Me too, especially when I saw him holding back the tears during his speech. :sad: He was so miserable, it broke my heart. I taped it, but I'd have to be a serious masochist to watch it again. Maybe after he wins RG next year. ;)

Layla I have it on tape too. :sigh: I'll watch it eventually.

I also have Monte Carlo 2002 final on tape, Rome 2001 final, Hamburg or Rome semis, I can't recall which.

I had the Hamburg final but tapoed over it. Wish I hadn't ,even though he lost to Portas.

Anyhow, his match against Federer at the US Open 2001 looked good, but I didn't see it.

Yes, that was supposedly a great one, but it's difficult to pick it as the favorite match if you never got a chance to see it. :(

How much does it cost?

he played Federer at the USO 2001? i don't think so. i thought he lost to Robredo? i remember he lost to Tommy 7-6 in the 5th set, it was the 100th match at the Open decided on a final set tiebreak!

that must have been a great match too, but i didn't get to see it!

Yes, he lost to Robredo in the 3rd round, after beating Di Pasquale and Voltchkov. He did beat Federer in the US Open 2000, though - in the third round. In the fourth he lost against Marat.

Let me know if you wanna find out how I know all that. ;)

Yeah US open 2000, sorry I messed up the years :p

I knew about losing to Marat etc, that was a tough loss :eek: Not close at all...

Robredo was awful, but at least it was Robredo and not someone I dont like.

um, it will cost me about 40 buck Canadian to get the tape of the DC match.

if you want the site or the email of the people I can give it to you.

I'm surprised that no one mentions Davis Cup final vs Hewitt.

another one that I didnt see, but I'm ordering it off the internet as soon as I have the money.
I've never seen this match but would definitely pay for it. Where can you order it?

Layla - they are infact, based in England. That is why it is so expensive for me to buy the tape, due to exchange on the Canadian dollar, which is low right now.

tennishack - the email adress if [email protected] just tell them what match you want, the year, etc and they will give you all the details.

They mail to all parts of the world.
