Re: things to look forward to....

Thanks.
Yes, we need more cheering up. I'm depressed at not seeing much good tennis over here in the US right now on televison. Could do with a few Federer matches.

Re: things to look forward to....

You forgot what will possibly the best ever match at the Barcelona tournament.

Kenneth Carlsen v P SRICHAPHAN (THA) (15) (WC)

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: things to look forward to....

I am going to email some friends who'll be at that tournament and I want a report that would almost be as funny as Fish/Ginepri in Houston.

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".

It should have gone to Titi Rascon.

This is just getting sillier.

Fish vs Ginepri on clay along with Carlsen vs Srichaphan this definitely has vaudeville written all over it.

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: things to look forward to....

im looking forward to a great JCF week after his good run Monte Carlo!!!

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?

JEFF TARANGO: To say what? "Welcome to the locker room. Don't bend over for the soap."
