Thanks for posting all that information Chiudi-fan :D I think I would have rather had Kristof start off singles by playing someone else? But the draw is the draw so we will just have to see how it goes!

Kristof :hug:

Robin Soderling is too powerful for Kristof I am afraid :sobbing:

Good luck to doubles :hug:

01-01-2007, 07:38 PM
Yeah, damn score :(

He'll play his doubles tomorrow, after my Chiudi's first round singles match.

Court 3 from 3:15 PM
M. Chiudinelli - T. Cakl
Not before 7:00 PM
C. Rochus/K. Vliegen - N. Almagro/A. Martin

Hopefully it will go better in doubles :)

01-01-2007, 07:50 PM
Yes I knew I didn't want Kristof to start out with Soderling :bigcry: The score wasn't even close 6-3 and 6-3 :sad: All we can do now is hope for better luck in the Doubles. But this was definitely not the way I wanted Kistof's year to start :ras:

No fan likes to see their player starting a season like this, sadly there will always have to be players who lose first match in tennis. He definitely had bad luck with draw, but the score definitely isn't good. Hopefully he can win some matches in doubles, with Christophe. So he can get used to playing matches again :)

01-02-2007, 07:50 PM
C Rochus/Vliegen d Almagro/A Martin 63 67(3) 10-8 :yeah: this makes the lost singles match feel a lil bit better :)

01-03-2007, 01:07 AM
finally :yippee:

dear guy can go on his "warm-up" jobs :p

01-03-2007, 02:46 AM
Yes I think Kristof and Chris can be a very good Doubles team :) But I must confess I don't care that much for Doubles play :sad:

01-03-2007, 08:56 AM
I like to watch doubles more than singles, but for my faves I of course want them to do better in singles. But when someone is out in singles already, I think we should be happy he get at least some "warm-up" (as Tosee called it) by playing doubles. Try to see it a bit possitive Mae :) :hug:

01-03-2007, 03:46 PM
Well I agree with the idea of a "warm-up". It is better than being completely out of a Tournament. Oh sorry Chiudi lost :sad:

01-03-2007, 05:46 PM
Well "warm-up" is over. Kristof and Chris were defeated by Damm/Paes 6-3 and 6-1 :sad:

01-03-2007, 06:01 PM
Damn :( hopefully next tourny will be better. Tho I didn't expect them to beat Damm&Paes

Edit: :rolls: I typed Damn instead of Damm :p

01-04-2007, 06:06 PM
Damn :( hopefully next tourny will be better. Tho I didn't expect them to beat Damm&Paes

Edit: :rolls: I typed Damn instead of Damm :p
:lol: When I saw the player's name I did a double take because I read it like you first posted it :rolls: Oh well on to the next Tournament :rolleyes:
