Everybody was already there training, but I didn't spend so much time on the practice courts, I rather watched the qualies matches.
From the "Chicos Latinos", I saw mainly Pico and Horna. I really had a good laugh watching Horna. I was sitting next to his team, they're so freaking loud, VAMOVAMOVAMO LUCHO VAMOVAMO!!, and "Lucho" looks so aggressive, like a big cat in a cage, lol. He went MAD against Serra - I understand it's irritating to lose to Serra because the guy always looks half asleep
-, so there was some nice "racket abuse" from Horna, it was fun.
I also watched the other Frenchies, since PHM and Grosjean had to go through the qualies. PHM was in a terrible mood.
I know, it's not so exciting to have to play the qualies of Hamburg, but he never seems to smile, even in training.
Grosjean didn't qualify, but his matches against Gulbis and Bolelli were really fun. He would have deserved to qualify imo, he wasn't playing that bad. Gulbis really is very talented, he has a fun game to watch.
Bolelli should ask to change his ATP profile pic because he looks hundred times better in person. I hope he will do well in RG, I wouldn't mind seeing him again.
I was very surprised to hear Vliegen swearing in French, I thought he spoke Dutch!
That's it, I guess. Not so much to tell, but I had a great time.
(Oh, and Oscar Hernandez, who gets so much hype on MTF, has to be the most boring player on the tour. Even when you see him in person, you feel like leaving the court after one game only.
