So hopefully he can get a few solid wins in Metz!

He'll get support there :)

:hug: I know! You take my cheers with you, so you can "double cheer" for him ok ;)

That's ok!! Will wave my Argentine flag that he signed in Stuttgart. Wishing him luck ;)

Draw is out and he's playing Monfils.
Will be tough. Monfils is good and he has the favor of the home crowd.

Come on Willy!!!

Choupi

Monfils pulled out because of a wrist injury so Willy will play a Lucky Loser.

:awww: That's too bad for Gael. Hope it isn't too serious.

Willy is playing Ledovskikh, I have a good feeling about Metz this year. Willy is rested and ready! :rocker2:

martine2
10-03-2007, 11:30 AM
I hope so too! I don't know this Ledovkikh at all, but I guess it will be easier then Monfils.
The draw doesn't look bad, so let's hope for a litlle luck now too :)

:bounce: HE WON! It wasn't an easy match however. He was up 4-1 in the 1st set when ML came back and took it to a tiebreak...
Willy was struggling.
Hope it was because he hasn't played for some time and that he got some good match practice today.

Vamos Willy :yeah:

martine2
10-03-2007, 03:02 PM
Melzer will be next.
Hope Willy finds his form again, because I'd like to see him play and there will only be livestream from the QF onwards.

GOOD LUCK!

VolandriFan

Willy :drool:

He has just the right tools to frustrate Melzer ;)

Willy is playing doubles with Lapentti :) Wish I could watch that!

martine2
10-04-2007, 06:08 PM
He's playing now!

Nobody here to cheer with me? I'm all alone in the official live cheering thread too :rolleyes:

But he is leading 5-3 and going to serve now :bounce:

martine2
10-04-2007, 06:18 PM
OMG 5-5 :help:

martine2
10-04-2007, 06:37 PM
Won 1st set 7-6(3)

martine2
10-04-2007, 08:39 PM
Tough match, but a win is a win :yeah:

Korolev will be next and he's been doing pretty good already in Metz.

VolandriFan
10-05-2007, 08:56 AM
Korolev is no match for Guillermo :D

Willy is playing!! :bounce:

Yes, and he won :woohoo:

Tomorrow against Murray...

Vamos Willy :yeah:

martine2
10-06-2007, 05:53 PM
Too bad Willy lost today against Murray, but he played real good tennis!
He was ok physically and moving well. Great rallies too! Only thing that bothered him was the serve. 1st serve wasn't as it should be whereas Murray was serving very strongly.

Murray was too good today, but it felt good to see Willy back playing very consistently :yeah:

Choupi
10-06-2007, 08:31 PM
And it felt good to support him from the stands, and see him break back when Murray was serving for the match.

martine2
10-06-2007, 09:07 PM
Hope you had fun today Choupi!
He really played well, didn't he? He's finding his form again :)
I freaked out too when he broke back when Murray was serving for the match. Too bad he couldn't keep that momentum.

Btw, I could have sworn hearing you scream "Allez Willy" (through the horn GWH was gonna give you :lol: )
Too bad he won't play the final tomorrow but I hope you'll have another fine tennis day in Metz anyway :yeah:

martine2

First match against JC Ferrero.

Vamos!

Well, that surely was me, as everyone else was calling him Guillermo, or saying "vamos Willy". ;) And I had no horn :D

First match against JC Ferrero.

Vamos!

I had to leave when he was 4-2 up in the last set, but anyway even if he lost it was a good match. I was glad to see him playing his usual tennis again.
Hoping for better results in Madrid :)

Same here :)
Couldn't see the match, but I saw him against Murray and read the reports against JCF and he's back :)

Hope the luck factor will be with him too in Madrid :yeah:

:banana: He won!

Now Federer and that will be something else :scared:
Hope Willy's ankle will be ok...

martine2
10-17-2007, 08:15 PM
Won the 2nd doubles match too, together with Nalby :great:

Aguante_el_Gato
10-18-2007, 12:50 PM
it's obvious that Willy isn't in the same form from the beginning of the year (his season has begun in September 2006), and that he has been dealing with some physical problems, and that Federer will be more than prevented, but .....
Why not?
Willy is in Federer's mind, and a win today could mean his return to the top ten, and being very close from Shangai.

And we know that Willy is ALL HEART!!!!

Vamos WILLY!!!!

Denaon
10-18-2007, 05:12 PM
From what I could watch, Federer was just too good...moving Willy from one side to the other and not letting him hit the ball....
IMO Willy needs some rest.....I hope he plays just the last TMS and then has lots of rest and fun...

martine2
10-18-2007, 07:00 PM
I couldn't watch the match, but it was clear that Fed was too strong today.

Willy is tired and the surface didn't suit him whereas Fed was in top shape.
I'd also prefer he'd leave this year for what it is, rest up and come back strong next year.
His goals for 2007 have been more then achieved :yeah: .

VolandriFan

:awww: I just want Willy to rest up and be happy again :hug:

First match against Chucho... Jeez, draws can suck :mad: because I like them both so much.

VolandriFan
10-24-2007, 02:02 PM
He won so easily :bounce:

martine2
10-24-2007, 05:15 PM
Glad he won :bounce: but too bad it had to be against Chucho...
Like them both, but well if I HAVE to make a choice, it's Willy :angel:

martine2
10-24-2007, 05:16 PM
Congrats for winning the doubles with Feña too btw :yeah:

Sorry I couldn't watch that...

martine2
10-26-2007, 09:02 AM
Lost against Nieminen after being a break up and having 2MP in the 3rd set :sad:

I wish he'd take a break now and rest up. He played non stop for over a year and that's too much :sad:

VolandriFan
10-26-2007, 12:17 PM
I still think it was a good week. He seems slightly rejuvinated ;)

martine2
10-30-2007, 11:02 AM
First round Bye and today he's playing Andreas Seppi.

Vamos Willy :D

Hendu
10-30-2007, 08:55 PM
Won 6-3 7-6(5).

Robredo or Simon next.

martine2
10-31-2007, 07:50 AM
Well done Willy :banana:

Now take Robredo out!

VolandriFan
11-01-2007, 09:29 AM
Well done Willy :banana:

Now take Robredo out!

:sobbing: I hate this match

I don't know who should win. Willy wins and he's in the top 10, Tommy wins and he can still qualify for Shanghai!

martine2
11-01-2007, 03:57 PM
Well, it's over now so you don't have to worry anymore ;)

High time for Willy now to take a well-deserved vacation :D

Denaon
11-01-2007, 04:21 PM
you're right martine :p
I'm glad this year is over for Willy....he can rest for while and get ready for the new season...
btw it was a great match...I was lucky to watch it...it could have been for Willy though...

I didn't find a livestream so I couldn't watch it :sobbing:
But I was lucky Mia taped it for me and she'll upload it :banana:
Good I have a lot of matches on tape to survive the off-season :p
(hope the home country Argentines will keep me updated on all news :angel: )

VolandriFan

Well, Willy lost but so did Haas so it looks like Tommy can qualify. I think that was important for this season, as Willy can make a run towards the top 10 starting in January :)

martine2
11-11-2007, 10:42 AM
He's playing a challenger this week :confused:

I kinda hoped he'd take a break now, but I guess he and also his team will have their reasons and know what they are doing...

martine2
11-14-2007, 01:39 PM
1st round against Ledovskikh
Willy won 1-6 6-1 6-2 :yeah:

*snowflake*
11-14-2007, 07:49 PM
I think i had a small heart attack when i saw him losing the first set 5-0 lol

He really needs to win this challenger so he'd be seeded at the AO so i'm keeping my fingers crossed

martine2
