yeah, he's very talented. I saw him play several times and he has a lot of talent (great backhand, good serve). He'll be a player to watch in the future, and he had very good results at the U-16 category the past years, though he always was losing in the Finals against another talented Spaniard, Boluda-Purkiss.

Here are two videos of Martí playing:

Thanks for posting the videos. His games looks very good indeed. I may be wrong, but his shots totally remember me of Gasquet's ones Specially the backhand. He seems to have a good slice too

Yes, I've read a lot of people here talking about Carlos Boluda. Where has he been? Only junior tournaments (I'm not used to following them)? And will he try some futures this year?

well, Boluda is only 15 y.o. right now, he's still very young. He usually plays Junior tournaments of low grade, and the last tournament he played was at Portugal last month (he took the title after beating Martí in the semifinals)

He usually loses when he plays against the best Junior players in the world (he got thrashed by Tomic [2-6 1-6] at Wimbledon this year), but he still has a lot of time to keep improving his game.

I don't know if he'll play a Future tournament this year (he still has not played any in 2008), but I'm sure that he'll start playing Futures regularly the next year (or at least he should do it)

You're welcome

I still didn't have the opportunity to watch a Boluda's match live. I only saw him playing at videos in YouTube

if he starts playing Futures, maybe I'll have a chance to see him

Well, I have chance to watch the most of Czech and Slovak players playing Futures tourneys in CZE or SVK, but I don´t think Martí or Bodula come to CZE or SVK to play Futures next year, so you will be probably only one who will have a chance to see them live

I also doubt that they'd go to CZE or SVK to play a Futures event

But well, there are more than 40 Futures in Spain during the year, and unfortunately, I don't have the chance to go to all of them

I always try to go to the tournaments in Barcelona and nearness. Two years ago there was a Challenger here but the ATP removed it from the calendar

It's possible Grigor to lose the semi tomorrow,because he is tired,but he has made more than enough in these three weeks - from Juniour US Open to now.Go Grisha win the title and then take a rest,getting ready for new challenges.

Rafael Nadal
