Considering that only 900 tickets were put on sale isn't so strange they were sold in an hour... People from Sevilla is absolutely pissed off, and I can understand why :rolleyes::fiery:

Would the spanish crowd monkey-chant again if (hypothetically) McEnroe let James Blake play...? :p

Maybe the Spaniards really are sharpening their knives. Nadal will wear a red T-Shirt like a matador holds a red cape and slay the the pond creatures. They will then be paraded around the stadium and subsequently cut into tiny pieces so that all the hungry spectators get to experience the sweet taste of success.

Forget the threads on how Roddick will do next year. Here's my prediction - he'll be swimming inside the bile and digestive juices of 26,000 stomaches. I bet Duck will never taste so sweet. :)

:D Mine is ready, since everybody said Sampras is boring and too dominant.

But its really great so see, that tennis is (still) so popular in spain. Great news for our sport! Now lets hope for some great tennis.

I wonder how Roddick will feel when he gets 26 000 people giving him the chorus music when he walks on the court, it's something that he has never had to put with before, and I hope for him he doesn't question too many calls or they will give him some treatment.

Hewitt handled it and it spurred him onto play better in Barcelona, but somehow I don't see it having the same effect on Roddick.

True, but I'm sure there are many more mentally weaker players players than Roddick who could handle this situation probably less well because even in critical situations with match point against him Roddick doesn't hold back. But then again you're right there is a difference if you are under pressure because due to the scoreline or because the crowd gets on you.

This is the big league and I have seen Roddick look clueless too many times on clay to think he is going to handle this experience very well. I mean this crowd will be worse than anything he has ever had. Do you remember the last team to beat Spain in Spain? It was Brazil and they had to have one of the greatest claycourters of all time in their team to do it.

The difference is Roddick usually feeds off crowd energy when it's positive and not the reception he is going to get in Sevilla. It would be better for him to just shut up and concentrate on his game and not fuel the fire of the fans, they will give him the music there is no doubt about that.

Then again if he serves at 70% first serves and 20 aces in a set, then he will shut them up. :)

It will give the match atmosphere.

That's really unfair.
If you're not going, then don't buy a ticket and let the real tennis fans have them!

This will be equivalent to what the Barca fans at Camp Nou when they play Real Madrid. Just alone that is enough for me to watch this.

I might even prepare a Spanish omelette and have the sangria ready.
