Re: Andreas Vinciguerra

I was so sorry for Vinci and SWE when I read Vinci lost after having MP
Hope the Swedes will win anyway.

It's 2-1 after the doubles.

Re: Andreas Vinciguerra

As expected Vinciguerra got a WC into Stockholm.

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".

Re: Andreas Vinciguerra

Vinci is playing Nicolas Devilder in the 1st round and then if he wins, he will play Berdych.

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".

Re: Andreas Vinciguerra



This is the Swedish article on the Stockholm Open site which has more info than the English one.

http://www.stockholmopen.se/t3s.asp?...0&x=1&a=445370

"Det är tennis man älskar"

I dagens andra match på centercourten besegrade Andreas Vinciguerra fransmannen Nicolas Devilder i två raka set 6-4 6-1. Även Kristof Vliegen är klar för den andra omgången efter att ha besegrat Nicolas Massu 6-2 6-4.

Andreas Vinciguerra har haft stora skadeproblem under flera år och har därför inte lyckats prestera sin bästa tennis på länge. Framgångarna som många förväntade sig efter hans finalplatser i Båstad och ATP-titel i Köpenhamn har uteblivit men nu ser det äntligen ljusare ut för skåningen. Under den senare delen av 2006 har han vunnit alltfler matcher på Challengernivå, bland annat segrade han i Manerbios challenger. "Vince" tilldelades ett wild-card i årets If Stockholm Open och ikväll han visade att han var väl värd det. Skåningen tog kommandot direkt trots att han kändes sig lite nervös.

- Det kändes lite nervöst i början, det är en speciell känsla att vara tillbaka på centercourten, men det släppte efter ett tag, sa Vinciguerra efter matchen.

Vinciguerra behöll kommandot setet ut och tränaren Magnus Larsson kunde notera 6-4 i adeptens favör. I det andra setet dominerade Vince totalt och han kunde enkelt ta hem setet med 6-1. Matchen bjöd på trevlig tennis mellan de båda vänsterhänta spelarna som hela tiden sökte lägen för sina forehandslag.

- Jag spelade ganska bra, det är alltid svårt med första innematchen. Det är skönt att få vinna, sammanfattade skåningen sin insats.

- Det har varit tungt med skadorna men innerst inne har jag känt att jag vill spela tennis, det är tennis man älskar, svarade kämpen på frågan om han funderat på att lägga av när skadeproblemen var som värst.

Vinciguerras målsättning för året är att återta en plats bland de hundra bästa. Senast han befann sig på rätt sida om hundra-strecket var den tredje november 2003.

I nästa omgång ställs Vince mot den tredjeseedade tjecken Tomas Berdych vilket kommer att bli en tuff match för hemmaspelaren.

- Det ska bli intressant att möta Berdych, en bra värdemätare, kommenterade Vince sitt motstånd i andra omgången.

English:

It's tennis that I love

In todays second match on centre court Andreas Vinciguerra defeated Frenchman Nicolas Devilder in 2 straight sets 6-4 6-1. Kirstof Vliegen is through to the second round after defeating Nicolas Massu 6-2 6-4.

Andreas Vinciguerra has had many injury problems for several years and therefore has not been able to play his best tennis for a long time. The successes that many expected from him after his final place in Båstad and winning in Copenhagen have failed to be realised but now at last it's looking brighter for the Scanian. In the later part of 2006 he has won more and more matches at the Challenger level, among others he won the Manerbios challenger.

"Vince" received a Wild Card into this years Stockholm Open and this evening he showed that he was well worth it. The Scanian took command straight away despite feeling a little nervous. "It's a special feeling to be back on the centre court and in the beginning I felt a litte nervous, but I relaxed after some time," said Vincivuerra after the match.

Vinciguerra kept command and at the end of the set and coach Magnus Larsson noted 6-4 in his charge's favour. In the 2nd set Vince totaly dominated and he easily took the set 6-1. The match offered pleasant tennis beween both lefthanders who for the whole time were trying to use the court with their forehands.

"I played fairly weell, it is always difficult with the first indoor match. Det is great to get the win," summarised the Scanian about his performance.

"It has been difficult with the injuries but in my heart I have known that I will play tennis, it's tennis I love," answered the fighter the question about his thoughts when the injury problems where at their worst.

Vinciguerra's goals for the year were to finish inside the top 100. The last time he found himself inside the top 100 was the 3rd of November 2003.

In the next round Vince plays the 3rd seeeded Czech Tomas Berdych which will be a tough match for the home player.

"It shall be interesting to meet Berdych, a very good standard to gauge where I am at the moment", commented Vinci about his 2nd round opponent.

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".

Re: Andreas Vinciguerra

I noticed Vinci's doubles match was cancelled. Does anyone know why?

I'd love to see Vinci back on the tour. He's had a long troubled road back, but this tournament has been encouraging.

No, he is playing with Johan Landsberg against Björkman/McEnroe at the moment. But they are about to loose...

Re: Andreas Vinciguerra

I will translate an article about the match later.

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".

Vinci vilar
Andreas Vinciguerra hade planerat spel i challengers under november med målsättning att ta sig ner till 100-strecket på rankingen innan 2006 är slut. Nu känner han av ett ömmande knä och tar det säkra före det osäkra och avstår internationellt spel för vila, träning och elitseriespel.

- Det är ingen större fara, någon inflammation, men jag ligger så pass bra till så känns formen bra i början av året blir det ATP-kval och kval i Australian Open, säger Vinci förhoppningsfullt.

Translation : The short version

- Vinci planned to play challengers in November to reach his goal of being in the top 100 before the end of 2006. He has a sore knee and is playing it safe and is taking a break from international play for rest, training and playing Eliteserien (Div 1 tennis).

- It's nothing very dangerous, just some inflammation, wants to be in good form at the start of the year to play qualies for ATP events and qualify for the AO, said a hopeful Vinciguerra.

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".

Re: Andreas Vinciguerra

He again is out for mimimum 6 weeks. I think his career is over now. And it has never really startet. Only 2,3 years in the pros without any injury. That is so sad. He had a lot of talent.

Allways Good luck to:
