7-6 7-6 7-6 for the 3rd time in Roland Garros history. Previously in this scoreline Martelli beat Ivanisevic in 1998 (3, 6, 2) and Karlovic beat Patience in 2006 (6, 1, 10)

Canas has turned round into a useless tie-break player - has lost 7 TB's in a row.

Wayne played very well. Canas is not what he was. Plain and simple. Twas a real grinder at almost 4 hours of play. :)

Two 2007 quarterfinalists out in the first two days. :eek:

Very impressive by Odesnik and next round opponent is HT Lee. A good chance for him to advance another round if he continues to play like today.

Odesnik an American that enjoys playing on clay. Far from spectacular, but fights very hard and a good way to impress coach Mantilla.

Got to love the time this match took shortest set lasted 62 minutes, the first one was 75 and the third around 80 minutes.

Far from it. The man knows every single stat that there is to know and ones that aren't invented, which is admirable and if there is a stat inquiry, he is the man to ask.

Thing is that is 98 percent of the time it's just the stats and not an analysis of a match, in this case, he probably didn't see the match and that's cool. Hence the question.

I don't think it was a disrespect post, though perhaps worded a little brusquely.

Some people are just stats wonks, and only really enjoy the stats analysis of a subject rather than the subject itself. I quite like keeping an eye on F1 stats but watching cars go round a track bores me intensely.

I didn't see Odesnik-Canas match because I hadn't even chance to see it like probalby most of the members here - match was playing on an unavailable court No. 6.
I prefer to put some stats instead of analysis because of two reasons:
1) I'm not so fluent in English to write insightful analysis as I would write in my native language
2) There are plenty of members who write analysis and I haven't got an aspiration to be another one of them, I try to focus on stats and I suppose it's beneficial for this forum

BTW, It isn't 98 % but is rather a normal thing that you can't read all my posts on this forum in this entire jungle of various threads :)

Not sure how much of it they showed, but when I woke up this morning, I turned on the tv to see the last few points of this match on TTC. At least someone thought it was interesting enough to lug a camera out to that court, even for a few minutes.

Voo's English is fine, in fact it's much better anyone in here trying to speak Polish as a second language.

Their reaction would be like Odesnik's to all the sounds.

It's funny that Canas is famous as the guy who beat Federer twice and not a guy that can actually play tennis. Seriously. This guy has lost to Querrey, Odesnik, and bunch of nobodies in the past few months. How can you even take this guy seriously now? He even lost to Federer on clay and it's 3-3 vs. Federer now. I think he got his 15 minutes of fame but time to join Guga my friend.

Patrick McEnroe is now faced with the tough task of deciding who will face Spain in September. All of a sudden he has got at least 4 players who have proved to be reliable claycourters during this clay season (Roddick, Blake, Querrey and Odesnik). Tie in September won't be an easy affair, it's 50-50 I would say :) ;)

SheepleBuster
05-26-2008, 07:27 PM
I really feel bad for Patrick though. His team is probably going to lose the first 2 matches against Nadal and Ferrer, and we all know that Blake chokes in live matches, so maybe it's better to go with Odesnik. Obviously Querrey couldn't even mount a small challenge to Federer so I wonder how many games he would win against Nadal if he were to face him. I'd say probably 5 or 6 maybe.

ReturnWinner
05-26-2008, 07:49 PM
not even winning a set and i am sure he had set points in at least a set :tape: but Odesnik deserves credit and btw Cañas said if things keep going this bad he is going to think about retirement.

It would look that way, but I'm sure PMac will go with Roddick and Blake, but Wayne will be on the practice sqaud for sure (good for him, he could use the money). :)

He's using a Babolat now, so my signed POG has just doubled in value! (could be up to $5 now).

Odesnik really surprised me. He basically played out of his mind, and managed to sustain aggressive play for most of the match. He also used his lefty serve on ad points to great effect, saving multiple break points in 3rd set. Canas didn't play badly, but was predictably defensive, staying well behind the baseline, and sometimes gifted Odesnik short balls which the latter smartly dealt with. It was as tight as any match could get, but in the end, the better player won.
