In case we qualify for the final, I might not be able to play after Sunday, because I'm going back to Serbia and I don't know the state of the wireless connection in Belgrade, so the deadlines shouldn't change so close to the end of the cup :shock: I think I told you before that I'm leaving on Sunday, and not intending to play after that (after the Team Cup deadline) so this change is unacceptable...Also, what is the reason of the increase to 5 matches? Anyways, Nemanja and Florian, let's play the singles matches as soon as possible, starting from tonight or so ;)

Who chooses the surface?

Doubles: Stajus def. Nemanja 6-4 6-2 (we played a few days ago and I allowed him to pick the surface as I don't care)...He played very well, it was 4-4 at one point ;)

Ok, it seems that I need to play many reserves :whistle: So, as soon as I finish with Florian/Nemanja, I'll have to play like 5 more matches max :| :fear:

Stajus def. Federer Roger 2-6 6-3 7-5

terrible slow connection, with some desynch at some point...this + the newline synthetic + very low serve speed all along the match made my options of attack very little.
congrats to him !

Good game, 117 delay and no lag ratio really, but sometimes slidy moments...and then usually the desynchs came...but not more than 5-10 of them I guess. I was performing chokes all along...but somehow came out on top...First set was just an epic choke where at 2-1* I had millions of BPs and he held, then broke me to love, then I went on a holiday until the 2nd set :jap: GL in the future ;)

P.S. Oh, and good surface selection I guess :roll:

BlackyM - N. Djokovic 6-7, 3-6

I couldnt move whole match, at all, fortunately he was also playing bad first set, so we got to tiebreak, I actually had a chance on 6-5, on 0-15 and 30-30, but as I played so bad, I couldnt get myself a chance for break.

Second set, I couldnt catch a serve anymore, as he had 80% of first serve above 120mph + my very hard movement, so it resulted with lots of aces (11 in that set for him), and one my bad game serve where I hit 2/7 first serve (one 1st serve was 98mph...it was worse than 2nd serve), and miss a ball that goes in the middle of the court at Deuce costed me this match.

Reserves:

Singles: Voja def. Stajus 6-0 6-0

Nothing to do on clay...and again errors on spinned shots...and even if its not an error he will reach it. And idk how he hits his dropshots because they are 5 times better than anybody else's I guess...cya ;)

Singles: N.Djokovic def. Stajus 6-3 7-6 (5)

xD...I kept coming back in this one, he was serving for it at 6-3 *5-4 but I managed to break back...then we got to the TB and he had 4 MPs 6-2 and I came back to 6-5 xdddd...and also had a nice chance to win that point but I messed up a shot and then he hit a winner :yes: He's a great player, but at least we can have a nice game...with Voja I just can't play really, nightmare match up :D :whistle: GL for the rest 8-)

Doubles: Stajus def. N.Djokovic 6-3 6-2

P.S. I hate clay 8-)

Reserve for the Final:

Singles
N.Djokovic def. Sybille Bammer 6-3 6-2

First of all, i want to congratulate him for improving a lot. He played a good match, though i think he can play even better :P
I couldnt get used to the surface :S
I made 38 errors, which is probably my new negative record in a 2 setter... (I made 3 winners more :P ) Everything i tried, ended in an error...

GL in your future ;)

Sybille Bammer def. Federer Roger 6-4 6-3

I wasn't moving well and i hate this surface, but he played really good on my serves so that he didn't get to any trouble for that win. Saving 3 sp and 4 mp all on his serves was funny, like if i could only start to play good under "pressure"...

GL for the rest !

He said the most things. It started with the same bad feeling which i had against Stefi, but then after 3-2 i played 2 perfect games. After that he hold and i had then 3 set points at 5-3, didnt use them, but used the 1st set point on his serve.

GL in your future

P.S. Stan doesn't allow me to post what I want :evil:
