Jazz, I think it's needless from me to tell you to have fun, you'll do it anyway.
But don't forget to accomplish your mission. That is cheering sooooo loud for all of us here! :p I don't even know why I tell you not to forget, I know you won't... ;)

And Jazz - you know what I would like you to do if you get the chance ;)

Quotes from today's match:
"Siempre pensé que iba a ganarle, sabía lo que debía hacer adentro de la cancha y confiaba mucho en mi tenis. Incluso después de perder el primer parcial, lo primero que se me vino a la cabeza es que iba a ganar el partido en cuatro sets, no pensaba otra cosa"
"I always thought I was gonna beat him, I knew what I had to do in court and I trusted a lot in my tennis. Even after losing the first set, the first thing that came to my mind was that I was gonna win the match in 4 sets, I wasn't thinking in anything else"
"Novak me sorprendió al principio, pero después pude controlar su juego sin problemas"
"Novak surprised me at first, but after I was able to contro his game with no problems"
"Terminé muy bien en lo físico, no estoy cansado. Si Mancini decide utilizarme en el dobles no tendrá problemas para jugar"
"I ended the match very well phisically, I'm not tired. If Mancini decides to use me in the doubles tomorrow I wouldn't have any problems to play"

I am very happy for David. Before the match I admit that I was a little worried about him because Novak can play on clay and David didn't play on clay for so long and just recover from the illness.
I hope the Argentina team will win 5-0. It is about time to kick the Aussie especially Hewitt in their home.

Vamos the Argentina DC team. Bring it on.

Coria an Nalbandian touched by the crowd's support

David Nalbandian, 10° in the world, the one that gave the first point to Argentina in the Davis Cup against Czech Republic, pointed that "the people answer when it was the right moment, because when I needed it they supported me with their cheers".

The unquillense said that his performance went growing as the match went by and that "in no moment" he felt he could lose the encounter. Even with the question about what he felt when he lost the first set, very quickly, Nalbandian, with a smile on his face said that he thought he was gonna win in four sets, just like it happened.

The victory result in 4 sets by Nalbandian against Jiri Novak was 4-6 6-2 6-3 6-4 in almost 3 hours. The Argentine said that he went to play "kind of in a hurry". "The first 3 or 4 games Novak played them very well. He was precise, fast", indicated.

Nalbandian confessed that he follow the exact tactic that Mancini and his trainer Infantino told him. And that "he(Novak) got tired as the games went on. I noticed it at the middle of the third set. And then I defently knew I was gonna win"

The, when he talked about the public's cheer, Nalbandian pointed that "they were quite nice for a Davis Cup. They took their time to start cheering. I think that when I gave some things from the court they started firing up", said the cordobes, who assured to be very well physically for tomorrow's match.

You have seen him live again? Davis Cup has a very different atmosphere and that's good.

Was there plenty of noise? Well you need to drink more water then don't you. :p

I am not sure if he'll play then again they could always use Canas or Calleri in the singles.

jazz_girl
03-05-2005, 02:33 AM
There was some noise, a lot of chanting and cheers, but I guess David is right, it wasn't as noisy as it can be, and in the fourth set, he made a lot of gestures asking us to be louder :lol: But till that point a lot of people even applauded Novak's winners :lol:
The Coria's match was different, it was kind of dull and Guillermo knew that was gonna happen and the crowd kept asking him to do "magic". But he won and everyone was happy about it, except Berdych who was in a terrible mood.
I know it wasn't David's best match, but he made some very good points, always used his head and run every singles ball. Novak tried several drop shots, that looked impossible to reach and David turned them to winners, and it was very remarkable, especially for the temperature. In the last set, Novak started making double foults and very stupid UE, and I think that's all David's credit cause he was constantly returning everything and making Novak run, and he couldn't take it anymore. He tried to make every point shorter and shorter, and he ended up having a lot of UE. David even served for match (I was terrified about it) and he did it with a lot of confidence, which made me happy :)

Action Jackson

Novak is not a rubbish player, but I had faith in David. For a guy who is on his worst surface he happens to be very competent on it and I am happy that the locals woke up a bit to give it some atmosphere.

