Well it's 15-0!
Those darn commentators had me ready to kick the TV. They were so rude to the Spaniards. Especially Fernando. They did shut up a bit when the match got close. I wanted Feli and Fernando to win so bad, even if they didn't end up winning the tie they could at least bring the American team, the American fans and those lousy commentators back down to earth. I really couldn't take much more of the praising of the Americans and the tearing apart of the Spaniards. I don't care if they were broadcasting to an American audience. I'm American (but cheering for Spain) and really couldn't stand listening to them any longer.

I was thinking that too (about how good Feli looked). Those Spaniards look so good in those white Davis Cup shirts. It was pretty cool how Feli was so into cheering for Fernando. It's nice seeing how they are such good friends.

that's true Lynn - my fav Lendl turned his game around when he was 25 - and he was the most notorious choker on tour. And Canas is playing fabulous tennis and he's 29, right?

And with Gonzalez doing well, they just ignore Nico now.
I think maybe the Chilean media is a bit like ours in the UK - you build your idols up to knock 'em down. Marcelo had a really hard time with the Chilean press - at least now they appreciate him. I've never been keen on Henman, but I always feel sorry for him at Wimby time. Nico will hopefully keep working hard and bounce back.

Fer and Feli played well in the doubles - wish they'd taken that 4th set - the Bryans were really rattled in the 4th - who know what would have happened in a 5th? Well done chicos!

erm, and being shallow, yes, they both looked hotties, except Fer looked 'seriously hot' - and Ferrer was a hottie courtside!

Poor Feli - his fh is letting him down. He looks so discouraged. I don't like to see my chicos unhappy.

And James as usual is annoying me. I like James - but he makes it difficult at times.

Was the rest of the team watching Feli's match?

I know what you mean. I'm American too but I also was cheering for Spain. They were the worst commentators ever, aren't they supposed to at least attempt to appear unbiased? But they did say one nice thing about Feli today, that he had the looks to be a star.

I wanted Feli to win so badly today. It was so frustrating, he'd play well for a few points and then miss for a few points. And stupid James was smirking the whole time. Ugh. I really don't like any of the players on the U.S team.

Thank you for posting that. I was so pissed at him. I try to like James, but he makes it difficult. He did that against Gonzalez last year when he was up 2 sets to zero - and then Fernando made him pay for it - I've never been so happy to see that stupid smile wiped off his face when Fernando won in 5. But our sweet Feli isn't tough like Gonzo, and he couldn't do that. It's so not nice of James to smirk like that when Feli is struggling so much now.

And the announcers were horrid. I wanted to put on the mute button but I was recording it.

I met him today! He's really really REALLY nice to fans...he signed a TON of autographs although he really didn't need to and also patiently posed for a lot of pictures with fans (for example, lopez just walked off after his match, using his bag to avoid the fans, hah)

he really is extremely sweet and extremely patient...i also took a picture of him with my sister, he was also extremely patient then, as my camera was being extremely slow...

ive definitely been converted to verdasco fandom! =)

do I dare ask who the commentators were for the DC, NF? not happy w the DC QF results... it w have been amazing for ESP to d USA in USA... so boring...

and now the chicos have to fly home for the Valencia tourney, late, jetlagged and unprepared on clay... how crappy that is for them...

RogiFan!

The announcers were Jimmy Arias and some guy Lief Shiras (spelling?). Obviously they were rooting for the Americans, but at the same time, they didn't have to be mean to Fer and Feli.
