Do you think he'll be wearing the Arab outfit or riding a camel??!

Well done, Rafa!! [don't like to see Max lose, but he was tired no doubt]

So now for O Rochus -- have they played before? Probably not, right??


Apparently Rafa was playing golf in Dubai... was he wearing Arab garb too [like Alex C a few yrs ago]?

Go Rafy! :bounce: I want a Nadal/Lopez semi-final, and then one of them to take on Rogi. :devil: Hehe...wishful thinking 'eh?

I'm also great fan of Rafael... he is awesome, I wish him only the best and I hope he wins a lot and his fans will have a lot of fun watching him playing tennis :-)

Poor Nadal :sad: I guess the second set was pretty impressive though.

And what a surprise!:eek:Lopez through to the semi's! Well I hope he beats Ljubicic next and take on Rogi. :D

03-07-2004, 06:14 AM
:sad: awwwwwwwww, he lost!! but he did stretch his opponent to three sets! its better than lossing easily in two sets!
