    Haha this is hilarious thanks Lindsay. What’s funny about this is I remember more or less the same people tweeting that they were rooting for Stan against Djokovic but against Roger, wow it’s just forbidden to beat that player! Poor Stan, always on the verge of beating one of the big guys but then ultimately realises who he is playing, hope this sort of win doesn’t elude from him for too much longer because he is such a great underrated player.

    Btw was it just me or does it seem like Roger and Stan aren’t the great fans from good ol’ Switzerland that everyone thinks they are. Stan seemed pissed off at the net and they didn’t have a mutual embrace as such. I think Stan is just sick of being in Roger’s shadow and just as soon as he think he’s close, he takes a step back. Roger/Tsonga and Roger/Delpo have better relationships I believe but no one can ever take away “Fedrinka” at the Olympics in 2008.

    Also Courtney Nguyen wins with the WAG war between Mirka and Benoit. Gold.

      Believe Wawrinka is still upset with Federer not playing Davis Cup earlier this year especially after Stepanek could not participate. Also, I believe this is the 3rd or 4th match that Wawrinka played a top player close but did not win.

    Fernando says Maestro challenges an” in” call on his own serve after he plays the return and hits the ball into the net and then tries pull rank and go over the head of the umpire who refused the challenge–against his own countryman and “friend” Stan. This was a disgraceful lack of fair play and sportsmanship. And no amount of spin can change this conclusion.

    You cannot challenge an in call if the ball is hit back. This would unfairly give the server the option of challenging depending upon the quality of the return. And for the server to challenge after he has hit the return is even worse. Now you have the additional option of challenging depending upon the quality of your return. This is crazy and Maestro argued that he was in the right?

    Maestro is cracking plain and simple. He will be steamrolled by the Humble Bull tomorrow and it will not be pretty.

    I am Fernando @vivafernando.
