Sorry, Brian, but you were wrong all along...The men KNOW how and when to hit down the line shots, and from the little we got to see from Hewitt-Schalken that was a much better and entertaining match to see...The quality of play was outstanding and there was a suspense and unpredictability factors that were absent from the first women's semifinal...

How about this:

We're half way into the 4th set and Malisse has a 24:5 winner to error ratio.

That is SO brilliant I can't help but wonder if their stats are wrong!

Make that 25:5

and Richard is at 18:17

and NBCrap is showing a TAPED match.

I think those stats are fairly correct. Xavier's hit very few UEs so far.

for a moment i was scared that Monique was referring tot he women's semi-finals and i was wondering what did she see that i didn't :eek: yes that Hewitt-Schalken match was terrific. the suspense was killing me. it could have gone either way right until the end. actually the excitement didn't start IMO until the third set when Hewitt had 4 match points and lost them all. after that it became a terrific match with both guys fighting til the end. ;) ;)

That is amazing :o

TO hit only 5 errors in 4 sets :o

5 errors in ONE set would be impressive.

That match was really great. :) But Sjeng should have won. :(

No women's match has been as exciting as that so far.

Of course, it would have been better if they only had played best of 3. :p

Xavier played great!!!! I'm so glad he won. He was worried because breaking Krajicek's serve is NOT easy!
