just a few more enigma points for the already brimming Fogmeister. No matter who is on the other side of the net, Nole or a 59-year old retired Harold Solomon, he just does his own thing.


couldn't watch the match, so didn't

I like Nole. He was robbed by Rafa in the last Olympics. Let's face it. We all want to see Fed Nole final. But Beneteau will take Fed out tomorrow and Murray will win it

C1, no live streams, I finally found a lousy one, then it started raining ... got up so early to see this match, then rain, then I fell asleep, missed the whole thing. screw you organizers. silly morons, you are scheduling the best player in the world to play or C1 while Tsonga is on CC, whatever.

It's tougher than Falla. And Roddick is tougher than Benneteau. And for sure Cilic/Hewitt is tougher than Istomin/Mugler so keep trying

Falla is way tougher on grass.
And Benneteau is way tougher for Federer than Roddick, although I reckon Roddick is way tougher for Nole than Benneteau.

Well, I myself was frustrated I couldn't see Novak's all new glorious blue shirt. It seems Uniqlo were onto something from his and Kei's outfits. How the BBC decided to show Tomug is beyond me :facepalm:.

Uniqlo is doing a great job so far :) One has to wonder though, what kind of over the top shirt would ST produce for Olympics, but I guess the world just wasn't ready :lol:

I agree that Nole looked damn good in his Olympic outfit. Now that's the proper way an Olympic athlete should be dressed. A simple, stylish design that emphasizes the country's colors without resorting to distracting, crazy patterns & symbols.

Nole's game, on the other hand, did not present itself as well apart from his serve. He seemed to be having trouble finding the range on his forehand and return in particular. I think this had a lot to do with his poor movement on the surface, but things seemed to be clicking better as the match progressed. He'll need to continue to improve if his draw holds to form.

court 1 was not too empty in the beginning. When the match started after more than 2 hours of rain delay, I think it's about 70-80% but after the other rain delay, most people gave up.

On a more serious note, did you snap out of it yet? Or are you just a relapse waiting to happen should you relive emotions from a couple of weeks ago? :p

they should have played on some hc next to olympic village. this 'grass' is not good enough, nor close enough.

Same surface and conditions for everyone. Plus, Nole is so good at sliding on court, it should be an advantage really.

They should ban grass, those conditions are risky to the players and can cause serious injuries!!

we only want red clay as surface!

Just fuck off :mad:. Both the Fog and JG are good players. JG is still a work-in progress, so who knows how good he can get.

Roddick has a chance vs. this Djokovic.

Pretty sure he doesn't :lol:

A guy like Djokovic shouldn't have dropped a set against the Fog. I would go far as to say that 1st set he dropped was out of compassion.

Maybe 'Dick can take a set if he serves well. :D

This match reminds me of Stepanek vs Djo in Wimby. The result was inevitable.

I'm still not convinced that he can beat Murray yet.

From hero to zero. This guy has been rubbish in tight situations this whole year. Talk about folding like a cheap tent every time he has to serve for the set or save a bp :(

Thanks for the defense :yeah:

I dunno, man. On this grass, vs. this Djokovic, in best of 3? After winning 2 titles in the last 6 weeks or so? With that serve? So long as he navigates past Klizan, Roddick has at least a puncher's chance.

How is losing a set to the Fog on grass better than losing one to Falla?

Just another manifestation of tard wars.

Eli, Roger's ranking indicates that he is, in fact, the best player in the world. :D
