Paulo on ice. Vamos indoor season!

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~+++

Karanusic... He isn't playing too bad! Anything can happen at this point, still... hope it's a good thing

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

Playing vs Croat in Zagreb must be not an easy thing, I guess... Paulo was losing 1-3 in the third set, gosh! (and leading with a break in the first)
Hernych is next

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

Hmmmmm, one of those days again He doesn't have the momentum with him at the moment. Every match can be a struggle. Honestly, I thought he was very lucky to get away with that first round win. Maybe he AND Loic are still in that transitional phase; new coach, new training methods and all. (Some people do take a little more time. Normal variation ) They have to build up the communication which might not be easy consider Loic is new to the ATP and Paulo is new to Loic's style.

So anyway, keep your head up high, Paulo! It'll get better once you got it all figure out. You have plenty of time for that And maybe, just maybe, you should tone down the James Blunt... it can be very depressing!

Let your goal be having "fun" in what you're doing! We, the fans, want nothing in the world than to see that.

James Blunt I haven't listened to his music in quite awhile.

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
