Check the pictures thread that i've put some training photos on, and maybe you will change your mind. And if not, at least he will be happy to hear that.

Such a shame that match won't be on televised court. I really don't like the prospects for this one, but then again somehow he always does better when I am not watching him.

I don't know what to think of this match against Mahut, I mean it will be different because it's a match against a S&Ver so maybe form is less important for a match like that as it will mainly be about returning, serving and passing shots. David does normally match up well against players like that, but that still doesn't make me feel particularly confident. I can't help but notice in the next round IF he wins, he will play either one of his pigeons, Gasquet or Ancic, although for both of them, their favourite surface is probably grass.

Yes it sucks that it won't be on a live stream, but expected unfortunately. I was pleasantly surprised that his second round match was on a stream as it is.

Yeah, at least we managed to see him in action.

if you look at the names on the center court: Roddick, Djokovic, Nadal, and the local fav Murray...it's understandable his match is not in the center court

LOL, almost everyone once thought he/she gonna jinx his/her fav player, the same as u...and me

True, if his health was ok, I wouldn't say it's a bad draw.
