This is a great idea, SweTennis! :worship:
Yea, we're all a bit nervous tonight. I've noticed too.
5-5. Man, the last two matches have gone to 5-5 in the first set. I'm praying this will be like the blue shirt one against Nole. I've got no more fingernails to bite off! :eek:

Those we're great. Both players are playing like their lives depended on this match. Fed losing has opened this one up. Great match!!! :)

Third first set tiebreaker in the past 3 matches. This is killing me! Allez Robin!!!

Great hold of service!! Cmon Robin!!!! 3-4 still on serve!

It's coming and going, SweTennis. I'm connecting via Wireless at the moment, so I'll see a rally, it will freeze, and I'll be not sure what happened for a moment or two and then it will cut ahead to the score. Very frustrating. I'm moving my external USB Wireless adapter all over the place trying to get the best signal. But I'm seeing enough and it's better now, thanks!

3-2, Robin, on serve in the third. :clap2: Break this Pony, now Robin!!

Match over - and I am sad for Robin. Bur really can't be too sad. It's been a fantastic week for him - loads of extra points and money. He should be proud of himself. Absolutely nothing to be ashamed of.

Now go home and rest and have a great off-season Robin. See you in 2010.

Oh well. Robin had his chances, but I'm a person who almost always sees the glass half full. Let's not forget he was a sub for this tournament, and all in all he had a great couple of days, with back to back wins over the 2# and 3# of the world.

It's been awesome to follow Robin this year, and I look forward to the next season. :wavey:

First, for the first match leading into 2010. :)

I'm posting this everywhere so there is NO confusion. The matches have started (not Robin's yet though) and the streams are working! :D

From Sport finally is listing a link to a live stream for the

ATP Abu Dhabi World Challenge (http://www.fromsport.com/video-143861.html)

http://www.fromsport.com/c-4.html (three different match streams now listed off this site in different languages. I thought it was going to be hard to find a link a half hour before the first match started. Obviously not.)

This has always been a reliable stream from my experience. :D

Second link if problems with the first one:

http://www.rajangan.net/ shows the Capitala World Tennis Championship (http://www.rajangan.net/template_live.php?ida=5581)

Third link (and might be the best one as it is simple):

Live Score Hunter (http://www.livescorehunter.com/streams/tennis/1/001.php)

He was going up for his serve. :lol: It is hard to capture his face because he looks around quite a bit and down as though he means business. He just broke Wawa with a fantastic return of serve down the line. He looks great so far. 4-1 lead in the first set:

Btw: I like the name, but maybe we should have "Live scoring" in the title? I mean so we know which thread is for that purpose.

Nolby
12-31-2009, 02:21 PM
Crap! Wawrinka just broke his serve. Stan is hitting balls really short and Robin is having problems rushing to the net and putting a combo of volleys away.

5-2

Oh yea, "live scoring" should be put back in the title, SweTennis. :lol:

We can make a new Tournament thread if we think enough people will post in it. That has always been the issue before, but he is definitely getting a larger fan base. It may come to a point where that makes sense.

I was looking at changing my avi and noticed Robin is 1 of 10 players you can choose as an automatic avi now. Unreal, eh?

Yeah, I saw that on Wikipedia just after I'd set the title, but whatever:P. Maybe it would be "Area of Oil" instead of "Land", even if "Capital" isn't right then. But it's only three days so I'll change soon again.;)

People are picky, picky. :lol: That's fine, SweTennis, but maybe it would be good to put "Live Scoring" back in the title like before.

2-2 in the second set. And no breaks so far!! :eek::eek::eek: :lol:

He let Wawa back in. Now 6-5 Wawrinka, second set, on serve.

Kom igen, Robin!

:yippee:

7-6(4), 7-6(2)

I'm glad he wasn't playing Fedex today. His serve was broken 4 times, every time when he was serving for the set. Yuch!

I hope Fed comes out this rusty tomorrow. 1 Swiss down, 1 to go!

Hope to see it in highlites.

Totally dislike Robin's game. Seems like he is out of form - I believe his first serve decided to take day-off. No accuracy, no concentration...
Come on Robin! Wake up! Vacation is over. I know it is totally unfair and you want some more - but tomorrow you will face RF, so - wake up!

The point to make it 5-2 was fantastic! It froze on me, so I never saw him go to 6-2. But he took the match when Wawrinka hit an unforced error into the net after Robin returned his serve. Stan fans saw him play a rollercoaster match too. He looked awesome at times, and pretty dismal at other points. I thought Robin was smoking when he started the match...he looked great. He did enough to win in the second set. But he has to work on serving out sets, that is for sure. :lol:

I agree, Dana. It was a revolting display at times, although when he started his meltdown in the first set, Stan started to hit some wicked backhands too. The most discouraging part is that when he lost his serve, 3 times it was to win to win the set, and once it was at 5-5 in the first set. The most encouraging thing though, is that when he lost it, he came right back and broke Wawa in the first set to get to the tiebreak, and then held his nerve in the second set and played both tiebreaks with real nerve. He went up early both times too, so that was encouraging. Yea, the serve did not look great today. He got his first ace in his first service game in the second set. I think he only had a handful for the match.

I watched Kolya and Ferru too, and they were up and down too and it wasn't always pretty. I hope Fed shows up like that tomorrow and Robin shows the form he had in the WTFs, where he was fantastic, even in losing the last match to Del Pony.

Why is it that Cilic can seem to find some amazing gears in some matches, such as against Murray at the U.S. Open and Rafa in Beijing, and completely mow down top ranked opponents as though he were in a different league? But that guy only comes out to play once in awhile. I've seen him play tennis that was almost unplayable for his opponent, and yet in the next match, all the magic will be gone.

Etern

Yes, he's got to stop thinking and talking about it so much... I could almost sense he just wasn't in the mindset to take advantage when he got that set point in the first set. He plays really well against Roger, but on important points he will have ridiculous mis-hits that look as though he just has no belief. He has to stop thinking of Fed as some kind of living legend I think.

Lost the tie-break :awww: Come on Robin - please don't let Fed beat you again :tears:

I'm getting tired of these tiebreak losses to Fed, Rose. :awww:

And now he's lost his serve in the 2nd set :sad: I just don't think he believes he can beat Federer - it's all in the head with this match-up :rolleyes:

The only positive thing right now is that it's an exhibition so it doesn't count in the stats. I guess we have to keep hoping that he doesn't draw Federer in the big tournaments :(

Yes, he's got to stop thinking and talking about it so much... I could almost sense he just wasn't in the mindset to take advantage when he got that set point in the first set. He plays really well against Roger, but on important points he will have ridiculous mis-hits that look as though he just has no belief. He has to stop thinking of Fed as some kind of living legend I think.

Sorry to piss on your party Tim, but this was in no way a serious match, and those aren't just 'excuses'. ;)
Fed was just entertaining the crowd most of the time with his S/V play - and I think Davydenko had that same attitude yesterday. That doesn´t equal ´not trying´, nope - and saying he 'gave it away' is over the hill, of course, but don´t think he´ll ever play like that in a serious match. No way!

And do you really think he´s still after that cash, after already having won over 50 millions of dollars (prize money, not even counting the endorsements, appearance fees, etc.)? I highly doubt it. It's pocket money for him, as idiotic as that sounds...
He gets 1 million on APPEARANCE FEE at every non-mandatory tournament he appears in, did you know that? (Same thing for Nadal, btw). ;)

That said, I'm happy for Sod, as he indeed did very well. It was his first exho, so no wonder it's very different for him - he'll surely try and win this thing.
People are still underrating him a lot (:rolleyes:), so he's out there to make his mark (again).

I updated my Sig, Karen, just for the next day or two. See Robin's compliment on Rafa and statement that they both have forgotton the past below.

I think most people are aware of the fact that Federer was in an exho-mode and could have done better (and probably won it as well). But in this case I don't think that matters. The important thing wasn't the match itself but the fact that he know will feel like he can beat Federer. Robin has the game to beat him but he hasn't really believed in it before, now he might start to do that. It's all about Robins head and confidence, not about Federer and how he played. Don't underestimate the placebo effect, at least thats how I see it :)

His pace definitely is maddening I think for the opponents, and it brings up the tension for the viewer too, Rose. Especially when it is that tight. It definitely works for him. :shrug:

Rafa just won. 7-6, 7-5 I think. It has been a frantic day just trying to get things to work.

Rafa looked really impressive. Robin had some bad mis-hits at some bad moments, but overall he looked solid I thought. Rafa hasn't looked that good to me in a long time. It's time to start putting him as a contender for the AO too. Unbelievable how he has changed his form since the WTFs and before. I am curious to understand what has turned it around for him. It doesn't make much sense. :shrug:

Robin's match is beginning now (see the live score link) and FromSport is still showing the Russell/Amritraj match. :eek::mad:
