Btw in case anyone's wondering who's the freaky girl who just started posting; :p I've actually been a member here for a little less than two years. I just haven't been posting much anymore. My name here used to be just virgil but I lost my password so I had to re-register. Also I'm digswing at wtaworld, so persons who've been around longer'll remember me. Hi, Scotty. :)
Hey I'm another person who's been around longer :p

Scotso

Still worried Ange? :p

5-2* Dechy :D

Hi Virgil, you didn't seem that freaky to me.

virgil23
01-22-2004, 03:42 AM
I read that no-one's had a double bagel in the 21st century and gone on to win the slam. However Justine got one too so if everyone gets one I guess it cancels itself

Oh that explains it. Well there's always a first time for everything. :)

Scotso
01-22-2004, 03:42 AM
Hey V :D

virgil23
01-22-2004, 03:43 AM
Hi Virgil, you didn't seem that freaky to me.

I didn't say I was being freaky but I know when I was posting more regularly if someone just popped in and started posting away, with me never having seen them post before or them not introducing themselves; it'd seem weird to me.

Scotso
01-22-2004, 03:44 AM
omg Jaslyn is winning :eek:

Angele
01-22-2004, 03:44 AM
No I'm not worried anymore Scott :p

btw Hi V, this is Angele... I keep forgetting about my new username :o

virgil23
01-22-2004, 03:45 AM
Hey V :D

:kiss: How are you dear?

Oh great Angie because Marl told me everyone went on some *porn* name change :p and I wasn't sure who exactly I was talking to. Well hi. :)

Jess
01-22-2004, 03:45 AM
Right I really have to go to bed now :o falling asleep at computer.

Hopefully Lleyton is just as effective as Kim in beating Kucera.

Goodnight everyone :wavey:

Angele

Danni
01-22-2004, 03:46 AM
any post match interview Danni?
Yup!
KIm said that someone in the crowd was saying "c'mon, give her a game" and Kim's like "well what am I supposed to do? Hit it into the net?!" lol. and she said that she thought she played perfectly and really enjoyed it. Yesterday the ankle flared up a bit :( and that was also because the tape irritated it, but today it felt fine. Kim said the chick she's playing next will be tough cos she's tall and has a good serve and I think that was about it......no gooberish quotes anway :p

Scotso
01-22-2004, 03:47 AM
Douche is putting up a fight :D

Danni
01-22-2004, 03:48 AM
oh, and the guy goes "so it must be good having your mum and dad here" and kim's like "um, actually my dad's in Belgium. :rolleyes: :p "

Scotso
01-22-2004, 03:48 AM
I'm doing pretty well, yourself?

Angele

Thanks Danni!

Kim is so adorable :angel: I thought she was trying to give the girl a game at the end there though lol I'm glad the ankle is good today but I had a feeling it had flared up after her last match :( Hopefully it's getting better though and this time it won't flare up as much and it'll keep going that way!

Maybe some gooberish quotes in her press conference *crossing fingers*

Stop smiling, that's not a good thing :p The more of a fight she puts up, the more of Venus we're gonna get on tv :(

yay, LL's on court! :D

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 03:52 AM
And note to Kim's ankle: no swelling permitted until 2 Feb and preferably not even then. However, it does seem fine today.

Scotso
01-22-2004, 03:53 AM
I don't care, I want her to lose :p

Angele
01-22-2004, 03:53 AM

Well personally I wanna see some Lley or Kim on my tv so go Venus :p

Scotso

go Lleyt! :D

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 03:54 AM
Yay for Ll. I assume Ch 7 is showing it Danni? I might try to catch 20 minutes in a little bit.

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 03:55 AM
Oh look, Arthurs is playing a tie break, how unusual.

Danni
01-22-2004, 03:57 AM
Yep, it's on Ch 7

Lisbeth

It was over in about 10 minutes total, hun. :lol: :p Massacre I tell you.

Wish I could stay and chat about Lleyton's match, but I'm done with my 3rd final paper so far this week! So I have to go home now.

yep.....I wonder if she has it in red as well? wouldn't be surprised considering it's Fila :o
LL got broken! :(

virgil23
01-22-2004, 04:05 AM
Okay I know it's only two games, but I have a feeling Lleyton's match isn't going to go as quickly as Kim's.

Angele
01-22-2004, 04:05 AM
Lleyton :(

Angele
01-22-2004, 04:06 AM

I'm hoping the outfit is in blue only lol

Chesty Larue
01-22-2004, 04:07 AM
I suppose that's good about her ankle..but I would prefer if it stopped flaring up altogether :p

Danni
01-22-2004, 04:07 AM
Okay I know it's only two games, but I have a feeling Lleyton's match isn't going to go as quickly as Kim's.
well considering he has to play a whole extra set, probably not :p
plz break back LL!

Danni
01-22-2004, 04:08 AM
I'm hoping the outfit is in blue only lol
ditto!

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 04:09 AM
Hmm, not a great start but if I had a dollar for every time I've watched Lleyton start behind ...

Angele
01-22-2004, 04:09 AM
I suppose that's good about her ankle..but I would prefer if it stopped flaring up altogether :p
Ditto.... I guess we're gonna have to take whatever we can get though :p

Lleyt :rolleyes:

Danni
01-22-2004, 04:11 AM
let's just remember he's come back from 2 sets and a break at Davis Cup so hopefully he'll be right.

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 04:11 AM
As long as it's not in orange or yellow I'm happy.

C'mon Lleyton.

Well coverage starts soon for me so I'm off :wavey:

virgil23
01-22-2004, 04:15 AM
Okay what did Lleyton expect Kim to take longer so he was totally unprepared to come out and play? WTF is he doing out there? He's about to get bagelled. Maybe Kim's mojo is rubbing onto Kucera.

Angele
01-22-2004, 04:15 AM
Cya Ileana :wavey: hopefully some good results for you when you get back!

01-22-2004, 04:23 AM
How's he playing Danni?

Danni
01-22-2004, 04:25 AM
break point! take it LL!

Danni
01-22-2004, 04:27 AM
How's he playing Danni?
the thing that's killing him is Kucera's back hand down the line, and a lot's of LL's shot's are catching the net :(
first set 6-1 :sad:

Angele
01-22-2004, 04:29 AM
Ok come on Lley, re-group!

Murkofan
01-22-2004, 04:29 AM
:wazzup: peeps? :p

I'd hang out, but I've got school tomorrow, plus some errands to run, and I'm soooooooo tiiiiiiiiired.

Dunno if you watched it, Busty, but I'm glad Sam finally got the boot :p When he got fired, he looked like he was about to snap and try to strangle Trump :p

Kim lays the smackdown with a double bagel :eek: Impressive. Ll close to being bagelled, not so impressive :p Maybe it's because he's missing out on some mojo because Glynn and Chezza are watching Jaslyn get double bagelled :p

Els Callens is too good of a doubles player to partner with Hantuchova, who definitely has the "headcase" market cornered atm.

Anyway :yawn: Here's hoping Ll pulls his head out of his arse :p :wavey:

Angele
01-22-2004, 04:32 AM
Hey Marls.... I did watch, SO glad Sam is gone.

Hey Marly.

We've seen no live coverage on ESPN. That really bites.

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 04:39 AM
C'MON ROCKY!!!!

Friend's (well trained) mother reporting in by phone that crowd started singing Waltzing Matilda and the anthem at 5-0 down and Lleyton perked up at once.

Danni
01-22-2004, 04:39 AM
3-0 LL! :D

Angele
01-22-2004, 04:39 AM

:yeah: for your friend's mom, props to her for calling in with updates! Hopefully the crowd can keep Lleyton pumped up!

Angele
01-22-2004, 04:41 AM
ESPN's coverage is always bad but this year has just been horrible, the worst that I can remember seeing.

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 04:43 AM
Yeah she's great. She's just watching TV now I think b ut last week she was calling in the scores LIVE from Homebush!

Scotso

I really hope Raymond loses. She's such a bitch.

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 04:45 AM
What's so bad about it Angele? Sorry to hear it anyway, it must take the fun out of the slams for you. Ours could improve but it's not too bad in the grand scheme of things.

Angele
01-22-2004, 04:45 AM
*4-0, that's the way to do it Lleyton!

Angele
01-22-2004, 04:48 AM
Yeah she's great. She's just watching TV now I think b ut last week she was calling in the scores LIVE from Homebush!
Well it's an American network and they show all Americans all the time :( Like at the moment they are showing Venus' match on tape delay while there are live matches going on, including Lleyton and Roger Federer. I think the only live tennis we've seen at all was Andy Roddick's first match.

Scotso
01-22-2004, 04:48 AM
what a strange match so far

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 04:49 AM
this Douche girl has huge legs and ass

Can't comment but Venus should be used to playing that sort of physique ;)

I like it that many physical types can play tennis, it's healthy.

Danni
01-22-2004, 04:49 AM
Angele, that sucks!

Danni
01-22-2004, 04:49 AM
Kucera gets one break back, 4-1

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 04:50 AM
Yeah that would get annoying. I mean showing Roddick live is normal and expected (even outside America) but you don't need to see it 45 times when there's live stuff going on.

Thanks goodness for the internet, huh?

Scotso
01-22-2004, 04:52 AM
oh no they didn't. that is an all-time low.

Danni
01-22-2004, 04:53 AM
break point LL

Angele
01-22-2004, 04:54 AM

I don't know what I'd do if there wasn't the internet :o

I can totally understand that an American network would show the American players when they're playing... you'd expect that from any network for their respective players. But showing taped tennis when there is live tennis happening is just not acceptable :( If they really feel the need to show these matches they should start their coverage earlier.

Danni
01-22-2004, 04:55 AM
lol, LL bounced his racket and it almost hit him in the face :p
another BP

*5-1!

Lisbeth

I think the entire American media needs a good shaking. Thank goodness Australia mostly does its own sports coverage.

C'mon Lleyton!

Danni
01-22-2004, 04:56 AM
Kucera's double faults are killing him. 5-1 LL
The fanatics are there btw :)

Scotso

did you see the cutout of serena they interviewed.

that was just... stupid.

What's up with all the (0) next to the non-tiebreak sets on the schedule of play on the official site?

Scotso
01-22-2004, 05:01 AM
Jeff's one of the few players to beat JC that I still like :D

Scotso
01-22-2004, 05:03 AM
Canada has sports?

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 05:04 AM
:D Hopefully this means ll is playing better not just that Kucera is having a lapse.

Oh well, this is better than the other way round, inertia and all that.

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 05:05 AM
Hmmm, I'll bet that cut out had a lot of useful stuff to say.

They had Lleyton hugging this is the other day. It was kind of cute but it also only lasted 3 seconds.

Lisbeth
01-22-2004, 05:06 AM
Yay! A break to start the third set. I'm off but will be back in a little while.

Danni

Although I'm pissed at having to watch this, I'm impressed with the girl playing vs. Venus. I thought Venus would just roll over her but she's actually putting up a good fight!

Danni

Well they can't ask him because the Aussies need to ask him why he proposed to Kim (der) and the Americans need to ask him what he thinks of Roddick going skydiving.

C'mon Lleyton, you've had enough fun. Polish him off.

I can answer this one.
Rusty = Rusty Griswold from the National Lampoon movies by all accounts. The Hewitt family has been likened to the Griswold family by the Australian media.

what was said??
She talked a bit about the match today and her ankle, same old thing. Then they asked her if Lleyton had bulked up a little and she said yes that he'd been hitting the gym with Roger and she was turned one way and they brought in the cardboard cut out of Lleyton so that her back was to it and when she turned around she burst out laughing lol... they asked if that was accurate and Kim was like no, not quite lol. They asked if she and Lleyton prefer to play on the same day or not and she said they do prefer to play on the same day because then they have their day off together :hearts: :hearts: Then she showed off her ring and the ESPN guy was like oh she's actually going to show it to us and Kim was like yeah I lot of people have been asking to see it so I'm getting used to it :p

So, I didn't get to watch Kim or Lley play :mad: I saw a little of JCF but then the common room became full of Italian guys and all they wanted to do was watch the soccer :rolleyes: (apologies to any soccer fans).

But, well done Kim :) From the looks of that scoreline she didn't seem to have any problems. Although she did say her ankle started to hurt and I still think its worse than she is letting on, but a win is a win :)

Just as well I wasn't around for Lley's match as I would have been having heart failure in the 1st set! Well done for turning it around though :yeah:

If anyone saw the games and could offer some / any interesting commentary on how either of them played, I'd love to hear about it!

possie
01-22-2004, 11:46 AM
LOL at the whole Hewitt / Griswold thing :lol: We have watched all those National Lampoon movies and my dad used to always joke that we were the Griswold family, as we have done quite a few road trips around Australia. Plus our last name starts with G, so we're halfway there! Fortunately my dad hasn't tried to cover our entire house with christmas lights....yet :p

Yay for Lleyton, Kim, Pim-Pim and Todd...the latter's first five-set match according to the very interesting post-match Lleyton interview.

I'm glad that Ll. has some vocal fan support, b/c I think it really helps him settle into the match. He just seems so tightly wound at Melbourne.

I'm excited that Guga has made it to the third round and happy to see Safin up on Rod Laver today.:)

Also, a photo caption in The Age described Fabrice Santoro as "spiteful and spitting" against Philippoussis.

Can anyone confirm or deny this, please? I've never seen Fabrice exhibit either spite or spit to any great degree.

