you use deco turf?

AsgerHO
11-06-2011, 12:19 AM
Most of the mens matches are played in the LTA Academy centre, where the courts are slightly more or less the same as in the Dan Maskell centre. They may be a slightly bit quicker in the LTA, but not much - in general slow courts

He has not started yet. All menīs matches will be on livescore on ATP and on the LTA website. The reason why they are not on is because the womenīs ITF matches are delaying the schedule.

The womenīs matches are not currently on livescore but they should be as soon as we solve the technical difficulties

Hopefully he wins the title, and hopefully Kamke loses today and does not regain a top 100 spot.

Kamke has seemed really motivated lately. Obviously, remaining in the top 100 means a lot to the bastard. He's ruining everything, just like Kukushkin did. Both of them make me sick.

Courts are not fast at all. They are actually very slow, which is why Cipolla has managed to stay with the hard hitters this week. Had the courts been faster, Bedene would have trashed Cipolla today - but I have never seen a man work as hard as Cipolla, itīs incredible

If anyone is interested I have made quite a few videos from the tournament?

so cipolla is a lock tommorow asger?

I hope heīll win, but I think itīs gonna be extremely tough for him. Heīs tired, has been with the physio the last three days after matches, and has had to work a lot harder than Kamke to get to the final.

Kamke seems motivated, but he can break down as well. I think itīs pretty tough to call that one tomorrow. I wasnīt sure Cipolla would make it today due to fatigue, but he proved me wrong.

Brain says Kamke, heart says Cipolla

Hahaha, then the report I read was wrong then :lol:

But it makes sense, these sorts of slower courts are definitely more advantageous for Cipolla. Hard to hit through him and he can use his craft to earn himself wins.

Videos from the event sound awesome, I'm sure several of us would totally enjoy and thank you if we saw them :lol:

good job tobias, good to see him fighting to keep his top 100 position

even if you arent a fan of players like tobias(i am) and kukushkin(im not)you have to really respect just how much being in the top 100 means to them. They fell out of the top 100 and immediately responded and got back inside. The fact that they didnt just fall off into oblivion is good
