Don't say that!!!

Whenever we even MENTION the worst case scenario, he gets it.

Example:

"Oh wouldn't it be awful to get Switzerland in Davis Cup."

"Oh it would suck to draw Roger in the first round."

Nole wouldn`t play against Nadal (and Nalbandian, Ljubicic, Gaudio, Johansson, Gasquet and Chela who are out) in the first round for sure because this is tournament with 56 players and first 8 players won`t play first round. I hope Nole will have good draw (Federer plays excellent in MC, he had problems only with Nole) and that he can make something big there...

AJDE!!!

There are PLENTY of Starbucks in central London :p On the rare occasion when I would walk to school instead of tube-ing it. I think I passed at least 4. ;)

Someone new from MTF contacted me yesterday on MSN and his first words to me are, "So how's life in Serbia?" and I'm just like "No clue, but I can tell you how life in New York is!" :lol: Or someone else from MTF once IM-ed me before the DC tie against Israel and asked if I was going to the tie, and I was like no, and they were like "Is it a long flight from England?" and I'm like "Probably, but a lot longer from New York." :lol:

It's not like I'm the only person on MTF to not use their correct flag! :lol: I think it would freak people out if I put the US flag up.

Becca and I were sitting watching him practice last summer in Montreal. We were actually waiting for Novak, but he never showed up. Anyway, these two weird girls come up and are like "YO JUSTIN! We're from NEW YORK!" and he's like "Erm, ok. Hi." No one else is around except me, Becca, Justin and these girls. Anyway they're like draped with Spanish flags and whatnot and are like "DO YOU KNOW WHERE VINCE IS?" and he's like "Vince? Vince SPADEA?" :lol: and they're like "Yeah, where is he?!" and Justin looks at me and Becca because we are like fighting to hold back giggles at how odd this interaction is and he gives us this like that is like, "WTF?" and he's like "I have no clue where Vince is." :lol: Anyway, he stopped practicing and went to talk to them later, and was pretty nice to them and stuff... but it was an odd moment.

I also saw him when I was eating dinner at Montreal, he was in the same bar/restaurant :p

But this is an old story. I look forward to more odd moments involving Justin and Vince Spadea in the future. Ideally not with weird girls from New York though :p

Gimeno-Traver is a 20-year-old right hander from Valencia, Spain currently ranked 181 in the world. Their match is the fourth match on Court 3. Play begins on that court at 10:45 a.m. local time.

I think taking a week out for Rafa would only be sensible. He got the title, the prep he needs for Rome, he doesn't need to play this week. Plus it might compromise his fitness for later on. It makes sense. And that would open Novaks part of the draw nicely :angel:

Rafa needs a nice siesta on the shores of Mallorca. He has earned it, no?

Maybe, maybe not :p Novak does not have huge issues with big servers, is also what I'm saying :p Actually he seems to have more difficulty with people who don't serve big.. like Coria, Rochus, etc :p So a high seed who is erm... questionable on clay would lead to a nice open draw after the upset ;)

( :secret: matches on clay in Spain between Spaniards are always slow :o )

savesthedizzle
04-24-2006, 04:11 PM
Like I realize clay is slow, and that's why I like clay... but my GOODNESS. Each POINT is taking 5 minutes. :lol: I keep wondering if my scoreboard is frozen, or if it's raining or something. :lol: I got up THREE HOURS AGO worried that matches might have gone quickly and Novak would be playing. At this rate I will probably miss his match when I have to leave for class. :rolls:

Why is Novak sucking today? He's playing like such a mediocre player. The guy on court today would lose to Federer 6-0 6-0. :fiery:

That was the just not showing up to the tournament one, which I found but responded about in the wrong thread.. but I could have SWORN there was a "clubbing until 5 am" story but it seems to have been a seperate time from that one and I can't find it.

I made fun of Nole for acting like Ljubicic's little brother, but maybe he needs an older brother out there on tour.
