My Sunday Report:

Although there have been only 4 matches today they all were quite interesting. First I went to the club at about 11.50am but then saw that all matches begin 2pm :( I didn't saw any player I know so I had to do a long walk through the park. First on the centre court was the match between Economidis and Pampulov. This match was quite ordinary - the greek won with 1 break in each set. There was one strange case in the 2nd - Pampulov was serving - he did an ace but the lines-man called it out, the umpire went to see the mark and corrected it - but decided first serve not an ace :eek: Pampulov tried to argue, but actually in the replay of the point he did a double fault. At the end of the match he didn't shake umpire's hand and told her to go to learn the rules! She answered that she hope to hear his apology when he checks the rules.
The second match was between Peppas and Dimo Tolev. More people came and the match itself was very interesting. Tolev was making so many errors at the beginning - actually he was 2-6 0-3 behind in the match, but then he won 7 consecutive games (4 breaks :eek: ) before the Greek came back in the match. At the end Peppas was sooo frustrated with his game and loss that he broke all his 4 racquets Babolat in one post near the court :eek: :eek: OMG - he was furious. After that I heard from someone that he is 100% lucky loser and will play in the main draw!!! Poor Solon!!!
After this two matches I went to see if someone is still playing on court 6 where the other two matches were scheduled. Very unathletic Recourerc and a young cute guy from Italy were playing 3rd set with the frenchman leading 5-1. I felt very sad about the Italian because he was playing with so much passion. He actually lost :(
When leaving the courts I saw Janko Tipsarevic with his girlfriend (she suckz) - I was ready to talk to him that I saw his match against Philippoussis at US Open but I didn't take the plunge :(
I also saw all bulgarian players who will play here. Both singles and doubles main draws where made today. Top seed will be Hernandez but maybe he will withdraw because he is playing today final of other challenger tournament today.
