Yeah, we know. Well done to them. Looks like a layup semifinal for them if Jack and Vasek close things out.

PAYBACK time for PAES v/s Nestor-Zimonjic

How does someone feels when you lost to a certain person again and again on your favorite surface? Hope not great..We know Leander's favorite surface is grass, he loves playing on grass...

Now he lost to Zimonjic at Wimbledon Semis 2006/2007 and 2008.The first two were against Santoro-Zimo and the last one against who else Nestor-Zimo...

But Leander knows how to pay back them...Last year Q-F and this year same stage once again...Do I have to add anything...:D


BRINGGGGGGGGGGG ON TWINSSSSSS..Want to see how you play on grass against Paes- Stepss:worship::worship::worship:

UPSET?? The way Paes-Steps plays at grand slams I don't agree with your word upset... Want Twins v/s Paes-Steps final here...
Seeding, history of this matchup and they haven't had a great year.

Well I love Bob and Mike but I also love that they are twins...As far as my memory goes in 2003 Leander met Bob and Mike at Wimbledon Q-final partnering David Rikl..Right?

For two sets it seemed like this would be a very easy 3-0 for Nestor/Zimonjic. Stepanek was awful on his service games and Nestor/Zimonjic had the possibility to break in many games while they were holding easily. It was Paes who lost two consecutive points on his serve in the tb for 2-5 and then the improbable turnaround happened with some great play at the net.

I agree...But they don't play my friend, except 3 Grand Slams and few TMS...So I would request you to check their BIG MATCH records before calling it a upset...

Cool... no issues just my opinion :)

Great win :D

Most likely Pospisil/Sock in the SF(they are serving for the match in the 4th as I write this). That means on paper, Paes/Steps easiest match would be in the SF :lol:

Yes, upset. Other than what lupojohn already told you: Bookies. Every bookie that I saw that N/Z as slight favourites. As I mentioned in the WWW thread, I personally thought they were even bigger favourites than the odds suggested.

Their form was questionable. After a not so great early hard court season with Steps, Paes missed the entire clay season for his custody battle. At that time Stepank had only one noteworthy win with Haas over Kubot/Lindstedt who were themselves on a terrible streak. And add non-spectacular grass warm up to that. On the other hand, N/Z had been on a role this year. So, yes, upset.

Bookies are bookies only...not tennis pundits...And I believe myself and DartMarcus have already predicted over you and scored..Right?

Firstly, this is not a prediction:

Paes and Steps beat 3 quality teams, while N/Z played against a bunch of clowns, so I don't think we can judge their form based on the tournament. :lol:
Secondly, predicting who will win is not the same as stating who (in your opinion) is the favourite. And on the same point, I only stated who I thought was the favourite, never made a prediction. :shrug:
