The ASV/Mary cheering thread!

Very surprising to see Arantxa not playing with Anabel (anybody know why?). But, Mary and Arantxa have a long history together, and their both great doubles players.

VAMOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We Will Always Remember Arantxa!!! A legend forever and always!

Visit http://www.ludorock.com Ludo is the next big band!!!

Just curious (as I have no memory cells left, you see!) when did they play together? I remember only the time they signed up together at SC (1997-?) and *both* of them got sick before they ever played a match! Also I remember the Arthur Ashe event. What else?

Well anyway, VAMOS Aranchita and have fun with your return to tennis!

Hi marsha and JasonW! I looked in Arantxa's stats and I only found the following

Hilton Head 1998
partnering Mary PIERCE (FRA)
32 W RUBIN (USA) / TESTUD (FRA) 6-2 6-2
16 L LUGINA (UKR) / MONTALVO (ARG) W/O

Hey Bea!

I'm very happy to see you here on the board again-- thanks for these stats!

So then it was SC 1998, not 1997! And they did play one round then -- hmmm..... I just don't remember that at all, although I was there... I do know that Mary got the stomach flu --AND-- Arantxa had hurt some part of her leg or ankle or something and had lost in the first round in singles (against Glass, I think). So she immediately flew back to Spain and pulled out of Amelia Island. Being heartbroken, oh yes that I do remember.... **ironic_lol**

Good luck Arantxa and Mary

The online scoreboard is now working so we can follow live scores for the match

This link should work Marsha -

http://www.content.german-open.org/c...score2004.html

If it does not work, on the actual site there is a menu on the left of the homepage. Click on 'Ergebnisse' which is the second option down and another little menu opens. Click on 'Spielstand (Real-Time)' for the scoreboard

Thanks for the heads-up Raquel! I was looking around, but the live scoreboard drashed a few times -- I see it now tho! I'd've been screwed without you today Raquel! Thanks sooo much!

PS -- Are you planning to go to Wimbie this year??
PPS -- I think I'll start a Live Scores thread just for their match if you or someone will join me -- the other thread is just tooooo long.
