The draw has been released ! Mario will play the Frenchman Saulnier in the first round and then he could face Hewitt ... wow pretty tough !! :rolleyes:

I wish Mario the best for this tournament, I hope he'll be able to cope with the early rounds and have a good run in this hard courts event... :cool:

AJMO MARIO !!! :bounce:

why didn't you post the whole draw sorry it annoys me when the draw is not at the start of the thread it makes it hell when you get to later in the tournament and need to check to see who else he can get, andywho i've seen worse draws, other than lleyton thats not an entirely bad draw and i think he can beat lleyton if he puts his mind to it esp as lleyton hasn't played since davis cup when he was destroyed
and still got his mind on his mrs i hope! the thing i don't like about that draw is that rafa and richard could play in rd3 :bigcry: (but he could go out to a qualifier who knows?). I've seen much worse draws and there are players there i would have died if he'd had played but he's not actually too bad he's not in a section full of hard courters i mean (13) LJUBICIC, DENT,KIEFER, , MASSU, SPADEA, MARTIN & AGASSI, in one section! if he'd have been in that section i would have die so look on the bright side guys!

I do notice his bad draws from time to time, but it's because I like Mario that I'm more concerned over his draws :p

anyway, in my eyes, the draw is full of tough fight, it will be very wonderful just like a big party, and of course, Ajmo mario, i want him to be the focus :aplot:

lyv2005
08-07-2005, 05:33 PM
bad draws?! who cares about the draws? the only thing to be interested in is his game. if he plays good, he can beat a lot of good players. i liked very much what marat said once in an interview: the only thing he cares about before a tournament is his opponent, and than the next one and so on. he never thinks of the entire draw (in fact he said he doesn't want to know it)..so i take his example it's a good one...

Éowyn
08-07-2005, 07:29 PM
didfference is marat can beat anyone on any surface on his day! mario is not at that point yet, especially not at hardcourts he rarely wins one match on hard let alone 2 and 3 so most draws are hard on him! so it DOES matter Iyv, it matters ALOT

:kiss: dears, i agree with lyv, now that the draw has been that, mario needs to do his best to fight against the opponent including of himself; and dear JJ is right too, mario is not strong as marat ( omg, i cant think of him with happiness :sad: ) so dear mario will learn much from the match, no matter how tough the match will be :hug: first believe in yourself, then to play, for us also :hug:

I think you got me wrong. First, it's Lyv with L not I :rolleyes: then, you're right about the difference of quality between marat and mario but that doesn't mean that mario or anybody else should focus only on the draw. i think it's more important to try to play as good as you can irrespective of the opponent, thinking positively and trying to forget about the "value" of your opponent. It's important for the spirit. If you begin a match or you think before a tournament that you have to face only tough players you develop a sort of complex. It's well-known that many players had or have complexes when they meet certain opponents. It can be fed or someone else.. For instance if you think like: "next is federer so..no matter what i do i surely lose.." you'll never get too far. So first thing to do is to build a solid combat spirit and focus only or MOST on your tennis not on the draw...it's lost of confidence and energy...

did i say that he SHOULD have a fucking complex? i don't think i did! i said it is a difficult draw and it DOES matter coz it DOES affect your confidence! whether it should or not it DOES! it's a FACT you have to deal with that! and you're still wrong so get it right next time then come and argue with me. as for your name i appologise but on the premium black and gold it shows as I for soem reason!

of course that the draws matter u can't say that...it's not the same if u get Federer in the 1st round or in the semifinals for example. of course it's not only the draw and they shouldn't have complex but read more carefully b4 u accuse Eowyn of saying that cos she didn't mention that.

hi guys! just wanted to say i'm having fun in montreal and i got pics for you no matter how crappy they are. he had a gigantic fanbase at his first round match!

i stalked him all day today at practice cuz he was with novak djokovic and the bryan twins practicing nearby and such. :) he got a hair cut and he looks gorgeous & i *think* he might have found a new coach or someone at least remotely interested in doing so, will tell you more later.

oh, and he also thinks i'm a freak cuz i made a face at him while trying not to burst out laughing at the sight of him and i was too shy to ask him for an autograph/picture so i'm rather sad about that, but erm...w/e. expect a long report on friday. :banana:

anyway, :kiss: dear pryss, i miss you so much :hug: and come here asap to share our dear mario ;)

pryss
08-10-2005, 11:07 PM
okay. since i have an hour to kill before i can see Rafa on TV here, ill just write about chunchi :D

so on monday i got on the subway around 9 in the morning (doors open at 10), meaning to get there by 9:30. but then of course, subway breaks down so i only got there at 10:30, and i had to wonder around for a good 25 minutes until i found court 5 and somehow i decide to sit in like the worst seat ever although there really wasnt that many people in the beginning...oh well. :retard:

the players got there at 11 exactly. saulnier came in first and then mario came in right after him, i kind of freaked out cuz i thought he would enter by the other side of the court but there he was walking right in front of me. i think he kissed his necklace or something.

he is soooo gorgeous :inlove: *thud* and nowhere as lanky as people make him to be.

Mario took a quick scan of the crowd and i was about to laugh for no reason at all so i pulled a face instead. erm...he looked away. oops.

he looked really good during the warm-up. his forehand seemed to be working well :D he was wearing that navy shirt with white sleeves and yellow stripes on the side that my sister thinks is so hideous (i love it!)..and eh...he won the toss and he chose to serve. duh.

nothing that special happened during the match, Mario talks to himself a lot though. there were a few croatian people in the crowd and they kept chuckling and such whenever he did that but i had no idea what he was saying so....:rolleyes: i even thought he would throw his racqut on a couple of occasions, but that never happened.

one funny thing happened though. saulnier hit an outball during the first set and that ball bounced back and went right up Mario’s shorts :lol: it was hilarious when he tried to retreive it but kinda pushed it up even further...he didn’t seem too humoured there ;)

now for the maybe-coach part: half-way through the match this old man came in dressed all in Nike with a video camera and a notepad and sat right beside me. He had a tag, and i think his name was Boris ________ (can’t remember the last name..something Croatian though) and it said "coaching department" on it! he was recording Mario’s moves for the most part and making notes at times, too. It's a big maybe though.

second set tiebreak was murder, cuz he was down 4-1 or something in the beginning, and he blew a couple of match points i believe. bleeehhhhhh anyway he won it 10-8 and he left the court really quick, he only signed a couple of autographs that were like thrown into his face and he just hopped onto the cart and left.

Tuesday i went there real early and waited at the door. Mario practiced at 1 pm on a really far court that no one can really see with Novak Djokovic, who is only like my fourth favourite omg. Since they were both so tall they just like jumped over the fence with no problem at all, but this other guy (i think he was with Novak) had his crotch stuck there....poor man :angel:

anyway some other man that i thought was maybe a coach possibility #2 showed up. he spoke English (no accent) with Mario and they mainly focused on his volleys. they seemed really friendly, they kept spanking each other with their racquets :lol: mario's shirt came off half-way but I DONT KNOW WHY I HAVE NO PICTURES OF THAT *hits self* ugh. i hung around for the entire hour and a half cuz Julien Benneteau (my imaginary boyfriend) was supposed to show-up and Mike and Bob were there and so was Takao Suzuki and all. Mario probably just thinks I'm stalkerish.

So there. that's my story.

Pictures when i get home on Thursday!

Éowyn
08-10-2005, 11:22 PM
i love julien just wanted to say that! if he had a video camera he was more likely to be from the croatian tennis federation! we'll see though.

i'd love to have seen the ball incident i'd retrieve it for hm if he was struggling i'd probbaly have said something like that when watching and had him stick his tongue out at me again :lol:

i had a croatian guy sitting next to me during his match with danai at wimbly and he was translating everything he said mostly swearing at himself saying things like "one fucking centimeter" and "did you even fucking see that do it again" he's so sweet :p and he alwyas kisses necklace before he goes on court it's so cute!

glad you enjoyed it :) and look forward to more reports!

linus
08-11-2005, 04:18 PM
i am so struggled now if i stare at him, how could i leave the tv and type something here :haha:

Éowyn
08-11-2005, 04:22 PM
hence why i won't be on when he plays i like to watch him and concentrate on him and then throw things at him (well the tv) when he messes up!

linus
08-11-2005, 04:28 PM
hehe, my dad will shout at him if he did, i am sure of that of course in Chinese :haha:

and i could just cry and say something sweet or stupid just like what we ''said'' on msn, dear JJ, you could know :aplot:

Éowyn
08-11-2005, 04:32 PM
hehe i get very upset my when boys mess up and i get very angry when people mess them up with their rain breaks richard and taylor were both robbed by the umpires not knowing whne to stop for rain :mad:

if they do that today i'll fly to canada and kill them!

ajmo mario beat greg you know you want to then you get to be on tv again :p :baby:

linus
08-11-2005, 04:37 PM
my dear mum was so sad for richard and pray for mario again and again though she must have fallen asleep when mario plays :kiss:

anyway, rain wont come any more, everything will be right.

but i so hate his 1sf esp when they gathered in one servegame, god bless, today

Éowyn
08-11-2005, 04:47 PM
i don't mind when his first serve goes on holiday it's when it kidnaps his second serve and packs it in it's suitcase too that i get worried about him! i worry less when i can see him though coz i know how he's doing then! but we'll see ajmo mario go baby go :baby:

linus
08-11-2005, 04:58 PM
you know, his 2nd serve was not good enough either, i just need greg wouldnt be too wonderful today, then they are allowed to show show show, but, mario needs to win in the end :haha:

Iza
08-11-2005, 05:30 PM
Ajmo Mario break Greg :rocker:
2*-1 for greg BP 4 :baby:

linus
08-11-2005, 05:35 PM
omg, whats the matter around mario?

so tough a game of greg, 6 deuces? he has such some wonderful returns and passes, but but he was not able to catch the 4 bps

omg, i am worried about him, dear, not lose anything

linus
08-11-2005, 05:37 PM
:sad: he want to lose the set quickly maybe :sad:

linus
08-11-2005, 05:45 PM
omg, lose another 2 bps :sad:

i see he is trying but must something unsure of standing in front of him, me too :(

linus
08-11-2005, 06:27 PM
in 2nd set, a new mario born out *wow*

more confidence, with more comfortable rhythm :D

a decisive set is coming and greg serve first, dear mario, Ajmo, here!!

Éowyn
08-11-2005, 07:08 PM
sorry but that was pitiful! that smash was ridiculous and you could see in his eyes when he missed that it was game over!

1/7 break points converted (which was actually a double fault) following a game that was 2/12 is just not good enough, he played well and didn't take his chances he needs help mentally and even sky sports said why the hell have you then gone and hired a coach who has never worked with an attacking player!

sorry but that was just completely pitiful, greg did not play anything special (despite what sky sports seems to think) and mario played much better and just didn't take his chances :mad: he looks like he doesn't know what shot he wants to play and the choice on the smash was just ridiculous you had the entire court and hit it out, at the end of the 2nd set he had made just 10 errors compared to 26 winners, i wonder what it was at the end coz i would suspect it probably doubled the errors at least :sad:

:sad:

he just play a good set in 2nd, the first and the last one, he seems ''very childish'' (my dad's words) though everyone can get that he will be a good player sooner or later

:sad:

he wants the win, we can see it, but he is lack of some confidence though we have so much cant be sent to him

:sad:

he seems a lil bit out of himself, since wimby, i still not hold a clear and happy him

he doesn't know what he's doing mentally i donesn't know what shot he wants to play an dthats his problem it's not his game it's his head and he needs help with it! and i seriously don't see how Fredrik is gonna help with that! i'm really disappointed in him right now, he didn't play badly by any means he's just not taking his chances and thats not good enough it's really not, i'm so angry with him right now he doesn't even deserve a nice yummy shirtless pictures in the avvy he gets a pitiful pictures now silly baby! i'm so disappointed and i want to go and hug him and fix his brain!

:kiss: :hug: dear mario, from me and dear vero

take it easy, you into the 3nd round already and get so much from the matches, at least now you have a few days to do something better

but but plz believe in yourself, nothing to lose, you can do everything, if time is necessary, yourself is the key :kiss: :hug:

he can't win matches if he doens't take beraks though he has to learn to take his chances :sad: and this was his best chance of getting arun in a TMS match with no marat, no roger, no andy and no lleyton, he could have had a nice run to the semis and really pushed his ranking up!

it will go up anyway an di think he MAY have overtaken ivan in the race, but really he needs to work much more on taking the breaks to lose a match you have outplayed your oppeonent in and went an entire set without dropping a point on serve is just wrong :bigcry: i'm so disappointed

linus
08-11-2005, 07:40 PM
:hug: dear JJ, from the match, if he win, he is too lucky (in my dad's words) so, let it be, we can see him, can watch him play, need not to watch the scoreboard and worry about what has happened,

when i watch, even i couldnt do anything like that we did on msn, i know lose is coming but have nothing to do except waiting to see :sad:

:aplot: my dad shout at him again and again, but i can see he likes him so much :aplot:

i threw a cushion from my chair at him (well the tv anway) when he missed that smash i'm just so disappointed :sad: i don't want to be angry with him but i am he hurts me when he does things like that

linus
08-11-2005, 07:46 PM
though i love him so, but for tennis, he is not good enough on the court, i dont know whats the matter, dont know how long we still need to wait, but he should do something different to pull him up from the unsteady serve and unware of how to take so so many chances, omg, really too many, my dad was so angry with it, he shouted ''bad guy, whether you know what the chance mean? you know? chance! chance! chance is everything but just stay for you a second, and what are you doing, where is your racquet, you spirit, you fight? bad guy!!'' and so on :haha:

linus
08-11-2005, 07:50 PM
of course i am disappointed just like you, but he of course would lose just as that he played on court, greg is not good at all, let us see greg's dfs, so many, but mario is worse even, he played with fire and put us into the fire too, omg :sad:

Éowyn
08-11-2005, 07:53 PM
i would rather he played badly and lost than played well and lost he frustrates me more when he plays welel and loses coz i know he shouldn't have lost!

greg did not play anything special and did not deserve to win it mario served really well in the 2nd set especially and dind't do badly in the 3rd but when he missed the smash you just saw in his expression that he gave up he just looked like "shit i cna't break him back" and gave up and thats what disappoints me

I'm so disappointed with mario, again :sad: I didn't watch this match, the last one he lost and i watched was against pavel in the davis cup, and i know what you guys mean,seems that everyone but mario knows what his problem is. He starts great,and then loses himself somwhere along the way. he missed so many chances and after the match he declares that he played well and felt good,everything was good other than:HE LOST! :confused:

Éowyn
08-11-2005, 10:35 PM
thing is he's right! he totally outplayed greg and SHOULD have won
but he couldn't take the break points he can be proud of how he played (except for that smash) but he needs to start taking his breaks he's not the only player who has that problem andy is exactly the same his problems are mental and thats why i wanted him to get a coach who can help him mentally :sad:

lovemario

I feel that mario is still so weak mentally that he always needs someone to tell him what to do or sth like that,i can't explain how he plays so much better the doubles with ivan in the davis cup,and when he plays singles he creates so many chances,but just can't finish what he started. The croatian comentator said that his opponents know how dangerous he can be,but that they just have to play and wait for their chances cause sooner or later he starts to make mistakes,that's why he usually loses the match cause of his mistakes or lack of concetration,not because he is outplayed.

It's sad but it's true :sad: Mario is the only one who can do sth about that! :sad:

Ya, but it's obvious who's doing a better job,look where's andy and where's mario. What's strange to me is that he is so calm outside the court when he speaks about the matches,but it's different on court. I think he feels he's doing the things right,he says that win will come cause he's improved is game and that's the most important(which i agree) but he still isn't where he wants to be. By the way,he said that long time ago!

Éowyn
08-11-2005, 10:58 PM
actually by recent form i'd say mario is much stronger than andy! and thing is mario is less frustrating than andy! only good thing andy is doing is when he's losing he's losing to my other players :p

he is right though he will win eventually and it will come to him but he has to get his head right! i wonder if he still calls goran before matches coz if he's not he should it'd hel him out

lovemario
08-11-2005, 11:28 PM
he is not frustrating to me.athough my nerves go wild when i watch his matches :cuckoo:
i love it when he shows his emotions,just like goran. I think they are friends,but i think he adviced him more when he was younger,maybe in the dc, goran asn't in split against romania,but he promised to be there for the semis,i think he gives a lot of positive energy to the team,cause he is always so crazy,i mean that in a good way

08-12-2005, 12:29 AM
mario always used to call him and says he still does before big matches so i wonder if he classed this as a big match, coz he's never reached the quaters of a TMS match so it would be big for him! yeah goran should be in split for the next one so hopefully get soem goran on tv at the same time :woohoo:

i don't think he called goran before the matches, it's just sth that journalists ask him all the time when they compare him to goran,maybe he talked to him sometimes, but to call him always,c'mon.

maybe in cincinatti mario will have much more luck, i mean...maybe he'll take advantage on his opportunities... it's just completely annoying to see him losing against an older and not that fit player

08-12-2005, 07:36 PM
exactly we'll just have to wiat for the draw and hope

pryss
08-12-2005, 07:41 PM
supposedly 50 more minutes until the draw comes out! *crosses fingers*

i almost hope he gets a hard draw. it seems to me as if he does really well under pressure but as long as that pressure is gone he eases up and melts away, or something :sad:

the below from his 2nd set, coz he was so wonderful that i could capture more with calm emotion, esp the first one, it is so funny :aplot: during the break after 1st set, i went to toilet so hurriedly but when i back, couldnt find him on the chair, i asked my dad about it, my dad answered me ''you both are very in agreement even including doing such a thing'' ;)
