A bit late to start this, but the French Open has been pretty exciting so far. Which players do you love/hate?

I'm pulling for my favorite player, Gael Monfils, to win it all. I think he will upset Federer.

Posted by: DoubleJ Jun 3 2009, 08:32 AM

Monfils is gonna down fed. Of course I have Serena Safina round two for the finals.

I dont really care about numbers. Its either a W or an L, Sharapova said, and I prefer W.


I never get to watch the French Open cause I'm always still in school. D: I haven't even watched tennis on TV since the Olympics, LOL.

Posted by: DoubleJ Jun 3 2009, 08:41 AM

Sharapova got owned and that is sad but she did good at least. Fed has no easy way to this crown with del potro and gael still in it.

Posted by: kryogenjx Jun 3 2009, 08:47 AM

Serena Williams is the Kanye West of women's tennis. Inconsistent, brash and arrogant to the point where you start to hate her, but you can't deny the tremendous amount of success she's had.

I'm surprised Soderling beat Davydenko. I thought him beating Nadal was a fluke, but maybe he is the real deal.

Posted by: DoubleJ Jun 3 2009, 08:49 AM

I think he pushed a few players in one of the slams between wimbledon last year and the french. I know he had one deep run where he took somebody out.

Posted by: kryogenjx Jun 3 2009, 09:55 AM

I didn't see the Davydenko match, but I feel that Soderling used the same strategy against Nadal that Federer used in Madrid. He took a lot of high risk shots that ended up paying off against Nadal, instead of trying to grind it out with him. I don't mean to say that he's been getting lucky, but I'm not yet ready to say that he's the real deal yet.

Posted by: DoubleJ Jun 3 2009, 10:00 AM

Oh no not the real deal, but he definitely belongs in the conversation.

Posted by: kryogenjx Jun 3 2009, 10:05 AM

Dang, Serena just lost. Serena vs Safina would have been a women's match that I actually would want to watch.

Posted by: DoubleJ Jun 3 2009, 10:07 AM

now safina is going to win the title. It really won't mean much though until she goes through a battle tested player in the final.

Posted by: kryogenjx Jun 3 2009, 11:23 AM

lol, I haven't been able to take women's tennis since Henin retired.

Monfils just lost, seems like he lost all his steam after losing the tiebreaker in the first set.

Posted by: Tung Jun 3 2009, 11:30 AM

haha don't f*ck with federer.

gonna get his first french open and tie pete sampras for 14 grand slams OH YEA!

Posted by: Teesa Jun 3 2009, 06:58 PM

YES FEDERER throb.gif

Posted by: kryogenjx Jun 3 2009, 10:27 PM

Yeah, this tourney is Federer's to win. He's beaten JMDP on clay this year, and for the finals, maybe Gonzo could pull the upset, but Fed's looking really confident now.

Posted by: kryogenjx Jun 6 2009, 11:48 AM

lol safina lost

women's tennis is awful

Posted by: Teesa Jun 6 2009, 01:26 PM

^did you get up early and watch it? why is women's tennis awful?

i didn't watch it, but i am definitely getting up early tomorrow and watching federer _smile.gif

Posted by: kryogenjx Jun 7 2009, 10:30 AM

grats fed on career grand slam and 14 slams. now retire so everyone else can have a shot ;) Nice to see Andre Agassi show up too.

also, lol @ the dude that ran onto the court waving a Barca flag at Federer

@Teesa: It wasn't too early on the East coast, around 9 AM I think. Women's tennis is awful because all of the women players are terrible. They're all head cases that cave in under pressure. Look how many #1's there have been in women's tennis recently. And don't even try to say it's because the field is more competitive. They're not all equally good, they're all equally bad. Kuznetsova didn't win that match, Safina lost it. Maybe I'd be less annoyed if ESPN didn't decide to air Serena vs Kuznetsova over Monfils vs Federer. But between the two, there is no comparison between watching men's tennis and women's tennis.

Posted by: Teesa Jun 7 2009, 11:44 AM

YEEEEESSS :)

wtf, that random guy trying to put a hat on federer? security!

i understand what you mean-like when they cave in under pressure-that is so true. i prefer men's tennis too. espn loves the williams sisters. i remember when i wanted to watch a match in the earlier rounds, but they were showing them playing doubles. SO boring.

Actually, I'm pulling for Murray at Wimby. I'm sick of the British commentators overhyping him, so if winning will get them off his dick, then so be it.

I hope Federer doesn't break Sampras' record until he's close to retiring. Having 20 GS titles would be pretty unbreakable.

