He played extremely well. No wonder he likes the Houston clay

Congrats Juergen. He arrived at Houston with an 1-8 season record, he really seems to like playing this tournament.

His second tournament final and his best showing in a TMS were both on clay, unsurprisingly both in German-speaking events, and he always performs well in Houston. Clay is a good surface for him, bearing in mind he moves well on it and his dropshots can surprise a lot of players. I hope he can break his duck tomorrow, perhaps that will finally give Tennis-X something better to say in reference to him than those dire "'Tuna' Melzer" puns.

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.

This result was expected. He could beat Haas in the final.

YEAH, great job, Jürgen! Just what I hoped for at the beginning of the week to turn around his crappy season!
I was very glad to see this result!

This equation works sometimes He doesn't have an outstanding good surface, nor an outstanding bad one (maybe indoor he could play better).

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Keep up the good work Jürgen. Either a singles or doubs win... I'll be happy either way, though he's made us wait too long for a final / title in singles . (And his ranking needs to start going up instead of down )
