Tim loves this tournament and he's been in the finals twice in the past, including last year (lost to Fed). He has a good draw again this year, but I'm not doing the 'prospective opponents' list again because it gets my hopes up and I feel a bit disappointed when Tim loses early :lol:

Instead we'll take it round per round:

1st round: Bye - Tim's not likely to lose here, but with him we never know :devil:

2nd round: Clement or Donald Young. Tim has a 2-0 record against Arnauld, but they haven't played each other since 2000. Tim and Young has never met before in an ATP event.

Goodluck Tim!

Looks like he's playing Clement. GO TIM!

Btw, Yonge, thanks for the heads up in that Facing Federer DVD thread in General Messages re: TSN - I had no idea that TSN was going to show it! I've never seen the documentary, so you might imagine how excited I am to see Tim's fun side :)

No prob. I think I'm gonna miss the documentary though, since I have a lecture at that time :( . I hope they show it again during Masters Cup Shanghai later this year.

Yeah, Mondays at 4, I have lecture, too. But I'll tape it. I can't NOT watch it - it sounds great! Besides,

(Gahh...lectures. Are you in university/college, too?)

Tim def. Clement 4-6 6-4 6-3. The second serve was a problem today but he pulled it off! :yeah:

Next: either Paul Goldstein or Jurgen Melzer.
Tim is 1-1 against Jurgen (lost in Miami last year in 3 sets, but we all know he was tired from Indian Wells at that time ;) ). Against Goldstein Tim is 1-0 (Tim won en route to his title in Washington D.C. 2 years ago).

....And yes thenman, I'm in university, too.


(ADD: It's Melzer in the 2nd round)

GO TIM!

Hey Yonge, I was just wondering how you knew it was Tim's second serve in particular that was the problem during that match? Was it on tv?

I wish it was on tv! Well actually it was - in Europe! Some of Tim's fans from there were sharing the happenings in the Scores & OOP Thread while I was following the live scores online. I think the match summary showed that he won only 40% of 2nd serve points.

Tim def. Melzer 7-6 6-4! :bounce:

Up next: Robredo
Tim is 3-0 against him, one of those wins came at Indian Wells in 2002 (Tim reached the final that year).

Go TIM!!!

Tim defeated Robredo 6-4 2-6 6-2!!! He was down a break in the first set and came back.

Next: Either Guillermo Canas or Taylor Dent. We all know that Canas is a tough one for Tim (H2H is 1-4, with Canas winning the last 4 meetings). Taylor and Tim have not played each other yet. It'd be nice to see two serve and volleyers facing each other.

GO TIM!!!

I dunno what happened to Dent, but Canas won after just 1 set. So there's a very very tough match waiting for Tim in the next round :help: :unsure:

Dent had some sort of food poisoning [?], which forced him to retire

I'm so happy that they showed the match, I was literally running home to catch it. But Tim lost and it was a close one, too :sad: .

Here's a summary of how his Indian Wells went:

Rd.1: Bye
Rd.2: def. Clement 4-6 6-4 6-3
Rd.3: def. Melzer 7-6 6-4
Rd.4: def. Robredo 6-4 2-6 6-2
QF: lost to Canas 6-7 5-7

Even though I wish he'd done better, I think this is a good thing for Miami. He lost in the 2nd round last year due mainly to his terrific performance in IW, and I think he'll do better this year.

Goodluck Tim! And don't give up on him, fans :) .
