He might have had an easy route to the semi final, but he still played pretty well. The match ebbed and flowed and both players could have won it. Murray did show signs of taking the game to Djokovic, possibly as a result of having Lendl in his corner, and hopefully he will continue to play in the same way for the rest of the year.The Hitch said:Nole got the hardest quarter possible, Murray the easiest.
I know her, but she was clearly the best tennis playster at this Tournament, so she deserved the win. I'm not saying this because I like here, cause I don't actuallyThe Hitch said:Azarenkas problem isnt that she shrieks.
ITs that shes an absolute *****. The biggest spoiled brat in the history of tennis.
Throws tantrums all the time.
There was a game in the French 3 years ago against a Carla Suarez Navarro where she started swearing at the crowd and arguing with the ref and crying on court and screaming insults at everyone every time she lost the point and as a result she was booed heavily. Then when they booed her she turned to the crowd and started making gestures to them, all the while absolutely sobbing.
Earlyier in a prep tournament the umpire made a mistake and she started crying on court like Samprass in AO 96 (one of the greatest games ever, where his coach had just died earlier that day and he was crying the whole match but came back from 2 down to win in 5).
Here is another example of Azarenka tantrums.
Another, fast forward to 4.00 though its all tantrums.
Or playing nude tetris.El Pistolero said:Deserved winner, she had a pretty high level against both Clijsters and Sharapova. She needs to shut the **** up while playing tennis though, it's like watching a way too loud porn movie.
This is a major blow to Nadal on so many levels. Physical, mental, he is now 7-0 down to Djokovic in last 7 games. He can hardly come back from this, kinda thing he did to Federer in 2008 Wimbledon final, Fed is not the same since then.The Hitch said:Hopefully Nole can get to the final of French where it will be a lot more even and if Nadal can win he can turn it around.
the 2008 defeat wasnt that bad for Fed. He was on 5 in a row and he lost so what. He had beaten Nadal in the 2 previous wimb finals and the ones Nadal had won were all on clay.DenisMenchov said:This is a major blow to Nadal on so many levels.

Nadal lost in madrid due to hard semi-final against Djokovic. French Open 2009 was very bad, Nadal lost in 4th round, Djokovic in QF, adn Murray was in bad form. Also the old Fed would never lost to DelPo after first 2 sets. But I must admit he was great at AO 2010.The Hitch said:the 2008 defeat wasnt that bad for Fed.

He won the French easy
It was 2009 AO final that crushed Federer and he cried. Even then he still went on to beat Nadal easy in Madrid and complete his GS in the French and get a bit lucky against Roddick at Wimbledon, and narowly lose to Del Potro in the US and win the AO.
