What is this man thinking?




a. Higueras is so fired.
b. Attack -- no, stay back -- no, serve and volley ...
c. Great. Now even my hair's starting to look bad.

Hey Naf, I'm going with B first. He really looked befuddled in his game plan. I got this impression he tried to do what Higueras said at the beginning by running around to hit his forehand more, but when he saw that wasn't working, he decided to take matters into his own hands, which made it worse.

Oh well, it was a good run, I guess.

I don't know Naf. It is Roger’s strangest performance to me besides Fish's match. He seemed lost from the very beginning of the match, after the second game to be exact. He played Rafa twice only weeks ago and he took both matches to Rafa even though he could not pull a win. I thought strategies were working for him and he could pull an upset this time.

I was completely stunned and am still speechless by Roger’s performance.

Van! I told you Federer didn't have a chance! I shouldn't rub it in, I guess. I can't believe that after hiring a coach, Federer actually looked worse on clay than he did last year. He looked so schizo out there. Like I said, Fed's chance at the French looked much better last year. He might have missed the bus.

I know, Mashimaro. I was sitting there, just flabbergasted. He went through about five game plans in just the first set! Did you also notice how bashful Nadal seemed after the match? No rolling around on the floor, very apologetic after the match. I don't think he expected to beat Fed like that. Who knows? Maybe we'll find there was something wrong with him. Thanks for stopping in again!
