David does have a nice draw.

He has to build confidence in him and keep the momentum throughout the indoor season.

David, paired with Juan Monaco, will be playing doubles.

They will face the Brazilians Melo and Sa today.

Default Re: Stockholm 2008

They lost the doubles 6-1,6-3

I just hope that he decides to show up for this singles tournament. He really need to build confidence and fitness to win the DC.

I´ll go to watch SO on wednesday, hopefully (probably not) he and pimpim will win and their 2nd round clash will be scheduled for wednesday

Were you able to watch it?

Well, David had one of his very good days and it was an easy match 6-1 6-1. Let's just say that every time they got into a rally, there was only one winner in them. You can really tell on these quick courts the excellent hand-eye coordination David has because he was able to half-volley a lot of shots and redirect them, and there were a lot of winners as a result.

David won 6-1 6-1 in 47 min. Can not asses his game much cause Bobby played just awful, but it was pretty much as usual, BH rock solid, serve decent and running FH not so good (had few UE's on that wing).

Yeah, I saw it. (if you can call seeing it on that miniature Bwin video). Oh, yes I forgot about that he had few canny approach shots ending it with half volleys.

I was watching it with magnifying glass software so I had it on full screen. It's freeware.

And I had my resolution right down, because it doesn't run as smoothly otherwise for me.

It's on bwin. You have to pay for it, the equivalent of 10 euros but if you do pay for it, you never have to pay to watch anything on there again, and they do show a number of tournaments.

Actually last year they had quite many tournaments, but this year only few ones.
I've tried magnifying glass before, I did not like it at all.
