It's good, he can get three matches in before qualies at the AO, he plays like this, then he can qualify, of course this is an exho.

Cibulkova's birthday present to Hrbaty was funny " I am too sexy for my age" will be on his desktop.

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".

I am surprised what happened to James forehand. He was mishitting a lot of balls. Why was he sweating so much?

Blake improves his awful record in the TB of the deciding set A couple years ago he lost in Hopman Cup 6-4 4-6 6-7 to another Slovak - Kucera.

I am very happy with the way Dominik played tonight. He was aggressive and did not make many errors. Of course he plays better when playing for his country but if he can even play close to this form he will qualify for the AO and not sustain the kind of losses he did in 2008.

Tonight he showed the kind of form he had when he was top 20. He always starts the year well and obviously he has been doing a lot of training in the off season to help himself have a good 2009.

I'm really not shocked, to be honest...didn't like what I saw of Blake at the end of last season. Obviously he has had a couple of months to find his head/game...but it looked like he was losing his "edge" a little, and, given the style he executes, that is potentially rather problematic for him.
