Watching Sharapova vs Obziler in the Israel-Russia Fed Cup tie now, and wow is the crowd noisy! Rapturous cheering on every serve fault by Maria, tauntingly SCREAMING along with her on every shot etc. Umpire totally unable to silence them haha!

fuck what channel? we need to sign up for the tennis channle, i can't be missing stuff like this

Surmounter, Sunday, 3 February 2008 02:45 (7 years ago) Permalink

I just go to myp2p.eu and check whether anything is available ("Live Sports" tab -> "Tennis" button). Note: playing stuff may in general entail installing various Chinese tv apps (sopcast, tvants, uusee...). That particular tie, however, is on some Israeli sports station showing through Windows Media Player or I guess any other .wmv-showing app.

anatol_merklich, Sunday, 3 February 2008 10:09 (7 years ago) Permalink

How useful it is if you're not using Windows I've no idea. Also, quality unsurprisingly varies wildly; this Israeli broadcast is pretty decent.

Pe'er was double-breadsticked by the Shazbot right now, making it 2-1 to Russia. Elsewhere, France vs China will be decided by the doubles.

he was wearing a saltire cap when he was playing, which doesn't seem desperately unpatriotic to me.

Federer was too busy not thinking about yesterday

Matt, Monday, 3 March 2008 22:05 (7 years ago) Permalink

i was only referring to his disinclination to play davis cup.
and i was kidding about that anyway - i care no more about it than he does.

still, 'unpatriotic' was probably a poor choice of word. well done young man!

Upt0eleven, Monday, 3 March 2008 22:35 (7 years ago) Permalink

It was more the "little shit" that you coupled it with, to be fair.

Anyway, yes, two out of three won against Federer now.

ailsa, Monday, 3 March 2008 22:37 (7 years ago) Permalink

God knows why he'd want to play the Davis Cup. Who else is going to be on the team? I wouldn't want to be winning matches and carrying a team full of useless people in a tournament that has long since lost its cachet and relevance except in the eyes of really, really old tennis commentators.

x-post take umbrage wherever you like it was all meant in jest, apart from the congratulatory bit. internet does not do deadpan.

But I genuinely like Murray. I also agree with the above post. I can't be arsed to even watch Davis Cup so I can't blame him if he's rather not play in it.

He has won about 4-5 career titles before...but yes, its his biggest win

xyzzzz__, Sunday, 3 August 2008 21:45 (6 years ago) Permalink

this is his third title of 2008 alone. by far the biggest though! wish i could've seen it, sounds like a fantastic match, and it's good to see him encroaching on THE TRIVALRY even if i do like nole more (lol the way fed's playing, nadal/djokovic/murray is the real trivalry).

on the WTA, dinara safina has won two big titles in a row! she is the only woman out there who is stepping up to fill the void at the top. jankovic is going to be world no 1 next week, that is embarrassing. the WTA is probably in the worst shape i've ever witnessed.

Oh I know he's won stuff before but not a big tourney. It was a good match. He looks so much fitter and stronger than he was a year or 2 ago.

Herman G. Neuname, Sunday, 3 August 2008 23:53 (6 years ago) Permalink

Nadal will be #1 on 18/8. Can't quite believe Fed's slump post-SW19; loss to Simon, near-loss to Ginepri, loss to Karlovic. Thought he might have at least made a fight of the #1 ranking (his form was fine for 18 of 19 matches in Paris, Halle and London); I had this romantic notion of the baton being passed as Fed beat Nadal at Flushing Meadow (Nadal's points surge taking him past the repeating champ despite the loss). Fed will be lucky to get out of the sixteens in NYC. Does Beijing have any ranking points?

Michael Jones, Monday, 4 August 2008 00:04 (6 years ago) Permalink

yeah, it does. i think a few less than a masters event for the dudes, a few more than a tier ii for the chicas.

GOD that feels ridiculous looking at it! thinking about how much the olympics mean to, like, track&fielders and rowers and the like, and in tennis it's like...a TIER II.

anyway in other news, THIS is the 15-year-old saviour of the WTA who in the past month has taken sets from both serena and sweta, michelle larcher de brito: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kxaLo1riGo&feature=related

she makes sharapova sound like a trappist. seriously i can't believe she hasn't been asked to stop that bullshit yet, or like MURDERED ON COURT by a deafened opponent. that's not a grunt, that's a scream with a sustain pedal on. i'm not sure i'm going to be able to actually watch any of her matches.

Well done Andy!

ailsa, Sunday, 14 June 2009 15:02 (5 years ago) Permalink

Bit of a dull game lit up by a few stunning forehands. Shoddy line calls all day, none of which helped Blake. Well done to Murray on being the first Brit in yonks to win Queen's, which I'm sure won't lead to even more Wimbledon hype.

SB "A Good Story" (onimo), Sunday, 14 June 2009 15:08 (5 years ago) Permalink

I predict Murray will cave under the pressure and be out by round 3.

ailsa, Sunday, 14 June 2009 15:09 (5 years ago) Permalink

he doesn't seem to be the sort to cave under pressure. but a friendly first-week draw would certainly be nice...

didn't watch the Queen's, but watched the Edgbaston SFs (Li d. Sharapova and Rybarikova d. Mirza) and a bit of the final today - Magdalena Rybarikova is a real discovery, such a classic grass-court game! Slices and volleys and good serving! she looks weirdly like Samantha Morton, too. i remember seeing a photo of her from her junior days when she lost some random final - she was posing w/the trophy and seriously looked like she was about to go bowling for columbine. so it was lucky for Edgbaston that she won today!

