Andreas Haider-Maurer Cheering Thread

I hope i'm not the only fan of Haider-Maurer. I saw him play last week and got the guy's autograph, i'm a fan for life.
Andreas is playing in Britain this week. Today he faces Rehnquist. Go Andreas
Here's a link to his website, unfortunately it's only in German http://www.haider-maurer.at/.
He is only 20 and is currently ranked number 243, his highest ever ranking. I think he has the game to get into the top 100 before too long.

Re: The Andreas Haider-Maurer Cheering Thread

I hope some day to get to see him play. I try to follow all the Austrian players and have noticed him rising in the rankings in Austria.
Are you also a fan of other Austrians?

I do like the Austrian players, particularly Fischer and also Melzer. Paszek in the women's side. But mainly, i'm a follower of Andreas.

Andreas lost today to Rehnquist it doesn't really surprise me. Hopefully he can do a lot better next tournament.

Yes, in Dusseldorf he beat Zib, Meffert, Lopez (Marc) and Darcis on his way to the final there.

I'm not sure where he's playing next, but as soon as i find out i'll post

Re: The Andreas Haider-Maurer Cheering Thread

It seems that he prefers to be called Andy as that's how he signed his name in his e-mail to me and that's what Fischer and Sandbichler seemed to call him .
He says there's a chance that he may come back to Glasgow next year

Re: The Andreas Haider-Maurer Cheering Thread

Andy lost 6-4 6-0 in Tunisia to Lammer. He also lost his doubles match (he was playing with Martin Fischer) in a champions tie break.

Hope he does better in his next tournament.

Andreas Haider-Maurer AUT def. Chu-Huan Yi TPE [WC] 6-2 6-4
Next up for Andy will probably be Udomchoke. He can do it

I hope he keeps on winning. He seems like a fine young man and should do well.

Re: The Andreas Haider-Maurer Cheering Thread

Andy lost 7-6 6-1 to Udomchoke. He seems to get beaten in the 2nd set of matches easily much too often

Re: The Andreas Haider-Maurer Cheering Thread

When the first set is so close I think after they lose it, they become discouraged insteead of realizing they really have a chance to win. He will have to realize that losing a first close set means he just needs to fight a little harder and win.
What I just wrote applies to all tennis players and not just Andy.

Yep, good call and the sooner he gets that mentality the better.
Still, even when he wins the 1st set the 2nd can be a disaster
