toughest draw possible but I feel Nole can take it, Soderling is tough on clay . I don't want to look up to possible Nadal QF but if he will defeat him on clay anywhere it could be here

It's a decent draw until the quarterfinals. I think it's really shitty that Nole is always in either Federer or Rafa's sections... but that will be over as soon as he becomes top 4. So extra incentive for him.

Scotso
05-05-2007, 04:16 PM
The really bad thing about this is that I know that Nole can beat Rafa, but I'm not sure if he thinks he can beat Federer yet. I would hate for Nole to beat Rafa and then lose to Federer in the finals. I don't want Federer winning any titles until after the clay season. :p

But ajde Nole! :worship: I'll cheer for him as long as he's in the draw.

no kidding! Why is he always, ALWAYS in Rafa or Fed's draw? I don't remember him ever being in Davydenko's, Roddick's, or Ljubicic's quarter. I feel like Nole should definitely defeat those 3, not too sure about Fed or Rafa.

Scotso
05-05-2007, 04:22 PM
I think clay is his best chance to get that first win over Federer. Rafa is tough on clay, but I don't think he's unbeatable. Nole can blow him away just like he did in Miami.

ezekiel
05-05-2007, 08:37 PM
such a long list of top 20 players he hasn't played: Roddick, Blake, Davydenko,Nalbandian, Baghdatis, Berdych and only once Ljubicic, Haas . I mean it's a disadvantage as he can beat them and they could be better prep than a some non seed to be followed by Fed/Nadal as is the case often

Exactly!

Why couldn't he have been in Roddick's quarter which is like chock full of Americans?!

I'm not worried about Soderling at all, only Rafa. It would make me a very happy girl though if Novak is the one who breaks the streak :D

judging only by his name, I think he is bosnian (not only born there, but also his parent's ethnicity). Amer is a common name among bosnian muslims.

But of course I could be wrong.

Scotso

You think? Soderling is okay. Not as good as Robredo (on clay). I think Novak could get away with B or B+ performance.

I can't decide if I want it to be an early match or a late match.

So Nole plays at 7am EST and I will be at work then :sad:

I'm going to tape it and hope that they show his match and can watch it "live" when I get home. Although he's on opposite Roddick, so who knows. TTC doesn't seem as American-centric as ESPN, though. So hopefully we'll see some of Nole (hopefully) crushing Soderling. Wait... I thought Roddick was withdrawing?

I hate not being here when he plays, it makes me really nervous. He better win. He has a lot of points to defend with his 6th event coming off.

I do too care. I followed the election very closely. I like France and I prefer a leader that would help France and America be more friendly. When I went to France everyone was very kind to we Americans.

I don't do anything simply to be irritating. I'm irritating enough, naturally.

God,he got so much on my nerves!!!!i think he played awfully today-thank God Soderling played even worse!!!i must say that the crowd helped Nole really a lot!the most horrible thing was that at some moments he reminded me of Marat which is...let`s me just say...TERRIFYING:eek: :unsure: :cuckoo: :help: !!!but i`m also sure that Nole is gonna play much,much better in his next match-he always plays better when it`s time for the "big" matches!and something else-he`ll be extra motivated coz Baggy is another presenter of the "young generation" and Nole really enjoys beating the rest of them and proving that he`s the best young player of all!so i stay possitive!

AJDE NOLEEEEEEEEEEE!VOLIM TE!!!:aparty: :banana: :inlove: :smooch: :bigclap: :bounce: :kiss: :worship:


I hope you're right :hug:

I think he's tired though :(

Yesterday, during Marat's match, in the second set, we started having a heated msn debate concerning Sarkozy's trip to Malta and stopped paying attention to the score. It worked well! :yeah: :lol:

i adore Marat!he`s the reason for i started watching tennis 5 years ago and i got so addicted!Marat is maybe the 2nd most talanted player in the world after Roger and deffinately the most charismatic one,the most loved and hated one BUT THERE IS NO OTHER PERSON WHO CAN DRIVE HIS FANS SO CRAZY,WHO CAN BREAK THERE NERVES AND WHO CAN MAKE THEIR DAY GO TO HELL!!!Marat is the worst player to be a fan of!i know so perfectlly well why i`m saying it!
while Novak,he`s amazingly talented and charming,too but he`s not this nerves-breaker at all!he just didn`t play well today-that`s all!he didn`t try to kill us as Marat has been doing for the last 5 years!!!:sad:

I watched the match when I got home without knowing the end result, and it was driving me crazy. He really loves to put us through these really, really close matches. He's trying to kill off his own fans. :p

I'm glad Nole pulled through... not his best play, but he really, really fought for it. He's such a great competitor. Right up there with Nadal.
