Actually I'm a junk food lover. :o It's so hard to quit them :awww:

I wanted Baggy to win too. It was so :sad: to see him crying at the end. I thought the HUG between Hewitt and Baggy was nice though after that epic match :)

I feel so sad for Tipsy too. He played so well and held his nerves but still couldn't beat Fed.

And I went to sleep after the Roger/Tipsy match only to wake up and see that Baggy was still only starting the 4th set :lol: ESPN actaully had good coverage and great matches :worship:

It's a shame for Baggy :sad: He came back from 2 breaks down in the 4th. The crowds (some of them) were really tough on him :o

For me there is only one good thing about Federer getting through. The commentators have said that if Federer loses before the Semis and if Rafa were to win the title, Rafa would get the #1 ranking. Of course I want that, but if Roger had lost then it would have made the Paulo vs. Rafa match so difficult for me because I want Paulo to win...but I want Rafa to become #1. Now I don't have to think about Rafa's ranking right now....only Paulo.

Here we go:

Que s'est-il passé ?

PAUL-HENRI MATHIEU: Je m'étais tordu la cheville gauche lors de ma première rencontre, sur la balle de match. Et depuis, je ressentais comme une courbature à ce niveau-là. Hier, ça allait bien. Et aujourd'hui, je me suis à nouveau blessé dès le premier point du match. J'ai sauté pour jouer un revers et j'ai ressenti une vive douleur. Après, je ne pouvais plus courir normalement. Et contre lui, si vous ne pouvez pas courir, vous n'avez aucune chance.

Psychologiquement, comment vivez-vous ce moment difficile ?

P-H.M. : Je suis défait. Je jouais de mieux en mieux. On s'entraîne pour jouer des matches comme celui-là, sur un grand court. Et puis voilà.

Sait-on déjà la durée de votre convalescence ?

P-H.M. : Non, je vais rentrer à Paris pour faire des examens. Mais là, j'ai très mal.

But it wasn't just that. I had such a bad day and Paulo's injury was just the iceing on the cake. The whole crowd started booing him and I felt like punching them all out. They are so pathetic, even when JMDP had a microfracture in his spine they still booed him for retiring.

I was dragged into the city earlier than I had planned to spend the day doing something for a friend and ended up being ignored all day when she met up with some people. In the end, I was looking foward to the tennis, but once again my friend took me to the wrong side of Melbourne and I had to walk at least 2km in the wind as fast as humanly possible to get to Melbourne Park in time. :o

Delpo's spinal injury can't be worsened by playing apparently, and he only feels pain when he's serving. I guess that's why the crowd didn't think he had a serious problem, but he'd already called an injury time out. People are too insensitive and conclusive. :rolleyes:

Juan Carlos will be 28 soon. :eek: I seriously feel depressed when I think of people getting old, not just the players. But then I think, he can play until he's 32 or even 35 if he still enjoys the game and has good results. So Paulo could still play for another 9 years, almost a decade. :rocker2:

If he's chosen, Davis Cup 1st round is on 8-10 Feb, followed by Marseille the week after.

It's going to be tough for Forget to choose people. Hopefully Paulo gets chosen though :)

Well I'm about to leave....I'll tell you Happy Birthday now OME (I guess it's a little early), maybe I'll even say it again later :lol:

:bdaycake: HAPPY BIRTHDAY OME!! :aparty:

I totally forget my bd since no one else is here with me and all I think about is Paulo's match! :lol: (well, Athan and his bros didn't come since their parents needed them at dinner :lol:)


Thank you, Becky! :kiss: :smooch:
My wish this year would be to pass my second year and for Paulo to have a great year ;)

It'll be played on indoor hardcourt... I think it's more likely for Richard and Jo to make it this tie :)

I was in disbelief. At first I thought no, my day had been so bad I was having hallucinations. :lol:

I actually felt worse when he did that. It was like he was pleading to them "please don't be mad." :sad:

People who booed him should feel bad :ras:

I thought it was a REALLY nice thing to do though. Like "I'm sorry that I waste your money. I know you want to see more tennis...blah blah blah" :lol: But yes, I get that "please don't be mad" impression from him... that's why I can't no longer mad :hug:

I think he understands that Gasquet and Tsonga right now will do better indoors, not to mention Paulo's inability to function under pressure. :o I'd just want him to do well on the tour if I had to choose between the two.

I'm sure he will be disappointed. I think he mentioned earlier how he wanted to play DC and Olympics for his country. But yeah, I think he'll understand that there are players who perform better than he is. Forget has a tough choice to make. He could go with three singles players. Richard and Tsonga obviously know how to play doubles. But that could end up like last year tie against Russia...

Djokovic's game is based around footspeed as much as aggressive strokes. Cilic is pretty slooooooow. ;) So no, I don't see any resemblance either.

Ome, today is your birthday? Wow, it's Nico's birthday, too :D so I must say "HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" :aparty:

Be happy (with Paulo), joyful (with Paulo's performance) & healthy (less visit to the hospital :p) on your special day & the rest of the year. :)

By the way, are you Thai? Many friends here call you "Jai" (meaning "heart"?) I thought you're foreigner living here in Bangkok because your English is perfect. Correct me if I misunderstood :o

I know. Same day as Nico ;) And thank you :kiss:

I'm 100% Thai ;) Actually, my name pronounces like the letter "J" (I've always spelled it that way for some strange reason :lol:) Ome is a name I got from tennis camp. Basically, I have two nicknames :lol:

Why are all Croatian tennis players SOO tall :rolls:

But they have now started showing Fed/Berdych :ras: it's probably because Marin/Blake is not exciting at all right now. Too many errors by Marin


Must be the water there!! :lol:

Yeah, I have Berdman and Ego King on TV too :lol:


I always thought Paulo spoke pretty good English since he trained in the U.S. for a bit. :shrug: I haven't seen many Paulo interviews in English though... usually its always french :lol:

Yeah, better than some of the Frenchies. I have always loved Grosjean's accent. Seb and Guy Forget speak perfect English. Paulo seems to mumble a lot :lol:

Do you remember that weird accent Paulo had when he interviewed Julien in Las Vegas? :rolls: I think it aired on TTC :lol:

They keep changing between the three courts so right now they're showing Kirilenko/Hantuchova match :lol: I'm sure they'll go back to Blake or Federer in like five minutes. :p

Seb should be able to speak English well because he lives in the U.S. :lol: Paulo mumbles a lot in any language i would think :p :o

I've never heard of the interview or his "weird" accent :scratch: Is there a video of it somewhere? :)
