Since nobody has opened this yet, I'm gonna start by saying that I'm going right now to see Hanescu vs Youzhny. It's a 10 minute walk from where I work. Gonna let you know the details. :gleam:

Hope Hanescu plays well, for once (I assume you're backing him). He tends to lose in R1 but at least made it to R2 this year.
 
Enjoy yourself!  :))

Eh, couldn't stay more than the first set because the match started a bit later than I predicted (Mayer's match took a bit longer). Hane is playing really well here and the crowd is cheering for him pretty enthusiastically. I could feel that many people have come today just to see him in action. It was an entertaining atmosphere. :)

Goffin had a pretty decent chance here. His second set was unbelievably good. Constantly putting Mayer on the defense and forcing him into a corner, than changing the side seemed to produce great results. It's too bad that he couldn't keep it in the third set. The crowd was getting impatient too, so when Mayer took the advantage they were cheering for him because they wanted the match to end faster.

Hanescu won 6-4 6-3. Slasher, is he as intimidating live as he is on TV?  :)) One of my favorite trick shots was hit by Hanescu.

Couldn't see much of him from where I was standing on top of the stands, but he looked intimidating enough. Much bigger than how you see him on TV. I don't think that he's more intimidating than Tsonga though. He's a monster. :))

Bucharest - Thursday's Action


The Bucharest tournament has done a very good job with video. They have clips of each day of action.

Also, great run for Rosol.  :cool: I never thought he would be so good on clay

Rosol in his first final tomorrow. The oppponent is Garcia-Lopez. Hopefully Rosol wins even though I'm afraid I don't have time to watch it. I have massively things to do before Tuesday, hopefully already before Monday. That being said, I gotta go now!

I wasn't expecting this final  :rofl_2: GGL and Mayer played a good match. Good luck to both opponents. I would really like to see Rosol win a title.

Rosol wins his first title. Joins Tomic and Zeballos as the first timers to win this year.  :worthy:
