Good luck!!!
though draw.. but if se is healthy he can make it to the quaters (I'd like to see Haas-Gonzalez match like in Indian Wells.. and with the same score, for Tommy's favor again!)

No points at all :eek: Well I guess Tommy is going to have to win his 2nd Rd Match :p I'm glad it's Monaco instead of the Russian :) But then Tommy and Monaco played recently so sometimes that isn't a good thing :confused: Anyway Auf geht's Tommy :D

He can say bye bye to Shanghai.

Here we go again. It's the end of the season, he has realistic chances to make it to the TMC, and this is what happens. Well, let's see how the others (Blake, Robredo, etc.) do in their first matches. Haas might consider trying to get a WC for Lyon.

That was a quick out :ras: Tommy :help: Blame me I made the mistake of v-betting on Tommy--never a good idea :banghead:

I wonder if he's going to ask for a WC now. But anyway, his chances are pretty low. I guess 3 or 4 players will pass him in the race after Madrid.

Tommy :sad: :sad: :hug:
I hope he will ask (and get..) WC for Lyon.. he has realistic chance for TMC with good preformences in Paris(and Lyon if he'll be there..)and if Blake, Robredo, Ljubicic lose.. (Gonzalez will probably Qualify.. He won today and his draw really wide open..)

Did anyone see the mtch yesterday? He was up a brake in the 1st set and then....:help:

he could ask for a WC at any of the tournaments next week, or am I wrong? I'm sure he could also get one in Basel.

TommyB.
10-17-2007, 09:39 PM
Yes he can ask for a WC. And Tommy should do it because Blake, Gasquet, Moya, Berdych and Ljubicic lost too. :eek:

Yappa
10-17-2007, 11:43 PM
And now also Robredo. :lol:
It's very likely that Haas will now keep his current ranking in the race for another week. I hope that scared him enough, to avoid another horrible 1st/2nd round loss, be it next week, or in Paris.

No I didn't see the Match--thankfully. Blake and Robredo are out for sure. I don't know about Lubo? I think he is also, but I could be wrong about that. Blake got beat by Ancic and Robredo got beat by Del Porto (spelling?).

Lubo is also out. He was defeated by Kubeck (spelling?).

OMG what a day...! Blake, Ljubicic, Robredi, Gasquet, Berdych and only Gonzalez wins :lol:

Well Tommy must play next week if he wants to qualify!

TommyB.

Unbelievable, Robredo lost too. Tommy's 1st round exit hurts even more.

Gonzo is doing great! I like Gonzo so I'm not sorry about his play. The play I'm sorry about is Tommy's :sad:

What I meant that Gonzalez was the one with so many strange losses this year.. and now when everyone losses he wins..:)

Good to see that Haas tries all he can to get to Shanghai. He got a WC for Lyon.

The draw for Lyon is out and WTH? He has to play against Andreev, while Gasquet got a Qualifier.

TommyB.
10-19-2007, 10:33 PM
Andreev again. :( I hope Tommy can forget Moscow, but this is carpet and not clay. ;)

Well Gonzo is out now, but he did pick up good points from the Tournament. It's hard for me to believe that Kiwi is still in the Tournament while Tommy isn't :rolleyes:
You know for some reason my mind just went blank while trying to think about Tommy playing on carpet :confused: I just always have this picture in my mind of Tommy on a hard court. Just like with Coria I have a picture of him in my mind always on clay. I just hope Tommy can do well in Lyon ;) However, thinking of the draw doesn't make me happy :sad: Tommy's play this year has been so inconsistent. It's like there are two Tommys and one plays well while the other doesn't :eek:

Yesterday, When Gonzi-Kiefer started, I was also thinking "Damn, I thought it would be another German.." (I know Hass Gonzalez was supposed to be 3rd round but still..)
Any way, Let's hope Tommy is in good shape now and he is in mood for revange.. I remember how Gonzalez beat him in AO this year, but in Indian Wells it was revange time..!:drool:
Do you know if he was injured in Davis Cup? Or Andreev was just too good?
And yeah, the draw is frusturating.. Monaco and Gasquet got qualy's while Tommy got Andreev :sad:

Andreev was on fire and Tommy played like sh.. :o But this was Davis Cup and Tommy's worst surface. ;)

Didn't Tommy have some sort of health problem which came to light after the Davis Cup Tie? Or was that another Davis Cup Tie :confused: Seems like Tommy is hurt or ill so much :sad: :crying2:

Yes he had stomach problems and wasn't able to play his 2nd singles match against Russia.

That's what I thought. But as I said Tommy is sick or hurt so much I can't keep track of his health :eek:
