Re: The Mighty MM

Marinko and Gooch on court against each other now in Vancouver. It will be interesting to see how this match progresses.

Re: The Mighty MM

Marinko loses 1st set, despite having 7 break-point opportunities, then breaks Gooch twice to win 2nd set 6-2, now a break up in the 3rd, 4-2. Can he hold on to the break?
Gooch rallies, breaks back, 4-4.Going to the breaker?
Marinko 6-5 up, Gooch serving 0-15, now 30-30.
Match point to MM, Gooch serving at 30-40.
Marinko gets it on 2nd Match point, 7-5 in 3rd. Gooch served better but Marinko engineered 21 break points, converting 4 of them.
Well done MM, bad luck Gooch

Re: The Mighty MM

Great win against Beck in straights. Up against Millman now, may the best man win.

Re: The Mighty MM

Excellent result for Marinko. Well done. Two Ozzies up against each other, at least one guaranteed in the final round of qualies. Will be very interesting, think MM will have too much fire-power, but nerves and fitness may play a part.

Re: The Mighty MM

MM wil not be pleased losing that match to Millman, especially after winning 1st set 6-2. At least he lost to another Australian...

Re: The Mighty MM

Sacramento challenger round 1

Matosevic def. Yani 6-2 6-1

Nice easy win for Marinko first round, now faces Donald Young who he has beaten before. I think Marinko has a fair chance to make a run in Sacramento here.

Re: The Mighty MM

Re: The Mighty MM

Well done MM. At Indian Wells it was alleged by a poster in the general messages section of MTF that MM made a racist remark or something to Young but it wasn't confirmed by anyone else at the match and nothing ever happened in the form of an investigation but they did have words with each other towards the end of the match. Then in their last match they had quite a heated exchange when Young after losing the first set became annoyed at Matosevic's complaints to the umpire and confronted him at the changeover which Matosevic believed should have resulted in Young being defaulted. Should be a good match tp watch given that Young admitted that he caved in to Matosevic's mind games the last two times they met and I think you can be sure Matosevic won't be letting up in this match and Young has too much of an ego to ignore it.

Re: The Mighty MM

Matosevic won 62 63. Next up is Rik De Voest.De Voest will probably start as slight favourite but MM is more than capable of beating him.

Re: The Mighty MM

Good stuff MM, he really seems to have Young's number. I would love for him to break into the top 100, it would be good for the game to have an aggressive character playing regularly on the tour as long as he doesn't go overboard. Hopefully he keeps progressing and can have a good Aussie summer as well.

Re: The Mighty MM

MM lost in the Quarters to the experienced South African player Rik De Voest 57 64 46. De Voest had a break midway through the third but MM broke back and then De Voest broke MM at 3-3. Off to 50k Tiburon Challenger.

Re: The Mighty MM

50k Hard Challenger Tiburon, USA

[4] Ryan SWEETING (USA) vs QUALIFIER/SPECIAL EXEMPT
QUALIFIER/SPECIAL EXEMPT vs Alex KUZNETSOV (USA)
[Alt] Ryler DEHEART (USA) vs QUALIFIER/SPECIAL EXEMPT
Amer DELIC (BIH) vs [8] Marinko MATOSEVIC (AUS)

All Bosnian matchup in the first round. Delic's fourth match in his comeback. Is winless so far but the closeness of his matches against good opponents suggests the first win isn't far off. Marinko is the favourite to take this one out though. A random fact about Delic is he used to be coached by Craig Tiley when he was attending the University of Illinois.
