More info on this tournament here:

http://www.mallorcadiario.com/index....64&It emid=33

On April 11 at 1 p.m. CET Carlos will play Davydenko and at 3.30 p.m. Rafa will play Nalby. The next day, the winners will play the final.

I phoned Mallorca today and you cannot reserve tickets!!!! Only "show up and buy" :sad: But there are still tickets available...

Is there anyone here on the forum who is in Mallorca and would be ready, willing and able to get me a ticket? If yes, please PM me - I will be checking my PMs tomorrow evening after the Argentina - Sweden matches...

My alternative plan is to phone them again late Monday evening and if it isn't sold out by then I fly to Mallorca very early Tuesday morning coz I really really really want to go!!!

Kyla, I'm from Mallorca.

Te escribo en castellano para poderme expresar mejor: Podría conseguirte tickets algo más barato ya que tengo licencia como jugador en la Federación Balear de Tenis y hay descuento para federados. Hay un pequeño problema, ahora en España en Semana Santa los establecimientos están cerrados. Los tickets solo se pueden conseguir en las oficinas de la Federación y estos cierran estos dias (a menos que las quieras conseguir el mismo día del torneo a expensas de sí quedarán aún o no). El martes 10, el día antes podría conseguirte. Eso si, deberiamos hablar antes sobre el tema. Si quieres lo hablamos mejor por Msn Messenger, te mando el mio vía mensage privado por aquí.

Un saludo

Well, TV local broadcast is not serious. When the match was 4/3 for Carlos and in Deuce#5 they stopped to show anything because they "must to offer the News and then we'll connect again with the start of Nadal's match". What a shit of government TV who is payed by all Balearics...

Well, untill the 4/3 with Deuce#5.
Carlos started serving
1-0 Moyà
1-1 Davydenko
1-2 Davydenko (Break in love)
2-2 Moyà (Re-Break after 5 BPs)
3-2 Moyà
3-3 Davydenko
4-3 Moyà
...

Then Kyla at the match send me a sms message with the score at that moment:

6 0 - Moyà
4 1 - Davydenko <

Carlos Moyà defeated russian Nikolay Davydenko in first semifinal of an exhibition tournament which is played in Mallorca on clay by 6-4, 6-7(4-7) and 7-6(7-1) in aproximately 3 hours of match. Next match will be between Rafel Nadal and the argentinean David Nalbandián.

First set, the russian broke Moyà and had situated up by 2-1, then the local player took the re-break. Finally the spaniard broke him in tenth game of 1st set and took the first set by 6 games to 4.

At the 2nd set the Davydanko took advantadge again in the set by 3-1. But Carlos could level the set with a break. There weren't breaks untill the tie-break, when Moyà had an advantadge of 4-2 and the russian won 5 points in a row and took the Tie-Break game and the 2nd set.

At 3rd set there weren't breaks. But Davydenko had 4 break points in 6th game of 3rd set and one in 8th. Carlos had his break chances at 7th game. After 3 hours of match, the spaniard closed the match with a 7-1 in the last set Tie-Break.

It was a really closed match, two players did a high level match, hard and with lots of long rallies in the baseline. At 3rd set the two players had his chances to take the match, but at the end a tired Davydenko lost it in the tie-break.

Nadal had a SP with 3-5 up. Two players are playing so agressive in the baseline. Carlos sometimes is running to the net with long shots but Nadal can pass him with great winner shots.

Right now I've only put up a few pix of April 10 – (most of) the rest will be coming later today...

Excellent photos! Lucky you to be there and watch Baby play:worship:
He did well...tie breaker in the first and won the second...I think this bodes well for him. I'm hoping he makes a good run at the French...wouldn't it be great if Carlito won another slam?:bigclap: :bigclap: :bigclap:

Kyla

All pix now in the gallery!

And here's the first match report:
April 11 - Moyà - Davydenko:

Davydenko broke Carlos' serve in the third game :eek: - not exactly what I had hoped for!

But Carlos immediately breaks back for 2-2 (but needs 4 BPs to do so!).

Then Carlos held to love for 3-2.

Davydenko's wife was also clapping for Carlos! :lol:

In the 8th game, Carlos had 3 BPs but could not convert...

Carlos then held for 5-4 and then broke for the set! :bounce: He converted his second SP: first set Carlos 6-4!

In the second set, Carlos lost his serve in the first game :rolleyes:, then he couldn't convert a BP in the second game - 0-2. Then in the third game he was again down 0-30, but fortunately managed to make the next four points! 1-2

The Carlos broke for 2 all (needed 3 BPs for this!). Then he couldn't convert any of his 3 GPs but Davydenko only needed one BP to break again... 2-3*

Carlos got to BP with an overhead smash and breaks for 3 all. But just a little later he nets a smash and once again loses his serve for 4-5*. (Veritable break-fest this set! :rolleyes: )

Luckily, Davydenko's one of those players who are not too good when it comes to serving out a set/match: Carlos breaks yet again and it's 5 all.

Then both had difficulties with their serves but held so the second set went into a tiebreak...

First minib reak for Carlos: Great passing shot for 4-2. But a bit later he hits a double fault for 4-4 !

Unfortunately he didn't recover from that set-back... He also broke a string during the point for 4-6... In the end, he lost the TB 4-7.

In the third set, Carlos had to defend a total of 4 BPs at 2-3! 3 all after he had already been down 0-40! :eek:

In the 7th game Carlos could not convert two BPs... 3-4.

Then it was BP against Carlos but he holds for 4-4.

Davydenko holds to love: 4-5. Carlos keeps his nerve and his serve: 5 all.

Again they had to play a TB but this time Carlos triumphed and wins it 7-1! :banana:

but we all know it is not a shame to loose from nadal, moyke took one set and that is super

Nadal - Moyà - Mallorca, April 12, 2007:

For the first 5 games I was so busy taking photographs I couldn't really follow the match :lol:! But if I remember right, there were no BPs and nothing too spectacular happened...

Nadal then broke for 5-3 but couldn't serve out! Carlos broke back for 4-5, he really had to RUN for that last point! Well done :lol:

Then it was time for yet another TB: Carlos was the first to get a mini break but then lost both of his serves... :( Rafa broke once more and won the TB 7-2!

In the second set they both held serves until the 8th game when Carlos broke for 5-3. Everyone was cheering very loudly for Carlos! That seemed to help :lol: - he served out the set at 15 for 6-3. :woohoo:

In set 3, Rafa broke for 3-1 and then there was no looking back... He also won the next 3 games and the set 6-1...

I think Carlos was just out of steam in that last set - he had played a very long three-set match the day before, too. But: Good preparation for Monte Carlo! :bounce:
