I missed chatting with you too. :) But I wasn't very chatty in the last months or two. I'm swamped. I've been working so hard it's amazing I'm still conscious. ;) And I can only hope for some respite at the end of March.

Kratochvil sadly looks like an also-ran in terms of tennis stardom. He has great ball-striking ability but you can't afford to have such a shaky second serve. It's cost him in many best of 5 set matches; not least a 2-1 break lead over the Farmer at Wimby 2002 where he then lost 5 straight games! Had he not messed up then he might well have made the semis of that tournament and be ranked a bit higher to say the least.

Because Sluiter is a Davis Cup hero of sorts for the Dutch.

I hope they let him play reverse singles against Micha :D

You're right, usually Sluiter is very good in DC... But today, Roger was too good for Sluiter. I also would like it if Sluiter plays sunday (It's good for Raemon to win that match.... And for me it's good because I like Raemon more as Martin, and I will visit that day of the DC)
Congrats Rogi, you played very good ;)

I've heard that the Dutch crowd has been beyond malicious, especially one really obnoxious guy who keeps shouting out when the Swissies are trying to serve. They are completely furious to have to put up with this, and so am I.

I'm half-hoping they will remove the crowd if it goes down to a fifth tomorrow. It's not fair to the players to have to put up with a bunch of childish, obnoxious brats who can't behave themselves. :fiery:

Yeah, it was terrible today. Especially one man who was shouting the whole time when the Swissies served. I hate it if they do that. Hopefully tomorrow those people are not there.
By the way, today there was someone who had an hart attack (or something like that) in the crowd, they couldn't play tennis for a few minutes. I don't hope I will have a heart attack tomorrow, I want to see all matches ;)

Holland was quiet good today. Better as evrybody expected. Verkerk had very good serves, and also good returns. And I think Haarhuis is almost always a very good double player.
Roger was not as good as yesterday, his servicegames were broken 3 times, Bastl has never been broken this match.

and what they said?that it's strange that he now coaches the swiss?

Nymeria
02-08-2003, 09:52 PM
They said: They really would like to play against France, because he coachs the swiss now. I don't remember the rest they said.

Lindsayfan
02-08-2003, 09:56 PM
swiss would like to play against france cos their actual coach was the former french coach and he knows all our secrets? :eek:
swiss said that or just commentators?

Nymeria
02-08-2003, 09:57 PM
No, just the commentators. I did like it's weird, if I was that coach I wouldn't like.

Lindsayfan
02-08-2003, 09:59 PM
i'm sure he doesnt want to play against France..french DC captain Guy Forget said today that he doesnt want to play Switzerland to not see Deniau (the coach) on the other bench.

Hey Lindsayfan, yeah I know you don't like it Switserland won, but it doesn't matter me, I like both. I did love it to see Roger being happy, but it was sad for all the Dutch people they lost. It was weird, I was the only one of all the Dutch supporters who did support Roger.
I think France have a difficult opponent in next round, because Roger and Kratochvil are very good.
And again I don't know who I will support, I like France (with Clement) and Switserland both.

BIG BIG COMPLIMENT MICHEL!!!!!


Great win. Honestly I had my doupts when I heard you had to play Verkerk. And the first set didn't change my impression. But hey you proved me wrong!!! THANK YOU for putting up a great fight and for never giving up!! You really showed a great fighting spirit out there today. And I'm so happy for you!!

TH you would've loved his speach!!!

He said: This win is for the team, for myself and for all the ppl supporting me in bad and good days and I don't care about the others!

Loved it!!

As for the coach Deniau well you ppl keep forgetting that he coached the swiss team before!!! About ten years ago yes when Switzerland reached the final against the US he already was the coach. Apparently he seperated from Swiss Tennis due to a conflict - sorry have no clue what it is - but he said when Rosset called him he didn't have to think twice.


Now good luck Switzerland agaist France!!
Get that revenge!!!
