oh no...I'm watching Pavel/Haas, but the commentators and Brad can't stop talking about Andy.

Bilbo

keep those updates coming

lsy
04-17-2004, 06:34 PM
It's hard to centrate on the match with Brad, Fish and another 2 commentators lol, now they're interviewing Fish...

it's pavel 2-3 on serve. Both players have little trouble holding serves so far.

Bilbo
04-17-2004, 06:37 PM
these two always had close matches

lsy
04-17-2004, 06:41 PM
3-3

I still can't give any advantage to any of them at this point.

man, now I understand how frustrating inappropriate commentators are. They are basically ignoring what's going down on the court!!!

lsy
04-17-2004, 06:42 PM

4-3 Haas now

lsy
04-17-2004, 07:19 PM
pavel is making some errors at crucial points and frustrated at himself.

lsy
04-17-2004, 08:06 PM
asia-malaysia.

cable tv, they show quite some tennis matches live.

2-2 (30) haas holds.

Seems like pavel want to take over the linesman job here, but so far his 2 calls are valid.

lsy
04-17-2004, 08:10 PM
Nice set up of points from haas and finish with a good volley to bring this game to deuce.

long rally, pavel send a forehand out, breakpoint to haas

that's good for you :)

in Germany, nobody of the TV stations seemed to have interest in the right for this tournament in Houston.

and Eurosport prefers to show some snooker instead of tennis action :o :banghead:

But who could know that Haas starts such a run to the semifinal :eek:

Hello !! do u know what´s the score of Tommy´s match?

lsy
04-17-2004, 08:14 PM
but pavel not panicking...

got out of trouble with an ace, error from haas and make it to 3-2.

3-3 (30) haas holds.

ya I do consider myself luckly Neely. They are going to show monte carlo live from 1st round onwards next week too, unfortunately my fav Roger pulls out but of course I'm still gonna watch.

haas send a ball to net, throw his racquet, biting his fist but it works followed with a great return of serves and volley; and another great volley from haas, deuce now on pavel serve

Neely
04-17-2004, 08:19 PM

I'm sorry tommy's gf, no idea about that match.

pavel has 7 aces to 2 for haas so far.

Pavel made erros while trying to close up the game and can't find his 1st serves, annnddd a df gives the break to haas after deuce #3

it's 4-3 now haas to serve

it's 1 set all for both and now haas serving at 4-3 3rd set.

Neely

Naldo meant Winners/UE ratio. Is it a good one?

lsy
04-17-2004, 08:36 PM
they both have their moments, played some good tennis and some errors too. But I think overall it's good enough to keep me interested at this early morning. Don't take my words though.

haas down a breakpoint but saved it with two aces and now match point.

pavel played a good point, save one deuce #2, another ace from haas, match point #2

and a great serves gave haas the match!

Congratulations haas and to the fans!

Neely
04-17-2004, 08:36 PM
tnx for telling me, Domino... didn't know that is called "clean" match in English

Havok
04-17-2004, 08:37 PM
exactly, i'm talking about the winners/errors ratio. is the match full of winners, or is it ugly and full of errors. that's what someone wannts to know when someone asks if its a clean match:D

04-17-2004, 08:39 PM
unbeliavable, pavel was serving more aces than haas throughout the match, and haas decided to catch up at the most crucial game. 3 aces gave haas the match.

They didn't show the stats for 2nd and 3rd set, so sorry can't give you details on that.

Goodnight all!
