Rui MacHado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

Yes, I know Machado is not Scottish, and it's a play on his last name.

He had a good season this year and should be able to make the top 100 in 2010 barring injury, which impacted on his progress towards the end of 2009.

He won a couple of challengers in Meknes and Athens, plus he made the 2nd round of Roland Garros and lost to Crazy Koellerer in the first round of the US Open.

Machado is on the list for the AO qualies, hope he can play it and make the MD.



On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

These pics were taken by Snoo Foo, so all credit goes to her. These were taken at the US Open.

The Scotsman plays the racist Brydan Klein tomorrow, hope he can take out the piece of rubbish.

Klein was getting very pissed off as well.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Rui MaChado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

Rui is back on the clay and playing qualies in Costa da Sauipe.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Rui MaChado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

After Del Bonis and Kirche now it's time to beat Pashanski.

PS: Not so funny the title thread. But it should be MacHado, as it shows in the ATP LiveScores.

Re: Rui MaChado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

Ad Wim, stop whining already.

We have the Machado posting here and yes he needs to beat big bad Pashanski.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Rui MacHado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

Rui made the main draw taking out the big crazy Pashanski 6-1 5-0 and then Boris retires.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
