not so much anymore. Fabrice is getting some lucky net cords/outplaying blake and is james is being generous with the UEs.

Go Fabrice

Rumour

Can't believe I went with Llodra instead of Almagro in my suicide pool :banghead: Having to listen to that annoying J-Block now is not helping to improve my mood :rolleyes:

Marek.
08-31-2007, 02:03 AM
I hope this goes the distance.

Rumour
08-31-2007, 02:03 AM
Santoro evens the match at 4-6 6-3 with a great point at net :D

Edit: Well, a kind of weird one as Blake attempted a semi-FH-smash of sorts and the Frenchman unexpectedly got it back and James couldn't put away the volley...

rmb6687
08-31-2007, 02:06 AM
wow, james. haha. I'm so happy Fabrice is making a match out of this and i hope he wins

Rumour
08-31-2007, 02:08 AM
Blake holds at love to start the third but Santoro had a great get on the second point from almost off the court...

Alistair
08-31-2007, 02:12 AM
Jimmy breaks. Consolidate it now.

Rumour
08-31-2007, 02:29 AM
Santoro finally gets on the board in the third set at 1-5, Blake serving for the set.

I'm heading out for a bit and will probably return to find this match over anyway...

rmb6687
08-31-2007, 02:31 AM
James choked and didn't close out the set.

Rumour...I love your avy! He's my favorite actor. :)

Marek.

Santoro breaks to open the fourth.

Fifth set here we come!

yeah, probs. It looks like Fabrice is getting tired. unfortunately.

hahah now it looks like i spoke too soon. damn this match is all over the place.

Marek.

They're starting to over do it with the breaks now. Come on guys, this isn't the WTA.

Halba
08-31-2007, 02:57 AM
man this is weird but blake has the power

Crap - come on James. Hold here.

Marek.
08-31-2007, 03:14 AM
Can Santoro hold his serve?

Halba
08-31-2007, 03:15 AM
haha another break. blake serving at 30% in this set

Halba
08-31-2007, 03:15 AM
Can Santoro hold his serve?

would be good if he could but i doubt it

Marek.
08-31-2007, 03:18 AM
Fifth set!!!

The only bad part of this match is that there have been 14 breaks. Other than that it has been fantastic.

rmb6687
08-31-2007, 03:19 AM
We have a fifth set! I'm sure James is pissing himself.

Marek.
08-31-2007, 03:21 AM
I actually think Blake's going to win this.

Rumour
08-31-2007, 03:22 AM
This is freakin' hilarious :rolls:

When I was getting to ready to leave for my errand Blake was getting broken while serving for the third set but rebroke as I was out the door. I return to see him broken yet again but Santoro this time holding to even the match and force a fifth set, which we all know is where James really shines :devil:

Rumour
08-31-2007, 03:37 AM
This is Blake's destiny to win this match. :lol:
I admit if he's ever going to win a 5-set match, this is the time and place to do it. Surely another aging veteran can't come from behind to beat him again...








Or can he?

Now this is what I call a competitive, entertaining, exciting match. A classic in the making here. Two intense players matching one another shot for shot. Lots of tension and an enthusiastic crowd eating it up. None of the Federer-plays-great-while-opponent-plays-sucky kind of stuff. ;) :p

why do u need to bring fed in to everything??....No point talking to u in the first place.....AO 07 SF match is wat the media called classic performance....obviously u wouldn't like it...

Whoah that point :eek:

Marek.
08-31-2007, 03:41 AM
Capedeville played probably as well as he could in that match which is why it was so fun to watch. Santoro and Fed played here in 2005 and it was an excellent match with the score being 7-5 7-5 7-6.

Billabong
08-31-2007, 03:41 AM
As if the outcome in that match was ever in doubt. :lol: Unlike this match where it could go either way.

yah, that was because Federer was simply superior, but his opponent certainly wasn't "sucky" as you said in your post.. He really played well. And don't forget the Fed-Santoro in 2005 which was an absolute beauty!

Marek.
08-31-2007, 03:42 AM
Blake is starting to rush it now.

The quality of play in a tennis match doesn't necessarily depend on the overall level of competitiveness, although that certainly helps.

Billabong

Exactly. Tonight's match is definitely more exciting, but yesterday's match was good as well, and Federer definitely has his share of exciting matches as well!

Play resumes and the point ends with a Blake forehand going long, Santoro 30-15.

Rumour
08-31-2007, 03:52 AM
Santoro wins next point but hobbling around like an old man - doesn't keep him from winning the game when Blake nets a volley attempt, 3-3 now.

Marek.
08-31-2007, 03:53 AM

Fabrice starts off with an unreturnable first serve, another good one for 30-0. Second serve returned well by Blake but just misses the next shot, 40-0. Rally ends with Blake netting the backhand, 4-4.
