Davydenko is really shining. His unforced errors are so low compared to Verdasco's. I would love to see this be 3-straight set win for Davy.

Beth said...

Holy cow, Davy's 1st serve % is 84 and his % pts won on first serve is 88. Doesn't get much better than that!

Mad Professah said...

Davydenko can play scary error-free tennis on occasion, but he can get blasted off the court. Will meet The Nadal Slayer in the next round of he beats the pulchritudinous Verdasco.

Soderling in the Semis??

Karen said...

Mad, my heart is pounding so hard I cannot even think straight. Someone suggested that once the majors get to the quarters they should reshuffle the draw. I would not mind if the draw were reshuffled right now. OMG I cannot even think straight

vw said...

Davy and Soderling...Davy could do it. H2H pretty even

b said...

C'mon Li Na - Don't let her back in the 3rd set! I need some respite from today's results....


Karen - how would you choose to reshuffle the draw... ie.e. what lineup would you like to see - Murray /Tsonga v Soderling and then Davy v Fed???

Craig Hickman said...

Maria ate a bagel?

b said...

Oh yes Craig, but she hasn't let up on the noise..... actually think she's turned up the volume - it's now 3-2, just hope Na does not choke

Karen said...

I am going to be very honest. The draw I would like to see is everyone retiring and Roger winning - LOL

b said...

wow she almost got cheated on a point - score was 15-15 - Maria double faulted - umpire called "quinze all" and Na went and corrected him and said trente

Craig Hickman said...

I'm happy that Li Na is not standing down. She's all up in Sharapova's face.

I love it.

Karen said...

For the only reason that I am sick to death of the French Open and sick to death of every year seeing Roger holding a plate. Win the darned thing, win another Wimby and then call it a day.

Craig Hickman said...

If Li Na gets to 5-2, she'll win the match on a break of serve. If she doesn't, she'll lose.

Karen said...

where are you guys watching the match

Craig Hickman said...

She has choked. Will she recover.

vw said...

I'm not a fan of Maria but I don't think Li Na can beat Safina and that's what I want to happen.

Craig Hickman said...

Karen, I don't usually do free live streams because they tend to give my computer a virus, but I'm watching this match here.

Craig Hickman said...

It's a Slam. I made an exception.

Craig Hickman said...

Sharapova is getting a massage. At least it's before her own serve for a change.

Karen said...

Thanks Craig, but it does not work for me. This is ridiculous. Why does NBC do this? buy the rights to tournaments and then not show the matches. Why do we have to watch Extra. Who gives a shit about some stupid so-called celebrity? Aah

b said...

vw - are you aware of Safina's record against Maria at RG? I would think Li Na has a better chance, although right now it's not looking like she'll get it....

Craig Hickman said...

Damn, she's loud.

b said...

she choked

pompelmo said...

Yay! Another round for the "shrieking, ugly tennis looking person". That saves my day.

Karen said...

Na Li, you stupid fuc*ing bitch. How the hell could you let her back in the match. You gave her a freaking bagel in the second set and was up a break. What the hell is wrong with these pu**ies in the WTA. Argggh

vw said...

I think Maria will take Cibulkova. I really am not a fan but I do not want Dinara. Hoping for Vika Masha semis or Vika Cibulkova semis.

Karen said...

Pygmy Baby must be coming in his pants right now

vw said...

Pygmy Baby must be coming in his pants right now

LOL Karen, Who is that? Yuri?

Karen said...

Ted Robinson

vw said...

Ted Robinson

ROFLMAO actually Yuri prob. is too.

Karen said...

I am logging off from the computer for a bit. My shoulders are beginning to hurt and I am really tired. Talk to you guys later.

Karen said...

I had to come back as I am watching the match on NBC, and I am sorry, but Robin was playing absolutely awesome tennis. He was hitting the crap out of that ball and he had Nadal pinned behind the baseline. No doubt he may get bounced in the next round, but he was taking it to Nadal.

Mad Professah said...

Arggggh!!

Safina isn't losing to ANYONE this year. She will enjoy beating Masha, if she gets that far.

Craig Hickman said...

Mad, have you gone mad?
