The Navratilanchez-Vicario thread

Can't believe there's not one of these already...where are all you old-timers?!

I hope to get to see some of their matches later in the week, Dominguez/Llagostera up tomorrow. They're a competent pair but nothing special (even if they are two of my favourite players), here's hoping Martina's back is a bit better and that ASV's been training with Sveta

Any word on mixed doubles for either player yet?

Jon, I hope you do get to see them play because that would mean they are still in the tournament

It's a nice surprise though to see ASV play here. I had kind of stopped looking at doubles draws at the beginning of events now just to check. I hope she plays mixed as well. She may as well while she is there. No huges expectations considering ASV hasn't played since Bali and Martina's not played much this year but hopefully their experience will get them through tomorrow anyway.

Vamos

Raquel I was doing exactly the same thing, wasn't checking doubles draws anymore cuz I didn't expect to find her. But I searched for her bio on RG website and nothing came up so I'm surprised to find out she is competing. I'm over the moon though ! I hope it goes better than with Anabel at Wimbledon, I was on court 3 for that one and it was painful.

GOOOOOOOO ARANTXA AND MARTINA!!!!

Hey Bea, I trust we'll have our usually accidental meeting at Wimby this year !

they have a combined age of a dinosour it seems.
but i hope the dino takes the trophy

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Ooooo so great to see Arantxa in the draw!! YAY!

Time for these legends to show the meddling kids a thing or two

Bea hope you get to see them! Naturally they will win just for you.... <gibbering bitterly and full of jealousy in the corner>

It's one-set all at the moment... 46 63...Why isn't there a nail-biting smiley?

No ASV in the mixed doubles draw, unfortunately, but Martina's playing with Paes again.

I'm following it on the scoreboard too Jon. I just hope they don't get called off for bad light soon as they have the momentum. They never held Martina's serve once in the first set but seem to be more solid in the second set. Vives/Lino had a point for 4-4 I think so they did well to break at 4-3.

I know, the worst thing is that they moved it to Chatrier, but still it's not on

I hate following scores online...there's such a long wait between points

the structure of broadcast is worse and worse, there are dozens of dramatical matches, right now legends of world tennis history are playing and still nothing....
I wonder what else they want.....

Thank God they broke back straight away otherwise it might have slipped away quickly. Huge difference between 2-3 and 1-4. Arantxa serving now and they have held her games quite often.
