anyone watching the coria v pavel match on tv?

Bilbo
04-22-2004, 09:41 AM
kolya breaks 3-2

johnny
04-22-2004, 09:42 AM
coria wins first 2 games, and then hardly wins a point for 4 games suffering a double break!!!!

ruru
04-22-2004, 09:43 AM
coria 2:4 pavel in the first set.

johnny
04-22-2004, 09:45 AM
what is happening to coria :(

ruru
04-22-2004, 09:46 AM
coria 2:5
i can't believe it!

Bilbo
04-22-2004, 09:47 AM
Pavel is a powerhouse like Safin. These players don't fit to Coria.

johnny
04-22-2004, 09:49 AM
he breaks back for 3-5. still in trouble though!!

Domino
04-22-2004, 09:49 AM
It's not that, it's Pavel taking Coria by surprise. He started horribly, then starts playing well. It's like Jason said, he lulled Coria into a false sense of security, and Coria just broke back, because he's snapped back to reality.

Domino
04-22-2004, 09:51 AM
30-0, Coria is playing better now, with great length on his shots.

Domino
04-22-2004, 09:52 AM
Coria is concentrating better now, and Pavel seems to have a let down right now, after his great play for five games. 5-4, Pavel to serve.

Domino
04-22-2004, 09:54 AM
Pavel looks shaken now. Making errors again.

Bilbo
04-22-2004, 09:56 AM
kolya 6-2 :yeah:

johnny
04-22-2004, 09:58 AM
fcuk, 4-6 first set. unless he gets a great start, i think that coria is on his way out :(

Aurora
04-22-2004, 10:03 AM
damn. come on Guillermo! don't let Pavel dictate the points, fight!

Chloe le Bopper
04-22-2004, 10:03 AM
Coria is the last person you want to write off mid match :p If he has to lose, at least it's to a guy like Pavel, but I'm not ready to call it over yet, especially seeing as I'm not watching play ;)

Bilbo
04-22-2004, 10:05 AM
Yes, Coria is a big fighter but not as big as Hewitt. Pavel also is in excellent form and can hang with everybody.

Bilbo
04-22-2004, 10:10 AM
Safin also will have his problems against Arthurs and his big serve.

SomL.
04-22-2004, 10:10 AM
Come on Lleyton ^_^ Lleyton against Schuettler. Go Lleyton ^_^

johnny
04-22-2004, 10:10 AM
coria seems to be playing a bit better now. at least he's getting a few points off pavel's serve.

Bilbo
04-22-2004, 10:13 AM
kolya 3-0 :yeah:

Chloe le Bopper
04-22-2004, 10:15 AM
Yes, Coria is a big fighter but not as big as Hewitt. Pavel also is in excellent form and can hang with everybody.
I don't disagree about Pavel, but I do disagree about Hewitt. After watching him not even run after any balls in the third set against Chela, he's lost his status as "best fighter" in my mind. I haven't seen Coria do that before... or Roddick.

BaselineSmash
04-22-2004, 10:20 AM
Come on Pavel! Don't lose 6-4 3-6 0-6 like you did to Hewitt in Indian Wells 2002. Actually, don't lose at all please. :)

RaVeR
04-22-2004, 10:24 AM

Ivan 2-6,1-4:eek::rolleyes::mad:
OMG!
I cant believe:eek:
what are you doing Ivan!!!????

Aleksa's Laydee
04-22-2004, 10:26 AM
come on coria...you should be winning this!!

johnny
04-22-2004, 10:26 AM
yeah, lose you little sod. come one coria!!!!

johnny
04-22-2004, 10:29 AM
looking much better gor coria now. seems he's remembered how to play.

Aleksa's Laydee
04-22-2004, 10:30 AM
bp coria goooo
saved by a backhand volley
duece

fco253
04-22-2004, 10:31 AM
Was he really playing bad in first set or Pavel was on fire?

Aleksa's Laydee
04-22-2004, 10:32 AM
double break yay

johnny
04-22-2004, 10:33 AM
nah, he was shite. now he's playing with more heart.

johnny
04-22-2004, 10:36 AM
yes :) now win the third set coria.

fco253
04-22-2004, 10:37 AM
i dont think Andrei will roll over, Coria needs to be very alert now at the beginning

Bilbo
04-22-2004, 10:42 AM
kolya wins 6-2 6-2

Aleksa's Laydee
04-22-2004, 10:43 AM
1st game to pavel now hold coria

johnny
04-22-2004, 10:46 AM
coria seems to be holding his serve a lot better, and taking a few points of pavel's. so if it goes to a tb the advantage should be with coria. but lets hope coria can break him before then.

fco253
04-22-2004, 10:52 AM
Is Pavel serve saving him? he seems to be putting a high% in 3rd set

johnny
04-22-2004, 10:57 AM
come on coria. lets finish this lad.

Aleksa's Laydee
04-22-2004, 10:58 AM
yeh his serve is good but hes making alot of errors on his groundstrokes

johnny
04-22-2004, 10:59 AM
chance of a break for coria here :)

johnny
04-22-2004, 10:59 AM
.......and he does it. 3-2 coria :)

TheBoiledEgg
04-22-2004, 11:01 AM

johnny
04-22-2004, 11:03 AM
what does anyone reckon of massu's chances against henman today?

Aleksa's Laydee
04-22-2004, 11:06 AM
i wanna say that he'l (massu) win but im not sure..i reckon it'l go to 3 sets
come on massu!!!!:D

Bilbo
04-22-2004, 11:06 AM
I don't think Massu has a chance today. Tim is playing very well in Monte Carlo every year and he's in a superior form.

TheBoiledEgg
04-22-2004, 11:07 AM
Massu plays shit he will lose, if he plays ok he's got a chance
if he plays good he wins

simple as that

El Vampiro will strike back :devil:

Aleksa's Laydee
04-22-2004, 11:09 AM
pavels throwing his racket now :( its a shame hes playing reali well but coria a lil better

johnny
04-22-2004, 11:11 AM
come on coria. lets finish this match now!

Aleksa's Laydee
04-22-2004, 11:12 AM
5-4
close it out i wanna c marat :D:D

johnny
04-22-2004, 11:14 AM
i think everyone is wating for safin :)
surely safin will win today, yes?

Aleksa's Laydee
04-22-2004, 11:15 AM
3 mps!!!!!

johnny
04-22-2004, 11:15 AM
three match points for coria :)

Aleksa's Laydee
04-22-2004, 11:16 AM
shame another error from pavel and coria takes it

johnny
04-22-2004, 11:16 AM
well done coria, now lets see safin.
(I'm off to make some tea, see all you safin fans in a minute)

BaselineSmash
04-22-2004, 11:16 AM
Massu is a human/raccoon hybrid, and was bitten on birth by a vampire...As we all know, Dracula (of the Stoker novel) could survive in the sunlight, but his powers were depleted by it..And so it was that Massu's best result came indoors, in Madrid, out of direct sunlight...In his mid-twenties he lost to Henman 6-1 7-6 in 2002 at Monte Carlo, a match during which Henman busted up Massu's face by hitting him with a volley during a net exchange...Now Massu is better, even under his less-favoured UV rays, and will be looking to suck Henman's blood (even if suffering a straights sets loss), and get his revenge for the grievous bodily harm done unto him by the so-called farmer in 2002.

TheBoiledEgg
04-22-2004, 11:16 AM
Coria wins

now its OAF time

Marat lost to Arthurs on Clay back in 1998
he shouldnt lose now, but this is Marat :shrug:

fco253
04-22-2004, 11:17 AM
GREAT GUILLE!!!

Serving it out with authority in very tough match!!!!
All first serves. Game to love. Very impressive.

This year he is proving he will be Top 5 for a long time...

Aleksa's Laydee

TBE... lets hope he doesnt today...have faith :D:D

hope this goes 3 sets

i wanna see Marat and not the farmer in action :mad:

maratski

Please can someone give a point by point report? Poor me doesn't have coverage :sad:

fco253
04-22-2004, 11:26 AM
Marat is safe today, even from himself...Arthurs on clay, no chance

Henman-Massu: tricky one, Massu has been down all year, but those guys that hasn't played well all year are dangerous, look at Davydenko. Tim has played already two long matches so he needs to put him away fast cause Nico is gonna get a lot balls back and make the match as long as possible...

Moya-Chela: nice one, Juan usually takes the match as a loss before starting, but as he is in a roll, beating Marat and Tommy, maybe his attitude wiil be different, if it is, he will give Moya a very tough fight...

johnny
04-22-2004, 11:28 AM

I love the description of Massu. Sounds like my ex-wife.

what is it with the Germans and name-calling? it seems that agrovation is a national past-time.

Bilbo
04-22-2004, 02:31 PM
I haven't given him the name. So why do ask me?

jazz_girl

Ask boiled egg. He's using all these names. If you have a problem with Germans, fine, but don't ask me. Thanks.

johnny
04-22-2004, 02:34 PM
because you called him a playground name. seems a bit childish to the rest of us. an identical thing was done earlier today to a different tennis player by another person, and he was also german. just wondered if this was a hobby in germany?

Bilbo
04-22-2004, 02:36 PM

Henman loses first set 6-3

johnny
04-22-2004, 02:38 PM
i have no problems with germans. i was seriously asking if nick-names were a typical thing in germany. with you flying the german flag and describing your location as germany and giving the players a nickname i thought you were the person to ask.
don't misunderstand me my friend.i have no problems with germans.

Bilbo
04-22-2004, 02:42 PM
i thought you were the person to ask.

sorry to disappoint you but i haven't given these names to players like henman. i read it the first time here.

Bilbo
04-22-2004, 02:43 PM
