She looked but didn't bother us anymore!!

Don't think it was one of us ... the people from the location were very mad when somebody was eating. I had to stop people who get something to eat or drink and wanted to go back at their seats

We could have drawn worse, but also better I think!
But this isn't impossible anyway. Those giants have big serves, but they're not unbeatable.
When they play on hardcourt I think Martens will take Malisse, Olivier, Gilles and Dick (unless Vliegen gets up in the rankings until then...)

Re: Belgian Davis Cup Team

I had a great time in Doornik

On friday I had the 'job of the day' I had to close the 'door' when the players started to play and open it when they stoped During the match I was sitting down watching the match Getting paid to watch tennis Can it be better?

Saturday I had another job but I still did see much of the match Kristof and Ollie for Athenes

btw they speak french

Belgiangirl did you had a ticket for the 'M-places'? M2/3/4? Otherwise I might have seen you because you had to pass me

Olivier is a great guy seeing him backstage and on court maded me an even bigger fan of him
Xavier ... well I didn't liked him before, he wasn't great in Doornik (not attending the matches of others, acting foolish (I am the man did you see me? ) and if I have to believe the stories of the other people who were working there the hole week

Well I really really REALLY don't like him

I forgot my camera so no pics

BelgiŽ loot KroatiŽ 13-04-2004
In de barragewedstrijden voor een plaats in de Wereldgroep van de Davis Cup heeft BelgiŽ KroatiŽ geloot.

De ontmoeting wordt in KroatiŽ gespeeld , op een nog te bepalen ondergrond, van 24 tot 26 september. BelgiŽ plaatste zich dankzij een 4-1-zege op Zimbabwe voor de barrages en speelde in Davis Cup verband nog nooit tegen dit land.

KroatiŽ kwam dit jaar uit in de wereldgroep, maar verloor al in de eerste ronde. Frankrijk klopte de Kroaten met 4-1 in Metz. Voor de Kroaten speelden toen Ivan Ljubicic, Ivo Karlovic en Mario Ancic. Allemaal behoren ze tot de top-100 van de ranking. KroatiŽ start dan ook als favoriet tegen de Belgen.

DAVISCUPTEAM HEEFT HANDEN VOL MET ZIMBABWE
TENNIS
Malisse stuurt BelgiŽ moeizaam naar barrage


DOORNIK - BelgiŽ speelt eind september de barragewedstrijden voor een terugkeer in de Wereldgroep van de Davis Cup. In Doornik zag kapitein Steven Martens zijn Daviscupteam in de tweede ronde van de Euro-Afrikaanse zone moeizaam winnen van Zimbabwe (4-1).

OLIVIER Rochus verloor vrijdag verrassend de openingspartij tegen Wayne Black zodat na de zege van Xavier Malisse op Genius Chidzikwe de stand in evenwicht was. Zaterdag maakte de jongste Rochus zijn uitschuiver goed door samen met Kristof Vliegen het duo Black-Ullyett, een van de sterkste dubbelteams ter wereld, te kloppen. ,,Ons doel was Black zo lang mogelijk op de baan te houden, zodat hij zondag vermoeid zou zijn. Maar eigenlijk wilden we ook winnen'', aldus Vliegen.

Toch begon Black op de slotdag nog sterk tegen Xavier Malisse. De West-Vlaming verloor de eerste twee sets en leek op een nederlaag af te stevenen. ,,Vroeger was het in drie sets gedaan geweest, maar nu volg ik mentale lessen'', zei Malisse. ,,Ik denk aan filmsterren zoals Rocky om mijn vechtersmentaliteit boven te halen.'' Het werkte en Malisse won de partij nog in vijf sets. De winst van Christophe Rochus tegen Chidzikwe deed er niet meer toe.

Vanmiddag kennen de Belgen hun tegenstander voor de barrageduels voor een plaats in de Wereldgroep. Omdat ze geen reekshoofd zijn, behoren AustraliŽ en Rusland tot de mogelijke tegenstanders. ,,Het liefst zou ik thuis spelen'', zegt Steven Martens. ,,Je kunt dan de ondergrond kiezen, maar ook het publiek is een enorme steun.'' Om 14 uur wordt op de zetel van de Internationale Tennisfederatie (ITF) in Londen de loting gehouden.

We got autographs of the whole team by the way and all of them were really friendly.

Xavier's match was quite fun to watch and we were happy he won it so easy!
Afterwards we saw Christophe Rochus in the hall, he was just standing between the people who went home and was talking to some people. A friend of mine asked if we could take a picture of him with us and he was really friendly and posed with us!


I really hope we have a good draw for the barage in september and I hope we can play at home again!! Because we don't get to see our boys play live enough.
hey!
I went too on friday and on sunday! It were two wonderful days! I can't stop talking about...
Yes, i have also a signature of oli (and the whole team) and we take a pic with him!!!
On sunday we saw Kristof in the hall before the match was starting and we asked and he posed too!!! :d
