Which is good as at least it's still Sunday and not a weekday, so I can see his first match Ajde Nole!

He retired injured from Paris - something to do with his knees. He says he withdrew from TMC because the knees are still sore, though many people think it's just because he's playing in the DC Final in Argentina just a week after TMC, and he would rather be fully fit and rested for Davis Cup, than risk aggravating the injury in the TMC and not being able to take part. No idea which is the correct reason ( and being a b*tch I could care even less - would far rather see Simon in Shanghai anyway ).

Thanks Rose

I knew he retired in paris but I never thought he would choose not to play TMC, it's such an important tournament.

Well I guess it depends on which way you look at it Maybe he feels that winning DC for the team and for his country is more important Spain sure as hell won't have a chance to win in Argentina without him, so if he genuinely IS injured, then he might feel he was letting everyone down if he did anything to jeopardise his appearance there

Re: Nole at The Masters Cup - Shanghai Surprise?

Don't forget the DC - he'd rather win that I guess and I'd rather he did.

Anyway, so first match Sunday - good. I think I may be struck down with something nasty Tuesday morning.

Re: Nole at The Masters Cup - Shanghai Surprise?

Hi Guys, thought I'd pop it to wish Nole good luck against JMDP Haven't been around lately but wanted to wish him good luck. Hopefully it'll be better than last year not that it can be that much worse

As for Rafa: I'd rather see him win DC than TMC. He'll have more chance winning DC anyway

Re: Nole at The Masters Cup - Shanghai Surprise?

The draw couldn't be any simpler for Nole. I'm glad that he gets to go on court first, and that too against Del Potro, which should be a good match-up. Prepping myself to enjoy it, regardless of how Nole plays.

I think EST is 5 hours behind us here in the UK - so would be 1.00am Saturday night/Sunday morning for you

That's great Rose.

Even though 2 pm in Shanghai is also 2 pm here, I won't be able to watch his first match because we are going out of town.


Cheer Nole for me

Re: Nole at The Masters Cup - Shanghai Surprise?

It seems that the funny/odd/inappropriate questions that have become the norm in Shanghai pressers have already begun. Someone on the WTA/Tennis site (lilinshan) translated this exchange:

Shanghai Tennis Master Cup

Journalist: If, I mean if, the three beauties, Sharapova, Ivanovic and Jankovic unluckily fall into water at the same time, which beauty would you choose to save first?

Novak: Pushing the three beauties into water, you just made a huge trouble, I would do my utmost to save the three.(laugh)


Great answer to a stupid question Nole!
