//copy of my DC report from Marat's thread and some additions about Misha//
yes Russia leads 2-0
and i've already lost my voice because of the shouting and screaming "Russia go!" "Maraaaat!" "Misha!"
before the match players were introduced to the audience and the presenter said: "Andy Roddick was born 1902
, oh sorry.. 1982!"
Marat played in his usual style, many brilliant points, many stupid errors. Roddick was crazy about the court and clay and said all what he thought about it
I don't know why but I felt a little
at that match, Youzhny-Blake was more exciting. Blake was annoyed by everything: the court, the umpire, the audience. The whole stadium shouted "MISHA! MISHA!", Youzhny seemed to be very pleased with this but not Blake
1st and 2nd set began with the same score 0-3 Blake leading, in 1st Misha fought back great and made it 7-5, but in 2nd he lost 6-1...
in the 3rd Blake seemed to be over, and I was sure he's going to be bageled in 4th... but great fight again until Misha broke Blake to lead 6-5 and served the match out
The others: I won't recognized Andreev if I've not seen his new photos... wow, a cute blond lady with long hair under the funny cap
Korolev was the only one who cheered up Marat and Misha all time... such a good boy
Dima was loitering around the stadium... when he came back during Misha's match, I didn't watch the game anymore but stared at the stands. Igor and Dima made a garland or crown from the flowers which were given to them at the opening ceremony, and then they all (Igor, Dima, Marat, Kolya) tried on this yellow flower crown... it was awesome!
(some pics are in Marat's thread)
to the stadium to see doubles, Mitya and Misha against twins
but who know what kind of tennis poker Tarpischev's going to play today.. I won't be suprised to see Marat or Kolya... or even Korolev
who ever it may be I hope they'll crush Bryans
