing good again or is it more that starace is starting to get frsutrated?

Truc
06-21-2010, 07:27 PM
He's on fire now! Gorgeous BH dropshot and BH cross winner to get a double break.
The serve and especially the returns are much, much better now.

I didn't see much of the first set, but he looked OK to me. Then I decided to follow the "last 2 sets" - and he started playing terrible tennis. ^^

bagel! bring on gaba...who's one crazy mofo.

no coach with him again? this situation is becoming strange.

Truc

He gave some news on his homepage, but doesn't mention the coaching situation.
I hadn't realized that the English version isn't really the translation of the German version. In German he explains that it gave him a bit of trouble to play the last match of the day, it had been a very long tennis day and it's hard for him to keep up the tension for the whole day (I guess the earliest he plays, the better for him, it reminds me of that other interview a few months ago when he said that he wakes up early and can't wait to play then - 2nd match of the day tomorrow, it should be better).
But he's happy with his overall performance except in the 2nd set. The idea was to be more aggressive and he was able to put it into practice.

Court 19 tomorrow, no livestream.

gabashvili is playing well lately, i hope philipp will come through. At the very least he needs to make the 3rd round, he doesnt need to be losing any more points right now.

Do you know how many MP have been saved already? I can't follow the match so closely, unfortunately.
He just saved one. :scared:

Pfew, 7-7. :worship:

misty1
06-23-2010, 05:12 PM
atleast 4 in the last 2 service games alone

overall? i have no idea but if i had to guess maybe 6 or 7..all of them by kohli

and unfortunately at this point gabashvili is having an easier time of holding

holy crap break point kohli after gabashvili goes up 30-0! take it please!

misty1
06-23-2010, 05:15 PM
:bounce:kohli breaks!

Now the only other time in the match he broke was way back in the first set for 3-2 but he gave it right back

hopefully he'll serve things out

30-0

30-30

come on close this out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Look at the stats...I really think he should've won this in three. too many miss chances the in 2nd and 3rd. of course, stats don't tell anything.

misty1
06-23-2010, 05:20 PM
i agree with you 1000% his break point conversion has been garbage in this game

2/15?

misty1
06-23-2010, 05:21 PM
my god no...dont do this please!!!

adv. gabashvili

He holds though!!!

gsm kohli

7-6, 5-7, 2-6, 7-6, 9-7

i would have killed someone if he got broken back

HoistDaColors
06-23-2010, 05:21 PM
good job kohli!

time for the duck! please keep up the good serving!

Truc
06-23-2010, 05:26 PM
Awesome fight!
Nice answer to all the RG articles questioning his fighting spirit.

misty1
06-23-2010, 05:47 PM
yep

im so happy he made it because he was definately backed against the ropes there for a while

and now at the very least he's defended what he earned last year:)

although obviously i'd love to see him beat roddick

Truc
06-23-2010, 06:54 PM
You can watch his press conference on the Wimbledon Facebook page, but it's in German.
He wrote a few words on his website right after the match. He's glad people were cheering for him.

great day for germany today isn't it?

3/4 germans in action today avanced and they won their world cup game against ghana.

misty1
06-25-2010, 12:04 AM
Truc you've seen him play how would you rate his chances against Roddick tommorrow?

Truc
06-25-2010, 07:01 AM
Not too good, TBH, I was more confident when I saw the draw. He just couldn't find the court with his returns during one set and a half against Starace. And he seems to say that he played worse in the second round...

Ralf17
06-25-2010, 10:38 AM
But Roddick also doesn´t seem to be as good as last year in Wimbledon so I think maybe Philipp has a chance if he really fights (again).

misty1
06-25-2010, 12:00 PM
well that sucks..i really wanted to see him take out roddick:(

But if he says he's only playing worse than roddick will probably blitz him in 3 and i dont need to see that

On the other hand kohli can come up with some great tennis out of the middle of nowehere so..i dont know

misty1
06-25-2010, 04:43 PM
kohli doing okay so far

5-5 in the first set

serve at only 58% though and roddick is winning more points on return

misty1
06-25-2010, 04:53 PM
fuck my luck

philipp broken, loses firt set 5-7

roddick playing to well and philipp will lose:mad::mad:

i guess we kind of expected this but it still sucks

HoistDaColors
06-25-2010, 05:23 PM
i hate seeing kohlschreiber lose to roddick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HoistDaColors
06-25-2010, 05:49 PM
fuck yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

who's sitting in his box? kuhnen and some girl that doesn't look like his girlfriend.

misty1
06-25-2010, 05:53 PM
takes the second set

5-7, 7-6

15-40 on opening serve in the 3rd

broken to start the 3rd:mad:

misty1
06-25-2010, 06:25 PM
score 5-7, 7-6, 3-6

kohli broken down 0-2 in the 4th and thats probably all it will take to end this:sad:

kohli 0/6 on break points

roddick 4/8

and thats the difference

he had 0-40 after being broken in the 3rd and still didnt break

HoistDaColors
06-25-2010, 06:34 PM

He talked a little about the coaching issue after the Roddick match and said he's looking for a new coach. He also wants to leave the TennisBase where he's been training for so long, he says maybe he had settled a bit too much into a routine, he wants to try something completely different, have a change of scenery and work with an experienced coach.

I haven't read/heard anything about it since then, maybe it's already old news.
