Djokovic, Murray On Wimbledon Final Path As Week Two Begins

It’s already been quite an eventful fortnight at Wimbledon. Rafael Nadal showed his vulnerability on Monday. Then Wednesday 7-time champion Roger Federer showed his age.

A spate of other champions and No. 1s fell as well, including Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka and Lleyton Hewitt. But after the week one dust settled the tournament favorites are still alive and well as we begin again on Monday.

After a devastating loss to Nadal in a French Open semifinal thriller, Novak Djokovic has picked himself up nicely coasting to three easy first week wins. And he didn’t have the easiest of draws beating two players in the Top 35.

Djokovic’s likely opponent a week from today, Andy Murray, has been just as good. Playing on his home turf, Murray also hasn’t lost a set nor has he really been pushed.
And with his side of the draw obliterated it’s hard to imagine his recent run on grass – 14 straight – ending in the next few rounds with no player remaining in the Top 20 in his half.

Tomorrow, Murray meets Mikhail Youzhny in what should be another comfortable win. After all, he’s beaten the 31-year-old Russian in both their previous clashes.

For Djokovic, Monday marks the first real marquee test for a top seed in Tommy Haas. The German has been one of the stories of the season remarkably playing some of his best, most inspired tennis at age 35. And he even punked Djokovic earlier this year in Miami. But after gaining revenge in Paris I think on the grass Djokovic is just too strong for the former Wimbledon semifinalist.

Also on a very busy Monday, in what I think is the best match of the day Tomas Berdych faces the embattled Bernard Tomic.

Berdych is a former finalist in 2010 when he turned away both Djokovic and Federer before flaming out to Nadal in the final. They haven’t played before so it will be interesting to watch Berdych blast away at Bernie’s off pace, powerless offerings.

With his dad now barred from entry, maybe Bernard will make good on his talent. If his dizzying array of shots can confound the Czech he’ll have more than a chance, but if his balls drop short it could be a quick match. And that’s what I think will happen.

In other matches, I’ll lean to David Ferrer thumping Ivan Dodig. The Croat has taken advantage of two retirements thus far to reach the 16s but against Ferrer he won’t get a third.

I also like Juan Martin Del Potro to show his knee is healthy in a win over Andreas Seppi. I’ll also take Jerzy Janowicz, Lukas Kubot and Fernando Verdasco who’s suddenly a factor once again.

As for the women’s draw, with Sharapova and Azarenka back home and Venus not entered, the question isn’t whether Serena will win it’s a question of will she lose a set. If she does I think her opponent tomorrow, Sabine Lisicki, could be the one to do it. Armed with one of the best serves in the business, Lisicki can keep it close with anyone.

But it’s still Serena’s event.

ESPN and ESPN2 has complete coverage on Monday. It should be fun!

223 Comments for Djokovic, Murray On Wimbledon Final Path As Week Two Begins

Bada Bing Says:

He’s wearing old Adidas duds in this photo. Have you got any Uniqlo shots?


bstevens Says:

I don’t think Murray-Youzhny will be a cakewalk as the Russian knows how to play on grass. Grass also happens to be the best surface for Haas to challenge Djokovic. If memory serves me right, Haas had beaten Djokovic in their 2 grass court matches in 2009 (Halle, Wimbledon). And look for Tomic to drive Berdych crazy with his funky slices.


jane Says:

Bada Bing, I was at Uniqlo Oxford street in London; unfortunately it was before Nole made his appearance. Good store and nice duds. There are a bunch of youtube videos of Nole’s visit there pre-Wimbledon.


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Keep going Andy,one match at a time,give it your best shot,im sure all of Britain are behind you.


subo Says:

i hope the russian will beat mugsy the doper just like his pal nadal they both need to cheat to win where is tennis and clean up the sport


grendel Says:

“Murray also hasn’t lost a set nor has he really been pushed.”

He was pushed quite a bit in the 3rd set by Robredo. Eventually, Robredo lost focus – it wasn’t as if Murray turned the tables.


Bada Bing Says:

I reckon someday I will get to a Uniqlo store. NYC most likely. I must check out the videos.


RZ Says:

Doubt it will happen, but would love to see Haas win his match so he can get more points for a chance to enter the top 10. Would be so great to see him re-enter the top 10 as a 35 year-old.

Also hoping for victories from Murray and Robson. Have a feeling that Robson’s run ends on Monday, but it’s definitely a winnable match for her.


metan Says:

@ RZ.

Strange things happens in tennis sometimes:-).
I’ll be rooting for Li Na and David Ferer.


Humble Rafa Says:

Mr. British Lady Forehand is looking for an appropriate opportunity to choke.


Humble Rafa Says:

I am already making plans for my next trip to Paris, where real tennis is played.


TennisZod Says:

When Nole win on Paris it become real tennis. Right now it only dust circus tennis. And boring.


Andrew Miller Says:

I agree with Mr. Randall – Murray and Djokovic are on the course. I think pressure’s on Murray but that he should be ready for the final.


Andrew Miller Says:

Also agree on Lisicki – she’s a great player (and she plays with a lot of enthusiasm). Will be interesting to see what Serena does.


Okiegal Says:

Does anyone think Lisicki has a chance against this so very focused Serena??? Lisicki can play good tennis……but if Serena’s on she will be hard to beat. I am looking for a good match, however.


Michael Says:

The interesting match for the day would be between Novak Vs Haas. Although Haas had the better of Novak on Grass courts especially, this time around I feel that Novak will be the winner. I am saying this because he is now a better player on Grass than he was earlier in his career and today he is confidence personified and above all this is a five setter. I expect a tough four setter with two tie breaks atleast. As regards Andy, well after seeing the draw, he would have been downcast but today he is exuberant after his path has been made smooth by the exit of Roger and Rafa and he is in the most comfortable position at the moment. His tough test is yet to come in this Wimbledon. Another match which has aroused interest is the one between Tomic Vs Berdych, and here I expect Tomic to win. Don’t ask me how ? It is just my gut feeling.


Skeezer Says:

Tennis X blog going downhill bigtime. When you have “monikers” talking to each other, I mean, really, is that funny? It was bad enough when posters used multiple monikers to get attention, but now? Pffft!

So degrades the game imo….and all the quality posters post very little anymore…

#badacts
#postingnotwhatitusedtobe
#degradingthegame


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Skeezer i agree i dont know whats happening to this forum anymore,i used to enjoy posting,i find it a bit of a chore these days(sigh).


metan Says:

Tennis x happy chic.

It’s better to have moderator or robot spam, then there’ll be quality tennis discussion otherwise just yeyeye all the time.


Wog boy Says:

Tomic is pretty confident or cocky or both:

“It won’t be easy because Tomas is very strong,” said Tomic. “He hits a big ball. You’ve got to be ready. I think I can use what I have, you know, and really give it to him because I think if I play my tennis, he’s not going to like what I have to offer.”


Possum Says:

Tank Engine: “…because I think if I play my tennis, he’s not going to like what I have to offer.”

No one likes a cocky prick.


Michael Says:

“You go out there and show him that I’m not Roger Federer and I can return his serve and make him play tough volleys. That was my goal today”

Well that is Melzer’s comment in the interview after his match with Stakhovsky. He has been quite blunt and disparaged Roger with such a freaky comment. He needs to be reminded that he has not yet passed the quarter final stage in a major and the person against whom he passed such a comment has won 17 majors in his career and above all had a continuous streak of 36 quarter finals. When he is speaking about such a legend he should be careful. But Melzer has been carefree.


grendel Says:

“No one likes a cocky prick”.

So pretend not to be a cocky prick.

rewrite: no one likes a cocky prick who pretends not to be a cocky prick.

Therefore:

it is at least possible to like someone who makes no bones about being a cocky prick.

My fear:

when this particular cocky prick starts to make inroads on the field, he is going to feel the weight and the pull of respectability.

He will then no longer be an avowed cocky prick.

He will be a cocky prick pretending not to be a cocky prick.


the DA Says:

^ LOL. Touché.

Surprised to see JoJo leading Janowicz already. I’ll take it though.


Wog boy Says:

grendel,

That is homework for me for next seven days.


grendel Says:

Having survived two break points himself, melzer immediately breaks a nervous Janowicz.

Melzer is a cool, accomplished professional, and he is giving a bit of a tennis lesson to Janowicz – a Janowicz out of sorts, slipping twice, no doubt lamenting the Centre Court.

Talking of cocky, few come more cocky than Melzer, who calmly said , apropos his coming match with the Pole, that he usually handles these big servers pretty well. Thus far, he is being proved right.


the DA Says:

I forgot how good Melzer’s ROS is. I remember he bamboozled Raonic in Memphis with his returns.


Wog boy Says:

I was really keen to watch JJ but no luck:( On free to air (channel 7) is Kvitova and on FOXsport is Ferrer. No disrespect, but JJ is far more interesting to watch then the other two.


Polo Says:

You can trust ESPN to make this Wimbledon more boring than it already is. Why not show Janowicz’s match instead on these boring ladies?


Wog boy Says:

Polo,

Join the club.


grendel Says:

Melzer holding easily, Janowicz sometimes easy, sometimes struggling. I like the way janowicz is fighting – nothing much is working for him today, but he keeps pushing in the hope that it will come back. Even so, credit to Melzer. he’s a pro.


Wog boy Says:

Well … Dodig won first set!


the DA Says:

Janowicz takes the 2nd set TB. Melzer went away there. Silly errors.


grendel Says:

Well, Janowicz takes the tiebreak against all the run of play – one moment of inspiration, otherwise a catalogue of errors by Melzer. Talk about the mental game. Janowicz held on grimly despite not playing well, and Melzer eventually crumbled under no pressure at all except that emanating from his own head.

Still, melzer is ever unpredictable, so God knows what’s going to happen next.


grendel Says:

Wog boy, yes I noticed that. Dodig is in a way similar to Ferrer, just as dogged and even less awed by reputation. he has a better grass court game than Ferrer, although Ferrer obviously has the better all round game. Expect a long match!


grendel Says:

For Janowicz’s game to work properly, his serve has got to be on – and it’s not. Mainly the wind, I think. Again, in 3rd, he’s hanging on just to his serve, and Melzer has all to play for – and looks like he knows it, too.


El Flaco Says:

Melzer does like playing against big servers as long as we aren’t talking about Roddick who he is 0-10 against. He is 6-2 combined against Isner and Karlovic whose games are similar to Jerzy.


I Love Tennis Says:

good hold from JJ .. to make it 3 all in 3rd set


the DA Says:

Melzer blowing BP opportunities. I agree that the wind is annoying JJ


El Flaco Says:

The only technical flaw with Jerzy’s serve is he has a high ball toss so he has to wait for it to come down which makes the timing more difficult. Isner’s toss is much better. That’s why he typically serves around 70%. Jerzy was at 50% 1st serves last time I checked. That is unacceptable for a guy 6’8″.


grendel Says:

Janowicz’s last service game had one 1st serve at 95 mph another at 112, fastest 121. Somerthing is wrong with his serving arm, I fear. Melzer is dealing with the serve quite easily, and it is a shadow of its normal power.


I Love Tennis Says:

easy game from Melzer, seems that he is not as affected by the wind as JJ is


El Flaco Says:

Not watching the match Grendel, but Jerzy was wearing a sleeve over his elbow when he played Almagro.


I Love Tennis Says:

JJ breaks … hope can win the 3rd set now


grendel Says:

Janowicz breaks, against run of play. Sheer gutsiness from Jamowicz, flakiness from Melzer – absurd errors, but what it isn’t yet is great tennis.


I Love Tennis Says:

YES … one more set for JJ


grendel Says:

Janowicz takes set. At set point, he played a gorgeous bh round the corner so to speak – very very difficult shot, just shows the man can play when things are going his way.

A triumph of guts, I’d say, this set. Melzer really should have won it.


Wog boy Says:

Serena is mising big time, Lisicki breaks.


Wog boy Says:

Lisicki breaks 0:40 to win 1st set 6:2!


Kimberly Says:

Wow lisicki takes the first with big serve big forehand tennid


tennisfan Says:

Lisicki will beat a French champion again


James Says:

@Wog Boy, thanks for the update!

woohoo!! Go Sabine!! :-)


I Love Tennis Says:

YaY … JJ breaks to lead 3 – 2


grendel Says:

When a player starts waggling his finger in a triumphalist sort of way towards his box, and I don’t want him to win – I hate him. If, however, a player I want to win does it, I look upon the performance with indulgence.

Janowicz just broke.


I Love Tennis Says:

Melzer breaks back, bad service from Janowicz


the DA Says:

I agree Grendel. Melzer breaks back.


grendel Says:

Janowicz had the court at his mercy, but hit the ball short to Melzer who easily dispatched a winner, roared in celebration – obviously angered by Janowicz’s roars – and hasn’t stopped roaring since – having held easily.

Complete momentum switch. Good learning process for Janowicz – how will he deal with it?


grendel Says:

Melzer faced 2 break points but dealt with them with deceptive easy – top class tennis. This man could have been a great player, I feel. Wonder what went wrong. Meanwhile, Janowicz has the fight of his life on.


James Says:

Serena comes back strongly in 2nd set, breaks Lisicki for the second to lead 4-1. C’mon Sabine, take the 3rd set!


the DA Says:

Wow! Melzer was on his way out and now he’s taken the 4th set. Experience vs youth.


James Says:

Meanwhile Li Na dismantled Roberta Vinci 6-2, 6-0! Clinical performance from Li.

Also Ms Robson could be on her way out. I like her but her movement hasn’t improved much. Is serving very well though.


grendel Says:

Set to Melzer. Only goes to show, when you’ve got someone as prickly as Melzer around, you don’t indulge in premature celebrations. it just gets under the man’s skin and galvanizes him.

If we’re going by the tennis, melzer is hot favourite to win now. However, we know that you can’t do just that with Melzer. he is bound to give Janowicz some chances. The point is, will he take them?
Meanwhile, what’s happened to Janowicz’s serve?


Wog boy Says:

Serena intimidates her opponents big time.


James Says:

Serena back to her dominant self. Tough for Ms Lisicki now, but has the game to upset Ms Williams. Go Sabine!


grendel Says:

Janowicz breaks, this time from some fine striking of the ball.
4 games to hold.
But but but.
4 games to be broken in, too.
This 5th set has only just started……


metan Says:

David Ferrer is in the next round as well the Chinese super star Li Na. Good luck guys.


James Says:

Meanwhile Kanepi serving for the match vs Laura Robson. I think Ms Robson goes out here. Good tournament for her. Needs to improve her movement on court if she is to win Wimbledon at some point in career.


James Says:

Adios Ms Robson! Better luck next time.


the DA Says:

It seems to be a bit edgy between Melzer and JJ. Looks like JoJo just yelled something at Jerzy. Tense times.


grendel Says:

Janowicz gives an amazingly feeble and tentative return to a soft 2nd serve – begging to be blitzkrieged – and which would have given him 15-40, possibly serving for match. If Janowicz loses this matcvh, that point should come back to haunt him.


Wog boy Says:

There is one thing I like about Wimbledon spectators and that is respect for the players even if they play against one of them. Kanepi was serving for the match and missed first serve, until then very vocal Laura’s English fans stayed quiet, it was no one single cheer because Kanepi missed first serve in such important moment against their player.
# Respect


I Love Tennis Says:

Can Janowicz hold his serve to win the match? hope so.


I Love Tennis Says:

YES !!!!!!! Happy for Jerzy.


Wog boy Says:

Calm down JJ, you didn’t win Wimbledon, you just beat Meltzer:)


Wog boy Says:

Well, I think JJ is going into SF for sure. He plays his countryman Kubot in QF.


tennisfan Says:

4-4….perfect WTA break fest. Surprised that this is happening in a match involving Serena


grendel Says:

The serve, having behaved erratically all match, came back, a little sheepishly, as Janowicz served it out. 4 perfect serves. This is a measure of the man. He is not afraid to win.

The handshake was genuinely respectful on Janowicz’s part, begrudging I thought from Melzer – who did play the better tennis, on the whole, but to win you have to pull out the stops when it counts. There’s a streak of the spoiled brat about Melzer, a genuinely brilliant tennis player.

After the handshake, Janowicz collapsed to the ground and let out some mighty roars. Partly in celebration but mainly, I think, to release all the emotion. Since celebrating prematurely in the 4th, Janowicz had been very quiet, but he must have been sizzling underneath.

This man is champion material (potentially, I don’t think Andy need worry this tournament) no doubt. Such a breath of fresh air. And I think he will have learnt such a lot from this match.


James Says:

Wow Sabine Lisicki taking the fight to Serena Williams. 4-4 in 3rd set. Go Sabine!!


the DA Says:

Wow, Sabine breaks Serena and will serve for the match! I don’t think this is going to be straightforward.


James Says:

Sabine Lisicki breaks Serena Williams in the 3rd set! 5-4 serving for match!!! You can do this, Sabine!
#futureslamwinner


Daniel Says:

Tense time, Lisi missed a BH on MP, double fault, an ace an another good serve to set another MP.


Daniel Says:

She did it!!!


the DA Says:

She did it! Serena is beaten by Sabine. So happy. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer player.


Humble Rafa Says:

Big Lady is out. Wow.


Wog boy Says:

Good on you Sabine!!


jane Says:

Congrats Sabine!!!!!


James Says:

Sabine Lisicki has done it!!! Beat Serena Williams at Wimbledon. Hope she can make it to the finals.


Ty Says:

@grendel

I agree about Janowicz being potential championship material. He is learning.


tennisfan Says:

Unbelievable, this is one hell of a crazy Wimbledon. Top 3 seeds on the women’s side are all gone


Wog boy Says:

It looks like quite few of us were cheering Sabine:)


Kimmi Says:

WOW! Congrats to Lisicki. Did not see that coming, especially the way serena has been playing.


the DA Says:

@wog boy – Of course we were. Serena has enough trophys in her cabinet. Here’s something mind blowing: either Lisicki, Kanepi, Radwanska, Pironkova, Na, Puig, Sloane, Bartoli, Knapp, Kvitova or Flipkens is going to win Wimbledon.


the DA Says:

^ oops, trophies of course.


