Hi Andrew ,

how are you doing?

I saw Jeff on the way from the one court to the other at Wimbledon, remembered you and took two photos for you.
I hope you like them.

Re: Jeff Coetzee Thread

Found this small piece regarding the SA Davis Cup tie vs Latvia - even though Jeff will not play - I thought it is relevant:

Quote:
Contrast that to a tiny announcement that snuck in under the radar this week about the South African Davis Cup team to play Latvia in July.
There was a time when the announcement of every Davis Cup team was accompanied by an official function and some fanfare. This time there was just a bald, 10-line item noting the fact and the names of the South African players.

One suspects the tennis authorities accepted that they did not have much chance for good publicity for their announcement, with such an abundance of other sport around.

Who, after all, would be particularly interested in SA versus Latvia in the second division of the Euro-Africa zone of the Davis Cup? So they probably decided it was better to just save the money that might be spent on a big function, and keep the announcement down to the bare minimum. For some, it’s a sad state of affairs. But that is the way it is and is probably going to stay.

Re: Jeff Coetzee Thread

South Africa's number one tennis player Wesley Moodie will not be in the starting line-up for their crucial Europe/Africa Zone Group II Davis Cup tie against Latvia from July 21 to 23.



The tie will take place in Jurmala, Latvia, and will be played outdoors on red clay. The winner of this tie will remain in Group II next year, the loser will be relegated to Europe/Africa Zone Group III in 2007.

The tie will be played during the American hard court season, the main build-up events to the US Open at the end of August, and Moodie has opted to play those tournaments.

So in his absence, Rik de Voest, ranked 137 in singles, will lead the team and joining him will be youngsters Kevin Anderson, Izak van der Merwe and Fritz Wolmarans while the experience will come from veteran doubles specialist Chris Haggard.

John-Laffnie de Jager will once again captain the team.

Anderson was a member of the squad that played in Morocco while Van der Merwe participated in the tie earlier this year against Georgia.

Wolmarans, who is now being coached by former SA top 30 player Marcos Ondruska, was included as a non-playing member of the squad that played against Slovakia at the Wanderers in Johannesburg in 2004.

Haggard has played in three Davis Cup ties and has built up a 3-1 win/loss record. His only defeat came in the tie against Slovakia at the Wanderers when Jeff Coetzee unfortunately was injured in the opening set. Despite Coetzee virtually hobbling around the court, the pair still managed to put up a superb display before losing to Dominik Hrbaty and Michal Mertinak 5-7 5-7 6-7(5-7).

Only six names appear on the ATP Tour rankings for Latvia with Ernest Gulbis, at 278, being their highest ranked player.

The other players with rankings are Andis Juska (478), Deniss Pavlovs (720), Adrians Zguns (1276), Janis Skroderis and Karlis Lejnieks, who with just one point, are ranked joint 1529.
A shame Wes will not be playing - but I guess it's not beneficial for him to do so. Hopefully the other boys can keep SA in Group II for 2007. A loss would mean SA relegated to Group III - basically the black hole, removed from the face of tennis!

Re: Jeff Coetzee Thread

Jeff & Justin's match has been held over until today due to rain yesterday. They will hopefully play second match on Court 1 from 11am, again after an appropriate rest, as Justin has to finish his singles match.

In other news, the SA Davis Cup team has been selected to play Latvia and it is as follows:
- Rik de Voest
- Izak Van Der Merwe
- Fritz Wolmarans
- Chris Haggard
They will again be captained by Laffies

Latvia
Ernest Gulbis (ATP #278)
Andis Juska (#478)
Deniss Pavlovs (#720)
Karlis Lejnieks (#1529)
Captain: Maris Rozentals

I would expect just Gulbis & Juska to play all singles & doubles.

Re: Jeff Coetzee Thread

More rain = no tennis. Boo.

First match on Court 2 at 2pm Jeff & Justin will play - should they win, they'll have to play their QF against Igor Kunitsyn (RUS)/ Danai Udomchoke (THA) on the same court, not before 4pm.

Re: Jeff Coetzee Thread

Match 1. (R1) Coetzee/Gimelstob [3] d Butorac/Drake 64 64

Match 2. (QF) Coetzee/Gimelstob [3] d Kunitsyn/Udomchoke61 62

Match 3. (SF) Coetzee/Gimelstob [3] vs Rik de Voest/Lukasz Kubot

Jeff and Justin will play their semi on Court 1, not before 5.30pm today. A win would see them in tomorrow's final, which will be televised live, against Kendrick/Melzer or Fisher/Healey. Jeff and Justin are now the only seeds that remain in the draw.

Re: Jeff Coetzee Thread

Jeff is making his first appearance on Center court today, since he and Justin yesterday beat de Voest/Kubot 6-4, 6-4 to progress to the final where they play the wildcard team of Robert Kendrick & Jurgen Melzer. Justin is also in the singles final which starts at 2pm today - the doubles proceeds this, presumably with a reasonable break for Justin.

Ahead of Indy, the draw has been made and Jeff & Dominik Hrbay are seeded 4. They face the US pairing of Bobby Reynolds & Andy Roddick, in the first round.

This is Jeff's best career result at Newport, and his 8th career ATP final. He is aiming for his first ATP title since 2002 - his fourth title overall.

Re: Jeff Coetzee Thread

Indianapolis: Jeff & Dominik start on Monday at 7pm - the first match on Center court of the night session. Hopefully this will not be too onerous on his body, since he has been playing all week this week (Newport singles quallies then doubles) - and a final followed by first round at the following tournament.

Jim Thomas - Max Mirnyi - Jordan Kerr - Rohan Bopanna - Andy Roddick - Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi - Ilia Bozoljac - Chris Haggard - Jan-Michael Gambill - Donald Young - Nathan Healey - Lleyton Hewitt - Jamie Murray - Olivier Rochus - James Blake - Vince Spadea - Tim Henman - John Isner - Travis Parrott - Paul Goldstein - Tim Henman - Wes Moodie - Arnaud Clement - Michael Russell - Jeff Coetzee

Re: Jeff Coetzee Thread

Despite being a break up late in the first set, Jeff and Justin were unable to close it out, and lost 6-7(3), 0-6 to Kendrick/Melzer. This is obviously disappointing, as Jeff could've taken a lot of confidence from this, and instead start in Indianapolis on a slightly negative note. Obviously, there are ranking points, and prize money to be taken into account, but nonetheless, one more win really would have been the icing on the cake.

A bit of a sad night to be honest, particularly as Justin came away empty handed It will now be a hurry to get to Indy for tomorrow's match.
