China Open

I know I don't usually like to start thread about the upcoming tournaments because of bad luck, but I'm pretty excited about this one. I've been reading a lot of articles today and it seems it's gonna be a huge deal!
I already found a pic of David, it's from a poster they'll have:

I don't know what you've been reading, but my advice is that, don't trust in those too much. Our press (I'm Chinese) has the ability to exaggerate everything. I've talked with some ppl in tennis business and we had a big laugh.

Anyway, our goverment will still make it "a success". They will have to hold this tournament till 2008.

David is one of the "most likely to play" players here though, provided that he is healthy.

What to believe in, it's impossible to say?
What to believe in when they change your name, wash your brain, play the game again, yeah, yeah, yeah...

Re: China Open

I'm sure he will go there, I heard Safin is already there and that Coria won't go.

that's the Beijing press , please don't include all Chinese press in this stupid exaggeration group, especially Shanghai . i love our Heineken Open, although it's quite smaller, compared against China Open. But i love it any way, and definitely will go to watch it live. it's such a pity that i can't watch David's match but whatever, he will be sure to come here to attend 2005 TMC

i am not sure how's david's performance this time, because jazz has mentioned he has a cut one the toe, which could influence his moving. More important, the Chinese time here is totally reverse to USA's. it will be hard to adapt the big jet-leg. however, this is equal to every players.

i also want him to play against youzhny again (OMG, youzhny follows David!!), he has lost twice to youzhny this year, more terrible, are the latest only two lost on hard court. if can beat a guy who has beaten you twice recently, both mind and metality will befinit a lot.

Safin will definately come, as he has propagate China open last year, also Srichaphan. just after a surgery, Coria won't come for sure.

Re: China Open

oh, i understand. coz this is the first time of China Open, but attracts many good guys to come here, so no wonder many press will put some attention on it. But if say it is another GS or sth, that is go too far. Every GS has long history and glorious background, which can't be reached in only one year star players coming. Besides, tennis is still not popular in my country, not as Australia, France, Britain, or USA. i should say Beijing press and the govenment have over-estimated our tennis market. just as kiro said, they DID exaggerate sth.

but whatever, i want David win~~~~~

I'm not sure I want to see him play Youzhny just yet but I agree that he did play some good tennis in that match despite everything else. I know we won't get TV coverage here in Europe, so will have to rely on live scoring while I'm at work. China afternoon and evening matches will be on during the early morning here when I'm in my office, so at least more "civilised" than the middle of the night ones at the US Open!!

Re: China Open

no. at 2am? can't do it. i will be too sleepy; besides, they probably won't show any action anyway, since it doesn't involve US tennis players.