James Says:

Sabine Lisicki’s my favorite female player since 2011 when she defeated Li Na at Wimby. Always knew she had the game to beat the best on grass. Happy for her.


Ty Says:

DA

In that case I’ll be pulling for Na or Sloane.


the DA Says:

@Ty – I’m going for Lisicki or Kvitova.


Wog boy Says:

the DA

Not wrong. BTW, I couldn’t watch last two serves, I walked into the kitchen but had the volume up:)


Humble Rafa Says:

I am happy that the umpires and lines people made it out alive after the Big Lady’s loss. I guess she decided not to shove it up someone’s throat this time.


Danny Morris Says:

As a german, and having met sabine personally, I am very happy for her.

Serena shows us clearly why players shouldn’t invest their energies in winning a FO, especially if they have already won it. Hell, Sampras didn’t care a hoot for it even in his prime.

Now, haas – even though you are german, don’t go about beating Djokovic. Not if you are going to do a stakhovsky and lose in the next round. May the better player win this – which is novak. ;)

LLTK:

check your email. where the eff are you? I tried calling you, I forwarded your posts to admins at TT and tennis. I hope something good comes out of this. A guy like you should not be in the mix with ignoramus posters like DA/brando/volley/zod. You deserve to be in a higher power. Please contact.


gannu Says:

What a match Liscki…outstanding…you thoroughly deserved and did the impossible…someone who can match serena serve to serve….easily the best match of this year’s Wimbledon!


James Says:

Li Na, Kvitova or Sabine Lisicki will win it this time. After seeing Na’s performance today I think she’s gonna take this. Hope Sabine can.


James Says:

@gannu, Sabine can serve at 107 mph consistently. In 2011 Wimbledon some female players including Li Na said she was serving like a man.


James Says:

“As a german, and having met sabine personally, I am very happy for her.”

I thought in one of your earlier posts you said you’re asian. Or maybe I’m mistaking you for another poster. Anyway, envy you meeting Sabine in person.


Skeezer Says:

Sabine! Nice win. Cute gal.

Start of another Manic Monday?


the DA Says:

First the Asian sub-continent and now Germany. lol


grendel Says:

James – he did say he was Asian.

I think Sue Barker should be locked up. I taped the Robson match since I was watching Janowicz. But towards the end of first set, Barker’s grim tones suddenly pervade the room, announcing they were changing coverage of the Robson match from BBC1 to BBC2. Unfortunately, smart as modern technology is, it’s not smart enough to react to meaningless interference from presenters sitting on chairs and wanting to be part of the action.

What is the point? What possible point is there in changing channels like that? Did it never occur to this absurd Barker creature that it is now virtually impossible to record anything?

Ridiculous woman.

Oh, well. Looking forward to Berdych/Tomic.


Danny Morris Says:

Serena and Fed, greatest players of last 10 years are out.

They should draw the lots and decide Kvitova/Lisicki as winner and just handover the trophy to Novak/JJ/Delpo/Haas. Anyone else, you should give a big asterisk – it is like rafa winning USopen 2010, sneaking in between Federer/Djokovic era or hewitt winning a wimbledon between Sampras/Federer era.

They should then play a Nole Vs Serena contest, a best of 5 match series to really gauge how well-earned the women’s equal pay really is. LOL! It sounds very convenient that equality of genders only comes up when paychecks are being handed out. A lot like rafa’s injuries [only on hardcourt or grass]. I mean come on, he withdrew from AO, Wimbledon, USO, WTF, Olympics – some of them multiple times. Yet, not a single FO/MC was missed. It just ain’t kosher, I will tell you.


Polo Says:

“They should then play a Nole Vs Serena contest, a best of 5 match series to really gauge how well-earned the women’s equal pay really is…” DM

I agree with that. :-)


grendel Says:

Anyway, now I know Robson has lost. I did watch her attempting to serve for the first set – but she froze. Well, she’s 19. Kanepi is a strong player, and you would expect her to beat Laura. I hope she sticks with Miles McLaghan – she will have better days to come.


TennisZod Says:

Some Asian-German kid want attention but not get it seem.


grendel Says:

I am told I may have maligned Sue Barker – that she is just a yes person, announcing decisions made by faceless bureaucrats residing deep in the bowels of the BBC. I don’t know.


Danny Morris Says:

@James:

You have to stop hanging with low-IQ creatures like DA/Volle/Brando/Zod or any of the forms of that HYDRA!

I am a chinese, who is a german citizen works for a swiss investment bank in the US of A. Please excuse me for not taking DA’s permission when making decisions in my life, because I dont share his negative IQ!

If you have a doubt, give me your email, I will send you my photo, letter from employer, and proof of German citizenship and my US visa.

I could give you my email, but you can understand I don’t want hyenas like da/volley/brando/zod/humble rafa to misuse it.

Who are your picks for the men’s womens.

I am feeling majorly bullish about Novak, JJ and delpotro on men’s and obviously kivtova/lisicki.

I really wish lisicki wins, because she did the whole draw a favour by removing Serena. When you beat Federer/Serena at wimbledon, you just should be given the trophy. I actually would like Novak to beat Federer at wimbledon and win it. It just seems more justified. Beating Rafa at wimbledon? LOL! Just doesn’t do justification to Nole’s great grass-court game.

Like he did at AO, USO or WTF, I would like Nole to establish his Wimbledon dynasty through Roger. There is just a sense of justice when Roger dethrones Sampras and starts his Lordship @ Wimbledon.

I did root for Soderling in both 2009 and 2010 FO. He deserved a FO for his fine efforts. Without a FO, clowns who masquerade as experts will rate Gaudio as a better FO player than Soderling, but soderling being the only guy to beat claydal at french is a greater achievement than Gaudio winning a FO sneaking one in before the Fedal era started lording it at FO/Wimbledon.


gonzalowski Says:

Daniel,
congratulations for Brazil’s victory yesterday!
great match from the Penta, it was like the Bayern-Barça match (Brazil= Bayern) :)

Verdasco wins 2 first sets… come on!


TennisZod Says:

Congratulation to Sabine she play so well today and defeat the big woman in white and pink.
One German win another German lose today. Nole is beat old Haas 3 set.


RZ Says:

Grendel, the decision to switch matches is up to the producers. They are striving for ratings, and will switch over to anything they think will keep the audience’s interest. (This is why in the U.S. they’ll show repeats of Serena rather than a competitive current match).


RZ Says:

It’s a shame Laura lost, especially after leading in the first set. But she’ll learn. And Kanepi tends to do well at Wimbledon and the French.


RZ Says:

I’d be shocked if Haas wins today, but one can dream…


Polo Says:

One thing that US TV producers never learn is that viewers don’t care to watch repeats. And there is nothing less exciting than watching sports reruns.


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

1st Wimbledon QTR final for Fernando whos playing really well,will play either Youzhney or Murray next,most likely and hopefully Murray,Fernando has played very good tennis this tourney,however i cannot see him beating Murray,but i hope for a good match.


Ben Pronin Says:

ESPN is genuinely horrible. They have ADD to the max. On Saturday, instead of sticking to one exciting match (Gasquet-Tomic), they kept flipping to from match to match to match to match. The Keys – Radwanska match was good but they wouldn’t even stay on that for more than 5 minutes. It’s ridiculous. Especially since they love to show repeats, why not show a full match live, then show a repeat all the way through after? I don’t know. It’s ridiculous and unbelievably annoying.


Polo Says:

Is there a twitter account to any of these ESPN tennis commentators so that we can express our collective disgust in the way they are covering Wimbledon? Are they too stupid to realize how stupid they are?


Ben Pronin Says:

They all have one. Gilbert, Fowler, McEnroe, Evert… I follow them. They don’t respond to my tweets though :(


TGIT Says:

The Sean curse continues. Serena out.
How long has it been since so Wimbledon has turned upside down (especially the women’s side)?


the DA Says:

That was an exquisite touch volley by Muzzah just the. Youhzny is playing better and better as the match goes on.


Danny Morris Says:

Polo:

I know you will agree. We fought many a fight against Roddick/Rafa/Djokovic fans [Jane, who has supported everyone except Federer, in the last 10 years, Von who was a roddick fan and Shital Green/duro/sar/stu - Djokovic fans, shital also posted as iamit] in the past – I donot know exact time frame you started posting. Yourself, Skorocel, Tejuz, Grendel, Giner(?), Veno(?), even Ben [was a fedbot then - according to mem and other rafabots.] and a lot of old federer fans.

Continue supporting FEDAL -I gather you do not like Novak’s game? If yes, just watch his Wimbledon 2011, USO 2011, AO 2012, USO semis against roger, WTF 2012, Stan Warinka 2013AO.

There are a bunch of wins over murray, but I don’t think much about him as a tennis player. Yes, he moves well on grass, but so does claydal. Atleast claydal has 2 wimbledons. What has murray done with all the millions the LTA invested? They could have offered claydal those millions [who will play even exhos or halle,2012 with injuries, if given money] and they would have better ROI on those millions [I have made a few million dollars for my clients in finance and they pay me good, but I would have given this advice for free to the LTA].

Looks like everyone except murray fans want Jerzey Janowicz to make the final here.


Ben Pronin Says:

I’m rooting for a Djokovic-Murray final.


Kimberly Says:

The womens draw is really open at this point. If I had to guess, I would take Kvitova or Li but anything can happen for sure.


andrea Says:

great win for sabine. i always liked her game.


grendel Says:

RZ – I understand what you are saying, but I don’t understand the logic of switching from BBC1 to BBC2, especially when we have the red button allowing choice. Surely these ratings hunters must realise that fans will want to record some matches – and their antics make this impossible.


Danny Morris Says:

Polo:

Here is the clue to getting responses from espncommies [works with a lot of celebs], tell them it is your birthday or your dog’s birthday and they might sometime show some love.

if you are like DA/volley, you can claim you are unfortunate to have negative IQ and they might throw a pity tweet like i throw posts at them.

James:

I met a few WTA players at WTA events in dubai/NYC/London – it is a perk for having a client who sponsors WTA. I wish I couldn’t convince their marketing guys to sponsor ATP. I still haven’t met masha/kirilenko/ivanovic/georges/hantuchova!

Verdasco is playing like his 2009AO form. Hope he doesn’t do a choke job against lady forehand, like he did against claydal. He did beat the fanged one in 2009, yes?


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Congrats to Sabine,and what a fighback after been 4 1 down in that 3rd set,she beat Sharapova last year,so she always had the game to trouble the very best,with Serena out the ladies side just blew wide open,of all the ladies left Petra is the only player left with a GS to her name,chances are that some new lady could go on to win her 1st GS,would love Radwanska to do it,very talented but her serve is not that powerfull.


Ben Pronin Says:

It takes a smart person to deduce that someone has a “negative” IQ.


andrea Says:

the draw is so open on the women’s side now. only ni la and kvitova left as past grand slam champions. i wonder who else will step it up now.

not overly disappointed. not to take anything away from her game, the serena blow out finals aren’t that exciting to watch. hopefully we get something more competitive.


Giles Says:

Youzhny playing really well. Looks like he’s going to steal the 2nd set. C’mon Andy!


van orten Says:

it would be great if someone new came up to win this whole thing. it is always tough to see your favourite lose/on this site almost everyone is top 4 prone. but imagine a haas vs youzny final or delpo vs janowizs..wimbledon is very wide open still


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Sorry forgot Li Na also has a GS,as well as Kvitova.


Polo Says:

I have decided not to try to communicate with ESPN and its tennis commentators. It is a losing battle. They are harder to cure than cancer.


the DA Says:

Yes! He gets the break back. Now enough of the walkabout. He needs to be alert because Mikhael has upped his level.


Polo Says:

Ben Pronin Says: “It takes a smart person to deduce that someone has a “negative” IQ.”

