Re: Copa Argentina de Tennis

Hardcourt.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Copa Argentina de Tennis

Gaston beated my Nalbo on hard court! It is a joke. If David is in the fine condition, Gaston won't take a set from David.

Best of luck to David Nalbandian. Bodes well for 2005.

Luis Lobo did the same thing and went with David out of the court.
Lobo has been taking care of David during the whole exhibition, I could see it yesterday when David was watching the prior matches and Luis hugged him and kissed him and spent all the time talking to him. The crowd was great, very respectful and thankful for his fight and spirit.
And finally, I want to congratulate Gastón for this win, he trully deserved it
Jazz, sorry, it's another unprefect ending for you. Another finalist, another final curse. I know you are sad, the feeling even doubles when you watch it live. But, this is a excellent exhibition, we see much joy and happy moments for both you and him in your former match reports, that's enough. Don't let the unprefect final ruin your great experience. Keep the trust as you always do, he will do better in 2005.

And congrats to Gaston, according to Jazz, this Copa Argentina de Tennis can bring the luck to the player who win it. So it is really a good preparation for Gaston's 2005.

Sorry, Arg girl. I am not a Gaston fan. but he isn't that bad on hard court like you think. He is a talented player. If you watch some of his matches, you will feel that. Many people have the misconception that Argentinians can only play well on clay except David. In fact, many of them play well on hard court, and can even better in the future. Gaston deserves this winning, though i had strongly hoped David could win this time.

Bov, if you watch David enter another final in Rotterdam live, bring the dutch luck to him. After Rosie and Jazz, I don't hope to see another sad girl.

Re: Copa Argentina de Tennis

I'm feeling better now. I just watched parts of yesterday's match and Gastón was superb. David started well, but then made a lot of errors and couldn't come back. Gastón might be a clay court especialist, but he plays really well on hardcourts. He even sent Federer to a tie break, and not many can say that. Just ask Hewitt or Roddick
I think it was a very positive tournament for David in spite of the final. He gained a lot of respect and new fans, I can assure you that.
This is what Gastón said at the end:
"Quiero decir que hay que valorar mucho que David haya venido después de lo que le pasó. Quiero que todos lo aplaudamos mucho"
"I want to say that we have to value a lot David coming here after what happened to him. I want that everyone applaudes him a lot."

Jazz i saw him in yhe tv, was so, so sad when he started to cry!!! I just did the same, i could not help it!!!
But the ggod thing is that Lobo and the organization was with him, all the time, and they respct him a lot!!!
And Frana, taulk about him with so much proud!!!! He says great thing of David.....
I guess al the tournaments was with him, you know what i mean??? I guess he felt that everybody was warm with him.....
Well, one of my wishes for this cristmas is that in 2005 David can make it in the finals matches!!!! Cause is clear that he can rich the finals, but win that is another history.....Even with that i´m really glad, cause his streng and compromise!!!!!
Was Great see him again playing!!!!

Kisses

spectators already did that to him, and even gave him more. Hope next time, you can watch him raise the trophee live, Jazz. Good memory for share.

Re: Copa Argentina de Tennis

What Gaston said was lovely and I'm glad the fans applauded David. I just hope he takes positive memories away with him - not sad ones And Jazz - I'm glad you're feeling better today.
