Re: •<• Grasscourt Season 2009 •>•

You're welcome. Pics are coming soon, I promise. They're not exciting but he looks great!

Don't get me started on Gulbis' form lately.

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: •<• Grasscourt Season 2009 •>•

Thanks for the report, Jenny!

The news about Paulo's FH and serve sound pretty good. As for his net game... I wonder why Paulo doesn't play doubles here

His match against Ferrero is scheduled third on Court 1 (so probably no livestream ).

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

I'm generally happy about his form at the moment, other than the game where he got broken in the 1st set which was quite inexplicable brain freeze with a couple of dumped FH's into the net, he played at a good level. His BH DTL was on fire and his FH was also consistent. Of course Pavel is not the player he was, he doesn't move so well and that meant Paulo could control the rallys better, but Pavel's BH is still really effective and kept him in the match. Paulo also served very well and I think he had 1 volley winner (maybe more ) as well.

I wasn't made uneasy/nervous at any point of the result, which is always a good sign. I really think he can have a good run here.

Some other observations:

- Paulo getting almost hit in the head by Pavel's volley and having to do an emergency duck (unfortunately I don't have footage of this to share ). This is why Paulo is really not just a sitting duck at net, he also is in some danger there.

- Paulo had quite a few loyal supporterswatching the match and cheering for him, I sat next to a few French people who had come to cheer for him. It was fun to not be his lone supporter at Queens for once and he really appreciated the support too, he waved at the end of the match to us (we were on the front row- opposite to the chairs- court 2 only has seats on this side), he never normally waves after matches. So that was nice. I missed his warmup though, so I haven't had a chance to speak with him yet. Hope to go back and see him tomorrow.
Thanks a lot for the report Good luck against JCF, Paulo.

OK, if I can manage to hook into the Transport wifi from Court 1, I will update during Paulo's match on my Twitter.

Lost to Tipsarevic (I didn't even know that he was scheduled to play today )
Seems like a bad serving day, just look at the amount of BPs on Paulo's serve!

Re: •<• Grasscourt Season 2009 •>•

Ouch Paulo.

Oh well, Eastbourne is a place for old and retired people anyway, he just wanted to save me the trip there.

Saving it up for the Big W, of course.

Re: •<• Grasscourt Season 2009 •>•

His hip was bothering him again according to L'Equipe, he says he hadn't taken enough anti-inflammatories before the match and the pain was quite heavy.

Oh no, not the hip again. :worried: Really hope it will be better for Wimbledon.

Thanks for the info, Fran.
