Carlos can always hit on them like he does to every woman so maybe
I completely forgot about the teeny bopper factor . I was sitting here at home annoyed at the crowd actually hoping that Roger's supporters could be louder...lol.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one dealing with this frustration when it comes to David. I wasn't a fan of his right away but it still bothered me that he wasn't being given any credit for his run at Wimbledon in 2002 and then when he was able to back it up with results this year STILL nothing . I don't know why I'm all that surprised. Rainer has had an awesome year but the "casual fan" would have no idea about it. Same goes for Guille.

It just gets to be so frustrating, not to mention pathetic, that we often know more about the players than the "experts" do. I can't even begin to tel how many times i've yelled at my TV when they get their facts wrong . I wonder if there will be a day when Tennis is treated with more respect as an International sport. I know it's a pipe dream but hey...

Go Rainer!! Go David!! Go Guille!!

Thank You Roger!! . I wanted Roger to win tonight anyway but the minute that David won this afternoon I really wanted Roger to win. I know it's slightly mean but I can't help it...lol. I do like Roger but I like David a lot more. However, I might go prematurely grey due to Rainer & Guille's match tomorrow. I don't want either one to go 0-1!! This is so unfair!! I only hope that Carlos can step up and beat Junior tomorrow night. I don't care if it takes him a tight 3 sets like it took Roger tonight. I just want Carlos to get himself that first win and silence the crowd . I'm so glad that I have 4 top favorites in the Master Cup. But only one of three that I want to see holding that trophy .

I know this will probably sound pathetic (as I've been told that it does) but I have this lousy habit of cursing my favorites when I say if I want them to win too early in a tournament. I will say this. My pick for this whole thing is playing the first match of the day tomorrow. I know it doesn't help but my liking for him will be about as obvious as my liking for David. So then you'll know my top two favorites without me out and out saying it . Sorry, I know I'm a pain
