Federer was eliminated in doubles. Glad Sharapova won. Marcos did play well against Murray but Murray was just too good for him. Ferrer got eliminated. Tsonga vs Djoko should epic. Hoping that Tsonga beats him which he is capable of doing that if he plays at his best.

@Calvin Klein, Fed is facing Isner

So it depends which way you look at it. Statistically Zheng was closest, but i never felt she was going to win the match. Shvedova wasn't closest that way, but i feel she posed more of a threat in that 3rd set. Slava did win the 2nd set by breaking Serena more than once, so you knew she was capable of doing it again. Of course, she choked it at the end

My opinion is bias though i admit, but thats my take on it
That does not mean Slava was closer. We are not arguing who played better overall, we are talking about who was closer in beating Serena and it was Zheng tbh. I don't think Slava had a chance in winning the 3rd set.

The 3rd set was even until the end. It came down to a mental battle at the end, and Serena won the mental battle. I may have worded it wrong or something, i don't know. But i felt that Slava could nick the 3rd set, I didn't feel that Zheng could.

Put it this way. Chelsea play Arsenal at football. Chelsea win 2-1, but Arsenal never looked like scoring apart from the goal they scored. The next week, Chelsea play Man City and win 3-1. The scoreline wasn't as close, but City posed more of a threat going forward, and looked more likely to score. Thats the way i saw it.

Obviously, this wasn't the best Serena. The Serena who has been playing since R4 at Wimbledon would beat everyone in womens tennis in straight sets.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

On another topic, yesterday's Sharapova vs Lisicki match was tense, but a mess. A lot of errors from both women. It was another match that came down to a mental battle, and Sharapova won. Lisicki was a break up in the 2nd set but couldn't hold her serve. I don't think Lisicki played as well as she did against Shvedova. I also don't think that Maria played all that well either. But she got ehr wimbledon revenge.

I hope Jo isn't tired, because he's played a lot recently. He won doubles yesterday in 3 sets. I'm glad he got through Lopez in straight sets though. I hope Tsonga turns up today, because he can win this if he does. Allez Jo!!!

She didn't against Radwanska.

Football and Tennis are completely different sports, don't compare them. I seriously don't know how was Slava was more dangerous to Serena than Zheng was. I though Zheng was more dangerous. You are being bias.

Trust me, Federer will not lose to Isner but I have feeling that the match will be really close.

Radwanska went 3 sets because Serena took her foot of the pedal and Radwanska picked her game up. The other 2 sets were Serena's easily. I reckon Serena would beat Radwanska in straight sets if they played today

It's a matter of opinion though isn't it. I watched both matches, and i felt that Slava could win, more than i felt Zheng could win. You think different. Thats fair enough in my book. I didn't think that Slava would win the 3rd set, But i felt that she can more than i did Zheng. Maybe i am being bias. You would be bias towards Federer in a debate involving him. People stick up for there favourites.

But i like a good debate, and a good discussion

As for Federer vs Isner. Isner has got a great serve, so i expect a tie break in the 1st. Still though i reckon Federer will win in a close 2 setter

Yeah I think the best of three sets makes these games more interesting for sure. We've seen Tsonga 2-1 up against Djokovic in a Slam recently. Federer's dropped two sets at Wimbledon a lot of times but I think it's more of a mentality thing really. When you know you're up against it you up your game, but three sets certainly gives the likes of Isner & Tsonga more of a chance today.

Really looking forward to Tsonga/Djokovic today, I think it could go either way. Tsonga has a bit chance of winning, but I still think Djokovic comes through in three. Isner could make things tough for Federer but I dont see him losing to him and Andy Murray seems to be playing well right now. He'll come through this in straight sets.

Who's playing in the other match on Federers side of the draw?

Default Re: Tennis Discussion Thread - (Olympics)

Djokovic beats Tsonga in straight sets 6-1, 7-5.

Tsonga played like shit. Never got going at all.

His plan was to impose a short rally game on the match. It was the smart thing to do but it was poorly executed, especially in the first set. Tsonga missed his FH too much, and the wind didn't help either (but that wasn't much of a factor in the end)
