Now you know why I stopped doing it...at one stage I had to add scores for 11 people. And that included deciphering LS's anagrams!
In the end I was really grateful when people skipped the day or two....which is why I gave you a break for two days Winking

I know it is a pain. I don;t mind the spelling, deciphering, though I agree could be tricky...but the listing is key. It might be possible to use the tables.......unfortuantely not sure how.

But at least up to down is much easier to handle.

There is a serious dog-fight going on in RLA.  Simon is not going away.. not easily even against Djokovic..

2nd set to Simon... well played.. saved a ton of BPs.. Djokovic missing a lot of points with silly errors... I mean that's what actually allowed Simon to play his game..

But for the effort, Simon deserved the 2nd set..

Simon's return games have been poor.. Djokovic has been holding very comfortably.. on the contrast.. every service game is a struggle for Simon.. but he is managing to survive.. doing good to fend Djokovic away despite very weak serving..

Allez simon..

Just started to watch. Simon coudl have broken Djoko early in that 4th set.

So Rotla, do you appreciate Simon's game better or is it that you want Djoko to lose badly? Winking

Simon is to Djoko what Djoko is to everybody else.....but Simon does it with much smoother shots....though not as mobile and consistent due to flatter hitting.

This has been a good game from Simon. He plays within himself and knows his abilities. He doesn't have an any big weapons, but his resilience is 2nd to none. That is also a major factor in tennis.

But we both will admit that Simon is helped by some of the poor play from Djokovic. That how it works for Simon. Else he never has a match on his own terms.

and he does it at the 4th attempt. 2 sets all.

Simon is nackered.....but Djoko's constant dropshotting could give clues he might be too.

I think the poor play, from what I saw, is due to Simon's longer rallies. Since Djko is not a great attacking player he is forced into those rallies...and as teh match goes on, he loses his ability to shorten rallies.

Against everybody else, Djko's opponents are forced to finish teh point early...not Simon. He is resilient as you say.

Yep...but at least Simon took some energy away from him. Very unlucky to lose that game from 40/0 up. Berds in trouble.

Yeah, I quite like Rad. She has a proper women game.

Not sure what happens...was disappointed to see Bencic lose to Sharapova.....but this one served 25 aces or so....was incredible.

Rad lost that match in her head. Really poor performance. She served for the first set and lost that set.....and then was 2 up in the 3rd and lost 5 games in a row.

Friedman???  Laugh Laugh  Her name is Friedsam

And yeah, from Nadal's school of gamesmanship..Breaking the momentum and gain some composure. Umpire shouldn't allow it or just as you said.. buy a Timeout.. pay a game and take the MTO... 

I'm sure no. of MTOs would reduce by more than 90% if this rule in implied.
