Re: *~!Waskeholics Unite!~*

There's an interview of Alex by Jesse Cooper in Houston's web site. It's one of the worst interview videos you can imagine

No idea. Probably a local guy working for the tournament.

Re: *~!Waskeholics Unite!~*

I can't hear the interview clearly too. It's seems the tournament use a basketball court as players lounge and there are people playing basketball. So, it's very noisy as the camcorder they used is likely for home videos with built-in microphone, not professional.

They talked about his first match and I won't get into the detail.

Alex said his coash stays at home because his wife is having a baby. That's why Sebastian is travelling with him to South and North Americas. Somehow, he (younger Waske) got a WC to play even though he's not a professional and not really practised. But he/they has/have fun.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: *~!Waskeholics Unite!~*

yes, that is good effort!

Do you think Germany sould try double with two doubles specialists like USA?
Problem is only (I think rule says) when one of two single player (Haas/Kiefer) are injured from Friday to Sunday, you may not nominate new single player and you would have to play with Waske or Kohlmann on Sunday singles.

But advantage is that Tommy can rest during Saturday for single matches. And Kohlmann is good doubles player, always was. Same for Waske.

Albert Costa forever +++ Tommy Haas +++ Ivo Karlovic +++ Peter Luczak


RAFA owns Fedclown ~~~ H2H record 14-7 -- ~~~ 3 different GS finals included
Byebye Fedjerk, your dominance period is over! Nadal will win like 10 more Slams!



Zero tolerance against dopers!

The major difference between US and Germany is non of the single players from US are passable doubles player. It took PMac a very long time before he uses Bryans in DC doubles. (the reason is the one you supplied above, if one of the single players is injured, the team is in BIG trouble) Currently, all singles players from Germany, Haas, Kiefer and Schuettler can team up with Waske in doubles while they can still play singles. And if Waske is injured, Germany still has the option of Schuettler and Kiefer teamed up for doubles. That's what happened in the tie vs South Africa.

Re: *~!Waskeholics Unite!~*

Best doubles team would be Haas/Petzschner imo.

But of course, with results like that Waske will stay in the team. Well done!
