Re: o*Ye Olde Castle vol.34

montanes is gaining confidence and momentum. he can derail melzer if he can stay away from his big topspin forehand.

Safin
By Douglas Robson July 13, 2010

Marat Safin may have hung up his racquets, but he hasn’t left tennis altogether. Now he’s taking care of business as a Russian tennis official.

During his colorful tennis career, Marat Safin did not seem cut from diplomatic cloth. He spoke from the cuff (often outrageously), demolished hundreds of racquets (usually furiously), and of course famously yanked down his shorts after a brilliant winner at the French Open (spontaneously). But just a few months removed from the tour, the two-time major winner with a strong libertine streak is glad-handing officials and selling himself as a member of both the Russian Olympic committee and the Russian Tennis Federation. Or as he puts it with a broad smile: “Now I have to run around and be nice to everybody.”

Since announcing at the start of 2009 that he would hang up his racquets at the end of the season—a decision the 30-year-old seemed to regret as his ranking dropped and his tolerance for unending retirement questions evaporated—Safin defied speculation that he would sit back on his wealth and just…chill. In December, Safin was elected to his country’s Olympic committee and he’s also working behind the scenes in Russian tennis.

Yeah, Melzer's volleys will be a bit troubling, but if Montanes can do some good passes he could break Melzer once or twice. Good thing about Albert, is that even when he's down a set he can win.

Yes. He is working with the Russian olympic committee and is going to take over the management of the Kremlin Cup. He was helping out the DC cup last weekend too.. He has been quite busy!

Re: o*Ye Olde Castle vol.34

A reporter asked him if he would ever coach Dinara and he said "do you want me to hang myself?"

Re: o*Ye Olde Castle vol.34

Fucking unreal effort from Vinciguerra, I mean the way he saved that 3rd MP was quite unreal, Soderling was hitting the ball great yet he somehow forced the UE out of him. Still I can't see Soderling losing this, but what a Spartan effort from Vinciguerra this is.
