Good man for liking 24, he goes up marginally in my estimation :)

It's conjecture on my part, but I suspect, being the dork he is, he might've been the only one who volunteered. :tape: I remember after Hamburg last year he was hoping to do the blog at Roland Garros. :lol:

EDIT: Oh, and I hate 24. :p :lol:

He is a dork? :eek: He doesn't look like one.

Offtopic- I actually wrote down the recipe in your siggie. Now who's a dork?:p

I've had a read and it's definately one of the better ones - anyone remember Nalbies excuse of a blog. The best thing about it was the funny abusive comments he got on MTF.

I like Robredo's it's kind of chatty - definately more interesting than watching him play.

Man you guys are hard on him. So what if he doesnt have a 'pretty game', hes effective and clearly he is a bit uncomfortable in teh English language. I dont find his blogs that bad either actually.

My sentiments exactly. The guy obviously wants to write this blog and give us a peak into his life on the road. I think he's a good guy for wanting to do that and come on, Robredo is adorable. I don't mind reading the dorky English or seeing the pics that go with the blog.:drool:

Tommy's blog is great. He's such a cutie, the way he looks, the way he writes, his personality, everything about him is just cute. I don't like 24 at all, but I think I could get used to it if I could get invited into Tommy's hotel room with Verdasco and Ferrer.

04-17-2007, 12:59 AM
Tommy's second post is up. And!!! Oh!!! My!!! God!!! It's full of exclamation points!!!!! He beats Dmitry for the most exclamation points in a single post. :haha:

But I like his blog. I find him pretty funny.

then i had practise at 11 with fernando gonzalez for an hour, a bit of stretching and i went to have lunch at the player restaurant where i met nanette, one of the ladies who works for the atp staff and is going toa be taking care of promoting some players in spain and italy, it means she is going to be the one who will help me to be a star!!!!! oh my god!!!!!! from monaco to hollywood! while i was in the lunch the great stephan vivier (trainer of the atp) arranged my computer. he is great with computers as well!!! what a man!

i just want to say thanks specially to a girl, a chinese girl who gave me a present yesterday in the tennis.... i told her thanks in person, but anyway i wanted to do it again. the chinese fans are so great doing presents and supporting tennis as i could see in shanghai. thanks to all of you as well to all the other fans of tennis! without them tennis will not be a great sport!


Tommy knows what he's doing. Now he's going to be flooded with gifts. :lol:

yesterday morning i had a phone call from ana cronwall from bastad, a lady who all the players who goes year by year to play in bastad as i do.... love her so much and noone will say a bad word about her! she is the best player service lady i ever known and she just told me she was in monaco with anika, another lady from bastad staff and i arrange a dinner with them!

Am I the only one who found the sentence mildly disturbing? :tape:

Jimnik
04-17-2007, 12:41 PM
Robredo is alright. I remember his blog in Hamburg last year started out quite good but then seemed to get a little short and boring towards the end. His last post, after he beat Stepanek, was rather disappointing if you ask me. He'd just won his first AMS title so I was expecting something more interesting than that brief paragraph he wrote. I think he was more interested in celebrating than blogging, at that point.

But, for sure, I think he's one of the better bloggers.

Henry Chinaski
04-17-2007, 12:47 PM
I like the style of this blog much more than some previous ones that have been dictated to someone else and then translated. Seems a lot more authentic this way.

He quoted The Transporter. Unbelievable.

I am finding this blog extremely endearing. Glad he wrote it by himself. And who would not want to be a fly on the wall at the players party and "exhibition";)

danton
04-17-2007, 10:18 PM
first of all stephan helped me to copy 2500 songs from his computer to mine... now i will not have excuses to not have a lot of music on my computer!

oh dear Tommy - that's illegal

last year for example jonas and max mirnyi made a great show looking like feliciano lopez and verdasco...

Would like to have seen that

Saumon
04-17-2007, 10:20 PM
Yes - it's changed

I change it once in a while. ;) I think I've never used the flag of my country tho. :o

Clara Bow
04-17-2007, 10:59 PM
Boy- he really is rather endearing. This blog has much more character now that he is writing it himself.


could tell you but i prefer to see all of you tomorrow in the central court, but even if he is french and all the people here support the french players, please remember to support me as well, spain is very close from here! and also remember im one of some of the players who is trying to support montecarlo in being a master series after 2009. as well if you support me i would give you presents after the match! hahahhaha is this a way to buy fans?? Hahaha

It sounds like Tommy would like to have more crowd support :hug:- I will have to be more vocal if I am supporting him at a match I am attending of his in the future.

anyway i have to tell you guys to dont show up in the lobby of the hotel often, because there are a few players (i will not say names to protect their reputation) that plays with playstation at pro evoution every single day close to my room.... i can assure that they scream like crazy and they are playing with a big bet: the loser team has to go in the reception only with underwear and make a few turns over a fountain while the winner team just scream to ensure that more people will see that!!!!! :lol:

This was good. Am I the only one who thinks that lobby is going to be packed? Tennis players, undies, water fountain? Lawd!!!

I like how he also added the charity work the players are doing this week. Overall he's doing well at promoting tennis and is pretty damn funny too.

anywho...


Tommy's got a very nice blog. :D I can't say I'm surprised at all though... I knew if Tommy was going to write another blog, he wasn't going to be robotic about it. Tommy is a relatively quite guy, so writing a blog provides an outlet for him to express himself and have the public get to know him better in addition to informing them of his daily activities at the tennis tournament. I've always found him to be likable... nothing's changed! ;)

The match in the playstation was Nadal-Ferrer against Moya-Nalbandian. And the ones who had to go to the lobby of the hotel in underwear were Moya and Nalbandian. But in Australia, Nadal had to do the same.

I found that out from a video in youtube of a Spanish programme called CQC (It's actually the Spanish version of the original CQC which is Argentinean). It's really funny. There's the link in Barcelona's final thread or you can search it in youtube.
