I'm very happy!
GO TO WTA Dolgopolov!
Nah, not really, the ucranian is a GREAT player, with a top 10 future.

06-24-2010, 03:13 PM
Nice match to watch especially at the end.Both players smiling and cheerful. Great fight by Dolgopolov. Almost saved the the 3rd match point as well.

06-24-2010, 03:14 PM
Compulsory 5 set match for a Frenchman at Wimbledon this year.

Well done Jo, and great effort Dolgo =)

06-24-2010, 03:14 PM
frenchies are winning all close matches
benny, chardy and Jo
good omen for Mahut

06-24-2010, 03:16 PM
My Heart My Heart ... Tsonga almost upset my day. Glad he pulled it out

06-24-2010, 03:17 PM
Dolgo :yeah: :hug: Some amazing shots from him (well, both of them tbf!), Jo's serve holding too well in the end.

06-24-2010, 03:17 PM
Has Tsonga a perfect 5-setter record?

06-24-2010, 03:18 PM
You know... I'm an all-time Tsonga supporter.
But, I also like the spirit of Dolgopolov, I think this player is in a very good shape.
Well, it's true he looks like a woman (Go to WTA and you'll be n° 1, nobody's gonna know!), but maybe in time we'll see him with a very good number in the seeds.

06-24-2010, 03:18 PM
Only 10-8 in the 5th :eek: :haha: Tsonga becoming the king of winning 5 setters after winning the first 2 sets

06-24-2010, 03:21 PM
Has Tsonga a perfect 5-setter record?

Yep: 5-0

06-24-2010, 03:24 PM
Grear effort by Miss Ukraine, likeable guy.

06-24-2010, 03:24 PM
Jo's in love with 5 setters once he tasted them.

06-24-2010, 03:26 PM
dolgo... you couldve won this one :tears:

Entertaining. Dolgo will get there, that's for sure.

06-24-2010, 03:28 PM
dolgo looks like a girl lol

06-24-2010, 03:35 PM
Great scoreline, great for Jo too. This Dolgopolov is good.

06-24-2010, 03:44 PM
To bad Junior lookin forward to Tsonga/Murray 1/4

06-24-2010, 04:07 PM
how many long 5-setters? :lol:

06-24-2010, 04:10 PM
Had this match been on monday it would have been an epic, however after the 70 - 68 it doesnt really sound so epic so more.

06-24-2010, 04:14 PM
Terrific match. Well played. Bright future for Dolgopologoloplopov im sure

06-24-2010, 04:35 PM
I was actually cheering for Dolgopolov a few times in this match.

Happy for Tsonga, but good luck to Dolgo in the future. Great match!

06-24-2010, 04:43 PM
Almost Dolgopolov - likable guy with a lots of promise.

SOOOOO wIsh he would have pulled it out but think I've found another to put on my fav list.

06-24-2010, 04:50 PM
Olek :sad:

06-24-2010, 04:57 PM
gud luck Jo!

06-24-2010, 06:14 PM
Great win for Jo, but what a fight by Dolgopolov, he has a really bright future ahead of him. Sasha :hug:

Dolgo looking like Hewitt in 1999

06-24-2010, 08:01 PM
Tsonga and his 5 set matches :lol: good to see him win though and impressive from Dolgopolov too :yeah:

06-24-2010, 09:21 PM
This was a great match and what a comeback (nearly) by Dolgopolov. Can't help thinking this guy has some future in front of him and what a nice guy to boot aswell, always smiling and really enjoying himself.....................

06-24-2010, 09:45 PM
Yep: 5-0
Hmm.. I thought it was 4-0?! Which one did I forget?
-> Almugro
-> Nole
-> Brands
-> Dolgopolov

This Dolgopolov has a very nice game!!

06-24-2010, 11:34 PM
Dolgopolov is really entertaining to watch.

06-24-2010, 11:41 PM
That was pathetic to see those Dolgopolov's slice bouncing so high and being so easily attacked.

06-25-2010, 12:36 AM
everyone wants a little isner-mahut fame

Another great match at Wimbledon :worship: And people wonder why there should be more grass and less clay tennis :o

I'm sure someone will start a thread about this before the tourney is through, so before the bandwagon gets rolling too fast, this Wimbledon has the potential to be the greatest tennis tournament of all time. Hope we get a 2nd week as good as the 1st one has been :angel:

I'm disappointed that Dolgopolov lost.

Maybe Tsonga will finally make a run at Wimbledon -- he should have years ago. But I don't know, he barely got through here.

06-25-2010, 04:10 AM
This is the first time I've seen Dolgopolov play, and man he moves looks like he's in fast forward! His body looks like it's gonna snap whenever he serves or hits a forehand.:lol: He's got a great serve though, especially for his size.

Tsonga gotta step it up in the next round.

06-25-2010, 04:25 AM
yessss, great win for jo. He has to make the quarters with this draw...

06-25-2010, 04:59 AM
nice win for tsonga!!! :bigclap: the almagro match at aus open where he won 9-7 in 5th set and 10-8 here, he is good in these 5 setters i must say.

06-25-2010, 05:15 AM
Great win Jo and great match :D
I hope he makes a deep run this year!:yeah:

06-25-2010, 06:04 AM
10-8? Psh, that's nothing.
