Is Max Mirnyi your favorite for RG? :))

He beat one solid clay court player and two former FO champions on their home soil. Discuss.

Re: Is Max Mirnyi your favorite for RG? :))

He will go far this year in Paris, but then have the misfortune to draw Bjorkman in the second week and get thumped again.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Of course he is!

I bet he will challenge with the likes of Greg Rusedski, Jonas Bjorkman and Ivo Karlovic for the crown at the FO

just keep him away from Jonas

Max has a habit of when he does well at a tourn, he does very well.

he's also beaten Guga on clay, and that was when Guga was at his prime best.

Max was always going to be one of the more dangerous floaters at RG. I'm thrilled to see that he's moved up to "favourite" status, where he belongs.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Is Max Mirnyi your favorite for RG? :))

We should put him in the same boat as Stepanek, Philippoussis and Arthurs then, and maybe add Rusedski and Karlovic for "splitting-sides" value!

Mirnyi's current run is slightly behind the form shown by Muster in '95.

Re: Is Max Mirnyi your favorite for RG? :))

No. But would love the see, a serve & volleyer like him making the QF at RG as it happened regularly in the past. Though I'm afraid it won't happen again.
