Hi all other tennis fans alike, i'm new and clueless and am absolutely thrilled to join in a tennis forum. Stumbled upon here while searching for that elusive Djokovic vs Stepenak match in the 2nd round of the US open 2007. (Does any kind soul happen to have that video by chance?) I'm kind of hoping against hope that there would be a repeat telecast on cabletv for that match before the US Open '08. It was 'THE' match that converted me to a Djokovic fan. I've never seen such a spirited match before (even after 4hrs of intensive play)... and boy ain't the score crazily 'matched-up'.. 6-7, 7-6, 5-7, 7-5, 7-6... I'm won over by Nole's relentless energy and amazing shots. (but of course I'm sure there must be other nail-biting matches that I've missed.. does anyone have recommended 'must-watch' matches?)
I apologise for rattling away.. esp if you're a non-Djokovic fan. Am too excited, with aussie open drawing close and all...
Not many of my friends are as enthused about the game as I am. I may not play the sport but I'm a huge huge fan of it (and the players of course, particularly Novak Djokovic and Justine Henin), Am thinking of picking up the sport sometime in the future though. So I suppose I could pick up some tips and tricks here. Is there a discussion topic/thread that I can go to and coo about players and games?
Would be great to know that I'm not alone in this.
(P.S: I'll probably offend some other fans here.. but I'm still have to say this.. pray pray, let Djokovic win at least one major this year!
