No thread?

Unlucky for Mahut not to win this one, tight match.

Mahut had set points in the first tiebreak and led 5-2 in the second before losing the next 5 points :sad:

Missed opportunity for a great win really...

Typical Mahut - completely useless tie-break player with extremely pathetic record - 29-61 (0.322), never in doubt despite seemingly a close match :zzz:

I don't even know how he managed to choke away that tiebreak lead. The match would have been his otherwise because Sod was miserable and played miserably out there today.

Mahut should seriousy have won this in two, incredible that he didn't take at least a set.

I didn't know about that tie-break record, that's abysmal.

02-17-2011, 06:37 PM
Damn it. :mad: This Mahut, so close yet so far.

02-17-2011, 06:39 PM
Soderling was fucking awful, but then he was ill :o

Either way is a win is a win but I kind of feel for Mahut :(

Robin played on 50% and was a bit ill been having a cold or something. Mostly serving and errors and winners here and there zzzz... Robin will lose to llodra and get a good break untill DC..

Hilariously bad match, Robin footwork and baseline game were horrific. Serve saved him in this one. Although thruth be told, Mahut wasn't much to the world either, he started the first set really well but was pretty bland after.

Mahut and Hanescu two biggest chokers on tour.

02-17-2011, 06:55 PM
Soderling did everything he could to lose, but still wasn't enough

ffs nico

02-17-2011, 07:36 PM
Huh. Would probably be best if Robin lost to Llodra now.

Pfff, typical Mahut this. So close to a big win, but doesn't get it in the end.

02-17-2011, 08:04 PM
Robin. :bigclap: Teach Nando how to win a TB please. :o

02-17-2011, 08:09 PM
Damn :sad:

Mahut.... Jesus.
Nice job taking the gift, Robin

02-17-2011, 09:05 PM
Mika will finish Soderling in next round

02-17-2011, 09:26 PM
Don't know how Mahut lost this. Soda was terrible from the baseline, looked sick.

Llodra should do the job as Malisha said.

yeah Sod said he has the flu. fade material tomorrow.

That breaker record is shambolic. Know of a worse one Voo?

02-17-2011, 10:46 PM
Robin should put out if he has cold, imo.

02-17-2011, 10:47 PM
Robin should put out if he has cold, imo.
Has Jenni been complaining he's not putting out? :p

If he has the flu, he might not even make it onto the court.

im afraid soderling wont be winning any slams for sweden.

02-18-2011, 12:25 PM
Robin :inlove:

02-18-2011, 12:27 PM
Hopefully he wil first beat Llodra, then withdraw.
