He has a lot of feel, has a good tactic to hurt moya exposing his forehand so much. I think Mardy really was great at countering Moya, playing angles and down the lines to keep Carlos unsure. He could attack and defend/pass or use finesse too. He is very talented and not just all power. :)

Carlos hates FISH (not him personally but Fish ;) )
and i'm starting to feel the same way
be it cold fish or big fish :mad:

Carlos really didn't play a good match at all
just one good set and that was set 4 when he took command and hit bigger than in other sets

1st set, Carlos took advantage of a nervous Fish, i only saw the last two games of 1st set. But its his own fault he let the Fish back in, *4-1 up in the tiebreaker he DF and gives the momentum back, still he had two chances to make it 6-3 7-6 but didnt take them.

His serve wasn't working too good either.

just another night match he's lost at a slam :mad:
thats last two at Aus Open and 3 at US Open

Well Carlos has been having some troubles with one of his elbows the past few days and has got some treatment, so I guess he wasn't at 100%

But it's a very deserved win for Fish, he gets all the credit for it. Congrats.

There's gonna have to be a "Fish Suffocaters" thread soon
Oh TBE, you should consider removing JFC from your sig so you don't look so odd saying such things ;) ;)

But really - Fish Suffocaters is damn lame.

You can do better than that.

"Fish out of water" or something, is even better than that.

TBE, I like most of the Russians, but why do you seem to just systematically dislike most of the young Americans. Mardy is a good sport and played well. What is so terrible about him? :(

Mardy is a great counterpuncher. And he definitely has no pressure since all the attention is on dickhead. He has a complete game.

By the way - I forgot to add that not only am I dissapointed that Moya lost (I was drooling at the possibility of a tenth match up against you know who:

<<<<--------- )

But I didn't get to see the match on TV, and likely won't see much in the way of clips of it.

So anybody who has seen it - aside from what has already been said ;)

ANything to add?

Congrats to Fish!
martinatreue I agree with what you've said.

BTW, I never noticed how attracted Fish is. :hearts: :D

(TBE, do you hate all American 'Young or just Players? B/c they beat your favs. or what? :confused: )

TBE is just a big hater ;)

But seriously now - TSN just aired it, so I caught the last set.

In the last set Moya was making a LOT of uncharacteristic errors - he couldn't even count on his forehand, which is his main weapon. He also wasn't serving well.

That, and Mardy just didn't let up - he didn't "choke". There was no opportunity to wait for Mardy to collapse, because he didn't do that.

Only seeing one set doesn't tell me what it is about Mardy that messes Moya up though ,because as I said - in that last set, Moya was making so many errors anyhow :confused:

This is dissapointing for Moya though - his slam results in the past year have left something to be desired - I have a feeling he might bounce back in time for RG though (wishful thinking?).

Nope i just hate the ones that beat my favs :mad: :fiery:

Fish played pretty well though, but if Carlos raised his level 5-10% he would have come thru.

Just very disappointing.

BTW... the Fish Suffocating thing was me trying to be a little funny :eek:

Oh TBE - I know :p

I was just pointing out that it was a cute idea, with a very lame name.

Besides - how many people really dislike Mardy and Ferrero enough to keep that going? Hewitt is universally appalled, so that thread was easy to keep up ;) This time it might jsut be you and Tennischick. But hey - if you enjoy ice fishing, than I guess that won't be such a bad thing ;)

Ahem. I can't speak for tennisman, but I believe Andy beat Chela pretty easy at the USO. I think he will do just fine. :D

I know that Becca. I'm sayin' in general Andy prob. Can beat Chela easly. But whatever, I'm like the only one who supports Roddick here. :rolleyes:
