Yes, good luck to Fernando in Madrid! :hatoff: He made the quarterfinals at Vienna and he could get good results in Madrid too! Fingers crossed for Fena to get seeded!

NicoFan
10-14-2005, 04:24 PM
Gasquet is out too - but I think its top 16 - so a couple more would have to pull out for him to be seeded.

enqvistfan
10-14-2005, 04:42 PM
Hewitt is also out
Vamos Fernando, you can do it in Madrid !!!

Fergie
10-14-2005, 04:58 PM
A lot of players out! :eek:

Feña needs a good draw here! :D

olimpo
10-14-2005, 06:27 PM
Fernando is ranked 20 this week and therefore he's seeded if at least 4 players higher ranked than him pull out and with Hewitt it’s already the 5th :D

Good luck for Madrid, Fernando! :kiss:

Fernando will play the doubles with N.Davydenko in Madrid. It will be the first time. Apparently, with Nico, they didn't enter directly in the main draw if I well understood.

Fergie
10-15-2005, 12:32 PM
Why not with Massu? :eek: ... They have a good ranking in doubles!

olimpo
10-15-2005, 01:26 PM
Why not with Massu? :eek: ... They have a good ranking in doubles!

Like Val posted their doubles entry ranking was not good enough to get a direct entry into Madrid. They are ranked 16 in the doubles race but this does not count for the entry into a tournament. And because Nico's down in the singles rankings they are unable to get one of the singles entry spots in such a strong field like Madrid.

I second your prayers Felipe ;) I want him to make it to Shanghai so badly but it will be very tough especially when he always gets bad draws :rolleyes:

The draw will be made Sunday at noon Madrid time.

The double draw is available :
http://www.tennis-masters-madrid.com/draws/16/MDD.pdf

Gonzalez/Davydenko vs Black/Ullyett (2)
Very lucky :lol: in this first round, against the seed number 2
I hope Fernando will be luckier in his first round. The draw will be available very soon. I'm nervous !!

PS : I have a documentary about Chile on TV :)

FelipeMIA89
10-16-2005, 12:22 PM
well the singles draw is up, i would say its pretty tough too. :( His second round is eigther Paul Henri Matheiu or Fenando Verdasco. Then third round is most likely Guillermo Coria. Quaterfinals might be Ivan Ljubicic. Well ummm, the draw is not good again for the 1,000,000,000 time I think. I hope GONZO can at least Verdasco after his recent loss in New Haven. Best of luck GONZO!!

You are right to be positive :yeah:
He seems to be in a good shape, even Horacio said he was in a good shape, so it's possible !! Mathieu is not at his best, so if he faces him, I think he can pass. Regarding Verdasco, he's an interesting player, but he will be in front of his audience, so he can be very motivated !! Don't know when Fernando will play, maybe tuesday or wednesday. Before, the double match will be a good practrice.

RogiFan88
10-16-2005, 08:58 PM
Vamos, Fena!

No Rogi, so I'm not as interested in this great TMS... but it w be nice if Fena can have a good run here, if not go all the way!

[so many players I do NOT want to win this title... ]

Hey, this is where I first SAW Fena at a tournament, altho it was a nano-second's worth as his Chileno fans enthusiastically pushed me out of his way... ;)

Fergie
10-16-2005, 11:26 PM
I want to see Feña vs Verdasco in 2nd round! :angel:

Sparko1030
10-17-2005, 02:59 AM
Not the draw I'd hope for but of course Fernando can handle it. I agree with the postitive posters lol! Fena played well last week and there is every reason to believe he will be even better this week!

10-17-2005, 10:38 AM
Just feel mad about this draw. :yawn: my Feña and my Paulo are just too close in the draw. :banghead: But I'd rather Feña to face Paulo than Verdasco.Paulo is not that tough for him and I probably could see Paulo's match once more. :sobbing: I can't bear it.Talk other rounds when he beat Paulo. :)

Sorry, I'll be off the topic. I thought of you Radical :lol: I know someone who has been to the Stockholm Open last week, she doesn't like the French players, but she met Paulo and she told me that he has been very nice to her, cause she asked him where Thomas E. was practricing.. Well, he and his coach have been nice to her, she was surprised. And, I may have the match Paulo/Verdasco tonight on tv, cause it will start at 8.00 pm. I'll think of you :)

enqvistfan
10-17-2005, 07:30 PM
Tomorrow evening, the last match of the day :

Fernando GONZALEZ (CHI) vs Fernando VERDASCO (ESP)
Sorry Radical :(

French commentators are sad, as you can imagine.

