Xavier Malisse d. Björn Phau 6-3, 6-0, 6-2

UPDATE!

R2 Xavier Malisse d. Björn Phau 6-3, 6-0, 6-2

R1 Xavier Malisse d. (13) Jarkko Nieminen 6-4, 7-5, 6-2


The X-man seems to be in excellent form!

With Pau and probably Srichaphan coming up, he meets two players he both defeated during the previous US Open Series.

Nadal in the fourth round must be possible for Xavier. To equalize his achievement from 2005 (R4 Agassi d. Malisse 6-3, 6-4, 6-7, 4-6, 6-2) would be great!


Xavier Malisse & Kristof Vliegen & Olivier Rochus

Steve Darcis - Dick Norman - Christophe Rochus

Desein - Bemelmans - Masson - Mertens - Authom - Wauters

Excellent win by Xavi, but please build on this result.

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".

thought x-man was injured, this is surprising

I think X-man showed he has a quality power game when he took a set off FedEx in Toronto..he has the game to become top 10, if only he applied himself more in the majors

has the game but not the head

I remember his matches a bunch of years ago and I was always thinking that he would definitely be a top 10 player but he never succeded.
he hasnt got the brain for that breakthrough I think

He's got the goods but he is so inconsistent. It all depends on the mood of the day.
This is a good win but noone is more capable than Xavier to go on and lose a match which is easy on paper. I have learnt to take things as they come and not to expect anything.

I was hoping to catch a fourth set. He must be playing really well to knock off the fighting Finn in straights.
