We can forget the gold; the tennis trophy is good enough.

This is true.

No, there is no internet connection, sorry. But I'll let you know what happened ;) I think it starts at 9 or 9:30 here ;)
I hope he gets the gold, I like Ginobili a lot, but he's won way too many awards these past few years, it's time for David to have a little of spotlight ;)

jazz_girl
12-20-2005, 10:38 AM
Yes, he won the silver award, by beating Gastón and Guillermo, and only the ones who have won the Silver Olimpia are contenders for the gold one.
David won by 14 votes out of 19 :yeah:

David's quotes:
"Es un momento muy emotivo para mí. Después de estar tanto tiempo fuera del país, con las exigencias que provoca el circuito de la ATP, puedo gozar del reconocimiento de la gente de mi país y en especial de los periodistas que me entregaron el Olimpia de Oro"

"It's a very emotive moment for me. After being so long out of the country, in the circuit, with the hard work that the ATP aks, I can enjoy from people's recognition in my country and specially from the journalists who gave me the Gold Olimpia"

"Este reconocimiento me da fuerzas para comenzar una nueva temporada. Las vacaciones ya terminaron para mí y ahora se viene el trabajo con miras al Abierto de Australia. Mi objetivo está puesto en la Copa Davis y en un Grand Slam, además de tratar de meterme entre los tres mejores del ranking. Ojalá pueda mantener el nivel que alcancé en la última parte del año"
"This recognition gives me strength to start a new season. The vacations are over for me and now I start working to face thee Australian Open. My goal is the DC and winning a Grand Slam, besides trying to be among the best 3 in the ranking. I wish I could maintain the level I reached in the last part of the year"

It must have been very emotional for David -- it was so sweet to see him hugging his Mom when he won Shanghai! :angel:
