David Plays Estoril 2009

Brutal draw, this:

(3) David Ferrer vs Daniel Gimeno
Oscar Hernandez vs (WC) Rui Machado
Guillermo Garcia-Lopez vs Maximo Gonzalez
Paul Capdeville vs (5) David Nalbandian

If David should make it that far, there's a QF match-up with Ferrer. This is a bad match-up for David on clay, as Ferrer holds a 6-4 lead and will probably improve on it with a match here. I really don't expect a stellar tournamet from David at this point; just hope he gives it his best.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

David is scheduled to play tomorrow, after lunch time.
I hope he is feeling alright.

Re: David Plays Estoril 2009

Estoril will be shown on bwin, but David's match isn't being displayed as one of the matches that will be on there today (Love the complete randomness of bwin ). But they also have coverage of some matches on the second court.

If bwin doesn't have it, then there's a stream of the RTP channel here, but from memory it's almost impossible to see the ball on it:

Bwin is showing the match. They are warming up. Good luck to David.

Yeah, I've noticed - and bwin have a slightly bigger screen than they used to.

But I don't know whether this is a good thing because it stays the same size when I change the resolution (annoying code used in it). It's really distracting to me trying to watch it, maybe I will get used to it after a while.

Re: David Plays Estoril 2009

Double break, from what I have seen so far, he is there only for appearance fee.