It’s not that difficult for me. I consider that anybody who disagrees with me has a “negative” IQ.


grendel Says:

Kimberley, apart from Li Na and Kvitova, cases can be made for Lisicki, Radwanska, Sloane Stephens and even (at a pinch) Kanepi. It’s amazingly open, not just because top seeds are out. Those contenders who are left are either inexperienced, soft ball striker, or utterly unpredictable, even within a single match. That gives the whole thing a bit of spice, a bit of fun. Maybe you wouldn’t want it to be like this every year – but occasionally, why not.


Ty Says:

How does Kvitova still carry that excess around the midsection and win grand slam matches?


Danny Morris Says:

“It’s not that difficult for me. I consider that anybody who disagrees with me has a “negative” IQ.”

Well said Polo. Ben is just confused. He is trying to act like he is some saint – I still remember his posts on Rafa and doping during the Yannick Noah episode.

I am not a “negative IQ” hydra like da/volley to forget what ben said and jump to the murray bandwagon.

Let the Nolandy final happen and we will see the true Nole fans and true murray fans. There will be no hiding behind 2nd favorites. Right Badabing? or should we excuse Jane and her murray support at the expense of a Wimbledon Title and a 0-2 h2h against murray on grass?

Ok, peeples, I am starting to like this game of 2nd favorites. I don’t know who started it, but it makes me feel like a great tennis fan to appreciate both Federer and Nole. Tennis wins when either of them wins. Such great champions and ambassadors for our sport.


Danny Morris Says:

Ty:

Remember nalbandian? It is a myth that you have to be lean and tall like Sampras/Federer/Nole [ideal physique to dominate tennis] to be a good tennis player.

You can still be a good player like fat dave, but cannot dominate ATP for more than a month or 2. Remember nalby wiping the floor with rafa in madrid/paris 2007? rafa won 6/7 games in 4 sets in those two tournaments. Rafa absolutely sucks indoors. I would say even worse than mcenroe on clay.

On the WTA – kvitova and sometimes serena have won even GS with pot bellies, serena even multiple slams ;) Just want to be an equal-gender poster, ladies!


Pitchaboy Says:

Delpotro to win it.


Ty Says:

Of course I remember Nalbandian. Hands and shotmaking to rival Federer, minus the commitment to be great that cemented Fed as who he is.


the DA Says:

Whew! How Andy managed to turn that around I don’t know. The drop shot was audacious (my nerves). Two sets up.

Delpo goes through to face Ferrer.


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Sad for Laura,but it was a tight match,and not a beatdown,so i take alot of postives from the match,Youzny upped his level second set,as Murrays level dropped,but two sets up,so looking good for Murray.


Bada Bing Says:

Danny
It’s fairly obvious already who people support. The Nolandy final, if it happens, won’t change anything.

Now for the Haas match:
Tommy is a graceful, fun player with infinite variety and the classic one-handed BH.

Obviously Tommy probably has no chance to take three from Novak, but he’s still a hell of lot more interesting to watch than players like Verdasco or Ferrer- hideously boring to endure. Tommy at least has infinite variety on his shots and can mix things up if needed.


Ty Says:

I don’t intend to stretch this too awful far, because one should not deal in hypothetical(s); it makes for loads of remorse and endless contemplation. Yet, can’t one wonder if Federer’s greatness would be what it is had Nalbandian met his commitment. Naldy owned Federer for a long time (pre-’God’ fed)(although he did get him at the USO after Fed’s first Wimbledon).

Federer describing his game as “contra” tennis – meaning he was everywhere at every time. He and Safin bowing out the way they did opened up the door for Fed to step through, which by no means is a slight against Roger. He took his opportunity and met it with maximum effort. Just wondering out loud. Waiting on Haas and Djokovic.


Polo Says:

Danny Morris.

I do like Djokovic’s game. I just happen to like Federer’s so much better. I tend to gravitate more towards Djokovic than any other player now that Federer’s career is obviously nearing its end. Interestingly, I don’t feel so disappointed when Federer loses nowadays. Probably because I know his place on the top of the tennis world is very secure.

I have been looking for an upcoming player to replace Federer as my favorite but none appears worthy (although it is starting to appear that Janowicz may be the one). So it will be Djokovic. He is the best I have seen after Federer.


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Murray has always been my second favorite player,not because i dislike Novak,but hes a Brit im a Brit and im half Scottish,so no ulterior motives,some people like more than one player,some people like many different players,and dont specifically have one particular favorite,some people have only one favorite and couldnt care less about the rest of the other players,some people dislike one particular player surely its not a crime,when one person does not like Novak,Rafa,Andy,Roger,do they have to justify their likes or dislikes?


WTF Says:

Since a Brit can’t win Wimbledon (seems like a curse from the tennis gods) I think Nole will romp to the easiest slam win ever.


Polo Says:

Ty said, “…if Federer’s greatness would be what it is had Nalbandian met his commitment.”

I believe Federer’s would not have been affected. It is that other guy who would have suffered.


the DA Says:

Youhzny must have had 15 net cords by now. #luck

Switched over to see Berdy and Bernie underway. Tomic seems to be playing well.


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Ah sweet seeing Ross Hutchins cheering on his best buddy Andy,when you see what hes been going through it rather puts all this silly bickering into perspective,about after all what is supposed to be only a game.


Pitchaboy Says:

People predicted nobody could take three sets off Djokovich last year. Fed took 3/4. Even chance Delpo takes him out SF.


Pitchaboy Says:

Nobody is romping home to anything this year. Serena was thought to be untouchable; she is on a flight back.


Ben Pronin Says:

How does me thinking that Nadal dopes compare to you claiming someone has a negative IQ? Doping is possible, having a negative IQ is not.

I also have no idea what you’re talking about with regards to second favorites. So we’re only allowed to have one favorite and that’s it? Why are you still watching Wimbledon, then? Federer already lost.

“or should we excuse Jane and her murray support at the expense of a Wimbledon Title and a 0-2 h2h against murray on grass?”

Seriously, dude? Are you the fan club police? I’m not rooting for Murray to win but I’m not allowed to be happy for him if he does? I really thought this type of mentality was exclusive to Nadal fanatics, I guess not.

As always, tennis fans are the worst.


the DA Says:

Yes, Andy does it 6-1 in the 3rd. Thank heavens he avoided the scenic route. Verdasco next.

Now for a little Berdy/Bernie while we wait for Nole/Tommy.

@ Ben – well said.


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Pitchaboy agree i think if theres to be a player capable of taking out Nole i think Depo would be the one,if his game is clicking he can trouble the very best,it would all depend on his stamina,trouble is he blows hot and cold too much.


Pitchaboy Says:

Wertheim asked Serena is she wanted her middle name engraved on trophy this year. Where did that get her?


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Cannot see Tommy beating Nole over 5 sets,the best i would hope for would be to at least see a competitive match,i will stick with this one unless it becomes too much of a beatdown.


Pitchaboy Says:

Novak is stepping into a minefield. His so called cakewalk draw is now a nightmare draw. Murray is beating a bunch of nobodys. You could argue Murray will not be match prepped for the final. He will run into a red hot Novak or Delpo.


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Serena showed alot of class after the match at the net congratulating Sabine like that,and in her press conference saying i dont think its a shock as shes a fantastic player with a great serve,very honest interview from Serena.


Margot Says:

@the DA
EEK! Thought Andy had stopped nodding off during matches. Some exquisite shots but a bit too lapsadaizical for me. Verdasco will be way tougher.
Thrilled for Sabine, she is lovely and doesn’t screech- bonus.
@grendel.
Doubt if Sue has any say whatsoever in which matches are show.
Laura’s movement is poor, needs to address that, and another double at a crucial moment,hmm.


the DA Says:

@Margot – Yes, I had just started becoming comfortable. Typical of him to make sure we aren’t TOO complacent. Credit to Youhzny though, he made it tough. I was surprised to read that his wins on grass made him the fourth-best among active players.


Giles Says:

C’mon Haas!!


Polo Says:

Berdych-Tomic looks good. I just wish I were rooting for either one to elevate it from good to exciting.


the DA Says:

Of course the 1st serve % could always be higher – 10% higher.

I saw the Berdy/Bernie TB. It was close, high quality. Tomas had to work hard to pull through that. Tomic looks like a different player, full of self-belief. I might stay there. Nole is already up a double-break.


Ben Pronin Says:

Haas blows several chances to break back and plays probably the worst game I’ve ever seen anyone play. All that was missing was a double fault or 2.


Polo Says:

Does anybody really expect Haas to beat Djokovic in a 5-set match?


volley Says:

“plays probably the worst game I’ve ever seen anyone play”

he is having a nightmare out there.


Bada Bing Says:

Tommy not wasting a lot of energy. That’s good for a 35 year-old.
Pitchaboy: Novak 4-0 over minefield.


Polo Says:

I wonder what Tommy is saving his energy for.


Margot Says:

Cheers the DA, not bad at all…;)
Haas trying too hard at the mo. Needs to reee—lax.


Ben Pronin Says:

Polo, the long haul :D


Bada Bing Says:

6-1 over the grass court specialist.
Yes, Margot. Tommy needs to reee-lax. He doesn’t want anymore profanity warnings.


Colin Says:

Contrary to what Pitchaboy says, I think Murray will be “prepped” for the final (assuming he gets there)and this Youzhny match was excellent prepping.

Regarding Laura Robson, it’s not so much her movement that’s the problem, it’s more a matter of reflexes, of quick reaction to START moving. Is that something you can train for, or are you stuck with the nervous system nature gave you?


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Unless Haas takes his chances,this match will be 6/1,6/1,6/1,agree with Polo no one expects a 35 year old Tommy Haas to beat a red hot Novak Djokovic over 5 sets,but the least we can hope for is a competitive match,so far a big dissapointment,the Tomic/Berdych match is by contrast a great competitive clash.


the DA Says:

Well well. Haas breaks. He was starting to make inroads into Nole’s games.


Bada Bing Says:

Minefield breaks. Nice effort from Tommy.


the DA Says:

Meanwhile, Tomic levels the match on Court. 1.


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Heres hope Haas can level the match.


the DA Says:

37 strokes…on grass!


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Pfft throws the break back typical.


the DA Says:

Haas saves 3 BPs but fails on the 4th. Back on serve.


Polo Says:

I think the Berdych-Tomic match is more interesting. These two have fairly close chances of winning. I just could not imagine Haas beating Djokovic. He may win a few interesting points, but not the match.


the DA Says:

hehe…Tomic is really bewildering Berdy with some of these cat and mouse points.


Polo Says:

I think Berdych may win his match if (big IF) his head does not get unscrewed.


Bada Bing Says:

Tommy had a nice CC slice but Novak got it back for break.


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Agree with Polo the Berd/Tomic match much more interesting as a contest,Tommy cannot sustain more than a few great points together to mount any challenge,i thought he would pinch that set in the second after breaking,when Novak broke back i gave up watching.


Ty Says:

O.K.

I just got back from lunch and caught the first two sets of Djoko-Haas… it’s the first time I’ve seen Djoko live this Wimbledon.

Oh Boy. I have some bad news for the rest of the draw, and by extrapolation the remainder of the Men’s tour. Not only is Djokovic going straight to the trophy, it appears to me he could be the next King of the Lawn. Impeccable tennis. He is untouchable in such a state. Even more terrifying: he doesn’t even seem to be playing above a sustainable level. That man is scary good. Haas can do nothing.


the DA Says:

Just flicked over to see a big oops. Nole fails to serve it out. He still looks too strong. Tommy to serve to stay in the match.


Ty Says:

I hope Berdych gets through; I’d like to see him get a wallop.


Ty Says:

On cue Haas breaks back in the third.

I apologize to the tennis Gods.


Ty Says:

Although it is a bit refreshing to realize that in order to assist in making things happen, all I’m obligated to do is put my confidence in the opposite. This could be a breakthrough on my part. No wonder my life hasn’t gone “on serve” so to speak. I’ve only been wishing in the wrong direction.


the DA Says:

It took 4 MPs but Nole finally finishes it. Almost simultaneously Berdy wins his match and has a look of relief more than anything.


the DA Says:

Well now I’m quite worn out! Nearly 10 hours of continuous tennis. Frazzled.


jane Says:

Phew, dicey at the end there. Nole got distracted. But Tommy gave him all he could handle late in the game; Haas has had a great year.

Tommy won’t break into the top ten after this, or will he? FO QFs & Wim R16? He’s at 13 now. Anyone know?

17 consecutive slam QFs now for Nole. Nice run.

Nole will have to beat 2 top tens in a row to reach final: Berd then winner of Delpo/Ferrer. He’ll have to stay super focused.

Too bad Berd/Tomic was on simultaneously as I’d've really liked to watch that match! Also didn’t see Jerzy’s or Andy’s matches as watched end of Sabine then getting ready.

Happy Canada Day to any other Canucks on here – SG-1 and …anyone? anyone? eh?


Bada Bing Says:

The highly anticipated Wimbledon showdown between the average grass player and the grass court specialist turned out to be entertaining.
I said three tight sets but it turned out to be a breadstick,a tense set and one tight set.


Nina Says:

Awesome display by Novak, I’m so happy to see him playing like it’s 2011 all over again, despite the last few games. I don’t see who can’t stop him.


Nina Says:

And whoever says Nole doesn’t move well on grass… well they don’t know anything about tennis.


Nina Says:

@Ty… Indeed when Nole plays at this level he really seems unbeatable. Only Fed at his very pick can compare. Spectacular last two matches. He’s got the cleanest groundstrokes i’ve ever seen in tennis and the way he paints the lines… oh god.


Nina Says:

peak, sorry


Bada Bing Says:

Nina,
He had a frustrating last few games but many people discount Novak’s grass ability. It’s as if he’s never won.


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Nole looks very good,cannot see anyone except maybe Delpo at his very best stopping him from reaching the final,Fernando has had a great run here,and its great to see him having a great run at GS again,he beat Murray at the AO in 2009,and he was a top 10 player then and pushing Rafa in 5 sets in the semi,so i am wary about that match as maybe he is on a comeback,so Murray will have to be at his best.


Bada Bing Says:

Isn’t Berdych a grass court specialist?


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Bada Bing Berdych beat both Roger and Novak at Wimbledon in 2010,before losing to Rafa in the final,so you could say he has some GC pedigree,however his record against Novak has not been that good since,although he beat Novak at Rome i think some weeks ago,although some people think Novak tanked the match.


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Happy Canada Day Jane :)..


grendel Says:

Agree with those who enjoyed Berdych/Tomic.
Tomic was very close, I thought, and once or twice you could see Berdych looking bewildered. But there’s a tough streak to him now, which was lacking in him through his early to mid twenties, and his self-belief saw him through.

I do believe, though, that Tomic is the genuine article. In a couple of years, he’ll be threatening the very best in semis and finals providing he keeps his head and keeps learning as he should at his age.

margot: “Doubt if Sue has any say whatsoever in which matches are show.
Laura’s movement is poor, needs to address that, and another double at a crucial moment,hmm.”

If you’d kept reading, you’d have seen that I have accepted that it was the administrators who were responsible for the ludicrous switching of matches (it was never a question of which matches were on show, it was this business of swapping matches between BBC1 and BBC2, thereby destroying any chance of recording).

As for Laura’s movement, Colin makes an interesting point, but it has anyway improved and it is a lot better than it was. This is possible. Look at Sharapova, she improved a quite sluggish movement hugely through sheer diligence. As for the double at a crucial moment, goodness me, that is common enough. Actually, Robson’s serve is startlingly more consistent than it was even a couple of months ago. But, of course, there’s a long way to go. She’s 19, for goodness sake. There is every reason to be hopeful about her future.


Skeezer Says:

“17 consecutive slam QFs now for Nole.”

Yes, thats making a statement! ;)


Wog boy Says:

I guees now we have to wait AO to see Tomic playing competitive tennis again.

Haven’t seen neither of two matches. Did Nole dropped his focus towards the end or Haas uped his game, or both. Will have lot to watch when I get back from work, don’t mind;)


Nina Says:

Tomic is the real deal, for sure. Best of the new crop of young players imo.


Wog boy Says:

I will be covinced when I see Tomic putting six months together, not just big stage where he enjoys all the fuss about him.


Tennis x hippy chic Says:

Wogboy agree hes still alot to learn and is still developing as a player,a long way to go yet.


Wog boy Says:

Hi hippy chic,

There is no doubt he has a game to trouble just about anybody, but his atitudeis not the one of pro player. He is young but he has been around for awhile now, playing GS tours for about 4 years, he should learn something by now, but he didn’t or didn’t want to.


Okiegal Says:

Why would the powers that be not let Roger wear tennis shoes with red soles, but was Ok with Serena’s bright red under garment??? If I had been Roger I would have screamed discrimination!!! I was shocked that they called out King Federer for red soles……..give me a break!!!


Sidney Says:

With Serena out, I think Aga Radwanska will win the title. She can handle the remaining women rather easily, I think.


Margot Says:

@grendel
Haven’t forgiven Laura for those double faults at the Olympics, every time she served my heart was in my mouth…and may never…;)
As for movement, not sure about that one. Yes improvement is possible, up to a point but, as Colin suggests is it an innate skill …?
Maria moves fine across the baseline but still seems to be slow coming forward/backwards. She’s so strong she usually absolutely dominates, however.
TBH I much prefer watching Heather, but of course she doesn’t seem to have enough fire power to make top 20.


grendel Says:

margot – Colin was talking about reflexes, not movement across the court, whether laterally or up and down. He may have been referring to a slightly slow reaction Laura had to a Kanepi serve, which immediately put her in a (fatally) defensive position. I don’t know whether this kind of problem can be addressed – my instinct, such as it is, says it probably can.

Heather has as much fire power as Radwanska. Once she has got over the illness, up to her to improve.


James Says:

Laura Robson has good serve and some good shots. But unless she improves her movement across the court, hard to see her winning big tournaments. She’s just 19 and can work on her movement/reflexes. I’ve liked her since she was 16 and would like to see her become a top Slam contender at some point.
