I hope you have better luck with tournament thread titles than I did.
However, have you done anything with your signature? I clicked on the title to get into this thread and my equipment went down again like it had before. And when I went in and turned off the signatures I could use the thread. I reported the problem to Neely so you may be hearing from her.

Well I know one thing. I'm not coming near Tommy's Forum unless my signature is off because if I try to come in with the signatures on my equipment will go down fast! Poor Tommy he isn't playing well now and his Forum won't work well either :sad:

Except for the fact that I actually think all three of us must jinx Tommy since we are the ones that do most of the posting in here. Maybe we all should :tape:

Well he starts out with a Frenchman, but Monfils hasn't been playing well as of late. So maybe Tommy can get off to a good start in this Tournament :) He couldn't get off to any worse start than he did in his last Tournament so the only way he can go is up :yeah: And thank you Alexiana for posting the Draw :)

I watched the match in the 2nd and 3rd set. Tommy really started to play better in the 2nd set. From watching it seemed that his strategy was mostly hitting a bit higher with spin. He didn't seem to force the winners at all costs. It payed off for most of the rest of the match and he was in good position to win 6-3 or 6-4 in the third. There were some hard-fought games, one of them was maybe the key game for the match, at least a 10-minute service game of Tommy, the eigth game in the third set, and Tommy lost it. It involved pretty much everything. Then Tommy saved two match points in the next service game, but the third one was it finally for Monfils :sad:

Thanks for the service, Truc! :)
And yes, you are right to put the word 'highlights' entre guillemets (a little pun which I built in especially for you :hug: ), because I'm not sure that these are all highlights from Tommy's points of view :o

Truc
05-08-2006, 11:12 PM
You're welcome! I love the pun! :lol:
I didn't watch the match, but some points they show in the video are really nice to see (there often are spectacular points with Monfils, he's perfect for this kind of "highlights" videos!)

Poor Tommy, I didn't know before watching the video that he had made a df on the matchpoint!

16681
05-08-2006, 11:27 PM
Truc normally it is always nice to see and hear from you, but today :eek:
"Highlights" I don't think so! And a df on Match point :scared: I don't know what happened to Tommy? He won two titles and then the illness, the injuries, and now it is like he can't get his form back at all :ras:

Well I hate to say this since we are supposed to be in the land of denial, but to continue to try and play tennis--practice and Tournaments, etc. may be getting to be too much for Tommy's body :sad:

omg.. i really dislike kiwi for the wrong reasons..!! :rolleyes:
since the first time i watched a grand slam, kiwi ALWAYS had to play the match before the one i wanted to see (really ALWAYS)..
and he plays all those terrible 5-setters almost every match :eek:
so i really hate to see kiwi in the draws because then i know there will be a lot of long matches before the one i want to see :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :o

and i hate henman because he gets all the broadcast time of wimbledon!! so when wimbledon starts i could almost start praying that henman will be out in the 1st round!! :lol:

If Tommy doesn't win a Match to me there are no highlights so I didn't try to see it. My pityful equipment probably wouldn't have let me see it anyway.
