Hi everybody!

I ve just arrived from the stadium.

Gaudio played amazing tennis against Schuettler. He outplayed the german so much with hir backhand and his returns.

Bravo Gaston!

David played well but not great, the match was kind of boring, but David won anyway

Tomorrow is the doubles match.

Hopefully David and Lucus will pull out the doubles match so that Sunday is meaningless

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

This match is swinging back and forth ridiculously - the first set 6-1 to the Argentines, the second 6-0 to the Germans and then also the third set 6-4, now Arnold and Nalbandian have taken the fourth 6-1... Schuettler/Kohlmann just held serve at the start of the decider.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Arnold/Nalbandian def. Kohlmann/Schuettler 6-1, 0-6, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2

Typical, another close match the Argies weaselled out of where they should have lost. Even if Nalbandian was favoured on clay, a live-rubber rematch with Schuettler tomorrow would have been interesting, now they'll probably put Chela in his place.

The last time - and only time - that David played Rainer on clay, it went to three sets, with the first two being split in tie breaks.

Something like 7-6 6-7 6-1

So yes - that match certaintly had more potential than did the Gaudio-Rainer match.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Argentina is in quarters!!!

The double match today was very good, both teams played very very well, but Lucas and David finished the german hopes playing too good in the 4th and 5th set.

Congrats BOYS!!!

A home tie against Russia could be very interesting - and tough. (assuming that the Russia's come through today)

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

congrats Argentina!! especially to Gaudio for bageling Rainer.

this is terrific; i'm so happy!!!

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)
