Well here is Tommy's Wimbledon thread. He said he wanted to make it to the Round of 16. But it would be great, if he could do better than that :)

I would be satisfied if he could only make it to Round 2 :lol:

:lol: Well Tommy isn't a true grass court player, but if Federer hadn't been in the way he might have won Halle :mad: Tommy could just forget about Wimbledon for all I care :rolleyes: I just want him well and healthy for the hard court Tournaments. That's really where Tommy has the best and most chances to win more titles IMO :D

I have a good feeling...itīs the same like last year. But this mishap with the ball stopped him then. :sad:

With a good draw he can win some matches i think! So we must wait...

I think if he's healthy and playing well, with a not too bad draw, he should easily reach round of 16 ;) All he needs to to is staying concentrated on his service games. Hopefully he gets it together in his head, that's one of the main problems ;)

Thanks yumo for posting that information :) I think if Tommy stays healthy and doesn't get a bad draw :fiery: he might do some winning :)
But as I said I'm more interested in the hard courts--what can I say I'm an American. And that is what we have-- hard courts!

It's surprising he won at most 3 matches on Wimbledon,in last few years he won even lesser,sometimes becoz of injury.He really needs some luck! :)

could, should.... all I am afraid of is a ball, that is lying around :lol: He can make it to the R16, but with all the bad luck he had in Wimbly he can be satisfied to reach round two without beeing forced to stop ;)

hi everybody im new, im mays :) and a huge tommy fan

Well, he got to the semis in Halle, so i dont see any reason what-so-ever for him not to get into the last 16 at Wimbledon, he certainly has the game, and to my knowledge is in somewhat good shape. so its all up to his mentality right now.

And for those of u saying that he isnt much of a grass courter, i am forced to disagree, i think he's a great one, and compared to others he's excellent!! :)

With a bit of luck, i with all honesty think he can make it!! unfortunately he always seems to be in federer's side of the draw, this time if hes in Nadal's, then i dont really see a reason for him not to go further, coz i think he has the game to beat Nadal on grass!!

I think there have always just been two things to stop Tommy, the first is his mental "strength" ;) and the second are injuries....

And you're right, when you look at his game he can really play very well on grass, he's got a very good serve, a flat and agressive game, good volleys and passing shots. Movement is okay, too. I think normally it's his second best surface after HC, okay propably third, because he's also a very good player on carpet, but there are also just very few tournaments...

Hello Chrissi :wavey: It is nice to see more and more posters in Tommy's Forum :D I hope he gets a draw that will help him get to the Round of 16 :) Most players would say they wanted to win the Tournament :eek: So since he is just asking for the Round of 16 I would really love for him to get that :angel:

Maybe someone will beat Federer before Tommy gets to him? I doubt it, but we can always hope :angel: I don't think Federer has been playing as well this year as he did last year, but still he manages to find a way to win unless he is playing Rafa. I bet he has nightmares about Rafa :lol: :devil:

Hey all
I know I haven't posted for a while, but I've been around. I really hate the W. draw this year, for so many reasons :lol: I really wish that Tommy could have been in the other half instead of in Federer's quarter, again. But at least he's healthy and we can keep our fingers crossed that he won't have any odd accidents this year.

Alexiana, are you sure about Tommy and Sandy? She comes and goes a lot since they have been friends for so long, but I know that they weren't officially together earlier this year despite her appearance in Australia. If being with Sandy keeps him from 'questionable' women, I'm all for it. :)

Tommy is certainly making it interesting. He won the 1st 2 Sets and is leading in the 3rd Set. I'm sorry I didn't write down the scores. I thought maybe someone was doing the scoring in here. I went to the Tournament scoring thread, but there are so many Matches going on and I didn't see any mention of Tommy so I went to the actual Wimbledon site.

06-28-2006, 06:09 PM
I don't know how late they play at Wimbledon :unsure: But the Women's Match that was scheduled before Tommy's Match is still in progress. It looks to be about over. The woman that won the 1st Set has a 4-2 led in the 2nd Set so I hope they get that over with. But even if Tommy's Match does get started I doubt that he can complete it :unsure: Unless he really rolls over the other player which I wouldn't mind abit :)

You might know that women's match has gone to 5-4 in the 2nd Set, but at least the woman that won the 1st Set is now serving for the match. I hope she wins it quickly!

16681
06-28-2006, 06:23 PM
That Match has now gone to 6 -5 :fiery: Win that Match!

