Who cares when Mahut and Isner were playing.

In fact, I had a strong feeling Kolya wanted to watch the end of the epic match himself ;)

Too bad, but it was expected.

Not a terribly surprising result IMO. Good win for Daniel and he has a Hanescu next.

I suspected Kolya might be going out, but the draw was nice enough to hope :sad:

expected to be honest. I saw Brands played very well against Tsonga at the FO. I knew that his game would be very effective on grass and Kolya back from injury + on grass his worst surface... not a big upset.

Mugtastic from Davy. Great first set, slacked off, poor tiebreak, then the 3rd set tiebreak was embarrassing: df on setpoint, then a shocker to give away his next service point too. Basically gave up after that.

great result
Kolya got roasted :haha:

06-23-2010, 08:31 PM
Daniel :yeah:

06-23-2010, 08:31 PM
Kolya blew that 3rd set TB :mad:

Good win, Daniel :yeah:

Two pretty solid wins here at Wimbledon. Good luck against Hanescu.

why you make me look bad? i said this was going to be your best wimbledon yet and you lose now

and why couldnt you take that 3rd set tiebreak? atleast then he could have regrouped after getting breadsticked in the 4th set and started fresh tommorrow

daniel is good player and surface suits him, not too surprising considering kolya's form and results on grass.

06-24-2010, 08:04 AM
