Good to see Grosjean in the 2nd round. Against Roddick could be a good one.

too bad mardy has to face Rafa next he could use some wins badly. He also cut his hair off haha.

The x-dude looks pretty good with his hair cut. I don't think I've ever seen him with hair that short.

Fish has a great chance to become the next Piggy roaster now.

Fish has a great chance to become the next Piggy roaster now.Not with the way he's been serving lately.

Rogiman wishes but he remembers that Fish lost to Nadal on grass earlier in the year.

Rogiman wishes but he remembers that Fish lost to Nadal on grass earlier in the year.I mean, mardy's the kind of guy who if he gets his serve going he can beat almost anyone. But his serve hasn't been going at all as of late, so it's not really relevant. He's one of those guys who, if he's not serving well, he doesn't play well.

This is true, but the problem is that Mardy hardly ever gets his serve going since he serves big but can't get it inside the service box. He has played 36 matches this year and he has probably served under 50% or just at 50% at least 10 or 12 times this year. I bet he hasn't been at 60% more than once or twice. No way he can beat Nadal serving like that. He did great against Rafa at Queen's when he did get his 1st serve in (won like 90% of the points), but he only served at like 40%. Same thing in 2005. Pretty much the same thing in 2004 although he was a lot better then. Serving at 55% is pretty good for Mardy and serving at 60% is being on fire for him.

Without looking it up at the ATP Site, he's gotta be near the top in terms of 1st serve points won, but his 2nd serve is way downhill and he doesn't make enough first serves to do well consistently.

he did serve at 65% and no DFs against Gabashvili in the first round of qualifying but it has gone downhill since so I guess that was an aberration.

Malisse cut his hair off

I think he had the worst hair on the tour. He looks a lot better for sure.

Good for Henman and Ginepri...anything that makes that awful spanish crowd upset is fine by me.
