Tommy wins Sopot

Tommy won in Sopot today. He defeated Argentinean Jose Acasuso in straight sets, 7-5, 6-0. Both traded breaks twice in the first set, and Tommy had to save setpoints at 4-5 - which was also the turning point of the match. Afterwards, Acasuso had some sort of meltdown and pretty much handed Tommy the match on a silverplate. But still great tennis to watch.

Tommy Robredo winning Sopot - picspamCollapse )

So much for the picspam. Heh.

Tommy thanked Pepo and his team for everything, and he also mentioned that they had a difficult time recently with lots of early losses. He felt really happy to have won a trophy again after a bit over a year. :o)
He was really cute with the trophy, he tried to bite it. Awwww!


Holy CRAP.

Tommy went nude for Cosmo. *speechless* The photo was taken during Estoril, apparently:

The picture is behind a cut, for obvious reasons.Collapse )

... Now if you'll excuse me, there's a small river of drool I must float away on. *dies*


(P.S. Sorry for the lack of French Open updates, but I'm in the thick of finals at the moment. Rest assured once I'm done there will be much Tommy picspam and other goodness. :D)


Here's a loose translation of Tommy's blog entry from Barcelona. Keep in mind the entry is a few days old:

Date: 24 April 2007
Subject: We're Back Playing at Home!

Hello everyone,

I'm happy to be writing this time from my tournament, as it's always special to play at home - first because it's my club and family and friends who normally can't come to see my matches can attend, and second because it is a tournament where I've recently been doing very well. After to playing my first match against Feliciano, I'm happy to have won since he is always tough to play in a first match here at home, but I felt very good and I'm already in the third round, that was the important thing today.

As all you know this year Barcelona has a new center court, different from what we were accustomed, but I've been able to try it out and it seems equally good as the one last year!

Now I leave you and I am going to eat a little... this year they've put the players' area near the swimming pool, and in the buffet we have crab legs and croquettes every day... not to mention rice! Honestly they take care of us well. Afterwards I'll return to the courts to prepare for my doubles match (with Marc Lopez) that is behind schedule. I hope to count on your support all week like every year!

Greetings,
Tommy

Youtube has a video clip from yesterday's Tommy/Calleri match. Don't watch unless you want to know what the result is:

Also, I translated a short news blurb from Tommy's website about the match:

Again, don't click here unless you want to know the results of the match.Collapse )


Tommy Video; Match Results

For anyone who's interested, Marca has a video of Tommy being interviewed in Barcelona (but know that it's in Spanish). If you have a stand-alone video player that can play .flv files (Flash video), you can use the direct download link:

http://www.marca.com/videos/07/04/070425EntrevistaRobredo.flv

...or you can just view it on the web.

Also, Marca has posted a long Tommy interview. It's also in Spanish, so if I have time I may attempt a bad translation of it later in the week. *L*

Tommy Wins Hometown Award

Tommy's official site posted news that El Punt, a Catalan newspaper, has awarded Tommy the "Gironese of the Year" award. (Tommy is from the province of Girona in Catalonia.)

Three of these awards are given out each year in the areas of sport, culture, and economy, and obviously Tommy won the sports one. ;) Tommy was awarded for his consistency, his effort, and his tenacity, and for being able to stay at the top of the rankings. Tommy couldn't be there in person to accept the award since he was in Monte Carlo, but his father Ángel accepted the award for him:



The source article is HERE.

Also, if you want to see today's match results for Tommy in Barcelona as well as some words from Tommy, they're under this cut!Collapse )


Well, the Davis Cup quarterfinal tie in Winston-Salem, North Carolina wasn't exactly the greatest thing for España - you had a super-fast court and Top 10 players Andy Roddick and James Blake in front of their home crowd, so Spain was definitely an underdog. Unfortunately Spain lost 1-4, but the positive for Tommy was that he won the single point for Spain, even if it was a dead rubber. He defeated doubles #1 Bob Bryan 6-4 6-4.

CLICK HERE to download an .mp3 of Tommy's interview right after the Bryan match from Davis Cup Radio. You can also CLICK HERE to download an .mp3 from Davis Cup Radio where Tommy and Davis Cup captain Emilio Sanchez were interviewed before the start of the quarterfinal tie.

Assorted Tommy photos from Davis Cup!Collapse )

Next up for Tommy is the Monte Carlo Masters! (Here's the draw.) He has a bye in the first round and will be facing Arnaud Clement (FRA) in the second round. If he makes it to the quarterfinal, he will most likely be facing Nikolay Davydenko (RUS). Good luck, Tommy!

P.S. As kiwirazzi mentioned in the previous post, Tommy is also blogging from Monte Carlo! Make sure to check it out! :D


Final Thoughts on Miami & Community News

First off, community news! The main thing is that I've made a new layout for the community, so check it out and let me know what you think when you can! I may continue to make a few minor changes but for the most part I think it's pretty nice the way it is. :D Also, I've linked to a keyword search index on the community's main page so that you can search old entries by specific tournaments and topics! Hope you like it. :D

And now, final thoughts on Miami.Collapse )

Next up for Tommy: Davis Cup in Winston-Salem, North Carolina against the US boys, and then back to Europe for tournaments on the sexy red clay! Great effort in Miami!


Tommy at Miami



Tommy just posted a new blog entry, but since he never updates the English version of his site (bad Tommy! *spank spank!*), I'm offering my shabby translation of the entry here. :D Apparently the doctor is having him take precautions re. the foot issues he was talking about last month. Also, whoever runs Tommy's website doesn't seem to know how to link the full-sized versions of Tommy's blog photos to the thumbnail photos displayed in the blog, so I've posted them here as well:

Blog entry and photos!Collapse )

Also, a look at Tommy's quarter of the draw in Miami!Collapse )


Two Tommy Videos and a Couple of Photos



Here are two Youtube clips of Tommy at the Copa Vilas in Buenos Aires last December.Collapse )

Also, two sexy photos! XDCollapse )

P.S. I've made a bunch of changes to the community's info page, so if you're curious check it out and let me know what you think! Does it suck? Does it rule? Should I go back to info-page-making school? ;) Feedback is welcome!


Tommy Interview Doble Cero

Tommy: "I like Roger's tennis better, but for going out to have dinner together it's Rafa without a doubt."

Tommy interviewed for the March 2007 edition of Doble Cero, a Spanish entertainment mag. Badly translated interview and large pretty photo beneath the cut!Collapse )

Also for those who want it here is Tommy's 2006 Hamburg blog.


Vamos Tommy!!

Tommy won his singles today v. Sanguinetti 6-2, 6-2. He was in cruise control the entire match, completely kicking the Italian's ass That's what you get for getting a WC in Rome, Sanguinetti. Tommy won the entire match in only 53 minutes.

Next he plays the winner of Moya/Mathieu in the semis. His shoulder must feel alright because he is playing super well!


Good news.

Good news all! Tommy does not have to play qualifying in Estoril. Ferrero got into the maindraw, so Tommy inherited Juanqui's wildcard.

Some of the other players who are supposed to play in Estoril are: Agustin Calleri, Juan Ignacio Chela, Gaston Gaudio, Joachim Johansson, Feliciano Lopez, Alberto Martin, Nicolas Massu, Carlos Moya, Juan Carlos Ferrero and Alex Corretja.

Buena suerte Tommy!

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20
ROBREDO: “I KNOW IT WAS DIFFICULT TO DEFEND THE TITLE”
Defending champion Tommy Robredo was ousted from Open SEAT Godo 2005 by countryman Alberto Martín, who defeated him 6-1 6-4. Robredo knew that defending the title would be difficult after some week out of competition because of an injury. “After one month without competition, losing was a normal thing, besides Beto played very well and I didn’t feel so well. I know that winning the tournament would be difficult, it was not my goal. I only expected to play and to compete again”.
In spite of losing, Robredo feels that he is ready to play well again, he is trying to get a will card for next week at the Estoril event: “I trained a lot and now I need to play matches”.
