I hope you get to see Fab on your TV coverage too Choupi! ;)

Please keep us updated if you do get to see him.... although I don't know why I'm asking that, because you already are so good about doing that for us, and it is much appreciated! :D

Yes especially with our lack of TV coverage :sad: DirecTV I think has every sport in the world covered except for tennis :fiery: They are even showing the World Cup of Cricket :eek: The only place I knew that played Cricket was England, but I guess since it is a "World Cup" other countries must play that game also. But we definitely don't play Cricket in the U.S.

Not an easy 1st match for Fab. And certainly less easy for the 2nd round, whoever gets through. Anyway, good luck to him. The coverage I should get isn't complete, and it's gonna be only 2 hours a day. But at least, it is daily. Last year, we only had the semis and the final. :)

Former Finalists Santoro & Safin Advance in Halle

French wizard Fabrice Santoro defeated Mikhail Youzhny 7-6(4), 6-2 and 2005 finalist Marat Safin out muscled Florent Serra 7-6(4), 6-3 to reach the second round of the Gerry Weber Open in Halle Tuesday.

Santoro reached the Halle final on debut in 2001 (l. T. Johansson) but in three subsequent appearances has failed to reach the quarterfinals. Santoro came into the tournament having lost in the first round in five of his past seven tournaments. He began the season strongly by reaching his first career Grand Slam quarterfinal at the Australian Open and the Marseille quarterfinals.

Yes, good job. Tomorrow, he'll play Clément. Time for some revenge for Marseille. I bet it's gonna be very tight, once again.

Santoro Won :woohoo: I'm sorry I didn't write down the score, but I thought someone else would have already posted it! Fab is really off to a good start in this Tournament and I would like to see him do more winning. I think grass is a better surface for him :)

Work instead of getting to watch Fabrice :( I think it might be a long shot for Fab to reach the semis, but I certainly would be happy for him to prove me wrong :D

Poor Fab :sad: I try to hope things will get better for him, but I'm afraid the truth is for a singles tennis player he is getting up there in age :bigcry:

Well Fab is still in Halle. He and Zimonjic won the Doubles Semi-finals today :) Sorry I didn't write down any of the information, because I thought it would have already been posted.

Fab & Nenad have won the final 6/0 6/4. :banana: I guess this just contributes to bringing them closer to their main goal, that is Wimby in doubles. :)
