Rafa: we are both out before the 3rd round.
Roger: let's laugh for 10 minutes.




LOL.. :rofl_2: :rofl_2: :rofl_2:
at this rate, i won't be surprised if there's a final between Tomic & Gulbis..  :confused1: :confused1: :confused1:
TV ratings maybe be affected due to early exits of such top players..
What a Horrible Wednesday !!! :)>>>> :)>>>>

T.V. ratings and T4U traffic drop dramatically as 'player' fans lose interest when their players gets bumped early.

Funny it was Stako who beat Fed. Stako's been so vocal about lower ranked guys' finances and now he upset the biggest name of the game.

Perhaps that provided him with some extra motivation, though I think Fed has been an advocate for lower tier players.

That's normal. Most are fans and care mostly about their players.
 
For me the regular matches aren't interesting unless my player is involved.
 
The top players have the best games.  :king:
 
Some will just watch because it's tennis, not good enough.

Roger has been a leader in this stance all year and mentioned this in his press conference. A reporter said something like "so we need to give the lower ranked players more press?". Roger said "No...more RESPECT". Class answer!

And, even though my favorite loss -- I'm still here!!!!!! There are other great matches to see! To talk about!!!! I'm not going anywhere!!!!! Lol

Raonic is playing utter sh!t, just lost the first set to Sijsling and got broken to love in the second.  :mad1:

Wow this will do wonders for Dimitrov's confidence if he wins this. :whistle:

Soeda-Gasquet are playing a really high quality match. Gasquet leads two sets to one.

I'm out of pocket and can't find the score of the Dimitrov match. What is it now?

Raonic lost. Kudos to Sijsling, he played very well. I'm praying Zemlja def. Sharapov (can't stand him)

Gasquet won !! pretty entertaining match :)
I am dissapointed with raonic..he went down pretty meekly.. :/
Dimitrov's match is stopped due to rain delay..He's serving at 8-9 in the fifth !!

Well, Dimitrov is a fast starter so hopefully he will come back in full flow.

Raonic has been in abysmal form lately in case no one noticed. The new coach is really not doing him any good. The only decent thing was his white outfit. Typically he likes to go for the clownish outfits with crazy patterns and colours.

5th set at 9-8 for Zemlja. Grigor serving to stay in the match after the rain break.  :scared:
