Sydney Qualies: Xavier Malisse trumps Gabashvili, Mannarino and Luczak

Very big scoreline considering Gabashvili's form in 2008, considering this is his best surface and considering Malisse's rather flaky return to the Tour last season.

Maybe it'll signal a strong return by the Belgian in 2009.

Well done Malisse.

I hope that the case too, Martijn

Too early to say. Let him try to qualify first. He didn't succeed last week in Brisbane.

Subsequently crushed Mannarino, 6-3 6-1. Of course it's still in the early stages, but these are very convincing scorelines, especially over Gabashvili.

Good scorelines over both, but, to me, Gabashvili is a Poor Man's Tursunov, and isn't Mannarino struggling to find his feet after some sort of injury from the tail-end of last season?

Nevertheless, I hope this a sign that Malisse is getting back to the sort of level of play that can enable him to make a full-time return to ATP level.

Yes, Adrian had some injury problems, and was sick in the off-season from what I heard.

I also agree about the comment on Gaba, but I find both scorelines against players who know how to play on this surface pretty impressive.

Re: Sydney Qualies: Xavier Malisse trumps Gabashvili and Mannarino

If Malisse was out of shape, he could have lose to any of these. Instead, he demolished them. Good indicator, what else did you people expect, double bagels?

Re: Sydney Qualies: Xavier Malisse trumps Gabashvili and Mannarino

he played well at the belgian masters, easily won the tournament. his hair is coming back as well at least at the masters. He has the most potential of all Belgian players.

Luczak tomorrow, probably won't be as easy as Luczak had good wins today too.
