Hi froggy....
Yeah, it was quite a ugly match for zhenya,having problem in every single of his service games....

Sigh....
I'm sure the crowd was very disappointed and sad ....

Layla
10-05-2002, 02:45 PM
Poor Zhenya! :sad: Now the all-Russian final won't happen. I was looking forward to that. :(

But congrats to Sjeng! :D What a great victory for him. He has a real chance of winning this tourney now. I can't be too sad cause he's one of my faves. ;)

Paul-Henri just opened the match. He is the first to serve.

safin match is started?

Layla
10-05-2002, 03:00 PM
Yes, Mathieu leads 3-0 and Safin is struggling with his second service game. It's deuce.

Bubble
10-05-2002, 03:00 PM
Yeah, Marat is 0-3 down.... :(

Layla
10-05-2002, 03:03 PM
Safin manages to hold. 3-1. Paul-Henri is playing incredibly, full of confidence. Safin's performance is not bad either if a little inconsistent. It feels like sometimes he's underestimating his opponent. Paul-Henri's returns are just out of this world! :eek:

Layla
10-05-2002, 03:19 PM
Marat managed to get the break back. :) It's now 4-3 for Mathieu.

Mathieu saved 3 break points in the last game and now leads 6-5. :( Hold your serve Marat, then play a phenomenal tie-break!

Damn You Sjeng Schalken... How dare you ended Zhenya's winning streak!!!!

Marat missed BP's again :mad:

Layla
10-05-2002, 04:12 PM
OMG! Mathieu managed to hold from 0-40 down. :eek: Marat is just not converting his break-points. I think Mathieu managed to save 13 out of 14, but I could be wrong.

lin
10-05-2002, 04:13 PM
6-7 2-5* :sad:

Layla
10-05-2002, 04:14 PM
DAMN!!! :fiery: He got broken again. :mad:

Mathieu now leads 5-2. :sad:

lin
10-05-2002, 04:15 PM
yep,Marat had 14 BP's, but only break once :mad:

Layla
10-05-2002, 04:18 PM
0-40 again! If he manages to lose those BP's I'm gonna break his racket for him. :mad:

Layla
10-05-2002, 04:19 PM
Nevermind, he only needed one this time. :angel: He broke back. 5-3. :)

Marat lost 6-7 4-6 :sad: :sad:

but another good win for Paulo,take the title tomorrow :)

Layla
10-05-2002, 04:30 PM
Marat lost! :sad: That was a terrible final game. And the fucking idiot in the crowd who was screaming during Paul-Henri's serves deserves to be bound and gagged then put in the centre of the court where everyone can throw eggs at him. :fiery: But there was some justice since she or he only managed to rattle Safin, not Mathieu.

What a disappointing day for the Russians! :(

KFS
10-05-2002, 04:30 PM
You gotta be joking, mate!!! :fiery:

Marat must be feeling upset for Zhenya's loss tonite and feeling the pressure to make at least one Russian into the final!!??

What a bad nite for me!! :mad:

Zhenya.... :(
Marat.... :(

Damn it! Damn it! Damn it! :fiery: :fiery: :fiery:

Marat destucted himself again. The story continues. :mad: :sad: :(

Logically, he should have won it. But logic and Marat, unfortunately, do not go together.

All creadit to PHM. He was nowhere near Marat's play and still won the match because he played the important points better.

I lost any interest in the final, more time away from TV on Sunday :D
