I presume those times are CET? If so, then tomorrow's British Eurosport match (14:15 BST) looks like it will be Nadal V Gasquet.

I can't cheer for anyone or they will lose.

Come on Mariano take out Big Nose Robredo. Good luck to Marat and Labadze.

Lets go Gaudio at least you are winning doubles matches. I hope he doesn't have visions of becoming a doubles specialist.

gaudio and chela defeated santoro ?????

Yes, so what do you think of my theory of Gaudio becoming a doubles specialist?

It's the only way he can win matches, he played well with Ivo at the AO, won his first doubles title this year. I see a progression here.

I hope not, I just hope he will win a tournament this year and finish top 30.

Anyway, good news.

In Buenos Aires against Acasuso he was serve and volleying on clay quite a lot, serving kick serves to the backhand of acasuso and net rushing.

Of course I want him to want a tournament and I don't want him to become a doubles specialist.

He really needs to perform at these clay TMS events this year. Maybe he should play in Båstad this year instead of Gstaad and maybe he might win a tournament this year, but I doubt it.

Good that he has varied some of his plays, his volleys aren't that bad. The thing is he could never beat Rios.

I thought about betting on Safin for this match. What I've seen, with the doctor treating Marat and then him losing his serve make me very glad I didnt.

Aurora
04-15-2004, 02:09 PM
break to start! let's make it a quick one...

the first serve percentage Safin has shown in his first two matches (haven't seen anything though) is not gonna help against a bigger opponent

Zaba what's going on serving for the set and losing it to make it 5-5, get your head out of your arse and start playing again.

TheBoiledEgg
04-15-2004, 02:25 PM

Action Jackson
04-15-2004, 02:35 PM
Well done Zaba you pillock serving for the 2nd set, had set points in the tiebreaker and manage to lose Big Nose Robredo. At least you can get to Monte Carlo early.

Safin should have this in the bag.

Let's go Gaudio/Chela won the 1st set and break them soon.

Toute à fait. Vive le tennis Francais avec des champions juniors comme Monfils, Mutis, Mahut, Di Pasquale, Santoro, Tsongas, Mathieu, Grosjean. Jeanpierre, Gasquet et Morel. Also there are so many talented players outside the top 100, it's hard to know who will get WC's for French Open. My guess is Patience, Mahut, Monfils and Di Pasquale who is playing well on futures tour after a being absent for over a year due to injury.
