No thread ?

Serra was 7-6 5-3 up and serving for a set, had one matchpoint and was broken twice in a row.

Good way to get rid of a pigeon status and Niemo's form continues

Another typical chokejob by a Frenchman, what else is new?

Karma is a bitch, Jarkko paid him back for than painful loss at the AO where Serra saved a match point in the 4th set with a terrific volley if my memory doesn´t fail me

Serra choked big time! Nieminen looks so old, so weak, and tired... it will be so easy for Richard :bounce:

Yes, it was a volley that Edberg would have been proud of. Never a bad day when Serra loses.

Another good win against a tough match-up for Jarkko. Hopefully he manages to keep it up in the next round, just for the sake of this Blackbriar dude

Gasquet will crush this old scumbag.

Imo more painful was the forehand drive volley chance by Jarkko on his first(?) mp in the 4th. Incredible luck for the ugly French. This volley winner was in the tb or even in the fifth?!

You don't like Serra?

I think he is alright. :lol: He doesn't have an interesting game, but he compensates for that with his choking talents. I find him a bit unpredictable, and I wouldn't say that is a bad thing. :D

Florent, even compared to your usual choker status, you are falling to pieces.

Expected victory for Jarkko. Serra has not been playing well almost the whole year long.

Bad loss, Florent. Had the match in your pocket and let it slip horribly. This is a great match-up for him obviously so this loss shows me he's in poor form.

Jarkko is in good form, though, and congrats to him on the comeback victory.

he had the match point and lost it, that's it

he can't cope phusically for much longer (mentally is clear) comming off a semi in Friday, in... Seoul :rolleyes:

he takes this MP and the pigeon thread goes again. all up to one point in this match
