Hurrah! He won his match! Hate tv for not showing the tournament in Tokyo! Why, why, why??? Who cares about women's Kremlin Cup???
Thanks for the pic, Marine. Is that really Grosjean? I think I miss the long hair...

he's wearing blue! *amazed* he never wears blue lol...i think i like it

ubrunjensen
10-03-2003, 12:04 PM
At last! He won the QF against Gambill.
Got a little worrid when he was forced into another tiebreak. I think he ought to be able to beat Srichaphan - a shame, really, coz I like the Thai player - but imagine Seb in a possible final vs. Schuettler...
Can't help but dream about our guy winning the title!

esther
10-03-2003, 12:05 PM
semi match will be VERYYY tough...wont get hopes up with will be so very proud if he wins

ubrunjensen
10-03-2003, 12:09 PM
Like blue, it's my favourite colour, but love him more in white and red.
Are you able to watch tennis from Tokyo, Esther?

esther
10-03-2003, 12:21 PM
ha nope...i wish!! is good because melbourne is only one hour behind japan.

we only get Madrid and Paris this month...i dont even have cable but know a lot of people who do so i scab off them hehe

ubrunjensen
10-03-2003, 12:28 PM
You only get Madrid and Paris???
What is that, some kind of joke? I wish I would get 'only that'...no Danish channels show tennis apart from the Grand Slams, and Eurosport seem to focus entirely on WTA and Grand slams!
I'm afraid I won't see him until AO in January.
Would forget how he looks if it weren't for all the pix in this forum...

Alison
10-03-2003, 01:24 PM
I think you're just rubbing it in now Esther ;)

In England tv companies(and most of the population ;) )think tennis is only played for 2 weeks a year;at Wimbledon :rolleyes:

And Eurosport seem to have a blanket ban on the Tokyo tourney :p They don't even tell you the results on Eurosport News :mad:

Good result for Seb though :cool: It looks like that early exit from the American gave him the break he needed :D

esther
10-03-2003, 02:16 PM
lol yeah we got NO tennis last year but techincally all i see is DC if australia plays and Grand Slams and the aus tournaments...i only see other matches if i can get people to tape for me so its still hard.

oh but alison if you got sky sports, they were showing heaps from what i saw when i was there!! ie Spain vs Argentina DC *drools*

esther
10-04-2003, 08:01 AM
AIIIIEEEEEEEEEE
INTO FINALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WILL PLAY SCHUETTLER!!!!
that was a tough match to follow...didnt think he would pull thru after losing first set against SCHRICHI but oohhhh i'm so proud!!!!!!!!!!!!
:D :D :D

*thinks about masters cup*

esther
10-04-2003, 08:02 AM
hmm all pics look the same as yesterdsays so wont post them lol

Alison
10-04-2003, 08:41 AM
Great result :D That was well worth getting up for ;)

Esther,we haven't got Sky sports cos there's too much football on it.I HATE football :p ,but I may have to go next-door to watch my neighbours tv when tennis is on ;)

Good luck tomorrow Seb :) And to think he didn't want to go to Tokyo :rolleyes:

esther
10-04-2003, 08:49 AM
hehe yeah
read his interview he said he wouldnt regret it only if he won :) so cute

Lizan
10-04-2003, 03:07 PM

youre so lucky lizan!

esther
10-05-2003, 08:50 AM
Well Seb lost...6-7 (5) 3-6
but i'm happy with final. Cmon seb...all this hard work you CANNOT do badly in Madrid or Paris!!!

ubrunjensen
10-05-2003, 10:04 AM
Snif, he lost to Rainer...
When he pulled thru against Srichiphan I got very optimistic and couldn't help but believe he would eventually win the damn title!
It sucks, though, to lose against Rainer, of all people - on the other hand: a final is always welcome, and he seems to be on the way up again. Let's hope this means great performances in Madrid and Paris. He could do with a win - almost a year ago that he won in St Petersburg.
Eurosport will show Lyon??? It would've been wonderful news, only...the tournament starts tomorrow, right, and Wednesday I travel to Málaga for my autumn holiday! My boyfriend will probably have a fit if I insist on watching tennis while on romantic holiday with him...poor baby, can't really blame him!
Does anyone know if Eurosport will show Madrid and/or Paris? I pray they will...

Seb lost :sad: but I absolutely adore his new haircut! :hearts:

Marine
10-05-2003, 12:23 PM
He he, do you know his new nickname ?? ..."kakkoi" !! ==) cute in japonese !! :lol:
It seems (according to "l'equipe") that Seb charmed japonese girls with his red shirt and his cap !

kakkoi Seb !! :hearts:

ubrunjensen
10-05-2003, 12:39 PM
No wonder they call him cute!
Okay, I eat my words about his new haircut - he's a right little charmer in the pic with Rainer!
And am I right or am I right when I keep singing his praise whenever he's wearing a red tshirt???
The little fella is just drop-dead-gorgeous!
I'm so sorry for calling him a freaking loser...

esther
10-05-2003, 02:45 PM

kakkoi means "cute"

esther
10-07-2003, 05:47 AM
i thought cute in japanese was kawaii? must be two words..

Marine
10-07-2003, 04:09 PM
LOL ... You know, Esther, the journalists of l'equipe probably did a mistake with "kakkoi" !
And I don't know only one word in japonses, so I believed them...lol

esther
10-08-2003, 05:19 AM
lol! nah theres probably two words i dunno...
