re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Oh I wasn't saying it was a bad call, just the nature of the point and the debate about Berdych not being terribly affected in reaching the ball it could have been a turning point had Murray handled it badly, especially since he then lost the replayed point and lost his break advantage.

Think the minute the wind started it was only a matter of time before Murray dominated, he has that versatile approach in his game which allows him to attack/defend/move the ball around and his slice shots were particularly effective in the 2nd set. Compare that to Berdych who is largely relient on the serve and his power game and who lacks that all round game like Murray possesses, and his chances diminished the more the wind played a factor.

Credit to him though for finding his game again in the middle of the 4th set, Murray did well to close it out because anything could have happened had Berdych turned the set around.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

I go away for a few minutes, and come back to see Djokovic a break down.

Come on Ferrer!! I want him to win the whole thing. Be a good upset story.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Djokovic asking for the match to be stopped after he goes a double break down. What a joke.

Big player about to lose the 1st set without any momentum behind them, I sense a rain break coming.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

BOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Watch Djokovic win the set 7-5 after the delay. Hope this delay doesn't kill all of Ferrers momentum, although it probs will.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

It's incredible how these long delays seem to ALWAYS favour the big players. Ferrer should still be able to serve this set out. He isn't some kid with a mediocre ranking. The big loss though is all that momentum he's built up. I'll laugh when there's no tornado now.

Monday Final it seems like again. Schedulers for US Open are pretty embarrassing. They know there's severe weather coming and wait to play both Semis on the big court rather than using Louis Armstrong. Shouldn't be playing Semi's on a Saturday anyway.
