Calling Houston, Calling Houston

I have just checked the Houston tournament web site and Willy is playing.

Bad news is he has drawn Blake in the first round. His match is on Tuesday. As this is a clay tournament I am so hoping for a win.

Re: Calling Houston, Calling Houston

I can't believe his luck, ok I know his ranking has dropped and everything but seriously, he had 30 other players and he draws Blake .

Hoping Blake would be having a bad day on tuesday, not to seem pessimistic but he did defeat him last year in the World team Cup (on Clay).

Re: Calling Houston, Calling Houston

Unfortunately, with the current ranking he's likely to draw better players for 1st rounds...
I'm afraid Blake will be hard to beat but I'm hoping for the best.

Come on Willy!

OMG Willy took out the top seed, James Blake 6-4 6-4. He was serving for the match and I think he was getting nervous as he went down 0-40 but finally managed to pull it off.

This has made my day. Congrats to the Willstar

Some pictures from today's practice. Sorry they are kind of big. Probably should have cropped them, but I think he looks better this way...

I am not sure at this point, but I surely would love to see him again.

Re: Calling Houston, Calling Houston

WoooooW This is a very good win, and this is the silver lining of drawing the 1st seed if you manage to get him out the draw opens pretty nicely, hope he continues this way.

Also, thanks for the photos, they are great.

Re: Calling Houston, Calling Houston

Also Sam Q is not playing, I didn't realised that Willy has dropped to No. 113.

Re: Calling Houston, Calling Houston

I take that back as I have just checked the rankings and he is at No.89. Fox Sports Australia got it wrong.
