Blake looks like he's going to go for it, live or die.  :king:

I like. Just keep it up, James! Tsonga may cooperate.

Blake's match has been going up and down...James wants it first...then Tsonga....then James...then Tsonga... Or maybe I'll say "no one wants it"!  :rofl_2:  I like James, but he can make you grow old in a heartbeat the way he plays -- all or nothing!  I like Tsonga too (except when he plays Roger) :innocent:  This has been a crazy match.  Some great shots...then some stupid shots! ..-)

I just saw a big piece of Marion Bartoli's left butt cheek, and I liked it!

Is that so wrong???????

Babble - stop perving on chunky women tennis players.
Then we will fight in the shade.

Typical streaky play from both.
I love 'em both too, but pulling for them will turn your hair gray in a hurry! (unless JamesDster!)

It was sweet! but unfortunately, it involved players coming forward to finish, so it wasn't the thinking man's tennis.

Earthquake at the start of play today. I tuned in just minutes after. Would like to see players reaction. TC's Brett Haber got pretty spooked.

I'll bet they replay it sometimes today - if just to get another laugh!  It was pretty funny (his reaction) :rofl_2:

Rafa in his interview still talking about the 25 second rule:

RAFAEL NADAL: Sorry. I cannot support that, because for so many facts in my opinion the rule is wrong. First thing, because the rules go against the great points of tennis.
Because if you see the highlights of the end of the season, I didn't see not one highlight, the best points of the season, I did not see not one ace.
The best points of the season are long rallies and amazing points. With this 25 seconds, you play a long rally and you think you can play another long rally next point? No. So go against the good tennis.
So the guy who really accepted this rule was not very smart, in my opinion. Even if you don't have time for the TV to repeat a good point, and then the referee, I don't know what he's doing on his chair. We can play without referee 100%. The lines on every line, Hawk Eye, now 25 seconds. He don't have to analyze nothing. He just have to put the clock and that's it. Then we can play. Put the clock on court and play without umpire, because it's not necessary anymore because the umpire is not enough good to analyze if the match is being hard, if somebody is losing time, penalize him with a warning.
If both players are going the same way because you are playing a great point and you need to rest 40 seconds after the point, we don't need anymore umpire. That's my feeling. You know what I did? Maybe somebody    maybe nobody did at the ATP, but I went back to my matches, great matches, in Grand Slams, playing long rallies in big tournaments, and when you play like a 30 points, you know, 30 shots rally, 40 shots rally like final of Roland Garros, like final of Australia, like final of any good tournament, you know, how much time we rested?
You have to see the third set of the US Open 2011 against Djokovic, and you tell me if the crowd was very happy about what happened in that set or not, and tell me if with this new rule that can happen again. Please.

Rafa should shut up. Same bloody rule for everyone plus he doesn't need to worry about it at slams because the ITF hasn't applied it yet.

many interesting mtches today: Janowicz/Gasguet, Hewitt/Wawrinka should be fun.
Go Richie.

What are you saying?
They didn't stall for 30-60 seconds between points carefully crafting the next 40 shot rally? :\
