Re: That Stoke Park Exhibition in London This Week

If Nalbandian is playing in this exhibition, it seems he certainly will be playing at Wimbledon. That should be good news for his fans.

Poor Poo. He's having a dreadful time since the great Davis Cup victory last year.

Re: That Stoke Park Exhibition in London This Week

It's funny that they have the schedule up but no draw

some of those people are only playing an exho match though not in the 8-player draw. These people don't seem too with it, actually LOL

It's west of London - and yes - we are not so far from the Thames (my garden leads down to the Thames actually), - and yes - we are a lovely, leafy English suburb

Re: Stoke Park Exo (Ljubicic beats Moya and Goran wins)

But it also says Winner Philippoussis

It doesn't mention Nalbandian/Lopez anywhere, dunno what happened with that one.

Nalbandian and Lopez will be busy combing their hairs on a top-models event sponsored by Pantene Pro V.
