We are going to have ONE livescoring thread in GM for all matches in play.

This thread will be used for people who want to livescore and comment on live matches.

No other threads in GM will be allowed to be used for livescoring or live commentary.

Standard GM rules apply in this thread - this means excessive bad language, attacking other posters, trolling, etc.

These posts will be dealt with as normal and if there's too much rulebreaking which adds too much to the moderation, then this trial will be ended.

Any questions, PM mods.

you can see by the way the balls bounce the conditions are really different from yesterday's. i'm not sure Soderling will be able to play at the same level as he did yesterday, with Nadal's high bouncing topsin and under these conditions.

Well then if you are going to explain it like that you are not going by what you said at first. Your original statement only said "djokovic used up all his luck, now will be left against rafito", or something along those lines. Clearly making it seem that he has been lucky thus far. As for the netcord argument, I can say so many times how Djokovic could have beaten Federer, Nadal, or Murray if it wasn't for a netcord on a set point, tie-break etc.etc. But then you would have to understand that's a normal part of the game,,

I think it's fair to say that Almagro is playing very well, takes the ball early - which is what brings Rafa into trouble.
If Rafa continues playing like this, I guess even Djokovic will have a shot in the semis. Not to mention Soderling or Berdych. :help:

Well then if you are going to explain it like that you are not going by what you said at first. Your original statement only said "djokovic used up all his luck, now will be left against rafito", or something along those lines. Clearly making it seem that he has been lucky thus far. As for the netcord argument, I can say so many times how Djokovic could have beaten Federer, Nadal, or Murray if it wasn't for a netcord on a set point, tie-break etc.etc. But then you would have to understand that's a normal part of the game,,

ofcourse it is mate

i just think hell need all the luck he can get against Rafa...and its not like luck is always on one side...its often 50-50


and he will need it against rafa

Perhaps you should check the ATP/ITF Rule Books.
I love Rafa, but won't close my eyes for the fact that indeed, he takes too much time very often. I won't call it cheating though, as I think it's all the fault of the umpires who refuse to enforce the rules first and foremost.

I'm not watching but if I read correctly he went to change rackets at 30-30? thats pretty lame, unless a string was broken? I'm sure he could ahve finished the game. There should be no racket changes in the middle of a game unless strings are broken. Also, why are the rackets always packed away in their bags, wrapped in a plastic bag. Can they not put 1 racket out that is easily available.
