Jurgen Melzer is terrific

Jurgen lost today in Kitzbuhel after playing great all week. He can feel proud he reached the quater finals. This is the best he has ever done in Kitzbuhel.

Tomorrow Jurgen will play doubles with Julian Knowle, his good friend. Hope they are able to win. They are playing agiansst another Austrian Stefan Koubek and his Greman partner Kohlschreiber. I like them all, but Jurgen is my number one favorite so want Jurgen and Julian to win this time.

I don't know. Understand that Massu may have wanted to come to the states for the hard court season. He was very tired and serving poorly. That is only a guess.

Jurgen plays in Sopot next week. Then he is taking two weeks vacation. Yipes just before the USO? I don't understand but it means he will not be in Toronto or Cincy this summer.

Good lluck to Jurgen and Julian in the doubles today against Stefen and Philipp. Glad the rain has stopped over there.

There are some nice pictures of all the Austrians on the Kitz site.

Re: Jurgen Melzer is terrific

I'm just wondering if this guy reminds anyone of Jurgen? His name is David, he's from the Aussie big brother series this year, and he's a gorgeous farmer (think Brokeback Mountain!). You might have had to see the show / more of him, to see the similarity I can see. Maybe it's just the pretty hair, but aside from David having a wide mouth, and Jurgen having a tiny one.... I think they look a little alike. Just need to find a better photo!!

From those photos I do not see a similarity. Yes, find a better one. Maybe you miss Jurgen so much you just want to see him in David.

By the way I saw Brokeback Mountian and was not thrilled with it. The blips they showed to get us to watch led me to believe it would be different. My son thought it was not worth seeing. The country side was great and the acting good. Just did not enjoy the subject matter.

Re: Jurgen Melzer is terrific

Jurgen lost a tough match today in Sopot to Monaco who is playing very well now. It was a three setter. Jurgen had the lead in the third set and let it gat away. Frustration for his fans and more so for him.

In the doubles Jurgen and Jullian won an extremely hard fought match against two Polish players. If Oliver Marach and Kubot win their doubles they will play J & J in the quarter finals. Oliver is still int the singles as he beat Waske today.

They play the third match on court 1 tomorrow against Kubot/Marach. It will be a great win for which ever team comes out on top. They both very good teams. I want J & J to win.

Re: Jurgen Melzer is terrific

Nimi went to the kitz tournament, and had the following write-ups of Jurgens matches...
http://israblog.nana.co.il/blogread....ogcode=4548542

Melzer d Robredo 6-2 7-5
In this Davis-Cup like match, Melzer was playing out of his mind. He advanced forward alot, and Robredo's forehand, his mightiest strength, just wasn't clicking. The Spaniard led 5-3 in the second set and had set-points, but Melzer stunned me by coming back for the win. I don't quite know if Robredo tried his hardest, seeing as the North American Masters are on soon. Also, I haven't decided wether I'm happy about this result - Robredo is a big player, of course, but Melzer brings the local crowd to life, he's quite a star around here, and seeing as Marach lost surprisingly to Eitzinger (who lost to Calleri), he is the last local man standing alongside Koubek, who plays Lapentti next. Exciting stuff.

Melzer d Pavel 7-5 6-3
I already stated my love to Pavel's game, but Melzer was playing out of his mind again. Hitting -shot winners off first service returns, blasting some amazing backhands down the line and especielly firing on all cylinders on his serve, which is huge. Nothing much to say - Melzer was just great, and Pavel is not strong enough to deal with him on clay when he's playing like that. The local hero is starting to look like he has a real shot at the title - he's so strong mentally this week!

Youzhny d Melzer 6-3 3-6 6-3
This was the match of the day, with the crowd coming to life yet again thanks to Melzer, whom I grew to like. The local boy wasn't at his best at all - he was still flashy, still hit some huge backhands down the line, followed plenty of shots to the net (and you know how much I love net-rushers!) and tried some ridiculous -shots off returns of serve, but it just wasn't clicking. He served really well in the second set, but couldn't find his serve at the right moments of the third set and didn't take his chances on the Youzhny service games.

Youzhny played a great match. This was the first time I watched him this week. He is really a player who is metamorphosic - I remember his imitation of the Becker serve back in 2002 and his strange Borg like backhand. He is much more elegant now, can rally superbly and is just generally a great player, but I just can't get to like him. I also can't understand why he's not having a great year - he looks really good. He has no weakness as far as the groundstrokes are concerned, he's quite fast and has a good serve. I hope he'll keep this up, I might not like him too much, but he deserves to do well.

Koubek/Kohlschreiber d Melzer/Knowle 6-4 7-5
Well, I already declared my love for Philip, who was today on court with three different left-handed Austrians. I discovered that Knowle hits two-fisted shots from both sides, also on volleys. He thinks he's Frew Macmillan. I don't get what is so good about Melzer/Knowle, I think they're only ranked so high because they play together alot. Knowle is really not an impressive player, Melzer is the leading force of the duo by every aspect and Knowle missed so many easy shots, doesn't have an impressive serve nor really good volleys.

Melzer was quite good today, but the most amazing player on court was Stefan Koubek. I don't know how many of you remember his great runs at the starts of both 2002 and 2003, when he made the Aussie Open quarters and won the Doha title. He is a very impressive player - quite short and small, but hits the ball very hard and is fast as a tiger. He played some really great tennis, chasing down smashes and hitting some unbelivable reflex volleys. I'll be all for him and Philip in the final, which they'll play against...

Melzer was quite good today


I want to stand up for Julian and say he is just coming back from a very bad injury and that may be part of the reason for his poor play. When I have seen Jurgen and Julian play they have both played very well. Julian usually has a good serve, not great, but okay and his net play is normally great. I do believe Jurgen is better at the net, but I have seen Julian make many spectacular shots at net. They are good friends and do try to play together often, but that is not the only reason they are ranked so high. I hope she gets to see them play at their best sometime.

Jurgen really is a good doubles player. I think he enjoys being on the court when the pressure is on two guys and not just him.
