Hmmm a win is a win. I would love me a barbie at the mo- freezing and a rather pretty snowstorm......

Linda: not I'm not related to Nalby and the UK is not barbie-friendly right now

I think David probably plays doubs for practice more than anything else and a bit of fun perhaps? Mind you, he does have a couple of doubles titles, doesn't he? From his early days (with Santiago Ventura). Awww... David and Tommy on court together

Oh yes, belated Happy Birthday to Javi for the 9th.....
Oh no another Tommy lover ........ What is wrong with you women?

Btw, he does have a few doubs titles, two or three. But it's a long time ago he won anything in the doubs comp.

Another one for a barbie. We can have one at my house. The temp here is more bbq friendly.

Good luck tomorrow, David! I'm of German descent but like a lot of Spanish players.

Re: Auckland Heineken Open - We all know David loves cerveza

Hi! I know I'm guilty of not coming on this thread that frequently. Happy (belated) New Year to all his fans. I'm happy for Davids success in this event so far. Here is his latest press conference

Re: Auckland Heineken Open - We all know David loves cerveza

Thanks for the link iram. Whew... he looks sooo tired there. I know the players are obliged to do pressers, but the poor guy looks like he's just come off court and pulled a new t-shirt on! Whatever - he still looks 200% HOT

He, he - Linda, I like Tommy, but I absolutely adore hot and feisty gorgeous Ferru

And he was right - it was another toughie against Kohlschrieber, pity he couldn't have got the tiebreak, but he won and yes, a win is a win!! A clash with Nalby looks ever closer (perhaps I'd better go and force feed him those mussels )

Do we actually have any Spanish fans of David on this forum? I think we are all from places where the men are paler and taller.

That's probably why most players aren't big fans of doing pressers. And answering the same questions over and over again. I do think that David looks a lot more relaxed than he used to. He was always sooooooooo shy.

Ferrer Wins Meeting Of Past Champs

In a quarter-final meeting between past Heineken Open champions, top seed David Ferrer prevailed against eighth seed Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3, 6-7(4), 6-3 in two hours and 43 minutes Thursday.

Ferrer, the 2007 winner, went up a decisive break at 4-2 in the third set as he proceeded to defeat 2008 titlist Kohlschreiber for the sixth time in nine encounters. The two champions were also supposed to face off in the quarter-finals two years ago at this ATP World Tour 250 tennis tournament when Kohlschreiber withdrew prior to the match with a shoulder injury.

World No. 7 Ferrer, who contested five finals in 2010, will face Santiago Giraldo in the semi-finals after the Colombian caused a second upset in as many days as he ousted seventh-seeded Brazilian Thomaz Bellucci 6-2, 6-4 in 78 minutes. In the second round he had defeated fourth seed Albert Montanes.

The No. 64-ranked Giraldo, who broke into the Top 100 last year, reached the quarter-finals at the Brisbane International (l. to Anderson) to start the 2011 ATP World Tour season last week.

Welcome here, iram And thanks soooooo much for the link to the press conference I agree that our chico looks tired, but still sooooooo hot

And Linda, I also think we don´t have spanish people here on the forum, at least no regular posters, maybe we can attract some

Good luck Ferru for the semifinal Would love to watch it, but have to be early at work tomorrow So I am hoping for the final

Tommy Robredo David Ferrer Pere Riba Fernando Verdasco

Re: Auckland Heineken Open - We all know David loves cerveza

Good match from David 6-3 7-5. Will have to work a lot harder tomorrow against big Dave. Looking forward to it though. Should be an entertaining match to watch.

Carol have you got Nalbi's portion of mussels ready?

Re: Auckland Heineken Open - We all know David loves cerveza

Hi. I just wanted to thank you all for your warm welcome. I do come to this section sometimes to see updates from time to time. You ALL sound so friendly and joyful. I will make a better attempt this year to be on mens forum. (you can tell by my # of posts I am not frequent here) My husband only cheers on Federer so it's hard for me to discuss Ferrers matches with him.

Secondly, I don't mean to "bombard" this thread with David videos (and I'll stop if they are not wanted) but I saw this video and loved it. Just watch it. (I love his flipflops-they're cool but limit the challenge given to him)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr-xB...layer_embedded

I really hope he wins tomorrow in the Battle of Davids. Have a lovely weekend. (I know this sounds like a dumb ?, but does anyone else like his flipflops?)

Re: Auckland Heineken Open - We all know David loves cerveza

Ohhhh how sweet is he here? This made me giggle so much! Plus a lovely sight of THOSE LEGS Ha! He'd have done much better if he'd taken the flip-flops off!

Thanks for posting it Iram. David's always game for these extra events isn't he?

Remember the pink flip flops from the 2010 Elle photoshoot?

Yup, I got the mussels ready! The oop is out and the Davids' match starts "not before 2pm" after the doubles final (VAMOS Tommy & Marcel for that one!). At least David had an easier match with Giraldo and he'll be able to get some rest in.

Re: Auckland Heineken Open - We all know David loves cerveza

So much more comfortable in interviews now that his english is a wee bit better Cute. And Iram ( do you have a name you like to be called? ) videos are just fine. And I have a hubby and kids who think watching tennis is for the birds They have no favs. Both kids play it although not very well. And at one point they were cheering on my fav doubles team but those days are long gone
