Tomas will play Austrian Werner Eschauer in the first Round...

I think the draw is Ok until 4th Round Roger Federer again...

Apart from thinking optimistically, at least he'll almost definitely be on tv playing against Roger:p

Great job...

definitely not a great job, being a break down in the first 2 sets against a claycourter and losing loads of games
fortunately the 2nd round is too easy against King Oscar but the 3d might be tricky if he plays Monaco who has a game that can trouble Tomas

Good luck Tomas :banana:

P.S. I find the Czech thread so quiet compared to some others. I'm surprised :confused: There are so many excellent Czech tennis players compared to other countries which I won't name :rolleyes: Is it characteristic of the Czech temperament :confused:

Good match V Monaco. I actually got to watch it:D my sister has cable tv and I was babysitting my niece who LOVES Tomas:lol: whenever he was on the screen she would wave at him :angel:(she's 5 months old)

Congratulations Tomas on his win against Monaco and thank you for making his way deeper & deeper in the tournament (to meet Federer? :o) so I can see him live for the first time.

During the past 6 days I could see Tomas only on the livescores. It's so tired to imagine this & that but seeing nothing!! :( Anyway, my day has come and I hope Tomas will try his best against Federer. Surely, it's tough but we must have faith in him. So go go Tomas! :bounce:

A 60 seconds lapse and the 1st set is gone. Far out I can't stand Federer.

Ashie_87

Tomas lost 6-4, 7-6, 6-3 *sigh* Jaroslav and Lucie looked like they wanted to hit something when he lost the 3rd set point

I'm so angry it's not funny. So angry.

What an absolute head case. He needs to get a new brain.

GonzoFan
01-21-2008, 05:58 AM
Too bad ... :sad: he had so many chances there in the second set :awww:

Deea
01-21-2008, 08:02 AM
That second set TB was so frustrating to watch :sobbing: oh tomas, that was such a great opportunity :awww: Ah well...it just wasn't meant to be...:sad: maybe next time!

01-21-2008, 10:34 AM
good match but far from good in important points

hopefully he keeps this form for the indoor season
as of now, he's in top 10 and it's pretty safe since only Blake can overtake him

linus

Pain to me watching just can say now :awww:

Well, Tomas :hug:

I'm really furious right now. I'm sick of all this "bad luck", "wasn't mean to be" tripe. He is one heck of a talented player, I was at his first 2 games and cheered him on, but the guy is a SERIOUS head case.

He needs to change coaches because he's not progressing. He need to add more variety to the serve, he needs to work on his net play, and he needs a change and hopefully it will provide him a fresh start and get his head functioning. Seriously, he could be anything, but he'll never reach top 5, he'll never beat the top players and he certainly will NOT win a Slam until he learns how to win the big points and show up to play every single day.

Not good enough Tomas, you're capable of so much more yet I doubt it'll ever come.

Anyone care to post anything more after the headcase choked again? It could've been him beating Federer you know.
