I am just wondering that.... coz I hear some rumor here he will play China Open in Beijing this year.. but not confirmed yet.

I hope he can come again. Jiri has been to Shanghai for 3 years in line since 2002 TMC, and definitely he likes here, and we love him too. Jiri do have quite a lot fans in Shanghai, who come to watch him play every year, like me (Jiri is very nice to the fans :hug: ). Now Shanghai Open has been moved to Vietnam, and TMC instead again. So, if Jiri come to play in China this year, the only one will be China Open in Beijing, the city far from me, but I will take a train to go there watching tennis. Hope Jiri can come again :D I am waiting for him like last year, the year before last year, and the year before the year before last year.

Lenka sweetie, if you get some news regarding this in Czech, please let me know :worship:

Of course! :hug: if I will find out anything concerning China Open and Jiri, you will be the first to hear it! But I doubt, tennis isn't here very popular. :sad:

Thanks.. :hug: I think the full entry list should be out soon here, then I will know if he will come or not ;)

Hey, tennis isn't popular in Czech? :eek: You have many good and potential players, I think this sport should catch a lot attention in your country.

yeah i think we have great players ( not such good and so many like Spain ) but here are the most popular ... football, ice-hockey, formula 1 or motosports and then tennis, basketball and athletics.
Actually I love football and ice-hockey but tennis as well!!!
The only one sport channel I have is eurosport and they show only wta or grandslams! :mad:

Maybe when one of your players won a GS or big tourney some day, it will stir the tennis fire in your country. I also think Czech should have more tourneys to spread their tennis influence. Anyway, Czech has very good potential, only need a chance to stir it up.

Nope, i don't like to take photos with players :p only have his autography, and talked sth with him when he was practising, and yes, he is very nice :hug:

I think I will decide to take a photo with him if he goes to play China Open this year. After watching his live playing for 3 years in line, I should leave myself a souvenir for the great memory :)

Czech really deserves an ATP tourney. And I will be happy to see that happen too :yeah: actually it should have one much earlier, just based on how much the Czech tennis improve these years. Hope we can see it soon. :D

No, but hey, this pic is nice!! :yeah:
I don't think I ever see it :p, I am not a Gaudio fan, and even I saw it maybe I can't recognize the beside person is Czech Republic President. But thanks for the sharing :hug: If your president likes tennis, then at least you have some big one to support this sports in your country :yeah:
