Guess I mind as well do something usefull and keep you gus posted on the onsight view from the tourney. Pretty calm first day, with a lot of people coming to watch the event since yesterday was a holiday here. The highlights of the day: Gaudio almost lost to a Czech guy called Jan Hernych (ranked 70s) on a 3 setter. Jan had a matchpoint on the second set at 5-4 but on that set point gaudio clashed his serve response on Jan's backline and not happy with that he slammed a left hader on top of the net that just squeezed through to the other side. Guess you can call it champs luck. Our own Leonardo Tavares failed to beat Galo Blanco for a seed on the main draw. Better luck next time man. Dokic lost to Bondarenko on a 3 setter. It was nice to see her again (not for the tennis...) Garcia-Lopes blocked Karlovic's 200Km/h+ serves to an easy win. (Man that guy is huge!!) Other than that the same old Estoril Open, lots of sun, heat, babes and dust. Tommorow the fun will begin with Ferrero, Moya, Johansson and the likes cruiing through their first rounds (or not). Peace for you all.
