Re: Asian people especially in Dubai please cheer Paradorn

Philippoussis is another favourite of mine so I would not like to see him & Srichaphan going head-to-head; but since Mark P has just lost 4-matches in a Row & Paradorn has just lost 3-matches in a Row ->> Atleast if they played each other it would guarantee one of these nice guys a chance to break their unfortunate losing streaks!!!

It's a coincidence that both these players are virtually unbeatable when they find top form & hitting winners all-over-court>> but as soon as their confidence dips they really struggle to win even 1st Round matches anywhere. Also Mark P & Srichaphan are both coached by their respective Fathers ->> I think it says something about their loyalty to family(nice to share success) BUT it's probably halting their development as players!!
*Imagine if either Philippoussis or Srichapahan were to get a coach like Brad Gilbert or Cahill;~ that would trasform them overnight into street-fighting hustlers who could win matches even when their A-Game drops to 60%.
....As an Aussie I want to see Philippoussis make the most of his potential with the right coach*.
....As a lover of World Tennis I want to see Srichaphan make the most of talent by getting a better tactical mentor**.
Anyway it's just the beginning of the year >> we'll see what happens in the next 9months(@_@),. please let one of these guys win something big!!

Re: Asian people especially in Dubai please cheer Paradorn

Hey guys, in a way as a Thai I do understand what tangerine_dream said. Actually there is no need to try to encourage "all Asian people" supporting Paradorn. Any people from different nationalities can support him if they like him and tennis is well-known as an individual sport, so I'm not that proud if Paradorn's winning some tournaments but I would be delighted if Ball can display his great tennis during the Olympics or something big like that. Then we can call it "Representation".

Paradorn represents all Asian people?

It's just something that Paradorn is trying to promote TENNIS to his fellow Asian kids, so that they would come out and try to hit the ball. That's all. Don't be that serious.

You know I'm a bit upset here in Thailand because Thai people watch tennis because they want Paradorn to WIN. (which is not a good idea) They should watch and then learn from it and try to improve their game. And that hurts Paradorn because all the pressure is under his belt. There is no need that you are Asian people, therefore you should support Paradorn or Lee Hyung Taik or Leander Paes. That's very funny.

Re: Asian people especially in Dubai please cheer Paradorn

It's understandable why thai people feelling so proud of him and want to see him win. They didn't have any sporting superstar like him before.

But finally they will accept that winning & losing is very normal.

If Paradorn still has ankle injury and Hrbaty stay hot, I'll not surprise at all if he lose at the first hurdle again.

Paradorn needs to construct points better. I don't think he is smart enough to make the most of his talent. He just seems to be a ball basher for the most part which is sad.

Re: Asian people especially in Dubai please cheer Paradorn

When he "bashes" the balls, they usually go in. He really doesn't need to play what you call smart tennis in order to win. Anyways, he can't change his style of play this late in his career. Just like Gonzalez is never going to invite defense into his game.

No no he makes errors because of his ball bashing. He has moments of nailing winner after winner but he also can get very sloppy and put himself into a hole that he can't climb out of. He just lacks patience and enough brains to put together point construction to beat the top guys. He could get better but I think the one guy is right. He needs a real coach. Someone that will hone his shotmaking, because he is really solid overall, just gets lost out there.

No.. that's not true, at least from the match against Hrbaty yesterday.


Here's my opinion after watching him play against Hrbaty yesterday.

- still relying on his first serve , trying to hit aces (come on ! placement , not just power)

- no patience like Dirk said, overhitting the ball at times and sometimes trying to hit the ball too early and too hard. (That's why Paradorn did hit the ball into the middle of the net several straight times, while Dominik waiting for his opportunities.) That's why he won 3 titles already.

- There was only one game that Paradorn did close out his service game easily which was the second game of the whole match but since then he struggled to get through while Dominik (who was sick) finished off the points easier.

- I would say he was lucky yesterday because the very fist game that he won, Dominik handed the game to Paradorn. Ball did not do anything. Let's hope he can find his best shots against IVan today.

Paradorn has slam potential written all over him. He just needs tactics to and a brain that works for 3 out of 5 set or 2 out of 3. I think he needs a new coach because he is so close to becoming a consistent top ten player.

I really agree on this. Paradorn is a great player but sometimes he's just bashing balls all the time. The one good match I saw him playing was this year tata open final vs Moya, he shots were solid and was patient in constructing points but finally lost it when again became too anxious at the last few points.

Maybe a good coach can give him guides on playing his game more effectively. I'd love to see him climbing up to top 5 one day.

Re: Asian people especially in Dubai please cheer Paradorn

I can't believe I am saying this Dirk, but I agree with that, he has the talent to do very well in Slams, he just needs to move to that next level which requires more consistency.

He needs points now, as the clay season comes up he won't do that well, he can't just go for winners on clay and expect success.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Um yeah George it feels good, you should try it more often. Paradorn is always going to be screwed on clay. I don't think he really cares about doing well on clay either.
