Not Chardy in the first round :sobbing: He's one of the few guys I like there. Well, take him out Tommy, what must be done, must be done :cool:

Great, the 7th seed, and I've never heard of him. :p Well, I actually have, he's fresh of a hard court final, so not to be underestimated.
Still a nice draw, pretty open, a possible quarterfinal vs. Baghdatis or Gulbis being the biggest thread until the final.
Looking forward to it; sure, the last two defeats were unfortunate, but even though Tommy lost both times in straight sets and wasn't playing too well, both matches very pretty close, and with a little fine-tuning, a lot is possible ...

Well, you should have heard of him before ;) He was ranked No.145 before storming into 2008 FO Round of 16 by deafeating Nalbandian and Tursunov. Afterwards he lost 67 67 57 against Alamagro ;)

tough first round, but although Chardy is the higher seed, this match is about Tommy's form, he's the better player, and if he's in good form (unlike last week probably) he should win.
Go get them Tommy :cool:

Tommy will start with the doubles today; I think I prefer it that way, starting with the doubles, rather than the other way around ...

yeah enough of that :) btw Tommy and Hill lost 1st set 3-6,but why is Tommy suddenly so interested in doubles ? :confused:

el tenista

Becuase he feels fine and wants to get a bit of additional match time on court ;)

5-2 ahead in set 2, come on!

Anyway,hope he will learn from his mistakes today,witch there were plenty and get ready for IW.
I'm patient as well ;)

I don´t know what to think of today. Is it kind of a black tuesday?
All matches with german participation I was watching today were lost: first Schüttler, then Petzschner, Gremelmayr and now Haas.
Really a strange day.

This will be really difficult loss to swallow..

Poor performance after all, and almost the same scoreline like last week :o

I'm still patient, but my hopes for IW and Miami are really low at the moment :shrug:

Do you want me to upload the match for you, I recorded it, just in case. Was about to delete it again though ...

Maybe Tommy wasn't in a good mood because there were hardly any people watching, at least the ranks I got a glimpse of were almost completely empty.

would be a poor excuse :shrug:

well I think he needs more match time, but the next break is coming after Miami, because he won't play any clay tournament i guess...tough situation at the moment :sad:

Lugburz
02-24-2009, 10:13 PM
I just hope he gets ready for the major tours as the upcoming IW... Still,we can't expect major changes as he only played 7 matches since August. I hope for the best for the important next tour ...

02-24-2009, 10:34 PM
Remember how badly Tommy played at the same time last year, with defeats against Hartfield in Delray Beach, Isner in San Jose, Becker in Memphis and then the destruction against Ferrer in Dubai (3:6 0:6), all of them in round 1 or 2. And then, all of a sudden, he exploded in Indian Wells and beat Benneteau, Roddick, Verdasco and Murray! :worship:
At the moment it is hard to believe he will be able to do something similar again this year, but at least we can hope.

thefly
02-24-2009, 11:41 PM
I think it's impossible to predict or expect anything for the upcoming weeks. It's not like he doesn't know how to play tennis anymore, or has to work on something specific, improve something. He's long past that. At some point, he will just kick in again, and that could be pretty much any time. Could be next week, could be next month ...

I can help but wonder how good Tommy's health really is right now :unsure: Tommy normally tries very hard to play down the issue of his health. And he is caught in the cycle that he can't get much match play because he isn't winning and (if his health is really all right) he needs more match play to win.

I don't know, according to comments it doesn't seem worth your effort and time. :sad:

So it's IW and Miami next now. Lets hope for a good draw and the form from the start of the season.

Pretty bad loss imo.. Chardy is a player that Tommy can definitely beat. I didn't see the match, but out of your comments I can only thank for that Get it together for IW and Miami Tommy, it's your only way to gain points until the grass season.

No, that's a mistake. There is a corrected version in the ATP Playerzone as kiwi posted in the IW topic. But there will be at least one withdrawal, believe me ;)

In the first version of the Acceptance list the ATP forgot to put in Chela with his protected ranking. They corrected it and unfortunately Tommy was the one who dropped out...:sad:
But like El Tenista said there are a few players in doubt already. Gonzalez with a backinjury and Verdasco (I think ankle) for example.