16681

Finally that Women's Match is over :)

16681
06-28-2006, 06:44 PM
Tommy's Match is in progress and he is already ahead 2-0 in the 1st Set :) Maybe Tommy wants to get this Match finished today :aplot:

16681
06-28-2006, 06:50 PM
4-1 Tommy in the 1st Set :)

16681
06-28-2006, 06:56 PM
4-2 Tommy in the 1st Set and he is serving. But I doubt that there will be time for this Match to be completed :sad: :mad:

16681
06-28-2006, 07:04 PM
Tommy is serving for the 1st Set at 5-3, but this guy isn't going down as quickly as I would have liked :(

16681
06-28-2006, 07:08 PM
Well Tommy got the 1st Set won 6-3 :) 2nd Set hasn't started yet and I don't know how much longer they will be able to play :unsure:

16681
06-28-2006, 07:16 PM
Tommy is leading in the 2nd Set 2-0 :)

16681
06-28-2006, 07:23 PM
3-1 Tommy, but this Bloomfield or whatever his name is--isn't going down as quickly as I want him to :fiery: I don't know how much more time they have left :unsure:

16681
06-28-2006, 07:26 PM
4-2 Tommy in the 2nd Set.

16681
06-28-2006, 07:38 PM
4-3 Tommy in the 2nd Set and he is serving. That last game took forever :eek: I think Bloomfield is just trying to hang on so the darkness will save him which it probably will :fiery:

16681
06-28-2006, 07:45 PM
Tommy is serving for the 2nd Set at 5-4.

16681
06-28-2006, 07:48 PM
Tommy won the 2nd Set 6-4, but I noticed on other courts that play was being stopped :fiery:

16681
06-28-2006, 07:53 PM
The 3rd Set has started. Bloomfield served first and won the game now Tommy is serving. I don't know why some games have been stopped while others haven't been :shrug:

16681
06-28-2006, 07:57 PM
D*mn you might know this would be the Set where Bloomfield gets off to a good start :fiery: It is 2-1 Bloomfield, but they are on serve.

16681
06-28-2006, 08:00 PM
2-2 on serve in the 3rd Set.

16681
06-28-2006, 08:04 PM
3-2 Bloomfield in the 3rd, but they are on serve. At this rate Tommy might want the darkness to save him :eek:

16681
06-28-2006, 08:08 PM
3-3 in the 3rd and still on serve! Tommy just can't seem to break Bloomfield in this Set :fiery:

16681
06-28-2006, 08:11 PM
4-3 Bloomfield still on serve in the 3rd Set. I wonder if maybe Tommy isn't rushing to try to finish the Match today and that might be hurting his game right now :unsure:

16681
06-28-2006, 08:15 PM
4-4 in the 3rd Set still on serve. If Tommy is rushing he needs to quit because if Bloomfield takes this Set it could get interesting tomorrow :eek:

16681
06-28-2006, 08:19 PM
5-5 on serve in the 3rd Set. This may be going into a TB :scared:

16681
06-28-2006, 08:24 PM
6-5 Bloomfield still on serve in the 3rd Set. And more and more courts have had play stopped on those Matches.

16681
06-28-2006, 08:27 PM
They are in a TB :scared: I wonder how well either player can see by now :eek:

Thank you very much for the good news :D The stupid scoreboard stopped working after Bloomfield won the first point in the TB. I didn't know what was going on because the scoreboard didn't change yet the court didn't show the Match had been stopped either :( But Tommy won and got the Match in :yippee:

Thank goodness ;) :angel: But that scoreboard just about gave me heart failure :( If Tommy wants the Round of 16 I think he needs to raise his level of play. Yes he has won in straight Sets, but they haven't been easy wins by any means :rolleyes:

06-28-2006, 09:05 PM
Today it was easy altogether. Tommy without any problems on serve and lot of Bpīs. But this Bloomfield served very well in this important situations...especially in the second and third set.

Yes it was like Tommy got so he couldn't break Bloomfield's serve. And since I posted to you earlier and said the scoreboard just about gave me heart failure just showing Bloomfield with 1 point and nothing else--how would I have felt if that scoreboard had shown me 4-2 Bloomfield in the TB :eek: I don't want to sound like I'm putting Tommy down because I don't want to do that, but I expected him to win easier than he did :rolleyes: Maybe my expectations were too high, maybe I didn't know enough about Bloomfield, etc. whatever, but the Match just didn't go as I thought it would :shrug: But I'll take the win any day :)

Alexiana
06-29-2006, 08:24 AM
that would be almost worse than losing to Wang :lol: But I think something like that won't happen again, Hogstedt would kill him (hopefully ;) )

