i don't like Fog, looks a bit arrogant, poor Debonis (can't spell), losing 3 match points ......Yeah, I'm not sure what the deal is with Fognini???
Delbonis had a great run.
I caught some of his match with Verdasco and really like his style of play.
Perhaps he can build on his success this past week ala Janowicz. :fingers crossed:
he is young and inexperience, he should have won the title
do you still miss Sampras? I love him.
He looked pretty cool for 'young and inexperienced'.
Match play at the upper level should fix that in due time.
I do miss Sampras-style tennis.
A player supremely confident in their service.
Willing to move forward when the opportunity arises and sometimes when it doesn't.
Always putting pressure on the opponent to hold, knowing that you'll always hold.
Outstanding put away volleys.
I think Pete was almost as good as Edberg in that department.
I miss JMac & Borg as well.
I just haven't grown that attached to any of the current crop of pros.
I like Nadal's spirit but not his style of play.
Fed is creative and has a great all-around game but is too much of a metro-sexual.
Nole is.....a character, but early on he stalled too much and seemed to be a gamesman.
Andy (not Roddick) has some magic but can be too tentative too often.
Tsonga is a joy to watch, but only on his good days which aren't often enough for me.
Berdych too mentally weak against the top players.
....and the list goes on.
I had very high hopes for Gulbis, Raonic, Querry and a few others.
It appears those aren't going to pan out any time soon.
Am always looking for that glimmer of hope that a brash young lion will enter the arena and punish the ultra conservative players with a solid service and some attacking all-court play.
I shan't be holding my breath whilst I wait though.....
