Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

The tournament is based on the French money events. Higher ranked players such as Millman automatically advance through the group stages into the final rounds.

Here's a link to the format because I can't be bothered to explain it all

It's about halfway down.

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

Good move just to play a couple of matches before the playoff.

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".

Oh, alright. Thank you. Actually I was surprised it had such a high money prize. In PL it's so shit I remember by buddy (named Bednarek, he plays doubles in challenger circuit) went to France for such event having only 10 Euro on him, no money
poor life of a journeyman

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

John is still a bit worried about the shins, but should get through his 1st match.

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".

I really hope that Johnny will still get a wc. I am sure he will. Such a quality player and person. Come on mate.

Duck was serving very well and pulling out shoelace volleys like Becker. John was a bit passive from the back as well, which didn't help him. Played a very average breaker and Duck didn't make many errors.

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".

I've had a very agressive form of this injury for almost ten years now. And I can tell you that it is super annoying and painful, but it doesn't effect your play. You should be able to perform at 100%, but won't be able to perform day after day. Probably prevention, because if you let it come to far, like I did, you won't be able to play fully during your entire career...

Re: John "the Mailman" Millman Cheering Thread

Johnny has been hitting with Dolgopolov and it was a question of being a bit underdone, but it's not likely he will get a WC.

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".
