Hamburg 2008 thread---SF loss to Nadal 5-7, 6-2, 2-6 in 3 hours 3 minutes



This is the mayor, or Bürgermeister, of Hamburg.

He says, "Sorry about the tough draw, Novak."

Let's hope we don't see a second round exit, like he is wont to do after winning the week before.

It's not easy to do well the week after taking the trophy,

but I think those two easy matches in the Rome QF and SF should mean the Novak is not so tired.

Re: It's wet. It's cold. It's Hamburg.

I want Nole-Janko QF

Anyway if it doesn't happen here, I hope it will soon (in some way it's stupid to wish that, cause one of them would go out, but still, I can't wait to see them play eachother, in later stages of tournaments of course)

Good luck Nole, you Romeo!



Janko Tipsarević


Novak Đoković | Roger Federer | Marcos Baghdatis | Mikhail Youzhny | Andy Murray | Grigor Dimitrov | Juan Martin Del Potro

I actually cannot see how can he lose against Chela, but I can see it vs Robredo or Kohlschreiber.
Anyway...you're right...he shouldn't be too tired, but I'm sure that he won't risk too much

Yes title is great, and I the Bürgermeister

Strangely it isn't wet and cold in Hamburg at the moment though - I guess it's because I'm not there this year, because whenever I go it rains constantly My friends who are there tell me it is 26 C and players are shirtless - just my luck to be missing it

Anyway - good luck Nole - you can do it - believe in yourself and go get that Number 2 spot

I think rain will come later this week. We should have rain in France so I guess it will be the same in Germany.
It's not as sure as when I can predict RG rain delays when I'm at my parents place tho. Usually when it rains there, it rains 20min later at Porte d'Auteuil.

LOL - I can do exactly the same with Wimbledon. I am slightly west of Wimby, and weather fronts usually go from west to east here, so whatever rain I get, - they get it about 10-15 minutes later I think we're due to get rain here this week on Thursday, so probably looks set for a rainy Finals weekend in Hamburg

Why? What's wrong with him? Do you have something against him?

Oh, yes, and thanks for agreeing not to hurt me.

Don't be upset No - I don't like him much to be honest But I don't have anything specifically against him - he just doesn't "do it" for me if you know what I mean - not his game, his appearance, or his personality Each to their own though Life would be very boring if we all felt the same and liked the same people. How long have you been supporting him?