Congrats to Verdasco who played well, hope he won't play well tomorrow :lol:

YES, I'll have the match on tv !!!! :woohoo:

HEAD TO HEAD
1-1

The last meeting was in New Haven, this year and Verdasco won, it was a tough match

The commentators have just given the schedule for tomorrow. I won't have Fernando's match, cause I'll have JCF instead, I can't believe it :banghead: :banghead: :smash:, it's because of the Champions League !!! I hate football sometimes !!

I was sure that I'll have the wrong match :lol: I'm so lucky sometimes !!

Anyway, I'll be with Fernando behind my computer !!! Vamos Fernando, you can do it !!!

Lol I think of you when talk about Thomas. ;) Since she doesn't like French players,do you know why did she ask him about the place that Thomas was? :aplot: Also I heard no one wants to take a pic with him in Madrid,poor Paulo. :sad:
I had to do the annoying power point so just watched a bit and recorded the match.It was 2.00am when the match started in my country and I was falling asleep before. :yawn: Thank god I suddenly woke up and just missed a bit of his training session but I still hate that. :banghead: His looks rocks! :drool: But his game was :tears: ,Verdasco's serve was so great,so his return was always too short or powerless,the Spaniard hit so fast and well and sometimes he can't catch up with his rhythm, :sobbing: he seemed not had many strength to hit strokes,oh why is he that thin? :sad: But the nice thing is he was so calm and concentrated even though he made one easy smash error and gave Verdasco 3 bps.I thought he could have been bad-tempered Feña! :p Feña should be careful of Verdasco.Hit more aces and be patient to beat him.Hope he will take revenge for Paulo loss. :rocker2:
Btw I hope Feña doesn't mind I talk about Paulo too much here when he sees this thread. :rolls::crazy::drink:

I like both Fernandos but tomorrow I want Fena to beat Fer [Fer DID win today, after all -- one of the few Spaniards who did after Feli played a not so good match vs. a ho hum Seb to lose it].

I think WE get Moya/Volandri [Vamos, Charly! I'm not a fan of Pippo at all.] so Fena HAS to win or I won't see him at all this week!! I wish we could see Juanqui too -- I am worried he won't make R2... too bad he just missed being seeded... he s have won Vienna... so sad for him...

VAMOS, OSITO!!!!!

GONZO just had an interview about the match against Verdasco. This is what he said: "It was a difficult match, its hard to play in Madrid because the ball moves a lot and the player I played against is from here, he was with his people, so it was a little bit harder. But I'm happy because I won and was able to surpass in the hard moments". About the third set he said " I missed a break point to be 3-1, it was a ball that would of cost me a lot and then I won a spectacular point running everywhere. It was very good for me to win this match". About the upcoming matches he said " I'm ok, yes I played very well in Vienna, I had bad luck to compete with a player who was playing better than me in the moment, but I'm doing the things as planned.

Feña will play against Coria in 3rd

I watched the second set during my lunch break, and I have to say that Coria played very BAD !!! So, if he plays like he played today, Fernando will win easier than expected. But, Coria, can play better tomorrow. But, we can be confident and the commentators also said that he'll have to play better !!

Fergie
10-19-2005, 01:29 PM
Coria is playing very bad since the Us Open, serving like Dementieva :lol:

Feña will win tomorrow ;)

GONZO WON!!!! He beat Coria 7-5 6-3 !! At the beggining of the match GONZO was very much erratic. As the game progressed he began to get more confidence and play better. Gonzo really played good as the match progressed. Coria was going to serve for the first set but GONZO denied it with a 0-40!! Then GONZO won his serve and then broke. U can bear Ljubicic!! VAMOS!!!

Congrats Fernando :yeah:
This time, the match has been broadcasted here. I didn't think that Fernando would have had so much problems to win this first set. I was a bit afraid at 4-4, and 0-40 for Coria on Gonzo's serve. He lost his serve but then rebroke Coria, and won the set. He made a lot of faults in this first set. Then, the second set was easier, and Coria served very bad, we expected that :)
I'm very glad for Fernando tonight, and I hope he'll take his revenge on Ljubicic. I'm surprised by him cause he seems to be in a very good shape, apparently, he's not tired anymore or it's maybe because he's in full confidence. Well, I hope that Fernando now knows how to beat him. I think it's possible. The match is the second match of the day I think. VAMOS FERNANDO, TU ERES EL MEJOR :bounce:

Wild :drool: Feña won against him first time,wow very glad about that! :aparty::hearts::banana:
I think he changed his skill after the first set. ;) In the 2nd set he didn't hit too rush all the time and played more slices.Good change! :yeah: And everyone knows he would win,but he played quite riskily,and netted at his break points, :o otherwise Feña might have broken him twice again. :aplot:

ps.They didn't broadcast his match against Verdasco,ha! :rolleyes: This match is much better than Juan vs Max,they should know. :yawn:

Well Played Fena! He played a magnificent match, got better and better and cut down on the errors after starting tentatively. Had many errors but not to many over all, considering that he plays fearlessly he is bound to make errors. By the end of the match ratios of unforced to winners was good. His serve was great in the last set. Now Fena you must beat Ljubicic. Vamos Fernando!!

