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

What a great win for Paulo..he played great at the end of the second set and in the third. That win over a high ranked player has made me extremely happy Paulo needed a win like that and hopefully it has given him some extra confidence

Just came to say congrats to Paulo fans. Watched the whole match and it was high quality, was really impressed by the turnaround. I hope he keeps up this form.

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

Paulo was having some abdominal problems... I'm not quite sure whether it was a muscle pain or something else. He called a trainer at 3-2 second set, but after that managed to break Llodra at love (Mika was leading with a break) to level 3-3.
Paulo played quite good overall, just missed the most important points.

A two weeks break now?

Most likely Indian Wells. I'm not sure what is happening with Davis Cup, but I'm not exactly expecting Paulo to be on the team He deserves a break anyway...He's done a lot of traveling and has had some nice wins, I'm sure he could use some rest

Yes, I would be surprised if he was picked for DC. Still, he probably had enough of it last year to last him a lifetime anyway.

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

It's been a while since he strings two wins together... Loic needs to work harder

Judging from current performances and rankings, spots in the team have been filled. I have always liked Davis Cup and I know that Paulo does, too, despite all the "incidences" He wouldn't have skipped this DC thing if he had the choice. Now he has no choice I think it's good that he has some time to himself, for once
