Tipsy blasted 18 winners in the 6-2 set. But his level was bound to drop. And when it did there was nothing between them. Throughout the entire match it was Ferrer, Ferrer, Ferrer!!! Whatever Ferrer did wasn't at all special when compared to Tipsarevic. Like I said, there was nothing between them. The fuss over Ferrer was pretty ridiculous.

Anyone watching Bryans vs Stepanek - Paes?  How is Stepanek not getting called for a foot fault.  His back foot is past the center hash on the deuce side.  He moves it before he hits it but that is still a foot fault.

I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

+1 on that prediction.
Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

I would like to see Murray win this one, but Berdych can be very tough if his gamer is on. Murray better be sharp from the beginning.

NOTE THAT TODAY'S SEMI MAY BE  STARTING EARLY because of an unfavorable weather forecast.

I expect this will introduce chaos into the TV presentations.

It also interferes with my morning game  :mad1:

Joining Scooter out on that limb are ya Free'bird'? :rofl_2:
Gotta roll with the Shankman on this one.
Betting heavy against Berdych unwise is.
Methinks your vision is clouded with rancor from Tomas's dismal of TMF. :whistle:
I hope it's a real dogfight, with Berdman playing his best, and putting Andy (not Roddick) to the test.
May the best man win.

I thought your morning game started at 4:45 a.m.??? :confused1: ;-()
You'd have fit right in with the weekend crew at the club here.
Play started at 6 a.m., but most of us were on the court warming up at 5:30 a.m.
We'd be leaving around 11 a.m. when the country club crew finally rolled onto the courts..... :rofl_2:
