that is certainly a tough field, best wishes to willy there:)

Some of these seedings seem a bit wrong to me. I didn't realise Karlovic was ranked higher than Willy. Would of been nice if he got the 8th seed a had a bye in the 1st round.

In his section of the draw, Robredo and Ferrer aren't exactly good matchups for him

After the match.


“Last year I was playing at a very high level, but this year I’ve had problems with my wrist and so my expectations are not as high.”

“I love this tournament, I feel very comfortable playing in Barcelona on clay and I would love to return to the final and play Rafa once again.”

“I feel good, I’m positive and want to fight, so I have to take advantage of that.”

04-28-2008, 07:34 PM
Well, as long as the wrist is fine, it's ok with me no matter the result.

Last year he had a walkover on Kolya in the quarters and the 2008 draw isn't easy so if there is a way to the final it will be a difficult one, but as long as the positive attitude is there it is a good thing :)

Vamos Willy! :yeah:

Congrats Willy. I'm happy he is not playing doubles so he can rest his wrist and not get over tired. Good luck for the 2nd round. At least he has a rest day on Tuesday. I like his positive attitude.

04-29-2008, 06:21 PM
Next round against Gaba tomorrow. Good luck!!! :yeah:

04-30-2008, 07:11 PM
he won :clap2: and a good one too, vamos

Wow good start to my day with the scoreline. Keep it up Willy.

05-01-2008, 01:49 AM
Congrats :hearts:

05-01-2008, 04:32 AM
Well done Willy :D

Today will be a lot more difficult. Robredo isn't exactly a good match up for Willy and he has the home crowd.

Vamos Willy!!! :yeah:

05-01-2008, 01:47 PM
And the match hasn't started well for Willy, but I am still positive. Down 4-1 1st set.

05-01-2008, 01:56 PM
More or less what I feared... :sad:

Hope he can turn the tide :awww:

05-01-2008, 01:58 PM
Are you watching the match Aquarianbabe?

05-01-2008, 02:49 PM
No scoreboard watching and he lost but at least he made more of a match in the 2nd set. Not a good day for the Argies with Nalby losing as well. He is going to lose a lot of points. Gonzo could win though so all is not lost.

05-01-2008, 03:09 PM
I watched it on Bwin but the stream sucked :mad:

He raised his level in the second set but too late.

Robredo is the kind of player whose style doesn't suit Willy at all. When he has to play him I always go :scared: (same goes for Davydenko)

As for Nalby losing, well I adore Stan so that's a comfort ;)

For those of you who are interested. Hope this live stream works for you. I haven't checked it out yet. Don't know if it works with Macs though.
