When Nole lost serve in the second set before the rain delay he smashed his racquet into his bench and put a hole into the Perrier ad board.
Now if Andy had done that ... Whistle


OK guys - Inverdale just said play over for the day, and the forecast for tomorrow is rain, so ... Shrug

If Nole can get a win over Nadal here, it will be highly confidence damaging for Nadal which will bring good luck to Murray, but let's see what we have in the stars.

Nadal's a completely different player though. Murray and Djokovic are much more similar, and both are very capable of breaking their opponent's serve. That's why their own serve is so important, and when that's firing the rest of their game normally follows. When they're struggling to hold on to their own serve confidence can sometimes dip and more errors seem to creep in.


Yep. That's exactly right. thumb up

Nadal really ticked off about the conditions. Wants to stop playing (the conditions are the same for both of them) Maybe he feels Nole is in a fight back. He has come out fighting in the fourth set. Do not really care who wins but Nadal not happy because Nole is in with a fighting chance.

I find myself rooting for Sharapova. Not even sure why, maybe just because of her legs. Maybe it's the chance of a career slam. Dunno. But I'd love to see her win this.

Would like to see Wozniacki win a slam one day as well.

You know, I haven't found a guy who supports women's tennis for their tennis. It's always the legs, or the eyes or the butts or the boobs and if nothing else, then it's definitely the nails. So typical. lol

I gather Nadal was complaining earlier about the balls being too wet.
Yes, he was Aileen. When he was given a ball to serve (in the last game played) he wasn't happy with it and threw it in frustration due to its condition and gave the court referee a dagger-look.
When the court referee came onto court at the end of that game (and he'd been hovering about under the eaves for quite some time) Rafa told him they'd already been playing under these conditions for the past hour.  He was well pissed, and I don't blame him.

^^ Yes, but Nole was playing with them as well, so both players had the same disadvantage.

Let's hope Nadal is still ticked off with the conditions if they do play tomorrow.  If he's unsettled Nole could get to him and at 2-1 he has a chance.

Time the FO and the USO got a roof anyway, although I believe one could be installed at RG eventually under their improvement plans.
