If jarkoo could take leyton to 5 sets, I draw positive things for Roge for the SF. Because jarkoo is not Roge, and Roge also save lot of energy by playing short match tonight.
Allez Roge!

Roger is the only player left who won in straights, the other three had to fight hard 5 setters :)

Come on Roger, just let your racket do the speech :banana:

Would some kind person plse give Roger an extra cheer for me when he plays Hewitt tomorrow (and for the final on Sunday which I hope will be against Andre) as due to bad planning on my part, I'm just about to set off for a weekend away and won't be able to see/hear any of these matches. But look forward to reading all your comments on the matches when I come back v late Sunday night - and learning that Roger is USO champion! Go Roger!!!

:lol: you can say so. I watched the match last night (yes in Europe, it was the evening when Lleyton played.). When one was playing great, the other one was playing bad. (Nieminen was really wonderful in the 1st set, while Lleyton was making errors and wasn't sharp at all...)

hmm that's interesting. the commentators have been saying for the last few days that roger would play first because they would want to put the all american match later in the day in the better ratings slot. maybe the uso schedulers want to give andre the little bit of extra time to rest before the final. :shrug:

That's what I read in an article. They want to let the first finalist (an American) rest longer than the 2nd finalist.

That's only intelligent, but if anyone remembers AA's last final v. Pete, when he was much younger & healthier, a few hrs. won't make much difference. Goddamn the USO for not having men's semis on Fri. evening. It so compromises the quality of the final.

PaulieM
09-09-2005, 10:23 PM
i guess any country would do the same, though unless roger and lleyton play an increadibly long match it would hardly make a difference. the good thing about this schedule is it means i'll actually get to watch roger. i get off work at 3 tomorrow so that's good thank goodness i decided not to work untill 8. :yippee:

I have a lot of confidence for Roge for the match with leyton. I sometimes am worried with other matches, but now I feel calm and confident that Roge will play very well and win this. I don't want him to humilate leyton, though. Just play great and win and be a great champion. I don't think I expect any bagel score this year, but don't need. I hope it is a great match, and we get to see some great magic fly off Roge's racket. Allez!

Red Alert Red Alert Red Alert for All Americans

Just read over in GM area, that they switched matches in part so that if AA's match was long, they'd stay w/in their scheduled 6 hour window, by Not Broadcasting the rest of Roger's match; if they broadcast AA's last they couldn't cut him off. Anyone know anything about this, or what we can do to insure this doesn't happen. Supposedly, last yr. final got a very low rating - lowest since Rafter-Rusedski.

I don't think he is. Plus he's better than anyone at adjusting if he has to and stepping it up when he needs to. Lleyton didn't look that great in his QF match....in fact I don't think he's looked great all tournament. I'm hoping nerves/self doubt get the better of him.

I hope that he play better. Heck, Both of them need to play way better. The crowd doesn't give them a lots of energy.

nobama
09-10-2005, 08:22 PM
If Roger doesn't start getting some first serves in I might have to quit watching. This reminds me of when they played at Wimbledon....I think Roger's 1st serve percentage in the first set was like 27%.

nobama
09-10-2005, 08:23 PM
1-1 Lleyton's waking up.No, I think Roger's serving like crap. At some point that's bound to work in Lleyton's favor. Hopefully he can pick up his serve now.

yeah that was ugly. i hope he finds his serve soon, lleyton is starting to play a little bit better and has even found his c'mon. if roger keeps serving like this, this match will be longer than it needs to be.

amazing from rogi. where the hell was that stuff earlier?Second set blues or something. Every player has times when they're just off their game. It certainly was that way for Roger in the second set, just like it was for Kim Clijsters in the first set against Venus. And when she played Sharapova the first set-and-a-half both players played like crap.

lleyt will not crack under pressure nor will he go away... he feels rogi was lucky to win that 2nd set probably [!] and will try to take this set -- he is prepared to go the distance... to 5 sets and if that happens, rogi will be hardpressed to win... he knows rogi's under pressure

does rogi look passive and a little slow or sth?

time to do the offensive! FOCUS, Roger! Lleyton won't go away.

TenHound
09-10-2005, 10:05 PM
He looks passive & sluggish, if not outright tired. He let Hewitt dictate this set too much rather than putting him away immediately in the style of the tiebreak. If AA's serving well tom. & moving him all over the court, it'll be tough tomorrow, if he makes it. He has missed far too many shots that are routine for him. Just hope this is a good wake up call for him. Arguably, he needs it.

what saddens me is that last yr. he played regularly as well as he played the TB. Since foot problem, it's so rare. How many up the line bh winners has he had today - 1...When the first serve starts breaking down, the confidence goes down, then the backhand...
