This is a Tournament that GGL is in the Main Draw for already. It is after Wimbledon. This Tournament runs from July 17 until July 23. I'm trying to put these threads up to help us keep track of where and when GGL is playing :rolleyes:

Yes this one he is already definitely in :) But I have been keeping my eyes on some other Tournament threads also. GGL is hard to keep up with :eek:

Its a shame he couldn't get his ranking up about 20 spots, because then he'd get direct acceptance into most tournaments

I agree. And I think GGL needs to make some changes to try to improve his tennis. He is now 23 and he should be at least starting to make his way up the rankings, but he isn't :sad:

stephB if it wouldn't be too much trouble for you I would really like you to do a Challenger Thread for GGL. You would just have to do one Thread and just enter the information about any Challengers that GGL is in using that one thread.

yes sure. no problem. only for challengers or for any entry list i found his name? i had a look for sopot (week 31) he is on the alternates-list on 2nd place. so he should be in again! and gstaad and bastad (week 28) alternates-list 15th and 16th. and in umaq (week 30) he´s already in! i can do a generell "upcoming tournaments"-thread or a challenger thread. which do you want me to do? ;)

If you don't mind, could you please do a Challenger Thread? I can usually, and I did say usually, keep up with the regular Tournaments, but that Challenger section of this Forum is just too much for me :rolleyes: So stephB if you could just do a Challenger thread it would be greatly appreciated :D And I do mean greatly appreciated :worship:

Well GGL has beaten Moya before (I was at that much, it was so nice) but what a crappy way to start the tournament having to play Carlos

hehe, at the Moya-GGL match I went to, I would yell out GO GGL, then after the next point, GO MOYA. But as the match went on I wanted GGL to win it even more.

Yes even just having the Tournament on TV or on live scoring it is very difficult if you really like both players :sad: I remember in a scoring thread here at the MTF that a poster was in that situation so what they did was cheer for whoever was behind in the Match :eek: I think I would have been cheering for whoever was winning myself :devil:

Well no "Dutch Treat" for GGL :sad: Moya defeated him. Sorry I forgot to write down the score :rolleyes:

Well at least GGL still has some chance for a little "Dutch Treat". He and his partner did win their Doubles Match today :)

However, GGL and his partner lost in the 2nd Round. Sorry I couldn't get in here and post this yesterday :sad: However, yesterday the MTF was acting up on me :devil: The MTF kept giving me that message about work being done, but Amanda said no work was being done on the MTF yesterday at all :confused:

:wavey: Today after the 3rd QF match I went to the practice courts in Amersfoort. Who was there? Fernando Vicente & GGL, shirtless :) And coach Navarro, who's really funny!! Makes a lot of noise :haha:

Fer and GGL were playing a few games, and it looked like GGL lost because he had to stand with his back to Fer so Fer could serve him a ball on the butt! :haha: Fer missed twice and then Navarro told GGL he was standing all wrong. He had to bend over more or he could get hit on the back. So he did....and Fer hit a cracker!!! :lol: It hurt just to listen to it :lol:

Then GGL looked/played pissed off, hit 5 balls sky high and away from the park :lol: kicked over a drink cooler and "collapsed" in his chair which he had put in the shade in the corner of the court. He just sat there for 20 minutes or so and then he left leaving Navarro and Vicente to play on their own.

It was really funny to see GGL being all grumpy and Fer going :haha: I took some pics. Will post soon. :)
