AVENDAÑO HA DECIDIDO QUE SEAN ELLOS LA PAREJA
Robredo y Feliciano López formarán el 'doble' de los Juegos de Atenas
La 'Armada' acudirá con sus mejores raquetas a los próximos Juegos Olímpicos de Atenas con la intención de colgarse más de una medalla. Juan Avendaño, capitán del cuarteto masculino que acudirá en agosto a Grecia, ya ha decidido que Tommy Robredo y Feliciano López formen la pareja española en la modalidad de dobles.

What I've heard is that Tommy will play double with Feli in Olympics.It's an interesting news but very nice for Tommy because he got the chance to play there.
~Vamos,show the best you~

gracias sonia...creo que es un poco raro que Tommy juegue con Feli y no Rafael...dicen que Rafa va a jugar con Carlos Moyà pero bueno...lo más importante es que juega Tommy, no?.

I think that was about why Tommy isn't playing doubles with Rafa instead of with Feli.. or not? And that the important thing is that Tommy plays or something? Help me out here guys, cuz my spanish is so crappy,... this is all very vague to me ;)

Well Tommy and most of the other Spanish players left from Barcelona airport this afternoon on their way to Athens...everyone except JCF and Vivi Ruano (who left from Madrid) and Rafa Nadal and Anabel Medina-Garrigues (who are still in Sopot) were there...so by now I guess they've arrived in Athens and will start their intense training tomorrow...hope they all stay safe and well while they're there.

In case some of you haven't seen yet, Tommy plays LAMINE OUAHAB from Algeria in the first round of the Olympics. This guy is only 19 and is ranked 335...he plays mainly on the Future circuit so I think Tommy was very lucky with his draw this time. In the second round he'd meet either Santoro or Volandri and in the third round most likely ROGER FEDERER. Personally, I think Tommy could easily make it to the third round of this tournament, but we'll just have to wait and see.
As for the doubles, the draw is a bit tougher because he and Feli López have to play Etlis/Rodriguez of Argentina.

There is NO way he'll make it to the third round easily. He should crush Ouahab yes, but Volandri is not an easy opponent at all. Federer will be too strong I fear. But:

VAMOS TOMMY :woohoo: I hope he does well. Why does he have to play with Lopez though? Can't stand him. Hope they do beat Martin and Gaston though..

If Tommy pairs with Nadal, they will have a better chance. Nadal is a good double player. He already reach the semi-final in double(w/Al Martin) at Sopot. I don't know why they didn't pair Nadal with Tommy. Moya can't play in double anyway. It wastes Nadal's opportunity to pair him with Moya.

I think Tommy will be able to beat either Volandri or Santoro in the second round. Pippo hasn't played that much lately and it wouldn't surprise me if he lost to Fabrice anyway...and with Tommy's good record against Fabrice, most recently beating him convincingly at Cinci last week, I think it's very likely he'll make it to the third round.
As for the doubles, I also agree that the pairing with Feli is weird, especially as they don't get on at all...I think it was to do with the rankings though because otherwise, for sure they'd have matched him with Rafa like they do in the Davis Cup.

Not sure if any of you saw Tommy marching in the Opening Ceremony...I didn't, even though I was looking for him...I only saw Carlos, JC and Feli...but someone in the General Messages posted a pic of him at the Ceremony, so thought you might want to see it too:

sure volandri has been doing well the past few weeks, but this is at challenger level and on clay, so we cant read how he is going to play at the olympics. i feel fabrice will actually win

OK Tommy hasn't been doing too well. Yes he's beaten Ouahab and Santoro, but the scores were closer than expected or hoped for I guess. But his part of the draw is completely open now and he could even reach the final four and thus maybe a medal :bounce:

yeah I know!!! USA v Chile...and to think Spain was one of the few countries that had 4 players there...and none of them made it beyond the quarters...quite disappointing really. I had picked Carlos to get a medal, and then seeing how Tommy's draw opened up after Roger's loss I also had him in there as a strong medal chance...anyway, was not to be...I'll go for Fernando now hehe

Argh this final is so not interesting. I hate watching Gonzo; I don't like Massu and well I hope Fish wins it now..

~EMiLiTA~
08-20-2004, 11:16 AM
hehe well I think USA has more than enough gold medals already and will have many more opportunities to get them anyway in athletics etc so would be nice to see a smaller nation like Chile get gold and silver!
