Hope it's OK for me to start a new thread - could not believe we'd burned out on the last one.

Am looking forward to seeing highlights of the Fed/Tits match later.

Watching it now and cheering on Federer.

Ooh thanks magi! I just typed something on the old one, and panicked when it wouldn't post!

I really want Stefanos/Tits grin to win this. The last point of the first set was so unfair to him angry

PrivateParkin Sun 20-Jan-19 09:49:51

Fed looks like he's just going to wear him down here... Or is he?

Raahh Sun 20-Jan-19 09:59:04

Eek- dh started talking to me about the match report he was writing for dd1's football match- and then I came back and the thread was full.


Thank you magi !

Come on Stefanos! It would be rubbish to lose in straight sets, having played so well.

I need to do the ironing. I'm still in my pyjamas.

Raahh Sun 20-Jan-19 09:59:40

Private I'm really annoyed about the first set.

PrivateParkin Sun 20-Jan-19 10:05:24

So am I Raahh - annoyed and still in pyjamas, that is. There is talk of going out - am trying to ignore it.

Tsitsipas is holding on... just...

Raahh Sun 20-Jan-19 10:10:49

Apart from walking the dog- and really it is dh's turn- I have no intention of going anywhere today grin.

RBA could be serving for the match in the 5th - but who knows , the way the matches have been going for him and Cilic grin

Raahh Sun 20-Jan-19 10:11:20

Oh- they are just saying what I said.

Raahh Sun 20-Jan-19 10:12:37

I hate tie breaks.

PrivateParkin Sun 20-Jan-19 10:13:25

Am just listening to RBA on the radio Raahh - as Eurosport is showing skiing on their second channel. Oh - he's just won it - fair play to him!! What a great tournament he's having.

Raahh Sun 20-Jan-19 10:14:30

Oh yes, he's won.

In a way, he deserves it- he's played some incredible stuff this year- but I feel for Marin sad

PrivateParkin Sun 20-Jan-19 10:15:54

Oh come on

Raahh Sun 20-Jan-19 10:16:21

COME ON STEFANOS! Take this set!

Raahh Sun 20-Jan-19 10:18:23

Of course , if Tsitsipas wins, he will face Rafa instead of Federer (in the semis if they both get theregrin)

We know that Stefanos has the 'Rafa ruined my life' t-shirt . grin

PrivateParkin Sun 20-Jan-19 10:20:06

Apparently John Millman was commentating on the Rafa match, and he said when Rafa plays like he has been, you basically have no chance. So I feel Tsitsipas could be donning the t-shirt again... if he gets there...

Come on Stefanos!!

PrivateParkin Sun 20-Jan-19 10:20:31


Raahh Sun 20-Jan-19 10:21:30


That will shut the 'he hasn't dropped a set' commentary up at least.

JaneJeffer Sun 20-Jan-19 10:21:59

Well done Stefanos!

PrivateParkin Sun 20-Jan-19 10:22:35

Stayin Alive being played at the changeover grin

Raahh Sun 20-Jan-19 10:23:44

RBA is having a great tournament.
And yes, he beat Djok in Doha.

So, Vamos Busta Gut!

JaneJeffer Sun 20-Jan-19 10:24:15

I feel awful today. Went out for dinner last night and I don't know what they put in the food but I had horrible nightmares confused

Raahh Sun 20-Jan-19 10:28:43

Oh, Jane that doesn't sound good!

JaneJeffer Sun 20-Jan-19 10:31:40

And I didn't even have any cheese grin

PrivateParkin Sun 20-Jan-19 10:34:20

That sounds awful Jane - hope you feel ok soon.
