Stefan Edberg def Ying-Chang 6-0 6-4

Im very glad that i won this match. :lol: First set i was playing very good and he dident.
Second he starts to play alot better and i did more errors due to his top spin play.
But i feelt i was in control of the match and that feelt nice. He break me once but i break
immediate back. My last service game i won pretty easily.
I wich i had BlackyM´s memory... Then i could have talk alot of the second set..lol :lol: :roll:

BUT! :!: Between every point he was in the menu for, let´s say about 0.5 sec to 5 sec...
Even between my first and second service he whent in to menu..
That was very annoying and i said that to him but he talk first about that i was cheeting(??)
and then that it was someting strange about his settings...
He find this behavior improper(?) for a tournaments match..
Playing just for FUN, and u should also do that ;-)

Stephan Edberg def. Ying-Chang 60 64

Where do I begin???

Please take no offense to this Stephan, but i must tell the truth.
At first I thought he was cheating. I pretty much always play the same way. I am not a streaky player.
-My first serve % was in the 50's the entire match, when it's usually around 70's.
-My error count was much higher than usual, and anyone who plays me knows I dont make errors, especially on easy balls...
-His winner count was very high for playing against me.
-His aces were much higher than usual.
-I could not run down many of his shots, which anyone knows I certainly can do normally.

So i thought somehow he or his computer was doing something. He didn't seem nasty but you never know. Then I played a slightly better game at 05 down, and started to realize that in fact, it was me not reacting well to anything, not him cheating. Still though I couldn't really come to terms with the level of my play because I have never played like this before. It's probably the result of the amount of "fun" I had last night, and the fact that I woke up at 5:00 in the evening with a massive headache. But it was still very very strange.

He may complain about me being frustrated so I'll address anything he may add right now:
-I watched the replays twice in the first 2 games, because I missed very routine shots that I NEVER miss. I needed to see why.
-Every once and a while I went into the stats for about 2 second each time to look at my first serve % and error count, which were both very very strange as I said earlier. I did it once after his first serve because my player didn't even move for the out ball. The rest were on my serve games.

Again, no offense here.
I played a bit better in the second set and I lost 46. I would have won in straight sets if I played the way I did normally like against goran. I'm sorry goran for beating you because I feel you would have won this match. Stephan says he hopes he can do well because it's his home tourny so I wish him the best. But I am afraid he wont beat Plavia Penetta and definitely not any set against Hakanomoku. I wish you luck and I hope I dont embarass myself again like this.
I'm proud of my heritage!

Bla bla bla...


First of all, u dident go to menu only in ur service!
And second i was better than u in this match. I adjust my game of playing against u.
I usaly plays aggressive but that i couldent do against u because off the top spin.
Thats true that maybe Goran had beaten me. As a matter of fact he did beat me yesterday.
But i think that was the first time.. We play the same style so we usaly have som great matches, and
we have played many many matches.

It should be very interesting to play the semifinal! I´m realy looking forward to that!
Playing just for FUN, and u should also do that ;-)

Richard Gasquet 2:
I don't think he cheated. I thought he was early in the first set, but then I realized it was me who was reacting exceptionally poorly. Read my post more carefully.

Stephan:
I never said I was better in this match. You were better and you won. But that doesn't change anything, and I still believe I would have won normally. It's great that you played well, and as you told me after the match, you are so happy you beat me. I'm not quite sure why beating me is such a good feat for you :roll: (people are congratulating you?). I'm the one who is new and rising, you're a top 10 player. But it's nice to know how we match up.
All I say is goran would have beaten me as well today, as would many players. Don't be too quick to hand yourself a golden star.

I didn't mean to be too offensive, but I'm not going to sugar-coat the loss. Sure I'm usually nice and all, and I like having friends, but I'm not going to give a false match report. I tell it how it is. I'll be the first to commend a player for outplaying me, but I'm not going to pretend that I was myself in this match. Sorry if you don't understand this.
I'm proud of my heritage!

Yes!!!!!!!!! Im in my first final!!! :dance: :dance: :dance: I´m very VERY happy!!! :bounce: :bounce:

About the match. Well i was prepared for a tough match. But i was little better than him and he did to much errors.
It was a very close first set when he acctually break me once but i could win it anyway. Second it was not so hard for me because he start to do even more errors and i held my service game pretty easily.

So now its the hard hitting Haka in final. Should be interesting.

Thx Flavia and good luck in future tournaments!! :D

Hakanomoku def. Stefan Edberg 6-2 6-0

Wow! I didn't expect a match like this. He played so bad and did a lot of errors and that was the key of the match.
First set was closer than the score shows. In my first 2 serves I faced break points that I managed to safe them.
He was playing very agressive hitting on the lines and I was playing bad. After this, the match was easy for me.
I played agressivly and defended very good. It was a bit laggy. It was strange coz lag between us is usually very good.
Good luck in your future tournaments, Stefan. My first title is here :D

No surprise that Hakanomoku won this title. He was clearly the best in the tournament. But how did you lose 2 games in the final :?:
...kidding (kind of)...
