Paulo has commited to:

Metz
Stockholm
Madrid
Lyon
Paris

And before that, he has to enjoy his favourite surface one last time, of course. :o He will play Bucharest and Palermo.

Allez! :bounce:

BTW, does anyone know why he is playing so many claycourt tournaments? He is quite good indoors as well, isn't he? :confused: It would help his game to have more practice on fast surfaces.

Maybe he just can't get enough of the clay. :lol:

Good luck!

delsa
09-14-2005, 06:19 PM
Well, he'll play Serra who defeated (2)F Volandri (ITA) 16 64 63 in quarterfinal. PHM has a good opportunity to go further there if he doesn't waste his chance because of some mental thing *worries* (but AFA i know Serra isn't one of his friends like Clément was in Montréal for ex and he didn't have that much of a problem dealing with the situation in that match even if he stupidly lost a set back then (but Arnaud played well too)...). So seize it!

And you're right, maybe i jinxed him. :taped:

Paulo :smash:

Again a catastrophic performance when you had a big chance to reach the semis! Again because of head problems! I hope you're happy for Serra now so that there will be at least one reason to be happy today! :fiery:

Want to wish the best luck for Paulo against my countryman (sorry delsa, I again support against my country...). Their last DC meeting is still in my mind: Andreev just playing his own game and Paulo lying around in clay... Indoors... Now there is another surface, more French fans, less Russians around. Paulo who had a stupid lose several days ago and who I hope fed up to lose to russians... Andreev who's just won a tournament and not going to lose in the first round of the next one (but maybe he's tired?..)... Ahhh wish I were there and saw it by my own eyes! Another battle of two charakters... Don't know, don't know... but I'd bet on Paulo. Allez!

He won't ever have the public on his side. All hispanics. ;)

Non. Fernando Verdasco a gagné.


PHM looked resigned. He wasn't even angry at himself it seems. I don't like that.

The 2nd set was lost by Verdasco. Our Paulo didn't win it even if he played better than in the 1st set. Despite not being the best player on the court today, he still handed the breaks to Verdasco though (like 2 of them were to love, due to a serie of DFs or very bad UEs etc...).
It would have been less frustrating if Verdasco had won them during his many times of momentum.

I'll have to scream like crazy in Paris and the others better do that too, i'll make their ears bleed anyway. He must get back to believing in himself.

I'm very concerned about him. I'll go cry a bit.

I'll go for the quallies and the 2 first days for sure. I'll try to go on Wednesday as well but i didn't take care of it so i hope i'll still be able to get tickets.

You want us to meet? That would be great. I will come with some friends for the quallies and 2 first days but they won't be able to come on Wednesday since they get back to school the day after and everything and we hadn't planed that at first anyway so...

That'd be cool to meet actually, if you come on wednesday.
I was thinking of maybe going on Tuesday too, but i'll have to check with Detheo first (and see if we can get tickets :/).

Even tho' he got us scared/frustrated at times (gosh i thought he was going to kinda give up after he got a bit upset by the umpire's decision that one of shot was out...) , he still made a good match :) Thank you Paulo and keep up the good work! :worship: (ahem par contre j'ai hyper mal aux mains maintenant à force d'applaudir comme une forcenée :tape: )

And it's not like i was paying attention to the pain anyway, i was so focused on Paulo's game... (apart from the times i was laughing because of the hard-core French players fans' songs :p)

Ohh well that's great that he's been so nice and smily and everything. You're one lucky girl (i'm just a lil... a tiny bit jealous :o ). When was the autograph session?

Oh that reminds me of yesterday...
Everytime the cameramen showed pretty (or not, actually) blondes or whatever during the breaks, we were like "Ooooh maybe that's Quiterie!" and making all sorts of comments.
(I have absolutely no idea what she looks like :/)
The couple behind us were looking at me as if i had escaped from an asylum for Paulo fans, by the end of the match, because of my stupid comments and because i was so into it. Thank god, i'll never see them again! :D

5-4 for Paulo!
Actually from what i understand they didn't even show it. :rolleyes:
They even replayed the end of the Davydenko vs. Tursunov match during the warming up using the last minutes reserved for tennis and then switched to female volleyball CL..."It's finished for tennis today on Sport +. See you tomorrow with bla bla bla. PHM's match will be showed at 20.45 on Canal + SPORTS [which of course we don't have...]" :o
That's what i've been told anyway.
I don't know if i want to see that "disaster" but it will be replayed at 1.00 AM on FR2 like yesterday... :rolleyes:

Now let's be positive. :)
I'm not devastated by this loss. No, really! I'm not lying. That's ok.

Because i don't know if you feel the same but i think Paulo, despite some of his recent results, is on the right track. I think he's made the first steps toward rebecoming the player he was by seeing his problems in the face, and be forced to admit everything etc...
-Then, i think Tulasne is a good coach for him right now. ;)
Besides, 2005 was the first season of his career when he didn't suffer from an injury! :banana:
-He broke the curse of Bercy (losing 5 times in awful (no)matches beating two better ranked players in matches where he fought. :yeah:
-He doesn't seem to care about all the mean untolerant things people say about him now. I think almost each time he's criticized wrongly (because for the most part the critics are just lucid and realistic, don't want to see him fail or anything but he deserves what they say :mad: ) etc...now, he reacts making a good result (no? :unsure: ...at least a few times...).

So, rest, work on all you've noticed this year was to be changed (A LOT...), miss tennis and come back hypermotivated in 2006 Paulo! :hug:

In the meantime we'll ruin ourself, to jinx all/who we can, make vodoo, lit candles, pray or whatever for you to have good draws next year...:unsure: :lol:

:secret: And actually he just wanted to be at his sister's wedding, that was his "injury" for you...


Of course i'm Kid-ding... ;) (It was reported he was dejected but tried a faked smile when saying that...)
