Default Re: AO Round 4 - PHM. Pleasepleaseplease.

Wilander has been commentating for Eurosport today, and he likes PHM's chances for tonight. He hopes it will rain and the roof will be on, he thinks that will give PHM the advantage. He says Mathieu knows what to do to beat Rafa, he has been very close in the past. The other commentator asked him if he thought it would be a classic 5-setter like there has been the past couple of night and Wilander replied that he hoped PHM would win quicker than that.

Awwwww at Paulo.
Mats must be very disappointed. Hmmm, did something happen to Paulo's calf, did he strain the calf muscle or smth?
Anyway, VAMOS Rafa! Onto the quarters vs Jarkko.
Acc to you it should be tough, no?

I think it is a great way to win a Match Rafa was winning anyway, so with the retirement he didn't have to work very hard. It will let him get more rest so he can be fresher during his next Match Vamos Rafa

Rafa He was serving like a madman, PHM had no chance anyway. Into the quarters again, well done to the so called dirtball specialist.

oooh Rafa vs Mr WTA serve, what a tantalizing quarterfinal matchup. *kicks Andy again*

Well Rafa has defended his AO points so far. I hope he keeps serving well; it will be his key to success.


I don't know what people say about Nieminen, his 2nd serve or lack thereof, but personally I think he's scary:

^^ Ha ha he does look scary. Rafa defeated him fairly easily at Wimbledon and he hasn't met him since then. In my case, I am not really concerned with who plays him. I am more concerned with his round. It seems to me the most dangerous rounds for him on hard courts are 4th rounds and quarters. So somehow Niemenen will play the match of his life tomorrow. As for GM, it seems like as Nadal progresses further , the whining gets higher. God forbid he actually get to a final. However, since that is unlikely we can all be happy.

Youzhny was injured at Wimbledon, he certainly has the game to quite frankly kick Rafa's ass in the semis unless Rafa amps it up by then. The quarters and 4th rounds seem the most dangerous because that's when he always loses...if he gets to the semis or final, they'll certainly be more difficult.


I think it'd be interesting to look through that KaxMisha character's posting history to see what percentage of his posts include the word 'logic' or a derivative thereof.

That's true. I am just superstitious when it comes to Rafa. Obviously Youzhny is the biggest threat for Nadal in this draw but a five set match allows Nadal to come back a little bit more. However he has to play better than USO 2006.

As for KaxMisha, well he is the" upholder of logic" in this irrational universe. I once stated that I wouldn't mind Fed being no.1 if Rafa wins French and Wimbledon. He bad repped me saying "stop trolling, Nadal will never win Wimbledon". A little bit of a slip-up for his high standards I would say
