Congrats to Volandri, but I really expected more from Robredo. I'm guessing the burden will again fall on Rafa's shoulders........

Good the tie goes to the 3rd day at least.

It'd be fantastic to see Seppi win, but it won't happen.

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".

As long as Italy can win all the non-Nadal matches, who knows?

Italy have a good doubles team. It could be 2-1 to them by the end of Saturday.

Life is empty and meaningless. It is in emptiness that we create possibilities for extraordinary results

Yeah poor Rafael, I wonder if they still make him play the dubs tomorrow too.
And Tommy, Tommy!

Ditto.

What to believe in, it's impossible to say?
What to believe in when they change your name, wash your brain, play the game again, yeah, yeah, yeah...

I just wish Seppi was in better form at the moment, though I hope he shows the DC spirit lke he did last year.

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".

Robredo is a joke compared to previous Spanish guys

like Costa, Corretja, Moya, Ferrero and now Nadal.

he might be top 10 but has he ever won when it counts ?

You forgot Bruguera, Carlos Costa, Berasategui and Mantilla.

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".