Haas beat Djokovic in the Halle final this week too.

The weird transatlantification of Murray's pan loaf accent has meant I can't actually hear what he's saying - it's just a series of droning noises that makes my ears stop working.

SB "A Good Story" (onimo), Sunday, 14 June 2009 16:04 (5 years ago) Permalink

pan loaf accent

is that how you talk with your mouth full of bread?

Beth Parker, Sunday, 14 June 2009 16:17 (5 years ago) Permalink

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan_loaf

It was once more expensive and regarded as more fashionable than the then more common plain loaf. Hence, to speak with a pan loafy voice is to speak in a posh or affected manner.

SB "A Good Story" (onimo), Sunday, 14 June 2009 16:19 (5 years ago) Permalink

How on earth does Murray speak with an affected accent?! He just mumbles.

I found that picture of Rybarikova looking like she's ready to go bowling for Columbine after losing the Wimbledon juniors final!

Fortunately today was more to her liking.

wtf federer?! 5-2 up in the final set, somehow fails to serve it out twice and then DFs on match point in the tie-break to give Tsonga the win.

all credit to Jo-W for stepping it up right at the end, but still... that was some breakdown.

Roz, Friday, 14 August 2009 21:25 (5 years ago) Permalink

5-1 up in the third! :o

at the same time I was watching Flavia Pennetta try to choke away her match - she beat Venus in the last round, and winning this would mean a top 10 debut. 6 match points came and went, double faults on at least two of them, but her opponent was Hantuchova so it was OK in the end.

btw, Serena's post-Wimbledon record = QF loss in Stanford to Stosur and 3R loss in Cincinnati to Bammer, who now owns a 2-0 record over her. The Real Number 1!

am endeavouring to pretend the horrific Clijsters comeback isn't happening. never liked her.

yep and suddenly firing aces as well when he hadn't been able to get a good first serve in since like the end of the first set. meanwhile fed's serve just went to pieces after that.

yeah Gavrilova's fun to watch, and even when Ivanovic saved triple MP twice you never felt Dasha would collapse. Her actual talent level is nowhere near as high as her mental strength though, half her shots look like accidental shanks whether they land in or not and her shot selection gives every impression of being completely random

that second set of murray-nadal was maybe the worst set of tennis Nadal has ever played on clay.

on the other hand, murray winning two clay titles out of nowhere is no joke. Clearly something good happening there. IIRC he had never even made a clay final until 2 weeks ago?

also if Kvitova has battled through a 3-set shit-fest from 6-3 3-0 up to win in a tie-break in the third only to lose to god damned Jankovic again I might just have to kill myself. Please, Magda, prevent this.

Petra started last week with 3-set shitfests over Govortsova and Vandeweghe, remember. Though I expect her to lose to CSN in the quarters.

Great to see Goffin with a decent win this year, hopefully that kickstarts him a bit. Though I have no idea wtf Tsonga was thinking tactically in the last four games of the match

lex pretend, Thursday, 14 May 2015 06:48 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

Watching Bouchard/CSN. First set: actually pretty good from Bouchard, ramped it up in the TB. Second set: kind of horrible from both, lots of early breaks, Bouchard choked for the match at 5-4, CSN played a glorious classic clay point to save game point at 6-5* and then Bouchard made two cringeworthy wild errors. Third set!

lex pretend, Thursday, 14 May 2015 11:14 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

CSN is absolutely determined to spurn every chance Bouchard gives her, nonetheless Bouchard has managed to choke for the match three times across two sets now

Then CSN finally won the thing

abcfsk, Saturday, 16 May 2015 12:48 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

I guess the only silver lining for Halep is that she definitely hasn't peaked too early. Bad that she couldn't defend the #2 seed though, I would've liked Serena and Maria in the same half at RG.

CSN with the early break. Have been so impressed with the finishing ability on her FH this year, seems like the biggest improvement in her game to me.

lex pretend, Sunday, 17 May 2015 12:11 (1 week ago) Permalink

Maria ;) An improvement on earlier clay tournaments but mostly only one thing really worked per match. Needs improvement. Working the angles in this match, not enough depth though.

If the winner of FO is Serena or Maria that will be the active player with most clay titles.

his ranking only got into Slam qualy range this week, too late for the entry deadline, but as you say he was offered a WC (as the previous year's boys' champion) (I wonder why the girls' champion Daria Kasatkina didn't get this?! they had to scrape the barrel with French journeywomen and she's healthy and playing the Caserta ITF this week) but anyway, Rublev didn't decline but would have had to lose R1 in Geneva to make RG qualies, and he beat Nieminen...

I was interested in seeing how another WC, Corentin Moutet, did. Youngest player (and only 1999-born) in the ATP top 1000, and apparently quite a character, judging from this report from last week's Bordeaux challenger:

I don't know what/who started it (According to Moutet it's Haase of course) but at 58:30 Moutet shouts Allez on Haase's DF. Then he encourages himself again after another DF. When Haase wins the game he lets out a huge Allez :lol: (59:20). After that before starting his service game Moutet talks to Haase and tells him "shut your mouth you're ranked 90 in the world you're 27 there's nothing to brag about"

I'm super excited about this RG. The combination of expectations, pressure and opportunity that Djokovic has will make for great drama. I think his level of play is actually a little overrated too, Rome was a dip in his level I thought.
