Vamos :yeah:

[16] CANAS, Guillermo (ARG) vs BYE
VOLANDRI, Filippo (ITA) vs BJORKMAN, Jonas (SWE)
QUALIFIER vs QUALIFIER
BYE vs MONACO, Juan (ARG) [21]

[27] KOHLSCHREIBER, Philipp (GER) vs BYE

Yeah but a matchup with Pico in the 2nd or 3rd round. That is a dangerous match. I'm getting very excited as I think he will do better this year than last year, as he was prolly just happy and relieved to be out there playing competitively.

Possible matchup with Pico will be in 3rd round.
They only played each other 3 times and Willy leads 3-0. Pico is a good player and he's still improving but I don't know if he's completely recovered from his ankle injury yet. It still seemed to bother him a bit during his last matches.

He isn't ;) He's in Nadal's half with Ferrer & Djokovic as top seeds on his side

Willy will play in the doubles with Nalbi

(8) Hanley/Paes vs Ferrer/Nadal
Canas/Nalbandian vs Fyrstenberg/Matkowski
Monaco/Starace vs Benneteau/Mahut
Gonzalez/Tursunov vs (3) Nestor/Zimonjic

I hope that the results will be like the Madrid 2007 :)

Thanks 4 the h2h with Pico. Now a matchup with Ferrer and Willy the amount of running those guys would be doing would make my head spin. Is he playing with Nalbi for the Olympics maybe?

Good luck Willy against Pico (man that will be some eye candy action) hope you have a good match, also good luck in the doubles against Hanley and Paes.

Aquarianbabe

The wind could be a factor today as it was blowing in the Moya vs Blake match but Willy should be use to the wind by now he had enough of it in Las Vegas. Wish I had vision can't live stream as I am at work. Sending good vibes anyway.

fuck you pico, you non-fighter!!!
hope you die after the match and your familiy too!!!!
2-1 leading and then 2-6!!! you shoot the balls around the court....
fucking asshole, I kill your dad, mom and all of your friends!!!!
if it was a fix between you and canas, I hope all argentians will die!!!
argentians can only fix matches or doping!!!!!!

wedda
03-18-2008, 05:58 AM
Great he won, i think getting broken while serving for the match is his new good luck charm.

I didn't have work today so I stayed up till 5am to watch that and they ended up showing only 5 games then they started showing the djokovic match :mad:

but for me he looked pretty solid in these 5 games, not impressive but good enough and finally the job was done:)

Who was that lurker I am sitting here open mouthed as I am speechless. Well done Willy bad luck Pico read that he got a few bad line calls and fell to bits. Why were people booing Canas? Did he get a ball abuse warning? Did he seemed troubled by it? Do not respond to lurkers.

martine2
03-18-2008, 10:45 AM
Good win Willy!! :D

Now Nole and that will be hard :scared:

Last year in Miami final Willy was injured and exhausted because of the number of matches he had played, but also Noles form is pretty good now.
Let's hope for the best!!

canas

Congratulations Willy :worship:

I hope that the crash Nole now :armed:

he is definitely annoying, I really hope willy wins that one.
It will be difficult but he has won tougher matches before, so lets hope for the best

Well he did better then last year in IW so that is good for the ranking points :)

All the luck to him for tonight!

Not that much of a surprise. Nole is a terrible match up for him.
Anyway, he had a good run in IW and I'm glad about that :D

I have just checked the draw and if he gets to the 3rd round he plays Gonzo. Oh no, have to go and check h2h now. Hope its good news. Let's hope Gonzo is having an off day. I like him as well.

martine2
03-26-2008, 09:47 AM
2nd round he plays Starace (H2H 0-0) or a qualifier and then eventually Gonzalez.
I think his chances against Gonzo are good.

Aquarianbabe
03-26-2008, 10:56 PM
They haven't played against each other since 2002, also they have been practicing together in Miami and apparently Willy was serving particularly well and frustrating Gonzo. I don't know if he'll get to the final so I'll be happy with a SF at least he won't lose to many points. Final would be fantastic though.

Aquarianbabe
03-27-2008, 03:33 AM
Is there anyway we can get Willy to do a blog from a tournament. I think he might be funny and interesting. Anyone have any ideas how we can go about this?

I think you forgot Nole is pretty close to him in the draw and he is a terrible match up for Willy.
I have good hope he can get past Gonzo but then Nole will be waiting :(

No, Poto lost to Warburg in straight sets. :smash:

Willy can get past Warburg, then he'll meet Gonzo. I can't wait for that match :D

Woohoo Willstar won in 2 tight sets. As I could only scoreboard watch as I am at work from the posts it was a really entertaining match. Bad luck to Gonzo though as I really like him as well. Willy should be able to beat Andreev.

:angel:

martine2
03-31-2008, 03:31 AM
Yesssssssss, well done :yeah:

I had good hopes on this one and I'm glad I was right!

I like Gonzo very much too but I'm glad he didn't win today :angel:

Aquarianbabe
04-01-2008, 12:42 AM
I got to watch the 2nd set on replay last night and it was pretty good. Willy just never gives up that is why I like watching him so much. He doesn't get down on himself he just gets on with it. Great shotmaking and Gonzo hit a fantastic lob. Saw Willy' gf and she looked really young. She did have a nice green top on though and was eating an icecream.

A lot of ranking points lost but lets look ahead and wish for the best in the following events

Aquarianbabe
04-01-2008, 11:59 PM
I agree with Martine2, I feel that way every time I watch my fav player or team they always end up losing. But then I thought hey Willy was down 0-3 before I got to watch the match and he broke back. He seemed really nervous maybe he wanted it too much. I kept thinking if he just wins the 2nd set he will be ok. Andreev had a nice game when it counted though. At least he kept focus and didn't give up. Is the Davis Cup next?

dulkogi

Andreev was the better player and he deserved to win.
Please let the clay season start now and lets hope he does well there :)
