i'll Second that :)

our man's in action in the Netherlands 2 all :D

VAMOS DELPO ! ! ! :cheerleader:



................................

one set closer to the second round ...



.................................

must admit I fell back to sleep ... started watching 5:45 a.m., and the match lasted 2-1/2 hours, 3 sets .... Llodra's a former title holder here, and he knew just how to play to Juan's weaknesses ..... happily, that wasnt enough ... Delpo seems improved at the net, came forward more than I remember, was rather successful there

anyway ... Delpo won 64 67 64 :cheerleader:

his second round opponent will be Slovakian Karol Beck, the qualifier who took out Petzschner in the first round ... these two have never played in the past ... but i'm guessing our man will make it thru to the semifinals, where he will most likely battle berdych ... then federer? for the final

what a tasty dish to set before the king

Is that a giant tennis ball? I couldn't figure out if it was in the venue or just on the corner of the TV screen. :confused:

Saw the last set, not particularly great his form, but Llodra is a tricky opponent and serve & volley game always gives punchers headache.

Glad he made it through.

Watching Delpo-Beck and he's up 2 breaks 3-0 in the first set and now he seems to have taken a medical timeout for some sort of nose/breathing problem? I don't get it...

What is worrying that his forehand has not much forward speed lately. It's more like a moonball shot with a lot of spin. He should hit it a bit more like he did before.

It's actually his backhand that's letting him down a little bit in the past two service games. His return game has been pretty amazing though today. I think he'll be fine...

He can lose this set and the match as well. It would be a smart move to skip the coming events and go back and learn the basics again. Horrible to watch.

Against Beck it's not that difficult. Still, Beck broke him more than once in the first set. Awful stats to say the least. I'm sure Berdych will beat him easily :(

lol at the naysayers :lol:

those of us who are delpo fans know (as apparently the commentators and some others don't) that he gets nosebleeds ... today he got a nosebleed for which he had to take a medical time out and received some very nasty medicine up his nose to control the bleed, so it was a bad one cuz it usually only takes a stopper to control it.

don't know the cause, but the result can be impaired breathing.

At least Delpo didnt go the way of federer, who lost his first set today to the world no. 151 :eek:

winning the first set is something to cheer about ... vamos delpo! :cheerleader:
