oh, and i really hope he can do well in the Champaign challenger. if he gets to the final, i'm thinking about making the 2.5 hour drive down there to see it. it would be only $5 for me to get in! i would love to see JMG v. Delic, or Andersen (though not likely) or Kendrick (also not likely).
so GOOOO BOYS!
Jan-Michael Gambill<>Flavio Saretta<>Andre Sa<>Amer Delic
Soderling xx Pim Pim xx Jonas xx Ryderstedt xx Magnus
Jan-Mike won first round, but then had a horrible loss against a german qualifer
what a wasted chance the draw was wide open
but it seems like he can win just one match; never two in a row
what is just wrong with him??
That German qualifier has won an NCAA title and has been playing pretty well lately. He is riding a lot of confidence. Jan-Mike, on the other hand, is not. I suspect that the 3 setter on Tuesday may have taken a little bit out of him, but he hung tough and got both sets to TB's, so he must have doing some things right in this match.
He hasn't put two together since he qualifed for Tokyo a few weeks back. I believe he will work through this.
Best twitter posts of the epic match:
@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
