Fernando Verdasco, one of the hottest players of this clay-court spring, showed that he didn't come to Nice without a strong will to go all the way. Verdasco who captured the title in Barcelona, and was runner-up in Monte Carlo, needed only one hour and 6 minutes to oust Frenchman Florent Serra 6-2, 6-2. His next oponent, Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsky should watch out.

Well done Fer! :bounce: There's concerns about his ankle/fatigue but I'm sure he knows what he's doing. It's good he kept this match short anyway. ;) He's been a bit of an Iron Man lately. :p

(Does anyone have a streaming link? I found this one (http://www.fromsport.com/video-253983.html), but it's not working. Yet, at least.)

Early break for 2*-1. :cool:

I just caught the break. *grin* Found a working link, thank goodness.

So, are we the only two watching? :wavey:

4-1. :bounce:

First set 6-2. I think Fer wants to hurry and finish off these matches, save some energy. :devil:

FlameOn
05-20-2010, 02:29 PM
3-1. :woohoo:

Came back from 0-40 down in that game.

Silawen
05-20-2010, 02:48 PM
Pity he didn't hold the break. 4-3* right now, Fernando serving.

Stakhovsky is really using his drop-shots well, I have to say. Fernando certainly isn't the slowest person ever. *grin*

Ales_Alessandra
05-20-2010, 03:09 PM
:eek: WTH!! Just got home! I thought this match could be over by now! TB 4/3 to the ucrain? Anyone watching? Something happened? Will open stream, but doesn't really work that much! ;)

Ales_Alessandra
05-20-2010, 03:16 PM
Right! Stream just work by the time he lost the set and to see him stratching his left arm! :awww: Did he feel something before? :scared:

*Edit* Trainer on court now! :sad:

Silawen
05-20-2010, 03:18 PM
I'm not sure. My stream died right around the time the tiebreak began, so I can't really say anything about that. The second set was a lot tougher than the first, though. I don't know Stakhovsky that well, but he's played much better that set and even has a break now! :eek::sad:

Ales_Alessandra
05-20-2010, 03:30 PM
The stream just opened on his face so at the first I tought thwy were showing Soda's match! :lol: Looks like his game boast on the second to now. What I'm worried it's about Nando's physical condition. :awww: He will be crashed if he loses it because of some kind of injury, by everyone in MTF mostly. And I will be pretty bad too, on changing my mind and thinking that wasn't that bad for him palying Nice. It's 3/1 for the ucrain, but I guess Fer is already thinking on Paris!!! :sad:

Ales_Alessandra
05-20-2010, 03:45 PM
Watching on streams make me really MAD! :mad:
It's not only delayed but also frezze most of times!!
Stressed!!! Fer broke back, had another BP in the last game, but they are 4/4. Fer serving now! I don't want him to lose, never want him to lose, actualy ;), but I hope he doesn't push himself to much. Losing here will be better taken than losing on RG on earlier rounds! :awww:

Ales_Alessandra
05-20-2010, 03:57 PM
YEAHHHH!!!! I take back the part he was already thinking on Paris!
:banana: :banana: :dance:

But really, hope he doesn't go to far and put himself in jeopardy.
Good come back FER! :hug:

FlameOn
05-20-2010, 10:02 PM
This was weird. It was partway through the second set and then I dozed off (it was late lol), then I woke up again and I saw he'd dropped the second and had MPs in the third.

Good comeback FeVer. :yeah:

I don't know if I like him playing here though. :sad: Him burning out or being injured at RG is my worst nightmare. :bigcry:

FlameOn
05-20-2010, 10:09 PM
Sorry just continuing my rant. If he shows up out of shape for RG. :smash: He shouldn't have played here! :o

A week's rest and practice he would've been perfect for RG. :o

Ales_Alessandra
05-20-2010, 10:53 PM
:awww: I'm afraid he won't be 99% for RG. He actually started this clay season with doubts about playing here or there, before MC for instance, because there was always something bothering him. It seems to be a consistence on his life, prefessional tennis life is like that, so don't really know what is gonna happen in RG. What I do know is that he can't go beyond his limits, really hope he gives his body a chance for call it off. :hug:

05-21-2010, 04:54 AM
I couldnt sleep when fer played.. hmm i just went to bed after he had won last night! Tv didnt live nice ... they only live mary cohnr Semi final today good luck to our fever!

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 11:21 AM
French draw coming, loks like Fer is on Rafa'a half draw and he will get Igor Kunitysn in R1. RG doesn't look good to me so far. :awww:
Soon will post the draw on draw's thread! Fer. :hug: Wonder what is going through his mind now, SF due in less than 2 hours and a tough RG in the next 3 days. :confused:

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 11:25 AM
Fer's draw actually looks pretty good to me. He's in Rafa's quarter but before that...every match is winnable. Gonzalez could be tough. Anyway he'll have to beat Rafa sometime if he's truly got ambitions to win a slam.

I wish he'd just withdraw from his SF. He has arm problem now, he was clutching his back according to someone. Urggh...FER! :shout:

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 11:49 AM
If wasn't for his arm, I totally gree with you! I have already said that if he wants to win a GS, draw must be the last problem. Yesterday I got home and turn on the stream just by the time he was having treatment for his arm, NOT THE EXACTLY image I wanted to see, after that he started bad the 3rd set, thought he was going to lose it, but no. So, no words yet if he still playing SF, but I guess a retirement for injury is not what we would like to hear, conflicted!! :confused:
Anyway, :o If all goes well in Paris, Fer has a long way, I really would like to see him playing Rafa like AO 2009, with his victory, that would be awesome.
Possible opponents: Kunitsyn, Kohlschreiber, Almagro/Gonzalez (tough), Nadal, Ferrer, Federer. VAMOS FERRRRR!! Always!!! :woohoo:

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 12:54 PM
I remember last year he had abdominal problems during US Open and still made the quarters. But I'd rather Fer be fully fit and not have to play through too much pain at a slam. :(

Anyway looks like the SF is going ahead, it's about to start. Hopefully he can keep the matches short from now on. ;)

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 01:00 PM
Yepi! It's all set! :awww:

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 01:10 PM
I hope he knows what he's doing. :scared: Three titles so early in the year would be pretty cool though. :hearts:

Oh and I love how similar our avatars are. :p

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 01:13 PM
Right, Fer is on court, WHAT ABOUT that huge white band on his arm, down the elbow? :sobbing:

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 01:20 PM
:o He shouldn't be playing. :smash:

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 01:27 PM
Mayer has a good service, while Nando still has problem with his 1st service. Are you watching stream? What are you getting from his body language? My stream is most of the time frozen! :mad:
Yeah, our avies quite match! :lol:

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 01:30 PM
I'm not watching stream, only livescores. My internet is too slow. :o

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 01:33 PM
:awww:

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 01:44 PM
Nando's only lost two points on serve (one with a DF) so far. So he seems to be hanging in there. Maybe we were worrying about nothing and that he'll be fine for RG. Or maybe Mayer's just a really bad returner. :awww:

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 01:46 PM
Not long points so far, none had BP yet and Fer is holding, no sign of pain! :awww: Very thoughtful he is on changings! :unsure:

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 01:47 PM
Just now Nando got 3, no 2 BP :p

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 01:50 PM
YEAH!! BP up, racket down the floor from Mayer! Yeah Mayer be a kind frind and just make it easier for Fer and us! ;)

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 01:51 PM
Vamos! :rocker2:

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 01:54 PM
He lost 1 SP, frustration, racket on the floor and Mayer back on! Easy is not on Fer's dictionary!

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 01:55 PM
Dammit, screwed up serving for the set. :o

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 02:00 PM
A bit too much of this lately from Fer. He had SPs in Madrid VS Youzhny, 6-2, 3-1 (40-15) yesterday and was still taken to three, and now he's wasted serving for the set here.

He was very solid in this area up until the last few tournaments. Bring it back FER!

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 02:00 PM
Had BP again but Mayer holds, so 6/5 Fer serving.

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 02:03 PM

7-3 in the TB. Good job Fer. :rocker2:

Ohoh, he really seems injured. Trainer on court. *flinches*

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 02:12 PM
:yawn:7/6 Fer, it could have been 6/4. :rolleyes:
Anyway, trainer on, for Mayer! phew!! :awww:

Silawen
05-21-2010, 02:15 PM
Pwew. My stream died just after I saw the trainer on court. I assumed it was for Fer. XD

Tough luck for Mayer, though. For his sake I hope he can continue.

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 02:15 PM
Ooh thank God it's not for Fer. Sucks for Mayer though. :(

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 02:25 PM
At this time, I'm just praying for a match in 2, avoid 3rd Fernando, please!!!!

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 02:33 PM
trainer again for Mayer!!! :awww:

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 02:39 PM
What's Mayer been getting treated?

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 02:46 PM
yes, it was, tight match, 1h25min already! :awww:

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 02:48 PM
Does Fer seem physically OK?

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 02:49 PM
As overall, today Fer looks much better than yesterday, even with that stripe that it doesn't seem to be bothering him! 5/4, holding there on 2nd, could finish it with a break! VAMOS!!

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 03:02 PM
:eek: Can't believe this, he won it breaking Mayer's service!! :banana:
Now looking forward for his thoughts on his arm!!! :dance: FER! :hug:

FlameOn
05-21-2010, 03:02 PM
Vamos! :rocker2: Only one match in this pointless tournament to go, then onto the bigger leagues. :rocker2:

Ales_Alessandra
05-21-2010, 03:09 PM
yeah! Until the toughest league! :awww: Hope his motivation come over everything in order to go farther in RG. :scared:

Silawen
05-21-2010, 03:46 PM
Well, winning a tournament right before RG would certainly up the motivation, I think. (And the confidence!) Let's just hope he's not tired and does really well at RG. :D

(And, unrelated, that this match didn't affect Mayer's chances, either.)

Ales_Alessandra
05-22-2010, 11:47 AM
Good luck for Fer today on the final and for those following on SB or stream, not a easy task! ;) Won't be able to follow it today, so hopefully by the time I come back, match will be over in a short period with a win from Verdasco!! :woohoo:
VAMOS FERRRRRRR!!!! :banana:
Later! :)

1 Fer will be mad enough for all of us
2 He got to the final, and in the physical state he's in atm...we should be happy he got there :o coz he's slowly falling apart...

I'm still furious :mad: but mostly I'm just worried that has knocked his confidence.

Yeah! Pretty sure if there is one person really mad with this all is Fer. Poor guy! He is having a really great clay season, I guess he didn't expect this, that's why Nice on his shedule, but just right before RG he gets all this pressure of being one of the big names to reach SF in Paris. We know already he has his mind issues during the matches, but we also know he has improved a lot in last tour. At this time of adjustments ups and downs will be there still. So, today was Nice, past already, now the proof of his changing might come inthe following week, where he should get over the mistakes and think he can do a gret tour. beacause he is capable, talent and belives in himself.
:awww: VAMOS FERRRR!!!! RG here we go! :banana:

Feli better do some serious love making, bring Nadal too while you are at it. That was a bad choke, Nando let the crowd get to him and went off the deep end. I have never seen him get so mad, he was cussing and yelling and even his dad told him to calm down. Wow, it was a crazy match, at times Nando played well but he should have never let the crowd into this match, it is the only reason he lost it. And even though I really like Richie, I have to say that injury time out in the third set was some serious bull shit. That man in the crowd who was yelling obscenities at Nando should have been kicked out. I do think Nando will be more than fine for the French. (More French people jeering just what he needs).

Carlita
05-22-2010, 04:24 PM

Why they do that? :scratch: It's not like DC cup! :(
It's definitely right support your country man, but no need to bash the other player for it!! :mad:
Anyway, feel bad for Nando's behavior, even he, after some time, will think he went too far and that it was a shame to let the crowd get into his mind.
So, ok done with Nice already!
Looking forward for th other weeks, clay 2010 is almost over! :awww:
Being a good ride so far, even with the dramas! ;)

I doubt the Paris crowd will carry on from the Nice crowd. But they can give players a really rough time. I always felt sorry for Mary Pierce. Murray will experience it in Paris - but if Gasquet doesn't put up a fight, then he will get barracking from the crowd.

I come to say that because thecrowd cheers for their country man, it's not a reason to insult! I heard it on the radio, I didn't saw the match.
Fernando, you should know that your crowd during the Madrid final this and the past years booed Fed when he was going to check the mark on the line or applauded when he put a 1st serve into the net.

The crowd thing is just an excuse. The top players ignore the crowds, or at least should. The crowd were ugly but it was no excuse for choking the third set away like that.

I saw Rafa get a tough time when he played Grosjean - the next time he played, he was cheered. And it happens at all 'home' tournaments - I was embarassed when the crowd applauded a double fault by Kafelnikov when he played Henman at Wimbledon a few years ago - and look how the US crowd treated Agassi's opponents. Even further back, I'll never forget the flak Lendl took every time he played Johnny Mac at the US Open.

Of course players like Lendl and Rios feed off it:)

Fer played 2 matches at the Boodles Challenge, lost one and won the other one. Once he lost the first match he won't be playing the finals. He is still adapting his game to the grass. Some DFs, but no sign of injury, which is good. Tomorrow the draw for Wimbledon will be out. Fingers crossed for a good one. Looks like Ivo is out, feel bad for him, but is kind good for Fer. ;)

ITA agree with this. I felt so bad for him when he lost that early in the FO. He's had such a good run on clay this season. Getting to the QF would be icing on the cake and well deserved IMO. Too bad it didn't happen, but I hope he can reach further in Wimbly. First couple of matches should be fairly easy, but after that, well.. looks like he has a tough draw yet again. He's in the same half as Soderling and Nadal. Poor guy. But I guess everything is possible. I believe in him. Vamos Fer!

He's playing Bastad next, then a week after that finishes he'll play in Switzerland (not one but two pointless clay MMs :p), after that Cincinatti, Monteal and then USO. In addition to DC duties which I think might be just after Bastad. Looks like another packed schedule. :scratch:

I miss him though, so bring it on. I just wish he'd drop Switzerland. Even Bastad seems uncecessary to me. A clay MM when RG is long gone?

Fer would perhaps play for himself injured but not davis cup (see doubles only play in the final last year) - he wouldn't risk the team losing because he wasn't 100%.

I think he's rested and injury free but he's a rhythm player that likes to play weeks in a row and build up some momentum.

Sommarsverige
07-12-2010, 11:25 PM
Like Carlita already said I am pretty sure that Fer wouldn´t play if he is injured...
And to be honest he really didn´t play that much lately...he lost early in Wimbledon, so he almost had 2 weeks off before Davis Cup and also in Davis Cup it was less stressful than last year for him.

I really hope Fer is in a good shape and can do some damage here in Båstad, especially to some Swedish guy ;)
At least Fers team has already arrived ;)

He pulled off from Gstaad, Switz. So I think he will be fine for Washington. Tennis players will never be injury free, they try to minimize those. So far he is hanging there. We are aware of his past injuries, I think he is pretty much over most of them, sciatic nerve might be a treat though. But I'm sure he is trying the best to be healthy so he can play his best game in the second half of the season.

I seriously doubt the concert was the reason he wasn't playing that well.... :o
I too doubt it but during the last few months, he's been partying, attending events all over the world, focussing on seemingly everything except tennis. :( As soon as he lost at Wimbledon he was on a boat with Feli and a couple of hookers.

Maybe I'm being too hard on him, but that's 'cause I love him and expect a lot of him. :)

He's allowed to have a holiday isn't he? Most players take a holiday after wimbledon :lol: my God....:lol: Also, I don't like the fact you call the girls on the boat hookers...you don't know if they are :rolleyes: and even if they were, it's not of our fucking business what Fer doesn in his spare time and on /off the tennis court. He 's a big boy, he knows what's best for him and Im sure he'll make mistakes along the way...and hopefully he'll learn from them. There's more to life than tennis, even for a tennis pro.....

So all we can do is cheer him on when he's playing...win or lose..... and if it's too hard to handle his losses or seeing he's enjoying life to the fullest, maybe you need a new hobby ;)

I think you're overreacting. I think we're allowed to show concern for what he's doing off-court. It doesn't mean we're violating his business. Around most fanbases (at least what I've seen on WTA forum especially) showing concern for any apparent slacking off is something I'm very much used to seeing (and I'm not saying he has been I'm just saying it's been LOOKING that way).

It's only here where it's somehow seen a violation of his privacy. Showing disappointment towards losses is also something I'm very much used to everywhere else that is discouraged here.

Verdasco's my favourite player and always will be until he retires. I had faith he'd win a title last year eventually, and also that he'd start beating more top 10 players eventually and he proved me right. So I'm sure everything will be fine.

I just don't see that we should be concerned about him going on holiday or going to concerts or parties... it would be such a waste of our energy coz Fernando does what Fernando wants to do :shrug: I didnt say you were violating his privacy either..... but yeah, it IS non of our business what he does.... unless he makes it our business by paying us for our advice.

It just gets on my nerves that everytime the guy does something off court, like actually LIVING his life like any normal guy his age, that he gets to cop a lot of negative responses in here. Life's not about tennis alone.....

and of course feel free to be upset when he loses, I don't like it either, but nothing we can do about it. Fer has to find a way to fix it so that next time he does win that match. I am upset as well when he loses, but Im not going to look for excuses in his personal life :shrug: or anywhere else. If he loses, be disappointed and move on.

but whatever, you believe what you want and so will I. Be negative or positive all you want.... Im not even bothering anymore. This forum used to be one of the most fun and relaxed parts of MTF.... how times have changed...

I like the fact that he's human and lives his life to the fullest. Not everyone on this world gets that opportunity, so Im happy for him. :shrug: and if he happens to win some prizes along the way, well that would be fantastic :)

oh...the WTA forum is nothing like MTF..which is something a lot of posters from the WTA forum do not seem to understand :o

Interesting discussion on Fer's 'partying' lifestyle. The players don't live like monks on the tour. And having been to the Monte Carlo tournament a few times, and stayed in the players hotel, I know most of them aren't tucked up at 10 pm ;) I saw a few of them going OUT at midnight, and they had matches the next day which didn't seem to bother them.

Lots of his service games were getting pushed to 40-30 and deuce and he got broken a couple times :scared:

Hope he can work on that some more before the Masters, he has a chance to pick up lots of points in Cincy especially, but he needs start playing a lot better.

If anyone tweets - tweet Fer some positivity. Safina and Querry both quit twitter because of abuse, so outweigh any with positivity! He's such a nice guy on there that I've lost all objectivity and don't care how he plays. His sched is now Toronto, Cincy and US Open. Not defending New Haven.

It's so puzzling considering he seems to be thriving on confidence from the tone of his tweets, he always seems excited because of being able to read the support from fans. I guess it's not a lack of confidence, and I don't think fitness, considering he spent two weeks in Vegas working on that.

Who knows, but I hope he can get his game back together quickly :shrug:

Sure, SOME of the players do, but Fer is better than that! He is actually a pretty decent player with a lot of potential. But the thing is that all the partying is ruining it for him. It's about priorities. He should prioritize the tennis first, the partying should be second. And also, I don't mind him partying in itself, BUT it's unnecessary to party the night before a match! I have no doubt players party a lot, but then again, most players do not have the talent that Fer has, and therefore don't have much to lose, unlike Fer. He actually has a very good ranking to defend, and I hate to see him fail just because he parties too much. He's been in this game too long, he's been a tennis player for a long time. He should know better.

Being negative is not my intention. :rolleyes:

I don't mind you saying that. I am always critical to all my fave tennis players. Sure, I am a fan, but that doesn't necessarily mean I have to agree to EVERYTHING they do or say. Being a fan and watching Fer destroy his ranking because of partying is frustrating when we KNOW he has the potential to reach far. Just look at the clay season. Do you get what I mean? I think I'm allowed to be a fan but still critize him if he does something that I think is stupid. But I will forever cheer him. Because I like him. So yeah, but sometimes I will be frustrated and speak my mind. Hope that is ok..

If anyone tweets - tweet Fer some positivity. Safina and Querry both quit twitter because of abuse, so outweigh any with positivity! He's such a nice guy on there that I've lost all objectivity and don't care how he plays. His sched is now Toronto, Cincy and US Open. Not defending New Haven.

Auch. I blame that idiot dylan.

I always tweet him only positive messages. Never anything negative. Even when he loses I always say betetr luck in the next tourney etc. I mean, it's fine to be annoyed when he loses, but the players are people too. They can get hurt from what we say, so we have to be careful. It's better to take out my frustration here instead, and not attack him on Twitter for losing. I'm sure he did his best, even though it wasn't his best day. Besides, Bahgdatis is a very good player. It's not embarrassing to lose to him.

Toronto and Cincinnati Masters, then US Open

Thanks for the update! I'm looking forward to Toronto :D

Oh, and one more thing.. I just saw Fer's latest tweets. Is he now having something going on with Eva Longoria? But I thought she had a boyfriend? Or? I'm confused, because he also was with Shakira not too long ago. Fer is such a womanizer.. :bolt:

Actually, Sokk, based on ranking, Fer isn't better than some of those players I saw. Top 10 players. Heard the same thing from a friend who stayed in the players hotel in Cinncy. I thnk Fer is better off quitting Twitter anyway. Keep his private life and thoughts to himself, and then he can avoid criticism. Plus, spending too much time on the computer has to be bad for him ;)

Jenrios
08-07-2010, 07:21 PM
I don't think it's his so-called partying lifestyle, a lack of confidence or lack of fitness - he played too much on clay, paid for it with injury and losing at Wimbledon, and now lacks match practice. It's not a crisis - yet.

I have to say that from the latest losses this one was not even close from the previous ones, I didn't think it was so bad. Only yesterday I could finally watch it. Scoreboard/Livestreams don't say much! My thoughts: He is definitely stronger, his FH is powerful, and foot work is good too, even with him bigger. Off court he is pretty happy judging by his tweets. By Nice/RG there was a rough time off court that was kind affecting his on court performance. It was tough, but he finally seemes to have managed it and found on twiter a way to have fun, I guess. He got a WC for Washington, I think it was good for rythm, but maybe he wasn't really focused on win this, points there wouldn't change much, he just needed to finish ahead Roddick. It happened. Therefore, I think it was for the best. I rather see him losing there, getting frustrated and angry than in one of the Masters. I'm still positive about next week. The only thing that really bothers me it's his serve, at the match once his 1st serve hit the net or goes out, 2nd serve doesn't exist and it's DF. He loses the confidence on his serve right away. Happened a lot yesterday, then frustration and all that comes along. Let's see. Sure PapaVerdasco will work that out, he was already doing it in DC. VAMOS!!!!
