If you think I'm a bandwagon jumper, you're making a big, BIG mistake. I've been rooting for Fed since 2002, and for Rafa since 2004. Besides that, if you've taken notice of my siggie, you might have noticed quite a few players being mentioned there not doing well at all lately.

Re: madrid

FLo's serve to the AD court saved him so many times on BP down. It's a LOT harder to win points returning from the AD side if you are facing a lefty than from the deuce court. Federer hasn't been broken yet this tournament which is always a good sign, even if he did play Ginepri and Lopez as two of his opponents.

Nah, I'm just kidding. Seems almost everyone in GM yesterday was jumping on the Nalby bandwagon (or maybe it was just his fans coming out of hiding).

it just shows you how far nadal has come and how low nalbandian has gone.

Yeah, Nalby is most definitely Bandwagon player of the Month! But well, eh, happens to everyone who manages to beat (or in this case, I'd rather say 'destruct') either Raf or Rogi. I wonder how much time it'll take for Djoko to share in that 'pleasure' as well.

spot on.

Okay, for now: GOOD LUCK Rogi on your semifinal match!
I'll be watching again. Hasn't done him much harm till now.

Re: madrid

Yep, good luck to Roger in the semis against Kiefer - could be difficult judging from their previous matches, but Roger's been playing well thus far

The resurgence of Nalbandian continues - up a set...this could be interesting.

Re: madrid

Nalbandian won. One of the commentators said Djokovic looked as flat as a pancake out there.

Re: madrid

With Nadal and Djoko both gone can Rog secure the nr1 ranking for the year with a win in Madrid ?

Re: madrid

It's a little funny how easy fat, lacking match preparation Nalby dealt with The Real no1 and the self proclaimled No1.
