    I watched the match between djokovic French Open
    2012.You played so good. Just perfect. I thought you were going to win for you deserved it. I just knew it was your time. I think you got over excited as well as I did. But you did real well and let no one tell you no differ you are just as good or better as the top four.Keep up the good work it will pay off soon. I did not watch the fifth set.

    I saw Jo Wilfred for the first time during Wimbledon 2011 and was blown away by his talent. He is the most amazingly natural player there has been around for years and he seems to be going from strength to strength - not only is he talented but he such a nice person as well -

    Another arrogant player. (It's "all about me" ala Serena Williams). Give me a Federrer or Sampras or especially an Agassi any day.

    He is a new guy.He got power and a whole lot of musscles.More built than a whole lot of skinney guys on the tour.All he need is a little bit of more training and I think one day he is going to
    hit so hard that the ball spread open.
