:roll: Idiot,NoBadMojo said:there are people in the US and other places watching this match on TV right now that do not wish to know the outcome of this and other matches. i think you ruined watching the match for many people. please show some consideration. if people wish to know the results to matches, there are many many websites where they can find this sort of info. thank-you. ed
I agree.NoBadMojo said:again...as a simple courtesy it would be great if people wouldnt post who won in the subject line. why is that so hard to do? it's not like this is top secret info that someone has discovered or something or proprietary info only you have. people are often watching on espn and havent taped or they have taped and also like to monitor the board. if people want to know who won or what the scores are they can then open up the thread. or..find this info in like a million other places on the web. this worked very well on this forum for a while and almost everyone was decent about this. thanks for the apology aa..that showed class. ed
This is the first time in years Andre has lost in the first round of a Slam and it's the first time in years he's entered the French Open without a title.He's actually not had a bad year so far...
It's all perspective.. he's still 9th in the ATP race this year. And he's reached the semis at AO/Indian Wells and San Jose with a 14-5 win record running up to the FO. That's still better than a whole lot of guys out there.Free_Martha said:This is the first time in years Andre has lost in the first round of a Slam and it's the first time in years he's entered the French Open without a title.
So far, I'd say his 2004 year is going very badly.
Excuse me Gustavo you must not have seen the same match as me cuz I was at Roland yesterday and i've seen the whole match, OkAY ANDRE WAS NOT AT HIS BEST (especially in the 3rd) but Kudos to Haenel who has made a huge match, He'd never shrinked back, his groundstrokes were always deep and spinny. at the beginning I remember myself saying to my friends near me "this unknown guy had some balls, he was huge on his back side and moreover often turn around his B/HD to deliver heavy uncrosswise forehands that Andre had never be able to punch up along the line.... Also he served and returned very well and had made a great cover of the baseline. His mental was phenomenal also for a 270 ranked players who played for the 1st time on the historic "Central" under thousands eyes... In a way he made the match of his life and we all know RG is propitious to this phenomena.gustavo33 said:that was the worst match i´ve ever seen in the atp... agassi had no motivation, and the french guy had horrible strokes