Can anyone stop Dominic Hrbaty?:bolt:

01-22-2004, 02:19 PM
I read a story in the Hearld that Santoro spit in the direction of the umpire.

I have seen Santoro be spiteful toward the umpire. He was playing Sampras at IW and thought he got a raw deal from the umpire. He was vocal about it and at the end of the match, he refused to shake the umpire's hand. Santoro is a fiery guy. :)

Please SOMEONE stop Hrbaty. ;)

And Go Tompa!

I won't cheer for my other guys here. :)

01-22-2004, 02:31 PM
lol...such admirable prudence. As far as I'm concerned, you can cheer away as long as he/they aren't playing Lleyton obviously.

Thanks for the info. about Fabrice Santoro's apparently considerable dark side :eek:. He sure is fun to watch. Spitting though?! That's just nasty.

Great tournament for the young swedish players. Robin Soderling with the big upset and Pim-Pim's great result. I wonder if he'll get a lot support against Ferrero, who seemed in poor form yesterday--about twice as many errors as winners.:eek:

Here's another scary one for you. Can anyone stop David Nalbandian? :bolt:

I like the Safina match up for Kim. Coetzer would've been a nightmere :o Kim always dominates Coetzer with like 6-1, 6-1 type scorelines but those same matches take like an hour and a half :p

Kim said last night she compares Safina to a Davenport type player..someone with some big shots..but doesn't really have the good movement. Plus Safina will hit a ton of UE's..all of it adds up to a shorter match for Kim.

I don't necessarily think it'll be an easy match for Kim..but it could be. She's still young and it'll depend how she handles the occasion. 2 years ago she played Serena second round I think..she managed 1 game :p Now of course it is Serena..but Serena isn't the type to bagel opponents simply cause she'll give you openings, she'll hit a lot of errors and a lot of winners.

Dean Jokes About 'Screeching' in Iowa

By PATRICIA WILSON, Reuters

LEBANON, N.H. (Jan. 22) - A hoarse Howard Dean joked on Thursday about his nationally televised outburst, saying his voice had not recovered from his "screeching" after he lost in Iowa, the first major prize for Democrats seeking the White House.

In fact, the former Vermont governor is fighting a bad cold.

Dean is trying to get past the arm-waving, screaming speech he delivered after finishing third in Monday's Iowa caucuses to Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry and Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina.

His performance has been widely lampooned on the Internet, and late-night talk shows, but it could also be a serious problem for his campaign, reinforcing his image among some as an "angry" candidate who does not have the temperament to be president.

"I have still not recovered my voice from my screeching in Iowa," he told a town hall meeting in Lebanon.

Dean has been dogged by the fist-pumping, sleeve-rolling, shrieking remarks. He has been asked about it in more than a dozen radio and satellite television interviews.

"The context was 3,500 kids waving American flags who'd worked their hearts out for us for three weeks, and I really felt I owed them an uplifting speech, so, I don't know what it looked like on television," he said in the interviews. "But I understand the audience wasn't shown, which is really too bad because it was really a terrific rallying cry."

"I have my warts. I sometimes say things that get me in trouble," he later added in Lebanon.

Dean, once the front-runner among seven Democrats vying to challenge President George W. Bush on Nov. 2, has fallen behind Kerry in polls in New Hampshire, which holds its primary on Tuesday. He once held a 20 point lead.

Kerry, riding a wave of momentum from his Iowa victory, has grabbed a three-point lead over Dean five days before the primary, according to a Reuters/MSNBC/Zogby poll released on Thursday.

Dean spokesman Jay Carson dismissed the polls.

"A lot can change in five days... He's going to be pointing out that he stands up for what's right -- regardless of whether it's popular -- and that he's delivered results and not just speeches," Carson told CNN.

Dean would not apologize for Monday night's performance, Carson said.

"He had a room full of people who had come to Iowa to work hard for him, to volunteer for him, he wanted to go out there and show his appreciation for the hard work that they had done. He did that, he was energizing them and we're not going to make any apologies for it."

But Dean has toned down his rhetoric and his delivery. Instead of rousing rallies, he is holding town hall meetings in New Hampshire, answering questions and forgoing the "red meat" of his previous appearances.

In Lebanon, Dean was on the verge of losing his voice completely. The Democratic candidates meet on Thursday night for a televised debate that could be critical to the New Hampshire vote.

"I'm going to become a frog if I keep this up," he said.

Very true. But she's still in, which is a big improvement over some of her brain farts in the past :p And don't forget that she's had to come through and win a couple of tough 3 setters, so her mental mettle has already been tested a bit :p

I'm still bummed Ai is out.
