    i'm saying, this tourney is getting interesting...hometown hero vs. returning star in semis on saturday?

    the nadal-haters should be licking their chops..garin has got to be their new hero..their collective orgasm of nadal losing on clay to a fifteen year-old would be earth-shattering

    sarcastic?.....thing is, not too big...solid, may get bigger, but no matter how talented a guy is, in today's game how can they compete with the bigger, stronger guys who are just as fast?...we've talked about this a lot here.... the big four are freaks

    chardy 4-6 6-3 6-2

    chardy and nadal have never played if they meet in semis, but he's got lorenzi first..and nadal has gimeno-traver

    lorenzi had that wild match with nadal in rome a couple years ago

    Russell Brand was just giving the home crowd what they wanted...a few thrills before reality had to sink in. It's a good sign to see a youngster play up so early...maybe he grows into a terre battue force and the Euroclay season will get a bit more interesting!

    1996?! Anyone born in that year shouldn't even be able to hold a tennis bat yet.

    I can tell you that nadal trained with garin the days before the tournament, and that the company that nadal has for representing players on tour, now want that garin sign with them, wich will likely happen.

    Being a Murray fan ages people. You'll have to forgive him.

    Every Grand Slam final loss has taken about 6 years off my life. I don't think I have long left.
