Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

Yeh I think he just needs confidence... Still disappointed though. I hope he doesnt play to do his best, He should be playing with the hunger to win.

It just gets better

I guess now that he doesn't have to qualify, he can play this tournament. He did well last year, maybe he can do it again

Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

bad news marks not listed in the main draw for ordina... now it seems things are fucked up... the last hope for mark is he gets some matches at the Boodles exhibition event.. agassi, haas, gonzalez, massu, blake and nalbandian are playing.. not sure if theres a spot for mark.

mark needs matches

Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

as it turns out - mark did get the WC into Ordina but has rejected it so he can play at the Boodles challenge. Im happy about it. Boodles challenge has a great line-up and mark is garunteed at least 3 matches!

the 2006 players:
ANDRE AGASSI
DAVID NALBANDIAN
JAMES BLAKE
NICOLAS MASSU
FERNANDO GONZALEZ
RADEK STEPANEK
TOMMY HAAS
MARK PHILIPPOUSSIS

Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

............finally we know where mark is playing - not ordina, not boodles - he is playing the Marsh classic. He's got 2 matches against Nadal, and Nieminen.

I so wish i could watch mark play nadal - two of my favourite players, playing against eachother for the first time!

go mark!

Yeh Same here, my two faves, but im goin for Mark, I want him to have a tough match that he wins in a struggle, He needs it for his confidence and for his mental strength, if its an easy straight sets win its not so great cos it could be a one off thing, as a result of him simply having a "hot match".

Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

they havent played yet.The match is today... i have no idea what time in london, as the official site for the tournament is the shittest ever... but im sure the aussie press will report on the match.

Im not too sure how mark will go. I dont know how he will handle nadal's topspin, mark will have to serve very well and try and put pressure on nadals 2ns serve. Im hoping at the very least the match is competitive, but it would be sweet confidence boost if mark wins.

Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

The grass will assist Mark in terms of that wicked topspin, Nadals topspin should be dampened somewhat by the fact that grass produces a low bounce, I would think that because of the fact that Mark is 6'5 nadals shots should fall into quite a comfortable hitting range for him, so he wont have to bend so much as you usually do on grass, verses a player with relatively flat groundies.

Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

i dont know what the fuck is going on... i dont think they played yesterday. Instead nadal played Nieminen and won 7-5, 3-6,10-6. Mark should be playing nadal friday.
