they should make a few international channels where they send every match in every tournament so thats there always an interesting match is:D

Me too! Like last year they showed quite a lot of the ATP. So that's why I'm hoping Eurosport will change back to ATP next year. Enough of the WTA promotion. Men's tennis is usually much more exciting to watch, and NOT just because some are extremely gorgeous and lovely to look at! Most WTA matches make me fall asleep. I like to sleep in my bed, not in front of the tv!!!

So, Eurosport: BRING BACK THE ATP TOURNEYS!!!!!!!!!!! :D

yeah I agree. In Australia we get nothing of course http://www.mainzelahr.de/smile/boese/zeter01.gif (not sure about Houston, they may condescend to show some of Hewitt's matches but I doubt it), but definitely the rest of the time there's nothing except the Grand Slams. But I did notice when I was living in Spain that Eurosport showed way more WTA than ATP...why is that? I have never seen so many Capriati and Mauresmo matches in my life http://www.mainzelahr.de/smile/muede/123.gif

i think it may be because sky sports cover a lot of the ATP matches. They have all the masters series, davis cup, USO and other tournaments. I guess thats why :shrug: Are you guys able to get sky sports?

does anyone know if the shanghai mastercup was aired in australia?

~EMiLiTA~
11-11-2004, 05:27 AM
yep it was, think it was channel 7...and it was at a decent time as well since China is pretty much the same time zone. I think it was because Hewitt was there cos we didn't get Houston last year. That's why I'm wondering whether we'll get it this year...will have to check the tv guide...though even if they do show it, it'll probably be on at some ungodly hour :rolleyes:

No :sad: All I have is Eurosport... and then the Grand Slams are aired on Dutch channels, but they hardly ever show matches I want to see, they usually show the 'big' players that are already on Eurosport :mad:

1 alternate could probably not be enough! I hope they all can play and still be healthy after the match! Especially Carlos! I'd go crazy if he ruined his shoulder here and would miss Davis Cup final..... :awww:

~EMiLiTA~
11-14-2004, 10:34 AM
yeah I agree that 1 alternate is not enough...I thought they'd make it like 2002 when they had 2 alternates. This year's field is very dodgy injury-wise so they really should have taken someone else as well like Pim Pim

I read that too.... but I'm giving Charly the benefit of the doubt.... I'm sure if he feels he's not fit enough to play on, he'll stop. Otherwise, if he's fit, he'll play 100%

People say so much, and so much is based on rubbish! Of cours it could be true, but untill I've heard it from Carlos himself, I'm not going to believe it.

The warm up look nice! hahaha! It's 5-4 to Hewitt now...0-30 on Carlos' serve....so...not a good score to start with today!

At least today we can watch it at a reasonable time here in Holland! ;)

If Gaudio beats Hewitt but loses to Carlos, and if Hewitt loses to Federer and so does Carlos, won't all three of them be at 1-2?

So who would advance? (I bet this has a really obvious stupid answer.) :confused:

They will look at the games played I think....the games lost.... a set won 6-2 is better than a set won in a tie-break... I think..... :confused:

Well that's how Carlos looked :lick: As handsome as ever!!

What a brave brave fight!!! I'm so sorry that he lost this one :sad: Roger gave him plenty of chances to win..... :sad:

So now we have to sit and wait what Hewitt does! He wins, adios Carlos... he loses, Carlos goes through...I think...because he won a set of Hewitt and Fedex...

VAMOS GATOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Be a dear......GET HEWITT!

Carlos played great :worship: ! But today his best wasn't good enough! :sad:

I really hope Gaston wins that match, but it is unlikely, unfortunatly. :( Good job to Carlos. :) What he did was a achievement tonight. Since his 1st set loss to Agassi in TMC RR last year, Federer had won 16 straight sets at this tournement, and Carlos snapped that streak and almost broke his 20 match winning streak against top 10 opponents, so good for him. :)

Fedex
11-19-2004, 03:23 AM
Well, even though Moya's basically out of this tournement, and will not win it, he's still going to bring home a Davis Cup trophy for Spain, so we can still be happy. :) He's had a great year, this year. :)

Gaston has beaten Lleyton twice on clay and has taken a set off him on hard courts.

We'll hold our breaths and pray really hard.

Gaston can challenge Hewitt, and he leads the h2h 3-2, it should be 4-1. He'll need to play very well, and hit alot of high backhands to Hewitt's backhand (he hates that) and we may very well see Carlos in the semis. :)

I don't use to post in this forum but tonight I want to share my frustration and at the same time my optimism about Carlitos fitness.

before the MC many ppl were wondering if Carles would be enough recovered from his shoulder. Right now we know he is not only recovered but playing great tennis as well, sadly his lack of matchplay was the key in his matches against Lleyton and Roger. He was so close but he missed the BIG points. :sad: It's understandable considering how many months he spent without playing... But now we could be sure about who will be the leader of the spanish team at Sevilla next month.

I can't wait to see Carlitos "pateándole el culo a Andy" :devil:

At least he's in good shape for Davis Cup. And he looks hot. So, all in all, I think we can consider this tournament a success. :D

I'm somehow really proud of Carlos today!
Sure he lost in the end, but he didn't go down without fighting and made Federer earn the victory.

No matter what people say ("Federer served badly", "Federer played very late last night", "Federer made too many unforced errors"...) etc, but for me Carlos really earned this 2nd set and was playing not only great tennis in the 2nd set.

I was really pleased with Carlos' performance... at the end, Roger was just too good and didn't get broken again despite Carlos had chances to come back in the third set.


Yes, as previously said by somebody... it's frustration and optimism at the same time.

Good performance, Carlos! :clap2: :smooch: :D

Yeah, Carlos did great this year in this not so liked TMC. Remember how bad he looked last year in Huston. So a rest is good and he's refreshed. His forehand looks good! Roger can't match that so he made more errors than he usually does. But Roger is still better in placement, he's still so precise when he needs it.
I like the fact that Carlos played two tough matches against two hot players. But Carlos has not won one close match against top 10 in the last couple years so it's a problem with his confident level and mind, not a lack of match play I think. I even think the long rest is good to regroup Carlos' game.

I think he played really good yesterday! Too bad he didn't take those break points in the 3rd set, or it could have been a completely different story! But that's only 'ifs'... Still, I think he did great in Houston after being away for so long :yeah:

Now go kick some American ass in Sevilla!! :banana:

ok well I didn't even realise Carlos was playing last night against Rogi! This time difference really pisses me off lol. 14 hours it too much for me. Looks like he pushed Rogi tho! Took a set off him! Now we have to rely on Gaston :rolleyes: to beat Hewitt, which sadly I don't think will happen, but oh well...at least we can see that Carlos is fit and well and ready for Seville :yeah:

11-19-2004, 10:45 AM
I don't think that that will happen either, but still... Carlos played very well this week! That must give him a confidence boost for Sevilla!

At one point, when it was 4-1 for Carlos in the second set, Roger was playing very bad, and the commentator guy said that it looked like Roger was tanking the set... Come on, he could've at least given Carlos some credit! :rolleyes: I don't think that he was tanking though... he was just playing badly!

Oh, and Roger was scared of the grasshopper :lol: They had to get a ball kid to get it off the court, too funny!

I don't think is harsh at all, loret. "morder el polvo" in a literal translation might sound harsh but it really means just "to lose".

So I want them "que muerdan el polvo" (to lose). ¡y que gane España!

Well, even Guille played with more effort! And he had nothing to gain! Maybe a bigger paycheck, but nothing more!

Anyway.....Carlos played 3 great matches I'm proud! :worship: Maybe the lack of matches was a reason....like Roger said:" It's a pity. I think he had chances against both of us(hewitt&federer) to win. He ended up losing, and that's maybe because he's coming back from injury."

Go and get ready for the Davis Cup now Charly!!! ¡VAMOS ! :kiss:
