Layla
02-07-2003, 10:50 AM
Bye Kimmyfan! :wavey:

I wish this was Ferrero vs. Olivier. :( I would kill to see that match.

Don't you have this on tv?

Layla
02-07-2003, 10:55 AM
Ferrero leads 4-1 :) double break up

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:00 AM
Ooops, Christophe broke back. His first break of the match.

02-07-2003, 11:08 AM

Go belgians , come on ....
Do they play 3 winning sets or 2?

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:13 AM
Thanks. :)

They play 3 sets. I like the Belgians. Too bad they have to play the Spaniards, who are my absolute faves.

1-1 in the second set. Juanqui under a bit of pressure, goes 0-30 down before winning his service game

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:15 AM
second set? ??? I thought they all ready played the second set

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:16 AM
Ooops, sorry. I meant the third set. :o

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:16 AM
haha it's forgiven no problem ...

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:20 AM
After a long game, Christophe wins his service game.

2-1* Rochus in the third ;)

lin
02-07-2003, 11:21 AM
Go Juan Carlos :D

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:22 AM
I hope Christophe can win this set, so it would be a bit more exciting

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:25 AM
Well, Christophe leads 3-2* still going with serve.

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:26 AM
hmm good!!! sounds like music in my ears. Go Christophe

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:30 AM
Well, you got your wish. Juanqui got broken! :eek:

Rochus leads 4*-2

Don't lose it now Juanqui!

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:32 AM

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:33 AM
5-2* Juanqui serving to stay in the match

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:34 AM
Is this really happening hihi ......

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:36 AM
I'm afraid it is.

Juanqui managed to stay in the set though. Vamos, break him back!

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:37 AM
So 5-3 or still 5-2?

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:40 AM
It was 5-3, but now it's 5-4 because Juanqui broke back! :bounce:

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:42 AM
Damn, ... Come on Christophe this is your chance

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:45 AM
Shit, the scoreboard is down just as Christophe had a set point on Juanqui's serve. :eek:

Vamos Juanqui, don't give up!

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:46 AM
Not on this moment aaaaaaaarrgggrr

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:46 AM
Nevermind, Juanqui saved it and levelled the set to 5-5.

And now he broke Christophe to love to go 6-5 up.

Juanqui will serve for the match! :)

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:47 AM
snif snif that hurts....

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:53 AM
I'm sorry about that. :(

Juanqui saved 2 break points but wasted a match point.

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:55 AM
That's sport .... you win or loose, there is no middle way pitty What's the score now?

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:55 AM
I don't know. It was 40-40, but the scoreboard seems to be stuck again. :(

esther
02-07-2003, 11:56 AM
Congrats ferrero :)

6-3 6-2 7-5

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:56 AM
Damn I just see at eurosport webpage that he lost 7-5 in third set aaargh.
When does Xavier malisse start? I hope he'll have more luck.
If he doesn't play wel, belgium doesn't stand a chance at all

Layla
02-07-2003, 11:58 AM
Did he win? My scoreboard is still stuck.

Congrats Juanqui! :kiss:

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 11:59 AM
yes 7-5 third set

Layla
02-07-2003, 12:01 PM
Sorry about Christophe. :( Still wish it was Ollie though.

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 12:02 PM
Me too Layla. I like ollie more and he's more competative.
So when does xavier start?

Layla
02-07-2003, 12:09 PM
True! I adore Olivier and I wish I could see him play more often.

I don't know when the second match starts. I can only find the start of the first one. I assume it will be soon after this one. My scoreboard won't launch again, so I have no details.

kimmyfan
02-07-2003, 12:16 PM
Gotta go, it was nice meeting you!!

Layla
02-07-2003, 12:19 PM
Yeah, nice meeting you too. :) Have a good day! Come back for the second match if you can.

Yep, that's exactly what I said two days ago. I was hanging by a thread. But I recovered slightly because I took a day off. So does that mean you can relax a bit?

vaiva
02-07-2003, 12:49 PM
I think I can afford several hours :o
Probably I'll extend the pleasure to more than that and next week will be in trouble :D

Never mind. Time for big tennis! Actually, I think I'll manage to see some of Belarus vs Israel tie on Belarus TV :D

Layla
02-07-2003, 12:58 PM
You should take a few hours off, it helps immensely. I'll be in trouble until the end of March anyway.

Experimentee
02-07-2003, 01:17 PM
How come Ollie didnt play? Hes better than Christophe and had more of a chance to win!

vaiva
02-07-2003, 03:38 PM
So the play has resumed.

Carlos took the 1st set on a TB (no score indicated?)

And then the second set 6-1 :D

Vamos Moya!

Layla
02-07-2003, 03:42 PM
Keep going Moya! :D

kiro
02-07-2003, 04:20 PM
How's it going now?
are they playing the 3rd set?
Vamos Carlos

Layla
02-07-2003, 04:29 PM
The 3rd set has gone into tie-break, which they're playing now, but I have no info about it.

Layla
02-07-2003, 04:32 PM
Apparently Moya has a match point! :D

kiro
02-07-2003, 04:34 PM
Carlos :)
Go Go Fight~ :bounce:

Layla
02-07-2003, 04:35 PM
(17:30) : ¡¡¡SAQUE DIRECTO!!! ¡¡¡PUNTO, SET Y PARTIDO PARA CARLOS MOYÁ!!! El equipo español obtiene los dos primeros puntos de individuales y se coloca a un paso de clasificarse para cuartos de final de la Copa Davis.


I think that means he won! :bounce:

Layla
02-07-2003, 04:37 PM
Yep Moya won 7-6 6-1 7-6! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Well done! Spain has taken a 2-0 lead. :)

02-07-2003, 09:48 PM
Is that the same as the ugly tie dyed looking crap that Roger was wearing at the Australian Open?

As much as I'm rooting for Spain and Moya here, nobody deserves to win while wearing that shirt.

Nacho
02-08-2003, 12:53 PM

What's happening to the Spanish??

Layla
02-08-2003, 04:09 PM
I have no idea what's happening.

Belgium leads 2*-1 in the 5th set, with a break. I have a bad feeling the Spaniards are going to lose this one. :(

KFS
02-08-2003, 04:16 PM
The Spaniards are going to win this round anyway..... ;) But I believe they will be a little bit disappointed if they cannot achieve a clean sweep........

Layla
02-08-2003, 04:23 PM
They fought back to lead 4-3* :)

KFS
02-08-2003, 04:26 PM
Good effort.... The crowd must be doing a lot to cheer up Alex & Albert!!!
