EEWWW what is that shirt (GAG, GAG). Not liking that he changed from his lucky orange shirt.

THose looking for stream - www.channelsurfing.net has 5 courts and doesn't have the stupid pop up ads on the screen. In the US I think espen360.com has several courts (unfortunately my internet provided does not get that).

Clearly Murray is the fitter of the two, but we might not have to worry about the fitness factor. At this rate Richard has the upper hand and if the confidence + crowd keep going, then this will be over before it goes the distance. Or so I hope.

Atmosphere is fairly dead.. Richard is not doing much help with his grimaces and not showing much emotion.. maybe showing more emotion would help him and crowd would get involved?
it is always the same with French crowds, they cheer when their guy is leading and become dead-silent when he is in trouble. I never understood that.,

I was thinking the same, he could use crowd support to get pumped up again. Come on Frenchies, create that atmosphere :mad:

How is he playing, the French crowd won't help a player if they think the player isn't trying their best./

Yes it would be a shame, because tennis full of variation will lose against boring tennis. However, the context is different to the Wimby match.

And I am totally lost with my understanding of Paris crowds, in Nice they would cheer him on! They see that he needs them and whatdo they do: stay silent! :rolleyes:

Did you see that last point? And he is not trying?

Not in terms of his real progress BUT in HIS mind if he does another Wimbledon on his home turf I can't help but think that he will be crushed and the trophy from Nice will not mean much.

ANother loss EXACTLY the same will weigh on HIS mind a lot longer than the win in Nice. Don't know about you but when I let a match slip through my fingers it always makes me feel like shit and to do the exact same thing against the exact same person would be a killer. I don't mean he's finished or anything but I just mean this loss would mean a lot more than the wins.

This is COMPLETELY different to that Wimbledon match.. he is clearly in ALOT of pain.. he can hardly serve properly now.. he took 2 sets off the world number 4.. injured and tired.. I am proud of him.. and he is STILL fighting as hard as he can even though he can barely move and Andy is yelling come on and carrying on like an imbecile.
