Hey, kinda new here. :)

Indy draw. (http://www.atptennis.com/en/common/TrackIt.asp?file=http://www.atptennis.com/posting/2008/419/MDS.pdf)

If Isner loses, a lot will be possible for Tommy. Certainly a good start into the US hart court season, the competition is not so strong, imo. But I guess everything depends on Tommy himself and his state. I'd say the fact that he plays in Indy obviously in contrast to earlier plans is a good sign. He looked good in Wimby, maybe he's eager and training's gone well so far ...

Urgggg why Isner has to be there, in his draw? :o

Hah what do you think? :D


And Tommy's draw is perfect,forget Isner,now Tommy is OK and 'injury free' like he would say :),so he can easily get to the final..Quarter would be Simon or Mahut and Semis lets say Querrey..I really personally think that he is better than them! And in the final..hm Blake we shall see !
Anyway it will be a joy to watch!

Welcome thefly :wavey:

Thanks for the welcome. :)

Well, when it comes to who's the biggest talent in this draw, I'd say Tommy should win this, but as he himself says, he has to take one step at a time and see from match to match. He's still not there where he was back in early 2007, so right now I see Indy as a test for Tommy to check how he's faring on hard court. But who knows, let's hope he starts strong and builds up some confidence and momentum ...

Btw, were there live streams for Indy last year? I can't remeber.

I think that a healthy Tommy should of course win against Isner. But I am always having the impression that it's more a psychological problem when he's playing these tall guys.

I think he lets himself get annoyed too quickly by these big serve guys; I find that rather weird, since he's always so good against Roddick.

Lugburz
07-12-2008, 03:07 PM
It is weird,but he gets annoyed anyway,that is his biggest flaw...Once he overcome that,he will return to the top 10..hope that will be soon..

Just don't know is it gonna be live...

el tenista
07-12-2008, 03:22 PM
I think that the difference between Isner's and Roddick's serve is that Isner is much taller than Roddick. As a consequence, the ball bounces higher talking about Isner's serve. It's not the speed, it's the height which makes the difference. Same with Karlovic.
@Lugburz8: Only the QF's will be live, there is another sports event which they'll cover live after the Quarters.

Good point.

Concerning this "other" sport event Eurosport's going to cover live ... isn't that beach soccer? Man, tennis has come a long way. ;)

:
Tommy looks weird there, I mean, good, but not like he looks now so it was a bit confusing, TBH, he looks here a bit like Klec (http://pl.tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2w1ut5g&s=4)
About the draw, well, incase he wins his first round match, I hope he feels good enough to beat Isner, he hates to play against him :o
I hope he makes it to the final, and I hope it'll turn out to be more than a wishful thinking, and I hope it'll be against Dudi Sela.


Well, when it comes to who's the biggest talent in this draw, I'd say Tommy should win this, but as he himself says, he has to take one step at a time and see from match to match.

Early 2007 Tommy :hearts: it depends how confident and healthy he is as we all know. last two times he faced Isner were after an injury, but we can see he has a lot of trouble against Karlovic as well :o
And like you said, we'll take it match by match :)

Me too :o

Again.. Me too.. I've never understood that.

@Lugburz8: Only the QF's will be live, there is another sports event which they'll cover live after the Quarters.

Yes it's true, same against Karlovic. I find it weird, since Roddick's baseline game is much better than Isner or Karlovic, so I always thought he should have more troubles against him rather than against just big servers.

Thanks for posting.
Good start with Federer and Davydenko (:() but then Karlovic (And Isner..) it is tough to get the rythem against him when it's all serving, but he has to know to beat those too, its part of the game and he's there long enough to have some clue. Unless he just hates it against them.
I just hope he'll never lose to Karliovic in a slam :o

Yap,probably,first match begins 7pm our time(Serbia and Germany) So let's say that these first two matches will last 4h max...So I expect to see Tommy about 11pm...
So for you Tommy_fan, that would probably be 1h later,right?

Isn't Indy Eastern Time in the USA? This would mean 6 hours time difference, so the first match on CC will begin on 6 p.m. CET and not on 7 p.m...Or am I wrong?