Posted by: Teesa Jun 11 2009, 12:39 PM

^good call...federer has had problems with murray. but overall, i think federer is a more composed player. but that would be a great matchup to watch at wimbledon.

yeah, but then when we're old and no one else is good enough to beat his record, we can be like haha we were witnesses to that greatness cool.gif lol

federer over djokovic

then federer over roddick

Posted by: DoubleJ Jun 11 2009, 06:48 PM

Well we have to see the draws first. I have a feeling fed won't win at wimbledon this year. I just know that this is the stretch where roddick will put it all together FINALLY!

lol tung, where were you when Federer was getting knocked out of the early rounds at the beginning of the year? Murray has a winning record over Federer, 6-2.

Posted by: Tung Jun 25 2009, 01:35 PM

you mean when federer beat murray for his 13th grand slam at the u.s open back in september?

what federer had to say about murray for this wimbledon

“I always knew that Andy was going to be one of the toughest ones to beat on grass next to Rafa and Djokovic,” said Federer, who opens play on Centre Court today against Yen-Hsun Lu of Taipei. Asked whether Murray is his biggest threat, Federer said: “No.”

LOL you're in denial over his losses. Federer has peaked, there's no getting around that fact.

Read again, I said early at the beginning of THIS year, where Murray beat Federer at Indian Wells and Doha. And when Federer cried like a bitch when he lost the Aussie Open. Yeah, he beat Murray LAST year, but since then, Murray has owned Federer four times, including wins in Madrid and the Masters Cup after Fed's US Open victory over Murray.

I'm still expecting Federer to win Wimbeldon. But no wonder Fed is disrespecting Murray, if Murray wins, he'll overtake Federer as #2. He did the same shit to Djokovic when he was catching up in ranking.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I remember that

Haas lucked out hardcore, he would have been f*cked if not for the suspension of play. Congrats to him though, I actually like his style of play, it's just a shame that he's such a headcase.

It boggles the mind how ESPN prioritizes which match to show. Oh well, at least I can watch Murray against Troicki.

he's going to play hewitt next though and that's pretty scary.

Posted by: kryogenix Jun 29 2009, 06:09 PM

I'm not betting on any upsets in the quarters. Roddick's been owning Hewitt in their past several matches, so I still think Roddick will win, even if it might take more than 3 sets. Karlovic has been serving like a beast, but Federer is too good for that to matter. Murray has Ferrero, but this is on grass and not clay, so I doubt he'll give Murray much trouble. Haas vs Djokovic might be interesting, two head cases.


Posted by: DoubleJ Jun 29 2009, 07:14 PM

Not for nothing...but I could see Karlovic upsetting fed.

Posted by: kryogenix Jun 29 2009, 07:49 PM

Well, I think there will be tiebreakers and Karlovic may take a set or two, but I just don't think Dr. Ivo can serve perfectly for three sets, let alone 5 if it gets that far. Federer can also do more to his second serve than the guys that Karlovic has played with so far, and I don't think he has the return game to break back if Federer can break him due to his size.

But we'll see, maybe Fed will have an off day and Karlovic will serve the match of his life.

Posted by: Sandraaa Jun 30 2009, 05:13 AM

OMG. Verdasco is out. NOOOOOOOOOOOO. Anyway, Fedex is going to beat the shit out of Karlovic. Phew. And GO HEWITT !!!!! What an hell of a comeback. And Murray, WOOHOO.

I just can't stand Djokovic and Safina ... I want them out.

Posted by: Teesa Jul 1 2009, 11:12 AM

^djokovic lost :/

i like safina...but the only reason is that she's safin's sister.

federer won :) andy was down 4-2 to hewitt in the second set, but now it's tied!

edit//

this second set tiebreak is so INTENSE omg

Posted by: kryogenix Jul 1 2009, 12:15 PM

Not to take anything from Haas, since he was playing great (it's always good to see someone doing serve and volley these days), but Djokovic was pathetic. I don't think he has a real shot at being #1. Hopefully Haas vs. Federer will be like their French Open match.

Posted by: Teesa Jul 1 2009, 01:07 PM

ohhh no, it's going to a fifth set

Posted by: Tung Jul 1 2009, 01:36 PM

Don't be so sure of it. Haas had match point on Federer in the French Open, and I feel like he's playing stronger as of late. If anything, serve and volley will work better on grass than it did on clay. It all depends on which Tommy Haas shows up on court.

If I had to pick one men's match to watch, it would be Haas vs Fed. Murray vs Roddick is just gonna be Murray toying with Roddick. Roddick will continually overuse his slice backhand, then once his serve breaks down, he's going to get frustrated and overhit.

On the women's side, I'm rooting for Venus. I detest Serena.

i totally agree with you about his frustration. obviously every player gets frustrated when things aren't going their way, but he always lets it affect his game to the point where nothing works.

Dang Teesa, it must really suck to live in a shitty timezone and not being able to see this live. You're really missing out.

HEY HEY HEY, i got to watch it this morning! i started watching at the end of the first set. haas was hanging around for a while, but wowwww federer.

I HATE ESPN2. OR NBC. i'm watching andy v. andy online. so glad roddick won that first set!

Posted by: kryogenix Jul 3 2009, 12:37 PM

Wow NBC is a piece of shit, why is this on delay? God forbid they miss a day of Martha f*cking Stewart.

Posted by: kryogenix Jul 3 2009, 12:49 PM

Alright Teesa, I'll eat crow tonight. Congrats Roddick, well played semi match. You probably don't stand a chance against Fed, but it would really make my month if you pulled the upset.

lol England

I love how dumb ESPN is. They didn't say hmmm let's put the roddick murray match on broadcast....NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO....They put last years mens final on instead of a live match. BITCHASS NIGGAS

Posted by: Sandraaa Jul 3 2009, 02:54 PM

I wanna give them a little more credit than that... I think NBC had exclusive rights for the match so ESPN couldn't show it.

Posted by: Teesa Jul 3 2009, 04:39 PM

^yep, that's exactly it.

haha we were all thinking the same thing, but i'm so used to seeing the matches online :/ at least sunday will be just fine!

Posted by: kryogenix Jul 5 2009, 09:08 AM

Roddick has been playing some of the best tennis of his life. I can't believe he's actually hitting through his backhands instead of slicing them all the time. And he's varying the speed/location of his serves to keep Fed off balance. Federer still isn't in a groove where he's winning points repeatedly. It's still a long shot, but maybe we can have an American sweep of Wimbeldon.

LET'S GO RODDICK

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

Posted by: Teesa Jul 5 2009, 09:45 AM

i'm still angry about the second set tiebreaker mad.gif

but i still think roddick is on fiiire

edit 1

this 4th set is amazing.

2

OMGGG


Posted by: kryogenix Jul 5 2009, 10:55 AM

I WANNA BELIEVE

Roddick's backhand has been great for the past two matches. I think that's been the key difference... you can see Federer trying to work it to Andy's backhand expecting him to hit one of those week shovel shots back, but Andy has actually hit a few winners from the left wing.

OMG

Soo, I just read all that. LOL. FEDERERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR !!! OMG. I thought the match was NEVER going to end. I was at my dad's with his new family and my family. We were quite a lot and only 2 people were rooting for Roddick. XD I'll admit, Roddick played WONDERFULLY but Fedex's experience got him through. GO FEDEX. The BEST player of all times.

Posted by: Teesa Aug 14 2009, 04:04 PM

watching the rogers cup (haha cleverly titled) and roger just needs to win this set.

and i hope andy can beat djokovic tonight!

Damn, I haven't watched tennis since the L.A. Open. (I kinda had to go since my coach convinced us that we should, but I got box seats anyways so whateverrrr.)

Posted by: Teesa Sep 4 2009, 11:50 PM

^YOU WENT TO THE LA OPEN? ahhhhhh safin did well there! i am so jealous of you tina haha.

Posted by: iDecay Sep 5 2009, 12:01 AM

Yeah! I ended up with 3 sets of tickets for one session, LOL. I had a free one from my coach, lodge seats from my friend's dad who is a rep for the USTA, and box seats from some guy who didn't want them, LOL. Then I got tickets to see Safin vs. Sampras. :D

I AM SO RIDICULOUSLY JEALOUS OF YOU TINA YOU HAVE NO IDEA. really though omg.

today is a lot more competitive. djokovic is having major issues against the american witten :) and federer lost his first set against hewitt!

She's fined $10,000 because of it.

^+$500 for racket abuse lol

"I swear to God I'm f*cking going to take this f*cking ball and shove it down your f*cking throat, you hear that? I swear to God."

anyways, nadal lost :( and the djokovic v. federer was fun to watch! even though he lost, i think djokovic did a great job.

Posted by: Amaranthus Sep 13 2009, 09:53 PM

*Gasp*
Nadal lost? I didn't really want him to win tbh.

Posted by: Teesa Sep 13 2009, 09:59 PM

poor thing had an injury, but del potro was AMAZING. his serves were killer and he was just the better player. don't think he'll beat federer though.

Posted by: Amaranthus Sep 13 2009, 10:01 PM

I want someone other than Federer to win as well.
Like Djokovich.

i love federer telling him not to tell him to be quiet and that he doesn't give a shit.



Posted by: DoubleJ Sep 15 2009, 10:06 AM

Deep down inside I always knew that fed had that bad side to him. You can tell that he knew it was slipping away.

Posted by: Tung Sep 15 2009, 11:34 AM

what bad side? it's call emotions and intensity. everyone has it. he is human after all and people explode every now and then.
