Good stuff Oli.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Ollie looked very good. Easy tactics though, really exposed that shitty Becker backhand. Didn't face a single breakpoint, which illustrates exactly how much better he was in the rallies.

Olivier won the vast majority of the baseline rallies the whole match. Becker served very well on the big points to squeak out the first set but Oli just methodically took over the next two sets. Great result here, coming through qualifying.
Nothing to lose against Djokovic

well done, oli!!! it is a shame this new ranking system sucks so bad for players trying to recoup their ranking. small tournaments like this just dont offer enough points relative to the bigger events.

I remember the Halle quarterfinals three years ago when Rochus had a couple of match points on Federer. It'd be sweet if Oli took the title this year.

Another Game for Milos

the fact that Ollie is really short, on grass the ball doesn't bounce up so high so it's a more comfortable height to attack the ball, and he doesn't have as much struggle bending for low slices...probably.

Another fact to consider is that Rochus is playing huge mugs.

Mugs? Vicente, Petzschner, and Becker? Surely you jest.
