The sad thing is, Verdasco isn't really even trying to win. He's doing his best to keep Tomic, who seems to have given up (or at least is showing no intensity), in the game. Verdasco should've locked the match up half an hour ago.

This match is so deplorable in quality why can't it just end.

Fiasco has lost the plot and Mugic is being his bored self ala most of the match.

Spoke too soon?

Vlad your vehement oscillation between the extremes in sport is a source of constant amusement.

Why? It's true, neither player deserves to win this match. Better off giving a bye to the second round opponent. It's really that bad.

Actually, no it isn't. It's hot and uncomfortable nonetheless.

But fuck.

Wow! Wish I'd been able to watch it. Verdasco must be getting past it or something? He usually gets to the second week here.

In other news, this Jones dude is getting absolutely and mercilessly raped by Dolgopolov after winning the first two sets. And he's not using lube. He just won the fourth set in like 15 minutes.

80+ unforced errors. I think that says a lot. He pretty much dragged Tomic back into the game in the third set even when Tomic was in such a bad mental state at the time. The only big thing I can get from that match is that tennis lost.

Dolgopolov is awesome when he's on fire. Kind of wish they erased the first two sets off the scoreboard though, it doesn't look good.

No Federer fans here? When he's on form he is by far the most enjoyable tennis player to watch.

It's more just Channel 7 being fuckwits about it. They shouldn't be allowed to broadcast sport because they make things shit.

He's ranked 37 for heaven's sake.

My girl Cirstea vs Stosur today.
