jac?

FoT?

Posted by jb 05/14/2007 at 07:16 AM

FoT is a woman! but I'm going with snoo - jac!

Morning snoo - you watching reeshard and gaudio?

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 07:17 AM

Sam?

Posted by Snoo Foo 05/14/2007 at 07:19 AM

jb, I sure am, whoo whoo, El Gato actually held serve once! Vamos!

Posted by Samantha 05/14/2007 at 07:25 AM

This is so easy, its Jac and the XMF fanatic is Tari. Steggy, you gave to many clue. Jac is always flirting with Tari. Wait it could be me because Tim has a huge crush on me. Go Justine! LOL!

Posted by jb 05/14/2007 at 07:26 AM

I wish gaudio would play better this second set. he did against Roddick so there's hope.

VAMOS GAUDIO! *please?*

oooh - looks like he's going to hold to start.

'morning jac!

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 07:31 AM

Hey jb

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 07:34 AM

You're right, Samantha. Last week Tim let slip his Scandanavian heritage-and this was NOT an accident

Posted by Samantha 05/14/2007 at 07:40 AM

You're cute Jac, I thought you would be older. Jac, who are your favorites? What do you think of Justine?

Posted by jb 05/14/2007 at 07:44 AM

eand there we go - we're on serve! 3 all. See El Gato just needs a set to settle his tummy - then he can play.

i don't think i have EVER seen so much activity at the net in clay.

oh dear - even as i type 15 - 40

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 07:50 AM

Thanks, Samantha, and I'm sorry I'm not older-I'll have to do something about that-just for you.

As for Justine, all kidding aside, I have always liked her-I think she's got incredible mental strength. I remember a match years ago, I think it was at the USO when she was playing the Capster, and everyone was rooting for Jenny, and Justine came through in a real gutsy performance. So yeah, I really do like her

Posted by jb 05/14/2007 at 08:01 AM

wow - looks windy there. they're showing highlites of clement and stepanek.

Sorry Snoofoo - but the second set was respectable at least.

*hugs El Gato*

Posted by Lisa 05/14/2007 at 08:23 AM

Wow? This is Jac in the photo?? Cool...

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 09:16 AM

Ptenisnet and Tony Roche have mutually decided to end their 2 1/2 year long part-time MNP Guessing coaching arrangement. "I thank Tony very much for his efforts over these last years, during which I appreciated the 12-15 weeks per season we would work together. I am also grateful for the sacrifice he made, traveling so far from his home in Australia and leaving his family." The partnership, by all accounts a successful one, had resulted in 6 consecutive correct guesses on the MNP. This new development comes as a double blow for Tony Roche, who was, just this weekend, let go by Roger Federer.


Nice shades jac.

Posted by Tari 05/14/2007 at 09:26 AM

Well, I have to say that I was completely stumped on this one!
I'm glad I'm in good company, ptenisnet. Tony (and Fed)will bounce back, and so will you.

Posted by pt 05/14/2007 at 09:39 AM

Question:
Where is Kim on rankings?
Is she already excluded from there?

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 09:39 AM

Hey ptennis, hey Tari

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 09:43 AM

Yo! jac. Where are you from?

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 09:46 AM

Boston, ptennis and you?-Ill guess NYish, no?

Posted by cc 05/14/2007 at 09:47 AM

pt, kim was completely removed from the rankings

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 09:51 AM

Boston, but you are all over the south pacific?
NYish is correct. I live in a suburb of NYC called New Jersey.

You and mrssanta should buy each other a drink on me at the next available opportunity.

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 09:55 AM

Yeah, I tend to travel a lot.

Sure I'd be honoured to buy you a drink-but I think I scare the venerable Mrs S with an imagined substance issue-in short I convinced she thinks I'm nuts

Posted by Snoo Foo 05/14/2007 at 09:56 AM

I flove the Clementine shades.

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 10:00 AM

Clementine, eh? Snoo, I'm dumb!

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 10:04 AM

I think she will be fine as long as you dont start sniffing her wide variety of hair products.

Posted by roland garros 05/14/2007 at 10:06 AM

patrick, kirilenko just lost in a marathon. good match and sugiyama played well but i think maria could have had this. she showed signs of greatness and then threw in the most stupid errors. at one point, she saved three match-points on sugiyama's serve but then promptly got broken in the next game. very frustrating. i think she will improve, though. she needs to get her nerves straight.

also, paszek won (she crushed pratt in the last two sets) and has set up the jankovic match that i discussed.

next up, rezai and hantuchova.

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 10:13 AM

Actually pt, I was kind of worried that one look at this photo would cause her (Mrs S) to hurl over her beige jodpurs which she had donned for a Kmart candle-lit soiree with the erratic Jay, whom she noticed, upon re-entering her boudoir about to be locked in requested closet by a shiny-leather-clad Mistress Lucy brandishing a boomarang

Posted by Beth 05/14/2007 at 10:21 AM

cool photo, Jac ! got your stunna shades on - I see.
so Andrew - last night my little mind worked ouvertime and thought up this new scene for our play - here it goes - hope you don't mind - you said you were busy with your beloved spreadsheets - so i will take the liberty ...
SCENE 4 : a motel room near the Romany bistro- two figures are in a bed, it is dark . The man is sleeping blissfully. The woman is awake and talking to herself.
Martina: Look what they have done to me ... sleeping with this , this thing .... They will all pay
Quasi: ( awakes) Did you say something...dear?
M: (turns to him) I said , a great day. Quasi, I feel as if I have seen you before- could that be true?
Q : well - Disney did make a movie about me a few years back. maybe that is it.
M:Disney- you worked for Disney?
Q: well , not exactly, but I guess you could say that
M: perfect...(she pauses as if in deep thought , and then visibly brightens) Quasi - I have a fabulous plan. We will get our revenge on the men who have hurt us. My former lover and the evil manskank who stole your beloved. What do you think of that?
Q: I am listening...
M: You will become the head of a powerful organization, I have connections , I can get your there.You will impress them with your business experience. They are but stupid jocks, what do they know. It's not like they went to Harvard or anything.
Q: Genius, together , we will control tennis. You , Martina , former No 1 and I , Quasimodo De Villiers, will control the ATP.
M: I will make calls now. Think of what we can do
Q: we will mess with their calendar... and I have always liked the round robin format...
Fade as Martina laughs at the thought of the evil she has unleashed.
M: ( to herself) The black widow strikes again

Hello all!

I'm relatively new to these blogs, so I thought I should just say hi! I've been lurking for a bit, but I love the conversation here, so here I am!

And hey, I'm in Boston too! Though not year-round; any other Floridians out there? Yay for the college life!

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 10:29 AM

Hey Beth,Hey Tennis-smiles-I hope tennis smiles on Rog this week,

Posted by Tokyo Tom (tt) 05/14/2007 at 10:30 AM

Here is my new theory - After the Year End and AO, Fed and Tony went all out to "fit" his game to go after Rafa and the French. We have spoken about a falling from #1 Andy R being so focused on the Fed, he forgot he still had to beat the other guys.

Now, mid May, Fed with a new racquet and having messed with the game is finding his forehand no longer a consistent weapon, his serve finding comport in the high 40% and his tiebreak record heading south rapidly.

Tony - a reluctant traveler at best, has decided the changes did not work and instead of having problems with Rafa on clay, Fed is having problems with lots of guys on all surfaces. Fed has realized that the grass is coming up and his only streak records left in tact, that something has to happen.

Thus the get back to the practice courts to find his game again and forget all the tweaking to beat Rafa at the French that did not work at MC - I am thinking that is where the wheels came off and reality set in as they were able to write off IW and Miami and even MC as finding the right new strategy - many thought those comments realted to strictly Rafa's game, but I think he was speaking about making the new approach in his game work properly.

So here we enter Hamburg and within striking distance of the FO / Wimbley - I think the most important month in tennis with Fed giving up on the "new rafa beater game" and hoping to just find the Fed game where he can beat the other guys and give Rafa a run for his money.

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 10:52 AM

tt

Your theory is entirely possible but it's hard for me to articulate just what Feds clay game was before the wheels came off-it was erratic without any real consistency that was obvious to an observer. It might have even mystified him.

But when things aren't working, clearly change is necessary.

Posted by nica 05/14/2007 at 10:53 AM

Does anyone have anymore details about Direct TV's French Open coverage? I keep searching the listings for anything tennis but still don't see any upcoming french open coverage.

Posted by Snoo Foo 05/14/2007 at 10:53 AM

tennis_smiles - wilkommen!

jac, i'm just obnoxiously obscure. http://tinyurl.com/2crdzk

Snoo,

got it! phew

Posted by Beth 05/14/2007 at 11:08 AM

welcome- tennis-smiles. glad you decided to join us.
so I read back over a few things from yesterday, that were addressed to me .
Mod- I see your point about guys never understating their height. However, I can only go on my own experience here. Rafa is listed at 6-1. Standing next to him he appears much taller, Steggy backs me up on this . so , for whatever reason , I am going to say he appears taller than his press release will admit. I imagine he has grown a little since it was put out 3 or 4 years ago.
Highpockets- Missie ( my daughter) met Rafa briefly on two separate occasions at IW. First , he was surrounded by kids getting autographs, He was most accomodating to them. He was leaving before she could get him to sign , and she called out to him. He heard her, saw her standing there surrounded by little kids - smiled and returned specifically for her. They only said hello - but she said his smile was very cute.
The second time - she was among a group watching a practice session . He was with Feli- practicing for doubles. The two of them lingered on the courts in the back , and walked over to where Verdasco was practicing. Somehow , they avoided a huge crowd . She said she followed over to the other court and called out in Spanish, that it was her birthday and would like to get a picture. Rafa stared at her and she repeated her request. He ran to her- said something to the effect that "blonde American girl speak Spanish " then proceeded to talk rapidly to take the picture before the crowds caught up - he wished her happy birthday, put his arms around her, bent down so they are cheek to cheek and we snapped the picture. Then he ran off - away from the approaching crowd. Feli then decided he should pose for a picture as well, and so did Verdasco - she was completely stunned by all the attention. The encounter was very brief- but he was very sweet and friendly. As I have said - it helps to be young and beautiful - the boys do give her some attention that way. Needless to say - she was floating on a cloud the rest of the day -

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 11:19 AM

Beth,


Rafa always appears as a cute likeable dude-but I couldn't develop a man crush here-sorry Rafa-hot sweaty dudes aren't my thing

Posted by Sam 05/14/2007 at 11:28 AM

"I live in a suburb of NYC called New Jersey."

You mean North Jersey. South Jersey is a suburb of Philly. :-)

Posted by Beth 05/14/2007 at 11:30 AM

jac - can understand - he does not appeal to my husband or my son in that way either - but to Missie's 16 year old heart - he is the man of her dreams- ( and he did not seem to object)

Posted by jac 05/14/2007 at 11:31 AM

Hey Sam,

How was your sister's commencement?

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 11:34 AM

central jersey. maybe we are an autonomous area.

Posted by Snoo Foo 05/14/2007 at 11:37 AM

pfft, in your dreams.

Posted by Sam 05/14/2007 at 11:37 AM

jac: It was nice, and thankfully it was a nice day out since it was held outdoors. I was the photographer, since my parents are not digital camera savvy. My Dad used to be good with the SLR cameras, but his eyesight is pretty bad these days and he needs to have surgery.

Posted by highpockets 05/14/2007 at 11:43 AM

Jac, always good to know what another tribe member looks like when we chat with you.

Beth, thanks for the sweet stories about you and Missy and Rafael in IW. I really want to get my tush down there next year.

So here's the plan. I go IW in '08 and bring with me a gorgeous young girl/woman who speaks Spanish and who's having a birthday that week. Then when Rafa goes to hug said gorgeous young girl/woman, I step between them at the last minute so I can have my picture taken with an enraged and sweaty Rafel Nadal. :)

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 11:43 AM

Yeah I didnt think so.
I'd prefer to be a suburb of NYC really. I dont think I can handle philly's humid subtropical climate at my age.


Posted by Beth 05/14/2007 at 11:50 AM

High- sounds like a good plan- just get there next year! Missie and I are planning to go back - we could have fun.
off to play a match right now - back later.

Posted by highpockets 05/14/2007 at 12:07 PM

Beth, would love to meet you and Missy and Pete and Steggy and Ray and whoever else goes next year. That would be so much fun!

Posted by highpockets 05/14/2007 at 12:11 PM

Forgot to say hi to Tennis_Smiles, who has emerged from lurk status. Welcome!

Posted by Sam 05/14/2007 at 12:13 PM

"philly's humid subtropical climate "

LOL, ptenisnet. I think where you are is more connected to NYC anyway, in terms of sports rooting interests.

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 12:16 PM

Interesting you should say that. Because of Rutgers, both philly teams and nyc teams are fairly well represented.

All those whackos with their Hoagies and their Jimmies and their "go eagles" war cries.

Posted by Snoo Foo 05/14/2007 at 12:18 PM

oy and the raily tails

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 12:22 PM

what in the world is a "raily tail"?

Posted by Sam 05/14/2007 at 12:22 PM

Hmm, when I was at Rutgers, I sensed more of a NYC bias.

That's right, Hoagies and Jimmies, not subs and sprinkles(?)! Are you trying to say Eagles fans are nuts? Well, I guess some of us are. :-)

Posted by 05/14/2007 at 12:24 PM

this blog is so boring now

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 12:26 PM

It's all a matter of perspective sam. Nothing I havent seen in a rational, pleasant discussion between TMF and Rafa fans.

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 12:28 PM

We have a Bring Your Own Entertainment policy.

Posted by Sam 05/14/2007 at 12:34 PM

You got it, ptenisnet.

You beat me to the Bring Your Own Entertainment policy comment.

Posted by Snoo Foo 05/14/2007 at 12:36 PM

raily tail = rally towel

Posted by Maplesugar 05/14/2007 at 12:58 PM

Is it me...or is it starting to feel like high school all over again around here?

On another matter: Did the "authorities" award kolya any of those WM badges? IMHO, he deserves at least 20 of them! His match against Nadal was the most thrilling of the tournament.

Posted by Sherlock 05/14/2007 at 01:01 PM

BYOE. Brilliant. :)

I'm not sure, Maplesugar. I have trouble remembering what last week felt like, much less high school. :)

Posted by Jenn 05/14/2007 at 01:02 PM

El Cap just went up a break in the second set and Massu just slammed his racket to the clay 3 times in a row! (yet didn't break it). The guy is PISSED.

Posted by Tim 05/14/2007 at 01:03 PM

Samantha, im rolling in the aisles right now re your 'crush' comment... i think you've missed a very essential fact about me and my 'type' shall we say! lol ...

lils, if youre out there, help me out, ok? you know, the Rock Hudson, Doris Day type love we have for each other :)

Posted by Snoo Foo 05/14/2007 at 01:05 PM

maplesugar, kolya got at least 16 wmbs, by my count.

Posted by Tim 05/14/2007 at 01:07 PM

good God so Fed plays Juan Monaco?? is he another terror in wating? i have never heard of him ...

i see Fed today was making excuses for his losses, which i dont like ... well, one excuse, the blisters in IW ... but a coachless Fed is a dangerous Fed! I figured he just outgrew Tony, and they never saw each other, and cmon, the guy is 62 years old, they cant exactly work out together at the level Fed needs...

again, I say a positive, totally... anything was better than what was going on, and can Fed dump that darn red shirt??

Posted by Maplesugar 05/14/2007 at 01:08 PM

Sherlock---thanks for the giggle! I can relate to that!

