Rosol losing the first set. I thought he would be different player after winning his first title. But he looks the same old. Inconsistent and lack of self belief.

Too bad as usual a lesser player has Nadal on the ropes but chokes...  Nadal just blocking back Darcis serves and letting Darcis implode while serving for the set.

well,well,well.. I spoke to soon and Darcis takes the set...  Won't matter in the long run as he doesn't have the weapons to do it over 3 sets, but interesting development.  Darcis is already huffing and puffing-- shocking some of the conditioning with lesser players... they are still professionals for goodness sakes- hit the courts.

I actually think it helps Nadal to get some tough matches in.. he's lacking grass play... he's got plenty of energy in the tank and can put in more in the veins if he needs it- so a couple of extra sets will just give him more grass play.

Back home now...after a pint and a half of Stella. They don;t serve Grolsch there anymore sadly.

Got to catch up with a bit of work and then back to Nadal Darcis.

Was a good experience.

Glad you had a nice time, Grolsch or not Cool

I've got to go to the gym at 6, so hope to see this finished by then.

Interesting again to see the crowd supporting Nadal's opponent.....how many times I have said that. Nadal divides...he has lots of fans but lots of people who dislike him.

very strange match, only seen it from the beginning of the third, so i can't really say what's going on.
Nadal looks very inmobile but that's what he looked like in the beginning of the clay season too.
Darcis' performance is solid but not special, not Rosol-like

I am not sure about the knees, I reckon he'd last 5 sets if Darcis let down a bit.

Fantastic performance from Darcis, deserved to win. 

BBC should focus more on Darcis and his great result, than Nadal and his body- show some more respect.

I only saw from end of second set and clearly Nadal issue at first was the confidence. What was strange is that teh BBC commentator were talking about his knee but to me it was something different as he prefered to cover more ground to play his FH instead of a straight fwd BH.

Was his BH hurting his knee more than to run around his BH? Doubt it. To me his probem was that he really lacked confidence in his BH.

And at then end he clearly showed some knee issues...but how come it was hurting now more after 2 weeks of rest than after 6 months straight on clay?

Really weird.

When Nadal hits the backhand, he has to plant the left knee into the ground much more firmly, before putting pressure on it while hitting the shot, he generates pressure from there.
On his forehand he generates the pace and pressure from the arm itself.

Anyway I think it's unfair to talk about injury, Darcis should be given fully credit for the win first and foremost.

The funny thing GP is that being there live today I saw the conds so slow that I was convinced Nadal had a great opportunity...but clearly what's killing him is not the pace but the fact that the lower bounce doesn't draw so many UEs like it does on clay.

The taste is probably a bit better than Heineken, and the brace bottle is kinda rock n roll isn't it? Cool

He did not leave RG injured imo. He  outlasted Djoko...what's more to say?
However, he did not show much fighting spirit, from what i saw his will was already broken. It was totally different compared with last year.

I think it is essentially confidence. It's like he knows he has not a game to win on grass...even if he did win it twice.

The thing is even if you look the first rounds at the FO...the players he played coudl have beaten him with a bit more composure....but here on grass those lower ranked players get that extra help.

Very strangely I am in 2 minds aboutg his knees....despite all the information we have.

Yes at time he looked like he was struggling but as you said you he showed no sign 2 weeks ago so how come he suffered today?

Maybe Julia can explain that?

Wimbledon 2013: Day1 Empty Re: Wimbledon 2013: Day1

And Frankly the conds are dead slow.

I was saying earlier how can you explain to have 6 aces between 2 great servers like Hanescu and Federer in 2 sets?

That's ridiculous. The ball looks big and really sound flat when being hit.

It's depressing to see Rosol look whack the ball so hard (I saw him live today from very close by) and yet look pretty easy to handle.

Laugh
but still ruling the veteran competition, right?

I like wheat beer or weissbeer (try "Hoegaarden" with a slice of lemon), especially in the summer. But at home i hardly drink beer, i'll go for a dry white wine instead.
Beer's more for going out to a bar or concert, Heineken is ok for me in those settings.
In France of course: good old mainstream Kronenbourg! You see, i'm not a beer purist Winking
