I chuckled at this as well.
Ya know...you could put something on the OOP about that match being an exhibition...or not.

LOL Bilbo I noticed that as well but like me you should have checked the main draw and come to the conclusion that it is an exhibition match.

Sampras wants to win another couple of slams to make sure Frauderer won't pass him.

Blake would probably fly over here and play me in a Super Tennis exho if I paid the cost of his flight

Wasn't that the "tournament" sponsored by some betting company where players had to play on a 3x3 meter field in multi-colored clothing and silly rules and got a million or something in price money? :lol:

And the players were still pissed off there despite getting the $$$.

like I said

Pete is sick and tired of Nadal abusing his beloved grass and wants very much to do something about it. So he's going to go Wimbly 09 and USO 09, beat Rafa in the final of Wimbly and destroy Fed in the final of the USO, which will bring him to 16. Then he will happily go back into semi-retirement.

.......

do I sound like Mediter yet :o :help: :haha:

Tankman
02-09-2009, 08:36 PM
hey it's nadal in RG and Wimbly. And Fed at the USO. And fine, Nole at the TMC.

Then he'll beat a surprise finalist at the AO in 2010 and get the Serena slam :o :tape: :haha:

I was really curious and excited to see him play Blake. But replaced by Vince Spadea... thus, a renewal of the Spadea/Blake rivalry.

Tankman
02-10-2009, 02:38 AM

WTF

oh Tim, you should be glad you didn't showcase this mug match :p

poor pistol pete injured then?

didn't you just start it? anyways, not that bothered really. I don't see a big deal especially with blake around

It was reported on livescore.com at least a couple hours ago. I just expected a swifter reaction from MTFers, but it looks like everyone has moved on and doesn't care about the Pistol Pete anymore.

Tankman
02-10-2009, 02:41 AM
we think its a huge joke actually :p

but honestly, if he comes back he'll wipe the floor with the "Top 4" :devil:

It is strange. But it couldn't be a joke, right? atptennis.com was/is still advertising it on the homepage.

Spadea and Blake play each other in the first round here on Wednesday, why would they agree to play each other in an exhibition? Has it been confirmed anywhere (i.e. somewhere more reliable than livecore.com.) that Pete actually withdrew?

Tankman
02-10-2009, 03:06 AM
not to my knowledge :S

Lee
02-10-2009, 03:17 AM
If I have a ticket to tonight's match and if the tournament really replace Pete with Vinny, I will definitely demand my refund. :lol:

02-10-2009, 03:34 AM
pete's name is on the scoreboard:shrug: but against Haas? maybe JAMES is the one who pulled from the exho, not Pete (though James played doubles a while ago....)

Lee
02-10-2009, 03:36 AM
But he's playing Haas, not Blake :scratch:

obviously our hopes and dreams about Sampras are going to come to nothing, if he CAN'T EVEN BEAT SAMPRAS.

Djokovic > Fed > Murray > Nadal > Haas > Sampras right now

which means that by logical deduction

Top 4 >>>>>> Sampras :p

Tankman

Sampras lost after havng a MP. Too bad, but nice for the poeple who got to see it I gues.
