Bravo Olie

If you are conceited about your glory,why don't you feed the earth for a day?
and if you are conceited about your power, why did your desires control
you one day?

I bow down to Olivier ROCHUS.

GUCCIONE hit 26 aces over 4 sets as well!

Ollie often does well against these tall, ace hitting machines.

What a brilliant start for Belgium!

But Guccione had 22 of his aces by the time the third set was 3-2* Rochus so he slowed down his ace count at the end.

Olivier proves that the better tennis player always wins, Regardless of 6ft10 220lb+ ace specialists that try to mentally wear down their opponents via the 26 aces they use.
Why did The Aussie tennis federation choose Guccione anyway? He is just a glorified ace machine used to intimidate and exploit the weaknesses of mentally vulnerable opponents. He should go back to bullying journeymen on the challenger circuit and let the REAL tennis players play the game.


Is he Ivo karlovic's twin!??

I can't explain it rationally,and although i think it is pretty cool that Belgium leads 2-0,i still can't be bothered with davis cup though.
I just don't care about it.
I like it when the belgians do well in grand slams,but davis cup or fed cup,not important in my opinion.
But i realise it is a big thing for many people,so it is nice to see if we get some great match ups in the next rounds

Well done Ollie, if Guccione had of taken one of those many bp's he had in the second set, would of been interesting to see where this could of gone. rochus was just too good at returning serve in the last 2 sets.
