Comforting words for Layla in here please

09-03-2002, 07:43 AM
There, I posted a thread. The first one in Juanqui's forum.

This will go down as Black Monday in my personal tennis-loving history. Apart from Lindsay and Tommy :kiss: :kiss: all of my favorites lost. :sad: :sad: :sad: Most of them in embarrasing straight sets. I knew there should've been no play. I would've sent them home and rescheduled everything for tomorrow (today that is).

Do you realize that I might not see Juanqui on TV again this year! :eek: :sad: I have no coverage of the Masters except highlights if he gets into semis or something. This was my last opportunity to feast my eyes on him and the last tape of him I got is of his funky yellow hair. :rolleyes: :)

And there's no interview either. :mad: Now we will never know why he dyed his hair.

I'm struggling to find any positives in this, but in vain. Help me out here please. Pretty please.

Ok, I'll stop wallowing in self-pity now. I just needed to get this off my chest. :(

Don't take it too hard, dear Layla. If you feel bad about his loss, we Rogi fans are down in the dumps too. Am sure you'll see ur Juanqui again before the year ends...

ps. i love that Paul Weller song that you wrote down in your adventure thread. Brings back a lot of happy memories...:)

09-03-2002, 09:21 AM
Yes, Paul Weller is great. :) I just love You do something to me. It's one of those perfect songs. *sigh*

I'm glad I took you down happy memory lane. ;)

And thanks for your words of comfort. I hope you're right. Maybe I'll see him at some minor tournament. Gotta keep hope alive.

And Juan Carlos, if you're reading this (:rolleyes: @ myself), please have a magical hard court season. :)

AW Layla,we are all sad today,Rogi also lots in straight sets.I m not sure what coverage I get of anyone either :( Dont try to get too sad because nobody wins everything and plz cheer up.Im trying 2 myself!

09-03-2002, 10:18 AM
it's a sad, sad day :sad: :sad:

09-03-2002, 11:41 AM
I couldn't be more dissapointed :sad:

09-03-2002, 01:05 PM
What can I say, except misery loves company. It was a horrible day on all sides, only to continue today I fear (Dani plays Serena tonight, among others). I suppose we can take comfort in the players that are left--I like Max Mirnyi and it was one of those matches where I knew I'd be sad at the end, plus Guga is keeping the hope alive--and just move on, look ahead.

The US is only going to have coverage of a few more tournaments before the Masters Cup (the remaining Masters Series and like 2 other tourneys) so I'm more or less in the same boat as you . . . perhaps less.

And hey, at least you have his funky yellow hair from the Open, I don't even have that.

09-03-2002, 01:27 PM
Thank you for commiserating with me guys. :)

You're right TH, we do need to take comfort in the players that are left, even though there are so few I could actually cheer for now.

At least Juanqui is still perfectly healthy, will all the injuries the other players have been suffering lately. That thought can perhaps cheer us up. See, I'm still trying to cling to hopeful thoughts. ;)

True, I do have that tape of his hair lol. I'll make sure not to erase it. I can always go back to watching some of his radiant smiles. But I'm sure you have tapes of him as well. I know they will get me through the autumn (not my favorite time of the year by any stretch of the imagination).

09-03-2002, 04:24 PM
Oh, yes, I have many tapes of him :o Unfortunately I didn't start taping matches until a few years ago, so not nearly enough for my taste. :o

:wavey: Layla and everyone!!

Aww, I'm sorry there is sadness in here! Can I help? *cough* :kiss: ;) Layla and other JCF fans, I'm sure you'll get to see your hero on TV again soon - I'll hope so! *crossing fingers*

My faves have already been eliminated, so I haven't really that much interest in the tournament right now... I don't really mind who wins. I'll just wish for some good tennis! :cool:

Let's see... ice cream... music (GOOD music)... comfort... aaaaaah... :) ;)

09-03-2002, 07:37 PM
Hi Fiona! :wavey:

Thanks for stopping by to cheer us up. *hugs* You made me smile. :) See?

Mmmmm ice cream and great music, sounds just perfect to me. ;) I'll put some on right now. Sometimes I forget how healing music can be when you need to cheer up.

I didn't realise your faves have been eliminated as well. That's dreadful. I wrote somewhere else that I pretty much lost interest in the USO as well, but you're right. I'm still looking forward to seeing some great tennis, perhaps something in the style of the Blake/Hewitt match or the drama of Safin/Kiefer.

Thanks again. :D

Never fret, its just a loss.

no one is perfect :wavey: He'll bounce back, he always does :)

09-03-2002, 09:36 PM
don't worry, Ferrero will win Roland Garros one day and will put a big smile on your face!:)

it's just one loss, Juanqui will get over will his fans! ;)

09-03-2002, 09:46 PM
I know Juanqui will get over it, but I'm not so sure about this fan. lol j/k I'll get over it eventually. :)

You're strangely calm about it Leo. ;)

09-03-2002, 10:35 PM
OMG, can you imagine what it will be like the day Juan Carlos finally lifts the RG trophy? :hearts:

Now THAT'S a comforting thought, Leo! ;)

09-03-2002, 10:48 PM
That's right, I forgot to say that in my grief. :rolleyes:

That image :hearts: wins the contest hands down, Leo! Thanks. :D

Hey Layla, just wanna say, Cheer up gal. I know it's easier said then done, as I'm still feeling sad since he lost couple of days ago. But look at the bright side (Grrr, is there a bright side?) Well, at least the American hard court season is over for him, that he can now leave the hostile ground. I'm sure you will get to see him on TV more often than not in the next few months, definitely at the TMC at year end. :)

09-04-2002, 09:32 AM
Hehe, I like your spirit Vera. Yes we'll definitely see him at the TMC, but I'm not sure it will be on TV where I live. If Eurosport didn't get the rights to show the Masters series, it probably can't show TMC either. :(

Thanks again everyone for cheering me up. You were great. :kiss: I really needed that. :)

09-04-2002, 09:13 PM
no TMS coverage on Eurosport?!:eek: i thought they had great tennis coverage! we'll havre to keep our fingers crossed for Layla! ;)

09-04-2002, 10:57 PM
Hey, worse come to worse, we can give you play by play. We'll surely do a better job than Pat and Cliff.:)

09-04-2002, 11:58 PM
lol Vera! I'll remember that and take you up on it when the time comes. :)

Awww thanks Leo! :kiss: You do that, but only when you don't have to write mind you, or play tennis. ;)

09-05-2002, 12:00 AM
Sure. I always think I can do a better job than those 2, if you don't mind me drooling all over him in between. :D

09-05-2002, 12:09 AM
Don't mind the drooling at all. The more the better. I do it myself all the time. I'm sure you could give me far more interesting details than those 2. Like the look in his eyes or the exact shape of his smile, or the way his hair is all wet and messy... Mmmmm I better stop now. :hearts:

09-05-2002, 12:11 AM
OMG. don't get me started!

:o If you ever need a reminder, just go read the post-match interviews I transcribed, all of that stuff is in there.

If I get to see him during the TMS tourneys I'll most definitely report back. I'll even take a notebook and write down stuff as I watch the match (like I did with Guga & Safin).


09-05-2002, 01:05 AM
Excellent! I'm really counting on you guys to be my eyes. I'm not kidding. :)

09-05-2002, 11:56 PM
okay, we'll be you're eyes and ears when it comes to Ferrero this fall season! ;)
