ataptc
11-14-2006, 01:32 PM

gulzhan
11-14-2006, 01:40 PM
yep, very close.... :(
but with federer-- you never know how close to the winning you are...
sometimes it's only an illusion....:(

silverwhite
11-14-2006, 03:33 PM
Yes. I predicted 7-6 6-4 so hopefully he takes the match in a TB. :unsure:

gulzhan
11-14-2006, 03:38 PM
can't jinx for him, i said :(
but hope he'll do that without help :lol:

You can sleep on the journey there ;)

How I long for a holiday..it's been one and a half years since I last went on a holiday trip!

silverwhite
11-14-2006, 04:59 PM
It's more of a camping trip than a holiday :p

gulzhan
11-14-2006, 05:01 PM
I need to go to sleep soon, I know :lol:

Both of us picked David and one of our opponents picked David too. Not sure about the other one. :p

hope he picked him too :) usually players pick the same in the doubles :confused: or it's too dangerous unless they had a lead which they had not, right?
so.. tb? :eek:

ljubo really hurt your tt this time :lol:

are you going on vacation? i thought you are playing a tennis tourney ;)

silverwhite
11-14-2006, 05:02 PM

shit :tape: :mad:
davy losing the second set? :eek:

sorry, SW, i know how you feel.... :sad:

silverwhite
11-14-2006, 05:06 PM
Yes. It's because Davydenko took three sets to win :smash:

The #1 seeds are being humiliated at the TMC :sad:

gulzhan
11-14-2006, 05:09 PM
it was real odd that davydenko played so bad.... :( it should have been a clear 2 sets match... :(

well, maybe you still have a chance?... you know, sort of as nalba has?....

silverwhite

11-14-2006, 05:17 PM
ok, to finish today's shanghai, i must admit-- fed really gave me a hope! :lol:
second match in a row he gives away a set... :confused:
if to remember cincinatti (whatever spelling.. ;)) that could cumulate and result in his defeat? :tape:
:secret: could it be by the time of a semi against nadal :angel: :lol:

gulzhan
11-14-2006, 05:22 PM

:D but i'm a little sad about kolya losing too

ataptc
11-15-2006, 02:04 PM
I didn't know you like kolya. He will most probably be 2nd in the group :)

gulzhan
11-15-2006, 02:05 PM
poor kolya! :crying2:
lead 4-2 in the 2nd set!!!!
i don't know what happened to him :(

gulzhan
11-15-2006, 02:06 PM
I didn't know you like kolya. He will most probably be 2nd in the group :)

he can lose to nadal and be out.... :eek:

ataptc
11-15-2006, 02:10 PM
hopefully he will lose to rafa then!

gulzhan
11-15-2006, 02:15 PM
he probably will :(
he is playing real bad :crying2:

but i wanted rafa and davy in semi....

ataptc
11-15-2006, 02:17 PM
hopefully he will lose to rafa then!
:cuckoo: OMG, I meant hopefully rafa will lose to him!

PennyThePenguin

11-15-2006, 04:35 PM
no seriously, I really meant I wanted Rafa to lose to Kolya.. Was multi-tasking when I typed that! :o

gulzhan
11-16-2006, 12:22 PM
SW did not ask me :) but I'll try to have this thread up while he is in Malasia.... (playing tennis:tape: :lol:)

Hi, everyone! :wavey:

gulzhan
11-16-2006, 12:59 PM
OK, Andy blew it.... He has almost beaten Fed, had 3 mps, and lost to Nalba in 2 sets, when all he needed for the semi was to win a tb... TB which he used to always win.... I mean used to when it was an old Andy....

Now, good that or bad? :confused:

gulzhan
11-16-2006, 01:15 PM
well, it's my crazy theory that the fire in roma changed andy...
:secret: he faced the death and changed priorities :tape:

i liked that :angel: he has become a normal person...
gilbert could not stand it and left him :(

when gilbert took over the second andy, murray, roddick mmmh... sort of freaked out... something happened to him again... he hired conneors (another sob and jerk :tape:).... some said old andy was back... he said it's a new roddick... i guess he was right? :lol: and i like it! :yeah:

gulzhan
11-16-2006, 02:04 PM
now fed vs ljubo..
ljubo lost the 1st set on tb, it was close, but his serve is not that powerful anymore :(

gulzhan
11-16-2006, 03:30 PM
fed won, surprise! :lol:

so, nalba will play against blake in semi and fed against.. rafa? :angel: :lol:

bye-bye for today, singaporeans :wavey:

PennyThePenguin
11-17-2006, 01:41 AM
hey gulya!!! :lol: thanks for keeping the thread up. been busy. was out last night for dinner and the food took FOREVER to arrive :p and they gave us our main course before our appetiser :o :cuckoo: we of course sent te main course back :p

and my exams are in 11 days!! :scared:

gulzhan
11-17-2006, 02:14 PM
hi, Jiat! :wavey:
are you still here? :)

gulzhan
11-17-2006, 02:16 PM
nadal won! :yeah: hurray!!!
now, we will see anotyer fed-nadal match tomorrow!
marvelous! :worship:

ataptc
11-17-2006, 02:27 PM
andy :smash: :smash:

i hope the fed-rafa match will be interesting! rafa seems to be improving with every match no? (i didn't watch his matches - just guessing). I can't watch it though cos I need to study for bio options paper on monday!

Btw, hi gulzhan! Good job for keeping the thread active ;)

PennyThePenguin
11-17-2006, 02:28 PM
heeeeeyyaaaaa! i'm here for a bit :D kolya lost :awww: ah well..DC CMOOONNN!

gulzhan
11-17-2006, 05:22 PM
andy :smash: :smash:

i hope the fed-rafa match will be interesting! rafa seems to be improving with every match no? (i didn't watch his matches - just guessing). I can't watch it though cos I need to study for bio options paper on monday!



Hi, Eve! :)

Yes, I was very upset with Andy yesterday too-- he went on tb, lead 3-1, he needed to stay cool and hold his serve only!... :mad:
I don't know-- he seems to have a paranoia of tbs?.... He used to play them so well and now he always loses!.. :eek:
I still think Andy is too sensitive :o which is not that bad when you think about life, not just tennis... :angel:

Rafa isn't playing better I must say-- something still bothers him, he trys to stay a little closer to the base line and to play more agressive but not that much... :sad: He has very few chances against Fed tomorrow but it's psychology that'll be interesting to watch :lol: No matter how much Fed tries to hide it, he is a coward :tape: No matter how much stronger Fed is, Rafa still has tiny advantage :p Will he be able to use it? :confused:

gulzhan
11-17-2006, 05:28 PM
heeeeeyyaaaaa! i'm here for a bit :D kolya lost :awww: ah well..DC CMOOONNN!

Jiat! :lol: It's funny that you cheeered for Kolya! ;) My sister cheered for him too and we fought all the match :haha: :secret: She says Kolya is cute (just awful taste when it comes to cloths and.. girls :tape:) and can't understand why all the people think otherwise! :lol:

Yep, can't wait for DC! :devil: Good that Kolya will have more time to get ready but still think, he might not play on first day :confused: Marat will start and who'll be playing the second match, even Tarpishev does not know now ;)

PennyThePenguin
11-18-2006, 05:13 AM
will marat even start? nothign's certain with that team until the very last moment :D who will play dubs? dimarat isn't the best pairing :o

gulzhan
11-18-2006, 02:10 PM
rafa lost :crying2: which was expected...
but it was a beautifyl match! :yeah: rafa played much better than in the 3 matches before, and fed... fed finally was seriously tense and nervous and sweating :haha:
that is why i needed rafa in semi so badly :lol:
no matter how much better davydenko plays, he'd lose easy and fed will put up a show as always,... :mad: always but except when he plays against rafa ;)

PennyThePenguin
11-18-2006, 02:18 PM
:hug: :hug:

how are you today gulya?

gulzhan
11-18-2006, 02:39 PM
Hi, Jiat :wavey:

I am fine, thanks... A little upset Rafa lost in 2 (if it would be in 3 I'd be happy..) but I am quite happy about the quality of the game....

And it's a nice Saturday-- I had my friend visiting me, we had a nice chat :lol:

How are you? :)

PennyThePenguin
11-18-2006, 02:43 PM
i'm good :D went for dinner to celebrate granddad's birthday :D

gulzhan
11-18-2006, 03:02 PM
cool! :) happy birthday to your grandpa!

so.... davis cup-- the reason why i am saying marat will play the first match is because the dc final is the most important for marat now!
he wants to win so bad!
tarpishev will give him a choice, i am sure, and marat will chose to play the first match :)

PennyThePenguin
11-18-2006, 03:17 PM
it'd depend on the draw though ;) they might draw kolya first (if kolya plays singles of course :) )

gulzhan
11-18-2006, 03:26 PM
they first will have the draw and then decide who is no.1 and who-- no.2 :lol:
tarpishev knows how to do that :yeah:

i can't wait!!! still so upset that i won't go :(

PennyThePenguin
11-18-2006, 04:12 PM
oh no...what happens in the draw is i think they put the names of all 4 singles players in the bowl/cup whatever and they draw one name out.

so let's say they draw the name of the higher ranked argentine. so he plays first, against the lower ranked russian. if it's the lower ranked argentine that gets drawn, he plays first against the higher ranked russian. and the other way round :D and reverse singles would be the higher ranked russian first against the other guy he hasn't played

gulzhan
11-18-2006, 06:19 PM
yes :)
we will see, i guess.. i just hope that marat will open the match... that'll be so important!
doubles are our problem-- we always lose :(
so, we need to win both singles on first day and then the first match on the third day... just as we did against french and us :lol:

silverwhite
11-18-2006, 11:21 PM

Later this week probably, will let you know.

