It looked like a hard fought match. Berdych is good and let's not forget this is clay and that isn't Nicolas's best surface. He did quite well I think.
I think who is letting the team down is Tommy. Yes, he had the great doubles win but his is losing badly to Zib, someone who he should beat. Maybe Tommy shouldn't play the doubles, it's too much to ask for playing all 3 days. Maybe Rainer and Alexander should play the doubles
Karine, thanks for all the thoughts during the hurricane. It took a turn for the east, so Austin was spared. All we got was million people from Houston come into town. Plus, we have this huge 3 day concert in town plus the original Katrina evacuees, so between all that, traffic is horrible, no gas, no food at the stores. I can't wait for all these people to leave
