melzer has no business in a GS semifinal. nole in 4 or 5 sets.

Nole's draws in the slams this year have been ridiculously easy. He will go out to the first decent player he faces. It COULD be Melzer, if he doesn't shit himself. I'll go Melzer in 5.

Melzer on fire is a more dangerous opponent for Nadal than half dead Djokovic

I normally don't think too much about the draw and I know it's not his fault but seriously his path to the semis is/was Korolev, Nishikori, Hanescu, Ginepri, and Melzer. Given that Melzer is the first decent player he's faced I expect it could be a difficult one. Nole in 5.

Not like I was thinking it would be an easy match for Nole at all, but now I´m really worried about Nole´s chances to win it

Melzer. I don't know how many sets he will drop though.

Puschkin
05-31-2010, 01:10 PM
If Jürgen just plays his tennis, he has a good chance. If he starts thinking about what he has done so far and gets carried away by that thought, he'll be in huge trouble.

Hewitt =Legend

Add that to his daunting Oz open draw of Gimeno-Traver, Chiudinelli, Istomin, Kubot and then getting beat by Tsonga. He will get beat by the first decent player he comes up against, he has been struggling for a long time.

If he continues with the form he showed in the last two sets today, this is a lock.
I'll be very, very surprised to see Melzer come even close to win here.
Interesting poll so far.

There was no problem with the original draw,JCF followed by in form Ferrer(that was going to be the toughest QF along with Soderling).Not his fault they lost and tbh having watched him play this week,bar mental hiccups,Melzer will be just as tough as Ferrer was going to be

Exactly. The initial draw was pretty tough.

Djokovic will have failed to take advantage of it opening up like this if he doesn't get past Melzer (eta: but Melzer is playing extremely well. It WILL be a challenge - which I think he needs).

Spot on. :) Melzer is there because he played well, not because he got byes or something. It's not like only top 5 can play tennis and the rest are there just to fill in the draw. :)

I'm merely stating that Nole has gotten extremely advantageous draws so far this year in the slams. And if you were not a delirious fan boy you to would admit he is struggling.

"Advantageous draw" is advantageous only on paper. Different thing on the court, as some of the top 10 or top 15 players were already able to experience. :p

If Djokovic loses this match he should cut his manhood and join the WTA tour. Good thing his serve is aleardy there.

Melzer has a shot with Djokovic struggling with fitness, but I think the Serb will get his act together and win in 4 before a respectable loss in SF.

Nole in 4, this Meltzer should not take his place in the semis, plus people wish for another Rafole match pronto. Don't spoil it for us, Jurgen. :wavey:

Nole is playing like crap but he will win anyway.

Fed=ATPTourkilla
05-31-2010, 10:32 PM
I haven't seen Melzer play but I don't think Djokovic is going to be easy to stop. All of his game is firing with the exception of his second serve, which is completely hopeless. In his last match he deliberately took 10mph off his first serve and served at 70%, which is a good percentage play given where he is.

Djoko in four.

Melzer has been simply on fire. He ripped Ferrer apart with an agressive all court display and him and Gabashvili played probably the best match of the tournament yesterday. If he doesn't bottle (witch he could, given his reputation - he is Jurgen Melzer after all), he has a really good shot in making the semis. Offcourse, Nole has the big match experience and altough he did not look all that impressive so far, he can always come up with the goods.

Pretty open match IMO. Nole is the favourite, but not as big as the 1,30ish odds might suggest. betting-wise, Melzer @4+ represents a very good value. should be interesting.

Now that Fed is out, Nole has the responsibility to win for the tennis................. I hope he gets his serve out of the emergency room just for another 3 matches.... That would be too much to ask................

Bargearse

Djoker I think will have more of a chance to remove Nadal, so I'm going for him. Never been too impressed by Melzer anyway, probably be easy QF for Djoker.

he plays the tennis of his life and is on a good streak. he's in the right mindset to pull off an upset. now it's up to Djokovic to level his game up.

It's a quarter of a grand slam and anything can happen (as we saw yesterday in Fed-Sod match). If Djokovic has another off day with below 50% serve, Melzer will win. If both play to the best of their abilities, Djokovic will win in 3 or 4 sets. It's all up to Novak really. If he plays with controlled aggression and if he manages to serve around 60%, there is nothing Melzer can do...almost everything Melzer can do, Novak can do better.

Personally, I think Novak will come through in 4 sets.

Nole fan
06-02-2010, 12:16 PM
We all agree it's on Novak's hands. A QF adversary in a Grand Slam is never easy. Melzer at this stage has nothing to lose and everything to gain. He's been playing great these days and he will be on a roll. It all depends on which Novak do we find today. The Novak that struggles with his serve and let's his mind and focus wander during one set or two. Or the Novak that played aggressively in the third and fourth set against Ginepri. If we have the latter one –I hope!– Melzer will be easy pie. If we have the former Novak, then hell can break loose. I really wish for a Rafole semifinal, I believe only Nadal can lift Novak's game. And their matches are always EPIC. So ALLEZ Nole! :rocker:
