Re: irish tennis

People over on MTF saying Conor got Adrian Mannarino in round 1. Ranked 53, there were plenty of better opponents but at least it's not Roddick. If Conor wins he'll play Federer in round 2

Diatchenko got Hantuchova in round 1. Devastated to hear Dani may be in doubt for the tournament but it could at least open some doors for Valeria if she withdraws.

Re: irish tennis

Up third on court 17 tomorrow. There are cameras on that court but for some reason it's some sort of private stream that isn't shared publicly and you've to jump through a bunch of hoops to view it.

Re: irish tennis

Conor on court now, but my stupid office is behind a UK ISP so TG4 is telling me I can't watch from my region even though I'm in Ireland, and there's no other streams Hope some of the rest of you can watch!

Re: irish tennis

Oh God oh God oh God double break up in the fifth is this happening!?

No, no it fucking isn't Oh my God Conor how could you let that slip away. I feel sorry for him that his most high profile match of his career ended in this choke and now he's gonna be stuck with this label from everyone who's only hearing about him for the first time now.

Re: irish tennis

Disaster, although when he lost the 3rd set I felt the match would end with a choke at some point.

Re: irish tennis

I got a sense of dread when Conor was up 4-1 and put a bet on Mannarino in order to give myself some kind of pick-me-up if Conor lost. Unfortunately, it paid off.
