TMS Madrid



Hi, this is my first post on the Spanish Armada

Anyone going to the Tennis Masters Madrid?

Should be interesting for the Spanish guys.

I'm rooting for my fave Spaniard, Alex Corretja, and for Juanqui, Tommy R, Carlos and Albert.

I wonder what activities they'll have for the players... testing their bullfighting skills, perhaps, or a sangria drinking contest??!!

VAMOS, ESPANOLES!

I'm not sure: I'm either going to that or the Fed Cup final in Gran Canaria. I'm sure the better tennis will be in Madrid, but I'm torn cos I reckon Sanchez-Vicario will retire after the Fed Cup and I wanna see her last match...

When exactly is the Fed Cup? Is Arantxa really going to retire after Fed Cup? How do you know? That would be so sad! I love her too! She's the BEST female Spanish player ever!

I know, she was the player that first got me interested in tennis (and in a way, I suppose, Spain) about 15 years ago...

FedCup is two weeks after the Madrid tourney; the last weekend of October. Nothing has been said about Arantxa retiring, but I just have a feeling she'd like to go out on a winning note, and that if she were to lead Spain to victory, she might be tempted to call it a day there...I hope not, but I wouldnt be surprised.

If anyone IS going to TM Madrid, pls post adventures and photos, esp. of the Spanish guys! I'd really love Alex Corretja to have a great run there altho he doesn't do well in Espana -- what about Juanqui then? He needs another big win.

JonBcn:

If Arantxa were to retire, don't you think someone somewhere w/do sth special for her? Better check out the Hola! mag...

(Is she considered part of the Spanish Armada?)

Hi Claudine!

So you're a Moya fan? He's done really well this year so far -- good for him! (He was playing well in Toronto before Rios beat him!)

Do you or anyone know if Alex is playing a tournament just before Madrid, i.e., Lyon or Vienna???

Would be nice if a Spaniard won Madrid...

Mrs. B. you must be asleep by now! Check this out when you wake up! I love when Alex is pumped! VAMOS!! This was probably taken when he beat Rogi at RG01 -- he did say "VAMOS!"

Corretja plays in Hong Kong that is for sure, the rest I don't know, but I do know the spanjards are travelling together, and Moyke is playing in Tokyo, so I think Corretja will play there too.
But I am not sure of it.
