In England we have a saying that "a bad workman always blames his tools" :rolleyes: so I guess they find it easier to blame their racquet than admit they've made a mistake.

Depends on the crowd. I was in Indian Wells, Santiago Giraldo was down 15-40 and he decided to sit down and called for trainer while obviously, he was not injuried. Since the court was very far away, it took forever for the trainer to come. Trainer came and nothing needed to do. The crowd might be too stunned by this and they were very quiet. :tape:

From JJ's interview:

Q. United States and Serbiaare obviously two very different countries, but say if Obama came to a tennis tournament, people would freak out and so forth. What was it like having the President of Serbia here yesterday and what kind of guy is he? Good guy? Not so good? What's the deal?

JELENA JANKOVIC: What kind of question is that?

It was really a pleasure to have the president come out yesterday and to ‑‑ we had lunch, and we had a meeting with all the Serbian players. For us it's really an honor to have him come here and support us.

No matter what we are doing, he's supporting us. When we make,you know, good results or we win tournaments, he always congratulates us and always gives us words of support.

We are a small country. Before we were not good in tennis. We did not have a tradition in tennis, but now we became really a force in tennis, and we are all very proud of that, and we are very young, as well. So we have many years to play, and hopefully we will make even bigger success in the future.

Q. Do you think he follows tennis?

JELENA JANKOVIC: He does follow tennis.

Q. Did he give you any tips or...

JELENA JANKOVIC: He gave us some tips yesterday. I actually didn't know that. Did you know if you eat fruit after the meal you get fat?

Q. No.

JELENA JANKOVIC: (Laughter.) Really. But not in the morning. If you eat it late in the afternoon or in the evening, it turns into fat. That's sugar.

This is something I heard for the first time.

Q. But anything about the game itself? Anything about the game of tennis itself, aside from conditioning?

JELENA JANKOVIC: No, no. He's not a tennis -- how do you say?

Q. Aficionado?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah, he's not a tennis expert. He's the president. He has his job. He's a big fan. He follows us and he likes to watch us play.

...

Q. When is the last time you played great? Were you close today to playing great?

JELENA JANKOVIC: When was the last time I played great? You know, I could say that was maybe last year at the end of the year. That was when I played great tennis. Now I'm getting better and better, so I'm still not where I want to be, but my tennis is going up. So that is a positive thing.

Q. As long as you don't eat too much fruit and put all the weight back on?

JELENA JANKOVIC: No, no, no. You misunderstood. You should eat fruit before, not after. In the morning, it's good to eat fruit. But when you eat it late in the afternoon, after the meal, it kind of ‑‑ I don't know. It's tough to digest. It turns into sugar. Maybe it's right; maybe it's not. That was the first time I have heard something like that.

So Novak said, you know, he's going to eat more and more fruit. He's trying to gain weight. He has that kind of problem.

Q. What did Ana say?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Ana was not there. She was, I think, playing her match, or Iguess she was on schedule to play, so she was ‑‑ she didn't have a chanceto be there.



:rolls: :haha:

If she scares you, just ignore her. :lol:

Linda doesn't hate all players, she is a big Nadal fan. I think she likes Murray too. And she strongly dislikes Nole. ;) Correct me if I'm wrong here, Linda. :p

There are many posters who are not very friendly. Mainly in GM (general message forum) and NT (non-tennis forum). We try to make Nole's forum here as friendly as possible. Usually, players forums are more friendly places.

Too lazy to read back but I see Nole didn't get to finish :( This means he will have to play two days in a row right? but at least he has two sets in the bag so it won't be too tough on him tomorrow...assuming he goes out there and takes the third. No funny stuff Nole :armed:

Great to see that Nole has 2 sets in the bag already.

And yes, I have to agree with all the comments on the Portugese girl. WTF? My ears were bleeding.

Elle - is the Fox stream the one you're watching on TV?

Sorry just saw this!

I'm watching mine through FoxSports on my TV. Not sure if it's exactly the same as Fox stream? :shrug:
