Re: 2006 Davis Cup Thread

Vale is always happy to share translations with people as long as she is acknowledged for doing 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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Vamos, la Legion Argentina!

[as for that article re: DC... I say let Stan prove himself for SUI -- a great opportunity for him to shine without the No 1 guy -- after all, he says HE can beat Fed AND he apparently cheered for Baggy at the AO06 F... ALLEZ, LA SUISSE! what does it matter when SUI barely has a chance to win DC?]

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Re: 2006 Davis Cup Thread

I was SURE that the word "crack" existed in English to denote a star player, but I suddenly doubted my memory so I consulted my very complete dictionary! Among the many meanings, I found this one:
Crack: champion, excellent player. Also: excellent, superior, first rate.
In fact, I think the Argentines borrowed the English word and turned it into "crac"!

Re: 2006 Davis Cup Thread

Vale, I've never really heard the word "crack" used in English the way it's used in French or Spanish... I guess we w say "ace" or "champion". Interesting word I've always thought anyway. In fact, when I hear "crack" I think cocaine!

Re: 2006 Davis Cup Thread

*Crack* has been used here in the UK to describe someone who's good at something......but as RF said more recently its use is pretty much confined to being a slang word for cocaine. Hope that helps?

Thanks, Sue! I guess it's the same case as the word "gay": it's latest meaning has superseded all the previous ones...

Re: 2006 Davis Cup Thread

Chucho

An excellent performance from the number 2 and gave ToJo and absolute hiding 6-1 6-1 6-3 and now the Argentines have a 2-0 lead after Nalle was able to do enough to beat the toad.

Only one more match to go guys before a potential quarter final with Croatia, but this is a good thing and there should be competition for places in the Argentine team.

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: 2006 Davis Cup Thread

Well done team Argentina. Great news to wake up to. I can see the famous smiley is out again. I'm rooting for Argentina in this tie, but can I comfort ToJo, especially after the smiley treatment. Must be painful......and if the captain wanna join, I don't mind.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Thomas Johansson utklassad av reserv
Publicerad 10 februari 2006 - 20:21
Uppdaterad 10 februari 2006 - 21:08

Den argentinske reserven Jose Acasuso utklassade Thomas Johansson med 6-1,6-1,6-3 och nu är Sverige i brygga inför DC-fortsättningen.

Laget ligger under med 2-0 och nu måste Simon Aspelin/Jonas Björkman vinna morgondagens dubbel för att hålla liv i matchen.

-Det var en kille på banan. Han var mycket bättre än jag idag och hade inget att sätt emot, menar Thomas Johansson enligt TT.

Mats Wilander menade efter matchen att Jose Acasuso är bäst i världen.


Thomas Johansson outclassed by replacement

The Argentine reserve Jose Acasuso outclassed Thomas Johansson 6-1 6-1 6-3 and now Sweden are in the bridge about DC continuation

The team is down 2-0 and Simon Aspelin/Jonas Björkman must now win tomorrows doubles to keep alive in the match.

"There was a guy on court. Today, he was much better than me and had nothing to stand up against", believed Thomas Johansson according to TT

Mats Wilander believed "after the match that Jose Acasuso is the best in the world".

I like Chucho, but that's funny.

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".

Good for Gaston and Guillermo Coria that (yesterday and today respectively) watched the match and supported the team.

I didn´t see Gastón yesterday because I was at work and TyC didn´t repeat the matches. But Coria today was VERY MUCH in evidence!

It was a great day, anyway! Perfect weather, not overly hot, a wonderful public, and Calleri the better of the two this time.
Tomorrow the dead rubbers will be played by Chela against Johansson and Acasuso against Soderling.

Re: 2006 Davis Cup Thread

Good 5-0 win to Argentina.

The big test is coming though.

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".
