From the ATP's front page right now:

Escude a Threat to Federer
Dangerous Frenchman Nicolas Escude has the chance to give France a huge boost in its tough Davis Cup quarterfinal against Switzerland when he meets INDESIT ATP 2004 Race leader Roger Federer in the Tie’s opening rubber. Federer virtually single-handedly led the Swiss to victory in last year’s quarterfinal against the French when he won all three rubbers he contested. Escude, the hero of France’s upset 2002 Davis Cup final win against Australia, leads Federer 4-3 in career meetings.

===============

Actually, ATP, it's 3-3 in career meetings, at least according to the ITF database. And why do you fail to mention the result of the most recent and most significant meeting, which was in the 2003 Davis Cup QF? Talk about tailoring the facts to fit
your story!

Ok, rant over. They just blow my mind. I could write better copy than that.

mitalidas, are you talking about Rogi, perchance?!! if so, I agree completely!! Rogi does look so good in red... hope he's HOT enough to win all his matches [but it w be nice if Ivo could win his and take the pressure off... ]

HOPP SCHWEIZ!!!

mitalidas
04-09-2004, 05:10 AM
oh yeah.... haha..... yeah, was talking about how hot rogi looks in those pics, not boring me..
I think 2 singles wins for Rogi, and they sneak out a doubles win.... it is totally doable! Go Rogi!! we're all behind you!!

I'd like to read the articles about Rogi as more as possible.

Roger, go over France!

Good luck Rogi for the first match-- do it in straight sets and save ur energy for the Saturday's double and the reverse single match. All the best also to Ivo and Yves and the rest of the Swiss DC team!

Fine! Just a bit nervous ahead of the Rogi's first singles match. Poor us Rogi's non Swiss fans, what can we do??? Just sit in front of TV all night long and check the live score over Eurosportsnews..

Ya I'm nervous too, especially for Rogi but he actually said it's extra PLEASURE to play at home so I hope so for him. Hard to imagine how much pressure he's carrying each time going to DC matches :sad:

I'm just gonna go out for dinners, catch a movie or so. I had enough of staring at scoreboards...it's too nervewrecking ;)

p/s : it's raining so heavily here in KL now on a Friday night...gosh, can imagine the traffic

ya tough double match ahead. Very important for both teams. If only the Swiss team has a stronger 2nd single.

I hope Mrs. B and Doris both managed to pass the red envelope to Rogi :)

*patiently waiting for them to log in with some match details*

Hi lsy, you don't forget to send the messages you wanted to send to Roger, do you ;)

lsy
04-09-2004, 06:23 PM
hehe...you mean that 3 messages of mine???

I was busy for the past few days and only managed to scrap some messages at the last minutes last night for Mrs. B. Not sure she actually got it or not...*fingers cross*

yanchr
04-09-2004, 06:29 PM
You know what I mean ;) I've also sent some but I have doubt Mrs.B would have access to approach Roger...you know from the report the atmosphere is sth like crazy...how I would love to be one of the whole red....

lsy
04-09-2004, 06:32 PM
Don't underestimate the abilities of Mrs. B :)

I'll be more than happy if I even get to watch those matches on TV.

But you're right, nothing beat being part of the crazy atmosphere...so jealous of Mrs. B & Doris :)

yanchr
04-09-2004, 06:50 PM
ummm...Next week maybe I will get those matches. Though late but never too late to watch Roger esp his double performance :D

Thank you, Isy, for having faith in me!

Yes, i gave my red envelope to someone very close to Roger, i think i took her by surprise and i appeared out of the blue but hopefully she'll hand it over to him. ;) I saw this couple on the grounds and were meeting some friends and bringing them tickets, so i took my chance. Yes, it's difficult to have access to the guys, that's for sure, the players' entrance is "verboten".

Yes, the atmosphere was SUPER!!!! The French supporters were obviously outnumbered by the Reds but they were great too, and at the start of Roger & Nico's match, on the Swiss side a big Swiss flag rolls up, like in football, and the French followed. My cheese hat with the cow brought smiles of approval! :) One French guy brought along a cock ( Le Coq) with him, and was walking on the rails when Arnaud Clement was winning his match against Ivo. Great play from Roger, he's always a joy to watch live. too bad Ivo couldn't play in that level, but everyone knows that the Swiss needs a no. 2 player. But Clement was much better than him (check scores & stats) and very quick!

Saw Doris & ste after the games. She hasn't delivered her red envelope. maybe she'll get lucky tomorrow or Sunday. hmmm...the doubles should be interesting.

I took some pics and will post them at the other thread eventually...

lsy
04-09-2004, 06:57 PM
Really???

wow...Now I'm really jealous. Davis cup matches are great to watch (unfortunately though of all, I actually get to watch the Swiss/Aussie one last year :( ).

lsy
04-09-2004, 07:02 PM
oh my god...Mrs. B!!! You're back already!!!

I thought we might all have to wait for much longer than this, maybe you're just too nice knowing we're here waiting for you patiently lol Well, I know you'll have your way and sources :)

Thanks for the report!!! Great to hear that Rogi played well, with all the pressures on him. I read he had a standing ovation from all when he entered the stadium :)

and now I'm waiting patiently for you to post those pictures :)

yanchr
04-09-2004, 07:04 PM
Mrs.B is back :bounce: Sorry I didn't mean to not believe in you, just want to stress that crazy atmosphere and my jealous ;)
Thanks for that :D

04-09-2004, 07:44 PM
the last 3 envelopes that was given here in Switzerland to our dear Roger was done by Mrs. B.

and Mrs. B accomplished another one today! ;)

Hurray!!! Both Rogi and Mrs. B delivered yet again today :D

Mrs. B is certainly establishing herself to be as reliable as the FedEX.

Mrs. B
04-09-2004, 07:44 PM
check some pics i took today in Lausanne at the Swiss Tennis thread. ;)

lsy, i deleted that last post cuz i didn't want to sound like i was bragging. but thanks to those who sent me messages for the Fed. ;)

Mrs. B. I tried to look for you fr the SUI news today... what an atmosphere!! Rogi looked so pumped and animated, like the crowd!!

Sorry Ivo couldn't win his match but I hope Rogi/Yves win their dbles tomorrow -- they HAVE TO!!!

Well, it's up to Rogi once again, guys!!

HOPP SCHWEIZ!!

Halliii Halloooo
Yes guys I'm still alive too!! ;) ;)

And me too have good news about a certain coloured envelope ;). As Mrs. B already said it's pretty dam hard to get close to the players (even though today we walked by Stanislas Wawrinka - too bad I was haning on the phone (with Mrs. B ;) ) and noticed it too late...) And my seats are anything else than close to the players bench either (still good view though) so me too took the chance to hand it out to someone else I'm sure they will hand it to him ;).

Well today I really almost lost my voice from cheering our guys on. And having sore arms from clapping with these cool plastic sticks. Just too bad it didn't really help our guys. They had a great start and through the whole match there were some amazing points. As I'm not really a doubles specialiste I dare to point out a weakest link. Maybe with a little bit of luck they might have turned it around. Too bad they lost that third set tb - but it wasn't meant to be.

Tomorow - better today is an other day and we still are hopefull!!

Hoooopppp Schwiiiiizzzzz
