Why did I put my joker on an immature teenager more worried about his haircut than his tennis?

I feel like I'm doing a Smy now with giving out this bit of information to competition Winking

MELBOURNE, Australia -- Milos Raonic's sculpted hair is a source of conversation around the tennis tours. It's so famous, in fact, it even has its own spoof Twitter accounts -- @milosraonichair and @Milos--Hair.
And his fellow Canadian, Eugenie Bouchard, has had enough.
Asked about his latest haircut following her first-round win at the Australian Open, Bouchard took aim at Raonic's obsession with styling.
"I made fun of his hair last year. I don't know how it's different now. I just think he spends way too much time worrying about his hair."
More than her?
"Clearly," she deadpanned.

Seppi it trying with his FH though...

This looks a bit like that marathon Isner-Mahut match minus the crowd noise.
Clutch serving and not much else.

Very sad for Seppi, but also happy for Kyrgi, good to see a young player keep his nerve in such pressured situation.

aaaaand.......GUTTED FOR MY SCORES TODAY!!!! Wah

Shame he lost. Didn't see any of it.
How did he play?


How did Murray play?
Did he attack?
How far behind the baseline was he during the match?

And how about his amazing volleying skills?

Dimi for large swathes of sets played fantastic tennis, outplaying Murray.
Murray was sharp and played smart but hyperbolic commentary made it seem as if he can win the thing. 
Essentially Dimi choked and threw it away. Murray was aggressive but even then he had to rely a lot on Dimi misfiring. 
He was closer to the baseline than I've seen him for a while. When he came in he volleyed very well but that was rare to see him volley.

You summed it up. Dimi really chokes on important moments. Last year too he choked on a sitting winner in the 3rd set TB to go 2-1 sets up against Nadal by hitting it out.

I'm glad he was on the base-line, last time I saw him he was 4m behind lassoing the FH a la early Nadal.

I assume they played many long rallies.

Who scraped and scrambled more Murray or Dimi?

Did Dimi run out of steam?
I feel for him with his SBH, I just think isn't good enough for today's physical tennis.

I don't think Dimi is a choker.
He destroyed Murray in Wimbledon last year.

nitb, I got too late to make my predictions. Can I make it now? I've seen all results. But maybe you can give me this freebie. I promise I'll go with what I usually would have if I hadn't seen the results. After so many years, you all must know who all I'll pick.

1. Berdych
2. Anderson
3. Dimi
4. Kyrgios
5. Julia Goerges
6. Halep
7. Bouchard
8. Sharapova.

Murray was sharp and played smart but hyperbolic commentary made it seem as if he can win the thing. 
Essentially Dimi choked and threw it away. Murray was aggressive but even then he had to rely a lot on Dimi misfiring. 
He was closer to the baseline than I've seen him for a while. When he came in he volleyed very well but that was rare to see him volley.

You summed it up. Dimi really chokes on important moments. Last year too he choked on a sitting winner in the 3rd set TB to go 2-1 sets up against Nadal by hitting it out.

I don't think Dimi is a choker.
He destroyed Murray in Wimbledon last year.

Unless he stops loses matches from advantage positions, he for me will remain a choker. He might have done well at last wimbledon, maybe 1-2 more times. But what he does most of the times is choke. He got himself broken serving for the 4th set, Murray did nothing special. Even the 1st set he shouldn't have lost.

I don't have a problem, maybe everyone can have an opportunity for late picks once during a game if they are unable to submit them on time. Anyone with any other ideas?

Has anyone seen Berd playing? Has the new coach changed anything?
I'd make him lose about 10 kg and practise DTL shots 24/7.

Can he take Nadal out?
Looks like he is easing through.

He always does though in Aus for the past few years. 
"Berdych looks great. Not lost a set. Dark horse" bla bla.
Moment he comes up against Djoko/Rafa he folds.

Yep.. he respects these guys a lot. He won't give away any chance to please them. Only Federer is what he doesn't like and so has been going after him since 2004.

Yes he is a a bit of a choker..but normal he is the one taking the risk. Nadal and Murray are cokers when playing Djoko too.
