We at the CCN sportsdesk were able to track down a frustrated and exhausted plash.ricrem following his 2nd round exit at the Australian Open losing in a 3 set war to 30th seed Markec (5059502).

CCN: So any thoughts on your match?
P.R.: Just disappointed really. I thought I played relatively well all things considered. I really have to tip my cap to Markec though, he just wouldn't quit. Whoever he plays next round will be in for quite a battle.

CCN: You're referring of course to your quick start?
P.R.: Nods Yeah, I was hoping to put him on the ropes early and I thought I did a good enough job forcing the issue with my net game (in line to pick up a +3 bonus after like 3 rounds). But damn, every time I thought I had him where I wanted him, he just kept making shots. I'd make a drop shot, he'd make some miraculous lob over my head. Maybe I got too complacent or something (not pinching when I could have tried to resolidify that bonus), I guess I thought I could take him on nothing but ground strokes alone (straight deployments) but we all saw how that ended up.

CCN: What was the most frustrating aspect of the match?
P.R.: Besides Markec hitting every shot in tarnation? Losing my serve late (6-2 to break his +3 bonus, losing all 5 rolls) to really end any hope of a comeback definitely pissed me off. I try to pride myself on at least my serve accuracy and even that fell through. It could have been the heat, I don't know. I guess I'm glad I made it out of the first round this year, but otherwise I'm not too happy with the outcome here. Luckily the season is young and there's plenty of time for improvement.

CCN: Any comments on the Mets embarrassing 9-8 loss to the Yankees tonight?
P.R.: Utters several choice words that are bleeped out. No, other then it gives me another excuse besides my defeat tonight to hit the hotel bar hard before my flight out tomorrow. If anyone's looking for me, I'll be there with at least a 6 pack of Foster's in hand.

Aussie Open sets two more quarterfinals with #30 markec and #28 heyheymymy advancing in big upset runs.

Also, the Davis Cup quarterfinals are starting to take shape with all matches now out...except for possible third sets for doubles.

#1 seed DBandit70 has advanced to the Aussie Open finals...congrats.
Brackets for Aussie Open and Davis Cup have been updated...some key doubles battles going on for Davis Cup survival.

It hasn't been a huge problem, but I have a couple people lagging on joining games (xstu78x/danfrank)...please join ASAP...I'll be recruiting some reserves to take spots if they aren't filled soon.

Also, if you're heading out of town for an extended period please send me a pm and I can schedule around that...it is summer afterall and I'm sure people will be off on vacations. thanks, flex

Re: 2009 ATP TENNIS TOUR (Aussie Open update 6-15)

Postby flexmaster33 on Tue Jun 16, 2009 2:55 pm

A couple points of clarification...

Sets 1 & 2 are flat, sunny, chained
Set #3 (if necessary) is no spoils, foggy, chained

Players should join sets 1 & 2 ASAP when they are sent out and I'm leaving it up to the players when they want to play Set 3...you can join it right away or wait until it is needed.

Also, the scoring is just a way of showing how competitive a match was...the only way to win a set is to win the map.

I go through each map and the losing player is awarded a game for every round in which he outdeploys or matches his opponent. So if the winning player takes an early bonus and scores big right away you'll probably end up with a 6-1 set, but if the losing player keeps it close and pushes it into the later rounds, then you get the 6-4 and 7-5 type scores...just for fun though.

All three starts and bonuses in two for sure gives me no chance against my opponent.

The aces(dice) are coming in and I have fought my way back from what looked to be a no win situation. I put a band aid on my broken leg so we shall see if it holds.

I think you must have your wires crossed somewhere...you are on Team Chile...down 2-1 with a doubles match and your singles match still ongoing.

Team USA is the only one to advance so far with a 4-1 win over Croatia...flags look similar for Chile and Croatia maybe that's the confusion.

The heat of Brazil got to me in the 1st set, losing it by a long margin. Took on some well needed refreshments & came back to win the 2nd & 3rd sets quite convincingly against an opponent not quite on his full form it has to be said. I think he peaked too early in a previous tourney, which I believe he was victorious in & that took the wind out of his sails a bit. So looking forward to playing ga7 in the next round of the Brazil Open.

We at CCN were able to track down Plash Ricrem following his 1st round exit in the South African Open losing to 5 seed Sun Tzup in 3 sets.

CCN: So what are you thoughts on your performance in the SA Open?
PR: Mixed, once again. I didn't think I played too poorly, but right now it just seems that the balls aren't bouncing my way.

CCN: This is the 2nd straight match where you've dropped the first set on the way to elimination. Are you concerned about an inability to come out of the gate swinging?

PR: I think that inexperience may be a factor. I mean I haven't played against most of these draws before, so usually I'm forced to spend the first set adjusting to their playing styles and what not. It also seems that they're breaking me first (going first and able to drop me an army on deployment on those weird maps that start with one territory more than needed to pick up a bonus). Hopefully in future situations I'll be able to do the same to them. I think it should also be pointed out that in both matches I've rallied back to force a 3rd set, so I don't think it's a matter of taking a first punch and being unable to get back up. I've just gotta ride that momentum into a W.

CCN: Any closing thoughts?
PR: Just gotta shrug it off and regroup for next week. Hopefully by then the bounces (dice/funny drops) may start going my way, as I'm fairly certain I'm capable enough to be playing on the tour. Also I hope we end up in some cooler climates the next few tourneys. I seem to struggle in the heat (now 0-6 lifetime on Africa), perhaps that's what I get for learning to play tennis in a location where we had to plow the snowbanks off the courts before taking our swings at 10 below 0. I think next week I'll probably end up in Charleston, where I've had some success in the past. If not, Acapulco is always nice this time of year...

Brackets are updated...new matches sent out...

Six of the eight South Africa first-round bouts went three sets...and only one higher seed advanced, so lots of upsets in Week 2.

Also, we're down to three in the Aussie Open with DBandit awaiting the winner of the #2 negoeien vs. #30 markec semifinal.

When sportsgod entered the battlefield for France , negoeien from the UK stood in amazement, watching this enormous athletic guy.
He quickly decided that he would try to win on competence and skill and certainly not on condition .
Sportsgod began the match with heavy hits and a killer serve, his mighty blows were no match for negoeien, who didn't find a way to anticipate this man's moves. He was still amazed by this France bloke so his focus was also off. He didn't get a hold on the game and was struggling to keep his own serve games. He quickly lost in the first set.

Amazed by this France guy, he asked for a time out, and just then it started to rain and the players would resume teh match tomorrow.
Negoeien could embrace the rain that moment and he searched his inner self for strenght to win the match.

The second and third set, sportsgod didn't have a chance. His blows were still hard and mighty but negoeien found a way to counter it and played some risky balls and went very agressive which helped. Then he broke the sportgod's serve and controlled the match.
This is for my country negoeien shouted and the crowd went crazy!
He defeated sportsgod after an amazing match .
Highest ever: 3038 place: 20th, winner of 12 tournies!

#1 DBandit and #30 markec are facing off for the Aussie Open championship.

In Davis Cup play...USA, Germany and France have all advanced, while the fate of Sweden vs. Spain falls to the doubles match that is currently in the second set. (Spain took the first set).

Also, we're in the finals of the Brazil Open with ga7 taking on b00060 for the big $$$

If matches continue to finish up here over the next few days...I'll send out the updated money list and start week 3 action.
