Wow -- what is going on today in tennis!!! Come on Roger. Is he "off" or is his opponent just "on"?

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.

federer hasn't had a single break point in the match so far......certainly no nerves on the serve till now.......

As long as he can cope a five setter,  I think he has a good chance. But seriously how is making those shots with his skinny arms????

Come on! He can become a big threat for all players if he can injure free, keep this level and continue improving his own game.

Looks like kid ran out of steam. But honestly, good call on the Davydenko comparison, his serve on the ad court even looks just like Davydenko's! And he's so freaking skinny! His arms are like twigs.  I want to see more of him though!

Fed's just toying with him now, drop shots and all.

For Djokovic, a fifth setter in the fourth round is always a good thing and probably a good omen.

Crap for you but a cake for the rest....

Monaco can do more damage than you think. I say Monaco takes a set, but winning it is a bit of a stretch. But I think Murray can give Nadal some tough volleys.

monaco can do nothing.......he will come just to shake hands with nadal at the net.......that is the way it is at the french open........it is not that easy to take a set off nadal at the french open when he is playing well and has no fitness issues.......he is unstoppable.......