Thank you for posting all his nicknames. From all his nick names I like these 2, "Bombardero de la Reina" and "Mano de Piedra". They are so evocative of his style of play. He was really rock solid in the second set against Coria. Now I want the same hand of stone( mano de piedra) to crush ljubicic. Vamos Fernando.

Still I was in touch with Feña's results so I knew how was he playing and I'm proud of his results here in Madrid it's sad he lost again to Ivan but still a good result at least Ivan got nervous out there ;)
Feńa you're my guru! Keep up the good form so hopefully you'll play in Shanghai :D Vamos!!

Bad Luck to Feña but it was a great match. Ivan looked totally shattered - and maybe Feña could have taken advantage of that more than he did by making him move around the court more - but it was still a good effort from both players.

Fernando comments on the match. From latercera.cl:

Comply in spite of the defeat before the croatian Ivan Ljubicic the national tennis player was shown Fernando González, who he remained elliminado in the QFs of the Masters Series of Madrid.


Gonzalez indicated after the match felt in agreement with his performance in the tournament, in spite of making some mistakes that finished passing him the account.


"The truth is that I felt comfortable in the court. It saw me with possibilities by the tennis that I have been playing. I go with bitterness because I lost due to some errors that cost me expensive and with the sensation that could have done something more", indicated the racquet number one of Chile.


Now the national player will concentrate on his next challenge, the Basel Open, where he expects to carry out a good presentation with the objective to fight one of the quotas for the Masters of the eight better than the season.


"I go to Basil the next week. They remain two tournaments to finish the year and I expect that can improve my action in the next weeks", finalized.

I just watched most of Fena's match and he WAS playing fairly well. In fact, often when he was down 15-40 or so, he served aces [a la Rogi] to get him out of trouble! He hit some amazing shots, incl my fave bh-dtl shots! It's a shame he couldn't convert on those bps [another thing that Rogi has had probs w lately]! Ivan must have fooled him a little by losing the 1st set then waking up to win the match. No, Fena s have finished it off in straights. A real shame. Some of Ivan's shots esp in the 3rd set were simply too good tho...

So Fena goes to Rogi's tournament... I shall cheer him on once again! After all, he has made the F before [only to lose to Nalby... another shame.].

Sorry i arrive late, but I've just finished to watch the match, and what a match !!!! Amazing match. We can see that in tennis, a match can turn in favour of the other player. I was almost sure that when Fernando was leading 2/0 in the second, he was going to win !! Fernando played well, in fact, both played very well, and the match was very pleasant to watch. Next time, Fernando will face Ljubicic, he'll win, he was so close today !! I have to admit that I have never paid attention to Ljubicic but he impressed me, I wish him good luck for the rest of the tournament. Both played a great level. Fernando can do better in Basel next week !!! Good luck Fernando !! We are proud of you !!!

I just watched it on the re-play on The Tennis Channel.

Fernando looked excellent. Ljubicic was just a little better (unfortunately).

He looked so sad and disappointed at the end though...it made me feel bad. And Horacio looked so sad too.

Feña will have 295 points after Madrid.

The race is fairly straightforward--for Slams and Master Series events, just add whatever points the player makes in that week's tournament to his total from the week before.

Race points per round are shown on the ATP tournament summary page, e.g., http://www.atptennis.com/en/tournaments/profile/1536.asp.
And weekly race standing on the ATP Race page: http://www.atptennis.com/en/players/championsrace/.

Thank you Rogie, but how can we find the number of the points given in each tournament ?

I think if he's not qualified, he'll be substitute, if some withdraw.

That's is clear that he'll have to do good results in the last tournaments. In Paris, we'll cheer him :woohoo:

I know I'm late with this-I was gone last week but I still have to congratulate Fena on how he did in Madrid. Sounds like he was very dissapointed with his loss to Ivan-for many reasons I'm sure. But he made the quaterfinals for the second time in a row and he beat Coria! He wouldn't be a where he is now if he didn't want more... Still just want to say I'm proud of Fena!!! :rocker:

It's a real pain and I wish the ATP w incl the points per ROUND for EACH tourney but you have to go to the ATP site, go to tournaments in drop-down menu and select the tournament, one by one and you will see the points breakdown per round on the R.

I just try to write down these pts for each tourney in my printed out sheets of tournament calendar at the beginning of the year so I don't have to check every week... such a nuisance.
