Time to start a topic for the first hard court event for Feña since Miami ;)

The last year Feña reached to 3rd round (lost with Melzer in 2 sets :( ) ... With a good draw this year he could do it better :cool:

Vamos Feña :bounce:

:sad: I still can't believe Fena lost-seems like we should be sizing up his next opponent....Yeah, his stats weren't good...Have to put it down to his first hardcourt match in quite awhile...I know he'll be back in form in Cincy.

And I'm not even going to hope for a good draw for him anymore-what would be the point??? He's never going to get a good draw again and I may as well get used to it.... :hysteric:

Well, Fena still rocks :rocker2: and I hope he quickly put this match behind him! :hug:

I can't believe this happened.

I knew Max would be tough, but I didn't even think for a minute that Max would beat our Fena. I really didn't think that he would have problems until Lleyton.

I'm sending a lot of :hug: to Fena too in Montreal. I feel so sad for him. This wasn't supposed to happen. :sad: He's been doing so well since Wimbledon.

08-08-2005, 09:49 PM
I'm so sad about the lost :bigcry: I watched the whole match on tv and in the first set he was playing really good but after Max won the set 7-5 in the TB Gonzo just couldn´t be the same Gonzo he was on the first set ... :sobbing:

I just want to send him a BIG :hug: and GOOD LUCK FOR CINCY !!!!! :smooch:

I've just finished to watch the match on tv. As Gonzo Fan said, he played good in the first set. At 5-5, he broke Max, made some great points so he was leading 6/5 and I thought that it would have been possible for him to win the set, but he unfortunately lost his serve and they played a tie-break but Max won easily the tie-break. Gonzo gave some points but Max played a solid match today, he made some good points. In the second set, I fell Gonzo a bit discouraged, a bit nervous and not really focused, and Max was still playing well, so I understand him.

As I said earlier, in a Masters-Serie, you don't have easy match or an easy draw. The players are prepared to play tough matches. Players have to be ready for the first match and don't have the time to wait one or two matches to enter in a tournament. Max is known as a tough player so I knew that the match would be difficult for Fernando. That's life... He'll play better in Cincy !!

Buena suerte por Cincy Fena, you are still a great player to watch :yeah:
Good luck for the doubles with Nico :bounce:

I was very upset with Gonzos loss today but I kept thinking about it and we should all be very supportive for him. I have learned that I shoulden't see a player less because of his ranking. I also think that we shouldent say about Gonzos future in the tournament. I guess we should go game by game. Well I wish you the best Gonzo! Try your best, that all we ask from you.

Yes, of course, we'll always support Fena. :)

I'm not a long long time fan, but I've watched Fena since 2002. I've watched him up, and watched him down, and no matter where he is in the rankings, I always adore him.

If I wanted someone that won every tournament, I would root for Roger.

But I like Fena for more than his on court accomplishments. I love his personality off court, and his fiery way on court (though I do wish he'd tone down the all power game on court...lol!). And speaking as a woman, he's darn cute, and that counts for a lot. ;)

He'll be fine, he'll do better in Cincy, hope he plays Pilot Pen (cuz I'm going and want to see him...lol!), and he'll be kicking it in for the US Open. And if not, whatever...I'll still love him!!! I've rooted for him through much worse.

Well can answer part of my own question.

He has to get to the SFs to defend them. :sad:

Geez I thought it was just Nico that I had to worry about here which is bad enough that he has to get to the finals to defend most of them.

:) Hola, Los Feñaticos! Finally some pix I took of Feña at TMS Montreal05! Here is my little report:

Saturday August 6, 2005
My sister stayed at court 8 to watch Fernando Gonzalez practise with Youzhny. Gonzo was looking good shirtless in black shorts and his black bandana. Feña seemed a bit frustrated with how he was hitting the ball. She took a few photos of Feña.

My sis recalls that she returned to the Nadal practice to see if he might be leaving. She was trying to decide whether to stay or to go back to Feña. … As the crowd was getting bigger she decided she would have a better chance to see Feña.

So she returned to the Gonzalez practice to try and catch him as he was leaving. This time a half a dozen Chilean fans gathered at the gate to greet him. … At one point, seeing Horacio de la Peña leave at the far end, they wondered whether they should go down to that end to wait for Feña but shortly afterwards, he came out.

Feña was very open with his fans not only posing for photos and signing autographs but also chatting a little. After he was done with everyone else, my sis handed him his recuerdo canadiense, wishing him Buena suerte. He seemed genuinely touched. He said Gracias and something else in Spanish that she didn’t quite catch!

Feña practising shirtless and in cool bandana and posing for fans:
