Dent vs Gambill now...

02-18-2004, 12:32 AM
Dent had two set points at 6-4 but couldn't take them... so Gambill takes the tiebreak 8-6

02-18-2004, 12:46 AM
Now Gambill up 3-2 in second set.
On serve ... each won last serve game at love.

02-18-2004, 12:48 AM
30-30, Dent serving ...

02-18-2004, 12:49 AM
Dent had game point at 40-30, but now it's deuce ...

02-18-2004, 12:50 AM
and then ...
Gambill got to bp, but it's deuce again

02-18-2004, 12:50 AM
BP for Jan-Mike again ...

02-18-2004, 12:52 AM
but no! it's deuce again

02-18-2004, 12:52 AM
ah hes ... 3rd BP is the charm.

Now 4-2 Gambill, up a set & a break.

02-18-2004, 12:53 AM
quickly to 40-0 on Gambill's serve ...

02-18-2004, 12:54 AM
and he holds ... Dent has a pretty long way to come back. Hasn't won a point on J-M's serve in the last 2 games.

02-18-2004, 12:57 AM
Dent: will he hold? will he fold?
would he
could he
win his serve?
can he
will he
hold his nerve?

Stay tuned ... I've had a sudden Dr. Seuss/soap opera thing happen ...

02-18-2004, 12:58 AM
and while I yammer on, Dent holds serve easily, and wins the 1st point on Gambill, who's serving match game

02-18-2004, 12:59 AM
J-M serving 40-15: 2 match points ...

02-18-2004, 12:59 AM
Dent wins one ...

02-18-2004, 01:02 AM
Gambill wins 7-6 6-3

good lord I'm really starting to feel horribly for Taylor. he's going to lose a LOT of points!!!

02-18-2004, 01:04 AM
but not the second. Gambill upsets Dent 7-6 (6), 6-3.
And speaking of Match Game (everyone's favorite alcohol-soaked, post-celebrity game show from the 70's)

host Gene Rayburn: "Taylor Dent is so hard up ... "
audience: how hard up is he?
Gene (leering): "He's so hard up, the Fab 5 told him 'you need to zhuuszh your BLANK"

Let's poll our panelists, and see what they come up with ... anyone?

02-18-2004, 01:43 AM
Taylor is so fucking horrible this year... he can't do shit so far... OMG! :mad:

sure, you may lose against Gambill, but not this way... without fighting spirit, losing his serve a thousands of times... double faulting away set points, double faulting every game, double faulting uncountable times... can't score on 2nd serve... OMG! :eek:

not nice, IMO he's completely out of form so long... I hope he gets better soon, but so far, the first weeks of this year have been awful for him! :o
