    ok I am full of errors :p
    Ancic is the comback kid alright. If your confidence is rising, your luck is rising, too.
    what's the saying:
    "Skill is, when luck becomes common." ;) - seems like it applies to Mario atm.
    His netcords saved his life. But Davy, you should have won this match in 2. :(

    OK, so I see you keep using those sentences, and I won't avoid you to do it, so it's better for you if u understand what they mean, so we can use them in the right context:

    Vamos xxx, viejo y peludo:
    "C'mon, xxx, old and hairy":

    An old spanish phrase from ARG, to wish someone good luck.

    Forza xxx:
    "Force/strength/power, xxx":

    That's Italian.
    It's used to wish luck. More literally, to wish them a little force, heart, to take out whatever is inside them to pull the match off.

    Vamos, xxx, dejate de jorobar
    "C'mon, xxx, stop playing around!!!"

    No need for explanation. It means just that "Stop playing/messing/f┬Ěcking around", as in "stop playing around, focus, and play some real tennis!!!"

    Now you're not illiterate anymore, so you can use them in the right context ;)

    Nice choke job by David Ferrer, he was up 6-1 in the tie-breaker and he loses it.First set for Robredo 7-6.

    Robredo is the last of the Top 10 seeds left.

    After 7 set points and 4 direct headshots, Good night, sweet Prince; flights of angels and Ferrer's mighty right arm sing thee to thy rest. Awesome tie-break 10-8

    how Ferrer could lose the first set after 7 sp's and 5 in a row is beyond me, but great win for Tommy.
    He finally has a 1:0 lead over Ferrer :)

    I'm sure Robredo will win this - it's time again for a blogger to win the tournament he blogs!
    And I don't like "the beauty" :p

    Well, I was as neutral as Switzerland up to now for this tourney but am going to be rooting 100% for Robredo. Stepanek is too irritating with his silly antics and sillier (hockey referee?) shirts. Go Tommy, go!

    (...Also, if the rumours are true, Martina how *can* you?)

    Okay, so, who were the three freaking psychics who voted for Robredo in this poll?

    You think Bracciali, Karlovic, and Acasuso will win everything. Eventually you have to get lucky.

    hahahahaah, yeh, now THAT was clairvoyant. How has Bracciali not won more titles? That guy is a well-rounded player.
    Well, even if he never wins one again, he will always have Paris...I mean Casablanca. And if you're going to be a veteran pro with a smaller tournament as your only title....there's not much hipper a city to win in than Casablanca.

    The right word there is EVENTUALLY :D

    That's right, it's too easy to be a Nadal fan, or a Federer fan, they always win... That's why I'm fan of the little guys, the underdogs, it's much more rewarding when they finally win :)

    But, Acasuso is now Top30, and both Karlovic and Bracciali are Top50... so I'll have to pick up someone new from the Top150, and bring him to the spolights as well :mrgreen:
