AO Prediction Game - Day1

Post by summerblues on Sun Jan 17, 2016 2:21 pm

1. Djokovic [1] - Chung [33]
2. Tsonga [9] - Baghdatis [33]
3. Kohlschreiber [33] - Nishikori [7]
4. Pospisil [33] - Simon [14]
5. Benneteau [33] - Almagro [33]
6. Klizan [33] - Bautista Agut [24]
7. Estrella Burgos [33] - Brands [33]
8. Lajovic [33] - Querrey [33]

Post by Tenez on Sun Jan 17, 2016 6:17 pm

You have weird friends LS! Winking


Q. Have you had to change any elements of your game specifically for Novak?
ROGER FEDERER: Not really. That was more something that went into the press. I'm always on the lookout for how to play certain players or certain tournaments or about my own game. So Novak might be a small piece of the puzzle, but it wasn't the piece. I'm more focused about my own game than any other player.

Last year I did quite well against Novak. Of course, I got to keep it up. I always believe there's new things you can learn, but there's always sometimes a way of staying motivated, staying hungry. Someone like Ivan can also help do that.

But I can do a lot by myself, but I need my support team to push me the last 1%, 5%, 10%, whatever it is, because I'm not in the same mood every single day.

Q. You called for stricter controls in tennis at the end of last year. There's been a lot of scandals with the Essendon football club and doping. Do you think there needs to be more by authorities or is enough being done?
ROGER FEDERER: Well, important is to keep the game clean. I think tennis has a pretty good image, to be quite honest. I think we should just make sure that remains the case. That's why I'm in favor for more.

But I know you need a lot of money for that, go chase down all the guys all around the world, it's not an easy thing to do. You need the Olympic Federations and all that. It becomes quite complicated.

But I think we're doing well. But there's always more you could do. I'm sure it's going to be more professional in 20 years' time, 50 years' time. It's going to be a different story again. I've seen the change in the last 15 years. It was very loose back in the day. Today it's much more tight, which is good to see.

=====================================
Federer worried about loose anti-doping....I wonder who he has in mind? Seppi?

We agree on like nearly everything away from tennis, really stopping fun angry arguments which is a shame.

Chung - very solid, strong build.

Nole's service motion has changed, hitting faster down on the ball.

Nice & whippy FH swing from Chung.

Nole's spinning his FH more than ever.

Good hold from Chung!

Looks unphased and enjoying competing, you woiuldn't say he's only 19.

Lits of raw power on his shots, not bad at all.

Hi T! diva

He seems to hold centre baseline with ease, no rushing, smart  player.

Just hope he can last at least three sets in this mode.

Chung has clearly the better shots. Djoko holding on thanks to his kegs.

He does, but Nole's beating him with variety arm, draining him with safe ling rallies.
Not able to push bim too much behind the base-line, though.

I really like the ease on Chung's FH.
Shame he lost this long point at thhe start of his service game.
Real shame!

Nole's court coverage is crazy.

Chung able to make Nole run.
Wait another year and he'll be very tough.

So comfortable on the baseline....like he's playing table-tennis.

And breaks back straight away!

There is something very natural about Chung.
He is a very smart player.

Good combo with his ball- striking ease. Just lacking stamina atm.

mmmhhh not convinced.

He is just too young but really impressive to see that he 19yo is already toe to toe with peak Djoko. In a year time it will be very different.

And there goes the first set...too quickly in a way.

Chung needs to cut out a few shots from his average point, just not sure how this court.

Will be interesting to see if Fed moves in at all later today.