Hey, at least Wang did some good matches :lol: Don't blame it on Wang :lol:

Tommy played much better than on his match against Vanek. Bloomfield had a great and fast serve. He was hitting lots of service winners in difficult situations. But Tommy had the match under control and thats all that matters. :) Next opponent will be Santoro or Berdych. I hope for Santoro, beause I think Tommy can play better against him than against Berdych. :)

06-29-2006, 10:33 AM
Tommy just played what he needed to, and it was still enough to end the match yesterday, so no reason to be too critical :) I'm sure he's able to get to the next step of his game when he has to in next round. Hopefully against Santoro, that would suit him more imo (or i've got just too bad memories when i'm thinking about Berdych :lol: )

Hi Tommy Girl I have missed seeing you here :D Yes that may be a good thing, but something went on during that Match that Berdych had with Santoro, but I don't know what it was? There is an article in Santoro's Forum about the Match, but no one translated it so I don't know what it said? But some posters made comments like "used to like Berdych, but now I have no respect for him" and it was said "Berdych acted like an a*s during the Match". I don't know what the guy did, but apparently some posters really didn't like it :confused: I hope Berdych acts better when he and Tommy play :rolleyes:

Alexiana

I really hope Tommy will put his game together and beat Berdych :D I did bet against him :rolleyes: I'm so sorry :sad:

Well it probably was a good decision on Alexia's part because Tommy is getting beat :ras: The Match isn't completed yet so I didn't write down the score.

16681
06-30-2006, 06:10 PM
Well according to the scoring thread here at the MTF. They split the sets two apiece so it will be a 5 Set Match.

why are you always so negative? when a match isnt finished, there is no winner nor loser...!

now it's 6-7 in 5th set 15-30 :crying2:

Tommy's ball was originally called out by the linesman, but the linesman then ran up to the umpire and said he had made a mistake. Berdych wasn't happy.

Hawkeye's verdict? Hawkeye showed a perfectly tangent ball.

I don't like this Berdych :( He also acted ugly in his Match against Santoro :( I can't wait for Federer to get a hold of him :D And since Tommy will soon be back on hard courts I hope we won't have to be in the land of Denial so much ;)

06-30-2006, 11:24 PM

Tommy going a bit backwards because in former years he was a great 5 set record, but now he lost many long matches in five sets :sad:

it was not bad match of him, I hope he has good next tournaments


Berdych :smash: :fiery:

Thatīs right!

I saw the match on tape today! Tommy had good chances to win this too. Really angry was the Tie-Break where he gave away four setpoints. And Tommy served better in the final set until this last game. :sad:

Letīs hope he playing a good hard court season!

Alexiana
07-01-2006, 11:03 AM
Tommy baby :sad: I'm glad I couldn't watch the match, that would have cost me lost of nerves... But I kinda expected that so I'm not totally disappointed. And at least GERMANY is in the SEMIFINAL at the World Cup :bigclap: Damn, that was a close game.

And Tommy, let the hardcourt season begin :yeah:

I'm still pissed that Tommy wasted big chance in set #3 in the tiebreak to lead by 2:1 sets :fiery:

a luck that the next match would have been against Federer, so I can think he would have lost against Federer then probably :lol:

16681
07-05-2006, 01:32 AM
Yes Jogy he was going to get beat by Federer anyway, but I just wanted him to win that Match so he would be in the Round of 16. Since before the Tournament started that is what Tommy said he wanted :sad:

Oh Alexiana I like the way you put that :lol: The fact remains that Tommy has never defeated Federer in a Tournament. He did defeat him in an exhibition Match, but those don't count. Plus at Wimbledon we are talking about playing Federer on grass courts and so far no one has even taken a set off of Federer. So don't think there is any disrespect of Tommy when it was said he wouldn't have defeated Federer at Wimbledon. If Tommy defeats Federer, it will come on a surface other than the grass courts. And I would loooooooovvvvvvvveeeeeee to see that happen :D

It's not true that Tommy never beat Roger. He did it twice on HC. One time even at the Aussie Open. But this year only at the exhibition. He should have won that Aussie Open match this year :sad: I'm sure he has everything to beat Roger on any surface, but he has to be on top of his game and nothing around him should stay in his way to bother him.

Ooops sorry I should have made that read Tommy has never beaten Roger since Roger has become the player we
all know him to be now--World's #1. But I still say if Tommy were to defeat Roger now it wouldn't be at Wimbledon on the grass courts. That is just IMO.
