Could Mackin BE anymore nervous?

would have been a better title. But yeah, I'd say he's bricking it...

EDIT: It's not a 'your english is crap' comment, I just thought a Friends vibe was needed.

pretty pathetic to be dissing the poor guy

16 points for the first set isn't that pathetic. unfortunately it's not reflected in the 6-0 scoreline.

Frederick16
09-23-2005, 12:47 PM
we are not dissing him! i said good things about his play and a challenger player is also able to get games of him!

How many straight games Federer is gonna win before Mackin wins his first ??

When Federer has ANY I mean the most little class possible he gives Mackin one game and doesnt want to be remember as someone who was so great to give triple bagel to Mackin

hello we talk about pro players here... he have to deserve it. but now a new chance!

Actually "anymore" isn't even a word, so I disagree with that suggestion ;)

Having watched the first set and a half, I don't think Mackin was particularly nervous, he just got completely outplayed.

6-0 ...I agree with you Mackin plays very decent

Come on.... Roge has handed out bagels to top players. And here is Mackin who never play an ATP match before. 6-0 nothing to be ashamed of. He joins some very good victims of Roge
(But it is embarrassing to watch)

Federer isn't a specialist making bagels . Before this match he had only made one bagel this season, and he was out of top 40 bagel-makers.

Yes but taking very good players to a breadstick (including agassi). Doesn't that sound that he would take a not-good-player who is not-nearly-pro to a bagel easily?

No there was no doubt of the eventual result, but it was not definitely not clear that it would be the first 3 matches itself that Schweiz will win and finish it off (in fact it is still not clear). I am sure many think that andi will win his match against stani, keeping GB hope alive

Roddick beat C.Rochus 6-1 6-2 6-3 on clay :eek:
Well, first of all...Christophe is not as talented as his brother IMO
Secondly, clay is not the favorite surface of the Americans but it's not the best surface of our Belgians either.

Roddick played well - Christophe said that he didn't have an answer against Andy's power - but Rochus played sloppy at the same time (but that could be due to the fact that he looked intimidated during the entire match)

What has he done?
He beat Blake 6-4, 7-5, 6-1 and if you saw the match and how he played and fought then you'll agree with me ;)

And I don't agree when people say that Chris isn't really that talented. He's very talented, he's got a great touch and probably the best drop in the game and some great volleys too. BUT he lacks confidence right now, he's in a bad period and he said himself that he didn't deserve to play sunday cuz his confidence is on a low and his best isn't that great right now.

But I can assure you, when confidence is there, he's almost as amazing as Ollie :angel:

Almost perhaps but Ollie is mentally much stronger, isn't he?

I agree about Christophe's touch, tough. Usually, he's much better at drop shots and hiding certain shots but he lacked the confidence to do so today.
The commentator on La Deux was almost begging Ollie to show his delicate touch more. I guess it didn't happen :sad:

Nice wins by Nikolay and Karol made my day. :)

Davydenko proved a lot in this match as he did in the quarters against France, pulling through for Russia again despite the wrist problems. What a champ all of a sudden! And I was pleased that Mikhail at least got 2 sets from the DC Beast Ljubicic, although it only ended as yet another 5th set disappointment... he's 0-3 in 5-setters this year. :rolleyes: :fiery: Winning that final set would have been huge for Russia, obviously, and I'd still consider Croatia the heavy favorites to take the tie.

Ferrero :confused: What the fuck happened that he only won 5 games in the last 3 sets?! What's even more inexplicable is that he was chosen to play at all; Ferrer was clearly the better choice on clay (and on any surface but indoors) at the moment. I don't think the Spanish captain will make the same mistake on Sunday. David's going in.

Hasi's choke from 2 sets up was even worse. :rolleyes: :p
