Anyway about the tournament...it probably didn't go so well because the draw appeared to be doable. Paulo prefers to surprise us Maybe he was just trying to make the beginning of February a little less "busy" It's still early in the season so there isn't any point in worrying already
"One Of The Brightest Stars" reminds me of Paulo "We always knew that you were one of the brightest stars."

Early indeed. Plenty of time to make something happens

Nice draw in Rotterdam!

The boys are not seeded anymore, this is bound to happen

I hate it when two players I really like get drawn against each other

I'll be rooting more for Paul to win, but I won't mind if Richard does it

Rotterdam looks to be the strongest of all these early-season indoor tourneys

Re: **A Busy February 2009, Back Indoors**

Hmmm, it's probably too late for me to follow the match. Plus, my internet connection is stupidly slow

Hope we'll have a good match

Re: **A Busy February 2009, Back Indoors**

I must be because I don't find it difficult to cheer for Paulo (and only Paulo) during his match against Richie

I like most of the Frenchies (esp. Richard, Gilles, Gael and Nico D) so it's not the happiest match-up for me. It's the players and their lovely fans that make things difficult

I used to have that problem but things changed ...my only issue is when Paulo and Rafa play against each other and I've always ended up cheering for Paulo.

Re: **A Busy February 2009, Back Indoors**

I don't like this match-up.

Paulo's already down a break. 1-3

Judging by the stats, I'm glad I'm missing this- I'm only disappointed because it means Paulo won't make it to TV and I haven't seen him play since Sydney..

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
Allez Gasquet~Mathieu~Wawrinka~Mannarino~+++

Re: **A Busy February 2009, Back Indoors**

Well the 2nd set seems to be of much better quality (although Paulo's 2/16 on 1st serve returns ).

Win this set, Paulo.
(I'm only wishing to prolong the "agony" for myself, why?!!)

Re: **A Busy February 2009, Back Indoors**

My scoreboard froze for most of the 3rd set.

Bravo Paulo!
