I support 5 plyers in this tournament! And 4 of them are in the same quarter!
Who did this draw?!?!? :(
Mario and Baghdatis in 1st round (I don't know what he will do with it!), Igor and Ivan in the 2d (I guess), and then...
Oooo :awww:

I tried to watch him against Fed last year in Rotterdam, and that was quite bad, didn't see almost anything, so I'm not even gonna try.

But I could use this opportunity to ask my sis VERO if she knows whether some French channel on satellite will cover it :D I know it's a long shot, but I have to try :p

to tell the truth, if Mario won it in 2 sets, i would not be so pleased ;) after he lost the tiebreak in 2nd, though i knew Marcos not that good this time, still a bit worried about Mario, while finally got it right :yeah: happy to watch him play even just via net stream :angel:

well, i dont want him to lose to Faurel, though he made me happy by out silly Lopez :p

btw, Igor is not bad, dears, but not in his best shape now, good luck Ljubo, in my eyes, he a bit tired when playing with Chaphan.

From ATP site:

Croatian Mario Ancic scored his first career win over compatriot Ivan Ljubicic in the quarterfinals at the Open 13 in Marseille on Friday, avenging his loss to Ljubicic in the semifinals here last year. The pair, who teamed up to defeat Austria in the Davis Cup last weekend, fought for 2 hours, 16 minutes before Ancic triumphed, 7-6(2), 3-6, 6-3. Ancic fired 17 aces en route to victory and converted the only break point he had, at 2-1 in the third set.


Ancic: "It was strange to play against Ivan for sure, especially coming the week after we teamed together in the Davis Cup. It's always tough to play a friend but apart from that, I consider Ivan to be probably the best player, behind Federer, since the indoor season last year. It's a great win and great for my confidence. I wasn't expecting to do this well this week, especially after practicing on clay all of last week in Austria." :angel:

Petite veinarde :p N'oublies pas d'encourager Mario pour nous :angel: Et si, en plus, il y a qlq photos, alors là... génial :) mais ne t'inquiètes pas pour ça, le plus important, c'est que tu profites des matches! ;)



No, nth except Grosjean who's great on fast surfaces
Yeah, plus he's coming back in good form since the beginning of the season and he plays in his home town, so it won't be an easy match, for sure... The match against Ivan was obviously a tough one, but it would be a big mistake to consider Grosjean as an easy opponent!

OMG :worship:

today i was so nervous, even from 1st set which was easy :eek: i found him mubbering, licking, blowing hair... he must be not calm at all. Yea, he wanted to win, sometimes lost his ryhthm, while he kept it till the end. totally his serve was not bad in comparison with Gros. After won, he was a bit emotional :hug: maybe he wanna cry :aplot: and his coach was so excited that he ran into court at the time Mario finished the match to cele.. him :D

Arnaud today was too wonderful which of course doesnt mean that he could win Mario easily in final, but dear guy, take care, get your best back :angel:

What a match! And what a hope now! :bigclap:
I think, NOW he'll enter the top 20 at last?! :)

Mario talking again :) :

Ancic: "I didn't expect to do so well here this week. I knew I had Baghdatis in the first round and was just prepared to fight, in the second round too. Now I've found a bit more rhythm on this surface and it's getting easier and my standard is getting higher. The first two rounds were very tough."

On life after the Davis Cup: "I think I'm the same player, but maybe just a little more confident. The Davis Cup is a big part of our lives, with Ivan too, especially as a small country. It was always a dream to win it. Winning the most presitigious team event in tennis of course gives me more confidence for the future." :D :cool:

Poor Mario... It must be hard for him... :hug:
Hope, he will win smth enother, and as soon as possible!

BTW I've got an idea, that he needs Ivan for the big wins. At least on the enother side of the court :lol:

Mario, don't be sad! We love you and support you. There'll be another final and enother end! ;)

a sad story tonight :sad:

i did change myself before this final, in the past, i was the first to doubt him among my girls, i always said i didnt believe he can win, i felt he had still many problems to overcome, the time was not 'right now' but 'future'. maybe it would be too captious but i didnt get rid of it, it did run in my mind.

while today even when i saw them warming up, i was so calm and happy, ready to see a beautiful match though still ready to stand the loss in the end. i didnt need support from my girls, i could hold myself but this time, first God cheated me for Mario's affairs :sad:

his movements.. i didnt know how to say, made him lost much court for Arnaud, while he was wrongly net at most time... well, we could point out so so many bad sides....it was over, he didnt win this, lost in a very very depressing way :o

i was so repressive now, hard to survive from the hopeless feelings. he couldnt arrive your small expections, knew it was not his fault, but how could i make myself not to feel frustrated? God was in sick today i thought :smash:

when i watched him shouting, fiddling with his fingers... what a poor guy, God not only hurted him but also did it to me :bigcry: sometimes you can hope that one guy could break back when broken first and he did; sometimes hope that he could hold after broke the other first... i hoped him a break at least today, none for me. maybe it was my fault but what i could do then, mad to die :mad:

well, thinking of him, he must be harder than us, at least i have mum to console me, my girls to comfort me... if he needs, he just owned a telephone, so Mario, dear Mario, lets learn now to face it, failure is not always bad thing in our life, if more time is necessary, ok, here. :angel:

Oh Tosee :hug:

I know we sound pathetic and all, but I like it when you say how you feel, not just me :lol:

I just didn't know what to expect, to tell you the truth, I wouldn't be surprised with his win same as I'm not surprised with his loss. It's true that there's sth that happens to him in these last steps, but he's going up with it all, and as he managed to turn 0-2 two days in a row, I'm sure he'll be able to overcome this nervousness that just takes him over.

But still, to beat Ljubo and Grosjean (who is, in my opinion, an excellent player) in one week is very good, but only for now.:)
And Baghsatis too, even if I don't think that there's anything big in beating him, yes - he was an AO finalist, but he still has a long way to go to be 'a player to beat'.

yea, dear Gordana, thanks for understanding me.

''it is easy to see much said about his talent or so on, and why not admit he has really a long way to run?'' before i always thought as that :p

but when it did happen again and again, what a useless thing our feelings is :mad: it couldnt help us to keep calm or peaceful, we still felt frustrated :rolleyes:

as a tennis guy, you always beat some top players in your life while also you lost to some lower-rank player at some time, what you need is just the probability and the key points. all right, there are always many factors to win which is out of ball itself.

wish best luck to a guy whose name is Mario Ancic :angel:
