I'm going up a day early so I can see his round one match against Enqvist.

I will take LOADS of pics ;) They are scheduled on court one, and not center, so I will get to sit close :)

Yay, Rebecca. There needs to be an :envious: smiley so I can use that. I'm always jealous when people get to go to the tourneys I can only see on teevee. :)

We may get a peek at Court 1 tomorrow, but I'm not holding my breath. I hope Juan Carlos can defeat Thomas Enqvist--I want to see him this week!

have a great time! i hope Juanqui can win it! should be a fun match whatever the outcome!

If you do get a peak at court one, I'll be the big geek in the blue hat with "HEAD" written on it, who is foaming at the mouth sitting behind Ferrero's chair.

07-30-2002, 05:29 AM
we'll have to look out for you on TV!

Are you too crushed, Rebecca, to tell us about yesterday? :(

Well I'm home for good now :p

I will just write my Ferrero reports in here I guess..

First Round -

I sat through an entire set of an absolutlely pitiful effort by Costa (who was spanked by Spadea) in order to get right behind his change over chair, because I'm a pig.

I wasn't in as much awe as I was when i firt saw him live last year, but I was still in some ;) I took about 20 pics during that match btw :o and I limited myself to 10 the next :o I will scan in the best ones and post them in a few weeks time.

Anyhow that match was a real nailbiter. I think it was the first set that Ferrero was up a break, then lost it? But won the breaker anyhow. Then the second set he was down a break, I think, but broke back and lost the breaker.
he was down a break in the 3rd really early on, but broke back right away..

Thomas had a match point on ferrero's serve at 4-5, but Ferrero held and then broke...

They both threw away a lot of chances, and made errors at times they couldn't afford to make them - Ferrero was realyl really lucky to pull that match out.

Thomas hits harder off the ground then Ferrero does, he serves better, he just doesn't move as well,a nd he isn't as consistent - I think that Thomas made more errors. If Enqvist hadn't made that many errors, Ferrero would have lost.

Ferrero is actualyl a lot mroe animated on court then he seems to be onTV. He argues with the ref, rolls his eyes and bitches about line calls, smashes his racquet off the net :p, and seemed to be playing hackey sack with the tennis ball before serving :confused: He sort of bouncedit up with his foot, then his knee, then rolled it over his shoulder onto his head, then off the other shoulder :confused: If nothing else it was really cute :p

The crowd favoured Ferrero SO much that I felt bad for Thomas ;) I was shocked sort of as i thought Thomas would get a lot more support then he did.

I didn't get an autograph, because I got one last year - which is good cause I wouldn't have lasted in the hoard of people waiting for him. Such a change from last year, when few people showed up for his third round match - the court was packed for round one.

Round Two-

Even though he beat Ferrero, and is about as exciting and flashy as a cement block, I like Koubek. He's quick, he fights out for every point - he doesn't seem to have one big weapon, but everthing is solid.

He was too consistent off the ground for Ferrero. Ferrero made way to many errors, he just wasn't with it. Koubek wasnt having the best match of his life or anything, he was just solid, and that was enough to beat Ferrero that day.

Ferrero has a damn good serve sometimes though, its underrated. His serve is thee only thing that kept him in that second set. He won a whole game where he didnt' have to hit ball after the serve. Then the next time he served he maybe hit one ball.

He looked a little down of course, but not crushed or anything. I wasn't even that upset beleive it or not :o I even cheered for Koubek today.

A note about the Devil - aka Younes ;)

Younes I decided is cool. He has a huge fro, and makes funny faces and sticks his tongue out.

I just can't hate him, even though he is evil.

I'm tired and just got in over an hour ago from three long days - you guys can ask me whatever you want about my few days though, and I'll be more with it tomorrow!

oh and I should add - he's soooooooooooo beautiful :o

I mean I think he's good looking anyways, but in person, when he's coming on court and his hair is all neatened up, and he's just so *sigh*

I'm sorry I no longer have any intelligent though going through my head :o.....

08-02-2002, 05:04 AM
LOL! wow, i'm so jealous! his 1st round match must have been so exciting, i was on the edge of my seat just looking at the numbers change on my computer screen!lol! i couldn't believe how many momentum shifts there were, and then how Juanqui saved a match point! that was impressive!

but you weren't crushed about Ferrero losing to Koubek? i was a basket case (i practically used up a whole box of Kleenex in one night!) and Layla was upset so she got drunk!lol!

anyway, i can't wait to see your pics!

did you see the Haas/Sampras match tonite? that was the best match! i would have killed to be there live!

08-02-2002, 05:15 AM
I know Juanqui is so cute in real life... sorry to intrude, as I was the evil one who wanted his autograph :p
Becca I didn't see you at all during the first round match :o I was scouting for the "HEAD" cap, with no luck though :(

:D thanx :D

OMG, I gotta see Juanqui in person, I don't care what it takes. Why doesn't he play in Umag????? :sad: I'm gonna get Moya to convince him how great that tourney is.

Rebecca, thanks for the reports. The image of Juanqui playing hackey sack is now permanently lodged in my brain. ;) I know what you mean about Koubek, I kinda like him too. He endeared himself to me in his A0 match against Novak. He tried so hard, threw himself after every ball and gave more than he got. But still, I can't believe Ferrero lost to him!!! :eek: I figured he had an attack of unforced errors again.

So I'm the only one who hates Younes now? :eek: Oh well... :fiery: @ Younes :p

08-02-2002, 02:26 PM
I almost forgot. I have a VERY important question! Does he ever smile? He's always so serious. :rolleyes:

08-02-2002, 05:14 PM
Rebecca, many thanks for the reports. I'm with you, Layla, altho right now I'd kill to see ANY tennis live. I think I'd faint from excitement just being on the grounds :D

I can't wait to see your pictures and get your answers to these questions. Did you get a picture of him walking on court? I can only imagine . . .

LOL at the animation! Sometimes he gets uppity on TV, but you're right, not often. And I agree that the linecalling has been abismal, though some of the players go overboard.

Layla - he doesn't smile while playing on court - but he smiled a lot when he won and he smiled while signing for the fans :) He had a LOT of crowd support, so it'd have been weird if he didn't smile after that ;)

I got several pics of him walking onto, and off of court, facing me while walking to his change over chair, shaking hands at the net - it wasn't hard to get a good pic, I was maybe 8 feet from his chair. :drool:

He rolls his eyes a lot at calls hehe :p And his little shuffle dance was really cute :p

Static, did you get an autograph? I got one last year from him, which is why I didn't seek this year - I was merely on a picture patrol this year :angel:

He did have unforced errors a lot against Koubek - as I said, Koubek was beating him off the ground the whole match, and his serve was the only thing keeping him in the second set.

I will still think Younes is the evil man, but he's just to funny and has too cool of a fro for me to hate him ;)
