Thanks Happiness (Fati?) for keeping us up to date with this - and the Catalan lesson too ;)

I am so pleased for Tommy, as to be honest, 2010 was a horrid season for him. I really hope this gives him confidence for the upcoming 2011 season and proves that he's over his back trouble. VAMOS Tommy!!!

He is a very much under-rated player (like Ferru and JCF) who is playing at the same time as Rafa and Roger - not easy...

Hmmm - he's finally!!! written on his website about training in the Reunion Islands (OK I had to Google where they were) - nice place!

I really like it that he writes in Spanish, Catalan and English, sweetie!

Catalan is getting easier on me now, even if I can't speak, because it sounds totally different than what's written :lol:

Like Tommy said, when he was the first time in Open du BOTC (2003) his next Season was very good (2004), he's hopeful that may happen next year as well :D

Tommy knows that his fans like him and he always makes an effort to give them what they want :)

There is no live stream, but from the live scoreboard it looked like it was a bad first set at 6-4 Bellucci. Tommy's serve seems to be off compared to his first round match when he was popping off aces like crazy.

Robredo pummels Stakhovsky in the final set so it was 5/7 6/2 6/4 6/2. That least set went very fast. Well, Robredo's the veteran and when his heart is in it, he's going to outlast most of the players out there. Damn. Next up Fed - well, that's what happens when you're ranked 52. I hope he can go for broke out there and give Fed some cause for anxiety, however brief.

A little sad that Tommy lost to Federer once more :sad: though Federer had had to work hard to beat Tommy... but of course this Aussie Open was good for him, as a non-seeded player in the fourth round. Hopefully he'll win one or two titles in the South America again ;)


By the way the name of Tommy's new coach is Karim Perona:

About him he's already told us in his blog:

Most likely a normal student. I don't know (what I'd study) but most other people study so (if I) wouldn't be a tennis player, (I would) have chances to be a student.

Best moment on court?

Obviously when you finish a match and win, I think that's the best moment ... for me it was very special when I played in Paris Bercy (in 2006) the year that I was playing for (a place in) the Masters Cup in Shanghai, and I beat (Sebastien) Grosjean (in the second round) when I was a set and 5-2 down. If I was to lose this match I wouldn't be going to Shanghai ... that was a very special one.

Did you make a New Year's resolution?

No.

What are you listening to on your iPod?

I don't listen to music very often. I listen when I'm going in my car, or when I'm bored in the room I just put on my iTunes and just put random music ... The good songs that are there on the radio at the moment, things like that.

If you could pick any player from history to be your doubles partner, who would you choose?

Stefan Edberg - I liked a lot when he was playing, the way he was playing, I think he was a really kind guy, he was doing a lot for the sport ... I would like to play with him

Forehand or backhand?

Forehand.

Sweet or savoury?

Sweet - chocolate, ice cream.

Beatles or Rolling Stones?

Can it be another one? (He gets the go-ahead) ... Something modern.

Which actor would you get to play you in a movie about your life?

I don't know - someone who costs me no money and he can do it good. Because if I get Russell Crowe or someone like this it's gonna cost too much money for me to do the movie!

Nice to see that Tommy is the featured night match...and probably not just because he's seeded. I imagine he's very popular down in Chile. He has chances to win the whole tournament although he'll come up against Nalby in the finals hopefully. That would be a great match.

Ok, what happened between Fognini and Tommy? I knew there were instances during the match where they were yelling at each other and giving each other dirty looks, but Tommy refused to shake his hand after he won, and the crowd was booing him so loudly he refused to give the post-win interview. What caused all that? I was doing homework while watching, so I obviously missed something.

His behavior really was horrible. If Tommy didn't want to shake his hand, he had a good reason not to since that is not in his character to be rude for no reason. Secondly, if he didn't want to shake his hand, so what? Fognini was the instigator and kept following him around goading him on with his hand stuck out, then he started cursing at him. Fognini could have just shrugged Tommy's refusal to shake his hand and left, but he was mad about the loss and the arguments they had on court. I hope this fires Tommy up for tomorrow. Now Tommy looks like a culo. Oh well.

If Tommy didn't want to shake his hand, he had a good reason not to since that is not in his character to be rude for no reason. Agreed... I also find it hard to believe that Tommy would refuse to shake hands for no apparent reason. He also looked quite hurt when he was waiting for the interview and the crowd kept booing him :awww:

So... what exactly did Fognini do then? I had a very crappy live stream that kept freezing, plus the sound was horrible... not that I would've been able to understand what they were saying :lol:

Eruwen
02-06-2011, 07:59 AM
Wow, I just read the thread in general message... I honestly don't understand how people can be so harsh about someone they don't even know!

I really hope Tommy can use all this to his advantage today... would hate for him to lose a title over this. Then again... seeing how agressive he started played once the quarrel with Fognini started, that shouldn't be a problem :lol:

xohxmyx
02-06-2011, 09:10 AM
omg what happened?! i knew i should have woke up early to see his match...i just love sleep to much.

i really dont understand why so many people hate Tommy! I really cant think of a reason some people are so agressive over how much they hate him? he has done nothing wrong, its not like he is the type of player who is up in the other opponents face in a match if his winning or trying to course sh*t with the opponent to get a rise out of them. He does not go out of his way to annoy peple like others do, he seems to me like one of the most normal of the players....i mean he does get a touch stroppy sometimes on court when he disagrees with a call but so does everyone and tommy makes it entertaing :P

I've had people react so strangly to me when i tell them i like Robredo ...then of course i have to sit there why they call him "Boredo" and listen while they tell me how "gay" he is and how he is a "talentless mug/pusher/journey man" it confuses me why all the hate =S

BUT never the less i love him and all your guys on here do! so to me everyone else is crazy haha i am thrilled he made it to the final and i will definetly be up in time to watch his match! im looking forward to it! it would be so perfect if he could win to show everyone! to quote kuznetsova "F**k all haters" Tommy and win this thing!!! :)

Eruwen
02-06-2011, 10:49 AM
I honestly don't understand where all the hate is coming from either... I mean, if you don't like a player, fine - just ignore him! Why go out of your way to convince the world that he is the most evil person ever? And then, when players and tournament directors and what not actually say that he is NOT evil but very nice, friendly, hard-working, compassionate etc - people who actually know him - then of course those people are crazy.

They're probably just jealous or lead very sad lives to be spending so much time and energy on someone they hate :p

I do hope he wins this title now! I always hope that of course, but now just a little more to make a point :lol:

Happiness
02-06-2011, 12:15 PM
I agree with all that you ladies said here. The haters do live very sad lives indeed! :shrug:

Fognini's behaviour really disgusted me!!! How can this kind of situation happen in tennis, during and entire match, and no one does anything about it??? I'm sure that everyone in the court understood what he kept telling Tommy, since he spoke in Spanish!!! :cuckoo:

Answering you question Gaby, Fognini kept saying bad words and trying to make Tommy loose his temper throughout the entire match!!! Thank God Tommy kept his head and won!!! In the end when Tommy refused to shake his hand he simply kept yelling him "Pedazo de Mierda", which translated means "Piece of shit"!!! No wonder Tommy didn't do the post-match interview, when all the crowd was against him, and I'm sure they understand quite well Spanish to know what the Italian had told him!!! :fiery:

Eruwen
02-06-2011, 01:04 PM
Ok... that is indeed very strange that it went on the entire match... Kudos to Tommy for only reacting to it once during the match! To be honest, I think Tommy should have kept the honor to himself and shaken hands at the end. But when Fabio kept coming after him with his hand stretched out... that was a bit too much!

Poor Tommy :hug:

I don't understand why they let Fognini got away with it, but maybe they didn't wanted to cause a riot there!? :confused:

Maybe Tommy should have shaken his hand, but I mostly understand him. The Spanish (and also us the Portuguese) are latins, which means that we loose temper easily! And we really don't tolerate things like that!!! :lol:

I guess that Tommy simply showed he's human and didn't want anymore of it! ;)

No i disagree (maybe im bias lol) but i think Tommy did the right thing by not shaking hands at the net.
Its weird but in tennis to me, thats like the definitive way of showing your opponent that you have no respect for him/her, and why should Tommy show any respect to Fabio? He acted completly inappropriatly and insulted Tommy...it would have been completly hollow and pointless for them to shake hands.

