Hye Dana, call me teem ! enjoy to see your post here but bad news today for Gianni : he lost !
I'm not a great soderling's fan but agree to be first a tennis fan. I like french players first reason cause I know them better ... second reason they are where they are not expecting and vice versa
. I've got a big respect for spaniers too.
I don't know the calendar of Gianni, and you ?
Why do you like Gianni ?
F$@k! He lost!
No, I don't know Gianni's calendar, it's so pity...
Anyway, semi is good for his first tournament in so long period...
I like Gianni cause I am really interesting in junior tennis so I noticed him long time ago. Then I was thrilled by his run last Junior RG, sad he lost in final, then I started track his career, game-by-game, and found it seems like he has a character and personality, main thing I love about players.
Of cource i couldn't say "I am fan!" before this RG - I was just someone who wanna look what is next - but i liked him very much when i saw his match against Nadal. He played fine. I was excited about his style!
Of course he was nervous, very nervous, but he wasn't hysterical, he didn't give up and he has these sparks in his eyes. Good.
