Rafa is such a sweetheart! :D Now he will have 2 days off, right? The blisters will have time to heal. :D

Hmmm... I think he'll have one day off. Better that way. It might be raining on Monday.

All kidding aside, don't you think that the nickname Gasgay is lame?
Not as lame as the boy himself :shrug:
caroline is more pretty than Ivanonic :inlove::baby::hearts:
They're both very pretty :)
Adam will be devatated! :bigcry: :crying2:
I'm speechless. I had to go to Birmingham this morning and saw the score on my phone. Absolutely disgusting result :retard:
now Ivanonic will most likely be the new champion, but i prefer momo or the pretty young Caroline :sad:
No way Ivanovic wins it, she's playing crap.
Tauziat, Bartoli, Dechy, Pierce, Mauresmo, Loit, etc... are all ugly chicks... Only Cornet and Golovin are half decent (and Golovin can be thankfull to her Russian origins :o)
Agreed about Cornet and Golovin (even though you took it back :ras: ).





I'm in a bad mood :mad:

No, Birmingham was fine. And I was only there for a couple of hours.

So I see, I don't like what I'm reading about these blisters though.

Almagro is simply too good for Muzza at the moment. I hope Muzza can at least take a set.

Can you believe that they cut the tennis to show me some Italian people with umbrellas? Is a shitty weather in Italy and "due to badweather images from the race are not available"
Even the commentators are asking themselves why they cut RG for this crap! :mad:

Poor Betty! I hope she has a better weather!

It'll be a sad day if she wins it. I don't think she will though, she's not exactly looked impressive and her serve is very vulnerable. She's got a ridiculous draw though, almost Federer-esque.
Add some decent sized boops to Cornet and she'll look ok :o :p
She's good enough looking, it's her personality which is attractive :inlove:

Don't need too long there, get a decent curry, do your business and then piss off.

The blisters is just hysteria and nothing more.

Well Mucho as long as he serves well and uses that monstrous kicker he has, then he should be alright. He did the Berdych and put a finger to his mouth to shh the guys in the crowd.

As for Cornet, she seems to have a very good personality.

Mucho is standing too far behind the baseline, he could control this match a lot more if he was closer. He's letting Muzza back into it.

This actually his best result at RG for Mucho, then that's the same for Murray as well. Mucho should still win this.

this is the last blof of rafa:

May 30.- Hello everyone, here we are another day in Paris, waiting for dining out and come back soon to the hotel to prepare for the match of tomorrow. In these 'blogs' I have not yet spoken almost anything that has nothing to do with tennis. I always mention you as I prepare to go to the tournament, when I go out, etc. So today, I talk you of the restaurant where we go almost daily. It's a very little restaurant / pizzeria that is called simply 'Restaurant Napoletano'. Spectacular. The pizza is the best of Paris and also its pastas, what I eat always. Not because it is the same but by how well they make them. White pasta with shrimp and mushrooms. The same I cook myself at Wimbledon, what happens is that they do better.

This restaurant was showed me by one person of the ATP that is called Vittorio Selmi. Vitto is a gentleman who is being 30 years in tennis and who knows absolutely everything about it. Lately he is going through a bad moment and from here I take the opportunity also to send him a greeting and a very strong hug. Every day when we go there we remember him and talk about him. Vitto, cheer up!

Yesterday we went to the restaurant at nine, as almost every day. If I have to play early (first or second match), we go more or less at this hour and if I go later I usually do to reach about half past nine. Yesterday, whit the rain stop that we have by for about an hour and with all the post-match work, we went to the hotel at about the 7 and a half in the afternoon. Tomorrow morning we will do it again at 8 and a half.


I said you that when I go back to the hotel I am still working on what tennis is concerned. At get back Rafa Maymó, the physiotherapist who travels with me to all tournaments, gives me a necessary massage to recover well for the next day. Some of you will say, how good, a massage, not? Wrong. It is not that kind of massage that relaxes you. It is a sports massage which hurt because he squeezes and hurts.

Well I leave you because I am going to dinner. It turns to play the third consecutive match if everything goes well. I say this because the forecasts say that probably it rains in the afternoon. That is why they have asked me if I wanted to play second better than the third because if there is no risk of rain.

Greetings to everyone.

IF I UNDERSTAND GOOD HE SAY " waiting for dining out and come back soon to the hotel to prepare for the match of tomorrow." BUT NORMALY HE WILL PLAY SUNDAY AND NOT TOMORROW. WHAT S THAT?????

Well, the forensic in this case is clear. Overrates Seppi when he wins and overreacts when he loses. It's like people on MTF with Nalbandian, though not to that level.

They want his babies when he beats a top player, then want to hang him or call out retirement when he loses. The Nalbandwagonists are just extreme.

Yes, he can. He's GWH.

He handles Gonzo's serve pretty decently so far today... He's improved in that department too...

Some very interesting matches this morning. Ferrer should still get the job done vs Hewitt despite losing the set. Stepanek is annihilating Robredo, going to be difficult for anyone to beat if he is at his absolute best as we already saw with his play in Spring '07. Wawrinka justifying his seed which is good, A QF looks fairly likely now. Then there's Ginepri vs Serra, an American in R4 is looking very possible, I hope Serra can bring it back though.

Hmmm.... The tennis channel and the interactive are not showing Chatrier today (so far). Hopefully this is only for Sharapova's match. I bet they won't show Federer's match live so that NBC can show it delayed at 1pm. :mad: We'll see...



also, i'm proud to report to metis and andreea (i think they're the opera fans?) that i saw my first opera today! it was gilbert & sullivan's patience and i really loved it. hopefully i'll see a couple more this summer :dance:

Hmmmm.... I don't think I would call Gilbert and Sullivan opera :ras:, at least not in the classical sense. I guess it is a form of comic opera like operettas. I think they are only played in the UK and the USA but even there not in the big opera theatres.

In any case Gilbert and Sullivan are a lot of fun which is what matters in the end. :D

Too bad for Lucho, it was such a winnable match. Gonzo is a tough matchup for Stan when he uses controlled agressiveness. Now I just hope Gonzo does not lose lamely to Ginepri spraying balls from the Alpes to the Gulf of Bisgay.

The event at the end could be extremely boring, the most likely scenario looks to be that we will see the same semifinals as last year, and the same results from there on.
