Hi everyone.Hasnt there been some great matches over the last one and a half weeks.Even the mighty Feds pushed to five sets.Would have liked to see Janko win that match as he played his heart out and deserved to win as much as Roger. A lapse of concentration in the 17th game of that last set was all it took to get Feds home.He was damn fortunate to go into the next round against a much weaker opponent and of course win that match.Here in Australia the matches have been so long some of them finishing 4.45am the next morning.Ive been watching live taping matches and getting updates on my mobile.So many memorable 5 set matches with the score see sawing one way and then in a twinkle of an eye the other way.Great coverage great athletes and the added bonus of suspenseful entertaining matches.Would have liked to see players such as safin and Moya hang about longer but in their matches they were both beaten by players that on the occasion had a greater desire to win. I like a lot of the guys from spain so it was pleasing to see Juan Carlos Ferrero knock out David Nalbandian.enjoyed that match classic play from Ferrero like when he was number one a few years ago.Hope the great matches continue.This viewer wont be missing any of the action.Good luck to who you follow both men and women.Email me at balkisammy@yahoo.com.au with what your favourite matches have been so far.Take care.Linda

Nadal has been kinda sleeping so far, playing at 60% perhaps. Nieminen is mixing up nicely and tries to make sure that Nadal doesn't wake up.

I was waiting for Nadal to finally rip apart Jarkko's second serve, it was about time he realized it was going at 102 kph!!

FedererSlam
01-22-2008, 03:47 AM
Typical Nadal saves 2 SP raises his game now he will serve out the set playing much better and take the next two easy.

He mixed it up nicely but there was no excuse to blow a 30-0 lead at 5-5

how about rafa is one of the masters of big points, he maybe rushed the return on the first sp other than that

rafa picked up his game

SwiSha

jackieglover
01-22-2008, 03:53 AM
Jarkko had it at 15-40 on Rafa's 2nd serve and he shanked it terribly on that shot and has fallen apart since

Come on Jarkko, make him work his money!

rafa picked up his game

From 30-0 up, Jarkko missed 3/4 first serves. I'm not referring to the SP, I'm talking about Jarkko's service game at 5-5. He had no excuse to get broken there.

SwiSha
01-22-2008, 03:55 AM
misha will tear him apart if he plays like that

tennisgal_001
01-22-2008, 03:56 AM
Nieminen saves 2 BP and holds, 1-0

Nadal's going for a bit too much on his forehand all of a sudden

lol jarrkos serve is soft , matter of time that rafa realized that he should be more aggressive on jarkkos serve

Labamba

Jarkko having a little lapse in concentration right now, still able to hold...

01-22-2008, 04:06 AM
damn, too careless with the smashes there :(

tennisgal_001
01-22-2008, 04:09 AM
Does it hurt the player's ego when he lets the ball bounce before hitting a smash? They always seem to do that and plenty of times they miss on important points when the sun is in their eyes!

Smasher
01-22-2008, 04:11 AM
Too many easy errors now... :(

Nadal up a double a break, *4-1

Labamba

atleast Jarkko gets one break in this match :)

his returning hasn't been up to the normal standard today

Labamba
01-22-2008, 04:31 AM
winners:

Nieminen 22
Nadal 22

unforced errors:

Nieminen 16
Nadal 17

It's a pretty even match so far, shame Jakke couldn't take his chances in the first set...

TankingTheSet
01-22-2008, 04:38 AM
Jarkko looks extremely uncomfortable at the net, lost almost all points there.

Edit: He did win some points at the net but he has missed a lot of smashes and other chances to close out the point.

Labamba
01-22-2008, 04:39 AM
poor game there from Jarkko :sad:

back to the army now, a week in the forrest will help get over this :lol:

Linque
01-22-2008, 04:40 AM
One set was how long Nieminen was able to play his perfect game. He isn't able to keep that up longer, now we're seeing the UEs starting to pile up a bit.

Good match from Jarkko regardless, he just hasn't got what it takes to take down Nadal unfortunately. Well maybe, just maybe if he had taken the first set things could be different but I kind of doubt that.

tennisgal_001
01-22-2008, 04:42 AM
Great forehand pass

Labamba
01-22-2008, 04:45 AM
Jarkko looks extremely uncomfortable at the net, lost almost all points there.

It's not that easy to handle Rafa's topspin passing shots

winning 58% is not the same as losing almost all points :p

Sharapova seems too strong for Henin today
though no surprise as it reflects the tournament so far with Henin not being as strong as expected

if Masha keeps rolling, Youzhny - Tsonga might start at half past

Misha should put his foot down on the accel to win this. Needs to be hitting full-powered shots, instead of what he hits now, being too careful.

Misha you need some good, crispy shots.

Stats are same in third set. But the thing is, Misha can still step up about two notches. I hope he does that. Otherwise Tsonga will win.

misha, get a break point. Smash him

He forces a tiebreak anything could happen. Tsonga could wear down.

both have 23 winners from rallies and youzhny has less unforced errors tsonga is dominating on serve!!

they said Tsonga's fitness is not the greatest and could be tested if he loses this set

he played 4 sets agains Murray & Gasquet

Tsonga defeated two pushers - Murray and Gasquet in 4. I don't think only fitness will make him lose.

Unfortunately, true.

he needs to play full-scale power tennis instead.
