I have met Blake in person and did not feel that he is sincere. Also don't care for his macho attitude on court and then feel good "say the right thing" personality. On the other hand, I think he does have a good side to him. I just think he is not the nice guy (nor the devil) as he made out to be sometimes.

Korolev's reaction after he got to his chair was really cute. He did a little hop & gave a thumbs up to the camera. Even Wayne Bryan was laughing.

The outcome is fine but it must have been tough also for Querrey to play under these circumstances.

way to go.. now just win the whole damned thing and shove it back up DeV's ass. it's great to see he kept his focus despite all the crap going on

Congrats, Korolev!! That's how you take care of business! :woohoo:

So...do we have a March bandwagon candidate if he reaches the finals or even wins? hmmm...:cool:

:yeah: Great result after so much confusion around him. Well Done

Adler
03-02-2007, 08:55 PM
If he wins - he's the winner of the bandwagon contest

anyway, don't you think it's the big moment for Marat to do sth big? top opponents are weak or out, so he can prove he can get back on top once again

I also hope he will win the tournament now, he really would deserve it after everything that happened this week!

03-02-2007, 09:03 PM
Well done Zhenya :yeah: Well deserved after the farce.

I still don't believe someone who has lost in a tournament should be able to win, but in this case I would make an exception just to point out the ridiculousness of the entire format.

Good for the kid. The unfair decision could have harmed his incipient career. It's hard to cope with injustice at that age.

Jaap
03-02-2007, 09:10 PM
It will be a farce if he wins the tournament as he has already lost a match.

Exactly and hence the reason why the round robin system is such a joke. I really hope they see sense and stop using it.

While it is good for Korolev to win this and stick it to the man, I would prefer that Safin get his act together and win this tournament.

well it wasn't blakes fault it's the organisers fault. we wouldn't be talking about this problem if blakes opponent didn't retire

Korolev will make huge strides in the rankings this year! well done!

Now, Mr Disney will invent some rule and Blake will play the SF :devil:

Really?? :lol: Mr De Villers and Blake are in deep shit now. i don't think it will ever happen :lol: and hopefully this is the last RR tournament of the year.

How is Blake in deep shit again?

Oh wait, he's not.

Dumbass. :lol:

Blake is a fraud. Spadea was right all the way.

Burrow
03-02-2007, 10:32 PM
wtf is up with the zhenya, his names evgeny..Ill probably end up supporting this lad as a frail replacement to Safin after he retires, he might as well retire now cause as he says "maybe win another couple of grand slams" its not going to happen.

The atcual Dumbass would be you. I'm sorry to report that your pal Blake has lost a lot of fans and lost respect and wait for media will be all over him. It is digusting to see a VP of player council trying to bend ATP rules . The rules are clear and you have to respect them and as a top representive he has the right to respect it. Get a clue pal.

I hope it's the last EVER. I haven't watched any 'RR tourney" this year and I never will. I was waiting for some inevitable fiasco like this to happen to slam De Villiers.

Good. Anna's cousin needs points.

He sure as hell does! And I think he'll get them. He needs to play as much tennis as he can. I hope he stays on this roll. The true test is how he plays against the best. Blake doesn't really count for me. He's good, but he can be beaten by anyone. Just line Elena Dementieva, on a good day she can beat anyone, but on a bad day she can be beaten by anyone. Same goes for Blake. :rolleyes: Korolev has the Russian attitude to his strokes: hard, big, flat and unrelenting. :worship: I hope he does well in the semis.

Congrats to Korolev on making his first ATP semifinal, I am sure there will be others to follow. Sam did not have a great serving day, if I am not mistaken that was his first loss on ATP level against a player younger than him. Now good luck in the semis RMK :yeah:

Yes the conditions were harsh. Very very windy. Certainly both players strugled with serve. But Korolev was very good from the baseline and saved a lot of break points. Sam din't play bad but he needs to improve his baseline game. His serve is big but serve doesn't work out during windy situations.

Korolev seems to be able to handle windy conditions quite well. The same thing happened during the Blake match.

yes he handled it pretty well.:yeah: Windy conditions will be a really good challenge for players. I love to see the tennis matches on windy conditions. I heard Blake had gone for hit or miss fh winners most of time but Korolev returned most of them back. :)
