Re: NEWS

He got the most complicated part of the draw...I hope he can do it, and if Calleri loses, I really hope he can beat Safin for once!

It will be a good test for David, but you have to be strong amongst those "nasty" Frenchies in the crowd.
Maybe a bottle of gin hidden in my handbag will help! Seriously though - I do remember some of those "nasty" Frenchies reduced me to tears by their treatment of David during his 5-setter against Coutelot last year - so - yes - OK - promise I'll be stronger this year!

It's not like the hog racing in Kentucky sigma, these Latin crowds do know how to give the treatment to an opposing player especially if they question the calls.

You can't think it's like a French war hero, it's not an easy foe.

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: NEWS

Alright, then, we won't be loud and belligerent. We'll just throw tomatoes and eggs at his opponents....
And, hog calling is rather annoying, considering those folks in Arkansas have us beat...LOL!!!

Re: NEWS

This is from Coria, he's not great with words, but he mentioned David:
"Safin is very dangerous, Moyá is terribly dangerous. Federer will still be dangerous, and then there are some other players. There might be surprises like last year, when nor me or Verkerk were favourites and got to the SF. David (Nalbandian) too. Even more cause he had two weeks to prepare well, and is always a dangerous player. He showed it in Rome. I think this Roland Garros is very open, but it will speak in spanish for sure".


“Safin es muy peligroso, Moyá es recontra peligroso. Federer va a seguir siendo peligroso, y después hay varios jugadores más. Puede haber sorpresas como el año pasado, cuando ni a mí ni a Verkerk nos daban como favoritos y llegamos a semifinales. David (Nalbandian) también. Y más aún porque tuvo dos semanas para prepararse bien, y es un jugador siempre peligroso. Lo demostró en Roma. Yo creo que este Roland Garros está muy abierto, pero hablará seguro en castellano”.

Re: NEWS

Hi all - well here in Paris it is warm and sunny so far - hope it stays that way and not cold and miserable like Hamburg Internet access from my Hotel seems OK, - so when I can drag myself away from the bar (!) I will check in here to up-date yu when I can. Nothing much to report yet though - tomorrow is Charity Day at Roland Garros - loads of competitions and exhibitions and stuff for kids, plus the chance to watch some practice - I'm looking forward to it before all the stressful stuff starts!

Love to all,

Rosie

Re: NEWS

The prestigious French newspaper L'Equipe, published today a long article about Argentinian tennis, where it analyses why Argentina keeps having first level tennis players, distinguishing interviews with Guillermo Coria and David Nalbandian.

Apart from those interviews with Coria and Nalbandian, with pictures of David's house in Unquillo, the article compares the precarious organization of the AAT (Argentine's Tennis Association), with the powerful French Tennis Federation (FET), which gives millions of euros for players development.
