keep the level up Tommy and take the last 2 sets :bounce:

let's hold that break, Tommy... and win the last set also! :fiery:
Dupuis is very dangerous when his serve is in, he also took a lot of risk and played agressively most of the time. I hope Tommy can continue on this level where he was when he stopped playing today. Don't do it like Nicolas, please! :rolleyes:

I was there at Wimbledon to watch the whole Tommy match!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tommy was playing really badly in the first two sets and just didnt look motivated. Then he raised his game, and was unlucky not to break Dupuis before the tiebreak. The tiebreak was so amazing :worship: :worship: :worship: . Tommy played some amazing tennis on match point down and after played some brilliant passing shots to take the set. He was looking dominant in the 4th and probably would have won comfortably had it not been for the rain. I hope Tommy doesn't have a panic attack like against Marat in Aus 02 and US Open 01. Tommy doesnt like rain breaks at all, I hope he can finish Dupuis off tomorrow.
Dupuis was looking very dangerous, he was hitting loads of returns off Tommy's serve and banging down the aces. He was in the zone. Thankgod Tommy raised his game, but hes not safe yet.
But as being a Haas fan for 6 yrs and actually seeing him live for the first time, I enjoyed the atmosphere and Tommy was great to watch when he started playing well, and actually showed some bottle, unlike the 'catter' FyslanBoppe and GeorgeWHitler make him out to be.

thanks for the report... I could only follow some parts of his match on TV and the way he saved Dupuis' matchpoint was really great play. Haas was at the net and Dupuis tried to hit a shot through him and Tommy could get a racket on this shot and won the point :worship:
I'm glad he was there at the right place.
But Dupuis really looked very comfortable from time to time, especially at the begin of the third as he had three or four love service games and he was almost untouchable on own serve at this time. I'm glad that Tommy got stronger then.
Sure, Dupuis serve is not one of the weakest. This guy won an indoor tournament and is generally well suited to faster surfaces, I think.
Lets hope he keeps it up that we see him in the 2nd round again :yeah:
