Geeez, Rochus played unbelievable, never seen him play this well. Has he been taking lessons from Federer? Granted Jarkko did play like crap, Rochus played some sweet tennis with skill and power off the baseline. Jarkko did make it tougher at the end though, well played by Rochus to pull it out.

:yeah: Christophe was amazing today. And a gorgeous last volley to close it out! I really really hope he wins tomorrow.

"You mess with me, you mess with all my family!"

by Olivier Rochus after this match.

However, It had everything to be easier.

Didn't see the match, only the score - so clone Rochus won then. Was Jarkko tired after playing 'til 1.00 a.m. to flatten the other clone?

Well they did that to Jarkko after late QF match and he said that he couldn't go to sleep before 3:30 AM because it took so long :o

The scheduling stinks, one QF early and the winner of this to play the winner of the QF on late evening - stupid, and unfair.

Seems like Christophe can play some inspired tennis in patches, last year in Hamburg was unbelievable

Ohhh these midgets :rolleyes:
By the way, have you heard this one: A guy is standing at a urinal when he notices that he's being watched by a midget. Although the little fellow is staring at him intently, the guy doesn't get uncomfortable until the midget drags a small stepladder up next to him, climbs it, and proceeds to admire his privates at close range.

"Wow!" comments the midget. "Those are the nicest balls I have ever seen!"

Surprised and flattered-the man thanks the midget and starts to move away. "Listen, I know this is a rather strange request," says the little fellow, "but I wonder if you would mind if I touched them?"

Again the man is rather startled, but seeing no real harm in it, he obliges the request. The midget reaches out, gets a tight grip on the man's balls, and says, "Okay, hand over your wallet or I'll jump!"