Great, snoo foo--I know we're not alone. Kolya's such a great, great player. I'm glad he was able to shine.

Posted by Tim 05/14/2007 at 01:09 PM

wait, didnt Fed win the AO with the new racquet?? or am i wrong? when did he switch? ugh, this whole thing is just baffling, he was riding so high, so long, so beautifully ...

come back to us Fed, come back!

Posted by highpockets 05/14/2007 at 01:10 PM

Ok, guys ... here's my latest limerick:

Here’s to the Tribe at tennis.com
Laden with spirited snark and aplomb.
I must say I’m hooked on all of the drama,
And who cares if anyone uses a comma.

The great game of tennis is of course our uniter,
And it can also be said to be our divider.
We will argue and rant and get pretty derisive,
But many who post here are bright and incisive.
Still, we do love our tennis, the best of all sports,
Where all of our issues are solved on the courts.

The captain is Pete who provides ammunition
For all of our comments to come to fruition.
There’s Snoo Foo, who circumvents all of the fluff,
And Steggy, who knows when to call us on stuff
There’s Zola, the kind-hearted warrior extreme,
Andrew, the playwright, and Samantha, the queen.

Our master of irony is Ptenisnet,
And Tokyo Tom, does he drive a Corvette?
There’s Ryan and Jenn and dear Juan Jose,
Who’s courting Amy Lu down Ecuador way.
There’s Tim, who does keep us all on our toes,
And Lucy, whose badges soothe all of our woes.

There’s FoT and Sam and Sir Ray Stonada,
Their knowledge of tennis blows us outa the watah.
There’s clever Mrs. Santa, with drama and flair,
And Rosangel, whose analysis always seems fair.
There’s Sherlock, who loves to banter with Tim,
And Codepoke, who keeps us from getting too grim.

And then we have Beth, our lovely earth mother,
And Mici, who makes us both think and take cover.
There’s Jac, who seems to have a thing for Tari,
And there’s Patrick and Ruth, Mariej and Carrie.

Some names were not mentioned in this little ditty,
But that’s not to say you are any less witty,
Or worthy, dynamic, smart or impressive,
Or touchy, defensive, intense or aggressive.

And that’s just what makes us such a great bunch,
And I’d love it if we could all chill and do lunch.

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 01:12 PM

Monaco won a clay court tournie in argentina didnt he?

Of course kolya gets WMBs.

Posted by Tim 05/14/2007 at 01:14 PM

mici, where's mici??

Posted by Sam 05/14/2007 at 01:15 PM

highpockets: Well done! How are you feeling?

"... i think you've missed a very essential fact about me and my 'type' shall we say! "

LOL, Tim!

I believe Lucy doled out numerous WMBs for Koyla this weekend. Well deserved.

Posted by highpockets 05/14/2007 at 01:15 PM

Perhaps my line re Samantha should have said "Samantha, the teen," but I wanted to call her "princess" and "queen" seemed the next best thing.

Posted by highpockets 05/14/2007 at 01:17 PM

Doing great, Sam ... healing beautifully ... I'm scheduling my next surgery for right after FO.

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 01:22 PM

Man, I missed the whole awarding of wmbs to kolya.
Maybe lucy will agree to a reenactment of the awarding ceremony?

And this we shall add to our collection of dockets
submitted by our poet mistress, highpockets.

Posted by Snoo Foo 05/14/2007 at 01:23 PM

awesome hps! best line: "And Mici, who makes us both think and take cover." Amen!

Posted by Sherlock 05/14/2007 at 01:26 PM

You're most welcome, Maplesugar. Sad, but true, isn't it? :) Good to see you here, too. Seems like it's been a while, but maybe I'm all wet with that. It's been known to happen. Shut up, Tim. :)

Highpockets, absolutely incredible! You are brilliant beyond description! Beyond Ptenisnet, even. Sorry, buddy. :)

Posted by highpockets 05/14/2007 at 01:26 PM

"And this we shall add to our collection of dockets
submitted by our poet mistress, highpockets."

Thanks, Ptenis ... that was wonderful!

Snoo, that was my favorite line too.

Posted by patrick 05/14/2007 at 01:30 PM

Highpockets,
Good limerick on The Tribe.

Posted by Beckham 05/14/2007 at 01:36 PM

*good God so Fed plays Juan Monaco?? is he another terror in wating? i have never heard of him*

Tim: lol...you can't think like that as a Fed KAD...in my mind Fed is going to give Monaco a beat down...lol...as for the red shirt God help us but that shirt had better be in a dumpster somewhere...lol

Posted by .com 05/14/2007 at 01:37 PM

"good God so Fed plays Juan Monaco?? is he another terror in wating? i have never heard of him ..."


Tim, these are some players defeated by Monaco (on clay):

2007- Monfils, Moya, Starace, Almagro

2006- Verdasco, Tursunov, Del Potro, Chela

2005- Ferrer, Andreev, Soderling, Costa

Posted by Maplesugar 05/14/2007 at 01:52 PM

Hey, Sherlock...I'm an irregular regular during the week--and usually just within a few hours' window. I wish I could be here more often.

I'd love to see a re-enactment of kolya's award ceremony, as I missed it also.

Posted by Snoo Foo 05/14/2007 at 01:57 PM

Why doesn't some celebrity self-help guru, like Dr. Phil or Sanjay Gupta or Suze Ormond or that Cesar Millan or Dog the Bounty Hunter (ok, so I don't actually know any celebrity self-help gurus, but I'm aware of their existence) volunteer to help El Gato? It could be a TTC reality show, like Intervention or saving Tom Sizemore or Breaking Bonaduce.

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 01:57 PM

Although this probably fits the "Obscure" montage.

Posted by Ruth 05/14/2007 at 02:00 PM

Another winner, highpockets! And a nice way to start the week. BTW, I'm sometimes curious about the origins of people's commenter names. Have you ever told us why you're "highpockets"?

Where's Sanja? I wanted to tell her (and Ray) that I'm continuing my exploration of the wonderful neighborhoods of New York with a trip to Queens tomorrow...along with many of the same folk who did Harlem, the Bronx, and Brooklyn last year.

I think that one of our stops will be at the neighborhood close to (one subway stop after) the USTABJKNTC which people always suggest that my tennis buddy and I visit during our annual USO trips. But we usually head straight for tennis and spend our time only on tennis.

Posted by Sam 05/14/2007 at 02:03 PM

ptenistnet: I think the Koyla WMBs were doled out in the Rome Crisis Center 5/13 thread, last night.

highpockets: That's great to hear.

Posted by ptenisnet 05/14/2007 at 02:03 PM

You mean like "Gaston Rehinged" or "Gaston's Guidio".

*yawn* "Morning" everyone. Funny limerick, pockets.

Is there another bwin.com stream this time?

Oh, THAT guy. Seems like a real, um, piece of work.

Highpockets,

you are great as always...I think this is the only tribe in the world with the luxury of having a resident Poet!

***Tony - a reluctant traveler at best, has decided the changes did not work and instead of having problems with Rafa on clay, Fed is having problems with lots of guys on all surfaces. ***

I just loved this part...

and hey Jac,
You are so young and handsome!


And

why no WMB's for Rafa? he just won his 21st title, 77th match on clay and beat Gonzo after the marathon on Saturday, not to mention that he won 3 events consecutively for 3 years....and he is not even 21!

"why no WMB's for Rafa?"

Like Fed, he has raised the bar so high that it is difficult for him to earn WMBs.

Although gaston probably needs a cat whisperer.

Thanks for all the compliments everyone.

Ruth, I was dubbed "highpockets" a long time ago by an old boyfriend because I have really long legs. We had a CB radio for coordinating travel with friends and that was my "handle". Anyway, it stuck.

pfft, forget all that, he should get one for knowing that it's all right to feel things though the feelings may be strange.

Sam, I agree. Rafa has earned his WMB this week for sure.
