I wrote this in the yahoo group, but dont have time to answer questions here, so if you've got something to ask, please do it in the yahoo gorup! Thanks
Amer Delic df Alex Bogomolov. And rightly so. Alex had a habit of
throwing his racquet around, and although he's polite and nice off
court, he was acting like an ass today. I doubt he gained many fans!
(Amer kinda looks like a good looking federer... peta, dont judge
him yet :P Wait til you see him!
Saw Lars Graff
Got a pic, LOL!
Enqvist made Sluiter look like a beginner! Now, I like Raemon, but
Thomas is Swedish, so he's my priority! He was playing beautifully,
at one stage he had 40-00 and went for a dropshot. It was crap,
barely hit the net onhis side... so he walked back to the crowd,
gesturing a gun(with his fingers) to his head. The crowd found it
highly amusing, and he went on to win that game. You couldnt help
but feel bad for Raemon. He couldnt get his serves in, a lot of
balls were going wide. He was all over the place, but he was a
gentleman about it.
Baccanello vs Saulnier. Saulnier is cool! He got a foot fault, and
when the ball came back, he kicked it, and it hit a ballgirl. Next
ppoint was match point, so he walked to the net, shook baccanello's
hand, and then waited to see if the girl was ok, before shaking the
ump's hand. He shook the girls hand too
Sweet! (So Sorry about
all the errors! I'm in a rush)
Jurgen vs Berdych64 46 63
Jurgen played beautiful tennis in the first set! In the second, he
served first, lost it and never quite recovered. Ah well, in typical
Jurgen style he made it in 3
He made a few double faults, as did
Tomas. Both their first serves were pretty sh!t! otherwise serving
was good. few errors... I sat a couple of seats across from his
coach, but as kat and i have been saying lately "I was here first".
Simon Aspelin - Left after he won the first set
Some foot faults,
Simon hit it at Haggard a couple of times. There were a LOT of
Aussie spectators (about 30-40, and later built up to around 50..)
and Graydon Oliver and Jim Thomas were keen to have a look. at 5-6
in the third, Simon was throwing/bouncing his racquet! Very pissed,
I never saw him so angry! lol (and even then, he was subdued. He's
swedish after all). They came back and won the set in a TIEBREAK!!
Met Jim Thomas. Guys, he's really nice. If you see him at a
tournament, you should go and say gday. He's so welcoming! And he
has that 'friendly' look about him
