Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

bad bad draw. this better not be the tourney where richie decides to step it up. Good Luck Jo! I'm so excited to watch Jo on clay. Only good thing about the 1st round match up is I'm pretty certain it will be televised on french national tv and I'll most likely find a livestream.

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

It seems like I've waited forever to see Jo play on clay. Tough first round match against Gasquet, it will be interesting to see how well he adapts to the surface. Win or lose, there's still time to look ahead to the big prize: Roland Garros. Good luck Jo! Just do your best, any win is a bonus (so many points to be gained on clay and grass), and any loss a learning experience.

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

I've got really mixed feelings about this match. I really don't know who I want to win. I think I'm just going to sit back, relax and not really mind who wins ... although I have a SLIGHT preference for Richie I must admit because I would like to see him get back to his best and yet I love Jo too!!! I'm so

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

Hopefully Jo can play well against Gasquet. A good start with a doubles win.

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

I like Richard, too. But not as much as Jo. I don't particularly want Jo to completely destroy Richie, but you know, a win in straight sets would be nice. I mean, poor boy lost to Christophe Rochus last time, something's definitely not going for him lately. I hope he starts playing better next week.

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

hmm, it appears Jo-Richie match has not even started. I wonder if it is postponed to tomorrow.

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

I think it will be Bashak. I just saw the end of Fish and Andreev and OMG, it was so gloomy on court, really low light and about 4 spectators! Hardly a great atmosphere for any player to play in. It's such a shame as this tournie has been a real wash out weather wise.

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

Ok, according to the official Rome tournement website, Jo's match is not cancelled yet, the doubles match on the same court originally scheduled to be played after Jo-Richard is cancelled. Fognini-Volandri match is currently on that court and so far it's 5-5 in the first set. Per favore attractive italian guys, hurry it up a little. I really wanted to watch this.
