Re: |||| Dudi Sela :: }}

Yep but now he plays Radek and I don;t have high hopes. Dudi how about proving me wrong. Get past the junk and pass him well And don't let his antics on court or on the sidelines get to you

No go. Lost to Stepa 6-3 6-1
Nice run for the week though

DelPotro:Ferrer:Gulbis:M&M

Dudi racked up 200 points in Memphis by reaching the semis. We'll see him ranked up at 65 on Monday.

Philipp Petzschner is Dudi's first round opponent in Delray Beach.

I don't see any reason why Dudi in his present form shouldn't proceed to second round. He might play vs Gulbis there.

Re: |||| Dudi Sela :: }}

nice run in Memphis, nice to see him doing his best from the draw
Sorry about the one sided loss to Stepanek, but those wins will come
Best of luck in Derlay beach, the draw is very tough. Dudi must forget about Memphis and start concentrating about the new tourney right away. Good luck

Dudi

Marcos Baghdatis is next. Being torn between two faves, I do hope for an interesting match.

Marcos played such a crappy tennis today, but Gulbis played even crappier...

Dudi lost 7-6(7) 6-3 to Marcos.

I thought it was a good match. Beautiful shots from both players in the 1st set. First set was a toss and the emotional tie-break took a lot out of Dudi...

I agree. Both classy players to watch Some of Dudi's backhands down the line I thought Dudi was toast when he was broken for the second time in the first set but yes that TB took too much out of him.

Now onto to Davis Cup. That's a whole nother story

Israeli tennis player Dudi Sela defeats Swedish opponent at Davis Cup

Last update - 02:48 07/03/2009

Israeli tennis player Dudi Sela outlasted Andreas Vinciguerra 4-6, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 11-9 to pull Israel level with Sweden in a Davis Cup tie played in a near-empty stadium heavily guarded by police on Friday.

Thomas Johansson returned from injury to beat another Israeli player Harel Levy 6-7 (3), 6-4, 7-5, 4-6, 8-6 in the opening match.

City officials banned spectators, saying they feared disruptions by activists protesting Israel's offensive in Gaza, a decision that was criticized by both teams as well as the International Tennis Federation. Few protesters showed up. Thousands are expected on Saturday.

A few dozen special guests were allowed inside the 4,000-seat Baltic Hall, depriving the Swedes of the raucous backing that home teams normally enjoy at Davis Cup ties. The loudest cheers came from a handful of Israel fans from London, who found a way around the ban.

"We managed to get invited as special guests of the Israeli team," said Jonathan Stoller, 26. "We didn't want to come all the way to Malmo without watching tennis."

Sela said it was disappointing to play before rows of empty seats in the
desolate arena, but added: "It was nice that there were some supporters at least."

He proved the strongest in a marathon baseline battle with Vinciguerra. The Swede saved a match point at 5-4 before breaking Sela's serve to keep the match alive in the final set.

But at 9-9, Vinciguerra double-faulted and volleyed into the net to give Sela the decisive break. The Israeli held his serve to level the tie at 1-1 heading into the doubles on Saturday.

Johansson had been out of action since October because of a foot injury, and his lack of practice showed in the opening match. The 2002 Australian Open champion made 65 unforced errors - 20 in the first set.

After dropping the first set in a tiebreaker, Johansson rebounded in the next two sets but lost his momentum with a flurry of unforced errors in the fourth.

The final set turned into a thriller as the players stayed level until 6-6.
Johansson broke Levy's serve and held his own to put the hosts ahead.

"I'm completely exhausted. I emptied everything I had," Johansson said with his left foot wrapped in ice.

Outside the tightly guarded arena, a small group of demonstrators held up a Palestinian flag and signs saying Stop the match. Police said the protest was peaceful.

"I think Malmo should have stopped the match completely, but to play in an empty arena is a half victory," protester Oscar Schon told The Associated Press.

It was the second time a Davis Cup tie was played without fans in Sweden. In 1975, two years after a military coup in Chile led by Augusto Pinochet, Sweden played Chile in an empty stadium.
