Guys keep me posted on the scores. I'm at church and that French Open app I  have on my phone is not working so I can't get the scores! I'll depend on you all to keep me posted as I check back here periodically.

i told you all before that djokovic has movement issues on this surface and looks very beatable.......

he has taken his hardcourt game too far and is paying the price for it.......his extremem sliding on hardcourts has affected his movement on clay.......he feels no control during sliding and has serious issues stopping and turning after a slide.......

unless seppi chokes very badly, djokovic is going home.......

Shank, how can you say that most ridiculous of all changes is french open?? the most ridiculous changes have been made at wimbledon..
Ball is bouncing 35-40% HIGHER than 2000, ball is going slower by 15-20%, S&V is a thing of the past for Wimbledon, and so on.. I mean, the tournament with the most tradition in the sport is playing like "green" fast clay...

slowing down wimbledon was somewhat understandable.......grass by its very nature is lively and plays quite fast as it is.......great servers becker, sampras, goran etc were hitting humanly unreturnable serves using old frames and natural gut rackets........with these new rackets and latest strings, it would be almost impossible to return serve if the grass was just as fast.......

i think they have finally found the balance on the surface.......good serves are still rewarded.......roddick with no backhand could make 3 finals on the surface.......players can serve and volley with few tweaks to their game but they just don't choose to.......

on the other hand they sped up french open unnecessarily.......there was no need to change it......french open was fast clay as it is.......now it's like a fast hardcourt.......


 

Tennis is not all about having a backhand, as you mentioned, a big serve, its about making good use of what you have. Explain how a guy like Michael Change won RG by moonballing.
Your recurring theme is really boring....... .............. .............

moonballing was the norm on clay in the 70s and most part of 80s as well.......go watch videos of borg, vilas, wilander and lendl.......they moonballed to win on clay.......

your understanding ability is amazing.......i stressed on roddick's backhand because he wouldn't have survived one day from the baseline in wimbledon if it played as slow as some people think it did.......not that i wanted to say tennis is all about one shot.......we all know what a "genius" baseliner roddick is.......

As for Federer, he is shanking a lot and has just saved 3 break points at 2-3.

Seppi's coming off of two 5 setters.

that's starting to show.......seppi has basically decided to throw away set 4........i am still expecting a good 5th set with either result possible.......

wow. nice hold by Seppi.


Lucky loser Goffin still keeping things real in the 2nd. StarddaGame, I hope Goffin can bring it and not be awed by his idol.
