I'm sorry, the article didn't specify that "normal people" don't have access to the videos.
It' quite frustrating, I saw there are about 10 videos available about the event and in particular a 41 sec video "David Nalbandian wins match" (with a capture of his match against Coria) and we can't see it. I'm sorry for the false info, I read it in a normal article from the UNICEF about the event.

Now there is the list of the available videos on the site, but it's for registered members only (journalists, etc.), which i didn't know.

Thanks for your welcome messages, I'm feeling like an "intruder" with my Coria avatar in this forum. ;) But actually, I like both of them, Coria and Nalbandian, and I also cheer for Nalbandian.
I can't write a lot in english, I just wanted to say that I often read what you write here in the Nalbandian forum and it's very informative, you do a great job, thanks for all the articles and translations.

Hi Truc and welcome :wavey: And please don't feel like an "intruder" - new visitors are always welcome here. I admit that I personally don't like Coria, but that's a purely personal view and not everyone here feels the same. We like to think oif ourselves as a bit of a "family" - and of course not all families agree all the time, but we always still care about each other. And your English is great by the way - hope to see you here again soon.

Yes - he's the best - he really does appreciate his fans. I go to loads of European tourneys so he recognises me now - and even after the ghastly loss in Rotterdam last month, he still took the time and trouble afterwards to come over and thank me for my support and wish me safe journey home - not many Top 20 players would do that.

Well - if the players can do it - then I'm sure we can too ;) I remember after the RG semi-final (when Gaston beat David), - one of the first people to appoach Gaston, to say "well done" and wish him luck in the Final, was David's coach - they all get on really well like we do - so I'm sure it won't be a problem.

As I've already pointed it out in the GG's forum, I wasn't thinking about us fans. I know we'll get along very well, no matter what happens. :) It's just that it's gonna be hard cheering this time because it's so rare to be wishing both players to win, whereas you perfectly know that one will have to lose.

Oh poor Jud - I'm sorry :hug: By the way - they keep on saying how windy it is in IW - hope that won't cause our David any problems. It certainly looks very windy on TV.

well thanks... but for me tonight no david. I have to lovely pleasure to watch first some hot ladies and gentleman in pants skating over the ice and doing some tricks... and then Davenport..

Well Jud, lucky you ;) , but even luckier for you that you have some friends that will keep you totally up to date with all the scores of David's match :)

I probably won't be on-line much during David's match. Being the "old lady" that I am, I'm not always so good at doing two things at a time- if I'm on the computer I tend to miss bits of the match and can't concentrate on it too well - so I might enjoy my first televised David match since Australia from the sofa with a nice vodka ;) - at least for the 1st set - see how he's doing uniterrupted.

A nice vodka...now Rosie, I am seriously worried about you...and Tiff thinks I have a drink problem :eek: :eek: , but actually you are right, it is difficult to concentrate on a match and type at the same time......

You don't have to worry about what I think. If you're a lush, you're a lush.

Is your scoreboard not working as well as mine? All I can see is the results from previous days :confused:
