Aww, I like Andre. I am sad that he lost so soon after his win over Haas. But Andre...I don't know how much he has left in him to play against the younger guys.

But Jurgen's win over Andre yesterday was a great win for him. I saw Jurgen play at the US-Austria Davis Cup in Connecticut earlier this year and I really liked what I saw---not just his looks but he's got great game, too. And I don't mind that he gets mad at himself, it's only human nature; I like the edginess to him.

Good luck to Jurgen in his match against Kiwi tonight. I like both players, so I'll root for both but I think Jurgen will have his work cut out for him---Kiwi has turned out to be the new hardcourt king this summer.

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

Re: Tennis Austria

damn, that loss of Jürgen to Spadea was a real desaster

Jürgen looked so disappointed in his interview, he said he couldn't find any rhythm at all due the difficult wind condiditons and Spadea was by far the better player with these conditions.

That's really a sad loss for him

Re: Tennis Austria

Jurgen is playing Joachim Johansson at Long Island (main draw).
Stefan plays Gilles Elseneer in the second round after 'defeating' Thierry Ascione 7-5 after he retired with Gastroenteritis .

There's a possibility that the two Austrians could play each other in the second round, if Stefan has to play David Ferrer in the first round !

Re: Tennis Austria

Boris Becker continued his love affair with Austria by scooping his third successive title at the Delta Tour of Champions event in Graz. The German saved 10 break points to defeat local-hero Thomas Muster 6-2, 6-4 in the final, and enter the 2004 Stanford Financial Champions Tour Rankings at No.3. This was Becker’s first appearance on the Delta Tour of Champions this year, but he looked anything but rusty, going through the entire tournament unbeaten.

yeah, that was really quite impressive what Boris did there. I even saw a few matches of this tournament in full length on TV.
Boris played quite well and even though I also like the Austrians when I was younger because I've witnesses so many good Muster, Skoff & Co matches I wanted Boris to take it and he proved again that it's too hard for Muster to beat him on any fast surface.

I also posted a thread about Becker's two time defended Senior Tour title on GM, but it just got one response. Anyway, at least I wanted to try letting people know what's going on
Senior Tour: Boris Becker still shows his class! 3 titles in Graz (Austria) in a row!

Post Re: Tennis Austria

Jurgen wins, 1-6, 6-3, 6-3.
Monday, August 23, 2004 - By Michael R. Sisak

Todd Martin, the lanky, gray-trimmed former United States Open champion, withered in the cool Commack breeze after burning through the opening set of his first round match with Jurgen Melzer, of Austria, at the TD Waterhouse Cup, Monday night.

Martin, 34, opened the match with two consecutive aces and snatched the first set in 28 minutes, 6-1. The momentum quickly evaporated. Martin went down a break point in the second set, broke back, then lost serve again -- a pattern of defeat repeated again in the third set as Melzer took both frames, 6-3.

"I intended to play more tournaments to prepare myself for the U.S. Open," said Martin, who took the U.S. Open title in 1999. "This tournament was good enough to give me a wild card, so I will have had some competition before next week."

The loss pushed Martin's season singles record to 10-14 and continued a downward spiral that has prompted him to contemplate retirement. "I must admit that is has been on my mind now and then, now more after this loss," said Martin, whose reserved style is reminiscent of the classic, tight-stroking and modest-serving players of the 1960s and 1970s. "However, I'll know when it is time and I won't stay any longer than when reality sets in."

Melzer, currently ranked No. 48 in the annual ATP Tour standings, appeared frazzled early as he disputed calls made on serves by a far linesman. The same linesman later caught the ire of Martin, who was called out on several returns.

"He was tough to play, and his experience showed the entire match," Melzer said. "I had a tough time playing under the lights, since I haven't been in many night matches. Once I made the adjustment, I turned things around. Melzer will play the winner of Tuesday's match between Igor Andreev of Russia and Albert Costa of Spain.

Re: Tennis Austria

HURRAY FOR JURGEN!!!!! Keep winning, kid!!

Melzer upsets Martin in first round at Commack
August 24, 2004

COMMACK, NY (AP) -- Jurgen Melzer rallied to a 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 upset victory over Todd Martin in a first-round match of the TD Waterhouse Cup on Monday night.

Martin, a two-time Grand Slam finalist, was playing only his second tournament since Wimbledon. He split two previous matches this year with Melzer.

"He was tough to play, and his experience showed the entire match," Melzer said. "I had a tough time playing under the lights, since I haven't been in many night matches. Once I made the adjustment, I turned things around."

Melzer, in his sixth year as a pro, has yet to win a title. He was runner-up in Newport, R.I., last year.

Martin hasn't played much lately because of a sore knee that has led to muscle strains.

"I intended to play more tournaments to prepare myself for the U.S. Open," said Martin, whose record for the year dropped to 10-14.

"This tournament was good enough to give me a wild card, so I will have had some competition before next week."

The 34-year-old Martin has considered retiring from tennis.

"I must admit that is has been on my mind now and then, now more after this loss," Martin said. "However, I'll know when it is time and I won't stay any longer than when reality sets in."

Wayne Ferriera, who defeated David Sanchez in the first round of the Australian Open in January, breezed past him again, 6-2, 6-3.

In other matches, Jan-Michael Gambill outlasted qualifier Richard Gasquet, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (3); Fernando Verdasco defeated Alberto Martin, 6-4, 3-6, 6-1; and Thomas Enqvist, a finalist in 2000 who is playing in the tournament for the fifth time, beat Julien Benneteau 6-3, 7-6 (4).

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!
