Default 2008 Olympics

Thought we should start a thread up for the Olympics since they start tomorrow.

I have posted a picture of Willy and other Argies to start with.

Monaco looks realy thin since his bout of pneumonia (sp!)

If anyone wants to change the title go ahead.

It's going to be so hard for them leaving the cold season in Argentina and having to deal with the heat and humidity of Beijing...a bigger challenge for them than the guys who left the heat of Cincy. Good Luck to a great team.

I think the guys will be fine as they train all the time in the heat. The smog will be the problem. Hoping that Willy has got his mojo back and plays really well. In the picture I thought he looked really relaxed and happy. Will his coach Gaston be going with him or is it just the Argentina team captain. Willy looked hott. Sorry just having a girl moment.

I have posted the draw for you. Unfortunately if Willy gets through his first rd match Soderling is waiting for him in the 2nd round.

I agree not the best draw but what's new so we have to deal with it. and frankly he has to beat players like Soderling if he wants to get back to where he was. Good Luck Willy

Ok I was scoreboard watching and Willy has retired. Snoo if you are around I thought you were joking about his wrist.

Default Re: 2008 Olympics

No he didn't retire the other guy retired, Niemeyer, Niemeyer won the first set then Willy went up 4-2 in the second and the other dude retired. I don't know what happened to Niemeyer, maybe he hurt himself, cuz he obviously was playing OK in the first set.

But I am under the impression that his wrist is not in good shape but this is cuz I convinced myself that I can read Portuguese, which I can't. But losing a set to Niemeyer is not reassuring, frankly I think Willy lucked out on that one...

Default Re: 2008 Olympics

I was just about to come and said he didn't retire. The reason I thought he retired was the scoreboard I was watching had retired against his name. Sorry for the confusion.

I am not pissed off anymore. Snoo I hope his wrist is going to hold up as I want him to play well and I think him and Nalby can do some damage in the doubles.

Nice to see you around btw.

I'm so happy he got out of that match. Lucky really.

I hope he can play better against Soderling.

woohoo another stroke of good luck for Willy, Soderling loss. I have tried to insert a smiley but my computer won't let me. Hopefully Willy will play a lot better against the French dude. Dont know when his match will take place as there is a backlog of matches due to bad weather.

Also congrats to Nalby and JDMP for their wins today.

Weel, the "French dude" is Simple Simon and he's been doing very good lately so I doubt it will be easier for Willy
