he got a lot of knocks for qualifying for Shanghai. some said he had no right to be there bec his RG win was just a fluke. but he showed up and he played his heart out and i couldn't be prouder. i swear i feel like his mum (i'm not). lol...;)

yeah i am proud of him too. Initially nobody was betting one single buck for him. And he has finished putting under doubts up to the last minute the qualification to the semi-finals of the world number one .
¡Bien hecho Alberto! You can let satisfied Shanghai :)

he played fabulously considering his confidence indoors was not high. Beating Safin is amazing and so far he is the only one to come very close to bating Carlos Moya. I love you ALBERT!!!! :hearts:

Yes, congrats Albert! I hope he now rests his back and spends some time in the sun. He did himself proud this week! I'm proud to be a fan!

Costa was the guy who first got me to watching men's tennis. It was either in '99 or 2000. He sort of dissapeared after that. But he made the Cup this season, he's still around. I'm pretty proud of him too.

Excellent performance and I regret for disregarding him before the tournament began. He proved that he's place was well deserved.

Although I thought before the Masters Cup that Costa was gonna be the weakest in the tournament, I think that I was wrong and he tried his best during the whole tournament, and even beated Marat.
So, he must be proud of himself. He was almost in semifinals.

Great job Albert!
I remember not so long ago I had to dig many stats from his carreer to prove people he was no damn fluke on RG. Well, anyway... He played some very good matches, a lot better than I could expect. Great end of season. :)

Btw, I love your signature, Andromeda! ;)

Costa is a first class player. He whipped the competition in Paris. Thus his Roland Garros championship was no fluke. And now he's proven he can play with the best players indoors. Congrats to Costa. But why can't he win the French again? I think he can!

I don't think that Costa will defend next year, the cat ;)

But CAN he? I would think that if he can beat Guga, Corretja and Ferrero, that he can surely win again. I just dont' think the cards will be in his favour next year *wishful thinking at play here*

Anyhow - I never felt his Roland Garros was a fluke - it was a surprise, but only because he had underachieved there for so long. I had a feeling before the finals he would win, as much as it killed me to say so :sad:

funny, because i had a feeling about costa after he came through mental nightmare 1st round match against Gasquet, where he lost the first set. i think he really steeled himself to come out firing in every match after that.
