Willy has a tough draw for Wimbledon... :scared:

Haas in R1: Willy has a 4-1 H2H against him but they never played each other on grass before.

I have good hope he can beat Haas, but then it will probably be Robredo and he's not a good match up for Willy...

Willy is playing with Martin Garcia and they are play Berlocq and Schwank in the 1st rd. Maybe he committed to Garcia before the tournament. Really wished he was playing with Del Porto.

Martin Garcia is his best friend ;)

Thanks for that I was wondering who the Martin was who was his best friend. Hopefully they will play well together.

I also wished that he´d play with Del Potro - even if only for the Olympic Games. I think they´d have a good chance. I´ve seen Willy and Garcia playing in Hamburg last year and a friend has seen him more often - he´s not such a good player as Del Potro. Last year they definitely lost because of him. But among good friends the decision makes sense. Hopefully he plays good.

Yes I agree that maybe with Delpo he'd have better results and I think they will team up again in the future.
But then again I also like it that friendship is important to him too and that hence he wants to give it a go with Garcia :)

Also I focus more on his individual career. Doubles are a bonus :)

I'm also glad to see Delpo back again too, after this bad back injury!

VAMOS WILLY!!!!

Vamos Willy for the match. Please focus on your 1st serve percentage. Court 6 is not that bad of a court at least it is not No. 17.

I wonder if there will be tv coverage on that court? I hope so because (as I'm at work now :sobbing: ) I'd like to download the match :awww:

Edit: I just check the website and there is :bounce:

I've had a bad day I meant Court 3 which is even better. I may even get to watch the match on tv.

I have Willy on tv I am so happy. He looks good all in white. I'll keep you posted on his form etc. I don't know why but he does something for me.

Aquarianbabe

Willy won the 1st set. He looks good, well composed and not complaining etc. His fh worked extremely well and he threw in a couple of great lobs. His shots are hitting the lines and Haas has started to talk to himself which is a good sign.

Ok Willy has taken a fall at the end of the 2nd set and he has called for the trainer. The fall has affected his knee. He looks like he is in a bit of pain. Can't tell you anything else as I have gone back to a different match.

Aquarianbabe
06-24-2008, 01:51 PM
Don't know what happened to Willy. He has lost in 4 sets. Wished my tv network stayed with the match as he was winning when I was watching. Hope the fall he took didn't do much damage to him. Better luck in the doubles Willy.

Keep your chin up.

:sad: I only had the sb but he was doing fine at start. I was wondering what happened then but fact he injured his calf explains it all.
I hope he's ok :awww:
At least he has some time to rest now and be ready for Gstaad.

Aquarianbabe

I know Martine2 he did look good in the 1st set. I think he slipped or landing awkwardly and jarred something. There was a nice handshake at net between the two. I have a huge crush on Willy and he so gracious in defeat.

At least Willy looks younger than Haas and they are both the same age.

His doubles match is first up on Court 8. Vamos Willy and Martin.

Shame he has to play Baby Gordo in the doubles because he's also a player I like very much. But I'll be cheering for Willy & Martin and the fact I don't like Berlocq at all helps :angel:

Willy and Martin are getting thumped in their doubles match. I like to be playing doubles with Willy. Next time he should play with JDMP.

Aquarianbabe
06-25-2008, 02:03 PM
I take it back Willy and Martin take the 2nd set 6-4. Nice going boys.

Aquarianbabe

Willy and Martin lost in 4 sets. Oh well you can rest up Willy and hopefully get your body right.

First time I don't mind so much that he lost since I prefer him to rest his leg and be ok for Gstaad.

Agree. I read somewhere that he is the No. 6 seed. But anything could change between now and then. Also I found a youtube of Fabiana speaking in English and she came across as being lovely and friendly and not stuck up. Her English is excellent.
