And oh joy two of my favorite players are playing :) Fab plays Robby Ginepri of the U.S. Fab isn't having a good year and neither is Robby :sad: I don't know what to think about this Match :crazy: It is either going to be a tight Match or an easy win for someone :lol: I'll just say may the best player win :rolls:

Well Robby had to retire with a respiratory infection so Fab got an easy win. I don't know why I didn't think of a retirement in this Match because Robby has had a lot of those this year :sad: Oh well since Fab is older it is good he had an easy 1st Round :)

Nice start.
Fab doesn't play the doubles, so I hope he will make a good tournament.

Oh well I'm happy for Fab :) and sad for Kris :sad: But since Kris is much younger he should have many more years to play so I think it was nice for Fab to win :dance:

Yes I keep hearing that Mario is the favorite to win this Tournament, but all his Matches have seem to be very tough on him :eek: Of course, he did hurt his shoulder before this Tournament so perhaps that is bothering him :shrug:

Fab lost 6-4 6-0. It's not a surprise, yesterday he said he was very tired...

in l'equipe :
Fabrice Santoro n’affrontera pas un joueur au profil aussi atypique sur gazon. C’est en effet la haute stature de Mario Ancic qui se dressera aujourd’hui sur sa route. Hier, contre Vliegen, le Toulonnais passa par tous les états : hébété dans le premier set, durant lequel le Belge montra l’étendue de son réel talent, notamment dans les domaines du retour et du slice ; plus concerné par la suite, où il imposa progressivement sa patte et la qualité de son service.
Santoro sortit du match satisfait et fatigué : « Je crois avoir payé l’enchaînement de matches, dit-il. Aujourd’hui (hier), si l’on compte le simple (quarts de finale) et le double (victoire) à Halle, j’en étais quand même à mon neuvième match en dix jours ! Je n’ai pas eu trop le temps de recharger les accus. Même si je prends cette semaine comme une période de préparation pour Wimbledon, les matches, je n’ai pas envie de les perdre. » A fortiori quand les événements ne tournent pas forcément en sa faveur : « C’est une bonne victoire parce que j’étais mal embarqué, souligna-t-il. Parfois, il est plus gratifiant de s’en sortir en trouvant des solutions qu’en réussissant tout de A à Z. »

Santoro :sad: But Mario is the favorite in this Tournment and if he does go on and win the Tournament at least that way Fab will have gotten beat by the winner of the Tournament. I couldn't read the whole post you did, but just reading where you said in English that Santoro said he was tired makes me think that the years are catching up with him :sad:

Very scary result and it seems I made a stupid poll in GM! :o He can definitely do better!I hope Mario keeps doing good job so makes Fab losing the best winner looks better! ;)
