yes, he will
also Moyá is in


Albert Costa comentó tras su derrota ante Xavier Malisse, que rompió la raqueta únicamente para sacarse la rabia que llevaba dentro, y admitió después que contra la inspiración del belga nada pudo hacer, además de anunciar que competirá en Wimbledon este año, por primera vez desde 1999.
(...)

Costa anunció que después de su derrota se tomará unas pequeñas vacaciones y luego retornará al torneo de Wimbledon, por primera vez desde 1999. "Mi prioridad ahora es descansar y luego prepararme un poquito para la hierba, hacer un buen papel allí y divertirme", comentó.

De confirmarse el regreso del ilerdense al All England Tennis Club, serían dos los españoles que volverían al Grand Slam de hierba, porque Carlos Moyá también ha asegurado su participación después de faltar allí desde el 2001.

Nalbandian is doubtful, but we have to wait and see.

Any news on Ferrero? He pulled out of Halle.

No news on Ferrero yet. I wonder whether this year for him is going to be like what Marat had last year.

David has damaged an intercostal muscle (in the ribs) - he did it during the quarter final against Guga at Roland Garros. He is in such pain that he can hardly move, and although he hasn't officially pulled out of Wimbledon yet - it is extremely unlikely he will be able to play. Also goes some way to explain the 6-0 set against Gaudio last week - he was in such agony that he couldn't serve or move much at all - but - being David - wouldn't retire or let anyone know - which of course gave all the "haters a chance to talk about "choking" :devil: .

I believe as many Spaniards as possible will play Wimby this year... who knows about Juanqui... obviously depends on how well he will be at the time. I hope he can make an appearance as he got to R16 last yr before bowing out to Grosgros. So finally Moya decides to show up... they NEVER incl him when they complain about Corretja...

Guga has a recurrence of the hip problem that led him to have surgery 2 years ago. He had to withdraw from most of the clay season and he was playng with pain most of the time at Roland Garros. That's why his run there was so remarkable. He is going to rest it as much as he can because he wants to do well in the Olympics.

Last year, 12 Spaniards were in the main draw of Wimbledon. Corretja pulled out because of the birth of his daughter. Costa said very firmly he will play Wimbledon last year during Roland Garros but later withdrew because of injury. I think the only questionable absent is Moya, he did say he's injuried somewhere.

My point is, there's not been a problem of spaniards showing up in Wimbledon. The absent a couple of individual players does not represent the overall spanish present in that tournament.

At least, during Wimbledon, you don't read 999999 threads about Latin men's poor performances. Most people won't post about how beautiful & magical Mr. Grass God is. That would be hypocrisy in its highest form.
Some people actually know that with talent, experience, fitness & mindset are most important.
Media/fan hype are secondary.

I can only guess that the first part, he's on about the US men crashed out of RG before R3? :confused:

Is it possible the reason there isn't 99999 threads about Latin men's poor performance because they aren't that poor? 3 spanish speaking men in last 16. And the year prior to that, 2002, remember? Nalbandian in the final, Sa and Lapentti in the QFs, that's 3 in the last 8, plus 1 spaniard in R16.

For the rest of that post, I have no idea? Are you suggesting we should worship Federer? I do know that he is beautiful and magical on grass, and has a spotless record last year without a loss.

The commentators acted like the home viewers enjoy their whining about the U.S. men. They talk, but we want them to shut up. :lol:

Here's another senseless rant:
John McEnroe complained about a lack of U.S. clay tourneys.
If he cared so much, would he leave England & solve the U.S. tennis problems?!

Ugh!! I wasnt aware of this. That's not good. Poor David!! Eef... and Kimmy, the love of my life. This is a sad summer :sad:

I had thought David "choked" against Gaudio myself! I thought he had a brainfart or something. I had no idea he had an injury. Not to say Gaudio only won 'cause of that, but anyway, this rib thing sounds so painful just to picture in my head.

I dont know anything about this muscle. How did it get damaged?!

...Heya, I really miss HBO Wimbly coverage. It was very pleasant

David has damaged an intercostal muscle (in the ribs) - he did it during the quarter final against Guga at Roland Garros. He is in such pain that he can hardly move, and although he hasn't officially pulled out of Wimbledon yet - it is extremely unlikely he will be able to play. Also goes some way to explain the 6-0 set against Gaudio last week - he was in such agony that he couldn't serve or move much at all - but - being David - wouldn't retire or let anyone know - which of course gave all the "haters a chance to talk about "choking" :devil: .

Ugh, I hate this hip!!! He got to the Wimbly quarters in '99! ... I wish he could make runs like that again. so I hate this hip!! Because Gus is a rare one who had chances on any surface and this hip has ruined that! Why do bad things happen to good people!!!


Guga has a recurrence of the hip problem that led him to have surgery 2 years ago. He had to withdraw from most of the clay season and he was playng with pain most of the time at Roland Garros.

David hurt it in the fourth set against Guga, so I guess it was while he was serving...His service speed went down...

That's why I loved when, during the Gaudio/Hewitt demolition, Cliff Drysdale was saying how desolate we all are back home about the failure of the U.S. men at RG, Mary Carillo responded by saying that she wasn't upset at all and was enjoying watching qualified clay court players like Gaudio.

I'm surprised to see some here say that Marat cannot play on grass. The commentators during the French Open were always gabbing about how Marat has an all-court game and that he can play on any surface.

Leo
06-09-2004, 05:24 PM
He can play well on grass, but I don't think he wants to. He said something like, "I don't enjoy the grass season" after his loss to Bjorkman. (It's in the other thread.)

Safin has the game but lacks the belief. He always said he doesn't like to play on grass.

Guga Withdraws From Wimbledon
By Tennis Week
06/10/2004

Three-time Roland Garros champion Gustavo Kuerten has withdrawn from Wimbledon for the third time in the last four years. The former No. 1 announced today he is taking time off from tournament tennis to strengthen his surgically-repaired hip and plans to return to tennis on July 26th at the Tennis Masters Series-Toronto event.

The 27-year-old Brazilian plans to play Cincinnati and the Athens Olympic Games before returning to the United States for the U.S. Open, which begins on August 30th.

"My goal now is to be fully physically recovered and to be in great shape I need, at least, six weeks of intense work," Kuerten said. "I am motivated, playing tennis in a very high level and I know that easing the pain I will be able to be among the best players again. I really want to be ready to play the Masters Series, the Olympics and the U.S. Open, that are the main tournaments for me in the second semester."

During his six-week sabbatical from tennis, Kuerten will be in his hometown of Florianopolis, working with his physical therapist, Mariangela Lima and with coach Larri Passos. On Sunday June 13th, he will fly to Rio de Janeiro, to take part with Brazilian fellows Pele and Ronaldo on the Athens Olympic Torch relay.

The charismatic Kuerten reached the quarterfinals of Roland Garros, falling to David Nalbandian. Though Kuerten has never completely felt comfortable on grass courts, he did reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals in 1999. A year ago, Kuerten lost in the second round of the grass-court Grand Slam.

Gustavo Kuerten's Summer Schedule

July 26th – ATP Tennis Masters Series Toronto
August 1st – ATP Tennis Masters Series Cincinnati
August 16th – Athens Olympics
August 30th – U.S. Open
