Yeah, I don't want that to happen. A lot of great players are gone: Henman, Schuettler(sp?), Philippoussis, and Safin or Federer will be gone too...I hope David doesn't join them! I'm so nervous!!!
Hugs, J.

I got up this morning to see that David lost to Jarrko, 3-6 3-6 . I'm hoping that it was more to how well Jarrko played just to make myself feel better.

And with Guille out today I'm going to have to go look at the draw to see if I even have a slight favorite left.

PAW 2013:
Munich - 2nd place
Halle - 4th place
's-Hertogenbosch - 4th place

I tought that his match against Nieminen will be hard, even so I can't believe it that he's lost so easily...

Re: Next Stop.......Dubai

Another sad new for me after Guille's loss

I couldn't watch the match, so I can't do any comment about it. I guess Jarkko was just better today

Aren't all love stories destined to fail?

Re: Next Stop.......Dubai

Jarkko should never be underestimated and it was a tough match for him, David could have easily drawn a UAE qualifer but hey it's one match and it's not like he lost to a jabroni.

Now it's time for David to focus on Indian Wells.

Very sadly, it seems like David was still suffering quite badly from his ankle injury during yesterday's match This is what he said afterwards:-

Nalbandian: "I am recovering from my ankle injury and don't feel so good yet. I tried everything I could but it wasn't enough today. I couldn't move so well today which is a big problem for my game. He played good today too."

I do hope this is not too serious and he recovers fully for Indian Wells and Miami where so many points are at stake.


Supporting Djoković, Tipsarević, Soderling, Tursunov, Youzhny, Cilić and quite a few more

Re: Next Stop.......Dubai

So how many points does David need to defend in IW and Miami? I mean there is no point in playing, if he doesn't feel he can't move well, he doesn't have the movement then he is in huge trouble.

You never know he might need more time off. I hope not, but that might be the best thing for him.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
