Interesting that he was asked how he would approach this match yesterday considering Koubek had a gaint killing record playing in India (last year he beat Mario Ancic in Mumbai and this year Moya in Chennai), he said "I am playing at my best tennis, This time he's going to stop in the quarters."
WoW. Nice attitude man. Even if its only against 55 ranked player, instead of the usual 'he is a great player' cliche.
That's the attitude he needs - no more Mr. Nice Guy. Nice start to what will hopefully be a good fall season. He needed a few wins, even if it is in an "MM Tourney" to build up his confidence. And Koubeck is not bad - he played a few really good sets against Blake in the U.S. Open.