SW, congrats on fed's win! :)
admit it-- the match against rafa was the best :yeah: well, if you saw it ;)

the season is over :(
just DC to wait :yeah:
i saw a program with youzhny today, he is starting the trainings and hopes to be ready by DC :confused: maybe at least for doubles?

I only watched the last few games of Fed vs Nadal :angel:

gulzhan
11-19-2006, 01:37 PM
so, you saw the match point?
wasn't that beautiful?! :yeah:
i liked them hand-shaking and hugging, very warm ;)
did you see fed applauding to nadal when he was leaving the court? :lol:
he sort of admitted nadal was a real finalist, not blake... :(

gulzhan
11-19-2006, 01:48 PM

That's only because Fed's game matches up better against Blake's than Nadal's. If Nadal and Blake had to fight it out for a place in the final, I don't think Nadal would win. ;)

they did and blake won, you are right...
but why he plays so poorly against fed?
no one can stand against fed, but nadal :sad: and marat :devil: and richie :p

Richard has lost the last 5 times or so against Roger. I think he had a big chance at Toronto at 6-2 0-0* 0-40 but he folded when he wasted those 3 BPs. :rolleyes:

Richard has lost the last 5 times or so against Roger. I think he had a big chance at Toronto at 6-2 0-0* 0-40 but he folded when he wasted those 3 BPs. :rolleyes:

Hi, Eve! :)

Yes, I was very upset with Andy yesterday too-- he went on tb, lead 3-1, he needed to stay cool and hold his serve only!... :mad:
I don't know-- he seems to have a paranoia of tbs?.... He used to play them so well and now he always loses!.. :eek:
I still think Andy is too sensitive :o which is not that bad when you think about life, not just tennis... :angel:

Rafa isn't playing better I must say-- something still bothers him, he trys to stay a little closer to the base line and to play more agressive but not that much... :sad: He has very few chances against Fed tomorrow but it's psychology that'll be interesting to watch :lol: No matter how much Fed tries to hide it, he is a coward :tape: No matter how much stronger Fed is, Rafa still has tiny advantage :p Will he be able to use it? :confused:
yeah whenever he has to play a TB, i go :scared: cos it's almost certain that he'll lose it :sad: I think it's the confidence - he's not there yet.

And about Rafa, I was just assuming from the scoreline.. but he does seem like he's not playing as well as in the first half of the year?

You went to the USO? :eek: Tell us about it! :p

Yup, first time ever going to a tennis tournament. Actually I was in NYC for work but managed to squeeze some time for US Open. My main purpose is to see Agassi. I went to the Arthur Ashe Kids Day too. I just stood outside the practice courts all the time to get autographs for my jumbo tennis ball. I had many except Agassi & Graf :( but i got Agassi's parents autograph lol.

I only managed to take pictures with Max Miryni, Blake and Jimmy Connors. Davydenko is really shy and quiet type. But he's nice, signed many autographs.

I am really lucky during this tournament. I couldn't get tickets for Agassi's opening match. All tickets were sold out and I had to watch the match from the screen outside Arthur Ashe Stadium. At the end of second set, some guy came over and gave me his 2 tickets for the match and told me to go into the stadium to watch it. My friend and I couldn't believe it. So we ran it and it was the nosebleed section but who cares. I had to priviledge to watch it right in the stadium and the atmosphere was amazing.

the hardest question :o
:secret: i have not decided yet! ;)

i want richie to win both of his matches (in 5 sets each :lol:) but russia to win 3-2 which would be impossible since we always suck in doubles :eek:

so.... as richie says-- we will see tomorrow :p

so much for all my pain and suffering :crying2:

well, let's wait for the first round first :lol:

your mmmh.. sympathy to the french team is sort of controvercial... calling them the chokers? :confused:

silverwhite
11-22-2006, 03:02 AM
PHM is the biggest choker on the tour and Grosjean has choked quite a few times too. I don't think Richard is a choker but he's a tanker. Whatever it is, they are a mentally weak team. :tape:

gulzhan
11-22-2006, 03:10 AM
but they are your faves? or no? or "no comment"? :lol:

ah, forgot, agent SW! ;)

yes, PHM is a choker and it's painful to watch him... I think he is a mmmh... rare object for some smart psychology (or psychiatry :tape:) research... :(

grosjean... ? mmh.. :confused: yep, he rushes to win sometimes... but so does safin? no?

richie used to be a tanker :lol: he changed IMO, at least the last one I saw was stutgardt :)

we can say same about turso... but dc changes everything... no tankers there :yeah:

silverwhite
11-22-2006, 03:12 AM
Yes, they are my favourites, unfortunately. :armed:

I think Richard tanked the final set against Marat during DC. He said later that after he got broken, he sort of gave up because Marat was serving so well and he didn't believe he could break back. :rolleyes:

gulzhan

It's a good team to be faves, really! :yeah:
They are my second faves :secret: They are gonna have harder times now I think.... :scared: I am not that fond of Monfils.....

Tanking last games in a 5 set match, that is mmm.. sort of not-tanking!!! :lol:

silverwhite
11-22-2006, 03:27 AM
I don't like Monfils either ;) But Richard wants to win DC with him (they are really good friends) :armed:

It's giving up at least. :p

I don't think Gael will be much of help to Richie :(
He isn't a choker.. but I don't think he cares about DC :tape:
Sort of Davy for the Russian team :confused: Will win only if the class is much higher.... :shrug:

Do you like any of the other Frenchies? Serra? Bennet'? Mahut? :)

silverwhite
11-22-2006, 03:37 AM
I don't think so either :tape: I think he wants to play DC but Forget hasn't selected him yet. :devil:

I like pretty much most of the other Frenchies, especially PHM, Benneteau, Santoro, Grosjean, Llodra. ;)

Oh yes. I feel pretty neutral about Simon. :shrug:

gulzhan
11-22-2006, 03:49 AM
I like Simon :) He is strange-- never chokes :lol: Fights and fights.. until the very last point.... If to have him and PHM joined, mixed and divided-- there would be 2 great top players :haha: and unbeatable DC team together with Richie....

I always thought DC is real bad for Gasquet.... Still do... But he seems to be very mmmh... determined to play there at his best :(

Also, what do you think of surface for Gasquet? He keeps saying he likes clay and wants to win RG.... But, don't you think grass is his surface and Wimble is the GS tourney he could win (some time in the future....... :lol:)?

silverwhite
11-22-2006, 03:53 AM
He talked a lot of crap before his USO match against Richard...

He's from the south of France, which has a strong rugby culture so he enjoys team events a lot. ;)

Nah, I still think clay is his best surface. Sometimes even on grass you see him play quite defensively as if he were on a claycourt. :o

This is what Simon said:

We are both very talented and I know he is scared of me. We are players who feel the ball. Richard and I don't have any limits when it comes to tennis. Our levels vary greatly (from match to match), from the best to the worst. It's just a question of confidence.

:tape:

gulzhan
11-22-2006, 04:02 AM
yep, poor guy, trying to convince himself he is not worse :lol:
sorry for him but the difference is huge and that is not about confidence ;)

but they all tell something like that, no? i thought it was sort of expected from the players to say before the match-- i am not weaker, i am as strong, i feel great bla bla bla....?

too bad about clay :o i don't like it at all... ok, hard? maybe he should pay more attention to hard? he is great at going to net!!!! why he does not do that more often? :mad:

silverwhite
11-22-2006, 04:08 AM
The thing that made me :speakles: was "I know he is scared of me." :o

Well, RG is on clay and you know how much it means to the Frenchies. :p

I have no idea. It's often like that with players who have a lot of variation. They need time to learn when to play which shot. For example, it took a long time before Mauresmo realised that she could win a lot of points at the net and that's how she won Wimbledon. ;) Currently, Richard only goes to the net often during Davis Cup, when he is forced to by Forget. Hopefully, Forget will manage to influence him. :o

gulzhan
11-22-2006, 04:13 AM
yep, i sort of have a feeling that it's a coach thing.. :(
he should play at net, it's perfect for him, and it's very rare now....

also, he needs to do something with his first serve, it really sucks! well, i am sure he knows that himself....

i finally managed to meet you, SW! :lol:
thanks for chatting! :) i am off to my morning coffee.. have a nice day :wavey:

and where is balloon? :confused: i wanted to talk to him about masha :angel: :)

Forget should just quit as DC captain and coach Richard :lol: Well, he grew up on claycourts so that's probably why he's so comfortable staying back. I mean, the first time he played on grass was 2003 or something. :o

He served really well during the grasscourt season last year but then he had that stupid elbow injury and he couldn't serve for a long time so he had to start all over again.

:wavey:

You can talk to me about Masha. Just don't expect to have a positive conversation. :devil:
