Hi all you Pimsters ;-)
Just a short note from Madrid again. Pim Pim played great today against Dupuis, even if I did not give him a Pim¡s for support...
Just have to tell you one little story: Yesterday when Pim Pim played Willy Cañas they played in a small hall which was not permanent. Suddenly it started raining so much and it dropped into the hall.
Pim Pim and Willy did not want to play further in this "weather" (haha) and so the match was interrupted. The officials where coming with hair dryers etc. to dry the court and both Pim Pim and Willy could not believe it, they maybe thought they were in a fun magazine. Anyway, the match had to be suspended and Pim Pim and Willz left had to leave the court. After 1 hour they came back and finally the match could have played to the end with a happy ending :-)))) Today Pim PIm played on the same court and suddenly there was sand on the court. He was only laughing and everything was just so funny!

Tomorrow he will play Ljubicic and the match is luckily on Center Court, so I guess Pim Pim will be happy .... :-))))))

More news when I am back in Germany as the Internet Cafe is closing right now :-((

oh man...:mad:i hate it when Pim Pim loses the close matches. 7-6 (2), 6-7 (1), 7-6 (3) is just too close. the double-fault things is true :rolleyes:. At least he can still qualify for the Masters Cup. Here's an article from the MS Madrd website:
_____________________
Ljubicic out-guns Johansson in Madrid serving struggle

• Nalbandian is also in semifinals after beating Dent in straight sets
Madrid, 22th October 2004 (dpa) - Ivan Ljubicic went into the semifinal of Masters Series Madrid after beating big server Joachim Johansson by 7-6 (2), 6-7 (1) and 7-6 (3).

"As the match got close to the end, I was winning more points on his serve than he on mine. That gave me extra confidence in the last tie-breaker. He finished with a double-faults -maybe that was the trademark of our match- all or nothing.

Ljubicic, who defeated Johansson in the second round at the Athens Games, now stands 34-21 as he awaits an opponent from fourth seed David Nalbandian and American Taylor Dent.

"Playing the Hamburg (clay) semis was a much bigger surprise than this," said Ljubicic. "Everyone knows I can play well on indoor courts. I beat (Rainer) Schuettler and (Tim) Henman back-to-back. I don't see why I can't go all the way."

Johansson arrived in the quarters without having lost a set this week. The Swede remains level with Roddick for the most indoor wins this season (13) and with a ranking of 11th still has a chance to qualify for November's eight-man Masters Cup season final.

David Nalbandian is the second player in semifinals. He has beaten Taylor Dent by 7-6 (4) and 6-4 and will face tomorrow Ljubicic for a place in the final match.

As rude as it sounds, it makes me mad that he can't capitalize in big opportunities like this. I mean, this was his chance since Federer and Roddick weren't playing.

Hi everyone,
just wanted to write a short note and let you know that I am back from Madrid!
It was a great week with lots of Pim Pim!
Unfortunately he lost today, but I was not that sad, because I had to fly home yesterday anyway, and I think Pim Pim was also happy to come to Stockholm.
I was very happy that I could see the match on friday, even if that day was meant to do some sightseeing in Madrid...But you have to set priorities...*smile*
Unfortunately I did not have a chance to see him after he lost and to talk to him and wish him good luck for Stockholm...
But Pim Pim is just a great guy and I love him!

I hope my pics turned out good (am not so sure about it, because it was an indoor event and there often many pics turn not out that good as you expect) and I will post them here!

BTW, I also love PIM PIMs haircut and I really hope he won´t cut it. It is just perfect as it is right now, he looks so great when he wears his hair open...

Jexy
10-24-2004, 05:06 PM
That's great! you had so much fun! :p Too bad you didnt get to wish him luck afterwards, but there will be plenty of other tournaments and I'm sure you'llbe able to wish him all the best then... hehe
