I left during the middle of the fifth... Alex did well to come back. The chilean fans were being asswipes, and there were very few of us there to cheer him on. Will have to get christina to write a report about the end of the match when the feistyness began GO ALEX!!!! WOooooo!!!!! But he's playing someone I like next, I think... Mathieu. He's grown on me...but Alex is a softy off court sooo.....
Thanks BJ! Appreciate it. Would love to have seen this match.
woooooowww..... I was just catching up in the TennisWeek forum. I cannot believe how judgemental they are being. Are they all WTA fans or what Absolute idiots. Yes, he can act like a two year old at times when he's on the court. He can be loud and definitely give off the 'i'm a major asshole' vibe. But... to attack him as a person is absurd. "No respect for fans" they say? This is the guy that leans over the stands to give you a high five for watching his match. The guy who apologises sincerely after dripping sweat onto a photo i had of him and i... after I yelled at him (nicely, post-match) for doing so
He might be a boofhead on the court at times, but full points for off court behaviour with me... until he plays/destroys someone in my signature then I might get a little bit annoyed
♥ Oliver Marach ~ Jarkko Nieminen ~ Jürgen Melzer ~ Evgeny Korolev ♥
Well...he did beat Jurgen a couple of years ago in Sydney, remember?
It's ok, I won't hold that against him because:
1. Jurgen is doing ok now, even if he does have a weird hairstyle (which I dreamt about last night! OMG!)
2. Alex Popp was on the next court, so I watched more of that match instead ^_^ Ahh... Alex (edit: Bogomolov. Well, Popp too...) is a good man lol!
I'm almost up to scanning my SLR pics (my actual photos, instead of digital pics) and have an alex one which I'll put up later. But for now, I need to get ready for the Wheelchair tennis event in Sydney
eeeppp Bogie has Luczak in the 1st rnd of qualies in Memphis. Peter does have a win over Bogie but that was in 02 and a lot has changed since then. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this one.
