Re: Have some paella - the TMS Madrid cheering thread
S'okay, Marcos, rest up and try to go far in Lyon and Paris. Hopefully he can still get into Shanghai, though it's going to be tough. The main problem - apart from Safin, who was playing and serving really well - in this match seemed to be his serve, especially his second delivery and the low percentage of first serves (which is generally a problem for him).
I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.
