re: Tennis Discussion Thread

She was leading in the 3rd set 3-0 or something and lost 6 games in a row. So typical tbh.

Slava has got talent, but lacks in 2 major areas in sport. Mental, and Consistency. She's a streaky player like Lisicki for example and relies on confidence. RG & Wimbledon was her hot streak last year, but due to her injury in 2011, many (including my self) wrongly thought that her normal level was near the level she showed there. Turns out not to be the case. She might go on another hot streak this year like 2012, but it won't last long.

I managed to watch the Monfils match during College because i had finished my work, and had nothing to do. Good match, and i was glad to see Gael get the win.

Tsonga was too good for Llodra. There's still work to do, but you can see that Jo has made improvements. Some nice points played at the net too.

Del Po was dominant. Hit the ball clean and looked very good out there. Did exactly what was needed of him; A quick win, without trouble or expanding too much energy.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Andy looked like he played well in his first round match, I couldn't catch it though. Sounds like it was straight sets with little fuss which is good, same for Del Potro. I really, really am hopeful for a quarter final clash between the two, could be really great. Although I still think Murray will be too much for Delpo.

I can't believe Serena Williams had an injury scare and still won 6-0, 6-0...insane. As long as it doesn't affect her for any of her other matches I'd be incredibly shocked if she lost a set at all this tournament.

In other news. Great win for Laura Robson, she looked very good out there. Next she has to play Petra Kvitova which is a match she has nothing to lose in, I don't expect her to win but she did take out Li Na and Cljisters at the US...just saying. Watson has a strong shot at making third round though. I expect great things from both.

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

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Oh, and whilst i'm on the topic. What a waste of talent Paire is. Talented player, but horrible mentality, and decides to clown around a lot. If he sorts his head out, he can become a good player. Also, Good to see Daniel Brands win too, he could be a danger to Tomic in the next round.

Murray did what i expected of him, so no shocks. Robson has a good chance against Kvitova as Petra has looked pretty bad as of late. But i Sloane makes it through, then i think Robson will get beat by her in round 3 if she gets past Kvitova.

Serena . Injured, but still delivers a double bagel. It will be a shock if she even loses a set here. Thinking about it, i'm glad Slava avoided getting a beat down from her haha.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Was gonna watch Murray last night and then Eurosport trolled me by showing the warm up on 2 and then switching to 1 once it started. Couldn't be arsed going back downstairs to change the channel after that.

Robson wont beat Kvitova unless she crumbles. Could see it going 3 sets though. Heather should make 3rd round though. Serena "injured" her ankle at the US Open too and it made no difference.

Are they playing the Finals in the Day or Night session this year?

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Night session i think because BBC have advertised both of the finals to start between 8-9am UK time.

I'm not on the Robson bandwagon, but i think she's got a decent shot against Kvitova, due to Kvitova's poor form. Robson would have to play well of course, but i can see her winning that match. I think she'll lose to Stephens though

What the hell you on about? You know how shit it must feel to play Fed in the first round? There was never really any chance he was going to win and he knew it.

What are you talking about? Have you never watched Paire play before the Federer match?

Never said that he would beat Federer. But in the 3rd set, he was clowning around playing trick shots. Yes, Federer was cruising, but Paire gave up in that 3rd set and started playing stupid trick shots. There is always a chance, no matter the situation. Looks at Sampras at Wimbledon 01 (or was it 02) and Nadal last year. And the players they faced weren't as good as Paire. He gave up, simple as. And started clowning around as a result

I've watched Paire before, and he's done this before, so this is not based on one match against Federer. It's a general observation about the guy.

He's got talent, but he needs to start taking it seriously and put his mind in the right place

Yea and if he wins one big match, you'll probably claim he is a top ten player

Why, because i said that about Nishikori?

Are you on a personal mission to disagree with everything i say recently?

On this one, your arguing with me for no reason. You started talking about Paire vs Federer, when my statement wasn't about Paire vs Federer, it was about Paire in general. Just because you may have only watched him once, doesn't mean to say that my opinion on the guy is also based on one match.

And for the record, i don't think Paire is top 10 material. Top 20 maybe, but not top 10.

So unless you disagree with me, and think that Paire is either...

1. Not talented
2. Not a clown

Why are you trying to argue with me?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sharapova on fire so far. Not dropped a game in 2 matches, Impressive stuff.

Looks like we might see the match vs Venus in the 3rd round. Should be good.

King Kei beats Berlocq in straights, so i'm hopeful he can set up a 4th round match against Ferrer in the next round.
