Re: Vamos Outdoor Hardcourt Season 2009

Yes, Paulo played better compared to Hamburg final, Davydenko is in good form atm. And besides, Paulo did better in Rogers Cup this season than in Toronto last year!

The Olympics points fall off next Monday if I'm not mistaken.

Mathieu | Gasquet
Federer
Dimitrov | Ancic | Baghdatis | Eysseric | Herbert

Re: Vamos Outdoor Hardcourt Season 2009

I really feel like Paulo is on the verge of playing really good tennis again, so whilst this result was frustrating and disappointing, it really was an improvement and progress from their Hamburg meeting. Just a shame that he had to meet one of the most in-form players so early on.

Hope for a better draw in Cincy and an improved performance once again, keep at it Paulo.

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?

Re: Vamos Outdoor Hardcourt Season 2009

Cincinnati draw:

Monfils - Karlovic
Zverev - Mathieu
Qualie - Seppi
Bye - Nadal

So this time close to Rafa again (if we get there, of course). This should be fun. Good luck Paulo!

Re: Vamos Outdoor Hardcourt Season 2009

What a rollercoaster match against Zverev, Paulo won from one set down! He's got such a tough draw here... All the best luck in the next round!

What was even nicer, both Paolo and Zverev taking care together of a ballkid who had collapsed in the heat.

Re: Vamos Outdoor Hardcourt Season 2009

Paulo beat Karlovic!!! Paulo saved two SP's in the TB, the only break was in the last game of the match. That's the first time Paulo got two wins in a row in Cincy. Good luck in the next round!!

I missed that, what a nice gesture.


Congrats Paulo on beating big Ivo, seems like it was a much cleaner performance than his 1st rounder.

I hope he gets to play Rafa as well, it's about time he gives him a beating + it's always more fun to Vamos against a Spaniard.

Re: Vamos Outdoor Hardcourt Season 2009

5-7, 2-6 loss to Rafa. The first set was sooo close, Paulo was up 4-1, he played really well, had a clear gameplan, but as it happens... And then Rafa was all up and rolling.
But I want to thank Paulo for his beautiful agressive game, which was very nice to see. I think it's a good sigh before the USO, maybe he'll have a run there. Just keep it up, Paulo!

Re: Vamos Outdoor Hardcourt Season 2009

Yes, Paulo was playing such beautiful tennis at times and he definitely was going about the match the right way with the aggressive gameplan.

I just kept drooling over that BH at times, almost made me forget all the not so good points in the match.

Keep at it, Paulo. I believe in you always.
