Default WIMBLEDON!!!!

Tommy's worst surface, and his worst slam... so maybe this time he can change something... I don't know - he played really crappy last year, I mean Dupuis almost beat him.

But this year I'm optimistic - good few matches at Halle and his net skills have seemed to have sharpened slightly.

And the best news - a very good draw!!!! For Tommy 4th round is a realistic possibility - he can beat Canas and Johansson - we'll just have to see if he produces his proper tennis this time - but this could be a good Wimbledon for Tommy.

I hope he can avoid Canas if possible. He didn't look good against Canas the last few times they met, Canas has won three or four matches in 2004 against him, among them on hardcourt and indoor. Seems like a bad match up for him. But as for the rest, he certainly could do something this time in Wimbledon, at least the start up was promising.

ToJo is also a very good player on grass, a bigger hurdle in a possible third round.

I was shocked when seeing that we don't have a German vs German lineup in the 1st round

I think Tommy's draw could have been worse So I'm happy for him, go for it!!!

Tommy looked really good on grass in Halle, and his draw, although not easy, looks to be the easiest. Tommy is indeed looking good on his serve and volley. I read an article by a tennis analyst who said that Tommy's game is "very suited to grass." What a coup for Tommy to do well and go all the way at Wimbledon!

Go Hasi Honey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me too. I believe Tommy can go real far this year, judging from the results in Halle. I still believe he was playing as good as Federer on the semis, and that they could have gone to a third set. I think Tommy feels comfortable playing on grass so far. Let's hope he'll keep it like this all the way through!!

Tommy retired from his match today after losing the first set. Does anyone have any idea what is wrong with him (other than Jogy's bad karma )?

Default Re: WIMBLEDON!!!!

Some news say he twisted his ankle badly before the first point was played. That would correspond with the info somebody gave me in the scoring thread that Tommy stepped on a ball while warming-up. And this hurt his ankle.

I hope it's only a sprain and nothing worse so that he can play again in two or three weeks after Wimbledon (otherwise I don't guess he would have continued).

....


edit: "ankle joint injury" should be the correct translation I guess

Actually, 'ankle sprain' or 'ankle injury' is just fine.

Well, that is just the worst luck. Hope he recovers from that very quickly, he has points all over the place this summer.

Bad karma is when you express negative opinions or wishes for someone else and it comes back to negative results for you. You were a bit harsh on some of the other players at Wimbledon and now your favorite player is unlucky. Some people would call that bad karma.