In 2007 the Aussie Open made me ill because I watched Tommy's matches from Round 2 on. And then...yeah, winter, not that much sleep as you can imagine, school...But this didn't matter because Tommy advanced to the Semis :)

Unfortunately you'll have to wait an hour after one download because rapidshare.de saves your IP while downloading. Easy way out: Turn your router off an on, then you'll have a new IP and can download the 10 parts one after another.
At the moment, rapidshare is very slow (I'm downloading with only 5kb/sec :eek:), but normally you can download with up to 600 kb/sec...don't know what's wrong actually...

Unfortunately you'll have to wait an hour after one download because rapidshare.de saves your IP while downloading. Easy way out: Turn your router off an on, then you'll have a new IP and can download the 10 parts one after another.
At the moment, rapidshare is very slow (I'm downloading with only 5kb/sec :eek:), but normally you can download with up to 600 kb/sec...don't know what's wrong actually...

Thank you x10000!
I'll start download it :hearts:

Concerning rapidshare, if you disconnect and reconnect your internet connection after each download you'll get a new IP and don't have to wait ... oh, wait a minute, forget that, I think RS has new rules since a couple of weeks, there's no waiting time anymore. But they limited the speed for free users to about 50-50 kbps.

Appreciate a beer. ;) Good night, see you.

Now go and get Isner. I mean, c'mon, this guy has played a similar amount of ATP level matches this year as Tommy, and has a worse record than him, and Tommy did hardly play. Do it!

Tommy will play tomorrow again, fourth match at 7 p.m. local time.

Btw, post-match interview:

"It's always difficult when you play each other for the first time in a match. We've known each other for quite a long time and we practice together once in a while, but a match is a totally different story... I played a couple good points late in the tie-break to get it going my way."

Btw, wouldn't a seperate thread for the tournament be better? Otherwise this thread here is going to become huuuge ...

On a different note: since Tommy will advance to the quarters easily in two today, who would you prefer as opponent in the next round, Becker or Simon? Simon had some good results and is at his best ranking right now I think, but if I'm not mistaken, he isn't doing so well on hard court, is he?

Definitely! Maybe the threadstarter should rename the thread into "Indianapolis" or something like that, so this thread will be for Indy and for the next tournaments we'll have different threads! Deal?

Think so as well...I'd prefer Simon because I don't think Tommy likes playing against another German guy (what's "Landsmann" in English by the way?) and he lost against Becker in Memphis 2008...Of course you cannot really count the match because now Tommy's form is much better!
Against Simon he has a 2-0 lead in the head-to-head. Tommy won in Halle 2006 in straight sets (64 75) and in Cincinnati 2006 he beat him 63 46 64...

Isner's return game shouldn't be overly dangerous to Tommy if he serves well; let's see if he'll serve stronger than yesterday, especially in the first set.

So far so good.

Ah there goes another chance. He's so close! A break would be worth Isner's weight in gold. ;) But it looks good. Just has to stay focused and mustn't allow to be driven nuts ...

Think so as well. Haas' serve is pretty good, Isner made only 3 points in the first 3 games despite Haas' low 1st serve percentage (53%). Good sign: In his last service game, Isner served only 1st serves (at the moment 1st serve percentage of 81% :eek: ) but Haas had a break point...

If you think of the breakpoints, Tommy could have taken the 1st set 6-0 :eek: But 6-3 is okay, the main point is that he was able to break Isner once! But twice would be better, so come on, an early break as you said and work is done for today :cool:

Sure, Isner is not spitting out aces like crazy today, but that's fine with me.

And Tommy's first serve percentage drops and drops ... but Isner can't do anything with it. Either Tommy serves his seconds so well, or Isner's return game just sucks hard today. The ace on the second serve there right now speaks for the former possibility. ;)

Well, I've seen that often enough, Tommy serving his second very risky and precisely, and very succesfully so, when the first doesn't really want to come. Guess something like that is happening right now...

C'mon 5-3!

5-4 yeah, one more time!
