Apparently, Amelie is very questionable for her amtch tongiht becasue of a pulled back muscle. Maybe a little Ptrick rafter exhibition to fill the time slot??? (Wishful thinking)

Deboogle!.

I dunno, a torn muscle sounds pretty bad. for her sake, hopefully she's ok.

TennisLurker

I hope she will be ok

Ma. Estefania
01-26-2004, 09:31 PM
Yes, I hope so too....though it would be nice to see Fabiola getting her ticket to SF without effort.... J/K... :p

I hope they all show up, if not we'll have only 1 tennis match..... :(

that's too bad for her.... hopefully it's nothing too serious.

GO LINDSAY!!!!!!!!

Sjengster
01-26-2004, 11:31 PM
Wow - so very fortunately, and you can bet for the sole time in her career, Fabiola Zuluaga is in a GS semifinal. Puts even more pressure on Henin and Davenport knowing that the winner of that match virtually has a ticket into the final. It would be fine if Zuluaga was expected to give Mauresmo a decent workout, but the last time they played in Montreal a couple of years ago she won 2 games in about 45 minutes. Anyhow, I digress...

They're not. they're just doing that based on seeding. They've been doing it all tournament for all the guys like "so and so is seeded to meet x in the QF, y in the SF, and z in the F"

If Marat is playing well, even though he is well spent, he will beat Agassi. Agassi has had no good match up as such except for Scrichaphan. So, dont be surprised that any of these guys playing (Andy/Safin) could go on and beat Agassi. Straight sets dont mean anything in the second week. Do you have the game to beat your opponent? That's what matters.

That's because Roddick can't return as well as Safin.

Doesn't mean he won't stil win this match, though...

There is no guarantee that Roddick will win this match. So, dont be surprised.

Chloe le Bopper
01-27-2004, 10:03 AM
Regardless of what happens, this was a fantastic effort by Marat. Especially when you consider how many idiots wrote him off completely (Roddick may still win this, but i'm wondering what happened to that straight set ass kicking that so man promised?)

If Roddick loses then Federer has a chance of getting #1 if he gets past Nalbandian.

There is no guarentee that either will win it, unless they've been paid in advance and I'm outof the loop ;)

Roddick si still in this as far as I'm concerned. Until the very alst point.

If Roddick loses then Federer has a chance of getting #1 if he gets past Nalbandian.

If Roddick loses this match, he loses number one. Federer doesn't even have to beat Nalbandian to be ahead of him. But Ferrero could get it by getting to the final.

5th set. This does not sound good. Marat should try to take an injury time-out.

asotgod
01-27-2004, 10:29 AM
I wont go as far as to say Safin tanking the tiebreak. He started badly and Roddick served well, a combination it is. But the good part about the 5th set is there is no tiebreak, you've gotta win it. So, Safin needs a good start now and he will be fine.

One can't expect Marat to be at his best form, it's too early. Roddick is closer to his best form. Game still alive.

Safin will be around #60 if he loses. (he made R3 last year)
