I'm so 100% with Lleyton in this one.
Come on, Rusty!
Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.
Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.
First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
Good to see Rusty firing again.
Nice gentle draw to ease him back into form.
Will be great if he gets an SE into Atlanta.
Now to win the semis... Match might even be on a Fox channel this weekend.
I can't see Lleyton playing Atlanta when his current focus is on grass/the Olympics. He'll probably head back to London after this.
The Ram match up isn't bad for Lleyton, except for the fact that you get no practice against that style of player at all these days. Hopefully Lleyton comes out serving well and can put plenty of pressure on Rajeev.
3 of the four players were untouchable on serve. Lleyton played a few loose points from 30-15 at 5-6 in the first and then double faulted in the second set at 30-40 and that was basically the match over.
Let's hope for better play on the big points in the singles.
