Guille is seeded 2nd, so he'll face in the 1st round to Mikhail Youzhny.

Not a so simple task, but well.....I hope he can defeat him.

Sadly Misha is playing like shit atm...

what a draw :fiery: all my favs have a terrible first round

02-29-2004, 02:17 PM
Exactly what I'm thinking, Legolas! But Guille should be okay. Guille won all three times he met with Youzhny in 2003. There was even 6-0, 6-0 at one of their meeting.

And any of those previous matches was played on the surface where Dubai's tournament is played? :confused:

Twice on clay and once on hard (like Dubai). The last time they met was hard court in Cincinnati TMS 2003 which Guille won 6-2, 6-1. Guille should be all right...

vamos guille!

03-02-2004, 08:58 AM
good luck~~

03-02-2004, 12:04 PM
i'm sure he'll get very far in this tournament!:)

03-02-2004, 02:20 PM
OMG...I can't believe Guille lost. 6-4, 3-6 and 4-6. Sob...Sob...So did Nalbandian. Well, at least my other favorite player(Nadal) is still there.

03-02-2004, 03:48 PM
OMG i can t beleive that toooooooo. I don t know what s happen with Guille. Maybe because he change his coach. The first set was ok i think but in the 2° and 3° sets he loose all control. I hope he can relax for Indian wells and the magic come back.
It s a picture from Dubai

I cant believe he lost to his pigeon Youzhny :eek: on the flipside at least Misha is playing decently again :D

What a shame :sad: Then it looks like that to play Marseille and Dubai wasn't a too smart choice :confused:

But seeing the positive side, he'll have more time to train and get better for the hot weather of Indian Wells and Miami.

Indeed "always look on the bright side of life", although it's difficult at times such as these
