Come on Mardy! v Dent should be a good contest. And onto a possible semi v Roddick. The tougher side of the draw, I think. GO MARDY!

DartMarcus

Another easy win! 6-3 6-0 over Dent! :eek:
Mardy on fire can beat Andy! Come on! :bounce: :devil:

MARDY!!!! Big 76(5) 63 win over (1) Andy Roddick tonight. Fish-Isner final. Fish owns the 1-0 H2H record. Good luck Mardy.

SO happy for Mardy!!! Brilliant win. Gutted I couldn't watch it, or Newport, maybe I should just stop watching Mardy altogether. Bring on the USO! :D

Congrats to Mardy ! He is indeed in top form.
He is now ranked #23 in the "virtual" ATP race... See http://tennislive.free.fr/race

Mardy pulled out of LA! Smart move, no need to overplay at hardcourt season! :)
Washington next.

Pulled out of LA singles but what about doubles? I would think he pulled out but the draw doesn't show it (yet).

DartMarcus
07-28-2010, 02:16 PM
Mardy and Mark Knowles will still play doubles :eek:
Their draw could not be worse as they face Bryan bros in R1. :o :lol:
The winner of this showdown should take the title!

ktdude
07-29-2010, 09:35 AM
Why did he stay in the doubles? All that way to play the Bryan Bros, not a good plan. Now back to the East Coast again! Was it worth it Mardy? :rolleyes:

Oh well plenty of time to rest I suppose.

R2 Troicki/qualifier :unsure:
R3 Cilic? :armed:
QF Hewitt/Querrey :bounce:
SF Roddick? :devil:

So let's go all the way to the title! :rocker:

Hard road to the final - will be behind Mardy all the way! Come on!

DartMarcus
08-04-2010, 05:51 AM
Nice 6-4 6-3 win over Troicki! Mardy was broken twice, did not have very great service stats, but played very well on Victor's serve! Cilic next! :bounce:

ktdude

Very good win last night - I wanted to watch it but no live streaming :( Mardy will have to stay strong against Cilic - I think he can do it!

Ad Wim
08-04-2010, 10:24 PM
So if he wins against Cilic, does that mean he will miss Toronto qualis? In that sense it is a good side of losing to Cilic...

DartMarcus

Mardy and Mark reached DC final in doubles, where they will face Berdych and Stepanek in the final! Good luck! :bounce:

Congrats Mardy on winning Washington Doubles title with Mark Knowles! :woohoo:
On to Cincinnati next. :rocker:

Super exciting win! :)

DartMarcus

Mardy will face Gilles Simon in Cinci R1.
In doubles, him and Mark started their campaign by destroying Kohlschreiber and Monfils 6-3 6-2. :D
Come on! :bounce:

ktdude
08-17-2010, 03:46 PM
Looking forward to seeing Mardy start his singles campaign in Cinci later. Hopefully he can go all the way in the doubles too! I get the feeling he will play more and more doubles as time goes by. He seems to have the knack for it.

DartMarcus

Good win over Simon! Some really great shots. :worship:

I didn't think he was on point the whole match but man when he pulls some of those glancing volleys out of the bag it's poetry. Well done Mardy and best of luck today v Fer. I wish these two didn't have to play each other but a very interesting match-up.

Yeah, it gonna be a good match. Mardy needs to serve big to get a fair amount of free points. If Mardy serves like he did in Queens (was almost untouchable), he should beat Nando! Come on!

ktdude
08-18-2010, 08:22 PM
Mardy in 2!! Nando made a ton of UEs but some of Mardy's work at the net was incredible. He really needs to improve his 1st serve % though, it was starting to let him down in the 2nd set.

Gasquet next!! Come on Mardy!

DartMarcus
08-18-2010, 08:23 PM
Great win over top 10 player! Keep going Mardy! Gasquet next.

DartMarcus
08-19-2010, 06:55 PM
Mardy defeated Gasquet 7-5 6-2. Must have played very well! I have not seen a match. :(

DartMarcus
08-19-2010, 08:11 PM
Mardy to play Murray next!
He already beat Andy twice this year, in Miami and Queen's if i am not mistaken. :)

DartMarcus
08-20-2010, 06:50 AM
Mardy and Mark also won their doubles match pretty easily 6-3 6-2 over 3rd seeds. :eek: :worship:
Keep going!

DartMarcus
08-20-2010, 08:14 PM
Mardy beats Andy 6-7(7) 6-1 7-6(5)!
Amazing comeback win! :worship: One of the biggest wins of the year. :rocker:

Anyone think Mardy will pull out of New Haven after a good result in Cincinnati?

08-21-2010, 11:30 PM
He should pull out to get some rest; it has been quite a summer for him!!

ktdude
08-21-2010, 11:42 PM
So happy right now. Mardy is in absolutely unbelievable form. Shame about the dubs loss but he can concentrate on the final now. I don't see anyone beating him in this form. Loving every second!! :bounce:

DartMarcus
08-22-2010, 12:45 AM
I am so excited to see Mardy in the final of MS after beating such great players like Simon, Verdasco, Gasquet, Murray and Roddick! So proud of Mardy and also of myself as i have never given up believing in my fave! :devil:

Amazing run for Mardy, it's a shame he couldn't top it off with the win but doesn't take anything away from his awesome performance. Another big jump in the rankings too, nice!

Glad he pulled out of New Haven, definitely the best thing to do. Can't wait to see him come back strong in New York.

DartMarcus

Mardy's USO draw:
R1 vs Hajek - should not be a problem
R2 vs Cuevas/Silva - no problem hopefully
R3 vs Baghdatis - this one will be very hard, tough to predict, both are in a great form
R4 vs Djokovic - okay let's get to R4 first ;)

DartMarcus
09-01-2010, 12:24 AM
Mardy won 6-0 3-6 4-6 6-0 6-1.
A win is a win, but I almost had a heart attack after 3rd set. :hug:

ktdude
09-01-2010, 09:56 AM
I watched the last two sets after also having a heart attack!! Don't know what the hell happened in the 2nd and 3rd, the stats were ridiculous compared to the 1st and 4th! So happy Mardy came back strong though. Let's hope for an easier time against Cuevas!

The point to earn break point at 1-0* was simply amazing. :worship:

God yes. He can really pull off some breath-taking shots at times can't he! :worship:

DartMarcus
09-01-2010, 10:13 PM
Mardy and Mark won their R1 doubles match in 3 sets. :worship:
But 8 sets in 2 days is not really good.
It will be hard for Mardy to keep playing both singles and doubles for a whole week. :tape:
They get Bryans in R3 in doubles, so I guess it won't last long. :lol:

ktdude
09-02-2010, 12:28 PM
Yup Mardy really is going for it isn't he!! Let's hope he can go deep in at least one of the two, preferably the singles of course but either will do! Although as you say, with the Bryans in R3 it doesn't look likely!

Good luck against Cuevas today Mardy! Come on! :D

DartMarcus
09-02-2010, 09:04 PM
7-5 6-0 6-2 over Cuevas! Mardy is not playing very well right now, but still he looks very confident!
Next is Clement, who should be a tougher opponent than Hajek or Cuevas.
Go Fishy! :bounce:

DartMarcus
09-04-2010, 08:04 AM
Mardy and Mark won their R2 doubles!
They will face Bryans for a place in QF as expected! :bounce:
I would like like Bryans to win another Slam, but I always cheer for Mardy, so it is a hard match-up for me. :o
Tommorrow R3 singles vs Clement! Come on!

DartMarcus
09-04-2010, 10:33 PM
4-6 6-3 6-4 *1-4
Clement is playing amazing, but you can beat him, Mardy! Come on!

DartMarcus
09-04-2010, 10:40 PM
It is going to be a decider. :tape:
Clement is playing so well... Mardy's level of play dropped in 4th set. Please Fishy win this! :bounce:

DartMarcus
09-04-2010, 11:27 PM
Yeeeeeeeeah! What a win! 6-3 in 5th!
Hard work keeps paying off!

DartMarcus
09-05-2010, 02:56 AM
So now Mardy gets to play Djokovic for a place in QF! Their H2H is 4-0 in Djokovic favor, so Mardy is definetely not a fave of this match. If he improves his serve and forehand, he can stand a chance! Another important thing is that Mardy needs to come to this match as fresh as possible! He already played 18 sets this week, so it gonna be tough.
Come on Mardy! :bounce: You've got nothing to lose!

ktdude
09-06-2010, 10:12 AM
Got back from vacation to see Mardy is still going strong in both singles and doubles! Amazing. I really hope he doesn't tire - he will need everything he's got beat Nole, but I think the time is now to break the run of bad form he's had against him. So looking forward to this match, COME ON MARDY!!! :bounce: :bigclap:

DartMarcus
09-07-2010, 02:33 AM
Unfortunately Mardy lost in both singles and doubles today. Mardy was serving badly and playing a bit passive. I think the reasons of this must be strugling with wind and being tired!
Anyway amazing summer! Hope Mardy takes a rest, then keeps working on his game to bring his best to Asia Swing!

ktdude
09-07-2010, 09:23 AM
Really gutted about the loss yesterday. I watched the whole match and it just wasn't the same Mardy. He seemed really deflated, and wasn't sharp at all. So disappointing for him. No surprise at the loss in the doubles after that, let's hope for a good autumn for Mardy. Davis Cup next!

Got a great seat for the fifth set of Fish/Clement on Saturday and took loads of Mardy pics. Thought you guys might enjoy them. The link is available on my blog at http://achangeofends.blogspot.com/2010/09/saturday-at-us-open.html

My photobucket account also have pics of Mardy during the Newport final, which he won in July.
