What?! They make Roger play again today, and play twice? A lot of the others seem to be getting a day off. Still, if he wins, I guess he'll have two days.

Why the heck did all the guys play yesterday? Why didn't they split them? They have plenty of time. This schedule is absolutely crazy.

It is quite crazy, but at least it's the same for Fish.

Tricky_Forehand

OK, I respect ESPN manipulating the schedule to fit their pathetic two hour blocks but how ridiculous is it that, here in the States, we've yet to see Tommy play when this is not only where he got his first win of the season but the fact that this is his first time in the round of 16 at IW. The head of programming at ESPN is showing how truly clueless he is. Tommy is due on at Noon with Roger to follow (the "featured match") and then after Roger's match finishes in 60 minutes I have no doubt that instead of showing some of Seb & Guille to follow...they'll go back to the yawnfest that was Marat's meltdown or Agassi's snoozer. This so-called coverage just seems to be getting worse :rolleyes:.

Good Luck:

Tommy
Sebastien & Guille :sad: I can't choose between the two

Nicolas K./Rainer
Jonathan Erlich/Andy Ram
Mark/Daniel
Max/Mahesh
Rafael/Tommy R.

This is true. At least whoever wins the singles will definitely have a day off afterwards.

Looks like they have split it into top half / bottom half. Why they didn't do that yesterday, I cannot think.

According to the tourney schedule (singles), that's it. But when the double is added, it all sucks. Can't they just work out a more reasonable OP for those players involved in both singles and doubles? Roger as well as Mardy, take good care of yourselves pls.

I'm thinking different... Hewitt lost the game yesterday because of brutal errors... gifting the match to Chela... IMO, it was not Chela's strength that was responsible for the Hewitt defeat... Hewitt has beaten himself, over 50 unforced errors and serve percentage under par...

but Chela is looking strong right now, everything is possible

I've never been a Hingis-fan, but it's not that I don't like her.
On men's side I cheer for Rogi (think you noticed that already :p), clement and Coria. But there are a lot of other players I like, like the scandinavian and belgian players and also Guga :)

Nasty, that was Haas' first double of the match and what a time to serve it.... I always thought Chela could be dangerous though, he's one of these unpredictable players who can go on unstoppable runs at times. He's made the quarters at a hardcourt TMS before, Miami back in 2002 where he beat Roddick, Escude and Gaudio before losing to Rios, so he's definitely got the experience. Haas winning 83% of first service points, but just 33% on the second, that's a very telling stat - Chela is getting the upper hand in all the long rallies.

I should say Chela tried to force Lleyton's mistakes with the help of long claycourt type rallies and good nerves. Hewitt had nothing to do but attack and that's not his strong side.

Tommy is using bad words loudly. Same story today, hah? ;)

Probably, although it might be a little too late for them... they tend to end their main coverage at midnight, but then will let a match run on and show it on the interactive channel if it's on one of the outer courts. Coria/Grosjean's on centre, so maybe not. I won't know till I get access to a TV on Thursday, you see...

It will be very difficult, but remember Roger did win all matches lately, only not against Henman. So I think he'll be able to win.

Tommy :sad:

But I'm not too sad because he had a great run. Not only did he get his first win of the year here but he also got to the round of 16 for the first time at IW. Not bad for a guy who was 0-2 coming in and didn't play for almost a year and a half.

I'm sure he'll be disappointed in his press conferenve but I hope not too much. He's proven to himself that he can do it again!! :D

Good for Juan Ignacio!! He's been impressive!

Fish is serving at a less than impressive 20%, but has only lost one point on his second serve thus far - Federer needs to step up his returning soon.

I think Fish is a great one also... like his person a lot... he can also play very great tennis and when he runs hot he can beat lots of players... he was so often very close to beat Roddick... Fish is a great one, no doubt!

He's repeating those mistakes here...too bad...

Yeah.... exactly. He'll hit a great shot right on the line and then totally bomb an error. Too bad :( He's so nice to watch play

03-16-2004, 10:55 PM
I gather Fish is playing somewhat like Gonzalez yesterday, great points followed by howling errors - I have to say, just looking at his serving stats from his last two matches he did seem to be playing very erratically. Consistency is not his strong point, but if he improves he could trouble all the top players... and this match isn't over yet, I'm sure.

Deboogle!.
03-16-2004, 10:56 PM
I still don't understand why Mardy chose to receive first :o

YES, Mardy has shown he can play with the best of them with all his wins at Cincy last year. Except for the horrible errors, Mardy is hanging in the rallies with Roger decently.

But, I think it's pretty much over lol

If Federer continues to play like that over the whole year he will win almost everything I guess... he's just too strong for everybody... as his opponent, only thing you can do is hoping for one of Federer's worse days...

Mardy's missing shots ALL over the place. gah this is ugly. Credit to Roger b/c he's throwing Mardy off, but it's exposing what Mardy needs to work on and it has nothing to do with what he does with the little yellow fuzzy balls.

And now a bad call on break point against him. I guess when it goes badly it just goes really badly

Sjengster
03-16-2004, 11:20 PM
Woh, WTF happened there? Fish is crumbling fast, it seems... was that simply a game of 4 cheap errors in a row, bunk?

I was not even paying attention Sjengster. The call on break point was bad, Mardy's ball was right on the line, he's had too many double faults and he just can't get ANY balls on court at all. I mean really bad. Yes credit to Roger but he had help today.

Sjengster
03-16-2004, 11:23 PM
Nice way to seal it with an ace! 1 hour 11 minutes, a little longer than his first two matches but I had expected something much tougher. I'm glad he's conserving his energy, but as you say bunk Fish has much to work on. It sounds as though keeping the ball in the court would be a decent start.

Deboogle!.
03-16-2004, 11:24 PM
Yea... let's see he missed at least 2 easy overhead sitters, and about a million volleys into the net, some of them when he had an open court. When they were rallying and Mardy was playing ok, he was hanging right with him most of the time. Mardy can definitely play better than that, but it was all mental.

Deboogle!.
03-16-2004, 11:25 PM

I hope not RF, but Chela is clearly confident at the moment and it'll be a completely different match to this one... few big serves, and also VERY few errors from him compared to Fish today. Federer does lead 2-0 in their record on hardcourts though.

Ah, PMac isn't the most intelligent and insightful commentator out there, is he? "Come up and get the keys to this thing, Roger!" etc...
