re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Oh! It's gotten a little more interesting!

This match has actuually been a carbon copy of the Djokovic/Berdych match from earlier, we just need it to go to a tiebreak, Tsonga to have three set points and lose them all making Murray the winner in two...

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

5-5 atm. Tsonga upped his game a for a little bit. Now he's under pressure to hold here. At least take it to a tiebreak Jo

Murray def. Tsonga 6-2,7-6.

Tsonga was bad. Murray was okay. Tsonga did all that hard work to get himself back in the 2nd set, and then threw it away in the tiebreak.



Gotta love Juan.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Really disappointed with his overall performance. But he was in a very difficult group, still only won 1 set in 3 matches.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

What would be wrong with supporting Murray just because he's British? Especially given Britain's track record in Tennis over the past century. It's nice to see one of our own doing well and supporting them just because of that if nothing else. I wouldn't call myself a supporter or hater of any Tennis Player tbh. I enjoy watching some players more than others. This notion that Murray is a terrible player to watch is kinda baffling give his shot making ability and the rallies his defensive skills produce.

Dull match. Both players knew there was nothing to play for after the 1st set. Tsonga is god awful when he's off like that. Be nice if adding a coach to his game gets the best back out of him and has him knocking on the door of the top 4 again. The game kinda needs one of those guys like him, Del Potro and Berdych to really step up and have success in the majors. Especially now with Federer nearing the end of his era of dominance and question marks about how Rafa will be physically when he comes back.

Where you expecting more from him? I mean he was in a pretty bad form coming into this tournament.
I was expecting him to do like this tbh. Still not as a bad Tipsaveric.

Tbh I would prefer Federer to be 2nd than 1st, would rather him face Djokovic than Murray tbh. Last time Federer has faced Djokovic he has beaten him while Murray has owned him. I just think that Federer would have a bigger chance in beating Djokovic than Murray.

Tommorow, Federer in 3 and Ferrer in 2.

TBH, i was ranting a little bit because i put "Allez Jo!!" and "Come on Tsonga!!" on Facebook, and a load of people started having a go at me, saying that i should be supporting Murray just because he's British, and all that.

I'm not patriotic at all really. I don't even support the England football team (In fact i want them to lose every game. Can't do with their style of football, and it's full of over-rated players). I'm not a big fan of the way Murray likes to play tennis, therefore i don't support him. He's too passive for my liking, and ends up feeding of UE's most of the time. He can play good aggressive tennis, but decides not to at times.

Nadal only got 1 voter (Samoon) i think. Federer appeared on everyones list i think. Ferrer appeared on a lot of lists, but was low down in every one of them. Del Potro appeared on most of them too. I suprised to see Safin so high

As for today, i don't expect Federer to be at 100%. I think he may want to conserve himself for the semi finals tomorrow. I don't think he'll tank, i just think he won't give 100%. Juan will be giving 100% because if he loses, he's out. So i think JMDP will win today, even with his poor record against Federer.

I expect Ferrer to beat Tipsarevic.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Really pissed off Fed/Del Potro is on the early start today. I'm going to Ewood and I'll miss it unless it's on in the Navi' beforehand, and I won't catch much off it as I sup my Guinness.

It's a tough one to call. All depends on how much Federer wants to win. I don't think he'll relish playing Murray or Novak tbh but he has to regardless of he finishes top or second. He's not the kind of guy to tank and I don't think he will try a whole lot less. You might just not see him running that little extra when he needs to. It's all irrelevant anyway really because Ferrer's going to wear Tipsarevic like a hat.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

If Del Potro wins, he's through. If Del Potro wins in 2, then Del Potro finishes top ahead of Federer. If Del Po wins in 3, Federer finishes top with Del Potro in 2nd. If Del Po loses and Ferrer wins, then Ferrer goes through. If both Ferrer and Del Po lose, then ti depends on how many sets they lose by.

A lot riding on this match between Federer & Del Potro.
