I don't understand how the heck Yani made it through to the MD on clay. He really is a great fighter with a lot of heart, but still, this is very surprising to me.
It has been known for a while that Witten's one of the best US players outside the Top 80 on clay.
I totally agree. Yani just had a HUGE heart, and apparently lives for these qualies as he has qualified for 3 of last 4 majors. Qualified on the grass on Wimbledon last year, not one of his best surfaces. The way he's been playing lately, even on hard, I thought Brzezicki would smoke him. If now, Junqueira would surely beat him. And there is absolutely no way he would win a final qualy round match on clay. But he's a champ. Gotta salute him. Love the guy
Really nice, no whining on court, just down to business. Mike
