a shot at getting 6 games maybe. 3-0 Tsonga with 2 breaks of serve:sad:

Can Dancevic actually hold his serve once? He's in horrible form right now.

Snowwy

Frank is playing well. He just doesn't have the power.

he's not playing bad at all. Quite good actually, tsonga is just too good for him. All the games have been close, he just can't win enough of the points:shrug:

Lol Tsonga df on bp. The set should have been over by now.

He can play a lot better than those first four games. That was pitiful. We're seeing it now.

Those two points define Frank's career. After the first one, you wonder how is he not in the top 50 and then the second one comes along.

He's a flake. Complete waste of his talent.

Knee injury.

Knee injury.

That's too bad. I was so looking forward to this match.

Come on Frank. You are doing Canada proud today. Sucks that Milos is hurt but Frank is playing his heart out right now.

MaratandMilos
02-12-2012, 10:01 PM
Even with this loss of the set, he should still have confidence that he can at least compete with Tsonga. The outcome isn't in doubt, but maybe he can make it entertaining.

Frank needs to get a lead so the crowd can really get behind him.

Nice forehand winner from Frank

he had a 1-0 lead, but this whole Tsonga haviung to serve too thing made it 1 all:p

Raonic surely would have had a chance, given the way Jo is playing right now...

Great point from Tsonga.

Tsonga in the zone. One set from the match.

I wonder if Dancevic just fades away in the 3rd. The belief may be gone.

Stronga23
02-12-2012, 10:51 PM
Canada should be proud of Frank. He gave absolutely everything he had today.

SapELee
02-12-2012, 11:01 PM
Well it looks like this match is about to be over.

MaratandMilos
02-12-2012, 11:04 PM
Yeah, he faded away. Put up a fight for a while in the middle there, though.

SapELee

It's lovely that Monfils is playing. I hope this is a good match from both. Maybe give Pospisil a bit of confidence regardless the outcome ;)

Snowwy

Very impressed with Vasek's movement.

Monfils diving all over the court, as usual.

SapELee
02-13-2012, 12:01 AM
North American players like to run around their backhand a lot.

Ravel
02-13-2012, 12:02 AM
good touch at the net so far in the match for Vasek. Would have been helpful yesterday :lol:

AllezUSA

Monfils clowning Nadal with that fist pump?

MaratandMilos

Wow...jumps in the air for no reason at all on the smash. Haha.

All part of the show.

I was thinking the same.

MaratandMilos

How many people on tour are more naturally talented than Monfils? It's incredible what he can do with a racket.

Ravel
02-13-2012, 12:09 AM
I like it, makes the dead rubber lively and worth tuning in to

MuzzahLovah

Probably not too many. He reminds me of NBA players.

MaratandMilos
02-13-2012, 12:12 AM
If he ever decided to devote himself fully to winning rather than style and clowning, I wonder what he could do. Of course...it's pointless to ask that question because he's not changing.

Pospisil can't beat Monfils, he's not on that level. Not unless Gael completely clowns his way out of a match.

156mphserve
02-13-2012, 12:18 AM
Monfils shouldn't complain about injuries because they're injuries he can control. If he's gonna be diving, and skidding all over the place then there are consequences of that, and if he isn't willing to quit it then there's no point in complaining about injuries.

I like Monfils but if he ever wants to be relevant it has to stop

He's more than relevant already. He's probably the most exciting player on tour and makes a ton of money (both in regular tour events and exhibitions). I think you mean if he ever wants to be truly elite, he'd have to change.

Pospisil can't beat Monfils, but Monfils is more than capable of beating himself against a steady adversary, especially if he goes full exhibition mode.

MaratandMilos
02-13-2012, 12:39 AM
You don't see the leaping, behind-the-back, threw-the-legs shot very often.

Delpo's forehands are horrible. Can't generate enough power and it's not threatening the opponents.

Yep, feels like a clay court.

From what I can see, nowhere near the high bouncing clay court at Forum Fribourg.
They can put balls away here. Kick serves aren't going so high. The bounce is consistent.
Michael Llodra favors grass courts and he gave Mr. del Potro all he could handle.
I don't think this court will trouble Mr. Federer.
