Time to start a new cheeringthread, for a new season. Lots of luck to Stan in 2008 :bounce:


He'll soon (2nd match) start playing at court 2 vs. Alberto Martin..! Have a good start of the year! :yeah:

Nymeria
01-01-2008, 02:01 PM
And he'll also play his doubles match today. He has the honour to play with Santoro and they play a good team, Fyrstenberg & Matkowski, from Poland. Last match of the day at centre court. Lots of luck there as well :yeah:

Getta
01-01-2008, 03:37 PM
Stan defeated Alberto Martin 6-2 6-2 in just 72 min. :yeah:
Though, the real test will be in the 2nd round against Ivo Karlovic.
It would be encouraging for Stan to have a win over Ivo under his belt, a few days before AO starts. ;)

Keep going, Stan. :bounce:


Why Stan gives me the impression that he is absent-minded for 10 min (at least) during his matches? :scratch:

Nymeria
01-01-2008, 04:10 PM
That's a nice result, I followed the start of the match, then we got visitors, so I had to close my laptop.
But yeah, now a test. Lot's of luck vs. Ivo, would that match be tomorrow? :unsure:

Getta
01-01-2008, 04:44 PM
Probably on Thursday. :)

Nymeria

oh that would be nice, because tomorrow I'm not at home

his doubles match should soon start :)

Nymeria

Stan plays Christophe Rochus in the 2nd round. Not Ivo.

Christophe defeated Ivo. :eek: Unbelievable. Just unbelievable.

Nymeria
01-02-2008, 08:34 AM
yeah that's definitely a surprise :eek:

Hope Christophe won't surprise again :p

Nymeria
01-02-2008, 08:42 AM
Btw he will play twice again today! I am afraid I won't be able to follow scores, so I wish him lots of luck already now! Will check results when I am back home tonight...

Sean.J.S.
01-04-2008, 09:25 AM
Wow. :eek: Calleri is a decent player so for Stan to beat him so convincingly is a great achievement. :yeah:

Ljubicic hasn't been playing the best tennis these last 12 months...a good opportunity for Stan to reach the final! :D

Nymeria

Cheering my heart out for Stan the Man.
Could use some help there (all the others are Ljubo fans :help: )

Nymeria
01-04-2008, 12:51 PM
ah yeah livethreads used to post in them years ago... don't like them anymore :p

Well I quite like Ljubo, but for sure Wawa is my fave this match. I am watching it, it's a nie match. But Wawa still makes some unnecessary UE's... but I love to see his backhand going well :D on to the tiebreak! Hopp Wawa :bounce:

Nymeria
01-04-2008, 01:00 PM
Nice tiebreak for Stani :bounce: first set for him! 7-6 (1)

Sean.J.S.
01-05-2008, 01:20 AM
Yeahhh Stan! :) Just beat Murary and you'll have your second career title! :banana: In Umag Djokovic retired so...that took something away from it I'm guessing. I'm really excited about the final. :D

nice to have another chance to watch him :D (I think this will be already more than that I saw him in tv in total last year :p)

Lol I only became a Stanfan after Wimbledon so I only saw his match against Hewitt in Cincinnati and his matches in the US Open against Ginepri and Chela.

It's a great start of the season for my faves so far! I'm really excited about the final as well, will be here again for sure, while watching tv. (I'm home alone, then I always love it to sit with my laptop in front of the tv)

Lol I only became a Stanfan after Wimbledon so I only saw his match against Hewitt in Cincinnati and his matches in the US Open against Ginepri and Chela.

:p

I am sure you will still have plenty of possibilities to watch Stan!
I only have coverage of few tournaments, no TMS or TMC, only some smaller tournies and GS's... so in general the chance I see my players is rather small. That's why I have hardly seen Stan in tv, actually I think I saw him more irl than in tv :lol:

For the slams I have the Eurosport player subscription with matches on demand. Works great!
For the other tournaments I usually have streams via www.channelsurfing.net or www.bet365.com

The problem with livestreams is that my (old) laptop often gives problems then and doesn't want to load them...I used to watch TMS at bwin, but now you need to have money on it, before you can watch. And I was registred with a fake address...

According to the Swiss media Stan strained the stomach muscle already on Sunday in the training and underwent an ultrasonic testing.
Stan said that the risk wasn't worth it to continue the match against Giquel. He would have felt the pain more after the second set and was handicaped during his serve.
He mentioned that he is really disappointed especially as he thought he had a good form. He will return to Switzerland for further medical check-ups.

Get well soon Stan :)

martine2
01-19-2008, 11:22 AM

stan played realy well, he was very solid and was getting great width with his cc backhand that was opening up the court for his forehand or put away volley. baggy was spraying forehands all over the place, i've never seen him hit so many shots into the net. stan should have wrapped it up in 2 sets but im pleased that he bounced back so well in the 3rd set.

A 4-6 6-1 7-6(2) 6-2 victory for Stan over Ignatik. Vlad is a rising star so it may have been a tougher opposition than he initally thought...

Congrats to Stephane on the win over Mirnyi also. :yeah:

Oops,, I guess I was typing so fast that I couldn't controle of the spelling.. :lol:

That's what I thought as well, but I read an Australian article on Saturday about its team's playoff scenario, and it was saying like, the worst case of the Playoff was to face Roger Federer's Switzerland at home,, (and the best scenario would be facing the Netherlands,, it also said.. :p ) So,, now I don't know..

That is because Switzerland and Holland are both trying to get back in world group, while Australia is defending it's place :shrug: it doesn't confuse me. I hope Switzerland will play Belgium...

Australia is also trying to get back, I think. Won against Thailand this weekend 5-0.

Really? Interesting! I didn't follow that part of the ties... concentrated on world group and europe (after all that's where my faves play :p) Still I think a team going for promotion should face a team going for degredation... it would be unfair otherwise. :shrug: lemme check the rules!

Yes, it would be unfair so.. At least they should do the seedings of the playoff teams, if that's not the case, in my opinion... please check the rules for me, too! :D

That's exactly the reason why I want them to play Belgium :lol:

And I cannot really find it in the rules, it says indeed that a seeding is made based on the ranking... :shrug: but it's unlogical!

Reading this, I thought you wanted to make a joke about Dutch people.

You know, sort of saying that they're a Homo Neadertal species, instead of being Homo Sapiens. Such stuff.

Sorry for misleading by my pure typing mistake.. I don't know that kind of stuff, and I never ever want to make jokes about ethnic groups. I am going to edit that post.

He couldn't get a tougher draw than that.
Well, I think it's safe to say that Stan has the weapons to dictate play and beat his first round opponent. :)