Yes, David serving for matches is almost like waiting for the Gaston choke, you know one isn't far away, but all the better when it happens to go his way.

03-05-2005, 02:59 AM
I know Novak is not a bad player at all, I think the crowd knew that too. Only the journalists seem to not know that and be surprised that he "took" a set off of David :rolleyes:
Anyway, I just read an interview with Berdych and he was mad with the crowd cause they made him lose focus and with Coria :rolleyes:

I am waiting for more interviews on the DC site.

Yes, I know what journalists are like and some fans, my signature says it all really. Not on this one anyway as I have some updating to do on the ATP game.

Berdych, well it's welcome to the big time. He could have been playing in Brazil and it's up to him to handle the situation and the didn't. Well it can easily happen getting mad with Coria, but if he didn't do anything too much, then that's just an excuse for his poor performance.

jazz_girl
03-05-2005, 03:09 AM
I have to come in Coria's defence, he wasn't that bad at all. The crowd wasn't that bad at all, even the players asked them to be louder!!! And Novak said they were nice, so it was an excuse. Especially because Coria didn't play at his best at all, and all he did was to play smart with Berdych's many errors.

ATPTOUR
03-05-2005, 03:15 AM
I am not bagging weasel, as long as he behaved himself then there isn't a problem and he seemed to so, as I said it's an excuse to justify Berdych's defeat.

Novak and Hrbaty love Argentina and Coria does that to all his opponents that's how he plays.

The cadence of Willy's accent is faster than David's, in my opinion. Not that I make my living analyzing accents and stuff, but having a linguistics class a long time ago makes you aware of those things.

That is interesting. I like languages and accents and stuff. When I hear somebody speaking english I always try to figure out where he comes from (what country for a non native speaker or what part of England for an englishman). I am not too bad if I may say so.

I was too, but George does having an interesting point.
It's not unlike the US, where you have differences in tone with Andy Roddick's speech and, hell for the sake of variety, Robby Ginepri's. Robby speaks slower than Andy in the same way that David speaks slower than Willy-regionality (ok, is that a word?). Andy is from the Midwest, while Robby is from the South.

Personally - no I don't think so Connie. My Mother came to England as a teenager and lived here until the day she died - but although her English was perfect in terms of grammar and use of words etc - she still definately had an accent. Funny thing is - sometimes other English people think I have an accent too, because I obviously learnt to speak from her before I went to school!!

The kids I teach now are a huge challenge-and they're native speakers.
Well, I tried to teach her English several times, she understands it at first, but the next day she forgets all about it! I can't do magic. She has to sit in the chair and read everything she learnt to memorize it, otherwise, she'll never understand anything...

Poor thing. Maybe her memory is not that good. Some people have to have repetition in order to retain stuff. What year is your sister in school?

but just 1 other language?

We had a choice between Spanish and French. Many other schools had more choices, but in ours, it was Spanish or French.

I wish we had more choices too, but Spanish and French are closer to English than many other languages, so I guess that's why the admins at our school chose those them.

Fourth year, she should have graduated already. She repeated 1st year and now the 4th. She's very smart, but she's way too lazy!!!!So now, she'll go to another school and will try to do 2 years in one and see if she can finally graduate...

Oh, my goodness....bad French....baaaad French.

That was the idea - it was a "comedy" song - a huge hit over here a good while back. We call that way of speaking "franglais" - kind of means a mixture of French and English with an appaling English accent :) Trouble is now I can't stop singing the damn song!!

yes because German is close to Dutch we had to learn that too.. French I still don't know. And then of course we had also that some students could choose Greek and Latin..But I think its also now obliged to take an exam in English though..

I remember seeing him sing that song.....and it was soooo bad....but apparently Bill Wyman now prefers to hunt for buried treasures on his country estate to singing on the world's biggest stage.....

Ok....that's cool. To her credit, English is a hard language to learn. Even native speakers can't get it right.
