Hi guys!

I heared that David was practising with Dent for an hour, this morning.
Unfortunatly, I missed it :sad:
I arrived too late.
After the practise, a lot of fan asked for his autograph, :)
and he did so to everybody. :D
According to the girl who got his autograph, he smelled good :angel:

Tomorrow, he will show up in the Yonex's festival with Hingis and many japanease players.
I will go to see him, but my digital camera got broken :bigcry: I'm sooooo sorry I don't think I can take his pics. :sad:

see you later. :wavey:

This is Sakura reporting from Tokyoooooooo♪

Wow, thanks-especially to the girl who got his autograph and got close enough to catch his "scent". Sakura, are you able to get your camera fixed? Are you able to borrow one from a friend or relative, or buy one of those disposable ones and take to the store and have the pics developed onto a CD for your computer?

Thanks for the information Sakura. I hope you have a really wonderful time at the tournament - and that David wins for you :) Any pictures that you or any of your friends take will, of course, be greatly appreciated!!

Sakura,thanks so much for the news :smooch:

I was wondering where he could be..if in Argentina or if he was already in Japan.
But It's good to know he is there and practising!!

Ohh and it is great to know that he smells good..all guys should smell good!! :angel:

I would think that the draw would be available by now, but this is weird to have a draw out that late. I hope there are no surprises with regards to player withdrawals and draw designations.

Me too. I hope that he gets a decent draw.

so the draw is out and David is seed No.2
http://www.atptennis.com/posting/2004/329/MDS.pdf
if David can make it to the semi-final, then he probably will meet Canas or Gambill or Nieminen...

sigmagirl91
10-03-2004, 11:29 AM
That's not a bad draw. Hope he takes advantage.

*Ljubica*

Yes - it looks OK - just hope he can stay healthy - that's the most important thing :) Wish this tournament was televised here but we get Lyon instead.

They used to televise this tournament and a whole lot of tournaments here, but they don't anymore. If Andre or Andy isn't playing it, then you can forget it.

Actually Lyon is a good tournament with Calleri and J-C Ferrero so I will enjoy watching what I can when I get home from work - just rather see David that's all!

I want to see him too. The only place I can see him is here, unfortunately.

I've seen the draw, and its not a terrible one. I really hope he doesnt play Nieminen again; he's already lost to him twice this year. He should do well here. :)

Good morning! its 7AM in local time.
And thanks for you all reply. :worship:

I went to see the Yonexs festival yesterday.
Yonex made him work so hard. :mad:
He played 8 games with 8 different fans, and helped yonexs new shoes promotion, and further played an exhibition (just 4 games) with japanese player, Motomura(he is No2 in Japan).
Yonex should pay him a lot!!! :devil:
But he kept smiling :) and was in the good moods, all the time.
veeeeeeery professional!!!
And you know it was the first time I actually saw him.
He was ........sooooooooooooooooo cute!!!!!!!! :hearts:
I was almost breathless!! :angel:

In fact I doubt if he is coming next year after such a heavy task. :sad:

The only good point was that he could play in the center court.(while other players were not able to practice in the court because of the rain)
Especially the exhibition match was excellent, as if it was a real game.(the result was 2-2)
I think this match was good practice for him. :)
In my opinion, he was not in the top condition, but getting better. :bounce:
He seemed to have good conversation with martina. (she was very nice)

And it is f**king raining today again :fiery:

See you later. :wavey:

I'll almost certainly be at work for all his matches - so Yahoo, MSN etc will be out for me :sad: I'll just have to follow the lovely live scoreboard, and hope some of you remember me sometimes on here, which seems to be the only "chat type" site I can access easily from my work computer.

sigmagirl91

10-05-2004, 12:11 PM
please do Jazz.. its hard to find anything... If i have the right one.. then its a really young boy 1985, and well it really seems to be a good change for david to win, and wel to get a little bit settled in the tournement

jazz_girl
10-05-2004, 12:15 PM
Well, this is him:
Singles Semifinalist: Surbiton, Joplin, Cordoba, Australia F2 Quarterfinalist: Beijing, Ho Chi Minh, Tasmania Doubles Finalist: Forest Hills(w/Berrer) Semifinalist: Denver(w/Boeker), Australia F2(w/Sela)
This year, he only played 3 ATP matches.

bovenbuuf
10-05-2004, 12:18 PM
ah so I did had the right boy. Well this sounds like it will be very easy for David.. but well guess we can never underestimate an opponent, he did made it to the main draw and survived the first round...

Don't you think this time David has a genuine opportunity to win a title ?
Oh I DO hope so, he deserves it so much and has had so bad luck this year...

VENGA DAVID !!!!!! :bigclap:

Well, don't forget Hewitt is in the draw, but I think you're right. He has a very nice opportunity.

Hi guys!
Well, the OOP for tomorrow is not out yet, but the live score says that he'll play tomorrow at the last turn.

sigmagirl91
10-05-2004, 02:48 PM
OK, I wonder what that means? Does that mean I have to wake up at some unreal hour to view this?

jazz_girl
10-05-2004, 02:50 PM
No, I think he'll play around 7 am, maybe 6 for you.

sigmagirl91
10-05-2004, 02:55 PM
OK. I guess I can get up with you guys tomorrow. You know I just love this, don't you?

10-05-2004, 02:56 PM

About Agustín, I agree. I'm soooo glad he won, and not just for David, but because of him. He's had a horrible season and he's starting all over again and with a new coach, he needed this win.

i watched some matches of this muller, good luxen tennis players in Shanghai Open this time. and i should say he could be a dangerous one, not really threat, but can stuns some big names sometime! so david should be careful to him!!

There definately wasn't one in the tie break Sigma. Don't know about the 6-5 game as I'm at work and it was really hard to follow. He did well to fight back, but he really shouldn't be having problems like this with players like this.

To me, he's still rather rusty, and this is the match he needed to get his confidence back. And the 6-5 game, in particular, was the one I was curious about. He did well to fight back from match game down to take it. Well done.

i guess it's still the problem he has not adapted playing against asian guys, coz asian players, they are always playing quite different styles from the euro or american ones. and LU is the first asian player david play against, you all know he had the same trouble in the first set, but finally won. so the same situation happen on Wang too. When he adapted, he can win Wang or other asian players easily. it's not about how well the asian ones play, but sometimes even the big names didn't adapt their tennis styles. i remember roddick also had the same trouble when he plays against LU in this year's wimbledon.

novanora
10-06-2004, 03:29 PM

the strength, because asian players are lacking of strength, not like the euro and american ones. so their tennis will be much slower and softer, but also less errors. would say much more defensive tennis, and some euro and american players will lost patience if they can't beat them fastly, make more errors, think that's the reason why david will lost the first set when facing the two asian players. Maybe he wants to win quickly, but can't achieve. sometimes, you will feel annoyed by asian players' tennis, they just defend, but not lost one point, and make you more and more irritated.

Hi, guys! :wavey:

I just saw David vs Wang.
It was a close match, David almost lost it. :mad:
I almost got my nervous breakdown.
Wang's tennis was excellent!!!
No miss shot and kept on going, and David finally had a miss shot after long rally.
When Wang got match point, I said to myself "Sayonara David" :sad:
But he never gave up! :bounce:
After he won the tiebreak, David dominated the match! :D
I think it is significant that he won this tough match!

Most of the spectators was on David's side ;) (especially girls! :angel: )
HIs outfit was same as RG (orange)

Tomorrow he will play against Muller.