It is like when Feli Lopez refused to shake Paes' hand after his doubles match...he had a problem with Paes so why go out of his way to be "nice" (for want of a better word) to someone you dont not respect?

But then that is just my opinion on the whole thing.. :angel:

It' clear that Fognini acted unprofessionally to say the least. He acted like an animal. But Tommy has a temper and his pride and I think he followed his instinct at the moment by not shaking hands which is what I would have done if I'd been abused an entire match. (if that's really what happened) The real unprofessionalism comes from the tournament referee for not interceding on Tommy's behalf during the match. That is simply unforgiveable. In not doing his job he made Tommy look like the bad one out there for not acknowledging Fognini at the end. And Fognini made it worse for Tommy by pursuing him. Not a good day for Tommy or tennis.

My sense of Tommy is that he has a bit of a stubborn streak about him and will use this to will himself to victory today. He's a pretty tough customer when all is said and done. :)

Xo, you've posted enough on MTF to know that there a lot of immature and insecure boys posting wildly in General Messages just to get attention. They don't like Tommy because he's good looking and he models. And they're not a fan of his game. But there are also decent posters who like Tommy but know not to get involved with haters. You'll never get rid of the haters so why not just ignore them. Anway, it's not like Tommy sees what they write. :p

Yes, I am a die-hard David Ferrer fan, but Tommy is his pal and I am so glad for Tommy as he had a horrible 2010 (like D's 2009) and just hope he goes further throughout the year - AND is chosen for Davis Cup!!! :yeah:
He has done a lot of hard work and needs his successes! Enhorabuena Tommy! :clap2:

More pleeeeze? Just kidding. Only if you want to.

They're not that short. I was thinking vintage Bjorn Borg, Vilas and that era - where they were high up on the thigh. Oh would Tommy look spectacular in those. However, he looks great in these. Nice and tight and butt-hugging. He has beautiful legs. :drool: Ok, I need him to win his next match so I have something else I can celebrate. :)

Did you not watch the match against fabio in brazil? If not...you missed out! They were short and kept getting shorter :lol: he had to keep stopping and pull them down between points...i think they were annoying him..I however(an im sure im not alone) enjoyed it quite alot! ;) haha

No I didn't see the RobFog match unfortunately. I surely did miss out - can't imagine him having to pull them down between points - must have been pissing him off. :D

I am not surprised Tommy lost to Pablo Andujar - Pablo is a good player with an aggressive net-charging game which gives Tommy problems. And Tommy was coming in off the win in Chile and had no time to prepare- didn't have a bye. But then Andujar goes and loses 1-6 0-6 to Ricardo Mello. :rolleyes: What a waste of an opportunity.

Tommy made a huge effort last week to win Santiago and it payed off, but it had a reverse side, less time to rest. He was really tired on the match against Fognini, he had a leg bandage and he had a medical time as well. Plus, he played till nearly 1 a.m. (local time), and afterwards as usual he had the post-match routine. Less then 24h after, 6h30 p.m. (local time), he was playing again. I'm amazed he took it to 3 sets, considering he lost the first one. It's sad to see him loose, but at the same time he can now rest a little more and prepare himself better for Buenos Aires :)

Here we go. Hopefully Tommy is now rested and ready to go deep in this tournament. He's got Nalbandian lurking around for later on and Almagro (who should be tired from his win in Brazil) so if he brings his best stuff to BA it could be a good run. Nice to see him at 31 and hoping he'll pass a few more guys with his results here.

He's withdrawn--both from this match, and from Miami. I am curiously calm about it; he has defended his points here and can now spend a month making sure he's properly recovered for clay season. Better to be properly better and kick serious backside come Monte Carlo than run the risk of exacerbating it, right?

This will NOT be a repeat of last year. *sings 'Always Look On the Bright Side of Life' as hard as possibly can*
