omg Robby if you can't win your match tomorrow then I think there's NO HOPE!

Go Lleyton and especially Mark, win your third straight match (even though it doesn't really matter for anything:o)

And Neely, your OPs are so purdy!!

I'm really only left with Argentina as a favorite now :sad:

GO ARGENTINA!! :bounce: :bounce:

Go United States!! To, at least, win one match. :rolleyes:

Not counting the twins winning doubles because I can't stand them...not even for a team event.

come on Gaston

Neely
05-21-2004, 12:04 PM
Gaudio is playing some excellent claycourt tennis
I see no chance for Hewitt to come back this time
if Gaudio lets him off the hook again this time, Gastón is really far beyond help
he owns Lleyton at the moment

Socket

Thanks for the update, Neely (although you didn't quite say what I wanted to hear!).

Bilbo
05-21-2004, 12:16 PM
Canas will have no chance

Raquel
05-21-2004, 12:22 PM
Come on Lleyton! Keep fighting!! :bounce:

Raquel
05-21-2004, 12:24 PM
Yes Lleyton breaks back!!

3-6 *3-5

This is Gaudio remember Lleyton!! Remember Monte Carlo :yeah:

Neely
05-21-2004, 12:26 PM
Hewitt holds to love *g*

lol, now Gaudio could really be ready to choke, but I doubt it ;)

he must win this or he is mentally broken for the next tournament as well
twice joking against Hewitt blowing two breaks and a one set lead

Bilbo
05-21-2004, 12:27 PM
Gaudio chokes

Raquel
05-21-2004, 12:27 PM
:worship: 4 great points from Lleyton!

Gaston serving at 6-3, *5-4

Lleyton break him again :banana:

Neely
05-21-2004, 12:29 PM
Gaudio has already shaking hands and he was give a foot fault on a 2nd serve!

Bilbo
05-21-2004, 12:30 PM
5-5 lol

Raquel
05-21-2004, 12:30 PM
Loved that lob from Lleyton :)

Lleyton breaks :bounce:

5-5 :) :D

Gaston :o

Neely
05-21-2004, 12:30 PM
UNBELIEVABLE!!! GAUDIO CHOKED AGAIN!!!!!!!

Lleyton is back!!! 5-5

Action Jackson
05-21-2004, 12:32 PM
Gaudio choking, why am I not surprised.

Socket
05-21-2004, 12:33 PM
Oh, this is hysterical . . .

Neely
05-21-2004, 12:36 PM
if Gaudio loses serve again after the changeup that could be another HELL of a collapse of Gaudio :eek:

Fin090
05-21-2004, 12:36 PM
Whenever Neely says things like "there's no way back into the match for _____", the player always gets back into the match and usually wins.

merle
05-21-2004, 12:39 PM
Oh, well, that's just not funny any more with Gaudio choking, that's scary! :mad:

Raquel
05-21-2004, 12:39 PM
Lleyton wins the set 7-5!! :bounce: :banana: :eek:

Great fighting Lleyton :) Good Luck in the 3rd :yeah:

Gaston :o

Neely
05-21-2004, 12:40 PM
compared to Monte Carlo, the only difference, Gaudio can build on today is that he is not alone on the court and his team captain can support him during change overs
but that was it, otherwise it's exactly the same game process

WyveN
05-21-2004, 12:43 PM
I am just speechless, although when you got the game's biggest choker playing against the games best fighter things like this are not a surprise

WyveN
05-21-2004, 12:43 PM
Was Gaudio up a set and 2 breaks?

FryslanBoppe
05-21-2004, 12:44 PM
It would almost be enough to lose your sense of humour.

Neely
05-21-2004, 12:46 PM
Was Gaudio up a set and 2 breaks?
yes, he lost serve three consecutive times then to lose the 2nd set 5-7

Action Jackson
05-21-2004, 12:47 PM
Of course Gaudio breaks and will probably lead 5-0 and end up losing.

Neely
05-21-2004, 12:48 PM
damn it, Lleyton... not so many easy errors now :mad:

2-0* Gaudio who confirmed his break

Neely
05-21-2004, 12:49 PM
Of course Gaudio breaks and will probably lead 5-0 and end up losing.
LOL don't denounce it, it could really happen! :lol:

Action Jackson
05-21-2004, 12:49 PM
Yes, Hewitt make errors, so Gaston doesn't have to serve it out.

Action Jackson
05-21-2004, 12:50 PM
LOL don't denounce it, it could really happen! :lol:

If you watched as many Gaudio matches as I have, nothing surprises you anymore.

Neely
05-21-2004, 12:50 PM
*2-1 Gaudio

lol, I doubt if that one break will be enough for Gaudio *g*

Raquel
05-21-2004, 12:51 PM
Good hold Lleyton :)

If Lleyton can win this, he has won 3 really tight matches on clay here against some good players and will be good for his confidence going into RG where he has a pretty reasonable draw.

Go Lleyton!

Action Jackson
05-21-2004, 12:51 PM
3 breaks won't be enough.

Action Jackson
05-21-2004, 12:52 PM
Good hold Lleyton :)

If he makes the quarters at RG, that is enough of a celebration for him.

05-21-2004, 12:55 PM
LH breaks again .............2-2

FryslanBoppe

What a surprise Hewitt breaks serve.

Raquel
05-21-2004, 01:03 PM

Definitely :)

Lleyton holds for 3-2 :yeah:

:wavey:
George Mate-> surely you've seen what a sweet-deal draw Rocky Llegs has at RG this year; he's scheduled to meet Ferrero in QF, but as we've just heard JC may pull out & even so faces a tricky 1stRD vs Haas. Looks to me like Hewitt has a very realistic chance of making atleast SF at FO. Then we all know the guy plays well under pressure so he may just take the cake & eat it too, then will you hand me a cigar? :p

Neely
05-21-2004, 01:13 PM
that was unbelievable how Gaudio saved these break points
really very brave and courageous play by Gaudio, especially those longline BHs

great match now!

Neely
05-21-2004, 01:16 PM
UNBELIEVABLE EXCHANGE, the best of the whole match
points goes to Gaudio, AWESOME

:wavey: I love the name 'Rocky Llegs' :D Yeah Lleyton has a pretty good RG draw. I am not thinking of the SF's though, just one match at a time with Lleyton on clay this year :)

:eek: AMAZING rally at 30-30. Gaudio won it :mad:
Gaston breaks :fiery:

Come on Lleyton, fight back again, this is still on! :bounce:

It is extremely of topic here but if you want to discuss Hewitt's draw I will be happy to do it in GM.

Neely
05-21-2004, 01:17 PM
that point was awesome, you cannot say Gaudio falters as he did in Monte Carlo
in Monte Carlo Gaudio totally collapsed and was helpless, today he has the nerves for saving break points on own serve with brave play and breaks Hewitt right in the next game

*4-3 Gaudio

what will happen, will Gaudio be broken again?

Hey my man the Lleyton Hewitt propaganda minister I loved your comment about Haas that was the best thing you have ever posted.

Come on Gaudio be strong on serve for once.

:wavey: :cool:
WyveN mate; lets discuss Hewitt's draw & the other players chances after Week-1 is played ->> of course many upsets are possible in the first 3-rounds, it will start to get interesting around Rd4/QF time. But don't be surprised when Rocky Llegs does some damage in the dirt :worship: .

Raquel
05-21-2004, 01:22 PM
Lleyton breaks back :banana:

4-4 :) :D

George cobber bluey dinky dye ridgy didge fair dinkum mate; you're being so supportive lately, makes me feel strange when people agree with my whacky opinions ;) . BTW~ Cmon Hewitt you can do it, again vs choking Gaudio!

Action Jackson
05-21-2004, 01:26 PM
This is typical I bet Gaudio doesn't win another point and Zabaleta has to carry Gaudio's carcass and win the next match.

Raquel

Break him Llegs :p

Bilbo

Gaudio will lose his serve now

Action Jackson

5-5 on Hewitt's serve, he can't lose his serve now, nerve maybe, but not serve.

Action Jackson
05-21-2004, 01:36 PM
Breakboll come on Gaudio, attack that flat Hewitt serve and give it what it deserves.

Credit to Gaudio, he took it on the match point. Bet he's never been so happy to see a ball bounce as low as that.

Both of us could do some damage to the guy.

People are used to seeing Canas win those matches and not Gaudio.

thanks for the correction, dont know what I was thinking

Action Jackson
05-21-2004, 01:58 PM
this could do him a lot of good, has he ever choked like this yet still won the match?

I have seen him come back and win matches from behind twice, but from what I have seen, he seems to feeling good in his game, it's just mental Mount Everest that is holding him back.

Rain will be good for Mariano.

tennis_spider
05-21-2004, 02:04 PM
Rain will be good for Mariano

WHY ?

Raquel
05-21-2004, 02:51 PM
WHY ?

The rain will make the court heavier and the ball goes through the air quicker in hot sunny weather. So the ball will be slower through the air which will blunt Mark's power a bit. I *think* that's what George was saying.

tennis_spider
05-21-2004, 02:53 PM

That's a great win for him on clay :worship: and a great week for him considering he hadn't won a match since the Australian :)

On to the doubles! Will Lleyton play? Whoever wins this doubles goes into tomorrow's final, so maybe Lleyton and Wayne will team up instead of Hanley/Arthurs?

Hanley/Arthurs or Chela/Arnold
