Looks like a very high standard of tennis from the two of them.

Surface? Indoor Hard I assume?

indoor hard.

looks a reasonable paced court.

Very competitive match but also a few light moments between them, smiling and a bit of banter. But they've played some amazing points that have had them both scrambling all over the place.

Their shotmaking is very serious but their attitudes seem very lighthearted.

...and Rafa changes his shirt. :banana: Love the way Roger pointed at Rafa, as if to tell the cameraman, "You should be filming THAT." :lol:

Heheh. It sure looked like that!

deliveryman
11-21-2006, 09:38 AM
Roger was very good at the net today. He seemed like he wanted to end points very quickly. Perhaps a little tired.

Off-topic, but I could do without their Sharapova promos. :o


Yeah, what's that all about? The commentators keep mentioning her name

In the interview, both of them are doing good job making fans entertaining.

scoobs

Ah well, that seems to be that.

No more from them until January.

I know what you mean! :haha:
And for me it's an hour earlier...I set my alarm and then turned it off.
I woke up anyway about half way through the second set.

Good match!

I know that one doesn't count for anything but...3 in a row to Roger now, Rafa...:eek:

I don't think they were that serious about this match...
Both of them smiling quite often - I never see them doing that during a serious match. So we should not put too much weight on the result, IMHO.

Oh I know. I'm not giving it any weight. But equally I believe that they both played to win even if they weren't particularly bothered about losing.

Yeah, you may well be right there.
Rogi appeared a lot more relaxed than Rafa in his interview - Rafa looked a bit uneasy about the situation. Very cute, though!

Yeah, Rafa's cutesy-cutesiness came through very well, lol.
Got the impression Rogi would agree on that too. :angel: :devil:

it's because of his english, isn't it?

scoobs

Well, the interviewer was being really awkward/artless with her questions. "Are you guys friends?" :tape: :lol:

I like the way they each answered the "What do you think of the other guy?" question - Roger was very generous, and Rafa I think was a bit more candid about the whole being-#1-and-#2-but-still-friendly business.

It was great because they were both actually talking to each other, except through the interviewer.

Maybe they should sort it out with an exhibition pillow-fight :devil: :angel:

I think so, most definitely. It must be pretty hard to have to speak out to a huge crowd in a foreign language you don't really feel comfortable with, so all kudos to Rafa for managing the way he did! :worship:

Oh yes, I thought it was pretty embarrassing for the both of them!
They handled it in a very gracious way, though.

Please understand Asian (Korean culture); the term "friend" in Korea is more serious and close relationship than we (Westerners) think. That's why she asked in that way.

No kidding, I didn't know that. Thanks for explaining! :wavey:

Thanks for the explanation J'torian. I thought she might be more used to interviewing pop stars because the questions sounded simplistic to these Western ears.

I agree. Nothing is ever casual between these two. Fed did acknowledge Rafa is his chief rival without using the one dimensional quote.

Just an exo, they both got paid well, and they put on a good show for the fans both in Korea and those crazy enough, like me, to get up at the crack of dawn to watch them play.

Haven't seen it, I'll take your word for it. :)
