Centre Court

Matches start at 11.00 AM

Radek Stepanek (CZE) - Michael Lammer (SUI)

Not before 12.30 PM

Jarkko Nieminen (FIN) - Mario Ancic (CRO)

Damn, I wish it was mario 1st, I'd probably get up after the match and wouldn't have to check the score every second :p


Ajmo :angel:

linus
02-22-2006, 01:21 PM
:( lost with 5-7 6(5)-7

i didnt think he was determined enough. maybe he played not bad at all while Jarkko much better :eek: he couldnt get any chance when Jarkko served. how could I ask Jarkko for mistakes? back to the old words ''wait in the road'' :o

thinking of last year semi vs Roger, not the same Mario :hug:

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Ancic: On having lost to Nieminen for the third time in their third encounter: ďObviously you donít like somebodyís game if you lose to him three times in a row. I had a very good week last week in Marseille, but today I wasnít playing very well. Against Nieminen you have to be a 100 percent ready, otherwise you donít have any chance to beat him.Ē :o

If that ball in Johansson's eye is the reason for pulling out I officially would like to give Thomas a 1st prize or gold medal for being such a wimp! I got a ball in my eyes once while standing at the net and I finished practise as normal. Let alone to pull out for a match! If you don't feel like playing anymore think of a better excuse!

Everything I said...I take it back!!! I judged Thomas too soon! I was opening my mouth way too soon! It appears Thomas had surgery! He thought it was nothing serious but his retina (strange word but that's what my dictionary tells me..) was coming loose. Now he had surgery in Rotterdam and is not allowed to fly for about 3 weeks! So he's kinda stuck in Holland or he wants to drive home...and to make things even worse he's out for 3 to 4 months!
