SPADEA, Vincent USA vs (7) GINEPRI, Robby USA

That Tournament last year broke my heart :crying2: Tommy did beat Andy, but he got hurt playing him. And then Tommy had to retire against Mardy Fish due to the injury :sad: Good Luck this year Tommy :)

I'm glad that Tommy could travel to Houston sunday morning. His draw isn't bad, there's a good chance to win some matches. But step by step.

True :devil: :lol: But there are still other players that Tommy has to look out for :sad: Sometimes I think Tommy overlooks players and gets defeated by players that shouldn't defeat him :rolleyes:

Well done Tommy. He was down 1-4 in the final set. If Tommy lost the match against Sam, he would have been out of the top 10 and Murray would have replaced him.

No injury, because he withdrew from MC before his QF in Houston. I guess Tommy's clay highlights are Munich and Hamburg this summer.

I hate to say it, but if he couldn't win in Houston he wouldn't have won in MC either :sad: :bigcry:

That's Tommy, he loves to play the US MM tournaments. ;) And he don't like the red surface. But I hope we'll see a solid clay season. :unsure:

Yes I would much rather have Tommy on the hard courts in the U.S. :p
