Very impressive from Andy!
Are you watching him now?
I saw that he was broken in the first game then now he's leading. I guess he can figure out this Juan after losing to Juan Martin Del Potro and Juan Monaco? (All Argentines :rolls:, and don't forget Nalbandian :tape: )

Good afternoon from Paris :wavey: Well not so much to say about that match really, apart from the fact it ended nice and quick before the wind killed us all, or the :rain: came back. I thought Nole played well in the 1st set, but he was always in control and I don't think Lapetti's injury made a difference to the eventual winner.

Never nice to see anyone injured and genuinely in pain; and that one was nasty. I am no fan of Lapentti as most of you know, but he tried to fight and he did his best and respect to him. And sounds harsh, but always nice to get a nice, easy win in the early rounds of a Grand Slam. The conditions were vile out there - so Nole will be glad to be through against a potentially tricky opponent with no real problems.

In other news - saw him practice again this morning and - yes - you've guessed it - am still :inlove: with Miljan :inlove: My train is at 6.00pm tomorrow night; so will attempt to go to the Courts for a few hours before I leave. Nole won't practice there tomorrow, but hope to see Janko. But if the OOP looks poor or the weather sucks, I'll go shopping tomorrow instead.

Oh and one more thing - if Nole doesn't stop with the damned DSOD - I will do something very painful to him :fiery:

Bye to all for now :wavey:

Agree with you. There were some drama, history between them and it made the match look great. But the match itself was not pretty that much as people say.
