My bet to win it all is on Donald Young!  Has he lost yet???
I say that he lost  0 and 1.  Wow!  I think the USTA needs to rethink it Donal Young strategy on Clay!

What do you think of my new boat?  I had to make some remodeling to it just to get it up to my standards.  Remodeling is very costly you know!  Now I have to figure out how to pay for it!  That the hardest part in buying something!  I am just kidding so; don't reply back with any nasty comments :))

Except for last year, DY has never been a product of the USTA. His parents have molded him into the mediocre punk that he is today. When the USTA gave Harrison a WC to the USO?? He thee a tantrum and went back to his parents.




Tsonga is looking good up a set.

Tsonga has the complete package on display, leads Kohli 6-2, 3-2 on serve. Playing so relaxed I'm guessing he won't be able to maintain it through the week.

I don't see anyone in that bottom half to 'worry' Rafa.

Is it still in a rain delay?  I just woke up! :yawn:

The 'sarcastic' side of me is saying he's telling us he's worried about it "JUST IN CASE" he doesn't do good this clay season...then people can say "well, if it wasn't for his knee.... :whistle: :rofl_2:  But my brain is telling me he's going to be just fine and dominate the clay season like he has in the past.  The ONLY person that can trouble Nadal on clay is Novak.

yes, rain delay since 4.23 local time, now it's 5.25.
Andujar and Del Bonis are playing right now on court 2.
watching a livestream of Court Des Princes right now, quite gloomy, light rain but windy. 
let's hope the delay is soon over. fingers crossed. tomorrrow there's 70% chances of rain.

the spanish media talking about this event like the penultimate stronghold of Nadal, if he loses here, then he has only Roland Garros to defend.

I was under the impression he left the States right away and started practicing. But he only started practicing on Wednesday. I know he's the king of "Lou Holtzing," but I think this very worrisome.

correct, he only started to practise on wednesday, don't know what to expect.
he has a fully shedule starting with Barcelona in 10 days, Madrid and Rome, 3 events in 4 weeks, then a week off and Roland Garros. let's see what happens. the bottom line is that it seems Nole can not lose against Nadal. the last Nadal wins were at the 2010 us open final and the round robin of the Masters Cup. Since then, Nole is 7-0, winning in the finals of IW, Miami,Madrid, Rome, Roland Garros, Wimby and the AO.

Monaco severely injured rolling an ankle. Crying in pain. :(

He's trying to come back but my guess is he'll retire.

that was an ugly fall, he retired while in command of the 3rd set. very sad for Pico! hope it is not a serious injury, it comes when he was playing at a very high level.
