Allez Nole! Le jour de gloire est arrivé! Marseille Cheering Thread. Semi v Tsonga

NOLE IN MARSEILLE

ATP 250 Event - http://www.open13.fr/


Last time I went to Marseille, some guy along the quayside wanted to "buy" me in return for a battered old Mercedes Luckily my ex refused the offer - though he said he may have reconsidered if the car had been new Maybe that's why he's my "ex"?

Anyway - I digress - Nole will play in Marseille week starting 16th February. It will be his first tournament since the AO. Let's hope he has had time to regroup and practice hard, and I wish him all the best to go deep into this tournament.

Have to admit that normally when I start a thread he loses in the 2nd round - so if he goes further I'll consider it a great personal success

Re: Allez Nole! Le jour de gloire est arrivé! Marseille Cheering Thread..

Looks like a few of the usual suspects will be there.

1 Djokovic, Novak SRB 3
2 Murray, Andy GBR 4
3 Simon, Gilles FRA 6
4 Tsonga, Jo-Wilfried FRA 7
5 Monfils, Gael FRA 13
6 Berdych, Tomas CZE 20
7 Gasquet, Richard FRA 23
8 Tursunov, Dmitry RUS 24
9 Cilic, Marin CRO 27
10 Lopez, Feliciano ESP 30
11 Mathieu, Paul-Henri FRA 31
12 Melzer, Jurgen AUT 32
13 Schuettler, Rainer GER 33
14 Seppi, Andreas ITA 34
15 Ancic, Mario CRO 35
16 Bolelli, Simone ITA 38
17 Youzhny, Mikhail RUS 39
18 Benneteau, Julien FRA 40
19 Hanescu, Victor ROU 48
20 Gicquel, Marc FRA 50
21 Santoro, Fabrice FRA 51
22 Llodra, Michael FRA 54
23 Ljubicic, Ivan CRO 58
WC Safin, Marat RUS 27

At least he can't play Tsonga until the SFs and Murray until the final.

It'll be good just to see him again since he's been like a ghost since the AO.

Good luck Nole!

Ah - so here we have the significance of the Marseille photo

..Qu'un sang impur abreuve nos sillons! (mais de préférence pas de Nole)

Yes - I was practicing Thought it was better to practice in our thread than mess up one I started here

And I would prefer it not to be Nole's too. Guess you're already excited to see JWT back here in Europe - and in his home country too

At least he enters in this tournament with a valid excuse.
Hopefully it helps to lift a burden from him.

Allez Nole!!

Hadn't thought of it that way Wouldn't he feel bad if he lost in the 1st round though?

The whole of the Marsellaise is well dodgy, lyrics-wise - you can't pin nuffin' on me guv! I plead Rouget de Lisle...

Has Nole ever won a tournament where he's been the #1 seed?

Most anthems are I think Date back to our not-so-glorious pasts

As to the Number 1 seed thing - erm - not sure - but I think you may be right

Edit: Timmy is right and I am wrong Thanks Timmy

As most of you already know, I like JWT and Andy M but I don't think I can handle Nole losing to them again.

Take a bow So we do at least have a precedent there. But perhaps I should re-phrase the question to ask if he's ever won a tournament as #1 seed where JWT has been playing?

I will take lessons in learning to love JWT from you. Please list his good points and tell me why I should love and cherish him?

Andy M is no problem - I have to like him; he's an awkward Scottish cuss like me.

Anyway, It seems like Nole always goes with Jo in MM tournament from 08 AO.
(except in Queen's Club, when Jo was injured.)
I don't like it at all.
