He showed much more game than that last night, but you choose to parrot ass clowns who'd rather say something not so clever like "Servebot."

Ass clowns.... again with the personal attacks (and an immature attack at that). I don't see why you care what I think about Isner. It doesn't bother me that you like Isner's game.  Everyone is allowed to point-out what they like or don't like about a player.

That's one thing your find out more & more here (personal attacks & immature)Babblelot is the boards problem.Scott or mod's won't do anything.I've been here on & off from the start of 2007,true tennis fans won't put up with personal attacks Babblelot.I would not log on here last night,Babblelot still uses my name & i've not even made a post last night.I'm out of here,how many must leave T4Y.insults after insults after insults.Some here i wish all the best others i'd reather not say.

Rafito! Several months ago I promised I would pick on Rafa as soon as they got to the American hard courts. Remember? Well, I'm here to eat crow. Rafa, per usual, made the changes I wanted to see. More aggressive, better court position.

:thumbs-up:

I do remember, and I must say, I was rooting for Rafa the whole way, but not even I could have seen this one coming. I knew Rafa was improving his offensive game and shortening points, but winning Montreal and Cincy back to back and going into the USO as the clear favorite? I did NOT predict that!

Rafa is the FIRST to qualify for WTF this year! :D

Tommy already up a break, pretty good math so far.

Monfils is an unprofessional, embarrassing, disgrace. :paper bag:

He's not taking the match serious. He's just trying to make the fans laugh. The only time I've seen this type of behavior is in mixed doubles, when men serve to women and everyone -- players and fans -- l :rofl_2:  because the girls are dodging bombs.

Isner seems a bit put off. Threw down a 139 out wide and followed it with a 138 up the T. Monfils thought both serves were  :rofl_2:

Nothing new it seems  ..-)

He's not funny, at least clowns are sometimes. He's just annoying I guess.

Slices from hell by Tommy who breaks early in the 2nd.

By the way this is Tommy's 16th USO  :gleam:

Lu's got the break back by Tommy's DF.

Super mega long service game Tommy survived 3-3 Lu to serve.
ANd then breaks with an awesome bp! Tommy *4-3.

Tommy gifted another break by DF but regrouped to snatch another one, so he's serving now for 2nd set, *5-4

Haas leads 6-3 6-4, in a very dramatic and mediocre 2nd set. Plenty breaks and silly errors.

Tommy up a break already in 3rd, keep it up!

Seems like Tommy just can't confirm breaks today, plenty of breaks, now Tommy to serve to stay in the set, 6-5*.

TB!
3-3 no mini breaks

Tommy Haas def. Lu 6-3 6-4 7-6(3)

Onto the 3rd round, Youzhny next  :cool:

Rampras doing good. Up 2 sets to 1. Played pretty terrible in the third, but hopefully he'll get back into it. On serve in the 4th so far.

Kudla looks like he came ready to play. Already had 2 break chances in Berdych's first service game. Back to deuce at the moment. Come on, Kudla! Fly that flag!

Rafa is the FIRST to qualify for WTF this year! :D

Ram from being 2 sets up now 2-2  :whistle:

Hopefully he can do it in the decider.

Becker is good so far but choking as usual when matters, he was serving for the 1st set now lost in a TB. 7-6 Nole.

Ram straight up blew it. Made stupid errors to get broken. Then, at 30-30 when Granollers was serving for match, he had an easy overhead to get break point. Instead, he hit it soft right at Granollers and Granollers hit a great passing shot. The point should've been Ram's had he not chickened out, and he would've had a chance to break. VERY disappointing.

Djokovic got the job done, but I'm not too impressed. Becker played well in the first set, had 2 set points but wasn't able to convert and lost it in TB ... then he just disappeared. Again, Djokovic was pretty mediocre but let's say, it's R2 ...

Well I predicted it. It was obvious that Nadal would have to shorten the points more as his career continued.....and if you have seen a Nadal practice session (even in a difficult year like 2009) you notice how flat and powerful his shots are. He has always practiced a lot more aggressively than he played the matches. It was all mental (which Nadal actually said in his Round 2 courtside interview), transferring his practice style to his matchplay style. He broke the barrier in the 5th set of 2013 Roland Garros semi-final, when he hit 22 winners in that set to beat Djokovic. Plus he showed glimpses of it at Indian Wells.

“It is not too far way,” Toni Nadal told The Australian after Nadal collected the 13th major of his career by mowing down Novak Djokovic in an electrifying final of the US Open. “It is getting very, very close for Rafa to be level with Roger or more.”

It's like Alex, sid, and euroka are PMSing. They're all on the same cycle. Late August - early September they go on the rag.

We'll see about that. I wouldn't be surprised if your butt picker loses to Isner or Berdych. As a typical delusional Rafa tard you want to see Murray against Nadal, only because Nadal is a bad match up for Murray.

I didn't want to quote your silly post about Isner btw. It just tells me that you are a young kid who knows very little about tennis.
