It looks like there is no problem to Federer's back. But, no body know the true.

Why is Rogers's opponent wearing different color socks?

This Russian opponent is really ranking at 180+?

Well, this looks more like a practice match.
He, and thus his back, don't get tested at all.

His serve appears to be OK. But then, that dude is a bad returner.

BrokenBackerer is serving well at the moment.
Then we will fight in the shade.

But the real news is that Del Potro is back, winning a fairly tough 4 setter. The serve, high toss and all, is back with all its former force but the former devastating forehand is not. In the old days, it was fatal to get into a baseline rally with  Del P. This time, the rallies would go on and on and would usually be won by Sela.  But, it is great to see JMDP back on the court again.

I watched only the Del Potro match in its entirety last night. I had seen little of him since the AO last year and it was splendid to see the old form back again once he got warmed up. One doesn't really appreciate the power of that forehand until it is seen live. It is truly awesome  :scared: . Let's hope he goes far.

DelPo doesn't seem to trust his forhand, he hits it hard only once in awhile.
When he does the other player hardly moves.
Maybe in a few rounds he can up his pace.  :scared:

I was especially pleased that he was winning most of the long rallies last night which, along with the serve, are a core feature of his game. Mannorino was much more tricky at the net when he was given the chance. It was a fun match to watch.

verdasco stops thinking the moment he finds himself in a winning position......i am not surprised with that result.......

rafa looked good, that backhand already looks so much better compared to what it was two months ago.......i am not reading too much into that monfils loss, rafa just experimented in that warm up tournament and monfils was having a field day.......the only concern is his knee which he said clicked a little when he sat down in a chair.......

Marian Vajda to Novak Djokovic, "I saw you beat that man like I never saw no man get beat before, and the man KEPT COMING AFTER YOU! Now we don't need no man like that in our lives."

i demand french open to be renamed RAFAEL GARROS

No your English is good, its just the little things like the apostrophe and some prepositions that makes one feel its from google.

I think you'll find that "its" in your sentence should have been "it's".  Which translator do you use?

As for the tennis, my plans to watch tennis amounted to the first set of the Del Potro match last night, and the first set of Federer's match this morning!!  I'm glad JMDP pulled it back & got through.  I'd like to see him do well here. No surprises to see Federer & Nadal through in straights. Pleased to see my picks of Dolgopolov, Young, Dimitrov, Wawrinka get through too. And wonder of wonders! Nalbandian actually got to the 2nd round! But the story of the first round is, for me, Tomic getting through after that 5 setter with Vardasco. Well done to him! The youngster seems to be living up to his promise nicely so far. Hope he continues to do so. Poor Davydenko just can't seem to hack it any more.

Tomorrow looks interesting too. It's a pity that Harrison has to face Murray - and make an early exit. I can't see him winning this match. Djokovic, Ferrer &  Tsonga  should also get through comfortably. I hope Gasquet keeps his wits about him, & that Nishikori, Raonic  & Gulbis do it too.  The Haase / Roddick match could be fun if they both play well.  I hope I can watch more than a set of a match here & there for the second day's play! 

Here is the schedule for day two:

Yeah, Verdasco is scarred. He seems to lose heart now rather easily, not a fighter. And he doesn't seem to believe he can win.

Tomic turned a lot of the locals into believers with that win. His odds to win outright shot up from 66/1 to 47.57 and he moved ahead of Ferrer.  :laugh-bounce:

And even after Del Potro's win, Tsonga (#5 favorite) and Del Potro (#6 favorite) have switched spots.
