***When in Rome..........WIN***

Since there is nothing going on in "Davidworld" besides him practicing and recovering in Valencia, I thought it was time to start a thread for the next tourney.

Next up: Rome Masters.
Last year David got to the Semi's where he lost against Rafa. Hope he can do just as good or better this year.

GO DAVID

Re: ***When in Rome..........WIN***

10 years ago last month I made my first journey to Europe, a school trip to Italy.

They do call Roma the eternal city. It would be great if Rafa & David played the final.

Buena suerte David!

Re: ***When in Rome..........WIN***

According to his website, David's already in Roma so you can probably see him practicing a lot this weekend Rosie.

Re: ***When in Rome..........WIN***

Okay, have just realized I'm officially addicted to the web. I had no internet-connection yesterday and most of this morning and all I could think of was..... Tursunov's blog and the draw for Rome! Tragic.

I have just taken a good look at the draw and I'm a little worried for our David. Chuco shouldn't be a problem but Massu and Davydenko? And "oh joy" Federer on his side of the draw again. I know it's nearly impossible but I'm dreaming of Feli taking out Roger. Not because I like Feli so much, I don't particularly like him, but because of all those people guessing who's going to take out Roger apart from Nadal. I just know nobody is betting on LaLo. Sorry Rogifan.

Also David will be playing doubles with Rafa. So that should be fun. Rosie, I'm soooooo jealous of you. Anyway, they play Fyrstenberg/Matkowski in the first round.

Have a great time Rosie, please let David know you're there. I was watching this program on TVE this morning about Spanish Tennis and I think they mentioned every Spanish tennisplayer alive but our lovely Ferru.

Not even Feli is dreaming of beating Federer.

I SO want to see David and Rafa play doubles together, but doubles is never on TV.
