But seriously, Dolgo can do it. He has that clean flat game perfect for 1st week on grass. Same goes for Sijsling who's more S&V oriented and Dodig who has nice offensive game on grass.

Anderson serving for the 1st set against Berdych.

I'm watching Nishikori in the 5th set against Seppi.

Janowicz

Receiving points won   41 of 107 = 38 %


Is that good??? Not that he has to be good in this section to sleepwalk into the semis.

He's move up the rankings & he volleys well,if he is in the SF he could be tough to beat.Janowicz should make the SF,i hope Murray will be waiting their.


Lollipop prediction:
Murray is going to crush this dute. Too many holes in his game.

sid, how about Laura Robson! I dig her. Apparently, Stephens is 3rd favorite to win behind Serena and Kvitova. Unfortunately, Laura is stuck in Serena's half. I'd make her my 3rd pick if she were in Kvitova's half.   ;-()

It is really simple. If Murray is able to handle his serve and make rally more than 3 shots. Murray is going to win. If he can't, Jerzy will have chance. It is the 1st benchmark. If Murray is able to hit through Jerzy backhand. He is going to win. It is the 2nd benchmark.


You missed a big hole in Jerzy's game. Under pressure, he makes really dumb decisions.
Surely, that is third benchmark.

I am little bummed over Tomic losing the 2nd while he had 4 set points in the previous game. He played with some really close margin and I wish he was a bit more cautious.

Gulbis I thought was mentally spent after his win over Tsogna. I know Tsonga retired in the 4th but he was in a losing position and I never like it when players retire when they are losing.

yeah, it looks like nobody cares about Ferrer. I just can't warm up to his game style.

 
I really like the guy personally.
 
He works so hard on and off the court, doesn't really say too much or start trouble.
But he is relatively ignored, can beat most players under him but has a terrible time with the top players.
 
 
He should get some appreciation if only for the way he tries his best on the court.
 
And he likes dogs!!!!!!!!!   :king:
 



Love that dog. SO cute. But that's about all I like. Some women, some Brits as in really find Ferrer attractive. I never get it.

Berdych survives from 0-30 down and takes the 2nd set. We are now 1 set a piece. I suspect Anderson's run stops here.

I don't like Anderson despite being a product of the University of Illinois.

I have nothing against player retiring in losing positions if playing could make the injury worse. That was the case with Jo on Wednesday.

But another thing is if a player retires only because he's in a losing position or retires when the opponent is serving for the match, like Tipsarevic did some years ago in a grass 250 final against Seppi.
