:sad: :hug: Fena. He never looked like he was in the match-that along with Andy's wicked serve made this match barely watchable for me. :awww: I would guess Fernando is just worn out from the Olympics yet and perhaps his ankle impaired his movement, although I didn't notice a limp or anything. Anyway, get some well deserved rest now Fena. You made a decent showing at the USO after being in the finals in Beijing :yeah:

Fernando couldn't do anything ... like Sparko said, it seemed like he wasn't in the match.

Too bad :sad:

too too bad Fena couldn't play his game vs. Pandy... I was looking forward to an eventual Rogi/Fena matchup but at least Fena gained pts, right?
