He still really has to fix this first serve % though... 21% in the final set against a top 3 player is unacceptable. For me it's still the biggest weakness left in his game...

Great week for him nonetheless , it'd just be nice to see him shore up those things in his game

I agree Deb.

Great week though! And hey, he won a set! After the first set, I wasn't really expecting even that

Pictures, because he's just too cute not to

Regardless of today, still a great week for Mardy Really hope it is just the start of a great rest of the season.

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light

Re: The "Well, Serving at 34% is OK if you beat Roger!!!!!!!!" 2008 Cheering Thread!

one of the best things is his ranking - he was almost out of the top 100 and could've had a hard time getting into events and even the slams. but he'll rise up to #40 and has a great chance to be seeded at Wimbledon, which would be really huge for him considering grass is his best surface (according to him). Look at his activity from last year - he's got practically NOTHING to defend until AUGUST. In fact from Feb to August last year he won TWO matches

only room to grow

I h ave to admit I'm relieved Nole got the whale in the end! But if Mardy had managed a higher serve % the score could have been very different

Just wanted to come over here to say congratulations to Mardy and his fans for a great week at Indian Wells

I'm not going to lie about it - I was supporting Novak in the final - but I truly was impressed by Mardy's level throughout this tournament. I hope he can move on from this to establish himself higher in the rankings and do well in 2008.
