  1. Hi Nick, looking at your result predictions you have no upsets down with all the top tennis player’s / seeds going through. I’m practically looking forward to seeing on the women’s side the returning Kim Clijsters from early retirement and Maria Sharapova http://www.vtennis.co.uk/Maria-Sharapova.htm back form 8 months shoulder injury. Also the potential clashes between Federer, Nadal and Andy Murray http://www.vtennis.co.uk/andy-murray.htm at this year’s US Open should be something to look forward too?

  3. Not sure you got the Zvonerava result right!!

  4. Oudin/Petrova – agree with most of what you wrote but I do think the clock strikes Midnight for Oudin here. As you pointed out Maria basically gift warpped the match for Oudin and she still almost gave it back. NOW there is actually some expectations for Oudin and now she feels it. Oudin will be great someday but someday is in the future and not today. I don’t want to get too much into gambling here but Oudin is actually the betting favorite. IF this was a first round matchup Petrova is a monster and massive favorite so now I am supposed to believe Oudin has gotten that much better than Petrova in a week? And let’s not discount the fact OUdin isn’t 100% as well. Petrova wins the first set in somewhat of a struggle and dominates the 2nd set. Petrova 6-4/6-2

  5. Nick – congrats on getting Oudin over Petrova. Things looked good for me after 1 set andI think even you would agree IF Petrova gets 1 of those 4 points to go up 5-2 in 2nd set – MATCH OVER! But it didn’t – so congrats.

    And that bring about something I have wondered about for some time – so why not ask someone who knows “a tad more” than me about tennis 🙂

    To me – it seems like when a player goes down big time in a set that won’t eliminate them if they lose (Women – 1st set or 2nd set if they are UP 1-0……or the Men in any set that will do no worse than put them down 2-0 or if up 2-1 a set that will tie it at 2-2) they give the appearance of sort of “givingup” on the set and saving eneregy for other sets

    By this I mean if Female Player X is up 1-0 in sets and in Set 2 she is down, say, 4-0, she would rather just “give up” on the set and lose, say, 6-1 rather than try and fight back and win the set because losing 6-1 saves her more energy than trying to win the set – losing, say, 6-4 and now she extended more enegry and wasted it.

    I know this is long winded and I am sorry for that but do (some) players “give up” on a set to save eneergy for the next one(s).

  6. Большое спасибо автору. Возможно, в будущем я и действительно реализую аналогичную затею. 🙂
