My Anna is in the red leggings.

Raquel, I think they said that woman is from Hungary.
Hungary I thought it was an Eastern Europe accent.

I think Dubai to IW is a nicer transition.

Of course. Heck, the one time I´ve seen him play live was when he played there in 2010. Of course he lost

I agree that it´s better for his schedule he doesn´t play there, but I´d like it if he did for my own selfish reasons, that is, so that I can watch him

I've seen a couple of dispiriting losses. The 2010 one at IW was the absolute worst. Depressing even.

But then look how he turned things around.

So, what happened to Klizan?

I heard he was injured, but missed what it was.

Playing Simon can be brutal.

Re: Look, you know, our draws are not rigged they are just unlikely. (pt3)

I never saw Nole lose. And I have watched him play many times.

Ok I have seen half a loss. I watched him play Rafa in Madrid in 2009... that painful match. But I had to leave when the 3rd set was 2-2, or something like that, because I had to run to the airport in order not to lose my flight... so I didn't really watch him lose. It was a marathon, I ran (subway) from the tennis center to the hostel to get my bag, then got on the subway again to the airport. This takes like an hour. During this I had my sister texting me the score everytime someone won a game. And then when TB started, I ordered her text me every point. When she told me he had lost, I started crying in the middle of the airport.

Well, I hope I´ll be able to catch one of the two tournaments there this year, but up until now I never really had the money (and yes, that has a lot to do with the fact that I tend to spend the little I have on frivolities).

That was gutwrenching on the tv, never mind like this, with the partisan Madrileno audience and all.

Ok I counted, I didn't watch him play that many matches. 8 single matches and 2 or 3 doubles matches.

Looks like cramping to me. Took lots of energy to save all those BPs.

btw, thanks for the link!

Ohhhhhhh

That was a match either could have won. I think now Nole would win simply because of confidence.

This is the peak of Nole's career and all fans should enjoy it and revel in it. It lasts such a short time for a tennis player.

Lucky for Nole, Rafa, and Murray that the next crop of youngsters is sort of blah.

Talking about the generation right before Filip and Alex, of course.

I think travelling to tournaments is cheaper in Europe than in North America and the tickets are cheaper, right?
