Hrbaty is feeling the pressure because the win would give him a 4th Title in 04; which is amazing considering he had only ever won 3-ATP titles in his career until this season. Suddenly he's faced with the unknown factor from Ventura who has nothing to lose & everything to gain.

Yeah I was thinking that too. Hrbaty was the overwhelming favourite, if you look at Ventura's record, his best result this year was winning one F3! He has absolutely nothing to lose and Hrbaty does.

But Hrbaty has not been on form on clay this year. And the opponents he has played have not been great.

I think Ventura has beaten better players to get to the final. He has been good in the futures.

But Hrbaty will still win it.

I dont think Ventura's opponents were better. He beat Christophe Rochus and Heuberger to make the final, two not very good players. Hrbaty beat Benneteau who's a good up and coming player very easily, and Hernandez, who isnt very good but at least he is top 100, not like the players Ventura beat. But it was still a great effort from Ventura compared to his previous results.

Experimentee
05-22-2004, 05:15 PM
Hrbaty needs to be careful here. Ventura also lost the 2nd set easily against Rochus but came back very strong in the 3rd set. Hrbaty cannot be complacent at all and must keep the pressure on!

johnny
05-22-2004, 05:15 PM

i have to say it is much better here than on the WTA forum (which i was on this morning to get some scores). i called davenport a "uesless shite" when she killed a 5 player/team accie for me. and they banned me!!!
the number of times we have all called henman a useless shite, we would all be banned from here :)

The thing about betting on tennis, is that people tend to look at the odds too much.

Look at the match-up first and then see who YOU think is going to win.

Davenports opponent had also won surprisingly in the previous round and the bookies were still making Davenport dead favourite!

Experimentee
05-22-2004, 05:20 PM
lol thats quite harsh to ban you for saying that :eek:
People have said so much worse in the GM forum.

johnny
05-22-2004, 05:21 PM
yeah, i know. it was a bad choice. fortunately i only included her in one accie, so with Man Utd, celtic, smash-nova winning, i will still break even if hrbaty wins here.
if he loses, i will be very sad.

johnny
05-22-2004, 05:22 PM
i don't mind being banned. the people on that forum never say anything more than "GO ON SERENA".

Experimentee
05-22-2004, 05:22 PM
I would have thought Davenport would surely win that, no matter what the odds were! I've seen Schaul and I dont think she could trouble top players. Guess she played the match of her life.

It is a long shot - but you would get great odds!

Ace Ventura, Clay Detective! A pretty low-quality field, in some respects this is like winning a top of the range challenger rather than a maiden tour title, but it's still a massive step-up for him. And we all know how Spain are sorely in need of another good young player...

Sjengster
05-22-2004, 06:13 PM
johnny, tennis betting is a foolhardy and (as evidenced last year in the Kafelnikov scandal) potentially criminal activity. But I would have put decent money on Davenport to win too, just not that much.

What a pathetic loss for Hrbaty. He should have won the tournament with this kind of field.

He called for the doctor at crucial time but was not sick at all.
The doctor didn't touch him nor gave him anything.

He said after the match that it was purely tactical to mess soderling's mind.
The czech people doesn't like him very much too ...

Hrbaty had quite serious flu in the final. He got it from Kucera, who also had the flu that week. It must have been real because he had to retire from his next match in Dubai against Paradorn. And with the way Paradorn's form was, anyone would be mad to retire against him!

j-phi
05-22-2004, 06:25 PM
I am sorry but that's what he said just after the Winning ceremony.

Ha had flu at the beginnig of the tourmament. Right. But he said that he called for the doctor for mere tactical reasons and that soderling was too young to counterpart these kind of tactics ...

Experimentee
05-22-2004, 06:33 PM
I dont think thats what happened. He definitely had flu after, because he retired from Dubai against Paradorn, because of flu.
And Hrbaty is not the type to retire from matches. I cant remember any other time where he retired in his career, probably less than 5. I watch most of his matches and I've never seen him take an injury break, the one against Soderling was the only one i can remember.

Experimentee
05-22-2004, 06:41 PM
I dont think he said it was intended to throw Soderling off, but he said that it he thought it did. Every time Hrbaty wins he always tries to give an excuse of his opponent.

As you want - I like players with good ethics ...
Fot this reason I like Nicolas Escudé, Roger Federer of course, Marat Safin, Megann Shaughnessy, Justine Henin-Hardenne and so many others ...

I am sure of what I am writing. - Don' spend your evening crying at an Hrbaty poster ... Better laugh at Ventura's victory

Jim Jones
05-22-2004, 08:13 PM
Hmmm, so poooor Hrbaty had the flu. Oh no, bouhou. I don't know Ventura put I'm now glad that this Spaniard with an Italian last name (like fellow qualifier-winner & ex-player Carretero) won. I don't like players who give patethic excuses. Even if it's true he should learn to zip it.
