LONDRES.- El tenista nacional Fernando González (15° de la ATP) ya tiene rival para debutar en el torneo de Queen’s, certamen donde dará inicio a su temporada sobre pasto.

El tenista nacional se medirá ante el británico Alex Bogdanovic (242°), con quien nunca se ha enfrentado en el circuito profesional.

El duelo se disputará probablemente este martes, luego que la organización del torneo inglés no lo programara para la jornada inaugural.

Fernando :awww: :hug:

I was kinda of expecting this result though ... Fernando has always had problems with big server guys and playing Ivo on grass we knew it would be really tough but still not nice to lose the match like that ... Wish I could have watched it to see what happened but Fernando needs to control himself sometimes ...

Good luck in Wimbledon!!!

enqvistfan
06-12-2008, 07:14 PM
Well, a little bit expected, as I said yesterday, tough against Karlovic, the kind of player I don't like esp. on grass.

About his rackets, I think he broke more and more his rackets. In RG, he was close to have one game penalty against Wawrinka. It's a bit sad because he can give a bad image of himself behaving like that whereas he's such an angel outside the court :angel: I remember in Paris, when he broke his racket, people behind me booed him because of that :sad: As he said in an interview, he's like that and it's his temper, a hot blood Feña and that's one of the reason why I like him, he shows his emotions on the court :)

Now, one week off to prepare for Wimbly. Buena suerte :bounce:

RogiFan88
06-12-2008, 08:34 PM
:sad: pobre de Fena, he can't help it he's so passionate! they penalized him for a whole GAME??? and what about all those other players who smash their racquets, like Maratski? I've never seen anyone get a game taken away from them... ridiculous!

I hope Fena can rest a little, do some sightseeing in his fave London -- Camden market on Sat. and Abbey Road, then get ready for Wimby!! and I pray he has a decent draw FOR ONCE... Fena gets the absolute worst draws of anyone all the time... not fair!!

Go, FENA!!!

Did Fena gain any pts at all at Queens? I can't remember last yr.

ChinoRios4Ever
06-12-2008, 08:47 PM
Feña since his AO run has started to break many racquets when the things arent good for him in the matches...

He needs a good draw, till now he will be #15 or #16 seed according to Judio

so means he could face Fed, Rafa, Nole of Kolya in R16 :scared:

also many players in the 17-24 range are dangerous for a R32 meeting :unsure:

Expected result. Happened the same sh*t when they played at Queen's 2005, except for the incident in the end of the match.
It can't be possible that Fer only won 1 out of 10 points of the Ivo's 2nd serves!!!! That is the key for break chances!!!!!!!!!!!
Also, is unfair have a 0-2 head-to-head against Karlovic, when the two f*ckn' matches were on Grass, everybody knows that on Clay and Hard, Fer wins.
I'm totally upset! :mad:

Stupid to give him all those penalities. :mad:

Fernando is one of the best racquet breakers in the game. :yeah: He should be given points. :lol:
