My Anna is in the red leggings.

Raquel, I think they said that woman is from Hungary.
Hungary I thought it was an Eastern Europe accent.

I think Dubai to IW is a nicer transition.

Of course. Heck, the one time I´ve seen him play live was when he played there in 2010. Of course he lost

I agree that it´s better for his schedule he doesn´t play there, but I´d like it if he did for my own selfish reasons, that is, so that I can watch him

I've seen a couple of dispiriting losses. The 2010 one at IW was the absolute worst. Depressing even.

But then look how he turned things around.

So, what happened to Klizan?

I heard he was injured, but missed what it was.

Playing Simon can be brutal.

I never saw Nole lose. And I have watched him play many times.

Ok I have seen half a loss. I watched him play Rafa in Madrid in 2009... that painful match. But I had to leave when the 3rd set was 2-2, or something like that, because I had to run to the airport in order not to lose my flight... so I didn't really watch him lose. It was a marathon, I ran (subway) from the tennis center to the hostel to get my bag, then got on the subway again to the airport. This takes like an hour. During this I had my sister texting me the score everytime someone won a game. And then when TB started, I ordered her text me every point. When she told me he had lost, I started crying in the middle of the airport.

Well, I hope I´ll be able to catch one of the two tournaments there this year, but up until now I never really had the money (and yes, that has a lot to do with the fact that I tend to spend the little I have on frivolities).

That was gutwrenching on the tv, never mind like this, with the partisan Madrileno audience and all.

Ok I counted, I didn't watch him play that many matches. 8 single matches and 2 or 3 doubles matches.

I went there for ONE DAY AND ONE DAY ONLY! Toasted under the sun and he lost to Ljubo

Looks like cramping to me. Took lots of energy to save all those BPs.

Ohhhhhhh

That was a match either could have won. I think now Nole would win simply because of confidence.

This is the peak of Nole's career and all fans should enjoy it and revel in it. It lasts such a short time for a tennis player.

Lucky for Nole, Rafa, and Murray that the next crop of youngsters is sort of blah.

Talking about the generation right before Filip and Alex, of course.

I think travelling to tournaments is cheaper in Europe than in North America and the tickets are cheaper, right?
