Darnit! I forgot about this and missed the match. Not much of a tennis guy but the hype of Canadian success this year had me intrigued enough. Tomorrow!

I'm not a big fan of Djokovic but I would prefer to see him in the other semis against Nadal.

An all-Canadian semis and in the other one you get two of the best player on the tour.

In 2010, it was called exhibition.



Now it will be for real! (unless Djoko and Nadal decide otherwise)

There's something about swinging your racket and hitting the ball with deadly precision. It must be programmed in our genes from all the centuries people spent perfecting and mastering swordsmanship, I think there's a huge similarity in the way the racket becomes an extension of your arm.

I can't watch tennis anymore though, only late rounds in grand slams...

Well Pospisil is only a year older than Raonic and if he plays as well as he did vs Berdych I think he might take this one. He's only starting out as much as Raonic, so there is no telling how good they'll both be in a couple years from now.

And saying that Pospisil shouldn't be in this position makes no sense, especially after how good Berdych played against him and since he was able to outplay the #5 player in the world. If Pospisil was 28 years I'd agree but right now this kid has got a very bright future in front of him.

Diane Sauvé...surely amongst the worst sports journalist/commentator whatever ever. Faucher...as dull as anything you can find.

Honestly, we are so not well represented as far as sports journalists are concerned. Only 1 hand is needed to know how many greats we have.....a freakin shame.

The people at Radio-Canada don't seem really knowledgeable...
The guy describing the match (was it Faucher like you're saying?) doesn't seem like someone who knows the game really well.

IIRC, this was a doubles match which was won by the Canadians!

Faucher knows the game very well, he's a great tennis player himself. You might not like the way he describes a game, like Whitesnake, but he's a very knowledgeable guy. His analyst, Jocelyn Robichaud, was a former pro player himself, but I agree he doesn't seem very comfortable in front of a camera and I personally didn't like it as well.

As for Diane Sauvé, I disagree with Whitesnake, I love her. But I'm biaised.

Didn't you like how Nadal laughed at her question? "Well...it is just my 2nd tournament on that surface...".

But hey...everybody is biased about something so that's fine with me.....only leaves to know how biased you really are...

The Ponton-Pelletier duo is better imo. Maybe because I'm used to it and I've been listening to them since I'm really young...I'm probably biased when it comes to them.

I often read Paul Roux on La Presse and I really like him. Did he ever appeared on TV?

Sorry but...BY FAR. Ponton and Pelletier are great. Yes, Hélène do loves to flirt but she's really knowledgeable. I mean, this is not even a comparison.

Oh and as much as you DON'T clap after 2 faults on the opponent's service, Gulbis is the stupid guy with his remarks. Come on....so this crowd is the reason why EVERYTIME a Canadian plays in a Canadian tournament, they are great but elsewhere they suck? When was the last time 2 Canadian reached the point where they are right now?

So dumb.....

He was whining, screaming and swearing when I watched him play against Murray. It was pathetic. This guy is ****ing arrogant. He doesn't seem like someone who shows a lot of respect for his opponents.

Somebody even told me he destroyed his racket today against Raonic. Is this true?

True. People booed him but then he gave his destroyed racket to somebody in the stands.
