Re: The Olympics

Good to see that he's motivated, hopefully his body is able to keep up with what his mind wants. Good luck to David.

Vamos David and Juan Carlos

Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid it will never truely begin.

Re: The Olympics

Hi everyone! I haven't been here in such a long time, I don't even know if you remember me anymore LOL
Any way,I was reading this article and I wanted to share it with you, for old time sakes.

http://www2.lavoz.com.ar/especiales/...nota_id=229756

THE DAY IN WHICH CAÑAS AND NALBANDIAN CRIED
Tennis player Guillermo Cañas expressed today his satisfaction for the first Olympic medal gotten for Argentina, from the Judo player Paula Pareto. He said that "that olimpic spirit is the one I came looking for", and confessed that Nalbandian and himself cried with emotion.

Cañas told us an anecdote from the olimpic village, about the young judo plaer, who became the first argentinian in the histoy of that sport to get a medal in the olympic games.

"It was a very special situation, we had finished training in the afternoon and with David (Nalbandian ) and Diego Rivas we wanted to go to the gym and exersise and bit more. There was the tv on in there and the judo competition was on and we saw there was a tiny argentinian flag. "the guys must be competing, let's get togethe",I said to the rest", started telling us his story.

"Near the tv, there was a group of cubans who were also judo players. So when we started to watch, we saw there was a discussion with a referee and we started to ask what was going on cause we didn't understand anything. the Cubans told us that the Argetinian had won and it was for a medal. So we sticked around a bit longer." added Cañas.

"We saw it through till they gave her the medal. In that moment, we were right in front of the tv and were watching a very emotional moment. So a tear fell, but I dind't want to see behind me cause there were David and Rivas. So I look to one side and saw that David was also crying. Are you moved?, I asked him. "Yes, I'm also moved, he said"

The story doesn't end there. "At night, I had to go to sleep early, but we all wanted to keep feeling the joy. So, some of us stick around outside the hotel, we were like ten, talking about life and she arrived. It was an amazing moment, all of us clapping and chanting... The guys from judo had brought a flag for her", went on with his story.
"I don't think it was planned to have that medal on the very first day of the competition. But living that olimpic spirit, what we felt in the ceremony and in this moment, which I didn't live it personally, but from a side of it, was just what I came here looking for".

Yay David for his win today. He's one of my favorite players and it's good to see him win again.

Re: The Olympics

A nice and easy victory for David as expected today. Hopefully he can end Massu's title defence.

Re: The Olympics

David and Willy lost to Darcis and O.Rochus 7-6(6) 6-7(5) 3-6.

Rather surprising. Oh well. This should keep David focus absolutely on what's happening in singles.

Was it then in Estoril four months ago when you started adoring Roger?
