Re: Adelaide 2008: Australian Summer Tournaments

Nice draw :eek: Of course, he's going to run into one of the Frenchies since there are too many of them here :lol:

Paulo will be working with Mats Wilander in all these tourneys, btw. Patrice said he'd be there. But his job is help choosing players for DC, not as Paulo's coach.

Re: Adelaide 2008: Australian Summer Tournaments

Is any livestream for Adelaide?? I didn't find it, and I would like to see Paulo because I asked him to put his cap in Adelaide for our Christmas Present !
I can only find a stream from Doha :awww:

But there will be some pictures from the match, I'm sure. :D
You mean you gave him a cap? :bounce:

Re: Adelaide 2008: Australian Summer Tournaments

At roland garros it was also sunny and he didn't have a cap :rolleyes:
Let's see tonight for us in France.. I hope we will be able to see him on a livestreaming..
It could not possibly be as hot as Adelaide ;)

I thought Eurosport france would show this match :scratch:
