02-05-2005, 08:51 AM
when is the draw released? can't wait to see it!

02-05-2005, 09:38 AM
yeah, Fernando will also be there...hopefully they can play doubles together

I think the draw will come out tomorrow

02-05-2005, 12:09 PM
OH NO! Feliciano has to play Fernando in the first round :eek:!

02-05-2005, 12:31 PM
you're joking?!?!?!?! :banghead:

02-05-2005, 01:13 PM
No I'm afraid not :(

And I also don't like that Joachim Johansson is playing JCF in the first round!

Somehow they managed to draw all my fave players into the bottom half! ARGH!

02-05-2005, 02:14 PM
yeah I saw that too! and also ancic is playing hrbaty...aarrghhh what a crap draw!!!

02-05-2005, 03:06 PM
OH NO! Feliciano has to play Fernando in the first round :eek:!

WHAAAAAAAAAT!!!!! this is officially the worst draw ever!!!!! :mad:

02-05-2005, 06:30 PM
Yeah FreyaM you're totally right :mad: I hate when two my faves are playing together (Nando, Feli) and when it's more of them (Nando and Feli + JJ and JCF) I'm going mad. And if it's happening in first round..... :shout:
:awww: I just have no words!!!!! It's so unfair :crying2:

no way!!!!! :explode: well certainly, I hope Feli will win.... :scared: .... omg JC .. :awww:

02-06-2005, 09:43 AM
I think Feli will win...but neither of them deserves to lose first round http://www.mainzelahr.de/smile/boese/sauer_2.gif

02-06-2005, 11:53 AM

Pants is all I can say

02-07-2005, 06:43 PM
He won 7-5 6-3!! Go Feli!!!

Too bad for Fer... I was going to be sad no matter who won :sad:

02-07-2005, 06:48 PM
Phew - I'm so relieved he won. But if it's Söderling next round, I'll SCREAM...

02-07-2005, 07:38 PM
Go Feli! :yeah:

it's strange because I just so felt it will go 3 sets you know, but looks like Feli just decided to get a full revenge for their 1st meeting :p well, Im happy Feli's thru...2nd round, Soderling or Karlovic :rolleyes: quarter, Nalbandian probably :o semis...Pimpim probably :rolleyes: :o ....unless JC you just beat him tomorrow.Ah, it can hardly get more cruel.

02-07-2005, 09:00 PM
Hopefully Feli can go far in this tournament--I think his ability to finish matches has come a long way!
I recall a few matches last year that he should have won but let slip away.

Someone mentioned the pants--is he still wearing them?

02-08-2005, 04:55 AM
I think you are right loret...Feli has a good chance to go far in Marseille. He looked good in his first match.

02-08-2005, 05:09 AM
wow! i'm really happy for Feli :bounce: but sad for Fer :tears:
Please Feli don't lose 2nd round!

02-08-2005, 06:51 AM
:yeah: Well done Feli :sad: Fer

:eek: Soderling in 2nd round!!!! he's in form, won Milan last week :scared:

02-08-2005, 07:49 AM
Well done Feli :bounce:

Please beat Soderling now :angel:

02-08-2005, 11:09 AM
Congrats Feli!!! shame u had to beat Fer but oh well, one of you had to lose...

now go far in this tourney!!! win it!!!

02-08-2005, 11:59 AM
hey guys, I'm pretty sure Feli and Nando won their doubles against Suk and Vizner 6-4 4-4 ret. i got the info from this site http://www.open13.org/R3_public/R3-1_fr/R3-1-1_frame/F3-1-1.cfm so see what you think...but I say they won...which is great news!!! :banana:

02-08-2005, 12:48 PM
They won their doubles match 6-4 7-6

Also I found these two pix yesterday's match on the Marseille website.

So, Feli's not wearing the long pants anymore :)

02-08-2005, 01:31 PM
yes in the end it was 7-6...not 4-4!

02-09-2005, 05:22 AM
:bigcry: about the long pants!
Fer looks surprisingly well in Adidas *rushes to the Verdasco forum*

02-09-2005, 11:12 AM
yeah...I see Söderling pulled out of Marseille! Now Feli has to play Ivo in the second round...I think he can beat him! VAMOS FELI!!!

It smells like tie-breaks from very far in this match, I hope FeLi will manage to win the points in the important moment, it really is like that with guys like Karlovic or Pimpim who win 95% of points with their serve...Plz Feli - do it like last time! :)

02-09-2005, 06:32 PM

02-09-2005, 07:25 PM
c'mon c'mon you can beat this guy!!!! :bounce:

02-10-2005, 04:16 AM
yes, he plays first up on Centre Court at 11am...hope he can get to the quarters!!!


02-10-2005, 10:08 AM
YEEEHA! Feli's just won the first set in a TB! :bounce:

Now c'mon win the second real quick!

02-10-2005, 10:45 AM
YES! Feli just won 7-6 6-4! :)

so happy he used his chances exactly when he had to, cool now lets see if its Dent or Bandy comin up.....victims :devil: ;)

02-10-2005, 10:54 AM
great news for Feli!!! bien hecho!!!

in the quarters he'll either have to play Dent or Nalbandian :scared:

also >> Feli and Nando are playing doubles third on court 1 starting at 14.00 against Bachelot and Clément...VAMOS CHICOS!!!

02-10-2005, 11:46 AM
With the way Feli has been playing lately, he can beat either Dent or Nalb...they tend to let their heads get in the way at times.

02-10-2005, 11:51 AM
VAMOS FELI!!!! It's gr8 that u beat Karlo and didn't lose just after beating Fer :yeah: ! Now Nalby or Dent! VAMOS! U can do it! Win this tournament! :rocker:

02-10-2005, 12:02 PM

02-10-2005, 04:41 PM

thanx for the :hug: but I might not have strength to follow the semi, I'll go crazy ;)

02-12-2005, 09:27 AM
wow! looks like it was a great match! bien hecho Feli! I had my doubts about this match from the start. Now it's Pim Pim - even harder. I saw their previous match live at the AO and was disappointed with the outcome...now Feli must get his revenge!!! Get to the final!!! VAMOS FELI!!! DALE!!! :banana:

02-12-2005, 09:29 AM
thanx for the :hug: but I might not have strength to follow the semi, I'll go crazy ;)

Yes, me too! And I still have so much work to do before going to Rotterdam tomorrow! Where Feli better played a brilliant first round match!

Thanks for the nice pics!!!

But: Don't they make those shirts sleeveless? ;)

02-12-2005, 10:10 AM
yeah I forgot to say, he looks really nice in those pics!

02-12-2005, 04:11 PM
:woohoo: Feli's won the first set! I never expected that! And I can't stay here to follow the score coz I have to work! :(

02-12-2005, 04:31 PM

Feli, you really blew it at the end :sad:

I really will be witing for the day when he gets his revenge.

I feel a little sad too...
And my bet is all gone :bigcry:

NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not a second time!!!!! :bigcry: :sobbing: :tears: :crying2: I hate my life!! lol no it's not that bad actually. I REALLY didn't expect that won first set, and I got big hopes then...
A hug for myself and all the other poor disappointed Felifans :hug:

Johansson is going to be the biggest trauma for Felifans in 2005!!! Grr

I think Feli just lost the intensity towards the end of the 3rd set, and in the same time Johansson lifted his and became agressive. Something similar happened in AO - both times Feli just couldn't quite bring himself to make a final effort, and Johansson well he just kept consistency in his serve games in the end, so the outcome is like that. I hope Feli will have more patience next time, cause it's obvious that he's as close as it gets to beating this guy.
Plus, the 2nd set tie-break was a mini disaster compared to the way Feli played the 1st breaker - he was up 2-1 and had 2 serves to go 4-1, and instead he double faulted and then hit a regular smash out... :scared: that was OUCH!

well, hopefully he'd be able to draw conclusions after those 2 matches with Pimpim and beat him next time :p

02-13-2005, 10:39 AM
*sigh* looks like Pim Pim is going to be a bit of a nemesis for Feli in 2005...at the AO Feli was 2 sets to 1 up against him :( and this time he was again close :( oh well...maybe third time lucky...semis are still good. On to Rotterdam now :banana: no pasa nada ;)
