Re: Solidarity Challenge

Great to hear it's been such a success!

Can't wait for the pix - maybe I'll check them out at some internet cafe in London...

Re: Solidarity Challenge

Check this out:
Nalbandian y Cabrera vencieron 7-4 a Ligato-Maradona y luego David y Diego les ganaron 7-5 a Marcos y el Pato. El juez fue Héctor Baldassi, que se sumó al show sacando varias amarillas. Cuando Ligato le hizo un punto a Nalbandian, de la tribuna bajó un "come on", el típico y odioso grito de Lleyton Hewitt. Después, David fingió un dolor en el tobillo y Ligato tiró: "Este parece Coria".

Nalbandian and Cabrera beat by 7-4 to Ligato-Maradona and then David with Diego beat 7-5 to Marcos and el Pato. The referee was Hector Baldassi, who was part of the show by showing yellow cards to the players. When Ligato made a point to Nalbandian, someone from the crowd yelled "come on", the typic and hatefuly ell from Lleyton Hewitt. Then, David pretended to have a pain in the ankle and Ligato said: "This one looks like Coria"

Re: Solidarity Challenge

Quotes:
Diego Maradona
"I didn't come here because David won the Masters, I did it because Argentines should show that we can all be united"
"No vine aquí porque David ganó el Masters, lo hice porque los ar-
gentinos tenemos que mostrar que podemos estar todos unidos".


David Nalbandian
"I thank everyone who's helped us give a hand to the people from Cordoba. Having Diego next to me made me feel like crying"
"Agradezco a todos los que nos ayudaron a darle una mano a la gente de Córdoba. Con Diego al lado me dieron ganas de llorar".


Marcos Ligato
"We've always thought of helping people. But it never crossed our minds that so many people was gonna join us"
"Siempre pensamos en ayudar a la gente. Pero nunca se nos cruzó por la cabeza que se nos iban a sumar tantas personas".

La Nación says that they were able to gather $350.000. In the benefit, David gave his racket (the one with which he beat Roger in the Masters Final) so it could be auctioned, and Maradona bought it by 25.000

Re: Solidarity Challenge

I just saw on tv an interview with Maradona, Diego kept on praising David, and David was all red with embarassement and laughing all the time
Here's a part of what he said, it's from today's newspaper:

“Soy conductor, tengo un programa de TV, que seguramente voy a repetir, y puedo hablar, con propiedad. Quiero aclarar que no es porque David haya ganado el Masters. David entró en mi corazón desde el momento que vino a mi programa y que se comportó muy bien. Está dentro de la familia Maradona”
"I'm a tv host, I have a tv show, that I'm sure will be doing again and I can talk, properly. I want to put things in its place: I didn't come here because David won the Masters. David came into my heart when he came to my tv show and he behaved really well. He's inside the Maradona family"

"Voy a venir pero quiero comprometer a varios empresarios para el año que viene. Esto no terminó. Falta mucho por hacer. Están haciendo una cosa muy linda, cosa que nos enorgullece a todos. ¡Cómo no vamos a venir! Estaba comprometido con la amistad de David. Gracias a Dios que lo ganó, por él y por el deporte argentino. Por los giles que hablan...

"I'll come back next year, but I want to compromise several businessmen for next year too. This isn't over. There's still a lot of work to do. They're doing a very nice thing, and we're all proud about this. How can I not come! I was compromised with David's friendship. Thank God he won the Masters, because of him and because of the Argentine sport. And for the idiots that talk...

-With which big triumph of yours do you compare this title?
-With the '86 World Cup- We should be proud because he beat the biggest one of all. And you have to have a huge pair of balls to do that. No doubt. This is for all the McEnroe's who talk, to shut up, for everyone to shut up, because Federer can "kill" them all. He beat the best of all.

–¿Con qué gesta tuya lo comparás?

–Con el Mundial ‘86. Tenemos que estar orgullosos porque le ganó al más grande de todos. Para eso hay que tener unos huevos bárbaros. Sin discusión. Que se callen los McEnroe, que se callen todos, porque Federer los “mata” a todos. Le ganó al mejor de todos.
