Is there no way to watch live tennis on ESPN3.com this morning?  And the FO site has nothing?

Any good live feeds out there?

Nadal/Fognini next. Yum. I expect Fognini to take a set here as well.


4 sets will do the clay warrior good but it may not happen.


he will continue to struggle a little but still fog really cant hurt him. at least I don't see it.

I just don't see Isner winning today at all. Not only Haas is a very good player but also Isner is not known for his stamina. The big guy tends to lose it after a long match. I'll be surprised if he takes a set off Haas.

Fognini is relatively fresh at the point and of course can play on clay. He'll pick up at least from the 2nd set after he gets past the jitterbug in the 1st.

Isner can go for 70+ games if he has to.  :)

There are so many matches to see!  It's great to be spoilt for choice!  Gasquet / Davydenko going with serve.  Youzgny up a break in the second set.

Thus far, Isner seems fine. I'd like to see Haas win it too - he has such a beautiful game.

Fognini under pressure on serve  in the 4th game.

Yep, I was hoping they would offset some of these matches.  :dunno:

It's just the 1st set so Isner should be fine. Once Haas gets the 1st set, Isner may find the match long to win it.

What's going on with Tipsy? He seems bothered by a fan or something.

Fognini breaks Nadal in the 5th game.  Some excellent point construction by him. But it' very early days & Nadal will be wanting to break straight back.

It's always tough to hold after a good break as in against a top player. Typically players are over the moon and not in the moment and top players use that moment to get the break back.

Beautiful point by Fognini to hold his serve. 4-2 Fognini.

I agree.  I'm trying to watch different matches & missing chunks of most!!  Trying to be sensible and concentrating on one match is beyond my capacity, it seems!    :)

Fognini held serve.  I like his demeanour thus far, he seems quite serene out there.  Nadal will no doubt soon put the cat amongst the pidgeons! 

Tipsarevic has been grumbling about something for most of the second set, shouting at the umpire at one stage & generally looking fed up with something - I think he is annoyed with line calls he didn't like.

Gasquet trying to break Davydenko for the set.
