The 2005 Season in review:
  • 2 doubles titles with Santi Ventura
    SF Viña del Mar
    Finalist in Valencia
    SF Miami, Roma
    QF Monte Carlo, Madrid (defeated Top 10 player Puerta), Paris (held 2 MPs against World No 3 Roddick)
    QF Roland Garros (defeated defending champ and Top 10 player Gaudio)
    QF Umag
    SF New Haven
    3rd Round US Open
    Called up onto Davis Cup squad for 1st time DC playoffs at Italy but DNP
    Lost to World No 1 Federer in Doha; lost to World No 2 Nadal at Miami, Roma, and Roland Garros
    Scored 100th career win
    Singles record: 43-29
    Doubles record: 18-15
    Reached career high singles ranking of 13 on September 12th
    Reached career high doubles ranking of 42 on October 24th
    Moved 34 places in the entry ranking, from 49 at the beginning of the year to 15.

Buen trabajo, bien hecho David!

What I hope the next year will bring:

1. 4th Round AO. He will be seeded so he won't be facing Nalbandian in the 1st round again.

2. A singles title. He's much too good and improved to go away empty handed again.

3. Playing a DC rubber. He's been the 2nd ranked Spaniard for most of the year.

4. SF at RG. Hopefully Rafa will be on the other side of the draw.

5. Win a match at Wimbledon.

6. 4th Round USO. He should have taken Hrbaty down this year.

(in general)

7. No more DFs allowed in matches against Top 10 players. No coincidence he DFed in both service games Roddick broke him.

8. Successfully serve for matches. Close out all opponents on 1st or 2nd MP.

9. Don't lose focus - use intensity as an advantage.

10. Play more off clay.

It's too bad you don't allow people to send you pms so i have to ask you here.
I will go to Barcelona, in fact that's not 100% sure but i have started to look for young hostels there. Did you already go there?
Of course my own schedule depends on where Gaston will go next year

Re: ~*~ The Off Season Hopes: David will rock in 2006 thread ~*~

I go to Barcelona every other year it is a very good tournament the only problem is the big hill you have walk every morning.

Elea I think there is a hostel near to the Ramblas but I've no idea what it is like try and stay close to the green metro line because that takes you to the Maria Christina metro station which is the station for the Real Tennis Club.

hope this helps.

Re: ~*~ The Off Season Hopes: David will rock in 2006 thread ~*~

I read an article yesterday that David has committed to Auckland.

My gut is telling me he'll probably be playing the South/Latin American clay swing instead of the indoor European one after the AO. I just hope he takes at least one of those events off - he needs to have energy left for IW & Miami.

I'm not sure what tournaments I'm going to next year except Cincinnati, which is a given since I live about 10 minutes away. I'd love to see a clay event, leaning towards either Costa do Saiupe or Acapulco, will depend on whether I can find affordable airfare or not. My goal at the very least is to go to the US Open, I've never been to my home slam before.

Titles: 2005 - PAW Washington 2006 - PTS Marseille, TT Miami Doubles(w/coreyschucky), TT Tokyo Singles 2007 - TT Hamburg Doubles(w/SarettaFan) 2008 - TT Indianapolis Singles Finalist: 2005 - PAW Montreal & Bucharest 2006 - TT Acapulco Singles & Doubles(w/Iza), TT Houston Doubles(w/robrulz5), PTS Monte Carlo, TT Barcelona Doubles(w/Peta Pan), TT Newport Doubles(w/adee-gee), PAW Umag 2007 - TT Queen's Singles & Doubles(w/SarettaFan), TT Champaign Doubles(w/TommyB.) 2008 - TT Auckland Doubles(w/invu2day), TT Recanati Singles, TT Newport Doubles(w/sploush), TT Indianapolis Doubles(w/sploush)

I know someone who' s been to Acapulco and she absolutely LOVED it there. If you do decide to go there- please take lots of pics for us ? And good luck with your goal of getting to the USO as well!

Now come on Sue - you KNOW you want to go to all 3 You and I have just got to get together again at one of these damn tourneys next year!!!!! I will almost certainly be in Stuttgart, Barca and RG - and no doubt a few others as well As for my wishes for David..........well..........

(1) Consolidate his position in the Top 20 and (hopefully) rise to the Top 10.

(2) Win a title - preferaby one that i can watch live!!

(3) Play a DC rubber.

David's not on the entry lists for Doha, Chennai, nor Adelaide. Guess he's decided to take an extra week off before beginning his 2006 season in Auckland.

I'll try my best to take lots of pictures at all tournament(s) I attend next year.
