He lost quite easily to Oudsema, but good job qualifying nonetheless. Good luck in the doubles Fritz.

Re: THE OFFICIAL--- Fritz Wolmarans (RSA) ---- Thread

After the Euro/Africa Zone Group II 2nd Round & Play-off matches, it is now easier to have a look at potential opponents for SA in 2008, having been promoted into Group II.

The first round of the group will see 8 ties played across the 4-6 April - and the other teams in the group are as follows:

Slovenia (lost in 2nd round)
Greece (lost in 2nd round)
Finland (lost in 2nd round)
Hungary (lost in 2nd round)
Denmark (won in Play-offs)
Ukraine (won in Play-offs)
Cyprus (won in Play-offs)
Algeria (won in Play-offs)

Egypt (promoted)
Ireland (promoted)
Tunisia (promoted)
South Africa (promoted)

Macedonia OR Luxembourg (21-23 Sept)
Portugal OR Netherlands (21-23 Sept)

The above two ties including Macedonia, Luxembourg, Portugal and the Netherlands will be played in a couple of months, and the losers will be relegated into Group II, and so will also become potential opponents for the SA boys. I would expect to see Macedonia and Portugal drop down, but you never know in DC! Anyway, some exciting prospects for matches - I have my fingers crossed for away ties against most of them, as the European destinations aren't too difficult to get to, Finland, Denmark & Cyprus look particularly appealing (plus, I would like to see Baghdatis or Nieminen play). I will report back in September, and then when the draws are made.

Re: THE OFFICIAL--- Fritz Wolmarans (RSA) ---- Thread

Wow, fantastic news! Fritz d. Stoppini at Lexington 7-6 6-4. He's should really improve his ranking with another couple of wins here. I have faith in his ability.

Bastl would be a good scalp for Fritz

Re: THE OFFICIAL--- Fritz Wolmarans (RSA) ---- Thread

Bastl d. Wolmarans 6-7 7-6 7-6. I don't know what the breaker scores were, but it definitely looks as if Fritz at least put up a huge fight. Bastl is an experienced player with some good wins in his career, and Fritz can draw some positives from this match. He's managed to pick up his play somewhat in the last 3 months.

Although a loss, I imagine a confidence booster and so Fritz will try his hand at ATP quallies again. Gelukkige!

Re: THE OFFICIAL--- Fritz Wolmarans (RSA) ---- Thread

Fritzy attempted to qualify for the Pilot Pen Open. He lost to Seppi sadly, 6-7 1-6. Good first set scoreline, he just needs to work on keeping mentally tough throughout matches, he has the game to go far.

Re: THE OFFICIAL--- Fritz Wolmarans (RSA) ---- Thread

Fritzy has both Myspace and Facebook pages. Have you tried to contact him through either of those yet?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

No, thank you. I tried searching myspace a while ago and was unable to find his profile.

Oh fantastic, thanks Fee. And it's not even private. Maybe I'll post some of those photos on here later.
